About Us

Company Profile

Godwin Witten & Associates was established in May 1991. Within a remarkably short period of time the company developed into one of the most successful businesses of its kind in Cairns, a business and reputation built on professionalism, integrity and results.

Alex Witten has been in the property industry for over 30 years, and from many different angles – from development to sales, from auctioneering to property management.

Godwin Witten’s core business is property management, both residential and commercial and as such Godwin Witten is the largest rental agency in Cairns and far North Queensland, however a sales department for both residential and commercial properties is very active servicing the requirements of our landlords as well as our overall client base.

Our company has also developed a solid and enviable position as consultants to developers but our recent expansion and growing client base are testament to the fact that our business doesn’t stop there. Companies, builders, landlords and a significant group of residential clients are all experiencing the satisfaction of dealing with Godwin Witten & Associates, the real estate company with the emphasis on real.

As members of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ), Godwin Witten support their codes of professional conduct and ethical standards.

With buyers and sellers, landlords and tenants, increasing their demands and expectations the company’s philosophy is to provide service professionally with experienced and skilled personnel.

What makes Godwin Witten Realty Different?

Efficient courteous staff, all of who have received the latest REIQ training and specialised computer software means that tenants are handled quickly and professionally. Problems are attended to promptly and tenants have demonstrated a preference in dealing with Godwin Witten & Associates.

All offices are well located and ensure a steady stream of pedestrian traffic pass our premises daily.

Attractive and bright window displays draw attention to our properties and many rental placements while the effective use of other mediums, like the Internet, ensure quicker and ever-increasing sales and rentals potential.

New and innovative marketing for tenants across three different websites, including Realestate.com.au, ensures our advertisements are well read and stand out from the crowd. This ensures that along with a steady stream of 'walk in' tenants, we receive numerous phone enquiries for our rental properties, enabling Godwin Witten & Associates to remain 'choosy' when selecting tenants, yet ensuring our landlords maintain maximum occupancy possible.

The right advice is essential to ensure your rental investment property is priced correctly for the market. Our trained staff are assessing the letting properties on a daily basis and have the market knowledge to ensure your property is priced correctly. Remember you are better off with a paying tenant on a reduced rent than allowing your property to sit empty and lose income.

Our attitude to investment property management is to maximise your annual return.
