A Message from the Founder

I am thrilled to share some exciting news with all of you - the launch of our brand new Company Profile, showcasing the extensive range of services that The FIRM provides to our valued members across the globe.

Founded on the 10th of June 2000, The FIRM started over 23 years ago as a small boutique property investment company on the Gold Coast of Queensland. Since then, we have grown exponentially, boasting a community of 20,074 National and International members. We have delivered over 200 News and Reviews Newsletters and sold tens of thousands of properties to first and second generations of families.

As a market leader, The FIRM has become one of the few residential property investment corporations with expertise covering all facets of property, offering a comprehensive service for Financial Independence & Retirement Management.

Our success would not have been possible without our experienced and dedicated team - experts in their fields and passionate about their work. Combined with our ethical approach, this team of professional service providers has earned us a reputation as a Trusted Name in the Industry. Members return to us and refer friends and family year after year, a testament to the trust we've built.

In celebration of our 23rd anniversary, we are thrilled to announce the evolution of our image.

Many of you are familiar with The FIRM Technologies, which invested 16 years of research and development into producing the lightweight concrete FIRMTEC panel for factory-built modular housing construction.

Now, the time has come for us to introduce The FIRM International Cruise Line to the marketplace.

We created for you back in January 2023  "The ULTIMATE EVENT" which was an outrageous success. You can read about it in our 212th MONTHLY EDITION, 

Most of you who attended on such short notice inspected AQUA QUEST for the very first time and witnessed the arrival of our first Luxury Cruise Liner. Enjoying the Grand Tour of the ship, inspecting the cabin that you reserved to purchase, and then celebrating with a beautiful 3-course meal complimented with the appropriate wines. 

This marks a significant milestone in our journey, and we are eager to share this momentous occasion with our dedicated team.

I want to express my gratitude for your ongoing support, especially during the challenges of the past. Remember to stay HEALTHY, WEALTHY & WISE until our next update.

Thank you again, and let's look forward to an exciting future together!

Kindest regards,

John Ibbitson
