AYRE Real Estate launched in June 2020, located in Sydney’s Hyde Park precinct with a promise to deliver an apartment focused agency for the city and inner-city property market. Having been out of agency since 2014 following the sale of his first agency Wilson Property Agents, but still involved in the property industry, Adrian was keen to establish a market-dominating agency in Sydney City. Adrian says, “We are incredibly proud to have been awarded Best New Office of the Year in the country, supporting our vision as the leading agency for prestige apartments in Sydney. “The city and inner-city apartment market requires a unique approach to deliver the best results and this highly specific segment is unlike any other. Agents servicing this market need to have certain skills and attributes to deliver the right outcomes. This award confirms our commitment to delivering the highest quality service and expertise to apartment owners, which is why we have been able to achieve 20% market share of sold properties in Sydney City 2000 for the last quarter despite the pandemic,” said Adrian. The past 12 months have certainly been eventful. Starting from a zero base, the agency has exchanged 24 sales at a total value of over $50 million with an average sale price of $2,123,878, their highest sale being $6.4 million, with 13 record prices achieved while increasing their properties managed by 40%. Adrian’s top 10 tips to those launching an agency in a down market, as he did back in 2008, or to get through a global pandemic as they have done in 2020, include: Hiring the right people. Ensure they share the same vision, goals and dedication to provide premium service. Strong focus on lead generation with strategic email communication program and make sure you have a functional CRM that sorts and finds data in the way you want it to. Utilise the expertise of a professional Social Media Agency, providing quality content and market awareness. Have a dedicated external Public Relations Agency, promoting our client’s properties and brand. Marketing tools with unique approaches that reflect your location and demographic property marketing. Quality listing appraisal, agency promotional material and property marketing to stand out from the crowd. Location of office, including design, fit-out, presentation and window display for brand awareness and property promotion. Strong branding. Having the vision and values for the brand mapped out from the start, as well as a commitment to outstanding videos, photography and copywriting, sets the agency up for success from day one. Utilise review platforms to collate supportive 3rd party endorsements of your business. Ongoing training, coaching and education for every person team, not just the sales agents. About Ayre Real Estate: Ayre Real Estate has been founded by multi-award-winning Real Estate Agent, Adrian Wilson, a pioneer in the Sydney City apartment market with nearly 20 years’ experience and perhaps one of the most strategic thought leaders in the industry.

These tasty blends, available in Organic Ginger and Lychee Green Tea, have a triple-action approach to aid digestion with six raw probiotic strains and no nasties. Shotz are 100% vegan, 99.5% sugar, gluten, and dairy free and made in Australia. BellyUp General Manager, Tinku Grewal says, “With increasing popularity of a plant-based diet and the move away from sugary drinks, BellyUp Shotz target consumers looking for a non-dairy multi-strain probiotic shot with added functional benefits from superfoods like ginger and lychee.” The BellyUp Shotz range includes: Organic Ginger: Zingy and ideal for an AM immune boost. With 70% of the immune system located in the digestive tract, ginger extract combined with raw probiotics is the ultimate duo. Ginger is traditionally known to support digestion and help fight off colds and flu, while billions of beneficial bacteria nourish the gut and help build gut immunity. Lychee Green Tea: Aromatic, yet energising, this shot will give a cheeky boost of antioxidants to reduce the effects of free radical damage, while supporting gut and immune health. “Unlike other probiotic shots, our unique MultiplyPlusTM guarantees six strains of probiotics including, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Bifidobacterium lactis, Saccharomyces cerevisiae (boulardii),” says Grewal. BellyUp Shotz is formulated with the six strains of raw probiotics via a unique MultiplyPlusTM 5-stage fermentation process, creating a bio-available (easily absorbed) base for greater absorption of beneficial bacteria and essential nutrients that support healthy microflora and vibrant health and well-being. In a recent paper, results found that multi-strain probiotics in 12 out of 16 studies were more effective than their single strain counterpart and beneficial for a greater variety of health-related outcomes. Specific studies for MultiplyPlus®, along with one from Southern Cross University, have shown the benefits including: • Positive immune system modulation • Stimulation of white blood cells to combat pathogens • Ability to improve digestive health • Improvement of bloating and indigestion • High antioxidant activity • Production of a nutrient-rich, easily absorbed and highly bio-active substance BellyUp Shotz are now available in Woolworths nationally at an RRP $8.50 for a 6 pack, while the RTDs can be found in over 1,500 outlets, ranging from grocery, petrol & convenience, cafes and online. About BellyUp: BellyUp is an extension of Henry Blooms, provider of Australian natural health products and probiotic experts for over 80 years. BellyUp is a healthy drink that is 99% sugar free, gluten, dairy and alcohol free and good for your gut that doesn’t compromise on taste.

Their signature and patented soilless modular installations can be seen across Australia, with locations including the award-winning Origin Energy head office in Melbourne and the famous Qantas First Class Lounge at Sydney’s International Airport. Following testing and successful installation, The Greenwall Company is releasing their new checkerboard walls, cacti/tree planters and bespoke pot-free outdoor planters. Mark Paul, Horticulturist and founder of The Greenwall Company says, “We’re excited to officially launch the new design options as I feel they will provide real solutions for those looking to green their homes or commercial space. These new designs are really for people or businesses who don’t have the standard blank concrete wall to work with, are looking for something standout or simply have an awkward space or lack of it. “All of our installations, big or small, are planted with our patented soilless media which is made from 94% recycled expanded plastics that would otherwise be destined for Australian landfill. The formulation is so much lighter than soil, even when wet, greatly reducing the structural load and need to reinforce the surface they are being applied to is removed, making life easier, cheaper and environmentally friendly for the client,” said Mark. The Greenwall Company now offer the following designs for residential or commercial installation. All designs are bespoke and created by The Greenwall Company team: Standard Greenwalls: A soil-less vertical garden grown on the surface of a built structure designed to replicate the growing conditions found in nature. Pre-planted modular panels are installed to create a living skin with unlimited design opportunities. Standard size is 2m x 1m, however they can also be custom built to any size. Pseudo Greenwalls: The pseudo greenwall system works on the basic principles of a true greenwall, but with cost advantages. Pockets of inorganic media are used to grow individual plants, as opposed to full panels that support a mass of individual plants. In time, these pockets grow to form a full canopy across the space they are on. Checkerboard Greenwalls: A pattern of greenwall panels arranged in a checkerboard layout, nominal panel size is 620mm x 600mm. This greenwall panel can halve the amount of greenwall surface area. Thus, the cost is also proportionately reduced. This style of greenwall is a creative/colourful adaption of a greenwall. Blade Greenwalls: This is a small slice of greenwall nominally, 200mm x 200mm x 2000mm. This size of greenwall is malleable enough to incorporate green strips within the facade of an existing building. A blade instantly greens a small area adding colour and life to the smallest of spaces EcoPillow Planters: Pre-planted lightweight gabions in bespoke sizes and shapes depending on the area available. Sizes range from the “Coffin” which is 2m x 0.5m x 0.5m, or a cube which is 1m x 0.5m x 0.5m or 1m x 1m x 1m. Perfect for use on balconies, outdoor entertaining spaces and can be easily moved if needed, as they are significantly lighter than a pot full of soil. Greenroofs: Modular in design, the EcoPillow is a pre-grown living roof that offers all the proven benefits of a greenroof while radically reducing risk and cost of the roofing structure. As a pre-grown and fully encased product, the EcoPillow is lightweight, has built-in irritation which reduces the risks from extreme weather conditions, wind scour or rain erosion. These can be planted across the full area, or only planted initially with 50% coverage, again reducing costs but allowing growth to cover the entire space. All of The Greenwall Company’s greening options provide benefits beyond their aesthetic appeal, including reducing the urban heat island effect, improving air quality and general wellbeing of those around them. In Australia, there are over 6,000 species that can be colonised on both rocks (lithophytes) and on trees (epiphytes). Winter Warmer Styling Trends to create the ultimate cocoon at home 2020-05-04T23:26:26Z winter-warmer-styling-trends-to-create-the-ultimate-cocoon-at-home With many of us cocooning at home and the cooler weather swiftly arriving, leading property stylist and interior designer, Justine Wilson from Vault Interiors, shares her insider tips to create a cosy and comfortable space to see out the winter and iso blues. “It’s been a very different lead up to winter this year, with Australians in insolation over the past month or even two. Many are looking to take advantage of the down time and tidy, clear out and spruce up their homes. I have five simple tricks that can be ordered online, delivered to your do, and set up (hopefully) without the risk of a hospital visit from falling of the roof!” said Justine. Justine’s top five winter warmer styling tips include: 1. Rich colour tones in lush fabrics: Think textural fabrics like wool, velvet and faux fur. Hot colours this winter are olive, emerald, plum, mustard, burnt orange and deep magenta. To update your home think about investing in new scatter cushions, thick bed or sofa throws or even a colourful plush rug underfoot. You can also just use decorative vases or flowers in these tones to bring a cherry pop of colour. 2. Change your bedding: Winter is a good time to change out your bedding to thicker weight duvets and new linen. The summer trend was lots of simple white or cream light weight linen, but in winter try a textured spread like a waffle or tufted linen design. Opt for deeper colour tones for the ultimate cosy feel and really layer your bedding with a coverlet and a throw for maximum impact. 3. Candles are my winter go to: It’s easy for a home to feel musty and dark with windows and doors often shut to keep in the warmth, so use pretty scented candles will help lift your mood. This year candles on mass will be a big trend. All you need is a round platter, or tray and 5-8 candles, light them all and you have a beautiful centrepiece for your dining or coffee table that will smell great and provide an ambient glow. 4. Mirrors are a great tool: Use them in winter, as they will reflect any available light and make your interior less gloomy, it can also bring the outdoors in. Hang them in hallways, dark rooms and anywhere you can reflect a nice outlook. The more the merrier in winter, and if you can reflect a nice lamp or floor lamp - even better. 5. Create an outdoor room: This would be my top tip this winter, especially with mandatory isolation. We may not be able to travel or go camping, so why not bring the experience into your backyard! Invest in an outdoor fire pit, most councils allow them if you burn only dry wood, get some nice outdoor comfy chairs and string some outdoor solar fairy lights for the full affect! “There is nothing like toasting a marshmallow or playing some tunes under a starry sky - I think more than ever we need to create experience at home,” says Justine.

George Liakatos, JURA Australia’s Managing Director says, “I think we’re all consuming our fair share of coffee at home at the moment! Now that many of us have more time on our hands, it’s not just about getting a quick caffeine hit, but finding ways to reuse our coffee grounds and get creative with coffee recipes.” JURA Australia have compiled their top five ways to get the most out of your at-home coffee machine: 1. Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie: Simply place 3 frozen bananas, 4 tbsp peanut butter, 1 to ½ cup of oat milk (depending on thickness desired), 80ml cooled espresso , 1 tbsp maple syrup and 1 tsp chia seeds in a blender and start the day with a coffee breakfast on the go!. 2. Espresso Porridge: Combine 1 ½ cups of rolled oats, 3 cups of milk of your choice, 1/3 cup espresso, 1 tbsp chia seeds and 1 pinch of salt in a large saucepan and stir well. Bring to the boil, then reduce to simmer and cook for 5 minutes until oats are thick and creamy. Stir in vanilla essence and remove from heat and serve with your favourite toppings such as banana, blueberries, coconut flakes, peanut butter and extra chia seeds. 3. DIY Coffee Body Scrub: Mix ½ cup of freshly ground coffee beans with ½ cup of brown sugar, add ½ cup of organic coconut oil and mix until well combined. Use immediately all over the body and rinse off thoroughly before moisturising. 4. Coffee infused compost: coffee grounds are known to be high in potassium and nitrogen and their high carbon content helps to feed the soil, it can also be used as a natural fertilizer. They have also been reported to help ward off nasty bugs, however they are too acidic to be used on their own so always mix them with other organic matter like manure, garden waste and kitchen scraps before adding to your garden. 5. Odour neutraliser: Just like coffee beans are readily available at the fragrance counters of most department stores, coffee beans can also neutralise scents in the home. Simply place a cup of unused coffee grounds in the fridge and then wait for them to absorb the odour!

While no one can avoid ageing altogether, we can all prevent the signs of premature ageing by using proven skin treatments such as Anthogenol®.” Free radical damage can be caused by stress, both emotional and physical, lifestyle factors such as smoking or excess alcohol intake and environmental factors such as pollution, chemical and sun exposure. “There have been multiple clinical trials investigating and proving the benefits of the patented Grape Seed extract in Anthogenol® Facial Serum. We are proud to present an anti-ageing skin solution that is not only proven to reduce the visible signs of ageing but is also Australian made,” adds Emily. Formulated for both day and night use, the lightweight, bioactive formula absorbs quickly to leave skin feeling plumper, with improved texture and appearance for a revitalised complexion.

About Anthogenol: Anthogenol is a proud tribute to the remarkable legacy of Professor Jack Masquelier, who helmed a scientific breakthrough in 1948 when he successfully isolated the powerful antioxidants Oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). OPCs are not able to be made by the human body, nor can they be synthetically produced. Professor Masquelier developed an exacting, patented method to extract this powerful antioxidant, which lead to the development of Anthogenol® – a highly refined form of Grape Seed extract that cannot be compared to any other on the market.
