Property Management


To maximise your commercial property investment, we recognise that, as managers, we partner with the owners, to reduce the chance of vacancies, and the tenants to ensure the building continually meets their needs.

Our list of services include:

Finding and Managing Good Tenants

With our excellent relationship with local leasing agents we can ensure urgent attention is given to the leasing of empty space in our managed properties.

Negotiation & Management of Leases

With our thorough knowledge of relevant market rates, once tenants have been found we will negotiate and then manage the most advantageous lease agreement for our clients.

Rent Collection & Rent Review Negotiation

We collect all rents into our audited trust account. Then as rent reviews come up we will handle all the negotiations with your tenants, obtaining your final approval before confirming any agreement.

Budgeting and Collection of OPEX

Avoid surprises for you and your tenants. We will identify and assess all operating expenses, develop an accurate budget, collect appropriate proportions from tenants and provide actual wash up accounts at the end of each financial period.

Building Compliance

We ensure your property fully complies with annual building warrant of fitness legislation.

Maintenance Inspections

We undertake regular maintenance inspections, reporting back any maintenance recommendations, supervising all contractors work, paying the bills and distributing the costs among the appropriate parties. We employ full time maintenance staff to assist with any issues.

To minimise your stress

We regularly review our portfolio's rental levels compared to what similar properties are being let for in the area to make sure you are getting the maximum rent for your investment.

We can advise you on the most appropriate improvements to the property that could generate the best returns. We will be checking rental payments regularly so as to get onto slow rental payers quickly, thus reducing loses that might otherwise be missed for a period.

Plus – No RENT – No FEE!
