I am very happy with the rental Property Management team at Gary J Smith and will continue the excellent relationship until my property is sold at a later date. Onesha the Property Manager was terrific. I went to the Gary J Smith office and had a meeting to discuss the new Tenant arrangement. I have had this same property managed for over 5 years with this management and was always well looked after; hence going back to have the unit rented by Gary J Smith once again. All information was received well and the marketing was put in place immediately. I had a new tenant within the week after advertising and the new tenant fitted my specifications exactly. Well done!

I found Simon Tait to be very helpful and caring during the sale of my Keswick property.  He was always available to take my phone calls and any concerns I may have had. I can’t thank him enough for what he achieved for me. In my opinion you are so lucky to have a sales consultant who really goes that extra to help you achieve that little extra when the going gets tough.

Alex did an outstanding job taking a potentially daunting task for me and making it easier and simpler than I could have imagined… I went from having a money pit to a tenanted rental property in less than two weeks… Her friendly and personalised approach made me feel supported and cared for. No question was “too stupid” and she was never too busy or unavailable to help me understand the process from beginning to end. I’m absolutely kicking myself for not partnering with Alex and Gary J Smith earlier…I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to friends and family in the future. Indeed, if we ever have a second rental property on our hands, Alex will be our first port of call.

Words such as ‘thorough’, ‘clear thinking’ and ‘planning’ – there were no false stories or misleading statements – the task of sale was clear and concise. Craig, you obviously have sound communication and negotiating skills.

Onesha was extremely helpful in finding me a suitable tenant. Her professional method and her attention to detail really impressed me. She went out of her way to explain many of the procedures and the necessary regulations, even advising me of the price to set. After each open inspection she informed me of any particular things that I needed to know about. She was extremely efficient and prompt to reply to any emails that I sent, regarding any particular issues concerning the property. I feel totally at ease knowing that Onesha is in charge of the running of my premises, therefore I will highly recommend her to any of my friends who wish to find a property manager.

Our experience with Onesha was exceptional.

Our experience with Onesha was exceptional. Onesha provided us with excellent service in the management of our investment unit. We could not have managed without her. The result was our property was tenanted within a week of settlement. Onesha managed all of this without any problems. We would not hesitate to recommend Onesha, and found her to be a pleasure to do business with.
