About Jeannette Benson
Jeannette and her husband Kel have lived in Torquay since the mid-1980’s and are known in the town for their association with surf life saving and surfing. They have two teenage sons, Jordan and Matthew but her family is located in Queensland, Western Australia, Holland and London.
Jeannette was born in Geelong and grew up locally in Drysdale but her work experience has always revolved around customer service and administration where she loves to liaise with people from all walks of life.
After many years working in Drysdale and Geelong she followed her husband to work in the corporate sector in Melbourne and gained sound experience working for large companies within their sales and administration departments.
In her leisure time Jeannette loves running with her dog Tux on local beaches but loves to get away caravanning to lots of beautiful places around the country.
Jeannette joined the team in the Torquay office in August 2010 after a lengthy term at the local surf life saving club where she managed all office administration and liaised with suppliers, parents, competitors and club members. She completed her Real Estate Agents Representative Certificate last year and understands the processes and commitment required to fulfill client expectations.
She loves managing projects and is the type of person who needs to keep pushing until a matter or a project is complete.
