Real Estate Services


In 2012 the Practice introduced real estate as a service offering to clients.  Needless to say this action caused a stir among some local agents with the typical refrain being “what would accountants know about real estate?”.



The fact is we know quite a great deal. Our principals involved in establishing AltRE (Alternative Real Estate) have extensive experience in property, construction and development both on their own account and from advising our clients about property matters.

We have been involved in some iconic projects ranging from local property issues to interstate logistics depots, ‘A’ grade office complexes and ultra-lux tourism sites.

Our AltRE agency was developed from the ground up with transparency, technology and service as the key goals.  Clients choosing to list with us will find they can list and sell their property for the maximum achievable price from as little as $1,100 in marketing costs and fixed selling fees of around 1% – but what does this get you?  The following example is for a $1,000,000 home:


  • Quality picture signboard
  • Highlight listing (8x normal views) on for 30 days then feature listing
  • Standard listing on
  • Listing on next tier real estate portals – homehound, onthehouse, homesales, thehomepage
  • Listing on AltRE website
  • Email marketing to +1,100 active addresses and approximately 300 self managed super funds
  • Standard photography package
  • Brochures at open house
  • Open house program
  • Fixed selling fee – $9,900
  • Total selling costs $11,000 or 1.1%


How is this achievable? Because this is what it costs to list a property for sale and unlike traditional agencies we don’t seek to make a profit on listing your home, only from selling it. If your situation requires additional press marketing or auction costs, these will be passed on at invoiced cost.

Full pricing details are available from the AltRE website.

Our specialty is investment grade property, particularly those that may appeal to self managed superannuation trustees. We also welcome those listings where discretion or a ‘silent listing’ may be required.

Clients are also welcome to inquire about our property intelligence services if they may be considering a sale or purchase or simply need unbiased advice about their situation.
