Elite Women Real Estate Team
Property investment is interesting, challenging and exciting and those elements are what I wanted in a career. As there is no one single approach that is right for all, I listen to the individual wants and needs of clients and traverse the requirements of all parties. Combining real estate with community is my gift profession.
As a Chinese Australian I have the opportunity and skills to extend my knowledge and experience to a community that shares that Australian love of real estate. I credit my multi lingual capacity and understanding of various cultures for my real estate successes. My fluency in English and Mandarin as well several other Chinese dialects enables me to negotiate at a high level that is decidedly valued by the Chinese community. The skills I bring include contract negotiation, consumer protection legislation relating to real estate and the capacity to span the needs of my multicultural clients.
In my personal life I enjoy volunteering as I want to pay forward the privileges I enjoy. White Horse Council and Monash sponsor Hua Xin women with new migrants’ issues in Australia, homeless issues and domestic violence shelters and I use my skills to help in any way required. As a volunteer I also enjoy participating in the weekly activities like exercise, Chi Kong, Yuan Chi Dance, singing, contributing to the women health seminars, cooking classes and English classes. I also love to walk my small white fluffy dog Coco Chanel that I adore.
I am Kim Shotham Real Estate Sales Agent at Elite Women Real Estate and I am on Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.
The gap in real estate practice was clearly a lack of diversity. Mostly male and very traditional real estate practice was not appealing to every client. EWRE was created to address the need for a more democratic and collaborative real estate style greater with a greater sense of corporate social responsibility. Embracing an e-commerce platform, the new online business offers residential, commercial and rental services for a boundaryless property market. EWRE also wants to build the coveted village vibe that families love through collaboration that is 21st century.
The EWRE team is primarily women form diverse backgrounds and experiences. Whilst we would love men to come and join us the goal must remain – a broader offering for clients. We value both male and female perspectives when buying and selling property.
Clearly men and women place different values on property attributes. Recognising and delivering what all parties want is our major point of difference. When listing we provide insights to vendors that their buyers want and ensure those are the focus of out presentations. The EWRE team recognise buyer and seller anxieties and work tirelessly to reduce tensions and create calm transacting environments.
