Alongside fellow Melburnians, the Crabtrees team have, and continue to work tirelessly to remain “open for business” within the covid-19 constrictions that have affected the state since March.

Resilience, innovation, and a true dedication to our clients have shone through our entire team as they support their Landlords and Tenants throughout the pandemic.

Today we learn how Property Manager Jade Whiting has adapted to this work environment having started with Crabtrees at the beginning of the year.

With an extensive residential real estate career in both sales & leasing and property management, Jade made the transition over to commercial real estate searching for new challenges and career growth.

Having joined the team at the start of February assisting our property managers with their portfolios, her skill set, work ethos and determination soon saw her being promoted to Property Manager with her own portfolio of clients, a challenge in which she has thrived, especially during covid-19.

“Understanding all the new aspects of commercial real estate alongside COVID-19 legislation including rent relief has meant a very hands-on approach to learning in which I excel.’

“Plus, the additional communication and negotiation required to support our clients recently has given me the opportunity to build strong relationships with each one of my Landlords and Tenants which I am truly grateful for.’

“Thankfully Crabtrees also have exceptional processes and procedures in place and along with open communication with the Property Management Department and Directors I have felt guided and supported throughout.”

Jade lives with her family in the Dandenong Ranges which has allowed her to enjoy scenic bush walks during lockdowns however she is very much looking forward to the time when she can work from the office full time and meet her Landlords and Tenants in person.
