 How long have you been in Real Estate?

15 (FANTASTIC!) years.

What aspect of Real Estate are you an expert in, or what aspect are you most proud of that you do?

Business development - building long term, consultative relationships with investors. As a trusted advisor to my clients, repeat and referral business is always my greatest compliment. Transparency, integrity and high-level customer service reflect my core values and behaviours.

What is the strangest/nicest/most interesting thing you have had to deal with, in your Real Estate career?

Coaching, training and consulting to the property management industry in Victoria provided me with valuable insight into how independent and franchise agents run their property management businesses. It was clear to me that retention of experienced property managers across the board was an issue, primarily due to excessive workloads, lack of support and training. Not all agents are equal, hence the variables in service delivery to investors across the board.

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?

Previous roles in Human Resources and advertising media helped me to understand the importance of people and relationships, the value of being truly consultative and client centric. I also learned the skills required to impact professional marketing advertising and campaigns, resulting in positive financial outcomes for my clients. Team work was absolutely critical to both roles.

What is the one piece of advice you would give a new Landlord/Vendor/Tenant/Client?

You don’t have to wait until your property is vacant, or a until a tenancy expires, to transfer management of your property to another agent. If you are tired of putting up with second rate service (let’s face it, some agents find it difficult to simply return a telephone call) then it’s time to take back control. I encourage you to reach out to a new agent - a trusted property management partner - who will add value and minimise financial risk by working with you to professionally manage your investment portfolio.
