Selling a Maher family trait

By ED SOUTHORN

WHEN three generations of the Maher family gathered to talk real estate, the subject quickly turned to the Tweed Coast property boom.

Adrian Maher, 83, was the first person in the Tweed with a tractor with headlights, before he began a real estate career. Son Tony, 47, sells for PRD Nationwide at Tweed Heads and grandson Aaron, 20, has now also joined PRD.

Tony recalls the Tweed was considered too remote from the Gold Coast to be a hot spot when he began selling real estate in 1979.

At that time, Kingscliff was a quiet retirement spot for cane and dairy farmers.

"Now it's become the Noosa of the Northern Rivers," Tony said.

Adrian believes Tweed Coast property has a big future.

"Where else is there beachfront land like this?" he said.
