Colomba Property is the creation of Jeanne Motteram after many years of working in the residential building industry plus renovating and buying and selling houses.  She knows all too well that packing up and moving home is both physically and emotionally taxing.  Jeanne utilises her problem solving, organisational and time management skills to assist clients in relocating to their new home.

Jeanne realised that she was also willing and able to help others in a way many won’t.  She enjoys working through the mammoth task of sorting through and moving items. The reward she receives is of seeing a once full home being turned in to an empty space ready for the next family to make it their home.

If you are concerned about the state of your home, please be reassured she is highly likely to have seen worse, having been a Police Officer for 11 years, entering and searching many homes.

Jeanne has also driven much of the coastline and lived in various parts of Australia.  She has moved her personal belongings east to west and north to south across the country.

Volunteering has provided Jeanne with additional experience, having helped in an Aged Care facility, for Cancer Council Queensland, Bloomhill Cancer Care and Salvation Army. Her various roles have included serving food, driving clients to appointments, running exercise classes and sorting items at the Op Shops or Charity distribution centres.

Jeanne Motteram will provide you with the best professional service based on her qualifications, years of experience and her willingness to meet your needs.

Behind the name – ‘Colomba’

Jeanne named her business after her grand-mother, Ruve, as she has owned, designed and managed her own properties since the 1950’s.  Ruve is considered a wonderful person, mother, grand and great grand-mother by all in her life and she is still going strong at aged 96.

The name Ruve means Dove in Fijian, whilst Colomba means Dove in Italian.

To Jeanne, Dove means peace and being able to fly provides freedom, all which Jeanne wants to give to others by providing services that give time and financial benefits to others.
