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.

Comprendé would not be the same without our happy and approachable colleague.

Nerissa has seen it all, so not much phases her. She’s our go-to for managing complicated situations, maintenance issues, tenancy issues and even ‘acts of God’ weather-wise. She handles everything with calm, pragmatism and humour. She has a “get stuck in” attitude, and the patience of a Saint.
Rebecca is an active property investor with a background of sales and customer service. She has always had a love of dealing with people, mutli-tasking and troubleshooting.

We snapped Jake up upon his return from a 1.5-year stint in the UK, where he worked for one of the biggest housing associations in London.

Jake holds his own in an office dominated by women and provides plenty of banter to keep us laughing and smiling. Jake loves building relationships with owners and tenants alike and is a real team player.

She loves seeing all the cool properties out there, and finding the perfect tenants for each one.
