What our customers say

See all

I have been renting a house for the last six months on Macleay Island and Marianne has been my Real estate Tenancy agent during that time. Marianne has been extremely prompt with any house repairs and will always make a call to me after the repair man has been and gone to check on the work been carried out. As a Tenant I have really enjoyed coming into the agency and paying my rent in person because Marianne is always willing to have a chat & see how I am doing (in fact all the ladies are great to chat with) I have the highest praise for Marianne because she has always been so nice & polite and professional & courteous towards myself & my son. Even today as I write this testimony I needed Marianne to sign a reference for my next application for a house in Ipswich; i arrived at the office unannounced and Marianne stopped what she was doing for me and filled out the reference I needed on the spot (with a smile on her dial 😊 Believe it or not I’m going to miss my Tenancy agent, Marianne; & the “Only reason” I’m leaving is because my son’s schooling needs.

I would like to convey my thanks for being the perfect property manager for me. Over the last 12 months there have been numerous times when I have made requests of you and each time you have been able to solve any issues I have had in a timely manner. Not once did I need to re contact you to see how things were going. You have always kept me informed of any maintenance issues which I appreciate greatly. As I do not live on the island and am unable to visit very often I rely on you to be my contact person, to be my eyes on the island. I was most impressed when I requested you to drive me past my house so I could have a look. I hadn't been there since the road was sealed. It was no problem for you at all and you made me feel very welcome when I walked into the office - Almost as if I had known you for years! You are the type of person I need to be my property manager. Thank you very much and I hope you will be with the company for many years to come.

Since we started renting our home in August 2017 we have had no problems with your company nor staff. We have always found Gwen or Marianne to be willing to do what was required if we had any repairs or maintenance and reply as soon as the owner contacts them. It is good to have one person to contact now (Marianne) as she is always very pleasant to deal with. The only trouble I find is getting the Tradesmen to do their work if they were only 30% as good as your staff all would flow better.
