75,000 toward her treatment. 75,000 to help pay for little Freyja Christiansen to go overseas for the specialised treatment she needs which is not available in Australia. The outgoing and big-hearted 27-year-old only received his own cancer diagnosis last December and despite "throwing everything at it" his future is still very uncertain. Rhys said that last year was a huge year for property sales and he was so busy at work that he ignored his coughing and back pain - just thinking he needed a holiday. His ‘best mate’ and also his boss, Robert Peaker, told him to see a doctor and eventually he booked in for a back scan at 3:00 pm on Monday, 18 December.
Rhys (right) with his boss and best mate Robert Peaker in happier days - just after winning a top sales team award in August last year. Rhys recalls that his GP rang him an hour after the scan to ask him to come back in. Not realising the gravity of the situation, Rhys initially tried to put the visit off but was persuaded to go in. It was then the doctor told him that he was 99 per cent sure Rhys had cancer. "I just broke down," Rhys remembers. "I cried on the phone to Rob for half an hour.
Rhys was diagnosed with a highly aggressive malignancy with metastatic non-seminomatous germ cell cancer. He has been having chemotherapy "one week on, one week off" since Christmas and said that without it he probably would have died in January. The chemotherapy has now finished but Rhys will be having a stem-cell transplant in mid-August. Rhys in hospital after starting chemotherapy. Throughout his ordeal, Rhys has received strong support from his "awesome" parents, family and friends - particularly Robert, who "rings me literally every single day to make sure I’m okay". He said that he and Robert had run some fundraisers to assist Freyja last year and he knows Freyja’s mum, Lizzie, quite well.
She is a single mother who is fighting to ensure her daughter receives the treatment she needs while also caring for two other daughters. "It was actually seeing Mum in hospital with me and how upset she was that made me think of Freyja and her mum," Rhys said. Rhys and Robert decided to hold a ‘Resplendent Ball’ to raise funds for Freyja but to fund the whole event themselves rather than charging for tickets. "I had the money, what’s money really worth," Rhys said. The ball was held on May 5 for 350 guests with huge support from Canberra’s real estate industry and the general community.
75,000 raised for ‘A Future for Freyja’ and the little girl herself enjoying a fun night. Guests at the Resplendent Ball. 500,000, Rhys has no intention of letting things stop there. "Once I get slightly better we’re going to do another fundraiser for her," he said, adding that they were also planning to hold the Resplendent Ball again next year. Freyja’s mother, Lizzie Christiansen, wrote on the ‘Cure for Freyja’ website about her gratitude for Rhys’ support, as well as for that provided by Peter Blackshaw Real Estate and all those who sponsored or donated to the ball. "We are forever grateful," said Lizzie. Rhys Summergreene with his sister Tara at the Resplendent Ball. Meanwhile, Rhys is getting on with life and with doing the job he loves. "There’s some bad days but that’s only usually from the side effects," he said. Rhys has been working in the real estate industry since he left school and said he "absolutely loves the job". That could be just as well given he has 10 open houses scheduled this weekend!
According to Swinwood, who is representing the dissidents, the agreement is for a little bit of money and a little bit of land.

With the Bellavera Green condominium complex in Leduc ordered to be evacuated by the end of March due to a long and serious list of code violations in the building, the Condominium Property Act has come under review. Instances of evacuations such as this one and that of Fort McMurray's Penhorwood condominiums have been leaving condo owners feeling the heat. Edmonton lawyer Robert Noce says the provincial legislation doesn't provide enough protection for owners in these types of situations, making more serious legislation necessary. The review of the Act is expected to include public consultations, a spokesperson from Service Alberta says, adding that one of the amendments being considered deals with condo developers’ responsibilities. Halifax Regional Municipality can expect to get sued by Jono Developments Ltd. St. Patrick’s-Alexandra School does not go ahead as promised, said William Ryan, a lawyer in Halifax, representing the firm.
If you're not careful, you can easily lose a lot of money in the real estate market. Property investing is a great way to make money, but you need to have a firm grasp on the basic concepts behind it. The easiest way to get there is by bringing a professional property management firm on board. One of the most important aspects of property investing is rental growth. The concept of rental growth refers to the amount of money that an investor is making off of rent, after the usual loan payments that he is or has been making. In other words, the amount that is being collected in rent should ideally exceed the amount of paying for the property. The difference is profit, and those should increase from year to year.
While collecting rent on a rental property is well and good, savvy property investors know that capital growth is where the real profits come in. Brisbane real estate generally moves in a positive direction, meaning that the property you invest in now should be worth more in a few years. As you collect your rents to pay off your investment, you'll reach your goal more quickly. Property investors do very well when capital growth is healthy. Most property investors don't have the time or the desire to delve too deeply into the mechanics of how to make great money. For one thing, property investment is not a get rich quick deal; it is a gradual process that does pay off handsomely over a long period of time.
In the meantime, managing your investments and your properties efficiently is critical. One of the simplest way to ensure that you are achieving the best possible capital growth is to engage an professional property management Brisbane firm to give you a hand. Within a reasonable time frame and with the help of experienced professionals, your investment property should start to provide you with positive returns. Maximising your property's capital growth potential is important; a talent property management company can do that, and can ensure that your rental growth is healthy as well. When both of these factors are working hand in hand, your investment property should be a winning proposition. Why risk the hit or miss nature of property investing, when you can have experienced professionals on your side? Hiring a property management firm is one of the best moves you can make when investing in property.

Whereas the bureau thinks a girl born today can expect to live to 84, the commission thinks she will live to 94 years.
