A Message from the Founder

I am delighted to announce our brand new Company Profile which highlights all the services that The FIRM offers to our members around the world.

Founded on the 10th June 2000, starting over 20 years ago as a small boutique property investment company on the Gold Coast of Queensland,

The FIRM has since grown to 20,074 National and International members, delivered 152 News and Reviews Newsletters and sold tens of thousands of properties to first and second generations of families.

We have become one of the few residential property investment corporations with expertise covering all facets of property as the market leader offering a full service for Financial Independence & Retirement Management.

All this would not be possible without our experienced and dedicated team, who are all experts in their fields and passionate about their work. This team, combined with our ethical approach are why our members return to us and refer friends and family year after year. No wonder why we have gained a reputation as a Trusted Name in the Industry.

As part of our 20th anniversary celebrations we have decided after many years to evolve our image.

As many of you are aware The FIRM Technologies invested 16 years of research and development into producing our lightweight concrete FIRMTEC panel for modular construction. 28 factory built pre-production homes were delivered around Australia for testing durability and affordability.

And remember stay HEALTHY, WEALTHY & WISE until next time.
