As a young 24 year old, Marika embarked on the world of real estate with the thought of working hard enough to earn money to travel. Little did she know then that by the time of turning 30 in 2010 she would open Complete Real Estate now a known leader in real estate performance.
Real estate was never an industry that Marika would have thought she was ‘any good at’ but soon learned that her ability to listen and understand her clients and her strength to problem solve meant she quickly became a well-known agent who could be trusted.
Complete Real Estate is an agency that offers services across Sales and Property Management; however go beyond the surface customer service most commonly offered. “The key to the selling and to the management of real estate is in systems and processes” explains Marika. “Understanding market trends and keeping ahead of the game by delivering your clients the answers.”
With a maturity in years within the industry Marika can offer her clients valued advice on buying and selling, renting and investing. The Mount Gambier region being so diverse, as an agent you need to be able to offer services from residential, rural, commercial through to understanding property developments.
“Stripping it all back, we care about our clients. We work bloody hard to look after people and that’s not me pushing our own barrow that’s the honesty. I am always looking for what we can do better, how we can do better. And we feel really comfortable with where the company is positioned coming in to the 2017 market”.
When asked about work life balance “we now have Edison, he is 2 and Lottie now 6 (going on 16), work life balance is ensuring my family and friends are healthy and happy. I believe we all have our own life balance and for me right now, I love real estate. It’s what I live and breathe outside of my kids. I am happy when I am working as I have an opportunity to meet and help others and along with that am always learning.“
Marika welcomes any questions around real estate, business and family if she can help.
