Hi, My name is Nelita. I moved over here from New Zealand in 2006. After completing my grade 12 studies in 2013, I was weighing up my employment options and was trying to decide between Aviation and Real Estate, and when a position in property management became available I didn't hesitate at the chance. I live on the mainland but I come over on the barge to Russell everyday and I enjoy working on the island and meeting the tenants. I find property management a very interesting position and it keeps me on my toes. In my spare time I like to go to the beach, travelling and watching movies.

I migrated north to the Gold Coast of Queensland and a warmer weather from the South Coast of New South Wales in the year 2000. I lived between the Gold Coast and Russell Island for 5 years before making the decision that the Tranquil life on Russell Island was for me. I have been a full time resident on Russell Island for approximately 5 years. My working history has been in retail in one form or another, and on the island it has been in real estate. I have been lucky to land my dream job with the team at iapproved which enables me to live and work on the Island, what more could you ask for?
