She also has 11 years of experience in local Strata industry having been licensee in charge of a Wollongong branch of a Sydney Strata Management company for eight years.
Born in Wollongong Hospital, Tanya is a genuine local.
Earning her Real Estate Diploma was just a formality though, as Tanya had a real passion for people and property from a young age.
While still studying for her diploma, she started in the late 1990s as a Property Manager. She quickly progressed into sales. Then in 2005, she went into partnership and purchased her own real estate franchise. After selling the franchise in 2008, she studied Property Law at university She was going to move into conveyancing and was interested in the aspects of property law related to purchase and sale.
Whilst she was still studying Tanya was offered a job as a Strata Management Trainee in Sydney. She took the position as she hadn’t yet dabbled in Strata Management. She loved it so much that she left her degree to obtain her Strata Managing Agents Licence, in addition to her existing Real Estate agents licence.
Back then, Tanya was working with a large Sydney Strata Management firm (Netstrata) who offered her the opportunity to open and establish their first branch outside Sydney. She jumped at the chance and founded (Netstrata) Wollongong in April 2011.
After eight years, she decided to leave (Netstrata) and has now opened Wollongong Strata. She is extremely proud to service the Strata community of Wollongong with the utmost expertise that Wollongong deserves.
