LLOYD PAYNE – General Manager Fresh Homes

Lloyd loves rugby, barbeques and spending time with his beautiful wife Kim and their gorgeous children at their Gold Coast property. What you didn’t know about Lloyd is that he has a keen mechanical mind and started his working career with the Queensland Railways in Townsville as an apprentice Fitter Mechanic. He later moved into property, first in sales and eventually managing a number of regional sales offices and building teams in Queensland. Lloyd completed a Building and Construction Certificate followed by a MBA with James Cook University.

He began Fresh Homes in 2006 in Loganholme, Brisbane and later opened up another office in North Queensland. Lloyd is very proud of his team of people, whom he has known personally as well as professionally for many years.

TANIA BOOKER – North QLD Design & Sales Consultant | TOWNSVILLE

Tania Booker is a true people person and loves designing but more importantly helping her clients realise their dreams of owning their own home.  She started her property journey 15 years ago building her first house in her hometown of Townsville with the help of Lloyd and Kim Payne.  Since then, Tania has travelled, living in Tasmania for several years before returning to her home in Townsville.  She began her working career as a hairdresser and learnt very quickly the importance of listening to people.  Later Tania moved into retail fashion; and proving that she can help anyone regardless of the industry, she changed course and worked in the mechanical and auto industry.

Tania has been part of our award-winning Townsville team for 10 years and is now one of our leading Design Consultants.  As a busy mum, Tania understands the importance of designing functional homes to suit people’s lifestyle and the value of quiet and private zones within the family home.
