Hi, I’m Mark Ashbridge the co-founder and Director of Pro Edge Realty On the Gold Coast. I’m also a property investor like you.

Why Pro Edge Exists

As a property investor, I was sick and tired of spending my time, energy and money chasing up my property manager for updates about my investment properties.

The poor service, lack of communication and everything else, drove me nuts!

So Stuart Brown and I started Pro Edge Realty to disrupt the industry and create a property management specialists service exclusively for discerning property investors.

After all, Stuart and I both own investment properties, have built investment properties and understand why most people buy an investment property in the first place!

What Pro Edge Isn’t

Pro Edge Rentals are not a real estate agency that ‘dabbles in’ property management either. We don’t sell houses and never want to!

We focus on you and getting you the best return on your investment property in all areas. Property Management is our specialist skill, and we do it exceptionally well, and becoming one of the fastest growing property management companies in the area.

When I’m not at Pro Edge Realty

You’ll find me playing a round of golf and making excuses for my poor gold shots, spending time on the Gold Coast’s beautiful beaches and pursuing my love and affection for British cars. That’s because I’m from the UK and worked as an accountant for Rolls Royce before moving to Australia 12 years ago.

I also have an enduring passion for going the extra mile to helping people personally and in business.

Of course, there is more to my story and the Pro Edge Rentals story than this which I'm happy to share with you further, so please contact me by calling me at Pro Edge Realty on 0412 652 947 or by emailing me here.

Thank you, and I look forward to talking to you soon

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a passion for people and investment property.

And a big part of that passion is I’m a property investor myself and understand some of the reasons why you use investment property as an investment strategy.

Another part of my passion is helping people with investment properties on the Gold Coast, Brisbane & South East Queensland succeed.

I do this by maximising your investment property returns and helping you achieve your goals and dreams whatever they may be.

Plus, as a seasoned property investor and a homeowner myself, I have demands and expectations on what I consider proactive management for my investment properties which our clients value and call on daily.

And this is one of the critical points of difference you’ll experience with Mark, the Pro Edge team, and me.

To the best of our knowledge, we are the only property management service for discerning property investors operated by property investors.

You see I believe that property management has traditionally been regarded as the poor second cousin of Real Estate Sales for far too long.

All to often property management is carried out by 18 to 25 year olds who do not own investments properties themselves, don’t have an understanding of managing investment properties or people and see their role only as a job with a paycheck!

One of the things we're proud of at Pro Edge is we hold a vested interest in the successful performance and return in all facets of managing your investment property.

This is because property management is the only service Pro Edge Realty provides and because of that, we do it exceptionally well.

Before My Pro Edge Realty Journey Began

Before starting Pro Edge Realty, I was involved in Real Estate for ten years, holding a full real estate agents license. In that time I worked with both some of the largest property management business in Queensland and boutique firms.

On a personal note, I’m married with one cat, six chooks and loving living the acreage lifestyle just out of Brisbane and I like to think that what I do in life positively affects others.

I hope this has given you some idea of why Pro Edge Rentals exists, what’s in it for you and why we are well known as ‘the property management specialists for discerning property investors.’

I look forward to being of service to you and encourage you to contact me with any questions you have regarding the successful management of your investment property on the Gold Coast, Brisbane or South East Queensland.

The phones always on and you can reach me on 0412 366 100.
I’m here to serve.

With thanks
Stuart Brown
