Carrie Bond

founder, Bond Lifestyle Properties

“I hand-picked every person on my team because they have something very special about them. They won’t just sell or find your perfect property, but also enhance your life.”

Carrie Bond is the go-to Sales Executive on the South Coast for high-end homes with unique selling points, which frequently fly off the market thanks to her local knowledge, extensive contact book and wealth of experience. As part of a number of award-winning sales teams, Carrie has represented a wide range of properties across the Illawarra and NSW South Coast: from luxury farm escapes to beachside penthouses, modern developments and Heritage-protected properties. She works closely with vendors to uncover the story behind their home and to showcase the dream lifestyle or business opportunity it has to offer.

Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, the regional area inspired her early love of architecture and design. With academic achievements in science, life science, agriculture and business, she is both a creative and strategic thinker. This, coupled with a background in hospitality, means Carrie knows how to showcase your property at its best and attract crowds to every viewing.

From styling and photography, to viewings and negotiations, Carrie supports vendors through every stage of the selling process, ensuring they shine a spotlight on their property’s best features and the highlights of the local area — an area she genuinely loves.

In 2021, Carrie launched Bond Lifestyle Properties to offer a focused and personalised service — an agency where every home is a priority and every vendor feels supported, listened to and overjoyed with their result.

Our Team

Whitney Schadel

Assistant Agent

“Looking after a patient is the same as looking after a client. Sometimes, you need to be their counsellor, their mentor, their guide. Everyone, really, just craves security.”

For an agent with heart and a large dose of compassion, look no further than Whitney Schadel, who, as an assistant agent and a Registered Nurse, is passionate about both her vocations. The two careers are surprisingly similar, says Whitney. Both require patience, empathy, a listening ear and the ability to think two steps ahead of every situation.

Since entering the real estate industry as an assistant four years ago, Whitney has mastered every step of the real estate process, from appraisals, to viewings, negotiations and aftercare — ensuring that her clients end up feeling like friends.

As a South Coast local with young children and a love of horses, Whitney’s area insight includes the best schools, hospitals and family amenities, and a knowledge of rural properties.

Following in the family real estate business, she wants every client to feel valued and have a personalised experience.

Susannah Jarman

Assistant Agent

“In the team, I’m be the one streamlining the processes and simplifying the road to buying a property. I love it!”

With a background in medical sales and experience in running a successful business, Suzie’s superpower is taking a complex situation and making it feel simple. With a long interest in property, she met Carrie after buying her dream home on the South Coast. Now, she passes the same success to her clients.

Originally from Sydney, Suzie has experience in the art of building a property portfolio, with specialist knowledge in rural properties. She aims to demystify the process, whether you have questions about zoning, services, fencing or septic systems, and understands the unique experience of buying acreage.

Her experience also includes apartment, townhouses and developments. After raising three children in the area, Suzie can offer insight into local schools, sports clubs and services to support a growing family. A nature lover, ask her about the highlights of the South Coast landscape, from beaches to rivers and National Parks.
