Senior Property Manager
Highly experienced, broadly knowledgeable and endlessly approachable, Jody Virgona is one of the most well-credentialled, and welcoming, management professionals in the industry today. Starting out as a fresh-faced 18 year old, Jody’s real estate career moved swiftly from a small family concern, to one of Melbourne’s largest development groups, to a blue-chip Bayside multi-office property network. Decades after that early start, she continues to bring a fresh, enthusiastic and professional approach to the portfolios she manages.
This level of professionalism underlines everything Jody does. From start to finish, Jody works tirelessly to educate, inform and share her knowledge. As part of a systematised process, every landlord in Jody’s portfolio receives the same detailed introduction, covering the processes, the benefits, and the ways in which Jody can add value. It’s an introduction that showcases Jody’s immense knowledge…and instils real confidence in the clients who trust her with their major investment.
As an expert property manager, former renter, current owner and long-term investor herself, Jody find it easy see situations from all sides – whether it’s the challenges and benefits of investing, the rights and responsibilities of renting, or the value of expert management. As an insider on all sides, Jody knows how it feels to be responsible for financing a property investment. She understands how strongly tenants can feel about their home. And she brings the empathy and solutions that both sides need to ease their way.
As part of a large and close-knit Italian family, Jody sees the importance of property investment to the life of a family… and the rewards of investing in the local area. Living and working close to the properties she manages gives Jody unique insights into her portfolio. Whether it’s choosing a cake on Eaton Mall, indulging in retail therapy at Chadstone, or appreciating the proximity to the city via the M1 or rail, Jody understands exactly why her clients and tenants choose to invest and live here.
