Marlies and Jai Hobbs are a wife and husband team, originally from Cairns and now based in Noosa. Marlies is an ex-property development lawyer with a passion for education and creative projects, and Jai is a mortgage broker with over 15 years’ experience. They have two sons, Troy and Zac.

Together they have built more than 10 properties, started, owned and operated several businesses, including a mortgage brokerage, retail shop and cafés, a franchise company, online shop, a ready-made meal business and property developments.
