Valerie Jones

Valerie Jones

Millicent is the perfect base to establish roots. Only a thirty minute drive to Mt Gambier, the Coonawarra wine region and the popular seaside town of Beachport with close access to the magnificent Canunda National Park. These are some of the reasons Valerie Jones established her business, Millicent Real Estate years ago. Valerie , along with her husband Bruce, also a proprietor and previous sales person before truck driving became his chosen path, lives and breathes real estate with a wealth of knowledge accumulated over a 30 year career span in the industry. Valerie has lived in Millicent for most of her life and has three grown daughters who all have families of their own now, one in Cairns and two living in Adelaide but school holidays are always a busy time with visiting grandchildren! Valerie’s other passions are her shop, Mahogany House, based in Millicent, her garden and entertaining friends and family in her newly renovated kitchen and sharing fine quality local wine!

Angela Wallis

Angela Wallis

Assisting in Sales with Valerie, is Angela Wallis who is based in Millicent and appreciates the benefits of country life immensely. Making the most of Millicent’s close proximity to one of the most spectacular coastal destinations in the country, Southend, Angela likes to kayak in the warmer months of the year and keep fit by walking the Cape Buffon track on most mornings. Now a qualified horticulturist, she hopes that she may be able to combine her sales role with offering clients garden designs or garden renovation advice. Angela possesses the rare ability to strike the perfect balance between honesty and sensitivity in her quest to keep every client and their best interests at the top of the agenda – her straight shooting will always come packaged with her down-to-earth, warming manner.

Melissa Patzel

Melissa Patzel

The striking face that greets all who walk through the office door, the engine room of the business, as we call her, is Melissa Patzel. Melissa has worked alongside Valerie from the beginning of Valerie’s journey into the real estate field and is a valuable asset to the company. She and her partner, Ric who originates from one of the most scenic destinations in the world, New Zealand, live in Millicent and enjoy much of the freedom of country life, particularly the fun of motor bike riding! Another passion of Ric’s is fishing which Mel (who has recently decided to accompany him) is now discovering is a relaxing break away from the heavy demands of her role in the office. Always returning to work refreshed and relaxed, our clients regularly comment on how enjoyable it is to step into our office! Mel is the Office Manager, Sales Consultant back-up and also oversees the Rental Department.
