Sunday mornings growing up were spent snipping my favourite properties out of the Real Estate section of my Grandfathers Sunday Telegraph, i have had a love for all things Real Estate since before i can even remember. To this day that love has continued to blossom – from this love Managed by Kate was created.
After starting my Real Estate Career as a Property Officer undertaking a two-year traineeship with a globally recognised Real Estate in the Hunter Valley in 2009, I found success early on.
After only a year in the industry, my passion was recognised and I was promoted to Department Manager learning the ins and outs of all aspects of Property Management, which I have continued to grow over the past twelve years. This event led to an overseas business trip spending time learning foreign Real Estate practices and I was awarded Trainee of the Year for my efforts.
After returning to my family’s hometown of Gunnedah 5 years ago i would constantly receive feedback from investors growing frustrated with the skills shortage in Property Management and constant staffing changes and turnover.
The latest industry trends and technologies were not being utilised given the remote location of our township and the expense involved for businesses. As all agencies have large sales departments with high commissions compared to that of the Property Management sector, this meant that the focus was primarily invested in sales departments only. I therefore created a Property Management focused business which specialises in consistency, transparent communication, continuous training, industry connections, latest technologies, and Property Management trends to ensure my investors are receiving the best service that Property Management can offer.
I pride myself on being an expert in my field, we save our clients substantially in reduced vacancy rates, we assist with tax depreciation reports, providing quality tenants to ensure the quality of an investment property is continued throughout the tenancy. We also assist with project management to upgrade properties to ensure maximum rental returns are received and that the capital worth of the property.
We are real, we are authentic, and we want to create a difference in our industry.
