PM Reach

A conference for the property management industry

The Island Gold Coast | 1st & 2nd May 2024

PM Reach is all about you. Your mindset, your wellness and your resilience. PM Reach is a retreat far away from work with content designed to empower and invigorate with speakers, stories and information relevant to your Property Management life.
People who say they love what they do have the right mindset. Be those people. With the right mindset, you are happy, more efficient and more productive at work and at home. If you’ve had the right mindset, it’s easy to get it back and if want to get the right mindset, PM Reach is for you.
“Wellness” more than ever means body and mind. And a healthy mind will often manifest a heathy body. Learn from the success of others in the industry and improve your mental wellness as they have done before you.
Property management work and resilience go hand-in-hand, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. In fact, it’s hard to be resilient all the time. The PM Reach speakers know all about resilience and rising above difficult times and situations and they want to share their stories with you.

The Speakers

They all have a story to tell. Stories about success, mistakes, good times and hard times. Stories to make you think about yourself. And stories to help you improve.

Jodie Stainton

With a career spanning 22 years, I am privileged to lead Harcourts Solutions property management division; an award winning, privately-owned company with 3 locations across Brisbane and a growing portfolio of over 2200 properties.

My role is to ensure Harcourts Solutions is the chosen workplace for the best property management professionals in Australia. I know that happy, challenged, trained and supported property managers provide outstanding property management services to our owners and tenants and their broader communities.

What I’ve learned over the past 22 years is that just like there are differences between the best and worst doctors, there are differences between the best and worst property managers. Our property managers remain at the forefront through personalised training and great technology to make their lives easier so they have time to concentrate on their clients’ investing outcomes.

Previously, I have held state and national roles within Harcourts & Ray White, a national role within a successful prop tech company and I pioneered a national property management franchise. I’m passionate about customer service and the future viability of the industry and have regularly shared knowledge, speaking at major events across Australia and New Zealand. I’ve twice been awarded in the Top 50 Real Estate Influencer’s List by Elite Agent.

I love finding new ways to deal with old problems. I keep abreast of tech and customer service innovation across industries around the world which allows me to innovate within our industry and business. I’m all about relationships, continual learning, growth, helping women achieve success and property management. It’s a great day when all those things come together.
