Director / Sales
I love my life. My Family. My Work. Easy to say, much harder to do.
I make sure I bring unparalleled enthusiasm and energy to the table combined with over 15 years of gut wrenching , knuckle clenching negotiation experience every time I represent someone's real estate interests. I understand that selling a home is about the dollars, but so much more for the average home seller. They have so much vested, so much at stake. The empathy for my clients position is important, whilst still guiding them to the best of possible outcomes.
My business energy would be wasted if I didn't have the same enthusiasm to invest in my family - Lee, Oscar and Anais. Kids sport, camping holidays, walking the dogs and a spot of lawn mowing fill my life outside of work. Of course there is also a selfish pursuit squeezed in between 5am and 7am most days. Riding my bike. That lycra-clad addiction.
All of this measured madness makes for a full and complete Derek.
Director / Licensee
Runner. Mum. Wife. Vic Park Lifer.
When not pounding a well trod path around the Swan River or signing up for the next crazy event involving any combination of running shoes, bike and bathers, you'll find me on the sidelines of a football oval, at a netball or basketball game, cheering on two extremely active children.
A large part of my role at Baston & Co. Property revolves around the Community. When not supporting local businesses and keeping the community informed via our blog and social media channels, we support kids in sport through local schools and sporting clubs - a hangover from a Human Movement and Teaching Degree.
Initiatives like this were not always possible within the large franchise model of real estate locally so, after 10 years of being a part of such a model, we took the plunge to do things differently and Baston & Co. Property was born.
With a growing team of like-minded individuals, I look forward to a fabulous 'Vic Park Life' for the foreseeable future.

Sales / Office Administration
Having worked in the Real Estate Industry for close to 8 years, Rickie has been lucky to have worked across the highs and lows of the market, in a variety of different roles.
With an inquiring mind Rickie is always willing to learn and go that extra step to make sure everything is ‘just right’. She thrives on being the "engine", the person in the background making sure the wheels are turning and everything is running smoothly.
Having grown up in the country, the country attitude and mentality is well embedded in Rickie – she understands the importance of treating people right, building relationships and working hard, bringing this attitude with her into the workplace.
Outside of office life, you’ll find Rickie at one of four places. At home in her kitchen baking amazing creations, with family enjoying life, at a local park with her beloved dog – Rupert the Groodle, or with a yoga mat tucked under her arm racing off to another Pilates class – recharging to hit the ground running again the next day!
