Deborah Codd – Office Manager (Pimpama)
Deborah comes to Homes4Rent with a wealth of varied background experience, from seven years working with the State (NSW) electricity provider to managing seven branches of Foreign Exchange in Sydney.
Legislation requirements, data analysis, attention to detail were all qualities that had to be followed to a ‘T’ when working for the electricity company handling escalated complaints via NSW Ombudsman office. A sound and solid understanding of legislation was not only critical in the role but ensured a satisfactory outcome for all.
Prior to a career change into real estate four years ago, Deborah has owned several investment properties herself over the years so this gives her an insight into both sides of the story as either a landlord or a property manager. She believes that to be a good property manager you need to excel at negotiation and communication and so welcomes the latest technology and systems that assist her in achieving this. Having a strategic approach to property management and ensuring best practice is followed gives Deborah two tools that enable her to excel in the role.
Taking pride in her work, providing the full story, extensive real estate knowledge and exceptional communication commitments, make Deborah the obvious choice to manage your investment property that you have worked so hard to achieve.
