MARRON Real Estate is a boutique, family-owned agency, opening in 1971 as Marron & Associates.

Rhett Marron heads up the Nedlands office.

“My father started the business and my brother took over in 2009,” Mr Marron (pictured centre) said.

“I joined the company nine years ago after working in property and corporate law for a number of years.

“We’ve maintained our family-business atmosphere, keeping our team small and providing a personalised service that combines traditional selling techniques with a modern approach.”

Marron’s motto is “beyond just real estate agents” and as well as a friendly, professional real estate service, it also conducts property settlements.

“We are proud to be a one-stop shop and can help our clients with their property transactions from start to finish,” Mr Marron said.

Senior sales associate Adam Djordjevic (pictured right) and business development manager Louise Laraia (pictured left) complete the team at the Stirling Highway office.

“Adam is a very experienced agent and has been able to get outstanding results for his clients in bullish markets and through the GFC,” Mr Marron said.

“We work as a team and this means our clients have two agents dedicating themselves to getting an optimum result.

“Louise handles our property management division and she does an exceptional job.”

Mr Marron said while there seemed to be a negative perception of the property market, Nedlands was actually performing well, with low stock in both the rental and sales markets underpinning demand.

“We’re finding that rental vacancies are filling quickly and properties that become available lease at first inspection,” he said.

“Demand is high for lock-up-and-leave residences and while the rental price has fallen, properties are still leasing well across all price brackets.”

Properties were also selling in reasonable timeframes.

““Four-bedroom, two-bathroom homes are very much in demand. We had 40 groups through a Florence Road property over two weeks and received four offers; it almost feels like it is the boom time again,” Mr Marron said. n
