InspectRealEstate was founded by Andrew Reece and Mike van Raders in Brisbane in 2011.
Andrew Reece has more than 15 years of experience in the Real Estate industry. He is well known for his intense passion for the industry, honesty and practical down-to-earth strategies for profitable, organic growth. Andrew is a Certified Practising Accountant and has a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting from the Queensland University of Technology. Working as a Real Estate Accountant for 3 years preparing monthly management reports for 25 of southeast Queensland’s leading Real Estate agents, lead to his involvement in bringing the Franchise of RE/MAX to Australia. Andrew then worked with the RE/MAX Corporate team in establishing the first 8 RE/MAX franchised Real Estate offices.
Andrew went on to become a partner in prorentals.com.au, a 100% pure property management company that opened for business in 1998 with 30 properties. prorentals.com.au managed over 1,700 properties and employed 32 full-time staff. Operating from the one office in Toowong, Brisbane, Queensland, prorentals.com.au organically grew 2,743 new managements. In late 2011 prorentals.com.au completed the sale of its properties under management. Andrew learned how to grow a business from first-hand experiences & mistakes.
It is this first-hand experience that led Andrew to co-create inspectrealestate.com.au. Andrew identified the need for a solution to the time-consuming task of manually following up on leads, booking inspections, and creating inspection runs. The inspectrealestate.com.au software automatically captures tenant details and allows tenants to book inspections online. It enables Property Managers to plan their inspection runs with the simple press of a button, allowing them to focus on the real task at hand – Property Management.
Mike van Raders has a strong electronics engineering background. He also has extensive experience in developing and managing software systems, including more than 12 years of experience developing property management software solutions, such as prorentals.com.au’s online tenant inspection booking system.
Mike currently leads the technical development as the CTO of InspectRealEstate.
