Here's why to engage us to manage your rental properties...

1 Our fees are competitive - Our 7.5% + GST flat rate fee is the only fee you will pay. We offer further discount for multiple properties.
2 Whilst most companies will lock you into a 1 year contract - we do not. Just give us one month's notice to cancel.
3 We are an independent business – we don’t sell property and/or are not owned by real estate agents. Our trust accounts are independently audited annually.
4 Deal directly with the business owner rather than an employee of another property management company.
5 We are experienced, private landlords ourselves since 1994 and operating commercially since November 2013.
