Elite Property Manager - - Contents -

Where are you from orig­i­nally and where do you call home?

I was born in Trar­al­gon, Vic­to­ria but I grew up in Ade­laide and moved to Mel­bourne 10 years ago this month. I call Mel­bourne home although I still get a bit nos­tal­gic about Ade­laide.

Who or what inspires you at the mo­ment?

I am in­spired by Car­olyn Creswell, the founder of Car­man's Muesli. So many peo­ple be­lieve that Car­man's has been an overnight suc­cess. The re­al­ity is they chipped away at it for over 20 years.

What is the most im­por­tant project you are work­ing on right now?

We're work­ing on a large com­mer­cial project. We are in the process of rolling out a train­ing and on­go­ing out­sourced trust ac­count­ing project, as­sist­ing the client with the man­age­ment, train­ing and out­sourced trust ac­count­ing for their com­mer­cial port­fo­lio of 3,500 com­mer­cial prop­er­ties.

Trend to watch in the in­dus­try?

Cloud-based real es­tate soft­ware. Pro­grams such as Rock­end's Prop­er­tyTree are de­signed for the fu­ture and de­liver lead­ing tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tions to trans­form the way you work.
