Rugby’s Fainga’a brothers seal land deal

RUGBY union’s Fainga’a brothers have recently sold property ties to Brisbane, with the promise to return to the city they love.

Anthony and Saia offloaded the cleared land at 10 Rupert St, Windsor for $1,580,000 to a local builder who is planning to develop the site into two multi-storey high-end homes.

Saia had dreams of building a house for his family on the block but a rugby offer out of England, too good to turn down, was placed on the table.

The professional sportsmen are currently kicking the footy overseas, while also investing in the development of 19 townhouses in Canberra.

Their strategy when it comes to project construction is simple.

“Find a good team that you can trust, and build quality,” Saia said.

Property is a passion Saia wants to turn his focus to full-time when his rugby career wraps up.

“Brisbane is my favourite city, I can’t wait to live back there one day and get stuck into the property and construction field,” he said.

“I am currently studying Project Management at university to help me in the future.”

Ray White New Farm’s Meaghan Bakker, who managed the sale of 10 Rupert St, said the volume of interested buyers was huge.

“I had hundreds of enquiries, it’s an incredible block with great views,” Ms Bakker said.

“There are not many blocks left that can be split. They’re becoming rarer in Brisbane, especially ones with full city views on a beautiful and quiet street.”
