What is your role/position at DK? 

Sales and Leasing Consultant.

 

Where would we find you on your day off? 

Visiting Mum at her aged care facility or spending time outdoors.

 

Best thing about working at DK? 

It’s hard to choose! It’s a great company from the top down (it must be after 40 years), the team interaction is exceptional and everyone here loves what they do.

 

What are you watching on Netflix? 

I’m not a Netflix man, but I do love Five Day Flip on free-to-air TV.

 

Personal mantra? 

Give great, honest customer service and you will thrive.

 

Dream travel destination? 

Space.

 

Advice for landlords? 

There is regular discussion regarding the recent hikes in land tax which is planned to become annual rather than every two years. Some savvy investors are taking the opportunity to sell some of their poorly performing properties while the market is strong.

 

Advice for tenants? 

While interest rates are low, why not consider purchasing instead of leasing? We can always lease the premises you are currently in now if you find the right place to buy.

 

Three things you’d choose to take with you if you were stranded on a desert island? 

A hat, a mountain bike and a couple of good books.

 

Any favourite quotes or sayings that help keep you motivated? 

‘If you dream it and live it, it will happen’.

 

Favourite travel destination? 

India for its diversity and Vietnam its food.
