LLOYD PAYNE – General Manager Fresh Homes
Lloyd loves rugby, barbeques and spending time with his beautiful wife Kim and their gorgeous children at their Gold Coast property. What you didn’t know about Lloyd is that he has a keen mechanical mind and started his working career with the Queensland Railways in Townsville as an apprentice Fitter Mechanic. He later moved into property, first in sales and eventually managing a number of regional sales offices and building teams in Queensland. Lloyd completed a Building and Construction Certificate followed by a MBA with James Cook University.
He began Fresh Homes in 2006 in Loganholme, Brisbane and later opened up another office in North Queensland. Lloyd is very proud of his team of people, whom he has known personally as well as professionally for many years.

Tania is a true people person and loves designing but more importantly helping her clients realise their dreams of owning their own home. She started her property journey 15 years ago building her first house in her hometown of Townsville with the help of Lloyd and Kim Payne. Since then, Tania has travelled, living in Tasmania for several years before returning to her home in Townsville. She began her working career as a hairdresser and learnt very quickly the importance of listening to people. Later Tania moved into retail fashion; and proving that she can help anyone regardless of the industry, she changed course and worked in the mechanical and auto industry. Nearly three years ago, Tania joined Fresh Homes in Townsville and is now one of our leading Design Consultants.

DONNA CLARK – Accounts Manager
Donna is the engine at Fresh Homes, keeping everyone on track. She has a very colourful and interesting work history. Donna began working as a bookkeeper in the late 1990s with a land developer in Canberra before moving into the mining industry where she worked for an earthmoving company operating in satellite pits in NT, Qld and WA. Donna’s role had a strong focus on administration including human resources and safety. With the slump in the mining industry, Donna moved to Brisbane and was snapped up by Fresh Homes where she has been an integral part of the business for the past 10 years. As a proud grandmother, Donna enjoys spending time with her grandchildren and family.
