Jodi Ford has spent her entire career in property management. Over 35 years, she has worked her way up from receptionist to Property Manager to Property Management Director at Australia’s Major Independent of the Year, Coronis.
With a passion for delivering premium customer service and an irrefutable commitment to developing her team, Jodi has successfully grown Coronis’ property management portfolio from a mere 190 properties in Brisbane to more than 8000 across south east Queensland using a combination of organic growth and strategically planned and executed acquisitions.
Coronis’ portfolio is now one of the largest in Australia serviced by a team of more than 70 staff including property managers, BDM’s, trainers, accounts and the leadership team.
With no formal training, Jodi has navigated her way through the challenges of growing a significant business. She admits “it’s all about trying new things…some will be successful, and some will be monumental fails. You learn from both.”
The consistent recognition that the Coronis Property Management team has received as finalists for the REB Property Management Business of the Year Award is testament to Jodi’s success. As LPMA’s current Leader of the Year, Jodi attributes her success to choosing the right people and discovering their strengths. In return Jodi has many long-term staff who have remained loyal for many years.
Jodi’s loyalty, personality and business acumen have endeared her to the entire Coronis company, her landlords and tenants. She is renowned among all for going above and beyond, which is the mantra her team lives by.
