What our clients say about the Buy West Property Management Team

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

I have been a client of Ray White Property Management Te Atatu for over 12 years.

I have always found their service to be of a high professional standard and considering I live in Perth, Western Australia, it is very easy to communicate with them via e-mail and always get prompt replies to any queries.

They are always on top of any maintenance issues and get things done in a timely and efficient manner.

I have always had the highest standard of tenants and appreciate the processes Ray White have in place to ensure my property is well looked after.

I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a ‘tried and true’ property management service.

Dear Natalie and the team at Buy West Property Management,

Ray White Buy West Property Management has managed my rental property for the past 4 years.

As I am not living in New Zealand, I have relied on them to keep everything running smoothly.  During this time they have not let me down.

They have diligently and professionally, organised maintenance, liaised with the tenants, coordinated inspections and accordingly made sound recommendations in order to keep the house in good condition. They have also ensured that the rent is up to date, organised rent increases when due, marketed the property as a rental and placed new tenants when needed and kept accurate records that I could access for my accountant even 2 years down the track!. The on-line system is certainly an excellent facility for accessing records.

When I decided to sell the property they worked in conjunction with the salesperson to ensure the tenants rights were up-held, whilst still ensuring access for buyers so it could be sold.

I didn’t have to worry about my property as I knew it was being taken care of and that Buy West was ensuring the tenant and I were fulfilling our respective obligations under the Residential  Tenancies Act.

For stress free property management I highly recommend Buy West Property Management – they are very professional and their staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable in their field.

Regards

Geoffrey Harvey.

Dear Diane,
I just would like to submit my grateful thanks to your company, and that Gibson Lee has been a great property manager in all the aspects of managing my father’s property in .
Around mid of last year, we were so struggling dealing with our previous property manager from another company.  At that point of time, tenant was in arrears of a total over $2000. We was referred to talk to Gibson by a friend, who is a real estate agent working for Barfoot and Thompson. After two meetings with Gibson at our home and the Ray White office, we decided to transfer the management to Ray white Te Atatu office .
By experiencing the dramatic different level service from Gibson for last four months, I am so glad that I made the right decision. Gibson has been so helpful and experienced to deal with previous arrears owned by tenants, and even more, he has chased back over $3000.00 overcharged management fee from the previous company for the management of previous two years.
I would certainly recommend Gibson Lee to my friends and families when they need property management service. 
Thanks again for all the efforts.
Kind regards
Kelvin Gao

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

My husband and I are thoroughly enjoying our lives without any worries whatsoever as Natalie McKeown has taken care of the entire needs of our rental property.

From finding good tenants, all maintenance needs, care of the rent being paid and absolutely every need you could think Natalie has taken care of everything.   Natalie has been so easy to deal with in every way.

My husband and I have owned and managed several rental properties over the years, some of whom we took care of ourselves and then moved on to using property managers as rentals can be very stressful as we found out.   We have used other property managers over the years but we have found Natalie to be excellent and are thrilled with the service we have received from Natalie.

Regards,

Annette Richards

Vlad Muhin recently got us a great tenant for our property. Vlad’s service was absolutely first class and very professional. He had a lot of good advice and suggestions. He was focused on getting us the best tenant not just pushing the first person who came along in the door – if he was not keen on a potential tenant he said so to us. We would definitely recommend Vlad – he put a lot of time into our rental.

To whom it may concern:

Natalie has been our family’s Property Manager for the last 18 months. Natalie seems to be well connected and is able to secure quality tenants within a short time frame. When we were new to property management, Natalie guided us through the process with ease and only involved us if essentially needed- taking care of everything else. I also note she was patient with our several (some repeated) questions and has been quick in responding to emails and calls- providing us with good service each time. As a result I have directly suggested Natalie to two of my close friends, who have also been very impressed by Natalie and their business interactions with her. I have no problem recommending Natalie as an excellent Property Manager.

Thank you, Darren Mendonsa

To Whom it may concern:

Natalie McKeown has been my property manager since 2008.  Natalie has great communication skills, always keeping me informed of the status of my property.  She has organized numerous repairs & improvement work at my property, she made insurance claims and met with various people on my behalf including insurance assessors, tradespeople, valuers, local Council and real estate salespeople.  Natalie organized for my house to be put on the market for sale, and after I decided not to sell it, she rented it to great tenants.  I find her knowledgeable, reliable, professional, organized and an excellent property manager.  She has a great knowledge of Tenancy Law and all aspects of property management which is very important to myself as a property owner.  As I am not in New Zealand I rely on Natalie to take care of my investment property and have no hesitation in recommending her as a property manager.
