Radio host Jo Lynch goes off-air to pursue a career in real estate

Jo Lynch, LJ Hooker agent, and former radio presenter.

On-air personality Jo Lynch has hung up the headphones on a 21-year career in radio to turn her hand to selling houses.
While Ms Lynch’s has worked for stations around the world, she was more recently the voice of Triple M Brisbane’s afternoon show, before making a move to the Gold Coast where she worked part time for the station at 92.5.
Recently Ms Lynch, who is a mum to two boys, joined the ranks of real estate agency LJ Hooker, in its Coolangatta-Tweed office, with the foray into a new profession marking her return to full-time work.

Ms Lynch is loving her new career in real estate.

“I’m turning 40 this year and I thought, this will be the start of the second half of my working life and I just felt it was time for a change,” Ms Lynch said.
“Radio was great for me and my social life in my younger years. I got to see a lot of bands and go to some great parties, but I couldn’t see myself being in the industry for another 20 years.”
“The decision to switch careers was purely me wanting to challenge myself and do something that I have been totally obsessed with for a long time, which was real estate,” she said.
“I have a genuine love for it and I can’t believe I didn’t embark on this years ago. I am loving the people I am meeting, the properties I am seeing, and the market we are in right now is incredible.

“And it still allows me to be creative, which is really important.”
Ms Lynch’s interest in property goes far beyond the professional – it has been of personal interest too, with the announcer and her partner Ryan Swierczewski buying, renovating and flipping several homes over the years, including an apartment in Mermaid Beach, a house in Elanora, and then Tugun.

“We’re progressive in the way that we look at our own real estate. We try not to get too attached to anything because that is the game, you have to be able to move on and up,” she said.
It was during the negotiation process for her new waterfront home in West Tweed Heads, which the couple purchased in August last year, that sparked Ms Lynch’s decision to pursue a real estate career.

So, I thought why not – let’s do it,” she said. “I decided to get my real estate licence and it’s the best thing I ever did.” Daniel Alexander, principal of the LJ Hooker Coolangatta Tweed, said he was excited to have Ms Lynch as part of the team. “We are really excited to see Jo bring her vibrant personality, extensive network and people skills to the industry,” he said. “The activity in the Tweed Heads market has never been stronger and with the support of the LJ Hooker network, Jo is sure to hit the ground running.” The post Radio host Jo Lynch goes off-air to pursue a career in real estate appeared first on
