MEDIA RELEASE – 30 January 2012
Moving to Tasmania and FINDING YOUR NEW HOME IN TASMANIA now MADE EASY
Moving to Tasmania and moving within Tasmania has now become much easier with
the launch of Tasmania’s first relocation services company, Settled In Home Search
and Relocation Services.
When leaving Tasmania for Melbourne after graduating from University Jo Reardon didn’t really think about if or when she might live here again, but fast forward twenty years and the idea of returning started to make sense. It also helped that she had met and married a fellow Tasmanian – Dale Reardon – a couple of years before. So with the decision made the planning commenced and their house in the Macedon Ranges outside Melbourne was on the market and a new house bought in Hobart soon after. Throughout this process Jo started to think about what was next in her work life and the result was a new business that would help others achieve the same thing – a new life in Tasmania.
“I have long had an interest in property and have moved many times around Melbourne, interstate to Perth and back and overseas to New Zealand. So that interest coupled with my broad business experience and enjoyment of managing projects resulted in the idea to create Settled In,” explains Jo.
“We tailor our services to exactly what our clients need. There are no set packages that include services that may not suit you. We also pass on a wealth of practical information about living in Tasmania to help with the settling process,” says Jo.
In addition to those new to Tasmania, the Home Search services offered by Settled In can be utilised by anyone wanting to find a new home, even if you only want to move within the same suburb.
“Anyone who has bought property knows that it starts out as exciting and can often quickly become frustrating as more and more time is spent trying to find the property that best suits you. If you want your weekends back, then we can help you,” says Jo.
Settled In will do the searching for you and narrow down the options based on your needs and then show you the properties which best suit. You will soon find your new home, investment property or holiday house.
Settled In is based in Hobart and provide services to most parts of Tasmania.
Settled In Pty Ltd is the family company of Dale and Jo Reardon. Dale and Jo were both born and raised in Tasmania. They have each lived outside Tasmania in recent years and have now relocated back to Tasmania and have settled in Hobart.
Jo Reardon (nee Dillon) grew up in Hobart and studied Commerce at the University of Tasmania while also working in her first job at AMP in the late 1980s. Upon graduation she ventured to Melbourne which was her main base for twenty years. Over this time Jo has worked in operational and management roles at BP Australia, BP New Zealand, Museum Victoria, the University of Melbourne as well as two years as a management consultant undertaking planning, analysis and process improvement projects across a broad range of industries. Jo is now settled back in
Tasmania and is enjoying the wonderful lifestyle, great weather and a lot less traffic.
Dale Reardon grew up in Launceston and studied Law at the University of Tasmania. He was the first blind lawyer in Tasmania (he got his first guide dog, Robb, in 1989 and his current seeing eye companion is called Charlie) and practised in both Launceston and Kingston, being in partnership with his own firm in Kingston. Dale was also heavily involved in the Tourism industry for seven years owning and operating several bed and breakfast properties in Battery Point. He left Tasmania in 2004 and has now returned to make Hobart home once again.
