She entered the real estate industry at age 16 by helping her mother with administrative duties. Kate’s mother taught her that genuine care is the key to success. Before starting university, she sailed around Australia for a year, and her adventure showed her that true responsibility is all about diligence, processes, and good communication. Kate earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a major in marketing, and in 2017, she became an agent.
