Mel Cartey

Property Manager
Email: pm2@crawfordrealty.com.au

Originally from a small little green town in Victoria I packed up life and moved to a smaller little red town over 12 years ago. Since leaving Victoria I moved straight to Port Hedland, after a few years I moved down to the Mid West then back up tp the Pilbara then down to the Gold Fields then back to  the Pilbara again. For me the Pilbara is where I call home.
Through out my career I have done everything from HR Manager to Publications Co-Ordinator and everything in between. I found my passion in Real Estate many years ago.  I have working in Property Management, Strata Commercial and even a little bit of Sales. However my true passion in Property Management. Through out this time I have developed a extremely vast skill set in the management of tenancies and pride myself on my work ethic and the knowledge.
Every day in Property Management is different and it never goes to plan you have to be on your toes all the time.

  3. What’s the one thing you would change in the world? At this current time the world is a such a scary place with the corona virus. Since I can’t go back in time I would like to see all the countries work together to come up with a vaccine or a way to eliminate it all together.
