Jody's career history spans her decades of experience in the real estate industry. Since her early days at an agency in the Riverina region, Jody has worked in various areas of real estate, including administration, training and management. These roles have provided an in-depth knowledge and a broad skill set that contributes towards Jody being a highly valued Client Relationship Specialist.
Jody is the longest-standing member of our team, having joined Taylors in December 2006. Her commitment to Taylors is evident in the long-term professional relationships Jody has developed and maintained with clients, tenants and tradespeople. She also loves the area, beaches and being out in the community to meet clients and tenants to discuss their property needs.
Jody is well established in the Eastern Suburbs and enjoys spending downtime with friends, animals and finding ways to improve her home. Jody is just as proactive as her role at Taylors. Not only does she make things happen, but she continues to look for ways to make a positive difference every day.
Jody's key to success in real estate is quite simple; she loves what she does. She also enjoys the vibrant team-oriented culture at Taylors and the sharing of knowledge on a daily basis.
Jody has seen a lot of positive growth and development within Taylors over the years, from a team of 3 property managers in 2006 to our current team of specialists focused solely on being the leading providers of property management services in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. Jody has consistently demonstrated exceptional behaviour and the delivery of a premier property management service. She conducts all business with the highest degree of honesty and fairness.
