Celebrating 30 Years in Local Business
Marriott Lane punches above its weight
We’re the largest independent real estate office in Crows Nest, and with our impeccable 30 year track record on Sydney’s Lower North Shore, we’re very, very good at selling homes and managing rental properties.
Our specialty is prestige homes to new apartments and everything in between. From Crows Nest to St Leonards, to Lane Cove and Chatswood and beyond – we know every street on the Lower North Shore.
In fact, our industry knowledge and local market expertise is first-class, which means you can trust us to look after your biggest asset.
And because we’re independent, we can overdeliver for our clients - and we often do. This means we almost never lose a client to another real estate office: Marriott Lane clients stay Marriott Lane clients.
My name is Wayne Marriott, I am the founder and principal, and our skilled Property Sales Team and Property Management Teams, make it their mission to achieve outstanding sale prices and rental incomes for homeowners, investors and property developers.
And, because we know what the market wants, we’ll guide you through how to get your house or apartment ready to sell or lease. Often, a few subtle changes can make all the difference to first impressions and that all-important price guide.
Are you ready to experience Marriott Lane’s unique blend of superior service and absolute commitment to a top result? Ask our Property Sales Team or Property Management Team for a free home appraisal today.
Meet Our Team

What We Specialise In
From our long association with owners of residential real estate, we have gained a clear insight into what they are looking for from their property management agent.
Initially, they may start thinking they want the highest rent and lowest fees. However, on true reflection, their prioritised list would more likely look something like this:
- Protection of the property - not harmed by the tenant, kept safe and secure, repairs carried out to prevent damage, correct insurance
- Fair and reliable income - market rent, no arrears, short vacancy, rental increases in the future, suggestions for cost-effective improvements
- Confidence - that they can trust their interests are being looked after, excellent two-way communication resulting in a feeling of relaxed confidence
- A happy tenant - knowing that the tenant appreciates living in your property and is being treated with respect by your agent
- Value for money - fair fees, fair tradespeople costs, regular rent increases, a feeling that your investment is managed as though it was owned by the agent
To deliver these results, there are many things the agent must get right. Some of them are very important. Most problems in property management begin with the selection of a poor tenant. The fundamentals then start with finding a good tenant, preparing a comprehensive initial condition report, conducting regular inspections of the property, being vigilant about arrears, being proactive with repairs and reviewing rent at regular intervals, also all of the time initiating useful communication with the owners and returning calls promptly.
Our sales team is one of the most active and dynamic teams in the Lower North Shore. Our agents have a deep and up-to-date understanding of the local market, ensuring that we can provide our clients with the best possible advice when it comes to pricing their property.
To further support our sales efforts, we have an extensive database and buyer reach. Thanks to our high volume of ongoing business, our large database of current active buyers enables us to reach more potential buyers, generating interest in your property and increasing the chances of a successful sale.
Auction is a process whereby your property is promoted on its merits without limiting the final price. The specific time frame of an auction allows sellers to plan with a large degree of certainty.
It is definitely the best method of capitalising on strong competition. An auction creates an environment that generates ‘mutual endorsement’ whereby the other bidder validates your temptation to offer more for the property. Combined with the competitive streak inherent in most people, a higher than expected price can often be achieved. The auction day deadline instils a sense of urgency in buyers requiring them to be decisive.
It’s vital to generate the right exposure, to ensure a property is shown to the widest possible market and facilitate competition in an optimal timeframe. Whichever method you choose, it is important to assess the reaction from the marketplace before getting locked in with a response. It is often that in the initial two weeks, the best buyers view properties and the best offers usually come early too.
