Our Team


Hollie Grant

Administration Receptionist




Hollie is the first person you see when you make your way into our office. If her cheeky grin doesn’t brighten up your day, we don’t know what will!


Along with being our fantastic front-desk-go-to girl, Hollie also assists our tenant team wherever needed. You’ll probably catch her out on inspections when you come to view our properties.


Hollie originated from small-town Ingham and went to boarding school in Charters Towers.


She enjoys spending time with her mates outside of work, and signing  her lungs out in office (ESPECIALLY when requested not to!).


Hollie is a great asset to the team at Property Management Pirates, and we can’t wait to see where her enthusiasm takes her!




Courtney Honchin

Tenant Team


Courtney is our favourite ball of sunshine and rainbows, in charge of keeping the tenants in line.


Outside of work, Courtney loves to exercise at the gym, and never misses a morning yoga class (or a fresh cup of coffee). Courtney always has a smile on her face, and is the first to make new friends.

Born and bred in Townsville, Courtney is sweet as sugar, but with a spine of steel when it comes to rowdy tenants! Courtney spends her down time patting dogs (because who doesn’t love dogs) and watching Lord of the Rings (neeeerrrrd)!







Cameron MurchieCameron Murchie

Our Maintenance Doctor




Cam manages and organises all maintenance for our owners Townsville properties.  He  brings  handyman skills that are hard to find in most men in the modern day,  as well as some rugged good looks and a fine sense of humour.  His wife assures us all he is a cracking individual.


From a leaky tap to the garden tidy up and everything in between, Cam is THE MAN!












Coral Sea Property Management

Shaun Podbury



The founder and original Big Kahuna at Property Management Pirates, Australia’s Property Management Pirates.


In 1999, Shaun, a frustrated property investor himself, set out to create Australia first owner focused, truly Accountable property management company where every property was “Managed like we own it”.


In 2015, after 16 years of determined focus, the PM Pirates team was recognised as The Premier property management Company in Australia at the Leading Property Managers of Australia awards for excellence.


Having achieved his original goal, Shaun stepped back from most of the day to day operations in 2016, to take on a more advisory role, handing the reins over to the Pirates next generation of young leaders to continue the legacy the Pirates have created.


In addition to coaching & advising the current management team running Coral Sea (If the crew ever let him back  in the office) Shaun is an avid Mountain Biker and skier and enjoys multiple “Planning” trips to Japan each year.







Liz Defty

Owner Team


Liz is our Vacate Team Leader, she oversees cleaning teams, tradies and any other outside sources to ensure our properties are looking and feeling 110% for our tenants (and our owners!!).


Outside of work, Liz loooooooves to cook. Naturally all of us at the office are extremely fond of this trait, as she is know to break us tasty treats from time to time.


Best known as the “Mumma Bear” of our little family, Liz brings love and joy to everyone she interacts with at Property Management Pirates.


Just don’t misbehave around mum!






Queen of the Pirates


BHAG is our spiritual leader and ruler of all she surveys.


She makes sure the team stay true to our Pirate Code of Conduct and Manifesto and ensure those all important little things are done. She also makes sure we don’t take life too seriously and take time out to just chill and soak up the love.


BHAG is an active and friendly morning person, but she loves a good afternoon nap!
