For some, a job is only about the need for income, a means to an end, cash to pay the inevitable bills of life. For others, like Natalie, it’s a passion, a calling, a “fire in the belly” even.
Despite professional success in her home city of Hamilton, Natalie’s passion for real estate looked for a greater challenge – a larger, more diverse environment that could truly answer the call or tame the “fire”. Applying her signature grit, drive and unwavering determination to this end, Natalie made the move to Melbourne in 2011, quickly establishing herself as a hard working, committed professional in the property management arena.
Her outstanding communication and customer service skills, firm commitment to trusting and transparent relationships, excellent industry knowledge, attention to detail and exemplary work ethic have seen her enjoy significant success throughout her ten years in Senior Property and Business Development Manager roles. Now, this extensive skill set and wealth of experience are set to benefit a new range of clients in her role as Sales Consultant – a fresh challenge to fulfil the prevailing passion.
Away from work, Natalie relishes the bayside lifestyle provided by her home in St Kilda, spending time with her partner at the beach and cafes, regularly catching up with girlfriends over brunch, exercising at the gym or shopping for shoes!
