Kady joined Colliers Wollongong almost 9 years ago and over these years she has developed a diverse property skillset, from property management to commercial and industrial sales and leasing. Initially employed in an administrative role, Kady quickly progressed to the position of Assistant Property Manager, taking care of the day-to-day operations of a portfolio of over 200-properties.
In 2019, Kady was promoted to the position of Commercial Leasing Executive. In this role, Kady’s solid foundation across many aspects of the business gave her a unique and invaluable ability to approach any property opportunity with a well-rounded outlook, ensuring our clients had a seamless, profitable experience. Kady has achieved a great deal during her time with Colliers Wollongong and much of this success is due to her ability to connect with clients and develop long term, stable relationships. These strong relationships were particularly valuable throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, where Kady utilised her property knowledge and adaptability to keep clients informed about the changing circumstances within commercial property, giving them the confidence to make decisions and ensure the continuity of their business.
I believe that connecting with people and sustaining robust relationships is critical to creating tangible impact and accelerating business success. Leasing and asset management are crucial for business growth, and I am determined to help my clients navigate this process as seamlessly and efficiently as possible to maximise financial return and satisfaction.
With over 10 years' experience in the property sector, I have honed my technical skills and strategic acumen with extensive experience in strata, residential and commercial real estate within the Illawarra.
