Tamara believes in a visionary approach to commercial property, where every ‘For Lease’ sign is an opportunity to meet each challenge of leasing – from initial lease transaction to successful transition to agency property management. Driven by the thrill of the deal & the determination to deliver win-win leasing solutions for both clients & agency, Tamara’s creative & integrity-based approach to commercial real estate has seen her career span 20-plus years, allowed her to grow a vast network of contacts, and provided her the opportunity to ‘seal the deal’ with high-profile national brands, including Coles, Country Road, Sportscraft, Peter Alexander, Husk, Bang & Olufsen, and Morrison.
