Trend Residential Property Management & Sales is owned and operated by Brian Cutajar & Sharon Pinilla.  Our main point of difference is that WE will be the ones who look after your investment property, or assist in the selling of your home. We are not just employees, therefore our approach with our clients is far more personal, and we will have a long term commitment to providing you with a professional & consistent level of service.

Our agency was established to provide individualised property management, as we manage a smaller rent roll which means we can provide our clients with great attention to detail when it comes to managing your biggest asset.
