Listing your home and a rental property can seem like a daunting task, but the team here at Matthews Real Estate make it easy and stress-free. Finding out if your home is ready to lease and for what price are the essential first steps in making it a reality. Here’s our process for getting you started:

We visit the property

On our first visit, we give you a realistic appraisal for the rental value of the property we think the market would accept.


Leasing consultant

You meet with our leasing consultant, a member of our team dedicated to getting tenant applications and filling new rentals.


We fill out the required Form 6 with owner

Get your property ready

Our leasing consultant will make recommendations to get your property ‘ready for renters’ to make sure it meets all requirements by law.


Our professional inhouse photography team visit the property and capture it in the best light for your marketing campaign.

This includes videography.


We start to advertise your rental property, by writing the ad copy and posting your photos to our eight major listing portals.


We streamline the inspection process by using the ‘Inspect Real Estate’ software platform to organise inspections of your property and send notifications.

Open Homes and Applications

Online applications are handled through the 2Apply Application software, making it fast and efficient.

Application Checks

We process all of the applications, and perform the necessary checking to make sure that the lease is a good fit. We check financial and personal references.

Your Decision

We offer a selection of the most ‘right-fit’ applications for your consideration, few tenants.

Signing the Lease

The tenant comes into our office for a meeting, where we sign the lease and take them through any quirks of the property. In this meeting, we also have the tenant install our Bricks and Agent application.

Move In Day

The tenant pays the rental bond and then is given the keys on the move in day, and we’re finished.

Honest & Trustworthy

Russell is honest, trustworthy and importantly, knows the market.

Easy To Work With

Russell was an outstanding agent. He was professional, honest, easy to work with, and incredibly helpful both before and after we bought our house.

Russell has great knowledge of the area and was able to provide us with very useful information that helped up make our decision to buy. I would have no hesitation recommending Russell; if we ever sell we will definitely be using him.
