Meet Our Team

Beyond Property Management is a passionate and committed team of professional, service-driven Property Managers.  We are a mature and capable team who are passionate about best practice property management, with a constant focus on the end goal – happy clients.

The team is headed by Aaron and Heather Jopson, who have poured their hearts and souls into developing business systems with client service at the core of every process, every transaction, every situation.  As experienced property investors themselves, the core business philosophy is to understands the investor’s perspective. Treating clients, tenants, contractors with respect is paramount to this vision.

The team you read about here are what make Beyond Property Management a truly unique service provider in Brisbane property management. Why would you choose anyone else to manage your investment property?

Heather Jopson – Principal and Senior Property Manager

Heather Jopson has a long-standing career in Property Management, property investment and business ownership, stemming back to 2003 when at 26 she first invested in property and bought her first business.  Heather spent her ‘maternity leave’ years actively in the property market as a full-time property investor.  She has been involved in dozens of property transactions, from renovate-to-rent and renovate-to-sell, house relocations, joint ventures and vendor finance transactions.

A few years into this journey, other investors starting asking Heather to manage their properties for them, as they were so frustrated with the standard of care offered by the mainstream agencies. And before long, Heather had her own niche clientele and rent roll.

The launch of Beyond Property Management was based on a simple philosophy – to bridge the gap she recognised existed between what a property investor wants from their property manager, and what the mainstream property management industry provides.

Her philosophy to property management is that she will manage all properties as though they were her own. Being a property investor means her approach to management is entirely different to the norm. She understands the needs of investors, because she is one. She takes pride in her communication with both owners and tenants, and remains always focused on treating everyone with a high level of integrity and respect. She is a true property investment manager.

You would be hard-pressed to find another property manager with the industry experience Heather can offer, nor the passion and dedication she brings.

Aaron Jopson – Asset Management

Aaron Jopson brings a level of commercial experience from the big business corporate world that not many small businesses can leverage.  He is a business systems and process improvement specialist, with over thirteen years at management level in Commercial operations roles.

With much of this experience in the Infrastructure world, negotiating commercial construction contracts, Aaron ensures not just the internal systems of Beyond Property Management are best practice, but ensures our Contractors are compliant too.

His role managing our maintenance, routine inspections and trust accounting are perfect for Aaron, because compliance and risk management are ingrained in his psyche. He is a specialist in commercial risk, WHS, supplier performance and negotiation, and also has a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration.

He is also an experienced property investor, and having renovated more properties than he cares to remember, Aaron’s role ensures inspection reports are detailed and give a true picture of any potential maintenance concerns.  He understands investors want to know what is really happening at their investment property, not just a report on whether the tenants had made beds and done dishes.

Aaron’s strength is in the detail, and like the rest of the team, he is passionate about ensuring a consistently positive experience with Beyond Property Management.
