Principal/Licensed Real Estate Agent
With a professional career spanning almost 30 years, Vanessa has proven that a combination of hard work and the ability to create lasting relationships is one of her greatest strengths.
Vanessa commenced her real estate sales career in 2017; She has successfully sold more than $40M in property over her initial 3 years in sales. In addition to these achievements, she has completed her Diploma in Property and purchased My Coast Realty in December 2019, becoming principal of the business.
In the 2021 Rate My Agent awards Vanessa was named the No.2 agent for Devonport City with MY Coast Realty being names the No.1 agency for Spreyton, No.2 agency for Devonport City with also being named No.7 agency for Tasmania.
Vanessa has also been recognised as a Diamond of Devonport in the 2021 awards for her business achievements in the local area.
Prior to entering the real estate industry Vanessa spent most of her working life in the hairdressing industry as a hairdresser, sales executive and as the owner of salons in both Devonport and Ulverstone. She has lived in Devonport for the past 17 years and is married with 2 beautiful children.
Over the past 10 years Vanessa along with her husband Jamie have purchased and sold multiple properties along the North/West coast and as keen renovators, they have created some stunning home transformations for others to enjoy.
Vanessa is passionate about what lies ahead on North/West Tasmania, in particular Devonport’s current and future developments. “I believe we live in one of the best locations in the world and having the opportunity to share this through real estate makes what I do even more worthwhile!”
" Online within 24 hours, Sold within 14 days! "
I would describe the My Coast Realty team as small, but perfectly formed. My property was on line within 24 hours and sold within 14 days. I met every member of the team and the entire experience was positive.
" On time and friendly "
When we decided to sell our house, we had three different real estate agents come through and tell us what they thought the house was worth. And then we had Vanessa Goodwin come through and she didn’t tell us, she asked us what we wanted for the place. We told her what we’d like to get and she got it for us. And she got it quickly. It was quite a bit more than what the other agents had quoted. When we went looking for a new house, Vanessa showed us through several. She was always on time and always friendly and helpful. If we ever leave this new house, we will not hesitate to ask Vanessa to step in and sell it for us. We cannot recommend Vanessa highly enough and we are so glad that we met her.
" Fantastic communication and support "
I have been looking to downsize for some time and I finally found a villa that I fell in love with. Vanessa was fantastic and came straight over so we could look inside. When I explained that I had to sell my house first she was happy to help. I signed the papers for the villa on Friday and went away for the long weekend. Vanessa then worked her magic all weekend and by the following Tuesday my house was sold. The communication and support by all was fantastic and I could not recommend the team enough.
" Brilliant and hard working "
Vanessa was brilliant. There were quite a few complicating factors relating to the property and contract negotiation, and Vanessa went above and beyond to help us smooth all of these out and make the purchase possible. It is highly likely without Vanessa's help we would have walked away from the purchase. If i was selling a property I would like someone who works as hard as Vanessa, and is as pleasant to sell for us . We very highly recommend her.
