Why did you decide to pursue a career in property?

My passion for the property industry stems from the fact that I love being around people.  It enables me to meet interesting people from all walks of life. Owning my own real estate company gives me independence, flexibility and a good source of income.


What do you find to be the most enjoyable and the most challenging aspects of the job?

Finding the “right” house to suit the buyer and their budget can be a challenge sometimes.  A big challenge for me is when I hand over a transaction to the bond originators and attorneys – I have no control as to the progression of the sale. The most enjoyable aspect of the job is when I get to hand over the keys to a new house to a new owner, the delight and joy on their face is priceless.


What characteristics in your opinion, make for a great estate agent/broker and why?

Being passionate and knowledgeable about your product; listening to the buyer and understanding their needs; being self-motivated (especially when you run your own business); people orientated and keeping up with the latest industry trends.


What are some of your career goals?

Providing my clients with the best service during their transaction that they would not hesitate to refer me to their friends and family. Becoming the estate agency of choice to the buyers and sellers in the area that I service.
