Why did Rodney Tanner join Realserve?

Recently we had a chat with Rod and discussed his excitement to be working with a company that is truly servicing the entire nation, after working with many Queensland based companies over the years that have a smaller focus. Rod said, ‘the Realserve management team are open minded and are not afraid to invest in modern technology which is critical to providing clients with the very best cost effective surveying services available. They have also been keen for someone like myself who is “hands on”, yes I still do fieldwork, to help develop, promote and expand the strong reputation of Realserve, in amongst the bigger, well known Queensland Surveying companies.’

What’s the most significant thing Rod thinks property professionals don’t realise when it comes to Lease Plans?

Rod has found that many property professionals don’t know that the Property Council of Australia’s Method of Measurement Guidelines, are just that – guidelines. If a “standard” has been used across a site, that is contrary to the PCA, a client can and should make us aware. He pointed out that ultimately, the Lease is an agreement between two parties only – The Lessor and Lessee, and we are happy to always ensure our plans reflect those agreements.
