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.

Tania Henderson

Senior Property Manager

With a background in customer service, sales, and property management, I bring a wealth of experience to my current role. Having worked in various customer service roles, I understand the importance of building strong relationships and delivering exceptional customer service.

I have found a passion for the industry as I enjoy the challenge of managing multiple properties and ensuring all are well maintained so all owners' and tenants' needs are met. I love working with people from all walks of life and that no two days are ever the same in this role.

Some of my strengths as a property manager are my attention to detail and the ability to identify issues before they become problems and have them quickly resolved. I am very organised and enjoy prioritising and managing multiple tasks.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my daughters, paddle boarding in the warmer months, exploring the outdoors, and doing a bit of DIY.

Kelly Kean

Property Manager

Kelly has worked at Propertyscouts Dunedin since 2014 starting working as property manager support. She knows the ins and outs from the admin to doing inspections and filling in for the property managers, so it was a natural progression to move into a Property Management Role.

Outside of work, Kelly is focused on her family and enjoys spending time with them on their lifestyle block, going for walks, and visiting the beach with her husband and two children.

Debbe Star

Debbe has worked for decades in administration and accounts payable and receivable. Her eye for detail and love of supporting the team and helping our clients brings a can-do attitude with a smile to boot.
