Cloud nine: Keeping your agency safely online
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.
