Kate Harris works closely with her partner, Jeremy Watson - they make the perfect team in and out of the office.
“I really enjoy the industry; no two days are the same. I particularly enjoy the business end - the numbers and organising side. This is why Jeremy and I work so well together, he’s amazing at the sales side and I organise in the background.”
Kate started her real estate career in 2012 as an office administrator. “Originally, it was a job-share and that was great because I could work in with the kids. I got my real estate licence in 2013. The job morphed over the last few years, full-time, part-time, which suited. Having my licence has been a great advantage as I can help out with every aspect and have a full understanding of the industry."
One thing Kate especially likes about the real estate business is the flexibility. "Between Jeremy and I, we have five children aged between 3 and 13, all girls. That's another massive thing about real estate, you can be a bit elastic with your hours. You can find time to go to school camps, hang out with the kids. It's all about balance."
Kate and Jeremy have now joined Jane and Carey Simonson at Ray White, Jeremy as an agent and Kate in administration.
"Jane and Carey are enthusiastic, excited about what they're doing. That's very contagious!"
