Solicitor Bruce Simpson is a mate of mine. His little one-man legal office is in Cooroy, just inland from Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. He does a fair bit of conveyancing and, as a result, does a fair bit of whinging at home to his wife Kathryn. Like the ever-supportive spouses of so many Queensland conveyancing solicitors, Kathryn has to hear over and over again Bruce’s constant complaints about deceptive agents, flawed contracts, unsatisfactory building inspections and outstanding council approvals and inspections.
Finally school-teacher Kathryn had had a gutful. She sat down at the Simpson PC one night and proceeded to knock out a five-page letter to Queensland’s Sunday Mail. She set out all of Bruce’s complaints and concerns. Then got Bruce to sign it before she posted it next morning. The letter soon landed on the desk of the Sunday Mail’s property writer, Ronnie Girdham. She was stoked and started working on a story.
I came into the picture when Ronnie wanted to interview and photograph of couple Bruce’s conveyancing clients.
Bruce quickly gave Ronnie my name and number with the assurance that I had heaps of willing clients with real estate horror stories.
