I spent the first part of my working life as an Engineer, having graduated from Sydney University (Elect Eng) and Macquarie University (MB Admin). I am most proud of my early control systems which are still working today, namely North Coast CTC and Junee – Albury CTC. The second part of my working life began in 2000, when Gordon and I purchased Comres Property Services which specialized in commercial sales and property management. In 2008, we acquired Chambers & Frewin First National Hornsby and I managed the large residential property management portfolio. Recently, I have moved into residential sales as a natural pathway from property management. I believe I have accumulated a lot of experience in the greater Hornsby area and can provide relevant and up to date information to our client base. With my engineering background, I have renovated many properties for our owners so I have an understanding of how much to spend in order to maximise the property return. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with all community of buyers and investors.
I began my career by completing an apprenticeship with the Department of Defence. Over the years I have worked in various industries from electrical switchboards to lightning protection. My first foray into the world of real estate was in 2000 when Dennis and I purchased a small specialist commercial real estate business in Parramatta. After eight successful years, we decided to expand the business and purchased Chambers & Frewin First National. This provided us with the opportunity to explore the other areas of real estate, namely residential sales, leasing and property management. We decided fairly quickly to amalgamate both agencies into one and made our home base in Hornsby. As the Director of Commercial Property Management, Sales and Leasing, it didn’t take me long to realise that in order to be efficient and successful in this industry, I needed to understand and emphasise with both my landlords and my tenants. Following this reasoning has provided me with some wonderful professional relationships.
I have worked at Chambers & Frewin for over 11 years in sales, marketing and property management. I grew up on the North Shore and I still reside in the area with my family. Living here for such a long time has allowed me to become very familiar with all aspects of the Hornsby area and surrounds. I believe this in-depth knowledge provides me with an advantage in the industry. As a Property Manager, I believe with my communication and negotiation skills, I am able to deliver the best results possible for my clients. I feel I am dedicated and disciplined in being completely transparent with my clients, resulting in a high level of integrity and trust.
I have been a fully licensed real estate agent since 1996 and offer many years of knowledge and experience in the commercial real estate industry. My experience covers the whole spectrum of commercial property including retail, commercial, industrial, mixed developments, land re-development and land acquisitions. I specialise in sales and management of industrial and retail properties, particularly shopping centres and SMSF properties. I am also a licensed Strata Manager and can help with all your strata management needs. I look forward to assisting you with your compliance, repairs & maintenance and bookkeeping requirements.
I started my career as the Private Secretary to the Registrar of the Council of Auctioneers and Agents, which was the semi government body which licensed and controlled real estate agents, stock and station agents and auctioneers in NSW. I then spent many years in the medical industry in various roles including customer service, importing/exporting, stock control, orders processing, quality assurance and general admin. In 2015 I joined the team at Chambers & Frewin First National. My position is very varied as I am involved in customer service and admin support in sales, commercial property management and residential property management. I constantly strive to ensure my role is performed efficiently and consistently to a high standard and to deliver a professional and friendly manner towards all our valued clients.
