Who is behind East Coast Escapes?

Sarah Grant
Sarah and her family have called Byron Bay home since 2001. Sarah has a Bachelor of Arts in Leisure Studies, is a licensed real estate agent and very experienced in the holiday letting business. Prior to founding East Coast Escapes, she was working with a large letting agent and managing more than 70 listings. Sarah managed to offer a level of service that was unprecedented for the size of the business.

Her attention to detail, service level and commercial acumen saw the business grow dramatically for the benefit of the agency and all the owners involved. Sarah has an impeccable reputation with local service providers and property owners alike.

Deb Summons

Having lived in many locations around Australia and Asia, Deb and her family now happily call the Northern Rivers region home. Deb has an extensive background in customer service at multinational companies, plus a university degree in business. This allows her to bring sound commercial experience to the business.

More recently Deb has been working full time with her own personal portfolio of holiday letting properties and has a keen interest in real estate. The combination of past professional experience and running her own personal holiday properties provides a great foundation for Deb to contribute to the management and development of East Coast Escapes

What’s exciting and reliable about East Coast Escapes is that we both have different skills and experiences. This provides a solid foundation to grow the business into a well-executed boutique holiday letting business. We plan to know each property and owner personally, to ensure we can execute our service promises to maximize your returns.
