Metro Property Management is one of the largest privately owned specialist Property Management companies in Melbourne, leasing and managing properties here, there & everywhere! We currently manage just over 2600 properties and our enthusiasm and dedication to Property Management allows us to service clients above and beyond expectations. It is also important to note that unlike real estate agencies we do not focus on selling property.
The reason this is important is that most real estate agents who manage property generate the majority of their office income from the sale of properties. Often as a result the Property Management service these companies provide, especially when it comes to sourcing a new tenant for your property is sub-standard. Have you ever felt like you don’t know what’s going on with your property? Perhaps you’ve had problems getting in touch with, or even getting answers from your Property Manager. It is likely your property is managed by a company whose focus is on sales and not Property Management and that is the Metro Property Management difference. In fact Metro was recently named a Finalist in the LPMA (Leading Property Management of Australia) Property Management Company of the year for 2012.
At MetroPM we are completely focused on making life as easy as possible for the property Owner. We remove the hassles and issues of renting out a property. We firmly believe that a property should not be regarded as simply a ‘source of rent’, but as a valuable and appreciating capital asset. No matter the location, size or style of your property or properties; MetroPM is able to secure the most suitable tenant, then lease and manage your investment whether it’s a house, townhouse, unit or apartment across metropolitan Melbourne.
We are very proud to say that our team can handle any situation irrespective of their job title. All of our team have the minimum industry qualification of an Agents Representative License and we are members of the REIV (Real Estate Institute of Victoria) and LPMA (Leading Property Managers of Australia).
