REIWA Agent spotlight: Liz Sterzel, Property Wizards

“I enjoy finding someone a home they thought they could never get. Representing buyers, looking after them behind the scenes in ways they will never know and knowing it has made a difference in their lives. “  Liz Sterzel, Property Wizards.

 

Liz Sterzel has always had a good eye for property. When she was in her 20s, she had a gut-instinct to purchase an investment property in an oceanside suburb close to an expensive area. At the time, she didn’t have much of an understanding of property, but her instinct was right and the decision to buy that property turned out to be a very good investment.

Years later and Liz is now a successful real estate professional who has a passion for helping buyers and investors find their perfect property. She is Director at Property Wizards, an agency designed to assist buyers and investors with their property purchases. 

She is REIWA Accredited in two specialty fields, Buyer’s Agent and Sales Representative, and was the winner of REIWA’s Buyer’s Agent of the Year at the 2021 Awards for Excellence. Liz and Property Wizards are also generous sponsors of REIWA’s Community REInvest program.
