The Adelaide real estate agency has three offices across the South Australia capital, and the company’s founder Anthony Toop says they are like Google centres.

Each office has a gymnasium, a creche, hangout spots and a barbeque area. But instead of embracing the trend for hot desks, everyone has their own workspace.

Toop&Toop were ahead of the pack, and it established a software division 10 years ago.

“It is exponential,” Mr Toop said. “We have gone from one software engineer to five, six, seven, eight, and now we have nine.”

“The other thing that has happened in the software world, it is much quicker to program. In the early days, we had to write code for everything, and now it is like building blocks.”
