Tourism Property was founded by Matt Davidson, a long term hospitality management professional.
Perhaps the best thing about Tourism Property is that we’ve come from a hospitality management, rather than a real estate background.
“I see tourism asset transactions as completely different to typical real estate work”, says Matt. “Successful sales campaigns take planning and persistence. Tourism assets are often among the most valuable businesses in any city. These are complex transactions that require skill, diplomacy, commitment and dedication. Properly understanding the business is the only way to be able to portray it’s worth and potential to buyers”.
In 2011, Matt was recognised by his peers to be awarded the prestigious ACES Award for Excellence in Accommodation Management. The list of past recipients is impressive to say the least.
After working at the top level in regional tourism for many years, Matt started a very successful hotel management and consultancy firm – 2T. Over 12 years, 2T worked with tourism developers, local and state government bodies, private hotel owners, receivers and liquidators.
Matt also spent 8 years on the board of Destination Wollongong, many of these as chairman. He is credited with taking what was a local tourism association into a dynamic, enterprising body with long term secure funding and a raft of commercial opportunities.
Matt explains how his hospitality management background has been key to his success:
“Working in top resorts and hotels, you quickly come to learn that hospitality is the ultimate in customer service. Everything that I’ve done in business since my first day on the job at Dunk Island Resort has been grounded in understanding and exceeding customer expectations. Tourism Property delivers an unmatched level of service to both sellers and buyers. It’s not a cliché, it’s just the only way I’ve ever known”.
Tourism Property believe that always attending property inspections is critical – this is the opportunity to ensure the potential buyer is aware of the key selling points of the business.
Our long experience in hotel management gives us the advantage to properly understand your business, it’s potential and how the buyer can take advantage of opportunities.
“When we first hear from buyers, we take the time to qualify their interest. We take a targeted approach to marketing tourism businesses and need to ensure that potential buyers are financially capable of completing the transaction; are well informed about the property and genuinely interested in further assessment of the opportunity”.
You can rely on Tourism Property to professionally promote and market your property. Any marketing collateral that has our name on it, or is in any way linked to us, will completely reflect the professionalism and ultimate customer service that we believe in. We use professional images, including drone aerial photography and TV quality video production.
Tourism Property has a strong link into high net worth Chinese families, actively investing in Australian property and businesses. We also have a direct connection to major Chinese real estate investment companies. This is of course a major advantage for substantial tourism properties in all locations. We have in-house translation services to prepare marketing materials, web listings and video voiceover in Mandarin Chinese.
We’ve spent time to set up processes that make things easier for both buyers and sellers. Registered buyers are able to access password protected downloads on our website, such as property Information Memorandum. We have a secure hosted data room where buyers who have inspected the property and completed a Confidentiality Agreement can access due diligence materials.
With our decades of experience in hotel management, mentoring and business coaching we’re best placed to assist buyers in their tourism asset purchase.
Selling your tourism asset takes a lot more effort than just sending a buyer out to meet you. Work with us and truly benefit from our experience.
