Marco Afonso's main focus is to manage and improve the performance of all his clients' investment properties. With over 10 years experience as a Client Relationship Specialist, Marco looks at the bigger picture when dealing with challenges and is not afraid to try new strategies and ideas to find the best property management solution specific to each situation.
Marco joined Taylors in May 2017 and shares our passion for innovation, improvement and looking to make a difference every day. Whether saving money for a landlord without compromising the property, or recommending improvements at minimal expense, Marco explains the benefits to the client and how the cost will improve the financial return.
Marco enjoys the character that is present in properties in the Eastern Suburbs and that his clients understand the importance of being strategic in growing wealth through property investment. With a history of uncovering the potential in property and working with clients to gain the best return on their portfolio, the Eastern Suburbs is the ideal location for Marco to excel.
When not assisting clients with building their wealth through property, Marco loves his sports, great food and all things car and motorbike related. You will often find him dabbling in the kitchen, preparing new dishes for his young family.
Marco is committed to dealing with people with professionalism and integrity. He is passionate about property and finding new ways to improve properties for his clients. He thrives in the friendly team oriented, open-minded culture at Taylors and is aligned with our philosophy that property management is more than collecting rent and fixing taps; it is about providing a complete property management solution to investors and tenants.
'Really happy with the service provided by Marco. Very prompt in any questions or requests we had and generally very easy to deal with. Thoroughly recommend' - V Spassov, Randwick
'Marco Afonso, Client Relationship Specialist, has been a pleasure to deal with. Issues in and around the apartment that I have raised with him have been seen to promptly and I have been really happy with the outcome' - Susan Honey
'My partner and I needed to find a house to relocate to NSW from interstate and Marco was super friendly and helpful from the first enquiry. He understood that our preliminary visit would be time sensitive and was gracious enough to adjust his inspection time slightly to suit. Marco was careful to make sure the homeowner was able to know a bit about us, and us about them, which is a nice touch I don't often see. Marco answered any questions I had in a very prompt fashion which took away a great deal of the anxious uncertainty of moving interstate. The day of the 'big move', Marco went out of his way to make sure I didn't have to do any work, or worry about timings regarding collecting the keys. This was a huge stress relief after a mammoth day. I have never had such amazing customer service from a real estate agent before. I understand that rentals don't generate the greatest revenue in that industry, and often the service is simply satisfactory. Simply not with these guys' - Danielle Spicer, Sylvania
'Marco Afonso is one of the best agents I have dealt with. Everything was easy and honest. Would recommend Taylors to anyone looking to rent and Marco in particular' - Andrei Belik
'Highly recommend Marco Afonso as a property manager. He made the whole process for us easy and pain free. He went out of his way to help us by staying late and always picking up phone calls which helped us a lot as we work a lot. If you are looking for a hands on property manager who replies quickly and has all the answers, Marco is definitely who I would recommend' - Ashlee Finlay, Kensington
'Taylors is truly the best real estate agency I've ever encountered. They oversaw the last apartment I rented, and over those three years I always found them to be very responsive and transparent. They defy the stereotype of the dodgy and underhanded real estate agent! A special shout out to Marco, who is a total legend. He is diligent, helpful and compassionate. I really appreciated his support and sensitivity recently when I was required to move out of the apartment (no fault of Taylors, or mine - but a necessity for the landlord). Thanks again' - Susannah Waters, Maroubra Beach
