I had recently engaged the services of First National Rochedale, seeing that they are based close to my investment property. As an interstate investor, it is important that I had property managers who are my "eyes on the ground". And Frances and Caroline are just that! They had been excellent in assisting me with a rather difficult transition from another agency and due to their keen eye to details, had discovered issues in the property which had required immediate and lengthy repairs. Their friendliness and flexibility on delivering their services goes beyond what I had expected (being a property investor for over a decade). As an interstate owner of an investment property, I had truly appreciated all of their assistance and services, and most notably their advice. Anyone would enjoy this team's friendly and efficient services. I now trust my investment with this team for sure!
