A bit about us

Magic Rentals began as a private investment company that specialised in buying property, adding value through renovation and development, then selling at a profit. Thanks to our early roots as property investments, we really do understand what’s important to property owners.

The founder of Magic Rentals is Tim Ellis. As an owner of multiple properties he became fed up with the quality of service he received from the real estate industry. He could do things differently … and a lot better!


So he started helping friends and family with managing their properties and from these small beginnings, the business has grown into what it is today.

We’re proud that we do things differently. Our staff are property investors too and we specialise in delighting our clients with a new level of service and professionalism. Our business is growing rapidly as a result of this commitment to excellence.

To make sure we can fully help property investors to maximise their returns we are a fully licensed real estate agency with the state of South Australia.

Tim Ellis - Managing Director

As a young automotive technician Tim’s passion for property investment was ignited at an early stage in his career. So to learn more about wealth creation he attended the University of Adelaide as a mature age student to eventually complete a Bachelor of Finance with a high distinction average. His degree focussed on financial analysis and mathematical financial modelling. That’s where he learned his wizardry with identifying great deals!

Tim worked for Ernst & Young Chartered Accountants in their Insolvency division before moving into a federal government department where he worked in debt collection for several years all the while building his own property investment portfolio.

In 2007 Tim went full time into running his own private renovation and development company before starting Magic Property Group now known as Magic Rentals in 2010.

Tim has personally owned over 25 investment properties and has been involved in many more projects with his clients. He continues to invest today.

Tim is a fully licensed Land Agent.
