It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks here at Metro with award nominations left right and centre which has been fantastic for myself and the team.
Last Thursday evening myself, my husband and several of my team flew up to the Gold Coast to attend the REIA Awards for Excellence (a national real estate award night) where I was deemed a Finalist in the ‘Residential Property Manager of the Year’ award. Due to the fact that I had won the Victorian award for this category in October last year I was thrilled to discover I had become a Finalist in these National Awards. The evening was a gala event and we all ‘invested’ in some fabulous dresses and gowns especially for the evening which took place in the ballroom at the Marriott Resort & Spa in Surfers Paradise. There was some stiff competition for the title as 6 other fabulous women were nominated and unfortunately we did not come away with a win this time, ah well, we look forward to next year. A great time was had by all, we looked fabulous (if I do say so myself) and we certainly danced the night away.
No sooner had we returned to the cooler climate of Melbourne a few of the team including myself were off to the LPMA (Leading Property Managers of Australia) Conference which runs a 2 day Property Manager & Principals Forum once a year. Within this forum Principals and their PM’s are witness to some fantastic industry presenters and new innovations in our field. It is a great eye-opener and we always come away with some great ideas that we will no doubt be implementing here at Metro in the upcoming months. Day one at the LPMA closed with their Annual Awards evening where we discovered that we were one of only 3 Finalists for ‘Excellence in Business Development’ a fantastic result and a great surprise (I was presented with a lovely trophy too!) Again much dancing and fun were had, so a great night all in all.

Coming so close to a win with both of these award evening amongst our peers in the industry really cemented for me that the hard work and dedication that myself and my team put into taking care of our clients is recognised by our colleagues in the industry, which is very humbling. So we now look forward to the rest of this coming year and strive to continue to ensure our clients have the best advice and service from Metro PM and we will let the dice fall where they may next award season.
