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.

She also makes sure we don’t take life too seriously and take time out to chill and soak up the love. BHAG is an active and friendly morning person, but she loves a good afternoon nap!
