A new name in property management hits the Kogarah market

Property investors in the Kogarah area will see a new name in property management as specialist brand, Living Here, opens its doors.

Living Here Kogarah, led by long-time local property management leader, Angelo Boliaris, is a business with the sole focus of enhancing the property management process for investors.

Angelo made the decision to join the Living Here brand after operating as an independent agency in the area since 1996.

“Being part of the Living Here brand allows me to provide a greater property management service to my clients and presents the opportunity to bring point of difference to the local market.

“In the past I have operated as an independent and I know the pressures of owning a business. Living Here offers support, resources and facilities that are simply not available elsewhere,” Angelo said.

With the Kogarah investment market gaining momentum, it was the opportune time to open the Living Here office.

“Rentals have really picked up over the past three months. The Kogarah property market is made of over 40 per cent rentals and we’ve seen 2014 kick-off with a bang.

“The start of the year has been so strong that we’re now seeing an understock in rental properties, making competition among tenants stronger and pushing rental prices up. We expect to see this movement continue and even strengthen as we move further into the year.

A local resident of the area, Angelo said the attraction to property investors lies in Kogarah’s infrastructure.

“There is a strong transport system into the City for commuters, and with two hospitals in the area, staff want to be living close to work because of the shift-work involved with hospitals,” Angelo explains.

The Living Here brand is powered by the largest real estate network in Australia, the Ray White Group. Chairman, Brian White, says its about specialisation in investment portfolios.

“I am pleased to announce the release of Living Here – a specialist property management service, powered by the Ray White Group. Offering the highest standards in property management has become one of our obsessions.

“The move to Living Here will allow Angelo to enhance his offering to investors as he and his team continue to receive full support and training, including all of the Group’s technology and product systems designed to continually improve our skill set,” Mr White said.

For Angelo, his ambition is clear: to offer the best service in the area.

“I want to grow my business and be known as the brand in the area that does things differently and offers a better way of property management,” Angelo concludes.
