March 19, 2013 – Sydney-based property agency Crown Property Agency has this month welcomed to its portfolio its 200th apartment.

The fast-growing agency opened its doors in December 2011 and today boasts rental returns of up to 5.1 per cent on the purchase price and vacancy rates of almost zero.

Crown Property Agency’s Head of Property Management Stephen Ivanusa has more than a decade of experience in the industry, having worked in in commercial, industrial and residential property management since 2001.

Stephen’s hard-work and dedication combined with his in-depth knowledge of landlords’ legal rights and responsibilities, has earned him an excellent reputation among his clients.

A total of 200 landlords have now enlisted Crown Property Agency to manage their investment.

“When a new landlord comes on board they are genuinely impressed with our service and the rental returns achieved. They often tell me the return was beyond that which they initially thought possible,” Stephen said.

“We offer landlords peace of mind that they are getting the best service and rental returns possible.”

Landlord Mr Kim said he was thrilled with the service and rental return Crown Property Agency achieved for his property.

Mr Kim owns a one-bedroom plus study apartment at Top Ryde City Living.

“I have had numerous investment properties in the past . . . from experience it is a nerve wracking time arranging for obtaining loans, settlement and finding a suitable tenant to pay asking rent and move in as close to settlement as possible. To be honest I can be a hard task master but couldn’t be happier! Not only did I achieve the asking rent but was able to get the tenant to move in from settlement,” Mr Kim said.

Crown Property Agency exclusively manages apartments built by leading Sydney property developer Crown Group.

Initially managing apartments in Crown Group-developments, Sanctum at Rhodes and Top Ryde City Living, Crown Property Agency is now extending its offering to all Crown Group developments.

Stephen and his team actively seek rental enquiries for apartments within Crown Group developments and work to reduce vacancy rates to almost zero.

“Being able to focus our attention on Crown properties gives us an edge over other agencies. An investment property is often among an owner’s most valuable assets and appointing a property manager with specialist knowledge of the entire development gives the owner peace of mind,” Stephen said.

“We genuinely care about their apartment and help maintain its condition and value in the long-term.”

Crown Group was formed in 1996 and has successfully completed 11 projects in Sydney, with a further three under construction.

Crown Property Agency was borne from Crown Group’s desire to provide first-class, after sales service to buyers.

Crown Group CEO Iwan Sunito said after outstanding results within Top Ryde City Living and Sanctum at Rhodes, Crown Property Agency aims to engage with owners currently leasing their apartments within Crown Group’s past developments.

“We are confident the service offered by Crown Property Agency exceeds that of other agencies,” Mr Sunito said.

“We look forward to welcoming new landlords to Crown Property Agency.”

Crown Property Agency is located at Shop 3019, Top Ryde Shopping Centre Cnr Blaxland Road and Devlin streets and is open Monday – Saturday 9am – 5pm.
