With family in the property industry and her very own passion for all things real estate, Kristen Chai has property in her blood and an intuitive understanding of real estate in her heart. Born into a family of developers with both commercial and residential interests, Kristen has been inspecting properties, assessing their worth and getting excited about their value from an early age.
"Most weekends of my childhood were spent at open-for-inspections" she says. "In our family, real estate was work AND play." So it was no surprise that after completing her Bachelor of Business at RMIT, Kristen joined the team at one of her area's hardest-working agencies. Committed to learning about the industry from the ground up after years of academic study, Kristen moved swiftly up the ranks and into managing her own portfolio ...propelled by a formidable work ethic.
So far, her career has been built around a natural skill for client service. "I believe that great service begins with good communication," she says. "My job is to help tenants and landlords, and my first priority is to create the perfect match of person and property." Kristen works tirelessly to add value to her landlords' investment and enhance her tenants' experience. Returning calls in almost immediate style, providing timely feedback and following through in pro-active style are all integral to her approach.
Splitting her out-of-work hours between Camberwell and the city, Kristen is always on the look-out for ways to indulge in her other great love - enjoying the city of Melbourne. Ever aware of what's happening around town, Kristen's 'fear of missing out' keeps her in touch with the latest exhibitions, shopping experiences and restaurants. Indeed, as a self-described foodie with a taste for experimental flavours, Kristen is almost as knowledgeable and passionate about food as she is about property!
