Welcome to Astute Realty!
Today we thought we would introduce ourselves and share a little about who we are and our backgrounds.
In our previous life BK ( before kids)- I was a Sonographer/ Radiographer working in both Hospitals and the private system, specializing in obstetric Ultrasound, whilst Phil was a Pilot Instructor in the Defense Force teaching students to fly helicopters.
What does this have to do with Real Estate? Apart from wanting to move and raise our family on the coast, we found skills learned in the Medical Industry and the Defence Force were completely transferrable to Real estate. We could communicate, were accountable and proactive operators, paid attention to detail, and had already built and leased 4 Investments … so had real-life experience.
Phil decided to follow his passion for Property Investment, and after studying a Masters Of Business, Financial Planning and completing Real Estate studies as well as working in these industries, it became apparent that after clients spent their hard-earned cash on building or buying an Investment, there was a lack accountability, communication and care in the Property Management Industry.
More than twelve years ago, we had a vision — to provide a holistic approach to the management and care of investment properties for Landlords. Ensuring clients achieved the highest possible return with minimal vacancy and secured quality tenants, as well as proactively managing the asset to increase Capital Growth through a well-maintained Investment.
Following this formula has enabled Astute Clients to achieve some incredible results through both rental returns and the Sale of their Investments.
Licensee Phil Game
Phil is a licensed Real Estate Agent and Financial Planner who also holds a Masters of Business, a Financial Diploma, and an Engineering Degree. In his life before Real Estate, he spent 14 years as an Officer in the Australian Army flying Military helicopters. His time in the Military has taught him Loyalty, Camaraderie, Honesty, and Friendship. He applies these same attributes when dealing with his clients and prides himself on a professional and caring company where communication is the key.
Director Tammy Game
Tammy has been involved with Real Estate for the past 10 years, and with her husband Phil wanted to provide a Realty Service who’s focus is more than ‘Bricks and Mortar’, and instead, be part of, and involved with the Gold Coast Community. We not only work, live, and raise our children on the Northern Gold Coast- Hope Island, but, are very involved with the Community including presenting to Local School Year 12 students on how to survive being first-time tenants.We are also keen members of our local Surf Life Saving Club and Phil supported men’s health by donning a mo this Movember.
“Astute Realty provides a ‘complete’ service where clients can take comfort knowing that (as owners of the agency), both Phil and I always take a very ‘ hands-on approach to the management of our client’s valued investment properties and/or with the sale of their investment property or home.
