Anita Smith
Our rockstar navigator

Anita Smith

Chief Operating Officer & Real Estate Salesperson

Anita wanted to be a rock star before realising she was tone deaf. But the rock world’s loss is our gain, because to us Anita is a star. Yes that’s totally cheesy, but Anita guides and motivates our team of property managers, and we couldn’t do it without her. She is an expert at navigating the relationships with owners and with tenants, and manages contractors for property management with aplomb.
