As a result of the Novel Coronavirus we have adapted the way we do business and will continue to update as advice changes. We are currently open for business and operating as usual in the ‘new normal’.
Our first priority is to keep our team and our clients safe and to ensure we continue to provide peace of mind around valuations but with minimal contact and the highest safety measures during times of heightened concern. This means that our valuers and our clients must take extra care and be understanding and flexible to ensure the safety of all.
We are still able to carry out valuations with strict processes in place as per the Australian Property Institute and Queensland Health guidelines. In response to the current situation the rules around inspections have been relaxed which may allow us in some cases, to provide a valuation with an external inspection only. Please note that this is not the norm as inspections are usually carried out in-person and on-site.
Customer Service During COVID19 Pandemic
Firstly, we hope you and your loved one’s are navigating these unique times as best as possible.
What we’re doing
We want to keep you safe and we want to keep our team safe. Every possible measure available to us is being taken. Particularly during any lockdown you will find we can immediately implement stricter procedures and in some cases external inspections will be possible although this is definitely not the normal procedure and is only available under very limited circumstances so please ask.

Our team will not touch any household items.
Our team will wear mask and gloves as required.
We have equipped our valuers with 20L bottles of water and hand wash.
Before entering the property hands are cleaned.
