Hart twins turn one and celebrate with 197 acres to call their own

Alexander and Olivia Hart just celebrated their first birthday and received a gift from Mum and Dad that will shape the future for their whole family.  Andrew and Danielle Hart and their twins are now the proud owners of a 197 acre block of land, funded by The Capricornian, located in the foothills of Norman Gardens in Rockhampton.

Andrew and Danielle have owned other houses before but were in search of a large property with beautiful countryside to suit the lifestyle they were wanting, whilst also being close to town. “When the land became available it ticked all the boxes for us,” said Danielle.

The couple will eventually build their dream home on their land however, buying 197 acres is not as simple as a standard block of land and it has come with some hurdles along the way. Funding of their loan was one of those hurdles, with the big banks hesitant to help them out due to the size of the block. 

What happened next is proof of what can be achieved when likeminded businesses work in collaboration to help fellow Central Queensland locals realise their dreams of home ownership.

Danielle explained that “our Mortgage Broker Terri Johnson contacted the Capricornian to discuss what we were wanting to do with the land, and being local they understood our dream for a country lifestyle and were willing to help us. “Lauren from The Capricornian, our Real Estate, our Mortgage Broker and Solicitor all worked together well as a team to make it happen in the short timeframes required. It was a very positive and relatively stress free experience for us and was a much more personalised approach than dealing with a big bank” she said.

The Capricornian’s Stockland Branch Manager Lauren Robinson has a young family too, so understands how important it is to have a place to call your own. Helping members into their homes happens to be her day job, and one that gives her great satisfaction. “I’m so happy for the Hart family and looking forward to the finished product when they build their home,” said Lauren.

“I truly believe in The Capricornian point of difference, where no two members are treated the same. We assess each loan accordingly and have that personal approach,” she said.
