Bex Harris

Business Owner - Level 4 Qualified Property Manager

Rebecca or more commonly known as Bex is one of the owners of Propertyscouts Dunedin. Bex started her journey in 2015 starting up the Invercargill branch of Propertyscouts. As an investor herself she had a passion for the industry and seen a gap in the market to offer a premium Independent Property Management service.

Starting from the ground up the business grew quickly as a trusted name in the region. Her passion for investing gave her the ability to help investors grow their portfolios, and she was able to help them increase ROI and was able to offer knowledge of the area and expected yields to work to.

As an investor herself, she loves property management as it gives her the opportunity to help others grow and have success stories to share. Bex no longer has a portfolio to manage now focusing on the business itself to ensure the standards are kept. However her first hand knowledge of working as a property manager for 5 years and gaining her Level 4 Qualification in Property Management ensures the team has great support and she has the experience to assist with all areas of property management as needed.

Now living in Dunedin Bex is a cemented part of the team and enjoys getting out and meeting potential clients and taking some off the pressures from the property managers. They purchased the Dunedin franchise from Milton when he decided it was time to focus on the NZ Franchise as it became the trusted name in property management throughout New Zealand.

Shannon Gibbs

Property Manager

After joining Propertyscouts as a letting agent to help over the busy summertime, we decided we simply could not let Shannon leave. Her enthusiasm and natural skillset for Property Management had owners asking to have Shannon as their property manager, so we made sure we listened and created a permanent position within the team.

Shannon was drawn to property management as a career as she has a strong interest in property and the urge to support people in a positive way.

Her work history is based on customer service roles which is what gives her an edge when dealing with people, as she has a supportive can-do attitude. A loving mother to 3 children has also meant she has fantastic negotiation and problem-solving skills, which helps her deal with the daily ever-changing challenges that the role delivers.

With her unique positive personality, Shannon is an asset to the Propertyscouts family.
