A Great Experience

Hi Tricia, Just wanted to thank you for making our last rental a great experience and thanks for all your help over the time we were renting. Couldn’t recommend you enough to others :)

I have been with First National for approximately five years without an issue, but then in August 2015 the inevitable happened whereby my rented house experienced the renter and hoarder from hell, to say the least. Being the landlord I was very concerned how this situation would play out. You can imagine my hesitation to approach the real estate concerning this issue and feared a confrontational discussion would develop. But I was pleasantly surprised. Through our many educational discussions, Tricia Dorratt explained to me all the legal proceedings that were available to ALL parties involved, including the pro’s and con’s. Through these thorough and at times lengthy discussions, a plan was developed to deal with the situation that was best for me as the Landlord. During the whole process I was listened to and helped at all times. Even to the point where Tricia not only handled all the Tribunal work but also took on the responsibility of the insurance paperwork as well, for which I am still grateful today. The true test of a Property Manager comes only into light when they are needed to represent you legally, because it is then that you realise that if they have not dotted the I’s and crossed the T’s exactly your chances of winning in court are greatly reduced. This past experience made me realise that every real estate company can be the greatest when things go right. BUT THE TRUE TEST OF AN EXCEPTIONAL REAL ESTATE AGENT IS WHEN THINGS GO WRONG. After all that has happened, Tricia Dorratt and Coastwide First National have totally renewed my faith in their organisation, hence I am still with them today! Thank you to all the team. Kind regards, Bruno

The service from start to finish has been excellent

I purchased a property through Coastwide First National and based on the great service I received I didn’t hesitate in asking them to manage my property. The service from start to finish has been excellent – advice regarding property preparation for tenants, sourcing suitable tenants and the ongoing management of the property. Tricia is the current Property Manager and I can’t fault her service and attention to detail. It is a pleasure dealing with her.
