**Currently on maternity leave** Hi, my name is Tabitha, I moved to Cairns approximately 11 years ago from Brisbane where I worked for a company that ran a network of 140 restoration businesses across Australia for insurance claims.
After the devastating Cyclone Larry hit in 2007, I was approached by one of these companies to move to Cairns to help the rebuild of Innisfail; this is when I fell in love with Cairns and knew that I was never going to move back to a big city, so I now call myself a local!
The real estate and building industry was always a passion of mine, the emotions that people have when matched with their perfect home gives me the most amazing buzz.
My husband and I created a small portfolio of rental properties which we not only self-managed but also started our own maintenance and tiling business servicing many local real estate companies for the last 10 years; Our number 1 priority was to ensure that all owners, tenants, property managers and properties were treated with the same passion as we treated our own.
Four years ago I decided it was time to spread my wings and became a property manager, last year I was lucky enough to be offered a job with Freemans in Sales supporting our Senior Sales Manager; This new exciting role was amazing, the highs and lows of sales was a roller coaster ride, but my real passion was still Property Management.
Property management to me is like a marriage, trust and honesty are the foundation, followed by give and take, the occasional disagreement, a lot of negotiating and most of all respect, Respect to your tenants, owners, tradespeople and fellow employees – this is the right combination to receive a successful result for all involved.
At Freemans we have a bright, bubbly, supportive team which I love working with, they inspire me every day to live by the following motto: “You can achieve anything if you apply yourself to the fullest”.
If you need your property to be managed or sold, please contact me or any of the Freemans team.
