Having grown up in Dunedin, my involvement in local property began early and has come a full circle. From carrying out maintenance in student flats as a teenager, and living in them as a “scarfie”, to owning a home and looking to grow my own property investment portfolio. As a property manager, this local knowledge and experience complements more than 10 years in the real estate industry.
A commercial property manager for more than 7 years, I’ve always worked in property management, for the London 2012 Olympics Athletes’ Village and in social housing in the UK, and in a commercial role in Sydney. I enjoyed 2 years in the residential and student property management team at Edinburgh before branching back into the Commercial sector again, offering management and sales and leasing services. I thrive on the vibrancy of the work, getting out and about with a variety of people and properties, and finding the best solution for my clients.
In all aspects of real estate work, communication is key. I find if you follow up on the small things and remain calmly persistent, you’ll find even mountains will move.
Away from work, playing golf is my favourite way to keep fit and unwind.
