"A ship in the harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for."
I took the plunge into my real estate career at 16 years of age. I had dropped out of school and had a driving passion to succeed. I had set myself the goal of activating and embracing change within the real estate industry. However, I was unsure of what that looked like yet. That change was discovered years later during a time that was referred to as the "vacation rental boom". I was recruited straight out of school by one of Launceston, Tasmania's most prestigious Real Estate firms, beginning my career in a sales based environment. Before moving on to continue my career in a globally renowned firm and expanding my knowledge into property management. It was here, paired with regular vacations and an ongoing passion for tourism, that I began to understand the demand for a property management company that specializes in vacation rentals. I launched Hideaway Vacation Rental Management in 2019, at 23 years of age. With my beloved Border Collie Arlo, as my office receptionist, (and sanity keeper). With no prior business experience, but a deep understanding that the property industry was changing. Hence my motto of "Active & Embrace Change". It was the perfect example of "winging it!". Now, with a continuously growing team & portfolio, we are now paving the way for vacation rental management in Tasmania, with the hope of expansion nationally. In my spare time, my partner & I love to travel & explore, with our border collie. We met through our love of the outdoors and now we work to spend our time chasing amazing surf & hiking locations around the world.
