Vanessa Lake

Vanessa LakeProperty Manager

Vanessa has lived in East Gippsland for fourteen years including Paynesville, Bairnsdale and Newlands Arm. Well versed with the local community and investment property market Vanessa has a genuine passion for real estate and helping people.

With a combined 28 year background in Property Management, Business Management, Community Development and Mediation, Vanessa joined the King & Heath First National team in 2014 to oversee and manage the Paynesville, Eagle Point, Raymond Island and Newlands Arm property portfolio.

Based in the Paynesville office, Vanessa has become a valuable member of the team delivering the lowest vacancy and rent arrears rates the Paynesville portfolio has seen. Being a property investor and landlord herself Vanessa understands the need for effective and quality property management from the initial advertising and marketing of your property through to tenant screening and placement, routine inspections and maintenance.

Vanessa's property management style is open and effective communication, "my aim is to earn trust from my landlords, tenants, tradespeople and work colleagues. I can see situations from all angles; I am currently a landlord myself and have also been a tenant. I believe good property management is about treating both parties openly, fairly and with respect. I love helping people and will deliver peace of mind to both my landlords and tenants with a consistent quality service."

When Vanessa is not at work she can be found spending time with her family and friends, helping out the community (founder of the East Gippsland United Football Club); strumming a tune or two on the guitar and even singing a little song. "I like to try and keep the local window gazers in business."

If you are a landlord seeking a genuine and professional property manager to oversee your investment property(s) or, a tenant looking to move home whether it be short or long term you will be guaranteed peace of mind and service excellence from our Paynesville property manager Vanessa.
