Tiffany the property pooch cannot get enough of the camera – and she’s selling homes too.
Making her way into all of her owner’s real estate listings – which sometimes resemble a Where’s Wally? book – Tiffany can be found dressed in various outfits, striking a pose.
Her owner and Queensland’s RE/MAX United Vision real estate agent Tracey Ashley teamed up with Tiffany, a shih tzu cavalier cross, about two years ago when she realised the difficulties of finding pet-friendly homes.
Since then they have become one of Australia’s most unique property partnerships.
“Tiffany knows when it’s time to go to work and she loves being in front of the camera,” Tracey says.
“We get her to dress in the appropriate way to represent the property. If it’s an exclusive-type home, then we’d dress her up like a princess, that sort of thing,” she says.

And five-year-old Tiffany loves coming to work, often tagging along to open homes to meet with potential buyers.
“It really makes people’s day and they get a good laugh out of it,” Tracey says.
“We’ve had so much positive feedback, even from people who aren’t looking to buy, they just love looking through all the photos.”

But it isn’t all just for fun; Tiffany is actually helping to sell the homes.
“We had two similar properties hit the market, one of them didn’t have Tiffany in the photos, and the other did. Tiffany’s ad had double the hits on it, and the home sold for more than the other too.”
Although Tiffany is mostly well-behaved, there are times in the past when she has forgotten she was at work.
“One time she nearly ate a client’s dinner that was left out. Luckily she didn’t, but she was sniffing it getting ready to,” Tracey says.
“Another time, when we first started bringing her into homes, we were feeding her a lot of treats, she had diarrhoea in the backyard.”
