Sonia has been with Harcourts, the Property People since 2015 in the role of personal assistant to Garth Makowski, one of the most successful business owners of Harcourts. Prior to this she was in real estate sales for 4 years.
Sonia is also mother to three children and in her time has been a successful seamstress having had her own children’s wear label, evening and wedding gown label and has also owned a successful cup-cake business specialising in wedding and novelty cakes. Her passion and flair for creativity has resulted in an eventful career prior to real estate.
Sonia speaks of the adversities life has thrown at her and how she’s used those events to learn, grow and become a stronger woman. Her style of presenting is courageous, raw and truly inspirational as she talks about two big issues in today’s society: cancer and domestic violence and her refusal to take on the role of ‘victim’. As a speaker she will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions with her attitude of honesty, positivity and always approaching things with a sense of humour. You’ll take away with you a new way of looking at the trials we all face in life and will re-evaluate the things that are really important.
In closing, Sonia encourages us all not to make excuses, not to put things off, to live the life you want to now and live it with gratitude, making every moment count.
“None of us get out of life alive so be gallant, be great, be gracious and be grateful for the opportunities you have”.
