Perrie started her career as a journalist on the Financial Times in London, then as editor of the Money section of the Sydney Morning Herald. A sea-change in 1993 brought her to Berry where she ran an award winning Bed and Breakfast on 40 acres. In 2000 Perrie moved to Gerroa and started South Coast Holidays, the south coast’s largest holiday property rental and management agency, and sales agency, South Coast Lifestyle Property. She sold these businesses in 2017.
Perrie has served on various regional and state boards to promote tourism and economic development on the south coast of NSW.
“One of my best life choices was to move back to Australia, straight to the South Coast of NSW. Kiama, Gerringong, Gerroa, Berry, Shoalhaven Heads – these are all world-class destinations with world-class homes either in town, on the beach or on acreage. “Working in real estate sales in this region is a constant joy.”
