NBN will transform the way we live, work and play

The NBN is Australia's first national open access communications network that is being built to bring very high speed broadband and telephone services within the reach of all Australian homes and businesses within the next decade. The Central Coast is fortunate to have been included in NBN Co’s early rollout plans, meaning we are on the list to receive the service sooner than most other parts of the country.

So what’s all the fuss about? Put simply, the NBN will improve the way we connect with one another at home and in business. It will give us much faster, easier access to the rest of the online world and open up a range of opportunities in areas including education, business, entertainment and health.

NBN service is now available in Gosford and West Gosford and fibre optic cable construction work is well underway in areas extending from Kariong to Wyoming on the southern end of the Central Coast and from Berkeley Vale to The Entrance in the north.

NBN Co will contact residents once the rollout has been completed in their area. It is then up to the individual to contact their preferred telephone or Internet service provider to arrange to have the NBN installed.

LPMA Conference

Last month we attended the annual 2-day Leading Property Managers of Australia (LPMA) Conference at Jupiters Hotel and Casino on the Gold Coast.

The theme of this year’s conference was New Attitude = New Altitude. In line with this theme, we had the opportunity to listen to presentations delivered by international experts on a range of topics all designed to help us offer even better service to our clients.

As members of LPMA, we are part of an elite group of property managers in Australia.  Membership gives us access to exclusive training and resources for your benefit and that of all our clients.

Our office was a finalist in the Customer Service Award and our very own Laetitia Pearce was recognised for her exceptional work in support, winning this years Corporate Support Award at the Gala Award Dinner.  

It is always fantastic to see our industry’s stars receive the recognition they deserve. These are the best of the best in residential Property Management and we are so proud that Laetitia has been recognised.  This award is certainly well deserved.
