Rose Patterson joined the real estate industry 30 years ago as a junior cadet at Morley's First National Real Estate in Elwood. She developed a real enthusiasm and passion for the industry, which lead her to join the TBM team as a portfolio manager. During her eight years of employment there, she initially managed a varied residential portfolio, but later concentrated exclusively on management of commercial and industrial properties.
Later, Rose joined the City of Port Phillip's Valuation and Property Management Department, where unique tenancies along the foreshore such as Stokehouse, Donovans, Luna Park, Vineyard, Palace and Palais were part of Council s portfolio of properties, as well as residential tenancies in the precinct.
