Mike and Jill from Hawkes Bay left Vicky our property manager a fantastic Google Review:
"We rented a property through Vicky Harris as our Property Manager. We found Vicky was very thorough in all her dealings and provided comprehensive information on the state of the property both on entry and exit. Vicky kept us fully informed as to when her inspections were to happen etc. In this regard, we have recommended Vicky to several clients looking at using a rental manager to rent their investment properties. I would give Vicky as many stars as you can give."
