Thriving on change and challenge
Deb Christensen, based in our Waihi office, has been in the property management industry since 2009. She is proud to be one of a close supportive team managing 170 properties at EVES across Waihi and Katikati, the most established and leading property management company in the area.
Not many property managers can claim to have been PA to the manager of one of the largest underground mining companies in Western Australia! Deb initially came to property management in an administration role which provided a great platform of industry knowledge. When the opportunity arose to become a property manager Deb’s "jumped at the opportunity to work in a changing and challenging industry and have not looked back." She has owned her own properties in both Australia and New Zealand for over 25 years so has a good understanding of what landlords require.
Deb sees property management as a fluid industry where a day never goes by without learning something, either in her dealings with landlords and tenants, or through shared team knowledge in the office or via the ongoing training seminars run by professionals in the industry.
Deb is a very active and energetic property manager with a strong work ethic which demonstrates that being pro-active rather than re-active creates effective management where issues are addressed before they become problems.
The Waihi and Katikati team manages properties 'right across the board' from modest one bedroom flats to executive lifestyle properties so property managers wear many hats and deal with a wide cross section of society. Deb's ability to relate easily to a range of people is a definite asset.
On the rare occasion a client cannot get instant access to Deb she is probably at sea "My passion outside my work and family is big game fishing".
