What differentiates us from other rental managers?

    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.

West End – Suburb Profile

West End is an inner-city suburb of southern Brisbane. At the 2016 Australian Census the suburb recorded a population of 9,474.

Just over 50% of the dwellings are standalone houses and 37% are higher density residential properties, including multi-storey blocks of apartments and units. Some houses are covered by historic preservation laws seeking to preserve the historical character e.g. tin roofing. Contrasting sharply with the historic homes are new buildings of contemporary designs. Prices for all types of properties have been increasing dramatically in recent decades. According to REIQ, the median unit/town-house price in West End for 2005 is $310,000, and the median house price is $490,500.

A flood flag map for West End can be found at the Brisbane City Council website.

In May 2012, it was announced that the South Brisbane Riverside Neighbourhood Plan would be resubmitted to allow the construction of 12 storey buildings, considerably higher than the previous seven storey limit. According to the Brisbane City Council’s Neighbourhood Planning chairwoman, Amanda Cooper, there are six sites located between Montague Road and the Brisbane River, south of Davies Park, which are at least one-hectare in area, a requirement for construction of the increased building heights.

The nature of some developments has led to community disquiet. The redevelopment of the Absoe site is a high-profile example.

In the 2011 census, West End had a population of 8,061 people; 50% male (4,029 males) and 50% female (4,032 females). Just over half (52.4%) of households were family households, 34.6% were single person households and 13.1% were group households.

The median age of the West End population was 35 years, 2 years below the Australian median. Children aged under 15 years made up 11.5% of the population and people aged 65 years and over made up 8.8% of the population.

The suburb has traditionally been home to Brisbane’s largest Greek community, with an estimated 75% of Brisbane’s Greek population living in West End by 1980. The most common ancestries in West End are English 20.6%, Australian 16.8%, Irish 10.1%, Scottish 8.0% and Greek 5.2%. Indigenous Australians make up 1.5% of the population of West End. For this reason, West End has often been cited as one of Brisbane’s most successful multicultural areas.

56.6% of people living in West End were born in Australia, compared to the national average of 69.8%. The other top responses for country of birth were England 4.5%, New Zealand 3.4%, Vietnam 2.7%, Greece 2.7% and India 1.4%. 66.4% of people spoke only English at home; the next most popular languages were Greek 5.9%, Vietnamese 3.3%, Mandarin 2.0%, Cantonese 1.4% and Spanish 1.1%.

The most common religious affiliation was “No Religion” (35.3%); the next most common responses were Catholic 16.5%, Anglican 8.1%, Eastern Orthodox 7.4% and Buddhism 5.2%.

In recent times, students and academics have moved into West End, taking advantage of the area’s proximity to the University of Queensland, Griffith University Southbank (including Queensland Conservatorium) and Nathan campuses and the QUT. West End’s inner city location has also attracted many young professionals to the area.

Along with the influx of students and young professionals, there has been a growing number of cafes, restaurants, and bars – many with an ethnic, vegetarian or organic emphasis. With these changes, West End is widely seen as Brisbane’s home for a younger “hipster” crowd.
