Business Development Manager
Jacob’s passion for people, real estate and development led him to commence his Real Estate career in 2015 as an assistant property manager. Within months of commencing this role, he progressed on to managing his own rental portfolio, building his local knowledge in the Eastern and South-Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and developing experience in all aspects of property management.
Jacob was initially drawn to a career in real estate due to the diversity of the industry, its constantly changing and developing nature, and the ability to build a career that is reliant on the relationships that are built with colleagues, clients and the community. Business Development was of particular interest to Jacob as it is a role that has a large scope for developing creative strategies which ensure a unique and personal service to each client.
The key to Jacob’s success in his role is his ability to build trust with his clients quickly, to deliver a personalised service to a wide range of clients, local knowledge and his in-depth knowledge and understanding of relevant legislation and processes of the property management experience. He believes the key to enjoying his role is to bring a positive attitude, keep a healthy work-life balance, and to build and prioritise the right relationships in the role.
Outside of work, Jacob enjoys spending time with his family, and keeping up with the NBA, particularly the Minnesota Timberwolves.
