Real Estate services

Planned Auctions will now occur through an Expressions of Interest process.

As the situation around Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, we want to ensure you that the health and wellbeing of our customers and employees is our number one priority.

The current selection of Public Trustee of Queensland property auctions has been cancelled in accordance with the advice on gatherings provided by the Prime Minister on 24th March 2020. The majority of properties that were listed to go to auction from Friday 27th will be available to purchase through an ‘Expression of Interest’ process. Interested buyers can obtain the ‘Expression of Interest’ documentation by emailing with a request for these documents to be emailed. The closing date for receipt of an ‘Expression of Interest’ offered on each property will be detailed on the documentation provided.

For regional listing Public Trustee Real Estate Services will continue partnering with our Agents to determine the optimal method of sale.

Inspections of all our properties are by appointment only until further notice.

We will continue to take the following precautionary measures at all our private inspections: 

  • Continuing to remain diligent in our cleaning practices
  • Monitoring the number of people that attend our private inspections
  • Making hand sanitising stations readily available

The Public Trustee is working closely with the relevant government agencies in response to Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and will continue to monitor advice from health authorities and take extra precautions as necessary.

Can I have a copy of the contract and what are the rates?
