Bachelor of Property Economics and Development, 2010
Certified Practising Valuer AAPI Landmark White Hegney Maroochydore, Queensland
I look at and value a variety of properties from residential to rural, as well as some commercial. Since graduation I have attained Associate Membership of the Australian Property Institute Certified Practising Valuer (AAPI CPV) and gained registration with the Valuers Registration Board in Queensland.
How I got the job:
I approached the company with interest in a possible position. Landmark White Hegney are a national company with an established and well-regarded brand. They offer great future career opportunities. They came back to me with a position in their Maroochydore office.
What I enjoy most:
I enjoy interacting with clients and other property professionals. I meet many new people each day and I get to see every corner of the Sunshine Coast. I like being outdoors, seeing interesting properties, and I enjoy the day-to-day challenge of valuing different properties.
I wanted to become a professional in an industry. I had an interest in property valuation and a passion to succeed in it. My degree gave me the necessary skills and attitude to be able to undertake my work to a higher standard.
I wanted to remain on the Sunshine Coast, especially as this was where I intended to work. It offered me exactly what I was looking for in terms of study and lifestyle. At USC, I could get the education and preparation I needed for my career, without putting the life I had developed here on hold to move to Brisbane. USC gave me the foundation on which to build a solid career and gave me the right attitude to continued learning and professional development and a proactive work ethic that is valued in all my professional endeavours.
