Simone Hochheimer
Executive Assistant
Although Simone is now both a successful property investor and a highly valued Assistant Accountant, her early passions were found in food and nutrition and it was this intention that saw Simone embark on Consumer Science studies at RMIT in 2009.
However, a traineeship with Casello quickly diverted Simones' career into the property sector and the rest, as they say, is history!

Simone commenced her journey as the first-face of the organization, learning from the ground up the importance of well-structured and stringently followed administration procedures. Simone thrived and very quickly found herself growing with the company, becoming involved in all areas within the finance and administration department. As CasConstruct and CasUrban were created so came the need for Simones experience to be drawn on and after completing a Certificate in Finance (Accounting), Simone became the groups Administration Manager.

Soon CasProperty aligned with One World Group and Simone was again handpicked to become the group Assistant Accountant. Today she shares her time and knowledge between the finance and property management divisions of both organizations.

It is Simone's incredible ability to adapt that has seen her thrive as a vital member of the CasProperty and One World Group family, and her drive has seen her build her personal property portfolio within the groups' high-end townhouse developments.
