MEET THE DUTTONS!

CAROLYN DUTTON - Principal/Property Consultant

NIGEL DUTTON - Director/Media Consultant

Carolyn Dutton was born in Tasmania and her parents had country hotels whilst she was growing up. She attended Scotch Oakburn College then moved to Queensland’s Gold Coast in the late ‘80’s and entered the hospitality industry.  She was a Conference Coordinator/Manager for many years working in International hotels – it was during this time she met her Nigel, who was working in the Audio Visual industry. 

Nigel and Carolyn were employed to open and run new 4 and 5 star holiday resort complexes, the largest having over 250 apartments.  This was an exciting and extremely busy career path and led them through the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.  After quite a few years, they decided to purchase their first home together and have a break from the 24/7 intensity of resort living and Carolyn entered the world of real estate.  Specialising as a Business Broker in Management Rights, she then started selling the type of properties that they had been running – a perfect opportunity to really know “the product” inside out.  This successful career continued as Carolyn was considered one of the best Management Rights Brokers on the Gold Coast – her highest sale in the $7m region.

The Duttons decided on the move to Tasmania – back home for Carolyn and something different for Nigel, in 2009.    They purchased a Federation home in Ulverstone, renovated and sold, then another one (a bigger renovation), then sold and then made their home in the beautiful seaside setting of Shearwater, which has now been home for over four years.  Of course another full renovation, but there’s nothing like keeping busy!    Nigel and Carolyn love living in this part of Tasmania – where else can you have a lifestyle like this, a stone’s throw to some of Tasmania’s finest beaches – with an outlook to a stunning National Park but with all services and facilities at your doorstep?  This region is one of the fastest growing in Tasmania and when you see it, you’ll know why……

Nigel and Carolyn are passionate about running their own business and about customer service.  They work well together, balancing work loads and their work/life balance – which is mainly enjoyed with their Labrador baby!
