Vanessa practices exclusively in property and commercial law, having spent more than half of her career focusing on the management rights industry. She regularly acts for managers (both short term operators and permanent buildings) buying and selling management rights (including off the plan acquisitions), renewals and renewal strategies, variations and negotiation of new agreements and other body corporate related issues.
Vanessa’s uncompromising standards, ability to think outside the box, and desire to exceed expectations allow her to develop solutions to achieve the best results for her clients. As such, she has acted for hundreds of managers across Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Vanessa is on the panel of Quest approved solicitors and has a deep understanding of the intricacies that come with purchasing a franchised hotel. She regularly acts for managers purchasing and selling hotels and motels, both freehold and leasehold as well as those which are franchised.
Through her vast property experience, she acts for both landlords and tenants in commercial and retail leasing across Australia. Vanessa also assists real estate agents in growing their portfolios through acquiring rent rolls and sales agency business.
Vanessa has a passion for further learning and helping others. She was on the committee of her son’s non-for-profit childcare and was instrumental in them becoming an approved provider. Vanessa continues to act in the purchase and sales of childcare centres, given her intricate understanding and interest in this area.
