Prior to the launch of her own business, Stacey had 10 years in agency practice in regional Queensland, followed by a further six years in a corporate role as a best practice and policy manager in Brisbane, Queensland. Stacey managed 300 properties for a number of years with the assistance of Melissa Goody, and then progressed to Office Manager, winning the Ray White Office Manager of the Year Queensland award in 2000/2001. Stacey’s role included administering the trust account for the business with some 650 managements, managing over 10 staff, and managing new business for the company. The role also included being responsible for best practice, compliance, risk management and training of all staff in the Property Management Department.
In 2002 Stacey was offered a Property Management Corporate Role with Ray White Queensland based in Brisbane. This role involved working closely with Property Managers and Business Owners on Property Management Best Practice and Systems. The role also included supporting Property Managers and business owners with day to day practices and compliance.
In 2004, Stacey joined the Real Estate Institute of Queensland as an industry trainer. In 2005 the role changed to Best Practice and Compliance Advisor. The role involved authoring and editing the entire Institute’s training materials, training Real Estate Agents, Salespeople and Property Managers throughout Queensland, consulting with Government on required legislative changes affecting the industry and working closely with the Industry’s main Professional Indemnity Insurer and lawyers to the scheme.
In 2007 Stacey was promoted to Best Practice and Policy Manager of the Institute.
