The Currambine, Western Australia, office has added an experienced property manager to its team, with the hopes it will facilitate rent roll growth.
Tracy Kriwopischin joins the RE/MAX Extreme team as business development manager, with a primary focus on the office’s property management business.
The network’s managing director, Joel Davoren, commented that the group was incredibly fortunate to land the coup of securing Ms Kriwopischin.
“She has a huge amount of experience and expertise and is certainly the right person to take an already successful property management business to the next level with solid growth in the number of managed properties,” he said.
An industry professional since joining her family real estate business at the age of 18, Ms Kriwopischin has worn a number of different hats during her professional career — from receptionist right through to property and business manager.
Ms Kriwopischin’s career saw her join a large independent West Australian real estate firm, where she was credited with growing the 90-property rent roll up to 550.
These achievements culminated in her overseeing the operation of 3,000 rental properties and 35 staff, before she made the move to a leading West Australian real estate training group last year.
Commenting on her experiences over her 28-year career, Ms Kriwopischin said she enjoyed her training role but had realised she “really missed first-hand real estate action and being in a real estate office”.
“I saw what was happening with the expansion of the global RE/MAX brand in WA and knew I should be playing a part in that,” she said.
In addition to her property and business management training, Ms Kriwopischin has also dipped a toe into a niche market of property sales — that of 2.5-to-10-acre rural residential properties — a role that was born after her own personal move to an acreage property.
“Coming from a mainly property management background, I fell into sales after moving to acreage in the Moore River region 13 years ago,” she said. “It started when a neighbour asked if I would sell their property.”
Entering this sales market has resulted in 120 home sales, many on two or more occasions, and nearly 100 per cent of business initiated through word of mouth and referrals.
