How long have you been in Real Estate?
I've been in Real Estate for about 2 months, but have always loved the whole industry. I have been known to spend hours of down time on realestate.com.au.
What aspect of Real Estate are you an expert in, or what aspect are you most proud of that you do?
I would say that through my time at LongView, I have become an expert in what goes into the process of listing and selling a property. I also pride myself on taking a holistic approach to buying and selling real estate that takes into account all options. It shouldn't just be about whether today is a good time to sell, but rather whether selling is the right choice at all, and if not, what other options there are that we can pursue.
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 was a mobilisation intern at Greenpeace Australia-Pacific. My job was to engage with the public around banning single use plastic bags in Australia. Engaging with people day in and day out is essentially what you do in any real estate job. It’s all about people!
What is the one piece of advice you would give a new Landlord/Vendor/Tenant/Client?
I would say that there’s no such thing as a bad question. If you want to know more about any aspect of the process, ask! It’s amazing what you can learn, and what we can learn as professionals, by listening to the questions of our clients.
