Doug has been a licensed real estate agent since 1991 commencing his career in residential sales in a high profile agency in Brisbane. Deb joined the business in 1997 and in 1999 they decided to go out on their own, opening their own agency in Brisbane’s Teneriffe/New Farm area which specialised in project marketing.
A chance meeting in 2006 led them becoming involved in the purchase of childcare centres for the major operators at the time and what they thought would be a sideline to the business turned into the entire business and they closed the residential arm of their agency to concentrate fully on the sale of childcare centres which continues to this day.
Over this 11 year period they have built the business into a highly respected specialist childcare sales brokerage that owes its success not only to their thorough industry knowledge but more importantly to good old fashioned service. Deb and Doug are very proud of the fact that they are recognised in the industry as being true “Vendors Agents”
They relocated the business to Sydney in 2011 but operate nationally.

60 place centre
Set on a prime 1,323 m2 block in a dress circle suburb in Brisbane's East, this newly constructed purpose built centre is unquestionably one of Brisbane's absolute blue chip centres. Opened 5 months ago the centre is currently licensed for 60 children with fees of $135.00 per day but can be increased to 67 places. Demand for enrollments has been extraordinary and it is now approaching full occupancy. With current turnover at $30K per week and wages at $13K per week this an absolute bargain for the astute purchaser. After 12 months of trading this business will be worth at the barest minimum a million dollars more but the owner/landlord is selling now to take advantage of another opportunity The Vendor is offering the centre at an extraordinarily reasonable price and with a very long and reasonable lease in exchange for a quick and trouble free settlement. Given the offering the price of $2,450,000 and rent of $260K PA are not negotiable.
Business and Freehold
Very well established purpose built 63 place centre with an excellent reputation in the local area. Very well maintained building and playgrounds and the centre enjoys excellent occupancy and has settled and qualified staff contingent. Very well located on the Sunshine coast with easy access to major arterial roads, a large shopping complex and a hospital. Simply a great opportunity to secure both the business and freehold of a successful and well run centre.
20 place centre
Very well established centre with a good reputation in the local community. The centre has one room and there is also a rented residence upstairs which is entirely seperate to the business. It is located close to the public school. This centre has been run by the current owner for the past 9 years and combined with a reasonable rent it is ideal for the owner operator.
