team

In 2011 Angelina created the Ripple brand in Southern Tasmania and could not be more delighted with the astonishing success it has become! Angelina is a qualified Real Estate Agent and Property Manager and holds her Diploma in Property Services.

Overwhelmingly, her business is generated through referrals from extremely happy clients and her personable but black and white “tell it as it is” style of communication. Angelina leads her team ensuring they mirror her tough negotiation skills and broad knowledge of the real estate market and it is very clear from her glowing testimonials that her vendors are incredibly pleased with both Angelina and the brand itself.

Angelina is passionate about building long term sustainable relationships and as such the move in 2018 to establish a property management division has echoed the success of the sales arm of Ripple. Landlords love having the Principal of the company focussed on their valuable investment portfolios. As an investor herself since the age of 19 Angelina has held a large number of investment properties personally and knows just how critical the choice you make is when it comes to recruiting somebody to manage your investment. She has built a stable team including a qualified builder so the ratio is three dedicated staff members to 100 properties managed – this is an industry exception and offers extreme comfort to landlords who don’t want to be ‘another number’

Constantly striving to exceed her own personal benchmarks and client’s expectations, you are assured of the utmost professionalism, integrity and successful results by having Angelina in your corner!

  • I would recommend Angelina for both vendors and purchasers as evidenced by her house description advertisements, which in my opinion are outstanding and follow through to her being able to provide instant and detailed information on all aspects of the houses I have enquired about and sometimes not just those in her own Agency. She takes the time to understand the purchaser’s needs and requirements and recommends only those houses that might be suitable. She knows the market.

  • Ripple Realty looked after me when I sold my home. They were very polite and professional, supportive and understanding to a widow in her late 80’s. I received good advice on presentation of my home and this led to a successful and prompt sale.

  • I have dealt with Angelina and her team at Ripple through various open homes and the eventual purchase of my dream home. Most importantly, Angelina was professional, realistic and punctual in the whole purchase transaction and kept me well informed of the sale progress. I was extremely happy with the whole process and couldn’t be more delighted with my home. Angelina also went out of her way to assist me once the house was purchase had gone through, proving that it wasn’t only about the sale. I have also dealt with Penny who is very friendly, patient and reliable. The team at Ripple are down the earth and a pleasure to deal with.

  • Angelina and her team at Ripple are amazing! I must admit I had reservations regarding real estate agents in general having had unfavourable experiences in the past. I chose Ripple initially because I didn’t want to pay out huge costs for the less than average service I had received in the past. However, from the time I met Ange I felt I had met with a down to earth, no nonsense, motivated women with many years of experience and knowledge in her field. Not only does Ange not overcharge, she offered me better service than I had received from other, more expensive agencies and agents! She knew exactly what needed to be done and the sales package and presentation was first class. The photos sold me! Between Ange and Sancia, my property was extremely well-managed and I was treated with respect as opposed to either being ignored or patronised. My property was sold within the month and the team at Ripple showed such dedication to the task that I will not hesitate in recommending them to anyone. They really went above and beyond what they needed to do.

  • I engaged Ripple to undertake the sale of my house; this decision was price motivated and not sure of the level of service that would be forthcoming. Angelina took charge of the sale and worked steadfastly in arranging open homes, then follow up with potential buyers from the open home resulting in a sale (total time 4 months). This was enhanced with constant and effective communication when required and not telling me what I would like to hear and advising of opportunities to best present the house for sale.

  • Ripple Realty is a small company with a team of people who know what they’re doing. It’s well named because the ripple effect they create in the market place is real. Angelina has sold three properties for us since mid 2012 so we don’t need to rave on about how good Ripple Realty is. The results speak for themselves. And speaking of appropriate names, we call Angelina the best Three Card Trick in Tassie! In 2011 my husband and I were planning to scale down towards retirement so we gave an investment property on the Esplanade at Blackmans Bay, along with our residential property in Tinderbox, to another agent for a period of four months and they didn’t get one bite for either property. Of course we had expenses, but felt compelled to take them off the market for a while. In 2012 we decided to give Ripple the oppotunity to sell Blackmans Bay. Angelina had a buyer in four weeks! In May 2013 we decided to ask Ripple to sell our Tinderbox home, plus our last long-held investment property in North Hobart. The property at Nth Hobart went on the market in late June and Tinderbox in late August. Angelina had a buyer for each property in late September – coincidentally two days apart! Both purchasers wanted to settle before Christmas and suddenly we were cashed up, and homeless…we’re renting for the first time in 40 years right now whilst taking our time to find exactly what we want to buy for our retirement. Don’t hesitate to call Ripple Realty

    S & J Mount – Tinderbox

  • Choosing Ripple was most definitely the right choice! We had an offer in less than 2 weeks of the house going on the market, and it sold at a price that we were very happy with. The photos and write up were excellent. We appreciated the regular feedback as part of an open, honest and transparent relationship. During complex challenges we were particularly grateful to be able to discuss matters and receive advice from our Property Consultant. We would most definitely recommend Ripple Realty to anyone considering selling.

    Kate - Hobart

  • We interviewed several agents, before settling on Angelina. Our neighbours had just sold their home, very speedily with Angelina. We were impressed with the price she got them. I called on them, and asked how they found their experience with Angelina. Their experience was, a stress less sale, with a wonderful, no- nonsense agent. We really liked the customised commission. Some of the agents we contacted, wanted triple this. Angelina sold our property in eight days, for a price we were very happy with. We were supported and kept informed every step of the way. I keep a daily diary, and the day we spoke to Angelina, back in February, I wrote this comment; ” Had Angelina from Ripple, do an appraisal on the house today. Really liked her. Thinking she is the most upfront, honest agent, I have spoken to.” Angelina is very frank, and won’t give anyone false hope, just to get them on the books. My in laws want to downsize, and get a place on the flat, closer to facilities. It is no surprise then, that we have asked Angelina to work with them. My father in law is close to ninety, so you can imagine the trust we have in this lady. She has an incredible work ethic, doesn’t suffer fools lightly, yet is an, extremely kind and thoughtful person. This lady is the complete package!

  • This letter confirms that I retained the services of Angelina Drobina of Ripple Realty to sell several of my flats. At the time of her appointment the market was ‘slow’. I had contacted other agents who’s follow up and service was pathetic. From the time Angelina received the listing, she injected tremendous enthusiasm and a positive ‘can do’ attitude. Her reports to me were direct with ‘no fluff’ which I appreciated. I may add that I am a retired Real Estate Agent in Melbourne, with over 40 years’ experience. I found Angelina very professional and we achieved excellent selling results. I have no hesitation in recommending her.

    Jim Paltos – Montrose

  • I recently sold our home through Ripple Real Estate. Angelina was professional, honest and provided us with invaluable advice in respect to the presentation of the property for sale and a realistic estimate of its value. As a result, our home sold quickly and for the price we had envisioned. I have the utmost faith in Angelina’s professionalism and wouldn’t hesitate to list with Ripple in future.

    Tania Gorringe

  • This is the most comfortable we’ve ever been with a Real Estate agent. Upon first meeting Angelina we both knew she was the right person to sell our house. We both thought the Ripple philosophy to selling was refreshingly honest. Angelina lived up to our expectations with a sale in two weeks very close to our agreed value in a slow market.

    Peter & Vicki – Claremont

  • What can I say about Angelina? We call you Wonder Woman! I have bought and sold many homes but you are the most caring and professional real estate agent I have ever dealt with. You kept us fully informed whilst consulting us on how we wanted to proceed. Although we had a small glitch (not of your making) you applied yourself to sorting it out even getting an electrician to our house at 4pm the day before Good Friday. Unheard of! You have excellent negotiating skills and your enthusiasm was terrific – not forgetting to mention your very reasonable fully inclusive commission price! You deserve to have great success!

    Marilyn - Lindisfarne

  • I wanted to take this opportunity to offer my warmest thanks to my Property Consultant and the Ripple Team for selling my Hobart property. Your professionalism and the effectiveness of your personal and online marketing meant I obtained a very prompt sale at a very good price. I have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone contemplating the sale of a property, as well as recommending Ripple’s excellent tailored commission and simple advertising program.

    Kay – Hobart

  • I would like to comment on the superior service provided to my wife and me by our Property Consultant and Ripple Realty in the selling of our house in South Hobart. Extremely responsive from our first meeting, through the process of promoting the property, showing the property to prospective purchasers and finally negotiating a contract for sale – our Consultant provided excellent service. This whole process, in our case, took just over a week. We also recommend Ripple Realty’s customised commission tailored to our requirements as this reflects their confidence in selling real estate.

    Nigel & Chris – South Hobart

  • Selling a house takes the right Real Estate Agent – so thank you Angelina for your enthusiasm and commitment, understanding and all-important communication which resulted in the successful sale of our home.

    Alex & Kay – Geilston Bay

  • We were one of Angelina’s first clients to use Ripple Realty. Angelina gave us confidence in her company, how she would strategically place our home in the market, and she did! Angelina got us more than the price we were expecting, what a surprise! Angelina is totally professional, and why would you pay more to other real estate agencies in commission when Ripple Realty can sell your home for a customised commission! Apart from selling our home, Angelina even arranged B & B accommodation when we moved out, prior to leaving Tassie on the Spirit. I would strongly recommend people ring Angelina and have a talk …… amazing experience!

    Judy & Eric - Lutana

  • We would like to formally say thank you very much for your professional attention to the sale of our family home. We were very pleased with the selling campaign and then the sale of our home. The experience of selling our home was made all the less stressful through your professionalism and we were especially impressed on how you kept us informed of all prospective buyers. As we leave our loving home in Lenah Valley and move on to the next chapter of our lives, we would like to thank you for making the selling of our home a simple task and will be recommending you to family and friends.

    Robert & Sally Blanden – Lenah

  • We are pleased to provide a testimonial concerning the recent sale of our property in Battery Point. Angelina Drobina of Ripple Realty provided a thoroughly professional service including pricing the property correctly, something which a number of other agents failed to do. She listened to our brief and followed our wishes diligently, negotiating a satisfactory outcome in all respects. Reporting on activity and inspection outcomes was prompt and frank and all other minor issues leading up to the settlement were attended to without exception. The icing on the cake is the very reasonable commission her company charges which makes one wonder about the many excessed elsewhere in the industry.
