Recognition for revolutionising the way in which everyday Australians invest in real estate.
Property market research firm and buyer’s agency, Propertyology, has been named as a Queensland finalist in the prestigious 2017 Telstra Business Awards.
Held annually, the awards showcase business high performers across all industries in Australia.
Propertyology Managing Director, Simon Pressley, said the company was very proud of the recognition and of the culture of excellence that the entire Propertyology team had actively created. The company’s success is as a result of having the courage to continually challenge the status quo, teamwork, integrity, innovation, and systems.
“Propertyology assists everyday Aussies who wish to avoid the aged-pension retirement trap. Our core business is to research property markets literally all over Australia and to negotiate the purchase of handpicked investment properties. We are trying to revolutionise how people invest using more comprehensive research and a structured process which enables everyday Aussies to take advantage of the wonderful opportunities all over this massive country,” Mr Pressley said.
Research conducted by Propertyology revealed that aged pensions cost Australia $45 billion last financial year and this annual cost is increasing by $36 million per month. Currently, there are more than 3.6 million Australians who are 65 years or older and a miserly 18 per cent of them were financially independent.
“Retirement lifestyle on an aged pension is incredibly modest. But it doesn’t need to be that way. With a positive attitude and some professional guidance, everyone can enjoy a better future lifestyle. Investing in residential property is a popular vehicle for that”.
“A majority of property investors confuse knowing their neighbourhood with knowing property markets. A completely different mindset to buying the family home is required when investing. The process for making all good decisions starts by reviewing 100 per cent of your choices. As property professionals, our choices are the 550 individual local government jurisdictions across Australia’s 8 states and territories, capital cities and regions”.
Propertyology’s business model enables everyday Australians to invest in locations where they don’t personally live. The company’s vision is to revolutionise the way people invest in Australian real estate.
“We commenced this business journey with the knowledge that we were entering in to unchartered territory. Ninety-five per cent of our clients don’t reside in our home city, yet we work with them every day. This wouldn’t be possible without technology,” said Mr Pressley.
“Technology plays an important role in helping us to gather good quality information, to overcome logistical challenges, to engage with our clients, and to protect our intellectual property. It also helps us to make better use of office space and to be a flexible employer.”
According to Australian Bureau of Statistics, there are 2,171,343 actively trading businesses in Australia. 84.3 per cent of businesses have 5 or less people.
The Queensland business winners will be announced at the Telstra Business Awards gala dinner on Friday 14 July at City Hall.
Propertyology would like to encourage all of their clients to join in the awards celebration. Everyone is invited to send in a short message of support to be displayed on the big-screen during the awards ceremony – it will bring a huge smile to the faces of the Propertyology team.
