Angie Ritchie

Angie Ritchie

Director & Licensee in Charge

My career in real estate combines my loves for property, houses and people.

Through my 20+ years in the industry, my honesty, transparency and strong listening skills have enabled me to build solid and trusting relationships with my clients. Working in real estate, we meet a diverse range of people, in all stages of life and hearing their stories and finding a way to meet their needs is something I relish.

I live in the beautiful coastal community of Gerringong, where I am firmly en­trenched as a soccer Mum, school volunteer and proud founder of the Kiama and Gerringong Crop and Swap – groups for swapping surplus produce from our home gardens. This sense of community, along with the beautiful land­scapes and family-friendly lifestyle make it a joy to live and work in this area.

The creation of Zest and its transformation into the thriving business we see today along with achieving the second highest sale price in Kiama are my greatest career achievements.

Let me guide you through the sale of your home with honesty, communica­tion and experience.


Sonia De Jesus

Sonia De Jesus

Director & Senior Property Manager

I am driven by my passion for property and a love of helping others.

I’ve spent over 10 years in the real estate industry and take pride in the client relationships I have made, and continue to maintain throughout this time. The strength of these relationships lies in my desire to provide superior ser­vice, always.

During my time in the industry I have developed an extensive knowledge of residential and commercial leasing as well as trust accounting and funds management, ensuring the value and significance of your investment is clearly understood.

I am a mother of four, so I love the way the laid back, family friendly lifestyle that comes with being part of the lllawarra and Shoalhaven.

My proudest career achievement is the successful business we have built in Zest Real Estate and the continual growth of our rental portfolio across the lllawarra and Shoalhaven.

Let me take care of your investment and allow you to experience the Zest difference.

Sales Consultant

I find the combination of customer satisfaction and achieving great results very rewarding.

I understand that buying and selling is an emotional time and I appreciate the trust placed in me by my clients. By building a strong relationship, I’m able to gain insight into their needs and I take pride in my ability to listen to, and meet them. I believe that my success lies on my honesty and integrity, and my passion for what I do.

My 23 years in the industry have helped me refine and strengthen my negotiation skills in order to achieve exceptional results for my clients as a Rural and Business Real Estate Specialist.

Together with my wife, I enjoy travelling, fine wine a good design and I love that each of these are within reach in the beautiful Illawarra.

My two greatest career achievements come from my time working in the Riverina where I sold one of the largest rural properties, with extensive irrigation infrastructure to an overseas buyer for $13m and also, my sale of 80 lots of a large residential subdivision in just one day.
