How Living Here South Yarra Will Revolutionise Property Management
A specialty business totally dedicated to property management, Living Here Premium Property Management South Yarra, is set to raise the bar on service levels offered to property investors and tenants in inner Melbourne. The office’s opening at Shop 7, 177 Toorak Road South Yarra from September 14th, is the national Living Here brand’s first foray into the Victorian marketplace.
Bringing plenty of property clout, Living Here Premium Property Management South Yarra is led by Errol Stewart, Spiro Vallos and backed by the McMullin Group. Mr Stewart, an Associate (ASA) CPA member with a 40-year real estate career, has previously owned two successful offices with a leading national real estate group and managed a motel brokerage in South Yarra. Mr Vallos is a director of McMullin Group, a well-credentialed Melbourne property development firm with a history extending back to 1975. “Because property management is the number one focus and priority of our business, clients are assured of engaging with a team that’s highly skilled and really passionate about what they do,” Mr Stewart says.
“We see a niche in the market for a boutique property management business to provide a premium level of service to landlords and to assist customers to create wealth through property management,” he says. “While the often traditional real estate model comprises 80 per cent sales and 20 per cent property management, our service model is 100 per cent geared to achieving the best results in property management for both landlords and tenants.”
In choosing the prime office location, “South Yarra has been a consistently stable market for investment structure and along with neighbouring Prahran, Toorak and Richmond – it’s the heart of Melbourne residential investment,” Mr Stewart says. “It’s a business, lifestyle, shopping, hospitality and residential hub, with excellent public transport and a high Walk Score of 92  – all attributes attractive to tenants.”
Chiara Harrington, a landlord advocate and BDM within the team says, in addition to ensuring that rent is paid on time, that maintenance is attended to and that tenants are maintaining the property in accordance with legislation, “our philosophy is to provide investors and tenants with an enjoyable experience.” An exciting fresh brand with solid foundations, the Living Here Premium Property Management South Yarra team comprises accountants, developers and experienced property managers. So too, Living Here Group chairman Peter Camphin and general manager Michelle Delaney add decades of industry knowledge and experience. “That’s an enormous pot to draw from,” says Mr Stewart. “From development of the best people, systems, policies, procedures, training and technology – it means that everything we do, has clients top of mind.”
“Living Here has invested heavily in training, innovative technology and marketing – it’s a thoroughly researched platform available to business owners to help their clients and customers create wealth,” explains Ms Delaney. “We understand that peace of mind for our business owners and most importantly their clients is second to none – it’s the support of our know-how, expertise and people that helps to make this a reality,” Ms Delaney says.
“If you have the right people surrounding you, offering the right advice and working for you, your investment, you should see opportunities to increase your portfolio and ultimately your wealth,” she says. Case in point is the Living Here Premium Property Management South Yarra team. Mr Camphin says, “Our vision is creating a brand and providing value across the entire property portfolio cycle, we proudly stand behind our values and those of our business owners.”
