Australia's Premium Specialist Property Managers

Contact-us img

Focus Property Management is Sydney's leading property management firm. Currently managing over a 1/4 billion dollars of residential real estate, most within 10km of the Sydney CBD, we're dedicated solely to the Sydney market. It's what we know best, and it's where we can deliver the best return on investment for our clients.

Established in 2005, and built on more than a decade of property management experience, we set out with a vision of creating something different for property investors, something unrivalled across the entire property management industry: personalised, proactive, specialist service. To this day, we remain committed to that vision; in fact, we even guarantee it.

 

As specialist property managers, we possess vast industry knowledge and years of proven property management experience. And because most of us are property investors ourselves, we know that the three most important things to anyone in property are cashflow, peace of mind and return on investment. To deliver these outcomes, we dedicate ourselves to proactive service and communication, to innovative ways of achieving client goals, and to the development of long term client relationships.

Not surprisingly, the great majority of our business comes from long-term clients and referrals. In fact, many of our clients have remained with us as they've expanded their investment from a single property to an entire portfolio. And we've supported them, wholeheartedly, every step of the way and we are proud to say "We do what we say"
