Welcome to the second edition of the Practitioner Specialist Spotlight. This month, learn more about QLD team member Morvanna Jones and hear her thoughts on the year ahead for e-Conveyancing.
How long have you been at PEXA and why did you join the team?
Morvanna: I have been at PEXA for three years! I joined because I have a conveyancing and training background and I could see the potential of e-Conveyancing – I wanted to be a part of it.
Which part of Queensland do you look after?
Morvanna: I am based in Far North Queensland.
What do you enjoy about working with members of the Queensland network?
Morvanna: I get a lot of love from my job, it’s amazing how many hugs and sharing of special moments that the relationships I have bring. One of the highlights is when a practitioner becomes proactive in using PEXA and shares their excitement about their completed settlement.
How would you describe the current outlook of e-Conveyancing in Queensland?
Morvanna: It’s very positive. I can see in FNQ particularly that practitioners are being very proactive by getting themselves registered and starting to transact. They are speaking with their peers and encouraging them to start using PEXA as well, so the pool keeps getting bigger. The goal to progress e-Conveyancing in Queensland in 2019 is well and truly on track.
How does e-Conveyancing benefit regional firms and is this helping drive growth?
Morvanna: There’s a lot of electronic settlements between FNQ, Brisbane and Gold Coast firms. This volume is increasing and making a massive difference to the growth of e-Conveyancing in Queensland. For example, a remote firm, Bolt Burchill Tranter – Mossman, uses PEXA, as having to drive for paper settlements is very time consuming and costly for them. It’s firms like this that are pushing for electronic settlements because it will allow them to grow their business.
