How long have you been in Real Estate?
On and off for over 20 years.
What aspect of Real Estate are you an expert in, or what aspect are you most proud of that you do?
I am a Trust Accountant. Every day I manage and account for large sums of incoming and outgoing funds. I am responsible for ensuring payments and statements are produced and delivered to Landlords and Property Investors on time. Given Property Investors seek a financial return on their investment, my reporting and processing of rental payments is always under the spotlight and needs to be 100% correct. Thank goodness my attention to detail, particularly for numbers, is pretty good!
What is the strangest/nicest/most interesting thing you have had to deal with, in your Real Estate career?
We had a Tenant send a dollar in the mail once, he’d vacated the property months before, but knew he still owed a dollar and wanted to settle his debts. Very honest and diligent!
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?
Being a ‘Mum’ which taught me patience!
