All of our Property Managers are Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) qualified and Office of Fair Trading (OFT) certified.
We also attend regular training sessions to ensure we are constantly up-to-date with the ever changing legislation.
We have local knowledge of the area, we are close to the properties and on hand if anything needs our urgent attention. By being locals ourselves we know many of the tenants which ensures our screening process can be more detailed..
