McIntyre Property is spreading its wings once more, opening its third office in 11 years, in Greenway, Tuggeranong.

Opening in Anketell street, in the South Quay 1 building opposite Bunnings, the new office will offer clients more services and exposure for their properties.

A reflection of the family-owned, community-driven agency’s winning formula, the Greenway office is establishing as Tuggeranong Town Centre becomes a more vibrant cafe, restaurant and commercial hub.

“We thought it was time to have an office in the town centre of Tuggeranong as we service the whole region,” says Col McIntyre, principal of McIntyre Property.

McIntyre Property Management team leader Jasmine Henjak and Col McIntyre’s wife Jo Matters will head up the new office.

McIntyre Property first opened in Canberra’s south at Lanyon, followed by Belconnen in the north and now Greenway.

“We will be spreading our team over the Lanyon and Greenway offices with property management and sales at both offices,” Col McIntyre says.

“We have an award-winning property management team which won the Property Management Team of the Year at the Real Estate Institute awards this year,” Col says.

“We have a long-standing, stable team of committed property managers, with Lisa Konig being with us for nearly seven years,” the real estate principal says.

New dining options are adding to the buzz around cafes and restaurants as the town centre enjoys an influx of people working for the Department of Social Services which opened its national headquarters in Tuggeranong in 2017. Other major government departments add to the employment opportunities and consequently demand well-presented accommodation.

New staff at the McIntyre Property’s modern and spacious Greenway office will enjoy the purpose-built facilities and having the room to grow the business.

“The office gives our brand greater exposure and our clients another option when needing to visit us,” Col says. “We will have a window display at Greenway, bringing more exposure to our clients’ properties.”

Greenway is a rising suburb that offers waterside living, enriched with lovely mountain views. For investors, the apartment market is a proven performer, with average yields of 6 per cent.

According to Domain, across Canberra, house prices have risen on average 4 per cent, and Col believes Tuggeranong as a whole has comfortably topped that average.

“Young couples are drawn to the area because of affordable new townhouses and apartments,” Col says. “Numerous cycleways wind through the suburbs while Lake Tuggeranong is a peaceful place for walking and picnic areas,” he says.

Col says Greenway is mostly high density with surrounding suburbs offering more medium to standard residential properties with big blocks for families to enjoy. At the core of the Tuggeranong community for the past seven years, McIntyre Property supports local sporting groups, charities and schools.

McIntyre Property is a major partner in presenting SouthFest which will celebrate life in the Tuggeranong Valley on November 24, bringing celebrations into the streets, laneways and lake foreshore.
