Australia and New Zealand partner for The Property Finders, Chris Collett has a background in human resources and general management, in both the private and public sectors in New Zealand, and Queensland and Victoria in Australia.
A significant amount of her work has been with Council amalgamations in Queensland where she has lived and worked in different communities supporting them to implement change, and helping staff to survive changes at work. She relishes working with people, problems and possibilities, resolving difficulties and assisting people to move forward to successful conclusions.
Her passion for real estate developed when she became a relocation consultant, finding houses and the right schools for the staff of large corporates relocating internationally. Her frustration in dealing with real estate agents led her to study real estate.
Previous roles have included managing the annual Prime Ministers’ meetings for the Pacific Forum and being a Regional Manager for the Queensland Census and the New Zealand Electoral Commission. She has also worked for the Land Titles office in New Zealand.
Chris has an MBA and a Bachelor of Business degree.
