Our People

Paolo Di Russo – Licensee

I have been working in finance as Director of PDR Financial Solutions since 2003 and owe the longevity of my business chiefly to successful property investment for clients. As part of this focus I have been a licensed real estate agent throughout this time in order to actively seek out and transact on behalf of clients. I take great personal satisfaction from my role of sourcing, showing and purchasing viable investment properties for the financial benefit of my clients and consequently I now enjoy a vast network of real estate affiliates in South East Queensland. Additionally, over the years I have developed property in Gladstone, Toowoomba and South East Queensland and am adept with the financial and strategic challenges that modifying and maintaining a property can bring.

During this time I have also been the Licensee of PDR Property Management where it has been my primary goal to ensure that our existing clients’ properties are yielding the highest possible returns quickly and easily and that their asset is well cared for. I am here to assist you wherever possible in all aspects of managing your investment.

Melissa Brailey – Senior Property Manager

I have always had an affiliation with real estate. Earlier in my career I held the position as assistant property manager in 1997 with a real estate office in Robina working directly with the owner of the company. It is here were I learnt that I loved Real Estate and I continued to excel in my career.

After many years being involved with all aspects of the real estate industry, I ventured into training property managers the day to day operations of property management and trust accounting. I was introduced to the Management Rights industry in 2009, which I successfully ran and operated my own large residential complex on the Gold Coast for 5 years.

Two children later, and my passion and enthusiasm still radiant, I am now very happy to be working with our team at PDR Property Management overseeing the day to day operations of the business and it is my goal to keep improving our processes in order to ensure that every owner, tenant and associated business, experiences professional, personalized and intelligent care when dealing with us.

Carrie Turnbull – Assistant Property Manager

Originally growing up on the mid north coast I made my move to the Gold Coast 7 years ago and fell in love with the community here. I was introduced to Real Estate as a leasing consultant for a large real estate office at the northern end of the coast and progressed within the office to assistant property manager. My favourite part of the industry is helping people.

Being the first point of contact for our office, my bright bubbly personality, professionalism and welcoming smile makes dealing with me refreshing. I strive to be helpful, informative and dedicated to providing the best possible customer service, knowing how important client satisfaction is.

I have a natural ability to deal with the large range of tasks required within property management and I always go above and beyond to assist with any matter and understand that all tenants, owners and tradesmen are different. I look forward to providing the best possible customer service to you.
