45 Amelia Street, Fortitude Valley, will remain the home base of Sequel PR.

Ms Dooley said Sequel PR would lease the building back for three years with an option for another three-year extension after that. “We’re not going anywhere,” she told Property Confidential.

Robert Dunne and Will Carman of Savills – Brisbane had set the property to sell under the hammer. Mr Dunne confirmed the property was snapped up prior to auction.

The property is in bustling Fortitude Valley, just minutes from the CBD.

The 419sq m, two-level office building has 11 car-parking bays with net income after all building outgoings at $205,000 per annum.

The sale comes months after Ms Dooley sold a Beaudesert commercial “shed” for $1.018m in June, according to CoreLogic. It housed a 170sq m warehouse on a 1,017sq m corner block.
