I come to Complete Realestate with over 11 years of experience within the administration industry which has enabled an easy transition into the real estate industry as a client liaison officer.

You will find me at the front of the office welcoming our clients on site while also managing phone calls by directing enquiries to the appropriate team member if I cannot be of assistance. Although my focus is providing seamless customer service to our clients, I offer support to all divisions within the business and I am also in charge of our office operation.

My day to day tasks include welcoming clients, assisting clients with their enquiries, following up on maintenance requests, managing office supplies, office duties and errands, welcoming new tenants with their tenant pack and collecting keys from vacating tenants.

My willingness to take on new tasks and to be adaptable are essential to my role, which is forever expanding and introducing me to different aspects of the business.

Starting out as a sales agent in Naracoorte, I joined Complete Real Estate as a leasing agent in 2016 before taking time out to start a family. As a long-standing staff member of Complete Real Estate, I bring a vast range of experience to the team.

Since returning to work; I offer support to our sales division including overseeing and completing all legislative documents and agency agreement renewals, agency subscriptions, marketing in the formation of promotion of our sales team, collecting reviews on Rate My Agent and Google, reporting when required and conducting market research.

During these tasks, my strong sales skills have proved invaluable with maintaining client relations with our vendors, purchasers and existing landlords.

My role also expands to company level where I am involved in company marketing, software and product research and implementing company procedures. With extensive knowledge in both residential divisions of the business, I am able to link the two together to create an all-round service for our clients.

Along with my years of experience, my reliability and dynamic work approach make me an all-rounder team member of Complete Real Estate.

Landlords and tenants can take comfort in the fact that, when it comes to putting systems and processes in place, my ability is second to none. It’s these procedures that ensure we provide all clients with a first-class service.

My role is varied. Currently, I manage around 90 commercial tenancies in Mount Gambier. This involves leasing (including helping landlords with first-time leases), commercial property marketing campaigns and oversight of the creation of documentation needed to satisfy the Retail and Commercial act and regulations for forming a commercial contract.

Preventative maintenance and compliance reviews are also key in commercial property management. In my role, I ensure that scheduled maintenance is completed and tenancies are kept compliant.

At Complete Commercial we know our commercial landlords need peace of mind that we have a lease in place with tenants at all times. We ensure leases remain up to date and cover any potential issues that may arise. My years of experience alongside the excellent relationships I have forged with conveyancers and solicitors is additional value that our clients receive the benefit of.

On the anniversary of the tenancy, myself and the team have standard procedures for negotiating and action where required rent reviews (annual increases), rights for renewal or rights for termination that help to encourage and support tenants to make the decision to renew their lease when appropriate.

Additionally, my role involves drafting documentation for commercial property sales. This includes Sales Agency Agreements, Contracts of Sale and Form 1 documentation.

With commercial sales and property management, it’s always a team effort. I enjoy working with the Complete Commercial team, to give and receive support, and be on hand to assist any member of the team who may not have my depth of knowledge. Last but not least, my experience enables me to look at the big picture for the Mount Gambier commercial property market and help landlords and tenants make more informed choices.
