Kiera Cross

Marketing and Sales Administrator

Kiera Cross

Kiera Cross began her career in Real Estate while finishing her Journalism degree at the University of the Sunshine Coast back in 2011.

After working hard in both sales and property management learning the ropes, she moved into the world of news after graduating for 3 years before deciding that she was happier and enjoyed the real estate industry more, moving back to an administration role in 2014.

Since then, she has moved between all roles within real estate learning all facets of the business and upskilling from being a property manager, sales administrator, head of department to eventually office manager and payroll and accounts officer at her previous role before joining Code Property Group.

After her previous company sold Kiera discovered she was about to start her own little family and felt she needed the stability of a supportive work culture, so she decided to join us here at the Code Family.

“I found out I was pregnant with my first child in 2019 and the business I was working with had just sold and I was in a state of limbo deciding what I wanted to do,” Kiera said.

“I ended up speaking with Candice at Code Property Group about any roles that she may have that would suit someone that was about to be taking a large amount of time off work – I wasn’t very optimistic about my chances. But I was blown away by how supportive Candice and her team were. They welcomed me with open arms into a support role while I adjusted to the idea of becoming a mother and even had a new flexible role for me when I was ready to start working again in 2021.”

Kiera is now working as the office Marketing and Sales Administrator organising and carrying out online marketing, handling of in-house videography and editing as well as sales administration through her part time role while she maintains a healthy work life balance.

“It’s incredible that I am utilising skills that I obtained through my work in journalism as well as my administration skills in real estate while also still getting to spend time with my son,” Kiera said.

“The supportive culture here at Code and ability to be flexible with my hours is exactly what I needed and I am so much more comfortable returning to work after time with my son than I think I would have been anywhere else.”

Kiera is passionate about a great client experience and enjoys interacting and helping all clients and staff at Code Property Group with whatever they need while fulfilling her role.

“I have such a diverse range of knowledge from my experience in real estate and I’ve found no matter your job description at Code if you can help someone then you do because that’s the culture that you just want to be a part of!”

 "You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great"
