About Us

Get to know us a little more

Hello. We’re Nic and Arna.
After eight years in the real estate industry,
we walked away from the corporate world in pursuit of happiness.
We gave up everything to build a career doing
what we love - preparing and selling houses together.

Ernest Living challenges us, delights us and allows us to balance hard work with some seriously great family time. Like any good partnership, we each bring something unique to the table. Nic’s talent for selling houses and instinctual understanding of a buyer’s needs, perfectly balances Arna’s natural flair for interior design, marketing and photography. Together, we’re always pushing the boundaries on what we can achieve for ourselves and our clients.

At Ernest Living, we do more than just sell your home.
Here’s how it works.

A thorough appraisal.

We’ll start out by assessing your home. Our goal is to maximise your profit potential through cleverly executed cosmetic improvements, specifically tailored to your property. We’ll consider location and the needs of your target market, before coming up with a list of recommended updates to suit your budget.

We know that modernising your home can be daunting, no matter how big or small the project. With years of experience in Gold Coast real estate and many renovations under our belt, you can rest easy knowing you’re in good hands.

Need to make a few changes?
We’ve got you covered.

Our reliable network of affordable tradesmen and contractors can make any minor upgrades to the interior or exterior of your home. We’ll work with our contacts on your behalf to manage any pre-sale updates to your home.

No stress, no fuss. And the best part? We do all of this at no extra cost.

The end result is a sale-ready home worth so much more than when we started.

Any real estate agent
can sell your home.
We think differently.

We understand our role goes beyond selling. It’s about unlocking that hidden 10% premium in the final sale price.

Through expert sales strategies and high-impact marketing solutions, we’ll put your home in front of the right buyers. We’ll take care of negotiations, the sale, the settlement and everything in between.

A customised service.

If your home is ready for sale and you want it listed now, we can do that too.

At Ernest Living, we create real estate solutions tailored just for you. From full-scale home improvement to a straight-forward listing, we’ll secure the best possible price for your most valuable asset.
