Why did you decide to pursue a career in property?
When the opportunity presented itself to me via a friend, I felt it would be a good source of income. As a freelance graphic designer, I realised that embarking on a totally different career would be both challenging and demanding.
What do you find to be the most enjoyable and the most challenging aspects of the job?
Currently what I love most about the job is handing over the keys. Seeing the look on the faces of first-time homeowners is rewarding. Learning how property processes work has been equally fascinating. The most challenging aspects of the job have been the emotional intensity, which accompanies each deal, on the part of the seller or the purchaser and encountering agents who lack integrity.
What characteristics, in your opinion, make for a great estate agent/broker and why?
Integrity, patience, humility, self-motivation, a double dose of tenacity and a non-stop ‘can do’ attitude are in my opinion important characteristics for a great estate agent.
What are some of your career goals?
• To be a top seller in my market
• Be the agent of choice in my market
• Have a business based on referral
