Firstly, let’s begin with an introduction…


Sarah is university qualified, a Class 1 Licensed Real Estate Agent, and has been in property management and the hospitality space for most of her working life.

Initially managing a large letting agency with more than 70 listings, Sarah set new industry benchmarks by offering a level of service that was unprecedented for the size of the business. Sarah’s 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.

In 2017, Sarah co-founded East Coast Escapes with Deb Summons. Sarah was working in the industry and Deb was managing her own holiday lets and they decided to join forces to bring their passion and love for holiday letting to the region and beyond.

Sarah currently resides in Byron Bay with her husband and two children, has called Byron Bay home for over 20 years.


After living in many locations around Australia and Asia, Deb and her family relocated to Byron Bay nearly 10 years ago.

Deb has an extensive background in customer service and management in multinational businesses, plus a University Degree in business. This allows her to bring sound commercial experience to property owners who partner with ECE.

Over the past few years, Deb has honed her skillset by working fulltime on a diverse portfolio of short-term rental properties. This unique combination of customer service, business and holiday letting experience has been instrumental in the management and development of ECE.
