What our clients say
Dear Heather, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance with the sale of our property earlier this year. My only regret is that as I have moved to Brazil, the sale of my investment property marks the end of one of the best business relationships that I have experienced in Australia. From the time that you first helped me rent a property in Canberra many years ago, I have been nothing but satisfied with the service and effort that Badenoch Real Estate has offered me. The reason that I chose to appoint your office as the agents for my rental property was based on the meticulous way that your staff cared for the property that I rented from you. Although I had many offers from other agents to act on my behalf when I purchased my investment property in Canberra, I wanted the security and knowledge that my property would be cared for as if I was living in it. In my mind, yours was only real estate agency that proved capable to do this and you have never made me regret my decision. It was very easy and reassuring to leave it matters in the hands of your staff. Similarly, when I decided to sell my property, I turned to Badenoch Real Estate and the service was just as I expected. The property sold very quickly and your staff was again extremely helpful. Even though I am on the other side of the world, I still felt reassured and the communication was excellent throughout the process. I felt compelled to write and thank you and your staff for your efforts and assistance over the years. When I return to Australia and/or decide to invest in property again, rest assured that I will be looking to Badenoch for help. Yours sincerely
Dear all at Badenoch I would like to thank all of you for making the rental and sale of my unit at Kippax so easy and trouble free. I do appreciate your high standard of work, always keeping me informed at all stages. As a first time property investor you helped me so much. I was surprised and delighted to come home and find your fabulous hamper waiting for me. I would like to thank you so much for this. I haven’t had such a lovely surprise for a long time. Again, thank you for looking after everything so well.
Dear Symon, Heather and the Badenoch team I would like to extend a big 'thanks greatly' for the professional and always friendly service provided with regards to managing both the rental and sale of my unit in Braddon. Being new to the market of owning an investment property I felt very unsure as to who I could trust with managing the rental for me. Fortunately, I was referred to your agency by some closed friends as a 'highly recommended' due to the reliable, consistent and friendly service always provided by Badenoch Real Estate. With great relief, I quickly found they were right as the reliable support, assistance and guidance provided seemed always exceptional giving me enormous peace of mind. * The points I particularly would like to highlight are; * The professional and friendly service * All information and updates were provided in a timely manner * Repairs and faults were repaired quickly and without hassle * All fiscal issues were managed in a timely manner * The scope for preferred tenancy of the rental property was of a high standard * Sale of the property appeared effortless and seamless (for me) Without hesitation I highly recommend Symon in sales, Heather in property management and the rest of the Badenoch Real Estate team. Again thanks one and all!!!!!
To the Prospective Badenoch Client, I have had a relationship with Badenoch's for over 15 years, either as a renter, a property owner and recently, a property seller. My dealings with the team (in particular Heather, Symon, Natalie & Jayne) from day one have been nothing but productive, whether it be a request to them and their immediate response to the situation or how well they managed my property and eventual sale of that property. I sold my townhouse in Melba the 1st showing, which in the current real estate climate was simply amazing. Add to this fact that our townhome sold for $8k above asking price !!! Both Symon and Natalie were very informative on what, we as sellers, would sell our home. My advice to the prospective seller is to listen to what they tell you you should do, and follow the advice exactly to maximise your chances of selling. I can't recommend them enough for all your property needs.
Hi Heather I wish to thank you and your team for outstanding management of my property over 3 1/2 years. You came highly recommended, giving you the job for this very important task was one of the best decisions I have made in recent years. I have now moved into the property myself and find myself frequently being grateful for the condition in which it was handed over to me. The way in which you have streamlined your business is working well from the point of being a Landlord and even after our agreement was ended your staff have handled a couple of requests from me very obligingly. Cheers
Badenoch RE has been managing my property for the last six years. In that time I have not had one single problem with tenants, or releasing the property. Badenoch have always produced “Top Rent Dollar” and vacancy time frames have not been more than seven days between tenants. Most of the time tenants resigned the property for another 12 months. All of this was done with a minimal of fuss as Badenoch managed the property proactively. Since this time, I have brought several properties. These properties were not in the ACT so I couldn’t use Badenoch RE as my Property Mangers. Most of these properties had high vacancy rates, and large numbers of tenant problems. It is at this time I found out how efficient and cost effective Badenoch are. Badenoch RE has given me those 2 things that I am after in a Real Estate Manager:- “Maximum Rent with Zero Hassles!” I recently ask Symon to sell my property, given that they have done such a great job with managing my property. Symon gave me all the information I was after regarding the Canberra RE market and my property. Symon sold my property within 5 days of it being on the market. He also achieved a price that was $5000 more than my requested price. I would have no hesitation in referring Symon to anyone selling their property.
To Whom it may concern Badenoch Real Estate managed our rental property from 2007 - 2010. Their rental management on our behalf was efficient, comprehensive and effective. When we decided to sell, the sales team effectively managed minor works in a prompt and efficient manner. Badenoch helped achieved a sale within one week of opening at a price that exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Badenoch for rental management and property sales. Yours Sincerely,
We settled on the sale of our two-storey Harrison townhouse in April 2014, so the dust has truly settled since then and we can review our working relationship with Badenoch Real Estate in the cold light of day. Firstly, we went to Badenoch three or four years ago to ask them to manage the property. We were initially a bit hesitant because they charged more than some other property managers, but a work colleague told us the difference was worth it. So it proved to be. I recall to this day the first meeting onsite with Heather Badenoch, who said she expected properties to be managed to the same standard as her own. And that’s how it turned out. Whenever we checked the home, it was in first-class order. The management team (we dealt with an always courteous Chloe Riles) was responsive and delivered what we needed – updates on maintenance items, ensuring approvals were received before proceeding with jobs, as well as the all-important end-of-year financial reports and advice. When we came to selling the property, we again had some trepidation about selling through the same agency as managed the property. However, we need not have worried. Symon Badenoch gave us accurate and professional marketing advice and we emerged from the experience with a very satisfactory, stress-free outcome. Importantly, even after the property was sold and commissions paid, Symon was happy to follow through on an erroneous electricity bill we received. Overall, our relationship with Badenoch was always professional, courteous and satisfying and we would have no hesitation in highly recommending Badenoch Real Estate for home management and sale.

We'd be remiss not to drop you this note regarding your management of our property during past years. Jan and I visited the townhouse on Monday and we were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness and presentation of the property - so essential when you're putting it on the market! I recall Heather saying all those years ago that she felt properties managed by Badenoch should be maintained like they were her own home - and that comment was good enough for me. Maintaining and managing properties is an exacting business; we just wanted you to know we've appreciated all of your efforts - and, of course, your courtesy throughout. Regards, Jan and John
Dear Heather Thank you for managing my mother’s property at Wybalena Grove Cook for the past three years. You and your team have been exemplary property managers. The property was leased quickly, to good tenants and kept in very good condition. Communication from Badenoch Real Estate was always timely, professional and friendly. It was a pleasure to do business with you. All the best Stephen Hunter
