Last week I met (virtually) with the Brisbane based software development start-up, Hutly (formerly known as Igloo) responsible for the development of a system called One Touch for RealWorks. They gave me a pre-launch preview of One Touch to discuss its suitability for our onsite managers. I was impressed and excited by what I saw, and am convinced this will rapidly become the industry standard for tenancy agreements. In an Australian first, this incredible system allows, at no cost, tenancy agreements to be issued and signed digitally. Once a lease agreement has been completed by the onsite manager in RealWorks, they send this to theRead More →

Your Small Business Borrower Rights Wow, how time flies. Would you believe it’s just over a year since the tabling of the Final Report of the Banking Royal Commission (it’s got a way longer official name, but you know what I’m talking about). I’m sure you would all agree that we are certainly enjoying the positive outcomes of the millions spent with fast and effective credit processes, improved banking industry culture and transparency and a customer interest first approach… or maybe not. In any event the circus that was the royal commission did divert attention from an earlier report that, for business borrowers, has farRead More →

One of ResortBrokers best performing agents has made a move from her previous patch in far North Queensland to set up as a management rights specialist on the Sunshine Coast. In the three years she’s been with ResortBrokers in the far north, Chenoa has racked up an impressive $28 million in sales from 19 deals and is now looking to continue that success in her new zone.

I sit on a BC Committee for a complex in Teneriffe that has 97 lots in the building. Each lot has underground car spaces that are on-title (ie: Not common property). The car spaces are in a secure parking garage, but they are open-plan (not individually enclosed). Over the years the committee has struggled significantly to keep parking garage clean of refuse and debris that lot owners and their tenants bring into their car space and store there. Everything from old couches, cardboard boxes, tool chests to rusting car bodies is being housed in various car spaces and making a real mess of the complex.Read More →

Yes – that’s right.  Chris Irons is starting with us, as reported in the Courier Mail. As the Commissioner for Body Corporate and Community Management for the past five years, Chris has been at the centre of the strata industry in Queensland. Every major issue at the core of strata in Queensland has been across his desk. His move to join Hynes Legal has been gestating for some time because it is a serious step for all concerned. It is not something that has been undertaken without a lot of planning and thought.  The community around strata (and in that we include everyone from lot owners, committees, strata managers andRead More →

RealEstate.com.au (REA) recently unveiled a new feature aimed to improve the user experience for prospective tenants. It’s called the HIDE feature, and it’s available on their live portal right now, I’m bringing it up because it has the potential to impact how we go about marketing rentals. The feedback REA received from prospective tenants was they were sick and tired of seeing the same listings over and over again, every time they did a rental search. REA’s rather novel solution, was to create a feature where if ANY listing started to annoy a tenant, they can simply click HIDE and *poof* the listing vanishes fromRead More →

Dear Nick,I posted a listing last week and I can’t find it when I search for it on RealEstate.com.au! Why is it not on there?!Signed,Every Onsite Manager. This is an email I receive several times a day. It happens so often I decided to write an article about it. Firstly, it always pays to provide the LISTING ID for specific issues. It is the number shown on every listing and it will start with a 39xxxx (sometimes 38xxxxx if it’s an older one). This listing ID is like a serial number for your listing. It is unique to every single listing. You can have 200Read More →
