Holiday Rental Department Manager
Simone’s entrepreneurial nature was unleashed in 2008 when she saw the potential of the holiday rental market on Phillip Island and decided to run her own. She started small, with one property which became very successful very quickly. Based on her results, she added another holiday rental property and then another and then another until she had built up a pool of seven successful holiday rentals on the island.
Simone joined the OBrien Judith Wright team in 2015, bringing with her a wealth of experience and proven success in the local holiday rental market. Simone runs our Holiday Rentals Department. Part of her role is working with the owners of local holiday properties to increase the occupancy rates and revenue over the holiday seasons.
Simone provides holiday rental appraisals and helps list properties into our traditional holiday rental department as well as our new ‘Home Stays’ solution – generating maximum return on investment.
Simone describes herself as friendly, hardworking and thorough, traits which come in handy when communicating with potential guests and managing the logistics of their holidays. She loves liaising with both owners and guests and takes great delight in matching one to the other, to ensure a splendid first experience on the island resulting in repeat stays year after year. Her hard work, helpful attitude and approachable manner makes Simone an easy choice for owners of holiday rentals when deciding who to trust with one of their most valuable assets.
In her spare time Simone enjoys spending time with her two beautiful daughters and getting together with friends for social gatherings. She also loves taking her family on holidays and experiencing new destinations regularly.
