Meet Kristy Molyneux, our Sales Associate at Stockland Retirement Living, Victoria. Kristy is primarily based at our Mernda Retirement Village in Melbourne’s north. However, you may bump into her at one of our many villages across Melbourne’s north and western suburbs, so make sure you say hi!
Why did you choose to work in retirement living?
I wanted to change my career path so when role in Retirement Living with Stockland became available I thought I would give it a go!
What are the differences between your previous roles and this one?
I have always worked in the banking and finance industry and I wanted a change, to do something that makes people happy.
What were your first impressions when you started at the village?
How beautiful the homes looked when driving into the village, it is a very well presented village. And how friendly the staff and residents are too! They have been amazing at making me feel so welcomed.
What does a normal day look like for you?
My days are never the same, there’s always something happening - from paperwork, discussing financials or taking guests on tours through the village, displays and clubhouse.
What is the best part of your role?
Seeing how happy and excited residents are when they have made the decision to move into our village. When they move in and say “This is the best decision we have ever made, why didn’t we do it 10 years ago?” is really rewarding.
Would you recommend retirement living to family and friends?
Yes of course I would! The social life and security residents have is fantastic, I’d love to see friends and family live in a secure and social environment.
Would you consider moving into a Stockland retirement village in the future?
Definitely! The security is great, the homes are beautiful, and residents are so friendly.
