Agency overview

A Property Expert By Your Side

Today's property environment is more complex than ever.

Domain & Co offer comprehensive property solutions for buyers, sellers and landlords. Our integrated team of accomplished professionals have extensive expertise. Every aspect of the process is managed strategically and collaboratively working towards your goals with an ongoing assessment of results.

Marketing Plan

The letting of your property is very serious business at Domain & Co. For an owner we understand that when a property is vacant it can be one of the most stressful times not knowing when the income will start coming in again.

Even if we are not based in your direct area tenants do not find properties through the agencies door any more - they go directly to the web site and we also find great tenants through our data base which is huge!

Domain & Co. will market your property with as much attention as sale agents do. Too often when searching the web we find rental adverts with no photos or just a front photo that your potential tenant can see on a drive by anyway. Old photos, blurry photos or photos just of a toilet are not going to help to capture your next tenant either!

The internet is the first place your tenant is going to see your home. It is important that you have great photos and a full description to capture their attention to want to view your property. We will always be with the potential tenant at each inspection (either private or open homes) and will NEVER give out a key for them to view by themselves. This way we can meet them and also make sure the property is looking its best when they first step in the door with the blinds open, lights on and heating or cooling as needed to make the inspection an enjoyable experience.

We guarantee to;

- Advertise your property with great photos and floor plan where available on
- Prepare a color brochure for tenants to take away with them to remember your property
- Conduct a minimum of 2 open homes per week on a vacant property
- Monitor every day the data base of people enquiring to inspect or who have inspected your property
- Discussions/Emails with you as the owner will occur at a minimum of three times a week when your property is vacant to keep you updated
- Work tirelessly until your new tenant is secured

We are happy to supply statistics from on how quickly we find great tenants for our landlords in comparison to the other properties listed on this site. You should ask all Property Managers you are receiving proposals from for the same.

The turn around time once a tenant has applied is a maximum of 24 hours to security but this will always depend on their reference checks. We have a very thorough process to ensure that we do not put a bad tenant into your property – we do not want to manage a bad tenant either!

The process does not stop when a tenant is secured – we will then complete the very thorough condition report and photos (starting at a minimum of 200 for a 1 bedroom apartment) will be supplied to you and your tenant. This stops any confusion as to what the property was like when people have forgotten at the end of the tenancy!

We also will complete a tailored Tenancy Agreement (all on line for ease), lodge the bond with the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority and a full induction with your tenant will be held prior to them collecting the keys.

All of your documentation will then be placed on line through your owners on line portal and smart phone app – see here for more info

Please note the fees quoted through Local Agent Finder are only an indication. For precise costs for your investment please ensure we have your email and phone contact to discuss this further.

We have several properties under management by Domain Property Advocates and have used this agency for over fours years after transferring from another agency. Melanie and her staff have kept us very up to date on the various properties with regard to maintenance, vacancies and other matters. Melanie has also acted as a buyers and sellers advocate when we have purchased and sold our rental properties, and I must compliment her on her wonderful negotiating skills in not only securing an excellent price on purchasing property, but ensuring a top price when selling. On one occasion, we agreed on a sales figure with a known purchaser, and by the time we received the paperwork, there was another offer of several thousand dollars more than what we had agreed to – fantastic effort. We would have no hesitation in recommending Melanie to any property owner or prospective property owner and, inspite of her fees being at the top of the usual range, the service received is exceptional and the bene

Your attention to details has been thorough. Your advice on a whole range of issues, including internal and external colour schemes, carpet, light fittings, door handles, window blinds, carpentry work, plumbing, and garden design have been spot on. Your project management was equally competent, with the project finishing on time and inside the detailed and well negotiated budget; and we were regularly updated with progress reports. The property was given a tremendous facelift, and leased again at a 45% higher rate with a minimal down time.

Once again, our heart felt gratitude to you.
