A retirement resulting in the Sale of one Real Estate Company and an unexpected resignation here turned out to be very fortuitous for Cameo when they secured Helens services as her considerable experience both in Property Management & Real Estate Sales completes what is now a formidable Team here at Cameo.
Hailing from Wellington in “The Land of the Long White Cloud”, Helen has called Australia and the Gold Coast home for 10 years. Having actively bought and sold her own investment properties over the years, it was a natural transition for her to turn an interest into a career.
Interestingly enough though, her initial career path started with Olivetti which graduated to an IT based styled role as a PC Administrator & Communications Service Co-ordinator that well and truly explains her understanding and patience when dealing with today’s evolved technology.
Helen managed & audited software and hardware databases as well as lending her astute purchasing skills in the acquisition of both hardware and software packages which delivered savings to her employer. This unique ability was not lost on her superiors and it earned Helen a promotion as a Wang Systems Administrator overseeing & supervising the systems & computer operators within the company.
Her later role with EDS New Zealand (formerly Databank Systems Ltd) as a Service Centre Analyst further developed her skills in streamlining processes that increased productivity within the company as well as providing her with an insight to organisational plans, procedures and reporting methodologies that have really enhanced her abilities in this industry where time management and organisational skills define the difference between a good and an excellent real estate professional.
Helen acquired her Real Estate Licence in July 2007 and took up a position as a relieving Sales Agent until a more permanent position presented itself in 2009 at Professionals in Southport. As a Property Manager of a 150 plus portfolio, Helen soon proved her worth providing a first class service to her extensive clientele.
A privately owned Company was fortunate enough to lure her away in 2012 and it was where she remained as a manger of a 200 plus personal portfolio as well as being the Company’s senior Trainer until this year when its owner decided to retire and sold the business.
Helen is the true “team player”; she is thoughtful & creative and combines a methodical & conscientious approach with innovation and imagination to achieving successful outcome at both a personal & team level.
Easy going and friendly; Helen could be underestimated as these traits mask a highly competent, focussed professional whose work ethic and integrity will not accept any compromise, a bonus for Cameo’s client who will benefit from her high standard of service.
Helen’s more personal interests and pursuits include home improvements and interior decorating which can be very time consuming so the time she gets to socialise with friends and having personal outings with her husband & two sons is treasured. Travel remains very high on her list of things to do and Helen says she is going to be actively working towards ticking off a long list of places from that bucket list!
