When establishing my business back in 2014 my aim was then, and still today is simple; to devote the same level of care and attention to each property my business manages that I do to my own holiday home in order to achieve the best possible results for my clients by delivering exceptional service to my guests. To this end ellecor is boutique by design, our property portfolio is deliberately small which allows myself and my dedicated and knowledgeable team the time to provide
ellecor’s renowned 5 star service
every single day!
When my husband and I purchased our Sunshine Coast investment property back in 2014 we could only afford to pay the mortgage with the support of rental income. Our dilemma was that we wanted to use the house for our own family holidays so we decided to list it for short term holiday rental. Unhappy with the service offerings of local real estate agents and refusing to pay the quoted commission fees, some upwards of 28%, we decided I would manage the home myself.
With no idea where to start or just how much time I would invest over the coming months I worked long and hard to make our home visible against our competitors whilst building a strong client base. Within six months we were booked for the foreseeable future at close to 100% occupancy and from there, ellecor Holiday Home Management was born!
I was working for a real estate agency in Victoria at the time and my property management knowledge proved vitally important when establishing my new business. This combined with many years’ experience as a workplace trainer in the travel industry specialising in customer service and my double degree in Tourism/Business Management, were the essential requirements to create and grow a successful holiday home management business.
