Helen Arthurson

Helen Arthurson comes from a strong real estate background spanning 30 years.

Starting as a Trust Account Bookkeeper in 1984 with A L Barton & Co Pty Ltd (Mount Waverley), Helen progressed to Office Manager for some renowned, quality endorsed, Estate Agencies, in the districts of Brighton and Glen Iris.

Helen’s strategy in real estate is good communication and attention to detail. “I was taught old school; you cross your ‘t’s’ and dot your ‘i’s’.

In 2006 Helen and her husband Graeme decided it was time for a change and moved to the Gippsland district of Mountain View. Helen took a couple of years off work to try her hand at writing. In May 2012 she published her first children’s novel “Nuts in Shining Armour”. The focus of the story is based on endangered species and our neglected environment. Helen has been successfully promoting the book through Gippsland’s Local Primary Schools. Several books have been donated to the local school libraries.

At home, in Mountain View, Helen loves sketching, quilting, gardening, cooking and reading. She is currently working on a book sequel.

In April 2012 Helen and her husband Graeme decided to open a boutique real estate office in Drouin. It was the logical thing to do, and combine decades of real estate knowledge and skills.
