About Us

Launched in 2010, SpaceFinder is now trusted by the industry as an authority in educational space. Over the past decade we have placed 1,000s of clients into real estate that has worked for their business.  We handle millions of dollars of 9b commercial leases each year and work as an advocate for our clients. We ensure their real estate meets their business needs and not the other way around.


SpaceFinder was born out of the vented frustration from years of experiencing the highs and lows of business.

Founders Andrew & Vickie Johnson have experienced the lows of poor real estate decisions (lengthy, costly leases) and the highs of real estate success (great value, good location and perfect timing). They are now well aware  that often the initial real estate decision is fundamental to determining the eventual success of a business.

After swimming with one too many sharks they launched SpaceFinder to combat:

  • Having limited real estate options

  • Confusing & inconsistent venue information

  • Inflated & non-disclosed pricing

  • A lack of transparency

  • Dealing with multiple parties, each with their own agendas


Our accolades:

–  20 Years industry experience

1,000’s of RTO’s space-sharing placements

6 years of success in meeting ASQA application requirement

Multiple award winning business in entrepreneurial, sustainability &
innovation awards


"Training SpaceFinder have been amazing to work with. From the beginning they were friendly, professional and well informed about the rental opportunities available for my RTO. As our search progressed they worked hard to accommodate our exact needs and provide a solution that worked inside our budget. The whole team were always friendly and kept us up to date with regular communication. We will definitely be contacting them again the next time we need to find a training space."
Will Flesher
"I have been working with the awesome team at Training SpaceFinder since 2015, sending many of my clients to them to get the support they need to setup or grow their RTO. The feedback from clients has always been positive and the service impeccable. The team's ability to support you with a number of options has made securing a premise easy and cost-effective, not restricting growth and not sending you broke before you start operating. The team shares the owners' desire to help others, their passion for business and entrepreneurship and understanding the constraints of a regulatory environment means they are the Number 1 go to for securing a 9B compliant location. It's been a long term relationship that will continue to grow."

"Professionalism, commitment, and fantastic result delivery these are three words to characterise SpaceFinder. We engaged SpaceFinder when we felt concerned about the prospect of finding the right 9b approved property that suit our business needs and compliance requirements. Our challenge was to get it done within a relatively short period of time, with minimal efforts and effectively. There was no room for mistakes. SpaceFinder absolutely nailed it making it easy and very straightforward as 1,2,3. We were impressed with the agency’s knowledge of the property market and government requirements, and found them highly professional, friendly and easy to deal with. They guided us through the entire sub-letting process addressing any questions or concerns. SpaceFinder successfully managed and overlooked every aspect of negotiations/communication keeping us in the loop and representing our interests to deliver the best possible results. We felt confident and supported at all times! We’ve been using SpaceFinder’s services in the past 3 years, and I would definitely recommend them for any RTO’s whether they are prospective sub-lessees or lessors. SpaceFinder, thank you for your ongoing support and immaculate service!"

“I have been using Training SpaceFinder for the past 3 years and the team has been absolutely fantastic! We use venues around Australia and they are always really efficient in getting me the best price and location available and making sure additional extras like data projector, whiteboard, Wi-Fi are included in the packages as well as room requirements to meet our compliance requirements. I would highly recommend their services to any RTO or business looking for training venues.”
