“My dad, Ivan Cleary, is my business and life mentor, and he taught me to always be community minded and follow the process and have discipline in everything that I do,” she said.
“My dad inspires me, he’s always talked about putting in the work as there’s no shortcuts to success. I have a lot to thank him for.”
It appears real estate also runs in the family with Ms Cleary’s uncle Paul Franks also in the industry.
“I feel like I have come home as I actually started my real estate career at age 18 at a Ray White agency in northern beaches at Warriewood with Paul Franks, my uncle,” she said.
“I was there from the first day and learned the ropes from him.

“I have transitioned back to Ray White for my own personal growth and development.”
Ms Cleary is also the founder of a women’s networking group in Penrith called EMPOWHER, which meets quarterly to empower like minded business women to reach new heights.
“There weren’t any networking organisations for women in Penrith, so it was born from the idea to support women to reach their full potential in whatever field they are in,” she said.
“It began a women’s networking group and has become a niche group for influential women in the area to refer and share their knowledge.
“It’s been so beneficial to so many women in business to support each other and mentor each other.”

Ms Cleary is no stranger to the spotlight, with not only her famous family but her brother Nathan jokingly blaming her for damaging the NRL trophy during the Panthers’ 2021 premiership celebrations.
Cleary said his sister had been “banned” from going near the trophy prior to the 2022 Grand Final after mystery surrounded how the Provan-Summons Trophy was broken into pieces, the year before, however Indi was reportedly “in the vicinity” at the time”.
“She is banned if we win it,” Cleary joked.
Ray White Nepean Group General Manager Daniel Piredda welcomed Indi Cleary to the team, and said he was thrilled to have her on-board.
“We aim to provide a springboard to success for all our agents,” he said.
“We offer all the training, support, technology and help our team needs. Our group is experienced in helping young agents become top level performers in our industry.
“We have the runs on the board and I know Indi’s mindset and work ethic will ensure she is successful in her career with us.”
