    I just wanted to send you a quick email today letting you know how amazing India has been. I moved to Brisbane City from the Gold Coast 8 months ago now and she helped me to find a place to rent (cathedral place at goths street) as well as being an amazingly awesome property manager. I did have to break my lease unfortunately due to the loss of my job however India remained very supportive & helpful in all aspects. She is definitely an asset to Living Here Property Management and I hope she gets the recognition she deserves. A big thank you to all the hard working staff their as you have all been so friendly.

    Eadan was there to help every step of the way. Nothing was too hard, and he saw to every last detail. He is also very polite and well mannered. I would definitely give Eadan an 11 out of 10; he is perfect in his role.

  • Peter & Katinka Quinn, Landlords

    We recently rented our house through Living Here Property Management Teneriffe, an agency we have used several times over the past couple of years. We have always been happy with the service provided by this organisation, as we were on this occasion.

    Our first meeting with our agent, Eaden Hockings, helped put our minds at ease about timing and promotional issues and we decided on the spot to be guided by his suggestions. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised by the outcomes.

    Eaden approaches his job with a confidence and focus that is a credit to him and his company. He promised a lot and delivered on everything he said he was going to do, down to details, which is very comforting when dealing with a new agent.

    When our house rented on second inspection for a price higher than our expectations, we were clearly delighted personally and grateful also to Eaden and his team for the professional and committed way they conduct themselves.

    We wish Eaden all the best for what we are sure will be a bright future
