At Leah Jay, we take people and property further. Forging paths endures in our DNA since our conception, when we went against the grain to imagine a service dedicated entirely to property management.
In 1994 Leah Jay commenced her property management business as a sole trader in Hamilton. Leah ventured into business for herself after heading the rentals team at one of the region’s most reputable real estate firms.
“It was seen as a bold step at the time; Leah Jay was the first business in the country dedicated solely to property management.”
At the time, the situation with real estate in Newcastle, as far as rentals were concerned, was a very different picture to what it is today. The interests of sales and rentals were often not the same; with sales always holding sway. This was the norm across real estate agencies in Newcastle, and throughout Australia. Leah was inspired to build a service dedicated to property investors – a specialist property management service with superior levels of expertise, care and commitment.
It was seen as a bold step at the time; Leah Jay was the first business in the country dedicated solely to property management – many said it wouldn’t work.
In 2014, we celebrated two decades of leadership in the industry and incredible success against the odds. The following year our team expanded to over fifty and now, five years later in 2020, Leah Jay is going from strength to strength, recently evolving our brand to better reflect our growth and leadership as an organisation.
