a 360° service

Our property development management services will give you a better outcome, make you more money and you’ll see your money faster.

Whether you already own an existing property or block of land or you are looking to buy and develop in Melbourne – we can help.

We manage every last detail for you to remove the stress and minimise your risk, taking care of the entire development process for you from beginning to end.

Property development management services is what we live and breathe. It’s what we do, and we do it well.

You can sit back and relax as we organise your finance, town planning, demolition, architectural drawings, build the developments, sell the properties if required – and everything in between.

We know how to maximise land value through intelligent design. And we know the types of dwellings that make the most profit.

While you may be capable of completing the project – you’d be figuring it all out on the go which is risky business. As seasoned residential property developers Melbourne I can tell you it is a high stakes game where even small mistakes can have big consequences. Our expertise ensures mitigating risk, faster project delivery time, and of course massive cost savings.

We’re sticklers for detail, we know exactly how long things should take and how much they should cost. Plus, due to the volume of work we do where you would pay retail, we pay less than wholesale. We pass those savings onto you.

Development management fees

At Little Fish we keep it very simple, our development management fee is based on the projects estimated build price and is broken up into key project milestones with clear project deliverables that need to be met before payment is required.

As Melbourne’s leading property development consultants and project managers, we understand that no two projects are the same. That’s why we tailor our property development management services to suit the specific needs of your project from go to whoa.

“In the end it really allowed us to maximise our returns, and we’ve done a lot better than expected in the process”

Alice Spriggs - Williamstown

“The feasibility was set around 14% on project, by the end of the project it wound up in the region of 30% and it wasn’t all market growth – it was an amazing result for us”

Scott Gordon - Carnegie
residential property developer melbourne

“We had prices that were considerably higher than we first anticipated with building costs at 2.3-2.4 million dollars, we recently signed the contract at 1.9 million without changing the fabric of what we were trying to achieve. We have no hesitations recommending Little Fish.”

Matt Bracken & Andrew Hall – Hawthorn East

“Little Fish over achieved on the first development which has lead to me referring other clients to them over the journey. Their project management style and pricing has actually saved us money over that journey which is a nice way to say that your project manager hasn’t cost you anything.”

Robert Rushford – Rushford & Mathison Advisory

“Whether you are looking to purchase a property off the plan or you are looking to do a project that Little Fish can help and guide you through I don’t think you’ll find a better company out there to make it happen for you.”
