Just 12 months after first opening its doors, Key2 Realty has more than 130 properties across the Central Coast and Hunter regions on its books.
The social enterprise property management company has seen incredible growth and support in its first year of operation.
Key2 Realty provides expert real estate and property management services to residential landlords, but it is different to other property managers.
All profits go back to support programs such as education scholarships, learner driver courses and a program referred to as SHEW, which enables young people to participate equally in sport, health, exercise and wellbeing activities.
Manager and Licensee in Charge, Jonathan McCaig, said the support programs help vulnerable community members gain confidence and develop the skills needed to excel in life.
“We attended Pacific Link Housing’s Education Scholarship presentation in February, which is one of the programs Key2 supports,” McCaig said.
“It was inspiring to meet the school students and those embarking on tertiary studies in a range of fields, including marine biology, graphic design and psychology.”
McCaig said Key2 Realty had secured grant funding from local Bendigo Bank branches to have a video produced by the Bank of Goodwill, showcasing how social enterprise and landlords are helping vulnerable community members.
“I would encourage you to visit our website www.key2realty.com.au and watch the video,” he said.
McCaig said the company’s growth in such a short period of time was an “amazing achievement”, resulting from quality service, professionalism and support from the community.
“Although this number is impressive, there have been some obstacles along the way which required Key2 Realty to adapt,” he said.
“With the current Covid-19 pandemic, the team are now working remotely, but are still accessible to tenants and landlords through cloud based systems and an online portal.
“It is actually a good time for landlords to reassess their current property manager.
“We are able to sign up or transfer from other agents with ease, without the landlord even needing to leave their home.
“There is still so much more that can be done to improve the lives of those in need.
“We can’t wait to see what more can be achieved with the collective support of partners, landlords, local businesses and the wider community.”
