Receptionist/Secretary (Former Employee) – Melbourne – 4 February 2017
I love all things Real Estate and have for many years. Today I renovate as an investor, but when I was younger and working as a receptionist in this field, I loved to see the properties listed and when they sold, how much they were sold for. I was employed as Receptionist and bookkeeper in a few Real Estate offices, and handled the rentals then progressed to Sales Secretary looking after the "Trust Accounts" as well as the "Business Accounts". I did like this role and had a lot of responsibility to finalise end of month figures on time and also being a people person, I enjoyed the customer over the counter contact.
Dealing with the public on a regular basis in person and over the phone
GROUNDSMAN AT GRACELAND (Current Employee) – Welkom, Free State – 22 January 2017
Been a supervisor at a Estate is a very busy job ..handling queries and maintaining neatness and overall look of the Estate. I learned a lot..how to manage a group of workers and maintain order between them and how to plan my day even though a person can not stick to a routine due to the fact that anything can happen on the grounds so you always have to keep a eye out for anything that is out of place.Management is very good. The hardest part of my job is that i have to keep 70 house holds happy at any given time. the part that I enjoy of my job is I always have someone to speak to while i am walking in the estate checking up on all the workers duties and any problems they might find. It is a very social job if you can put it that way. So communication is a must.
Lettings Negotiator (Former Employee) – Twickenham – 22 August 2016
Within my time at Milestone & Collis estate agency it was a great opportunity see the competitive housing market that London has to offer. This made days very short as time was just consumed by the heavy work load. Heavy, yes, but rewarding when a deal was finally made. The difficulties involved with this industry is the never ending list of applicants that you need to call whilst making sure you keep landlords informed and aware of your progress in letting their property. However it's great to be able to explore and take applicants on viewings.
Maintenance Job,Routine and sometimes very challenging

Volunteer (Former Employee) – Lubbock, Texas – 7 October 2015
This is one of the hardest things I have ever done. Going into your father's home after he passed was sad indeed. However, I went in with full intentions of restoring the property that had become not livable. I did that very thing. I took every resource I had to see my efforts come to fruition. I had the very best help with the finest of contractors that came to my assistance from Houston. We all worked together and produced a wonderful home for a new family to enjoy. In the end, I will say that if my father was here, he would be very proud of me. It was an honor.
Accountant/Property Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – 2 September 2015
During my time at Top Properties, I have learned a lot about about the real estate industry. I thought I would just go into a public company to prepare or review their financial statement since I am an accountant, I was wrong. As I took on the role as a Accountant/Property Manager, I found a great compassion for the role as an Property Manager along with continuing to learn the field of accounting. I got the privilege to work with Yardi which i never done before. But the most important thing is that I found there is great opportunity in the real estate industry.
I am looking after all administrative function of the school which including finance, maintenance, HR etc. Also I am looking after the Staff Qtr and the some follow-up works of the bunglow of the owners.
The challenge of this job is that as a remote area its very difficult to get good staff. They does not come regularly. Even though the school is maintenance upto date.
Even we don't get qualified teachers, and also surrounding parents of not well education, hence its difficult them to handle.
Co-workers give good respect and I find always happy by teaching them new things.
Owner Personal Caretaker, Hardwick's Farm (Former Employee) – Clarksville, TN – 16 February 2013
I was on call for a private resident 24 hours a day, seven days a week. My duties included everything from A-Z; ranging from grocery shopping, house cleaning/painting/interior design, landscaping, personal time, medication administering, meal preparation, as well as making and confirming personal/business/physician appointments, providing transportation to and from, P.T. exercise, maintaining rehab treatment regiments/goals. I did not have a "management team", as I only reported to the resident. I had only one co-worker, with whom I rarely performed my duties during overlapping times; He and I did collaborate together on some landscape/carpentry projects. We had a perfectly balanced working relationship, with zero conflicts. The hardest aspect of my job was being able to balance my personal time with my client's 24 hour on-call needs...though it became much easier as I found it a natural occurrence very quickly. Above all else, the most enjoyable part of this job was seeing all of my client's hard work manifest itself in every goal that he acheived and his infinite gratitude for my presence and personal company in his life.
i had 100% job security, always a welcomed addition in his life, free meals, complete support of any personal accommodations that arose.
