I wanted to send you a short note. I am moving to Albany from an volunteer assignment in Timor-Leste and have been working with Sharilyn Dekker to try an organise a rental property.

Sharilyn's professionalism and assistance has been exemplary. I have some properties that I rent out myself and in all my years I have never come across such a client centred, calm, positive and "can do" person.

I thought, as the Managing Director (which I discovered on your web-site), that you would like to know some positive feedback from a happy customer. Thank you for the extra support and assistance to help what could have been a very difficult task!

We originally appointed Kyle to sell our block and although he was only new to the job, we were extremely impressed by his professionalism and knowledge. We then changed our mind and decided to build on our block and got Kyle around to our house for an appraisal. We signed up and within a few days Kyle contacted us with a potential buyer, they visited the property to put in an offer! Within a week!

The market research provided to us was outstanding, and Kyle kept us abreast of everything that was happening. Delays were communicated and he really stepped us through the process. He is professional, fun and a very hard worker. I have pretty high expectations and I was not disappointed once. You cant go wrong getting Kyle to sell your property.

Lisa has been our agent for almost ten years.  She has consistently provided exceptionally thorough, professional and personable service since our first interaction.  It is rare to find a person so committed to her work and someone that always goes beyond what is required to support her clients. We are grateful for her service and cannot recommend her highly enough!

Always kept us up to date & informed, never a problem to show us a house, very helpful & informative on purchasing the property that suited us. A very nice person to deal with. Many thanks Jeremy for helping us find our new home in Albany and giving us honest advice. This is invaluable when new to a town.

Lisa was our property manager for more than 3 years and she has been amazing! I back this claim with the following:

1. Requests for maintenance were acted promptly
2. Feedback on inspections were communicated clearly and within timeframe.
3. Returns calls/emails on times promised.
4. Ending our lease was even easier with her negotiations with the owners, saving us money as she made sure we did not have to spend on replacing things that do not need one.

We highly recommend her, and if I have an investment property I would never hesitate to to get it managed by her.

Thank you very much Lisa. Keep up the good work!

I would like to thank the team at Merrifield, and particularly yourself Lisa for the fantastic job you have done for us in managing Eleanor Street these past years. You really made it so easy, and gave us great confidence that the house was being looked after and any issues raised and addressed asap. I also appreciated your patience with the paperwork (and my abysmal record keeping)!!

I just wanted to take the time to commend Kylie on her thorough and professional service that she provides to me as an owner.

Kylie manages my property in Yakamia and being that I live in Perth, I have 100% pure trust in the fact that she has the best interests of both myself and my tenant at heart.

Her inspection reports are very thorough and nothing is left unnoticed.  The timeliness that she gets the reports back to me are very prompt and she follows up any outstanding issues with either myself or the tenant until it has been rectified.  If I ever have concerns or questions, it is never an issue and she is very fast at following up my queries.

I have other investment properties and I wish that my property manager for them was as sensational as Kylie.

I certainly would not hesitate to ever recommend Kylie to anyone that is looking for a quality Property Manager.

I am writing this letter as a humble note of appreciation for the outstanding ongoing property management service provided by Merrifield, in particular by your property manager, Ashton James.

Cindy and I have been in the property investment arena since 1992 with properties in Australia and South Africa. We know how unforgiving the property management role can be.

Our properties in Albany certainly aren’t an easy portfolio to manage yet Ashton is consistently looks after our best interests yet, at the same time, manages to keep the tenants happy.

She has an outstanding knowledge of the tenancy rights – which helps us with direction, and her thoroughness with repairs keeps the tradies honest saving us unnecessary costs!

I would love to recommend Merrifield to anyone who needs an extremely capable property manager in the future. Keep up the good work.

Wanted to pass positive feedback on Colleen with the work she did on our behalf to get our rental returned to us in such a clean and presentable condition. Colleen acted in a strong decisive timely controlled manner and never wavered from the right course and we can't speak more highly of they way she handled things always keeping us informed and in the end the house is as we expected but im sure without her efforts it could have been much different.

It's refreshing to deal with a sales rep who is not pushy and who is up front and honest with information.  These qualities together with a willingness to be available for a chat (whether it be in person, on the phone or via email) as Jeremy was, are far more effective at building rapport, winning trust and ultimately winning the transaction.
