With a wealth of experience in marinas, waterfront residential properties and tourism-related real estate, the team at Place Projects has successfully operated in various locations, ranging from the picturesque Gold Coast in the south to stunning Cairns in the north.

Notably, our expertise extends to both the Queensland mainland and the exclusive island marinas and resorts of Hamilton Island and Magnetic Island. 

It is important to note that selling and marketing lifestyle real estate demands a distinct set of knowledge, skills and experience compared to inner-city residential properties. Our team at Place possesses the specialised expertise required for handling lifestyle real estate transactions. We have a proven track record of excellent results in this area. 

We take pride in offering our consultancy services to developers looking to establish major tourism and marina-related projects. By deeply understanding the development process, we can provide invaluable guidance and support throughout the entire project journey. From market analysis and design to comprehending market demands during the due diligence and feasibility stages, we ensure that our clients receive clear advice and assistance. 

Our commitment to providing value to our clients extends throughout the planning and sales processes. Leveraging our extensive knowledge and experience, we work diligently to enhance the outcomes of each project we undertake. At Place Projects, we are dedicated to fostering success for our clients and delivering exceptional results.
