What our clients say
Dear Heather, Symon and the Badenoch Team We are writing this letter to thank you all for the help and assistance that you office has given us over the last 12 months. You were very helpful when we needed a new agent to handle our Melba property to rent out. After a bad experience with our previous agent you put our minds at ease and made everything run very smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble form organizing tradesman to even picking up the keys from the previous agent for us. In June we approached you with regards to having to sell our property, with being in another state and unaware of the procedure involved you once again made our job much easier than expected. Symon could no have been more helpful and was always only a phone call or email away if we had any questions. It came time for the first open house and we were nervous about this and could not believe it when Symon called us to say that there were people that were very interested in the property. By the Monday morning following the open house we had a firm offer on our property and just could not believe how quickly and smoothly everything had gone. I cannot thank Symon enough for all his help and reassurance along the way. We have no hesitation in recommending the Badenoch Team, their professional manner which they handled our property, and the peace of mind they gave us was second to none.

We have been with Badenoch Real Estate now for over 10 years mainly through their property management. Through our investment property rental we found Heather Badenoch and her team fantastic to deal and as our agents allowed us to set it and forget. No matter what the problem was we always felt better after talking to Heather. More recently Symon and Lucia managed the sale of our two properties in Canberra. They made it easy to navigate through the maze of valuation, listing, advertising and marketing. Symon's experience and expertise in the Canberra market is second to none and we were very fortunate to have him in our corner. I have no hesitation in recommending Badenoch's for all real estate needs.
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 Heather, Symon and Team This is a belated THANK YOU for the enormous help you have given me over the past two years. From the first time of meeting with Heather at the Phillip apartment (due to the complete disaster through xxxxxx Real Estate) it was evident that here was a highly ethical and professional business entity in whom I could find complete trust. The effort in finding new tenants as well as cleaning, repair and maintenance in such a very short time was amazing. The tenants found were of such a high calibre it was disappointing to then leave to place Phillip on the market to enable my move to Sydney for work reasons. Then to sell Phillip, take on my residential property in Richardson for a short term rental as well as place it on the market continued to show the high degree of professionalism that makes up the team at Badenoch Real estate. Whilst I was going through the stress of end year accounts, training a new person and moving to Sydney to rent and then purchase within the space of 12 months I never once had to worry or travel back to Canberra to check on my properties as it was clearly evident from the ongoing communications that everything was well in hand. Many, many thanks again to each and everyone of you - and I will have no hesitation in recommending Badenoch Real Estate to anyone contemplating either renting or buying in Canberra. 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.
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.
Dear Heather I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for managing my 5 rental properties. When I initially signed up with your firm - you told me not to worry any more about renting and management of the properties - that they were your responsibility now and that I would not have to be concerned about that again. You have been absolutely true to your word. During the almost three years your firm have been managing my properties I have ceased my continual worry, confident that you would deal with whatever issue arises and not trouble me unless necessary. Whenever a property is nearing the end of the lease you have acted to ensure that a new tenant is on place before the expiry of the existing lease, if an issue arises with a tenant you deal with it immediately and, as requested by me, do not trouble me with the minutiae. I really think that Badenoch is the best real estate company in Canberra. Again, many thanks
Dear Heather Twenty years ago, when we were all a bit younger, we purchased an investment property from you. At that time you and your people were very professional and extremely helpful, all of which contributed to our decision to go ahead with the purchase. As it turned out the property proved be an outstanding investment. The making of that investment is attributable to your property management systems and the professionalism of your people. Your management team always ensured we had the very best tenants and the property was always maintained to the highest possible standards. Over the years my wife and I wrote to your organisation and congratulated them on their outstanding work plus what a pleasure it was dealing with them. Recently, your agency sold our investment unit for us and once again we are very, very satisfied customers. Your sales people are excellent and their commitment and service far exceeded our expectations. It is evident that your sales people are extremely knowledgable, very focussed and always ensure there are open and timely communications. The demonstrated team work of your sales people is highly commendable. We thank you and all the people at Badenoch that we have dealt with over many years for their enduring and stellar service. Christine and Craig
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
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!!!!!
