A young, vibrant and multi award winning agent is fast becoming know and an upcoming game changer, with over 10 years experience in the real estate industry, Kaly understands what it takes to be a successful agent. After spending time in conveyancing, property valuation, sales, she then found her passion in property management. Since working in property management over 8 years, Kaly opened her very own agency in November 2016. Since then has grown her portfolio to just under 200 managements, by running a innovative, mobile agency, the first in her region. By adopting technology and a personalised service, 94% of the business has been gained through referral and word of mouth. Kaly finds by not focusing on the number of managements you should be gaining and following expectations of fast rent roll growth, but decided to focus on customer service and getting that right as her main priority.
