Our specialist areas

We get the complexities of development projects. They vary in size, risk, profitability and effort. Each comes with its unique challenges and opportunities. On top of all of that, there are different requirements and skillsets needed for each stage of the process. And each stage will impact the others, so having the right team on the project at every stage is essential to get the best possible return on your investment.

Project Management

We have a strong understanding of the development process and planning requirements. Plus our consultant connections and intimate understanding of the market means we can seamlessly manage any and every aspect of a project pivoting as we need to get the best possible outcome.

Data management

We get the importance of data. We analyse data for accuracy, compliance, and to extract valuable insights from. We use the insights to determine highly rentable property designs in order to achieve 100% occupancy as quickly as possible in all markets. We utilise the real time data updates aligned with operational processes to trigger educational tenant communications at key points of the renting journey, which enables at-scale management and tenant satisfaction.

Leasing team

We have implemented our 100% occupancy strategy across several multi-unit developments, with 160 apartments going to market at development completion. We integrate mass but personalised communications, strategic partner relationships and set up development specific websites that allow us to lease hundreds of properties out in a short timeframe only utilising a few apartments types and minimal portal listings.

Property investor market insights

Our partnership with property investment experts - Performance Property Advisory, means we get access to the most up-to-date predictive data on investing in the Canberra market, which we can then exclusively share with our clients. Plus our property management team and close relationships with high level strata experts allows us to see the investor market holistically and pick up on trends as they happen.

Property development technology

We use a unique combination of property development and property management software to manage data, processes, transactions, and relationships to suit your specific project. With the appropriate tech stack in place, we’ll centrally manage contracts, payments, inspections, maintenance  and communications.

Asset management team

Unlike traditional property management models, our approach strongly focusses on maximising returns, not just ticking boxes. Our team of highly trained asset managers know legislative requirements inside out, and are able to perform regular investment property health checks and develop strategies to meet annual returns goals. Their regular audits allow them to develop proactive and preventative maintenance plans and they implement these by teaming up with some of Canberra’s most reliable and affordable trades to ensure properties remain as profitable as possible.

Client concierge team

Our centralised operations and admin team manage all of the repetitive parts of the rental process that can be overlooked, or just not done effectively in a traditional model. The team makes sure that every move we make that affects the tenant is communicated clearly and they have all the info and tools at their fingertips to help them along their journey. Our concierge team also coordinate onsite inspections and common area management.
