Some people know from a young age what they want to do for their career. But sometimes, a new opportunity comes when it’s least expected.
Marie Odongo owned her hairdressing salon in Perth CBD for 12 years but was faced with a decision because of the ongoing renovations. She could either relocate her business or take a different pathway. With a passion for real estate, she knew now was the time!
Move Homes was already familiar with Joe Tuazama and his work within the Organisation of African Communities. One conversation evolved into another, and before we knew it Marie had come on board. This was the opportunity Marie wanted to help her community into home ownership (without requiring thousands of dollars to make it happen).
As someone who migrated to Australia over 20 years ago, Marie has seen firsthand how the housing market has changed. Nothing stays the same forever, and that’s why Marie works closely to educate her clients.
“For those who want to get into their first homes or invest, I will be there to walk with you from the beginning to the end of the journey. As with my salon days, those who know me can testify that I’m honest, reliable and transparent, and my friendly nature is what I take with me as a home consultant.”
When she’s not busy attending community events or seeing her clients, Marie likes to spend time with friend and family, watching movies, cooking and of course dancing!
