Introducing Lisa Akeroyd.
Lisa is an experienced rental manager who is passionate about customer service. As the owner of Barossa Rental Specialists, her goal is to redefine the rental management experience for both investors and tenants.
Whyalla was the training ground for Lisa’s entry into real estate, where she quickly progressed from administration into property sales. Her sales success saw a move to the Barossa Valley at the age of 24 to become co-owner of Elders Real Estate located in Nuriootpa.
In addition to sales, Lisa and her team built a strong rental business over a ten-year period. She developed a reputation for her commitment to the industry, strong work ethic, attention to detail and fierce dedication to her clients.
After selling the business, a move interstate led to senior roles in national customer service and account management. A decade later, family, friends and lifestyle brought Lisa “home” to live in the Barossa. She is excited to be operating a local business specialising in rental management.
"My partner and I are investors and we have been tenants ourselves, as have
many of our family, friends and associates and rental management has always
been spoken about with mixed feelings. It seems the ‘normal’ way of managing
a rental property just isn’t working for some investors and tenants.
After reviewing people’s experiences, I knew there was a new way forward for
rental management in the Barossa Valley. I invite investors to contact me and
welcome the opportunity to partner with them in managing their rental needs."
Introducing Jodie Reimann.
Jodie joined the BRS team as Administration Coordinator and has more than 20 years’ experience in customer service. She has resided in the Barossa for 20 of those years. “There is so much that happens behind the scenes when managing a rental property and the paperwork is substantial,” said Jodie. “Attention to detail is so important and I am very happy that I can put my administrative skills to good use in the role.”
Jodie enjoys a busy pace and has a genuine interest in helping people. Her commitment has seen her role within BRS continue to expand as she takes on all aspects of the business under Lisa’s mentorship. She is currently undertaking further industry training that allows her to navigate the complexity of rental legislation and develop her skills as a rental specialist. “I enjoy building good working relationships with our landlords, tenants and tradespeople,” said Jodie.
Introducing Shari Rakic.
After many years working as a Senior Property Manager and Office Manager, Shari Rakic has joined the team at Barossa Rental Specialists in the newly created role of Business Manager.
