I have a new personal assistant and her name is Sarah Asbury. She is young and bubbly, smart and driven, fresh from high school. She completed year 12 at Oxley High School last year and began her journey into real state in year 11, studying her certificate 3 in property services. I first met Sarah at Tafe campus, when I visited the class to speak more about working in the industry. Sarah completed the course with flying colours and topped the class by coming first. I approached Sarah a couple of times on social media and sent her a job position we had available in our office at the time. She responded with I would like to finish my HSC first, but thank you for the opportunity. Then another position became available working a few hours a week to start learning the ropes while Sarah was still completing her HSC. She started to assist me with administration roles, such as data entry, documents, follow up phone calls and attending open houses with me. After Sarah completed her HSC, she was offered a full time position on reception and a few days a week working for me. She learnt more about the industry and how property management developed in the office. During this period, she was continuing her further education with her cert 4 for her license, through Tafe and Academic Pavilion. Now Sarah is my full time pa, her role is creating files and attending to any inspections/open houses, buyer follow up calls and to help me win more business. Her goal is to finish her cert 4 this year and to continue to grow her knowledge in real estate. I will support her with what area she would like to progress to working in the industry. However, she is leaning towards admin side of things, as she is very good at creating files, documentation and attention to detail. Welcome to the team Sarah.
