As an award-winning property manager at Wiseberry Heritage on the NSW Central Coast, Shaye Wallis has learnt how important it is to celebrate the wins and live in the moment.
What was your first job?
My first job was at McDonald’s, which taught me that everyone begins at the same starting line.
What has been the best thing to happen in your career?
I have been extremely fortunate to work with some amazing people and to have collected great mentors along the way. A highlight would be creating a winning culture within our team, proving amazing things are possible when everyone gets on the same page.
Where are you hoping you’ll be this time next year?
Our dynamic trio recently integrated into a larger team, so I’m looking forward to recreating the amazing year we had last year on a much larger scale.
What goals have you set for yourself this year?
To get out of my comfort zone. I recently saw a quote I really liked: “The most remarkable life moments are the ones that make you uncomfortable, the ones that get your heart racing and your palms sweating”. And to take the time to explore what I love.
If you could wave a wand and change one thing in the industry, what would it be?
Perception. I look forward to the day we are able to say with pride that we are real estate agents. I’m excited for further advancement on our pathway to professionalism.
What’s the best piece of the advice you’ve ever been given?
You may not be able to control all situations, but you can always control your reaction.
What’s the worst piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
What is the most important part of your day?
Morning – up early and active first thing sets the day in the right direction.
If you had to start from scratch in real estate tomorrow, what would be the first thing you did?
Training, training and more training. I would network with like-minded people who inspire me.
What do you like the most about your job?
Property management can be a tough gig, but there are many small victories to be celebrated and conquered every day. Solving some of the smallest problems can alleviate a big pressure point for someone.
What’s the next new skill you’re hoping to learn?
I’ve recently discovered the theory of The Third Space. This is a current focus for me: learning to show up, be present and live in the moment. After completing two great Transform programs last year, I’m looking forward to seeing what Elite Agent has on the cards for us this year.
