As a rental resident it’s very rare to find a real estate agent that is accommodating to their renters. Donna from PIRE has always been extremely helpful and prompt with her communication. She always handles maintenance requests quickly and I find that nothing is a bother for her. In contrast other agents just do not have the same level of care as Donna.
We could not talk more highly of Donna and the team at Property Initiatives Real Estate. They have been nothing short of approachable, efficient, and helpful in all our dealings with them. We have confidence that if issues come up in our house or if we have any questions that we will get a swift reply and thorough response. Thank you for making all our dealings with you so easy!”.
Seller of Acreage in Benloch
I was nervous to sell my first property, but Rick made the process as easy as possible. Using Property Initiatives Real Estate means that proceeds from the sale go towards building social housing through the Women’s Property Initiative, which is why I chose Rick instead of a local agent for the regional area. However, Rick ensured to regularly drive far out for inspections and showings despite being a city-based agent. Do yourself a favour and use Rick/Property Initiatives for your next sale!

We commend Rick for his professional way that he conducted the sale of our property in Dromana. He explained the sale process clearly and gave us sound advice about the preparation of our property for sale. We appreciated the fact that he ensured that our expectations were realistic. He conducted the auction professionally and the outcome was a very positive one for us.

I chose PIREA to sell my property because they were wonderful property managers, and I have worked with the Not-for-Profit that they support with their profits and know that their work is vital. Their profits help disadvantaged women and children escaping violence to live in affordable and safe housing.
The service and advice provided by agent Rick Massese lived up to my high expectations and I got a great price, in good time, for my property. I highly recommend PIREA to handle the sale of your property!
Testimonials: Property Management
WPI are a team with a force. I have been a landlord with WPI for over 4 years and they are nothing short of amazing when it comes to service and care they provide for the landlord and tenant. Always professional but what I love most, is they genuinely care for the community, that the outcome is always a positive one.
Property Initiatives has managed our rental property for five years. In that time we have had the pleasure of dealing with several staff members, all of whom (without exception) have been extremely professional – efficient, reliable, but above all just very nice people who are very nice to deal with. Many staff have gone above and beyond the normal role of a property manager to support us and our tenants, including assisting us with a rent-free arrangement recently. Of course, we also love knowing that our fees are supporting a cause we passionately believe in – helping women and children who are facing homelessness. It’s that ethos of helping and caring that seems to flow through the entire organisation. It’s a unique organisation that is providing a model of how to do things differently in our state.
PIRE has always gone above and beyond managing our two-unit building: not only tenant selection and liaison but also during coordination of substantial repairs and maintenance. Excellent communication and clean accounting support. Any agency can manage when things are ticking over but Property Initiatives know how to get through the inevitable challenges. We are so pleased we found PIRE.
PIRE took over management of our two rental properties in late 2018. We have been extremely satisfied with the service they have offered. They respond to tenant concerns and communicate with us promptly, address maintenance issues using skilled tradesman and seek to tackle issues before they escalate. We have also received excellent advice from them regarding maintenance and upgrades to our properties and their management of trades was most helpful. As one who is concerned about the lack of housing for women and children, we are pleased to work with a real estate agency where the agency’s profits are used to provide safe, permanent housing for women and children facing homelessness. We would be happy to recommend them to prospective landlords as a most professional agency.
The service provided by both Donna and Sariah at Property Initiatives Real Estate on the changeover of our tenancy was exceptional. They arranged and project managed works that needed to be done between our tenants leaving and the property being re-tenanted. They also arranged for the property to be re-tenanted. The required works were carried out promptly and the property re-tenanted shortly after completion of the works. They were amazing! They gave regular progress updates on both the works and the re-tenanting of the property. I cannot thank them enough for managing both processes so seamlessly.
