Leading property services firm Oliver Hume has appointed high performing sales agent Kara Jones as new General Manager of Queensland Corporate.
Ms Jones will oversee key house and land development sales while maintaining and building on her already extensive network of development contacts, while pinpointing new areas for development throughout Queensland.
After commencing her sales career in 2001, Ms. Jones has worked on various large-scale land sales projects across Queensland on both building and development sides.
Her most notable projects include Springfield Lakes where she was recognised as the top sales agent within the first three months of the project, and she has been heralded with spearheading southeast Queensland’s Yarrabilba development.
Ms Jones also holds the record at her previous network for the most land sales achieved as individual sales professional in Queensland.
Ms Jones will be based at Oliver Hume’s Gold Coast office, and said she was excited to be part of such a dynamic and high achieving organisation.
“Oliver Hume continues to lead with their innovative, high quality approach to sales and marketing.
“Their knowledge and expertise across the property landscape delivers a unique and unrivalled edge in project sales, and that’s something I wanted to be apart of,” she said.

“This appointment signals expansion for Oliver Hume in Queensland and we believe 2016 will be a landmark year in property. With Ms. Jones’ expertise and success in marketing and sales, we look forward to accelerating our growth and sales in Queensland under the Oliver Hume brand.”
