Since 1987 we have introduced thousands of people to each other.
Mobile populations and busy lives require extended "friend of a friend" networks.
Why do people come to us?
"Thanks Christine for your service. I have been most impressed with the quality of people, available homes and range of suitable locations to choose from. In addition, your personalised matching and follow through service saved me a great deal of time and effort". KM. Consultant, Sensis
"Dear Chris, Well you said you would find me something by Friday and it is only 1 day later (not your fault) - what a relief. I reckon I have the best situation. THANK YOU." MW
Be aware that many internet services do not match files, we do, and we make personal recommendations so that you save time and possibly embarrassment by meeting the like-minded people - we are like a friend-of-a-friend network, only better.
Seventy percent of our business is repeat business or word of mouth.
Our personal matching is assisted by a smart database which matches requests selectively to put compatible people in touch with each other. Everyone completes a detailed questionnaire which is essential for accurate matching. We are pioneers in a new industry catering for our changing society. We provide an efficient way to find your kind of person in a city of millions.
To personally match requests. Our members think that matching matters.
We collect information electronically, we match files personally. In this regard our service is unique.
We provide our members with a personal recommendation to each other taking into account the requests of EACH person. It is a friend of a friend referral but our questionnaire and matching removes the pot-luck.
We have earned an excellent reputation since our inception in 1987.
The statistics show a dramatic increase in the number of people who never marry or who do not stay married - yet our political leaders continue to pitch to the family.
We are one of the few champions of the single person. We have been able to influence government policy makers about housing design. We presented to the Parliamentary Committee which last reviewed the Residential Tenancies Act.
We work to give dignity to being single, to sharing accommodation and to finding new friends to mind your home or share leisure time.
We take it as a compliment that our work has been copied - we hope these businesses also work to improve awareness in the community.
Many people who use our services refer their friends. This means that we usually know the networks of our members - this is better and much broader than a friend of a friend referral. If you are looking for shared accommodation, a house minder or house sitter or a house to mind, to people to swap houses with, a business partner, a friend who shares your interests or someone to share the ownership of a home we could be your most productive source.
