Just over a year after launching in the sunshine state, a property management agency has revealed its recent foray into the Sunshine Coast market.
:Different has announced its entrance into the region, with the new division having kicked things off in October with veteran Wayde Hildrew at the helm.
While operating out of the Brisbane CBD head office, Mr Hildrew said there are local property experts on the ground.
According to the veteran, the Sunshine Coast has always been a strong investment corridor and remains so with the continued investment into local infrastructure.
“With many Aussies now working from home, we have seen a strong demand from potential tenants looking for properties either closer to the beach or further inland with lots of acreage and expect to see this trend continue post-COVID,” he offered.
He said a launch into the region was a natural step for :Different, outlining that they “had the demand from our existing customers looking for someone to manage their Sunshine Coast properties, along with an experienced team familiar with the local property market”.
Acknowledging Queensland as “one of the fastest-moving property investment markets”, Mr Hildrew expects around 350 guests in the first year of local Sunshine Coast operations, after :Different received a similar uptake over the first 12 months when the brand launched in Brisbane.
“Queenslanders have embraced :Different,” he exclaimed.
Almost 25 per cent of the entire property management business’ portfolio now comes from Queensland, with Mr Hildrew crediting the agency’s fair and transparent service, its 24/7 real time information access and consistent approach to the service’s popularity.
