Kirk has been active in the property industry for over 35 years now, the vast majority of that has been in hands-on roles within the property management sector.
Over his time Kirk has run businesses for himself, property developers and estate agencies alike, using his vast knowledge and experience to the benefit of all. He has taught industry practice through the Real Estate Institute of Victoria, the TAFE system and national franchise brands.
Kirk knows the front line of property management, and after close to 30 years there, there isn’t a lot that he hasn’t covered – his first foray into the industry came as Australia was in the grips of the recession of the early 1990’s – out of a rent roll of 220 properties, both the delinquency rate and vacancy rate were well into double figures and it took a huge amount of work to turn this around – something which was recognised by the Real Estate Professionals group 2 years later when he won his first “Property Manager of the Year Award” with them.
He has since managed rental management firms from start-up level right through to close to 2000 properties under management, and a high number of the people who he has either managed directly or managed businesses for still rely on his wisdom and guidance as they further their own firms and careers.
His strong presence within the property management community has seen his advice being sought by industry leaders; he has held very senior roles within most of the major franchise groups in Melbourne and is regularly called on by the staff within those organisations for advice, guidance, and mentorship – areas where he has developed a reputation as a calm, professional and exceptionally knowledgeable leader and advisor.
