Never has there been a time when the aged care and retirement industry is under scrutiny and developments need to be strategically planned.

The retirement villages are now bound by a RV new code of conduct. If the site is linked to an aged care facility, and may are now developing the ‘ageing in place’ coupled with the outcomes of the Aged Care Royal Commission so working with the operators to find suitable sites of need has never before been such a specialised area.

This niche focus is driven by a desire to combine my experience and knowledge of the aged care sector, understanding their challenges and my extensive network in the property market.




While seeking development sites for the aged care and senior living sector, we also are exposed to many types of commercial development sites to suit residential, affordable accommodation, medical, residential/commercial high rise, industrial, retail and education accommodation. We currently have a number of sites listed for commercial and industrial use and equally our extensive network.




The need has never been higher for affordable housing to meet the needs of people on low to moderate income including essential services, aged care workers, defence, medical, firefighters, police, and is priced so that they can afford other basic living costs such as food, clothing, transport, medical care and education.

Group housing and disability housing is now one of the nation’s most critical housing need, in an attempt to keep young people out of aged care facilities and provide the atmosphere and surroundings to enable them to grown and develop in the right surroundings and with their similar age groups.


About Site Unseen Property Acquisitions

Site Unseen Property Acquisitions specialises in searching for ‘off market’ sites to match the criteria for aged care, affordable housing, group housing and retirement living development.

Not all real estate agents understand this intricate industry.  It requires full knowledge and understanding of the criteria and needs of the buyer, plus the legislation and every changing complex needs of the industry.  Much of my knowledge has been gained from establishing relationships and working with the suppliers to the aged care industry for through the publishing arena for well over a decade.

Following a desire to diversity my career, has lead me to my hobby and passion, real estate.   I offer a service that is very specific and can be challenging for those not prepared for the requirements necessary to match the criteria for aged care, affordable housing, group housing and retirement living development, or off market commercial development or going concerns.

My qualifications have been gained from a successful print and digital advertising sales success for the media, personal property sales and transactions.  Customer service experience comes from many years of networking and building relationships within the aged care industry.

Site Unseen Property Acquisitions works closely with clients to a brief, seeking sites in target areas through our wide network.  Our method of operation short cuts the task by presenting the site for its suitability for aged care, senior living or commercial development.

Sites offered through our close network are not listed on a website. This immediately doubles your chances of finding the right property, giving you time to conduct an internal feasibility.

We are also offered many sites that may not be suitable for our clients and we also operate as a selling agent so we also offer to market your property  through our extensive database and relevant real estate channels.
