As a business visionary, Keris has steered the company to the forefront of the furnished corporate rental industry over the past 21 years.  Originally launched in 1989 by Keris and her father Ivan Hodge, The Apartment Service was the first furnished rental property service in Sydney and is now surging ahead as market leader in the industry.

 

Keris lives and breathes the business, and has an extensive knowledge of the industry on our shores and overseas, as well as future developments and trends. It is no surprise that she has become a key spokesperson for the furnished rental accommodation industry in Australia.

 

With an enviable database of blue chip clients built steadily over the years, Keris believes the company’s success comes from providing an elite level of customer service to both the corporate tenant and property owner.

 

“We are extremely proud of the high rental returns we achieve for our property owners due to the fact that we are all passionate and look after their property as if it were our own. Good quality tenants and a comprehensive security and reference check ensure the properties are looked after, not mistreated.”

 

“We are successful because our clients are delighted with our stable of high quality properties and outstanding 24/7 customer service, but ultimately this is a ‘people business’, and our success is testament to the team of skilled professionals we employ.”

 

“We carefully select people who can work very well together and have the passion, commitment and caring attitudes required for the business. The relocation process for corporate tenants can be initially stressful so it is critical that our staff have the sensitivity, intuition and finesse to ensure a smooth transition for them.”

 

“We have a database of over 9000 corporate clients who regularly utilise the services of TheApartment Service for furnished rental apartments, luxury city holiday home stays and country holiday accommodation; and The ApartmentService Realty for unfurnished long leasing, valuations, and properties for sale.”

 

“Holidaymakers are an important tenant for us, as more of them are seeking serviced style apartments as opposed to hotels. We offer one week stays with the option of serviced cleaning on request.”

 

“We mostly cater for corporate staff relocating on secondment to Sydney or Melbourne, and in need of a furnished apartment for their initial stay. The tenant may require a home for three, six months or the entire two to three contractual period, or only need a temporary home until his family and household goods arrive from their place of origin.”

 

“Our business is currently booming as corporations are once again re-locating staff globally. It is therefore a lucrative time to purchase an investment property for corporate lease"  Keris Hodge
