“We live in this world, so we may as well see it.” Along with a passion for travel, Yoshin Naidoo brings energy and positivity to his Accounts Administrator role at Viranda. Joining the team in late 2019, his background and skillset is diverse, with roles in travel and tourism, event management, insurance and marketing.
Yoshin discovered Viranda while trawling LinkedIn. With a curiosity about commercial property and a keenness to expand his financial literacy skills, he reached out to Viranda’s accounts team. The timing was right and Yoshin seized the opportunity to join a knowledgeable and growing business.
Today he likens himself to a young student in a new industry. He respects how Viranda provides a supportive environment to contribute and develop as an individual. He certainly didn’t foresee a global pandemic taking hold! But the team has been very grateful of Yoshin’s motivation and steady output of work despite a challenging new normal.
If he could give any advice to his younger self, it would be that property is about relationships. Providing assistance to the Asset Managers wherever possible, and dealing with accounts enquiries takes strong customer service and a ‘roll up your sleeves’ attitude. If he could change anything, he would have joined this exciting industry earlier.
As Yoshin’s understanding grows, he feels determined to include property acquisition in his own life goals. He is researching a few areas, but a commercial property in Orewa would be on the hit-list.
Congratulations on your role Yoshin – Viranda are right behind you.
