Broadly experienced and Bayside-besotted Brooke Griffiths is a breath of fresh air for landlords and tenants alike. With a background in transport and logistics and an early career as a veterinary nurse, Brooke was drawn to work in real estate by a love of historic architecture and a genuine interest in humans. A committed property professional since 2013, Brooke worked first with a diverse portfolio in the inner-suburbs (encompassing everything from grand mansions, to humble workers' cottages, to high-density apartments) before settling in by the bay with the properties and people she loves the most.
A lover of period architecture with a strong appreciation for contemporary design, Brooke can be as passionate about the properties she manages as the people she meets. Adept at matching people to properties, Brooke is an expert in helping tenants find their perfect place …although she does admit to particularly enjoying finding an appreciative family for one of Sandringham's enticing Edwardians or Hampton's classic Californians,
Ultra-organised and always in control, Brooke's logistics' background informs her approach to every stage of the rental process. But that's not to say her working life is only about lists, appointments and deadlines. Brooke believes her biggest asset is her positivity - as she uses her sense of humour to build bonds with both tenants and landlords, prevent problems escalating and finding a win-win in most negotiations.
It's this ability to put a positive spin on every challenge that makes Brooke such an outstanding property manager. Always prepared to roll up her sleeves and get to work, Brooke's ordinary day might see her happily engaging in any number of roles – from cleaner, to counsellor, to lawyer! Her positive attitude is even borne out by Buxton's tendency to match the personality of its property managers to the properties they manage - Brooke believes she always gets the most fun properties!
