No one knows residential property management quite like Tony Warren.
Widely recognised as Australia’s industry leader in property management, with a vast bank of experience both nationally and internationally, Tony has achieved the kind of success that is simply unmatched by anyone else.
An impressive professional history, covering almost 40 years in real estate, includes positions as both owner and director of several high profile real estate firms. Most recently Tony spent 13 years as the director/owner of Woodards before taking up the role of General Manager of the Property Management Division at high profile Sydney agency McGrath Real Estate.
Upon returning to Melbourne, Tony took on the responsibility as General Manager of the Philip Webb Property Management Division where he was approached to cross the Nullarbor and take on the role of Managing Director for Wentworth Property Management, the operational arm of public listed company, Wentworth Holdings Ltd.
Under Tony’s involved management style, Wentworth grew from 400 managed properties in Perth in January 2005 to over 16,000 nationally by December 2007.
As a past Chairman of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria’s Property Management and Education Committees, Tony has been heavily involved with the Institute and played an integral part in its submissions to government on various legislative changes. He was also the only real estate representative on the former Federal government’s most recent review of tenancy legislation Australia-wide.
Tony has long been involved in training Australia’s property management professionals, having trained property managers for all Real Estate Institutes Australia-wide in the Advanced Property Management course, as well as training property managers in both New Zealand and the United States. His involvement in training won him the inaugural REIV Trainer of the Year Award and his property management marketing expertise won him the National Association of Property Managers (US) Marketing Award.
Tony and his wife Anne were also awarded the Florida Association of Property Managers designation of Property Management Expert of which there are only three in Australia.
His expertise and accomplishments stretch much further than training being a twice published author as well as the real estate representative on the Residential Tenancies Bond Implementation Committee, plus being a keynote speaker at numerous Real Estate Conventions in Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
Tony and Anne are now the sole Directors of True Property Management (VIC) with offices in Docklands, Melbourne and Directors of Real Estate Management Advisory (REMA), a real estate training and consulting company.
Many treat property management only as job; an enlightened few treat it as a real estate career; but Tony has made it his life-long passion.
