Houston Property Services Pty Ltd, trading as Houston Property Services, was formed to improve and expand the service delivery available to private property owners in the Real Estate industry.
All too often, the vital property management function is treated as less important than sales by many real estate principals, who add the task of management to the many duties carried by hard working junior personnel. This leads to a high turnover of staff.
At Houston Property Services, we believe both are of equal importance and in addition to this, we are currently expanding our expertise in order to offer Body Corporate services as well. We are excited about this new venture!
James Cathcart is the Principal and Working Director of the company. As well as Property Management, he also performs duties in office administration and provides sales support.
James is currently developing the Body Corporate Management service and is also currently obtaining a Diploma of Business (part time), which will be in addition to his other tertiary qualifications in media.
Patricia Cathcart after years of successful industry experience in both sales and property management, decided to establish her own company to enjoy and guarantee control of service delivery to her clients. Patricia began to developing her own property portfolio in 1974 and has an extensive background in all real estate matters.
During that time she has fulfilled the roles of tenant, landlord, seller, buyer, builder, client and agent in both commercial and residential property management and sales. In addition to her other tertiary qualifications, Patricia is currently completing post-graduate studies in law and economics (part time), which will further broaden the level of expertise she can offer clients.
Melissa Cathcart works part time in administration. She has extensive computer system experience and holds tertiary qualifications in both psychology and business. Combined with a sales and service background, Melissa’s role strengthens and enhances the company structure.
Situated in Ashgrove, the office is easily accessible. Our Rent Roll consists of houses of all types, and Strata apartments, both new and aged, across all Brisbane suburbs. Our commitment to excellent management ensures prompt and timely service to both property owners and tenants.
Our senior REIQ trained personnel employ a blend of both experience and good people skills. Every owner is provided with an ongoing preventative maintenance schedule to ensure properties are kept in an ideal marketing condition at all times. This allows the property to compete in all rental and sale markets with the cash flow monitored for minimum disruption.
When the owner is ready to return the property to the sale market, this strategy ensures that the expenditure is kept to a minimum and the capital gain is maximised.
Communication and full reporting to all owners on all matters ensures peace of mind and puts the pleasure back into owning property.
