At we believe property seeking and selling is an exciting time which is why we do things differently to make things easier during your property journey. So today, we are excited to launch our ‘We’re Just Like You’ campaign where we’ll share the trials and tribulations of searching, renovating or selling a house.

In support of this campaign, are extremely proud to announce an exciting new partnership with The AFL Players’ Association. Together, we will showcase a short behind-the-scenes look into some of the AFL’s best and their property stories, starting with Jack Riewoldt’s family home in Bellerive, Tasmania.

The Players’ VIEW series and AFL Players’ partnership
Riewoldt is the first of five AFL stars to begin sharing their real estate story in ‘The Players’ VIEW’ series which provides a glimpse into his childhood home in the upcoming series, which will launch on and on Monday 11th July. knows exactly what it’s like creating your housing moments and so do AFL players. The series provides insight into each players’ real estate journey, from renting with a mate and buying a first home, to upsizing for a bigger family and purchasing an investment property. The players in the videos discuss their successes, mistakes and learnings during the different stages of their property journey. General Manager, Barry Pope, said saw the partnership as a great opportunity to combine two of Australia’s greatest passions, footy and property. “We carefully selected the AFL players involved in the campaign to represent the various stages of property investment life, from first home buyers all the way through to investors,” he said.

“While many people grow up admiring AFL players’ ability on the field each week, this four-part series demonstrates that they all still ask the same questions, make similar mistakes and are excited by the property search and purchase process, as anyone else in the property market.”

“Property decisions are the biggest and most important a person can make, but we don’t believe that it should be dull. This campaign and partnership with AFL Players’ reflects that we don’t take ourselves too seriously and like to have a bit of fun along the way, something our competitions have strayed away from” stated Pope.
