The Tale of the Red Dog: Our Story

It all started at dinner. After Warren Kiddle met Michelle Hollemans at an event in 2017 during the midst of a passionate strata conversation, an idea sparked. Warren approached Michelle and asked about her focus on regional WA, and the issues they faced. Simply, he wanted to know if she was interested in bringing something new to rural and regional strata in WA. Warren & his wife then invited Michelle and her husband to dinner so that they could discuss this idea and see where they could take it. After many red wines and a handful of whiskies, the idea grew into a solid concept.

“We are not settling for a boring name” – insisted Michelle. The dynamic dinner party proceeded to create a fun list of random words that didn’t remotely relate to strata management. Michelle had heard of a legend in the U.S where a real estate agency, using the top two web search word for his town, created a unique business name and as an example to illustrate, Michelle threw in the idea ‘Red” and “Dog”.

Before you knew it, everyone was trying to out ‘woof’ the other. The Kiddles and Michelle’s husband ran away with the idea thinking it was the best thing since sliced bread. The next morning Warren gave Michelle a call and said, ‘let’s do it’ and that marked the birth of the loveable Red Dog. The business was immediately registered and in a matter of six months saw a portfolio growth from five to forty-two.

Red Dog Strata exists for rural and regional WA where Michelle and Warren endeavour to provide a higher level of service to these areas and beyond.

MEET THE TEAM

Meet Michelle Hollemans

Director | Level Three Accredited Strata Manager

Real estate and strata management are practically in Michelle’s veins. She has been in the game for 25 years, working in every role imaginable when you picture a real estate agency. From front reception to general manager and even a brief stint as a property manager – Michelle learnt all the fly on the wall secrets when it comes to the property universe. By 2013, she realised there was a massive gap in strata knowledge in the South West. Michelle decided it was time to focus solely on strata management and so, her career took a turn and her life saw a new path. In 2015, she started a strata management division for a local real estate agency, but felt that strata needed to be “out on its own” unencumbered by other real estate activities. In addition to this, Michelle felt there was something missing in the market, a certain x factor that looked after rural and regional WA in a way that they deserved. In 2017 Michelle resigned from her 9-5 to pursue her own adventure and met Warren… The rest as they say, was history.

Today, Michelle is the well-oiled machine that ensures every cog is turning at Red Dog Strata. She manages a group of hardworking professionals who ensure that each and every client is looked after with personalised care. When Michelle isn’t busy saving you from your strata woes, she is spending her weekends with her kids and incredibly supportive husband.
