Some may say real estate is in Katie’s blood having joined real estate following her father, Ian Knight, into the industry where he had pioneered the path of real estate in Toowoomba in the late ‘80s and opened the ninth regional RE/MAX office in Australia in August 1998. Ian was a dynamic leader and highly successful Sales Agent who led the RE/MAX team with great success and Katie took on the reigns in 2014 to allow for Ian’s retirement.
Katie has been recognised as a real estate leader in her own right and one of the best in property management in the country. She has been a top national producer in the real estate industry since 1999 and has collected numerous awards for excellence. Katie was named as the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) Residential Property Manager of the Year in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 & 2019 and was also awarded the REIA (national) Residential Property Manager of the Year in 2012. (Of note, the REIQ is no longer a member of REIA and is therefore no longer eligible to participate in the national awards). She has also collected numerous awards within the RE/MAX franchise nationally for her remarkable property management achievements including the RE/MAX Australia Property Manager of the Year on several occasions.
Since taking on the responsibility as Broker/Owner alongside Daniel Burrett, the RE/MAX Success team has continued to achieve outstanding results in both Sales & Property Management, with dominant leading market share across the Toowoomba region in both areas.
In 2019, Katie took on the position as the REIQ Toowoomba Zone Chair. As the Zone Chair, Katie fulfilled a vital role in the REIQ, representing the organisation at a local level and bringing the peak body to the community. Katie stepped down from this role in 2021 with the birth of her son, and Daniel Burrett now holds this position. Katie is also the President of the Property Asset Management Chapter of RE/MAX Australia and provides training and guidance to the members in the RE/MAX network across Australia & New Zealand. Katie is a consistent educator in the Queensland real estate industry and regularly provides key note speaking and training sessions for various organisations, including presenting sessions for 2 years in Las Vegas at the RE/MAX R4 Rally event, which hosts RE/MAX Agents from the 110+ counties around the world where the global brand features.
Katie and RE/MAX Success have been providing outstanding service in Toowoomba for over 24 years with an organically-grown Property Management portfolio in excess of 1,300 properties – largely through referrals from already satisfied clients, and they have gathered the most productive sales agents in the region to deliver outstanding results.
