Stability and Innovation

You know us. PRD is Oatley’s longest-running and most reputable office. We have been on the clock tower corner since the early ’80s with only one ownership change when the retiring owner sold to his longest-serving employee, James Walters with his wife Lisa. You could not have continued to grow and prosper that long without a commitment to service, which in our industry, also means innovation.

Real Estate is at the forefront of technology usage and innovation. We continue to evolve and perfect our systems to meet consumers expectations as well as to reduce systems complexity for staff. It’s a fine balance of improvement and stability to ensure we provide exceptional service in a sustainable and rewarding workplace.

This means initially there will be someone by your side every day to help and guide you. Longer-term it gives us more flexibility to attend training or take holidays and continue to provide the best service without work piling up in your absence.
