How Emma found the right real estate agent in Melbourne
Choosing the right real estate agent to lease and manage your property is an important decision. Landlords generally invite multiple agents to inspect their property to give them a rent appraisal and provide them information about their services and fees.
For first-time landlord Emma, she was looking for an agency that were experts in their field; “trustworthiness and an organisation that understands the property leasing market were important factors when choosing an agent.”
Like many progressive Melburnians, Emma wanted to find a way to give back to the community and didn’t know it yet but she was looking for a real estate agency that was making a difference.
“The factor that made HomeGround stand out from the rest is their commitment to creating positive social change. Through all their profits feeding into Launch Housing, they are committed to ending homelessness. Simone and her team are passionate about property and caring for people. This creates a real ripple effect of positive actions. This is real estate with a new social responsibility.”
This is a sentiment we are hearing again and again from landlords in and around Melbourne. Particularly with the enormous social and economic impact caused by COVID-19, people want to pull together to support the community around them and help people who are struggling to meet their basic needs like shelter and food essentials.
At HomeGround Real Estate we are highly aware Melburnians need extra support at this challenging time, and as a premium property management service all our profits get invested back into the community. Our agents have decades of combined experience as real estate agents, and have now chosen to make a difference by working for a non-profit real estate agency.
For Emma, this was an important factor. She wanted to know that her fees would deliver a professional service and that the agent she hired would genuinely care for her tenants.
“HomeGround offers me the ease and efficiency of their professional property management team. Along with the knowledge that my tenant will be treated with care and decency, after all the property is their home. On a broader scale, the fees will go to support ending homelessness in Melbourne. It is my hope that HomeGround’s success will inspire more real estate agents to contribute more widely to their local communities.
