We’re the Real Estate Accounting Specialists

At Financial Controllers Real Estate, we measure our success by yours. It’s what drives us to deliver an exceptional and effective service to real estate agencies.

After many years of working exclusively with real estate businesses, we fully understand the challenges you face and what keeps Principals awake. Our aim is to provide you with the right accounting and financial expertise, at the right time and at a right price.

Besides specialising in this industry, what also makes us unique is that we’re pretty hands-on and involved people, who will roll up our sleeves up and get the job done for you.

Ultimately, our business model is about keeping you fully revenue focussed. From the moment your agency lists a property for sale to the point that income tax returns have to get signed;  every element of the accounting and financial requirements – whether the trust accounting, settlements, wages, bills, BAS, Superannuation, reporting the debit-credit, taxes and even planning your business cash flows… everything…becomes our problem.

All we need from you is to authorise payments on internet banking and sit down with us to discuss your business from time to time.

What’s also unique about us is that we don’t charge by the hour, like other accountants Nor do we carry the year-long price tag that comes with a full time employed Financial Controller.

We work under a modest fixed fee basis and spend whatever time is necessary to ensure your all aspects of accounting, tax compliance, trust accounting and financial management work soundly and you receive the very best from us in terms of ongoing support and advice.

Don’t just take our word for it…..
