What differentiates us?

    1. We operate as a husband and wife team and pride ourselves on providing clients with a personalised, attention-to-detail service.
    2. We go out of our way to secure new tenants for our landlords. This includes showing properties after business hours (up until 8pm). We have found this strategy to be very successful in securing tenants that are unable to view properties on weekdays due to busy work lives. This can give your property an edge over the competition by finding someone to rent your property sooner and minimise the vacancy period.
    3. On top of our scheduled open for inspections, we will also attempt to arrange private inspections with each and every prospective tenant – the sooner they view the property, the sooner we can get a lease signed.
    4. We offer our clients the convenience of an online Owners Portal to view financials and other information such as routine inspection reports.
    5. We are experienced property managers and won’t get side tracked with sales because property management is all we do.
    6. Upgraded online marketing on RealEstate.com.au & Domain included as standard for new landlords.
    7. We include our in-house photography as standard.
    8. Competitive pricing while providing a high level of service.

Woolloongabba – Suburb Profile

Woolloongabba is a suburb of Brisbane, Australia. It is located 2 kilometres south-east of the CBD, and contains the Brisbane Cricket Ground (‘the Gabba’) and the Princess Alexandra Hospital. It is crossed by several major roads including the Pacific Motorway. The suburb was once home to a large tram depot.

Experts are divided regarding the Aboriginal meaning of the name, preferring either ‘whirling waters’ (woolloon and capemm) or ‘fight talk place’ (woolloon and gabba).

Because the area was low-lying and swampy, it was known as the One Mile Swamp. Although this name appears to be unofficial, it was in common use until the early 1890s.

The suburb has a significant link to the history of transport in Brisbane. Between 1884 and 1969, the main railway locomotive depot for lines south of the Brisbane River was beside Stanley St. It was reached via a line that ran beside Stanley St, then crossing it, Logan Road and Ipswich Road to the main line at Dutton Park. By the 1960s, services from the depot were causing significant delays to traffic as they crossed these three major roads.

The suburb was served by horse-drawn trams from 1885 to 1897, which were replaced by electric trams, which in turn ceased operation on 13 April 1969. All but one of Brisbane’s trolleybus routes traversed the suburb, from 1953 to 1969. The Woolloongabba Fiveways (the intersection of Stanley Street, Main Street, Logan Road and Ipswich Road) was a complex junction with tram and railway lines, and tram and trolleybus overhead. Trams were controlled by a signalman, who operated the points (or switches) from a signal cabin near the eastern side of the junction. Trains were escorted across the junction by a flagman. Curiously, Queensland Railways always referred to the branch line as the Wooloongabba Branch, spelt with only one ‘l’.

From 1927 until 1969, the largest of the Brisbane City Council’s tram depots was on Ipswich Road, opposite the Princess Alexandra Hospital. This tram depot was also used by the council’s buses.

In early 1942, the first Coca-Cola bottling plant in Australia was built in Woolloongabba at 36-39 Balaclava Street. It was originally designed to supply the demands of the newly arrived US military personnel, but later expanded production to the local Australian market.

In the 2011 census, the population of Woolloongabba was 4,789, 46.8% female and 53.2% male. The median age of the Woolloongabba population was 31 years, 6 years below the Australian median. 55% of people living in Woolloongabba were born in Australia, compared to the national average of 69.8%; the next most common countries of birth were New Zealand 3.2%, India 3.1%, England 2.8%, Korea, Republic of 2.6%, China 2.5%. 62.6% of people spoke only English at home; the next most common languages were 3.3% Mandarin, 2.8% Vietnamese, 2.5% Korean, 2.1% Cantonese, 1.2% Greek.
