Accounting & Bookkeeping for Real Estate Agencies

When it comes to being an agent, your everyday responsibilities revolve around engaging those prospects and landing a valuable sale. When you’re busy interacting with clients and managing the many tasks of your role, the financial aspects of your business understandably fall by the wayside.

The last thing on any agent’s mind is the accounting that happens behind the scenes. What this means is that all those niggling little details often get swept under the rug and – over time – turn into massive chores to complete.

However, with proper bookkeeping for property managers, all of these challenges can be avoided. All it takes is a reliable real estate accounting team you can trust.

No matter what kind of agency you run, it’s crucial that you have an accounting system in place that can keep track of your financial planning. While real estate bookkeepers often have fairly simple tasks to complete, but a lot of this comes down to ensuring every line item is recorded efficiently.

However, when it comes to choosing the ideal property tax accountant in Melbourne for your agency, there is a “one-size-fits-all” solution. Every business and situation is different and requires a customised approach to embrace its needs. Real estate agencies are no exception, so at Wilson Pateras, we ensure you’re never met with typical, standard products that don’t reflect the nature of your unique operations. 

We care about the details

Our bookkeepers for property managers pride themselves on being detail-oriented. We always ask the right questions and show an interest in your business, no matter how big or small your team is.

Additionally, as we have worked hard to create a trustworthy range of services, we ensure our clients always benefit financially from our guidance, educating them towards better real estate bookkeeping practices and maintaining compliance where it matters most.

Ensuring your books are kept accurate and up to date at all times, we’ll support your business from start to finish. Make more informed decisions and access clarity on your revenue streams when you’re looking to make changes in your operations. Across every base, we allow your agency to be financially secure and in line with all relevant obligations. 

What we do

Accounts payable: 

From setting up your books for optimal growth and profitability to maximising cash flow and liquidity, our business bookkeepers for property management companies help you to become unstoppable. We’ll prepare essential financial reports and support you in forecasting better for the future. 


Accounts receivable: 

You need to be clear about how much you should receive from your debtors before you can expect your business to sustain, or even to talk about, growing. As property managers, it’s also crucial that you receive funds where they’re owed. At Wilson Pateras, we support this process by reminding clients of the overdue payments or by making the payment ourselves on their behalf. We’ll also ensure all of these transactions are recorded productively, reconciling all accounts when needed.

Client Stories

Here’s what one of our real estate agent clients say about Wilson Pateras.

"In terms of running the number side of things, the whys and the wheres and the hows — definitely the accountant side, that’s where Wilson Pateras are invaluable. You have a lot of money coming in but if you are not balancing it, then all of a sudden your tax debt can catch up with you really quickly and you can have a mini heart attack when you turn around and realise that."
