History

Metro Settlements has a longstanding history in the WA property settlement industry, having been established in 1982 by a group of prominent Perth real estate agents.

As a testament to both their loyalty and to Metro Settlements’ longevity, many of the founding agents still have links to the firm today.

For 22 years, from 1994 to 2016, Metro Settlements was headed by our previous Licensee, Lucia Woodard.  Under Lucia’s guidance, Metro Settlements’ repeat client base grew and the firm became the well-known Perth agency that it is today.

We pride ourselves on the fact that our clients come back to us, time and time again.

Over the years, we’ve seen many changes happen in Perth, in the WA property settlement industry and in technology.  Gone are the days when clerks had to line up at what was once DLI (Department of Land Information) and DOLA (Department of Land Administration), and is now Landgate, for title searches and rubber stamping documents at the State Revenue office.

Today, Metro Settlements utilises the most up-to-date conveyancing technologies to ensure that your settlement happens quickly and efficiently.
