How long have you been in Real Estate?
Starting out as a weekend receptionist, I have been in Real Estate for almost 3 years and counting!
What aspect of Real Estate are you an expert in, or what aspect are you most proud of that you do?
I pride myself on maintaining clear and open communication with clients in every stage of their investment’s lifespan. I passionately believe that a large part of being a great Property Manager is keeping yourself informed of changes in the industry and consistently communicating this to clients to provide the best investment advice suitable to their asset.
What is the most interesting non-Real Estate job you have ever had, and what about that job has helped you most in your current Real Estate role?
I previously tutored mathematics to children between the ages of 5 – 16 years old. Many of the challenges I faced in this role revolved around adapting to different levels of understanding and being able to gauge behaviour. From this, I have been able to refine my adaptability skills and apply this to tasks in my role as Property Manager which comes in handy when unforeseen situations arise.
What is the strangest thing you have had to deal with, in your career in real estate?
Whilst I was finishing up an open inspection, a couple of prospective Tenants came back and told me that the neighbouring Tenant had just backed into my car and drove off. Apparently, the driver was on their phone and therefore didn’t notice they had hit my car.
What is the one piece of advice you would give a new Landlord/Vendor/Tenant/Client?
Landlord – I cannot stress enough how important Landlord Insurance is. To counter the uncertainty that often comes with leasing, you cannot put a price on peace of mind as a Property Investor.
Tenant – always maintain clear and open communication with your Agent; we are here to make the Landlord-Tenant relationship easier and smoother for everyone.
