Grow a more profitable agency with our specialised real estate and accounting knowledge.
Build yourself a real estate business
with better numbers
As a real estate principal you understand the value of time. Weekends, time wasters, the ebbs and flows of the market.
Time spent on administration and bookkeeping is time that could have been spent more productively – connecting with potential buyers and sellers or training and mentoring staff.
You may not want to spend your time selling forever and dream of designing a succession plan or what to do with your hard-earned profits.
You need to build an asset that’s profitable and worth something as you get older.
At creditte, we offer real estate agencies a full finance function. We instantly free up your time with our bookkeeping, accounting, tax and CFO services while helping you build a long-term asset through our financial advice, which comes from many years working in your industry.
We not only look after real estate businesses but the people behind them too; including individual agent tax returns, succession planning, and self-managed super fund (SMSF) services all tailored specifically for the real estate industry and your needs.
creditte is different in that we’ve been working closely with real estate agencies since 2012.
We take care of the basics, like your business structure, bookkeeping and tax lodgements, but where we really stand tall is in our CFO advisory services.
We have a proven record of taking Australian real estate agencies forward into better cash flow management and financial control. We help principals navigate things such as scaling their agency, acquisitions and/or sale of rent rolls, planning for marketing dips, and more.
