Heather has been entrenched in property management since 2004, the entire time in based in Katikati, so she knows the Katikati landlords and tenants well along with the nature of our local environment.
Heather started out working in a local property management office then grew the confidence to branch out and launch her own property management business. Her business was very successful, however, with the expanding needs of her growing family, she decided to join the EVES Katikati team and combine her portfolio with EVES. She saw this as a wonderful opportunity to keep growing the portfolio in a team environment and with the support of the strong EVES brand, at the same time giving her more family time.
The Katikati and Waihi offices manage around 170 properties and has room to easily take on more managements due to the team highly proficient staff it has and streamlined property management systems in place.
Heather feels the advantages of working with EVES is "Our strength in the market place is positive, the supportive team is great to work with, and the well organised systems allow us to do what we do best - look after our clients and their investments".
Heather is a landlord in her own right so understands what a landlord is looking for in a property manager. Her previous working life was with Trust Care as an Administrator and Parafed Auckland working with clients with disabilities - both these positions have assisted Heather with her excellent awareness of 'people needs' and reading them so well.
Asked why she has chosen property management as her career "I like working with a variety of people and assessing their needs. Every day is different. Good communication is essential, and I find this easy to do. I help solve problems and I love my work".
Being a successful property manager also requires continual training to keep up with law changes and altering legal requirements. EVES have stringent ongoing training in place for the teams of property managers to ensure they all keep abreast of changes so that they can inform how they impact landlords and tenants.
Ask Heather what makes a successful Property Manager - she quickly replies "Communication".
