What our clients think about us

Thanks for finding us self managing at $600pw and you achieved $750pw. That’s why you’re the experts.

Craig Rinca, Kawana Property Owner

I find Property Only very professional and prompt in correspondence and letting me know all the ins and outs of what is happening.

Andrew Tarrant, Gympie Property Owner

We were so impressed when our Buderim investment property was vacated and leased again in the same day!

Chris & Louise Hewitte, Buderim Property Owners

The care for our property has meant we have finally found good long-term tenants. I’m not stressed about my property knowing that Property Only is managing things.

Barbara Clarke, Maroochydore Property Owner

My self-managed property was vacated and the girls had 8 possible tenants for me the following day and achieved an extra $50 a week rent. Inspection reports are thorough and I’m never following up. Professional outfit who can have a giggle at the same time.

Matt McKeown, Cootharaba Property Owner

What I like most is the sense of being a valued client. The communication is good, the invoicing efficient and the attitude positive and can-do.

Sharon & Dennis Cornwell, Yandina Property Owners
