Meet the founder
From a very early age, my parents instilled in me that if you are going to do something, do it the best of your ability. The greatest part about this lesson was not just that it set me up to succeed in life, but that it extended beyond that to my overall character. It shaped how I treat people, and how I allow others to treat me.
Prior to Excellence Property Management, I co-owned an agency where I was a minority shareholder. As a minority shareholder, I was essentially still an employee with minimal control over how things were done. As an enthusiastic change agent with a drive for excellence, it emerged quite quickly that it wouldn’t be a long-term arrangement.
Though despite parting ways, that experience is one of my most valued. My passion for the industry was alight and I was able to establish my professional compass. I learnt how to excel in property management, how to help owners achieve the best return on their investment whilst also helping good tenants have a great rental experience.
That experience also taught me how to not treat people.
As an ambitious young person, I found the environment to be lacking from various angles. The environment had people perform in response to fear where shareholder agendas seemed to trump the wellbeing of their employees, instead of an encouraging environment where people could grow and thrive professionally.
This is why I started Excellence Property Management. I wanted to create an agency, where young people such as myself could learn property management in a safe environment (to learn more about my young staff, check out our meet the team page). An environment where they would be held accountable to their standard of work but in turn would have the support and systems to do it.
Their growth and success would not be to fill my pockets, but because genuinely, that is what honest, accountable, and hard-working people deserve.
To quote one of the best pieces of professional advice shared with me, and as the author Marsha Sinetar wrote; do what you love, the money will follow.
