Company Profile


Nichols Crowder Property Solutions

Nichols Crowder specialises in selling, leasing and managing industrial and commercial property.  We take great pride in helping clients achieve their property goals by providing outstanding solutions.

Each year, the experienced staff in our Moorabbin, Carrum Downs and Mornington offices assist thousands of investors and companies with their property matters across Melbourne’s South East suburbs.

Innovative thinking is the cornerstone of Nichols Crowder’s solutions-focused culture.  Driving this are Directors Matt Nichols and Matt Spicer who run the Moorabbin office, and Directors Michael Crowder and Richard Wraith who run Carrum Downs and Mornington offices.

With an exceptional, in-depth knowledge of the local market, we proactively analyse business trends and important government factors.  Our research includes economics and demographic changes, important rezoning and legislative changes, and transport infrastructure developments which can greatly affect the value of commercial and industrial property. 

Most importantly, Nichols Crowder takes the time to get to know its clients and understand their needs, always acting with the utmost care on their behalf for the best property outcomes.

Further, we ensure that property marketing budgets are carefully invested to create effective marketing strategies and maximise their return for the client.  Our innovative ideas have won 30 Real Estate Institute of Victoria awards for Best Sales and Leasing Campaigns since 2006, and two REIV Commercial Agency of the Year awards.
