Live Love Mount Eliza is just for you from me, Vicki Sayers.
Whether you already live in or around Mount Eliza, or you aspire to make the village your home, I want to share local stories and information about this incredible suburb and its people and lifestyles with you.
I want to show you through other residents eyes, not just my own.
I'll also be profiling some local businesses, organisations, events and people, and showcasing new products and services as well as sharing special offers from time to time.
Why Live Love Mount Eliza?
Here it is. I am besotted with Mount Eliza.
I intimately understand the rewarding lifestyle the village can offer people, from singles to young couples to growing families through to retirees. It is an embracing, vibrant and supportive community.
I know because I have been a part of this community for many years, as have my family.
My connections with Mount Eliza and the Mornington Peninsula run deep. From my father's ancestors; to my mother's; to my husband's ancestors through to raising my own family, I have lived and loved Mount Eliza well beyond my childhood years.
Like many of my Mount Eliza North Primary and Toorak College school friends, I did move away for a while. I loved living here so much, I felt I had to explore beyond just in case I was missing out something better, or something different.
The truth is, once I moved away all I wanted to do was keep coming back.
The city for me was somewhere I stayed. I came home to Mount Eliza almost every weekend. And, like many of my school friends, I moved back to the Mornington Peninsula.
This special part of Victoria is embedded in our hearts. We've chosen to raise families here because of all the area has to offer. It's easy living. It's vibrant living. And an urban Melbourne fix is an easy one hour commute away - less if you choose your travel time well.
My beautiful 94 year old grandmother still lives here. My Mum is still living locally. I have cousins that have chosen to raise their children around the area too. And over the years I've built new relationships with locals that didn't grow up here, but love it as much as I do.
Yes, I sell real estate in and around Mount Eliza. For me, real estate is about people and relationships. It's why I love what I do, in a locality that has my heart.
