Who is behind East Coast Escapes?

Sarah Grant

Sarah is university qualified, a Class 1 Real Estate Agent and has been in the property management and hospitality space for most of her working life.  Prior to founding East Coast Escapes with Deb in 2018, Sarah managed a large portfolio of 70 x short term rental accommodation listings for a local letting agency. Sarah set new industry benchmarks by offering a level of service that was unprecedented for the size of the business. Her attention to detail, impeccable reputation with local service providers, and commercial acumen saw the business grow dramatically for the benefit of the agency and all the owners involved.

Sarah resides in Suffolk Park with her husband and two children and has called Byron Bay home since 2001.

Deb Summons

Having lived in many locations around Australia and Asia, Deb and her family now happily call the Northern Rivers region home. Deb is a Class 2 Real Estate Agent, 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.
