Janelle Platt

Janelle Platt

Owner & Property Manager

It’s official: Janelle loves large, close-knit families. It’s how she grew up in rural Victoria before heading north to the bright lights of the Gold Coast at age 19; it’s how she lives now; and it’s how she approaches Queensland Lifestyle Real Estate. She and her partner Dan want you to be a part of this family!


20 years in the industry have given her extensive real estate skills, but her number one love (besides Dan of course!) is property management. She’s darn good at it to, possessing an almost mystical ability to keep all parties happy, from tenants to maintenance men to homeowners! It’s rumoured in real estate circles that she has some sort of magic wand… but we know it’s just her charm, charisma and positive attitude that gets it done!


With a long list of clients who recommend and revere her, Janelle has a track record of delivering results. Transparent communication channels and a friendly, personable style form the foundation for long-term business relationships. Firm, fair and honest, she is looking forward to bringing her unique brand of property management to Rochedale. More importantly, she is looking forward to putting it to work for you! Put your investment in safe hands and give her a ring today.

She was highly professional in all matters and demonstrated an extensive knowledge

I had the pleasure of dealing with Ms Janelle Platt when I moved from NSW to the Gold Coast in mid 2018. Due to the fact I was located in another state, I had to rely on Ms Platt more so than normal. She was highly professional in all matters and demonstrated an extensive knowledge of real estate issues relating to South East QLD. She was a pleasure to deal with and clearly loves her profession and her clients. I am more than happy to recommend Janelle. -

Don’t make her your Agent. Make her your friend. You won’t be disappointed.

Real Estate Agents are a funny breed. Most people are wary of them. Not so with Janelle. When you discover her gentle, beaming smile, you might be excused for thinking she is a pussycat. Make no mistake. She is no less than a Tiger. My family and I relocated to the Gold Coast from Melbourne on September 29 of this year. We were looking for an Apartment to rent while we discovered the place before deciding where to buy a property. We found one online and, along with it, Janelle. She was truly professional, friendly, reliable and, above all, committed to what she does beyond any expectations I may have had, having rented several properties over the years. Every time I requested some information, even for her to Facetime us so we could see the Apartment, she was there, unflinching. When dealing with a Rental Agent from the perspective of a Tenant, you always expect them to put the Landlord first, which, of course, she did. However, her unwavering patience, the level of friendliness in her tone, the service she delivered almost made feel as though I was the Landlord. Janelle is honest, fair and clearly out to satisfy all parties she serves. Don’t make her your Agent. Make her your friend. You won’t be disappointed.

Always kept a smile and been responsive to requests and issues that concerned the apartment

Janelle, you have been such a great asset to the property that it will be hard to replace you. Despite all the ongoings you have always kept a smile and been responsive to requests and issues that concerned the apartment. I like to thank you for that! You know I have lived in apartments for 35 years and seen lots and lots and you were a breath of fresh air and gave Property Management a respectable name.

I have no hesitation in recommending Janelle

For the last forty years I have interviewed, employed and observed a large number of employees. During my time at East Quays Apartments I have come to know and respect Janelle both as a person and as a property manager. Janelle’s warm smile, friendly manner and ability to listen to residents concerns make it a pleasure to approach her regarding any issues one may have. I have no hesitation in recommending Janelle, I believe her personality and skills would be an asset to any business.
