(Metro Hub)

I wear 2 hats professionally – an owners corporation manager and a residential property manager. In my OC capacity I have seen the best, the worst, and everything in between when it comes to PM in the buildings I manage.

I’m a big believer in PM. I know PM teams are usually seen as the poor cousin of the sales team, but I don’t see it that way. Besides, today’s tenants are tomorrow’s owners. Isn’t that a relationship worth fostering?

Interesting fact – I’m a self confessed coffee snob. Long blacks all the way for me! But a little thing called parenthood has taught me to appreciate the instant stuff too – as long as it’s Moccona. Any port in a storm, right?

Rob Gillies
(Metro Hub)

I’ve been working in the Residential Property Management industry for 13 years, having come from a decade long career in Hospitality. I’m a firm believer that customer service across the breadth of our portfolios should be the main focus in our day to day work, and that Department Heads and Managers need to be setting things up in a way that allows PM’s to do this.  Having worked for several large sales-based businesses I have an understanding of the challenges PM’s come up against not only with their day to day work, but also within the businesses and business owners they work for, and have a passion to see the industry change for the better.  Now, as a business owner myself I love to have the ability to set things up for my team to do the job “properly” and provide high level customer service and support to our Rental Providers and Renters alike.  Being able to see PM’s grow into a role and become the full package provide me with a bigger sense of accomplishment than most other things in the business.
