I enjoy interacting with students who come to Australia to study and work to help them to understand the Autralian culture and learn about their cultures. This has been an enriching experience to understand how much people can share and lean from each other. I enjoy helping and encouraging my tenants in the best way I can to meet their needs and make them feel comfortable and happy in a new country, particularly when they know no others at the start. I want them to enjoy, feel secure and have good experiences in Brisbane and make them feel welcome and want to come back again in the future. All past flatmates have left with a smile and happiness and this can be backed up by references.
I try to carefully choose tenants who will be a good fit to the house and other flatmates to make sure they can get on happily with each other. There is a good mix of different nationalities which helps the flatmates to learn about different cultures. They are very friendly and so far they have got on extremely well and lived like a family being considerate of others, helping and encouraging each other and some have made lasting friendships.
