Established in 2005, we specialise in the development of properties across various assets including medium-density residential, retail, commercial office, medical and many more, within the Melbourne metropolitan area. Over the last 15 Years, Romano Property Group (RPG) has successfully delivered multiple projects on time and on budget ranging in gross project value of AUD $30-$70 million.
RPG is an innovative, dynamic, market-focused property business, 100% owned by Maurice Romano and his family. With our core values at the forefront of our day to day work, we develop our own projects or work in partnership with key local and international joint venture partners. RPG’s strength lies in our ability to manage and control a property development concept through all stages of the development life cycle, including acquisitions, feasibility analysis, design, bank funding, project development/management, marketing, sales, project delivery and settlement.
We work collaboratively through a number of internal business divisions, working as a fully integrated property group that provides key services via its management team throughout the development process.
RPG maintains strong relationships with all major Australian banks for the sourcing of construction funding. We are methodical in our practices with a strong sense of strategic decision-making principles. We approach projects with a sense of flexibility and creativity, catering to any type of investor or stakeholder wealth creation strategy you may have.
