2012 Knight Frank (Australia) One accomplishment that stands out is a successful lease restucturing negotiation which resulted in a 60% increased revenue for my Client for a 10 year Lease renewal of a national chain Tenant, which also involved an expansion and major renovation. This was achieved by arranging alternative space for the Tenant occupying the space in the adjacent unit at another premises owned by the same client. In addition, the Lease incentive negotiated was 1 month, compared to the standard 6 month Tenant incentive.


My background and major were in Business accounting; however I found my niche in Property Accounting whilst working in London, U.K for over 7 years. This experience developed my passion for the Real Estate industry, to which I worked for high profile property management companies for globally renowned clients (e.g. ING and Henderson Global Investors), and also for real estate investment pension fund managers such as AXA and Equitable Life Assurance Society. My portfolio whilst working for AXA REIM was valued at over GBP1.1 billion. I was able to transition into the Property Management side of the industry whilst in my homeland of Perth, Australia where for 4 years I utilized the experience and mentorship gained from London to achieve the best results, both for my career as a licensed Property Manager, and for my diverse portfolio clients. Upon arriving in Vancouver in 2013, I completed licensing requirements and have worked with Colliers since August 2013, where I have also acheived LEED Green Associate and RPA designations. In 2016, I was fortunate to be selected for the inital group to undertake the Harvard Mentor Manager program.
