Testimonials

"I was recommended to Melbourne Real Estate two years ago when I decided to rent out my house in the Box Hill area. I could not be happier with the service that they provide and I was so happy with the service of Stephen Fitzsimon, I recommended him and MRE to some friends who are now also using them due to their professionalism and great service. Can highly recommend them."

Regards, Stui James

"From the start Melbourne Real Estate assisted me in buying and managing my first investment property. Their project listings in prime locations are always top of the tree and I have recently bought my second investment. With the support offered at Melbourne Real Estate, their is no need to engage another agent. I highly recommend this agent as the service is always prompt and friendly and the advice is accurate. The communication from my Property Manager, Stephen, is constant and nothing is ever too much trouble."

Regards, Mark Goudie

"Beautiful classic environment, efficient management team with updated new technology in place. As a long term client of Property Manager Stephen, I am very impressed with the quality service he delivered and the way he looked after the property as if his own. Highly recommended to anyone who is considering finding a responsible property manager."

Regards, Shelly Sun

Stephen Fitzsimon & Michael Tynan from Melbourne Real Estate gave me exceptional service! Stephen's positive attitude and efficiency was second-to-none. He was always reachable, acted swiftly and gave sound advice. Plus he got me $400/wk more in rental than what my 'local' real estate agent quoted me. With nothing to gain for himself, Michael Tynan offered me local advice and helped me assess the market place when looking for my new home. These guys are professional, personable and always on the ball. Highly, highly recommended.

Regards, Natashia Ting

Initially I was hesitant about using Melbourne Real Estate (“MRE”) for the rental of my new acquisition of an apartment in Mater Street, Collingwood (YOU & I) as I have been using another agency for my other properties. However, in my dealings with Stephen Fitzsimon, he has been simply terrific, reasonable in discussing terms of engagement, getting my apartment rented out on the very day I signed up, extremely responsive to my emails assisting in dealing with all matters relating to the apartment. I would definitely use MRE again.

Regards, Richard Lim

Melbourne Real Estate has been looking after my property for the past 6 years. All these years it has been rented out with not even a day being vacant. They got us good tenants. They have good and reliable staffs like Stephen and Zac.
When Stephen got promoted, we were worried that we might not get another
good Manager to serve us.
We are glad that Zac, our present Manager is good too. He is reliable, efficient and hard working. He goes all ways to solve a problem. When we think a quote is too high, he does not hesitate to get another quote for us. He replies our emails promptly. (We are from Singapore).
Zac is great. Hope he can get a raise. We would be sad if he gets promoted like Stephen, but would be very happy for him.

Regards, Pearly & Rosalind

Melbourne Real Estate is the only property manager I have ever engaged. I was introduced to them about 10 years ago when the company was relatively small. In my early meetings I was impressed by the professionalism and the service orientation of the company and I gave them the go ahead. The service provided by Stephen Fitzsimon initially and subsequently by Leigh Edwards has been beyond what I expected. The most important aspect to any property management service is proactivity and being customer oriented. MRE has demonstrated this in all my dealings with the company. I have recommended them to many of my customers and colleagues and have no hesitation in giving them a huge tick of approval.

Regards, Rod Smith

Stephen and Brenton are professional Property Managers.
They had taken on my property from a previous real estate company, marketed my apartment with outstanding photos and video AND had a tenant signed up, all in under 10 business days!
I cannot express my appreciation and gratitude enough! You guys are remarkable!!
5 Stars are not enough, 10++++++ !

Regards, Melissa Merro

We found Melbourne Real Estate through a google search and I am thankful we did.
We switched Property managers as we were unhappy with our current managers, we did a lot of research and even though they charged a little more then companies out there Stephen at Melbourne Real Estate took the time to explain to us why they were worth the extra investment and I can gladly say they have delivered on their promise.
Unfortunately they inherited some issues from our previous managers which Jessica dealt with efficiently and professionally and kept me updated of the progress.
They also found suitable tenants within two weeks of taking over the property at a significantly higher rental return than it had been previously rented at. Again keeping me informed the whole way through, how the open inspections went, who was looking at the property etc etc.

Overall I would have to say we are extremely happy with the service provided by Stephen and Jessica so far and would highly recommend there services.

Regards, Natasha Longo

Thank You Stephen and team for a great job in Pre and Post Settlement Inspection .

MRE attention to detail is outstanding .
Stephen Fitzsimon was professional in selecting a suitable Tenant for my property .

I switched over to Melbourne Real Estate to lease my apartment in Richmond. From the get-go, Stephen and Jay made the process very easy and un-stressful! They provided me with regular updates of inspections and managed to secure a tenant not long after the property went up! I can't speak highly enough of Melbourne Real Estate.

Regards, Mala Prasanna

We were really happy about the professional service and attention to detail provided by Stephen and his team. MRE managed to get a good tenant for our new property in Doncaster within two weeks. I recommend MRE without hesitation for anyone looking for a real estate service.

Jay Jacob-Green, Stephen Fitzsimon and the Melbourne Real Estate team recently leased our apartment and we have been thrilled with the outcomes achieved. Their marketing of the property, professionalism and regular communication with us were second to none and resulted in quickly finding quality tenants at a weekly rate above our expectations. We are looking forward to long term relationship with Melbourne Real Estate!

Regards, Angus Kerr

I would like to compliment Jay Jacob Green for his hard work and the communication that he has provided during the process of securing a tenant for my tenant. His politeness and willingness to listen are great attributes and have made me feel very comfortable during this time. I feel very happy having my apartment in the hands of MRE and Jay. I would also like to thank Stephen as well. Stephen took considerable time with me in the beginning with his viewpoint on the market and he was very reassuring.

Regards, Dee S

We have been with MRE for more than 2 years now and have a number of apartments which are managed by Laura Scott - who is absolutely fantastic! Laura's professionalism and positive attitude makes property management look easy - which it isn't. MRE has plenty of resources in the background and support Laura to take care of everything that concerns the leasing of our apartments, including their ability to attract great tennants within a couple of weeks of advertising. Thanks also to Stephen Fitzsimon who gave me a lot of important advice on the leasing of apartments when I had first contacted MRE.

Regards, Robert Morgan

MRE has provided impeccable service. From day one, Stephen and Jessica made this unfamiliar process very simple, easy to understand and care free. Their expertise and professionalism gave me absolute confidence. Samantha is wonderful and found great tenants in record time and made sure I was updated throughout the entire process. I could not have asked for a better company to manage my property and I have already recommended MRE to my family and friends.

Regards, Georgie Doyle

The service we have received from MRE is best in class and above expectations.
We are very delighted to have professional agents like MRE looking after our property needs.
Special mention to Steven who has been instrumental in setting the tone to this relationship with MRE. From day 1 I have had great experience and have had prompt response on each occasion.
The staff have been able to understand our needs and have also taken care of them personally.
Zac has been prompt with updates and has been helpful with this venture.
Looking forward to creating more connections with new investments.
Please pass my congratulations to Steve and team

Regards, Harshna and Animesh

Amazing service and dedication from Stephen and Catherine. Leasing our property through Melbourne Real Estate was the easiest, smoothest transaction possible. Their impeccable attention to detail, prompt communication and friendly yet professional manner have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend.

Regards, Renee Wijesinghe

I have had the pleasure to assist in the recruitment side for MRE and can honestly say I have met such amazing people. Tim, Stephen, Adriarna & the team have always been friendly and professional. They have built an awesome culture and environment for staff. I can see why the staff love working at MRE.

Regards, Hollie Caldis

I have been very happy with the outstanding level of services offered by the team at Melbourne Real Estate. From the very beginning when I first contact MRE to when my new Melbourne apartment was leased out, the entire process has been painless, hassle-free and last but not least pleasant. I love the convenience of having an iPhone app to see all details pertaining to my apartment.

Simply put, this is property management done phenomenally right. I'd trust Steve, Zac and their teams in a heartbeat to manage another Melbourne property if I had one. (Note: I am an overseas investor.)

Regards, Minh Toan Nguyen

An agency I have used since 2005 to manage multiple properties. Have received great service from Leigh Edwards and Stephen Fitzsimon and cannot fault their service. Excellent communication and I use their App 24/7 to download my statements. Highly recommend.

Regards, Natasha Waldron

We are very happy to have our property managed by MRE. Stephen Fitzsimon presented MRE services to us very professionally and provided invaluable strategic advice regarding letting the property. Samantha Bolton manages the property and she is always professional and effective in both addressing our needs and working with the tenants.

Regards, Geoff Shields

We delighted with MRE services, particularly with Patricia Khalil, she is very prompt, and very well informed with what is going on with our property, her service is top notched. we are Glad that we are associated with Stephen & Melbourne Real Estate team.

Regards, Roshan Ameen

I engaged the services’s of Melbourne Real Estate to help with the task of managing 5 residential properties and 3 commercial properties that I inherited. Both Stephen Fitzsimon and Samantha Brownlee worked tirelessly to get my properties running smoothly again. Their skills and knowledge were invaluable and included re-marketing vacant properties, increasing under market rental figures, arranging trades and repairs, identifying non compliant risks to tenants, cosmetic updates to increase rental income and so much more. No problem was ever an issue and their constant communication and honesty made for what was an overwhelming task manageable and achievable.

Regards, Bridget Waddell

I switched to MRE after a disappointing run with a recommended property agent. Initially I was concerned with MRE's management fee which is one the highest in Melbourne. I was assured of MRE's quality of service. Today I have no regrets. MRE had lived up to their reputation. A big shout out to the professionalism of Stephen Fitzsimon and Dannielle Hitchen for taking great care of me and my property. More importantly they have proven themselves to be fair and honest people and totally reliable. I have complete peace of mind.
