HomeGround Real Estate is a not-for-profit real estate agency providing a professional property management service to landlords and tenants while reinvesting any profits back into the community.
HomeGround is managed by well-known real estate principal Simone Curley who bring her broad experience of the real estate industry to this unique social enterprise. HomeGround Real Estate opened March 2014 in Melbourne as Victoria’s first non-profit real estate agency, founded on 20 years’ of property management experience.
In July 2015 it became a social enterprise of housing and homelessness non-profit Launch Housing. HomeGround Real Estate profits are invested into the community to help those without a home. The model has since expanded to other Australian states and territories, bringing with it the same opportunity for landlords to do good with their management fees while receiving premium property management services.
As housing affordability continues to decline, HomeGround Real Estate is committed to providing opportunities for people who are at risk of homelessness due to being priced out of the market. We believe that through innovation, partnerships and engagement with the wider community, homelessness can be ended.
Launch Housing is a Melbourne based, secular and independent community agency whose mission is to end homelessness.
