Founded in 2009 when both working for a significant residential developer in Melbourne, Felicity and Zoe identified a niche in the residential property industry that was not being addressed – settlements, and they both recognised the crucial nature of back end delivery in off the plan sales. This component of the process was frequently overlooked yet vital to bringing real financial value to developments and to help ensure brand integrity and purchaser satisfaction.
From humbler beginnings as a simple partnership with boundless enthusiasm and energy, the duo worked hard to grow a respected and reputed business. Having fine-tuned their craft over 10 years and with offices in VIC, NSW and QLD, Property Settlement Solutions confidently offers a sophisticated, proven and highly effective full-service settlement package to both large and small residential developers.
Our vision is to set the benchmark for settlement services across the eastern seaboard of Australia. We will exceed our clients’ expectations over and over again. We will deliver value driven results to developers and help uphold their hard-earned brand reputation.
We will use our proven systems and practices, our experience and know-how to ensure highly satisfactory settlements whilst offering support and assistance to your purchasers.
At the heart of our business, we strive to deliver real value and great results to our developers. Our reputation is only as good as our last job so we focus on delivering the best results on each and every job.
We are service! We are continuously looking for ways to improve and innovate; to set a new standard in incredible service.
Respect & Integrity
We are honest, real and fair. Our goal is to create and develop long term relationships so we focus on being transparent about how we do things: with strong values and always doing the right thing.
We are accountable to each other and our clients. We work hard to deliver the best results under the right conditions.
We are more powerful working together than as individuals. We respect input and ideas from all parties and are inclusive in action.
