Who we are

We are an Australian company, founded by Tony Maple-Brown in 1979.

We have been setting the agenda in the real estate technology space for almost forty years. Since our inception, we have been leading the trust accounting real estate software category for both property management and strata management.

Today, fifty-five percent of Australian rental properties and forty percent of strata lots are managed on Rockend software. In an industry where legislation can drastically vary across state, we were the first Property Management Software company to have a truly national presence in the 90’s, before expanding regionally into New Zealand in 2004. 

Throughout the years, we have been consistently recognised for the outstanding quality of our service, support team, and leadership by the Customer Service Institute of Australia (CSIA). In a world that is increasingly digital, and through the development of our property and strata management solutions, we remain committed to providing an enjoyable property experience for everyone

What continuously sets us apart from others, is our relentless culture of innovation – both in how we instill a customer advocacy way of working among our workforce, but also in the way we service more than 50,000 users every day.

Rockend Cottage

“Rockend is the name of a house - now a restaurant - in Punt Road, Gladesville. My great great grand mother, Emily Mary Barton, lived at this house for 40 years. She is best remembered as the grandmother of Banjo Patterson who lived at Rockend in the 1870s while studying at Sydney Grammar School.”

A short history of Rockend

Rockend was established in 1979 by Tony Maple-Brown. In the early years the company worked on a range of general accounting solutions before focusing on property and strata management applications.

 

The first office was established in the small shipyard suburb of Waverton, on the north of Sydney Harbour.  In 2010, Rockend launched Australia's first true cloud based property management solution, Property Tree.

Today Rest Professional, Strata Master, File Smart and Property Tree are used every day by over 50,000 property and strata management professionals throughout Australia and New Zealand.

 

An industry leader, Rockend still remains focused on delivering the best products and support available to the property sector. Our reputation, growth and ongoing success stems from the quality of our people, a diverse team with extensive industry experience and the support of our clients.
