Founder and Director
Karinda was born into a financially challenged family and set about educating herself from a young age with the goal of achieving financial freedom; after many years of hard work and education she has gone on to build a $50M empire consisting of over 60 residential properties and many different company shareholdings. The director of four companies, shareholder of two others and the business manager for one more, Karinda is a serial entrepreneur. She has been recognised for her innovation, professionalism and commitment to supporting others over many years. This includes being named the Telstra Northern Territory Business Woman of the Year and her company being named the Housing Industry Association Australian Small Builder of the Year. Karinda created Abode Property Management as the size of her Investment Property portfolio grew to where it warranted having a dedicated full-time property manager. For her this was an opportunity to provide the level of service she had been looking for as a property investor – it is all about contented landlords and appreciated tenants.Karinda and her family love the Darwin lifestyle and enjoy living in the rural area. The whole family is heavily involved in a wide range of sports and particularly motor sports – anything with a motor appeals to the Gill boys!

Jodie is passionate about looking after our tenants and landlords and regularly goes above and beyond for them. Jodie is responsible for managing our zero-tolerance policy for rental arrears. If you are landlord you can be assured there will be minimal rental arrears. If you are a tenant Jodie will work with you to make sure you keep your rent payments up to date.
