Investment Property Services Manager
Dara's passion for Real Estate began in 1992 with the purchase of her first investment property at 21 years of age. Working part time while completing her Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Industrial Relations, she quickly realised the benefits of owning an investment property.
After completing her Bachelor of Arts Degree and Post Graduate Diploma in Total Quality Management, Dara pursued a career in gaining experience in account management, team management and business development roles...within the Telecommunications (RSL Communication), IT (Fujitsu Australia) and Press sector (Australian Associated Press).
Whilst working in the corporate sector, Dara was an avid property investor, gaining experience and knowledge of Property Management. Deciding to pursue a career in Real Estate, Dara aims to provide a new benchmark in service delivery for both landlords and tenants by combining skills gained throughout her career with her passion for investment properties.
“ I have had the pleasure of dealing with Dara as my property manager for my fathers house at Capalaba for the last 8 months. During this time the property had burst a water pipe in the bathroom vanity. Dara was quick to act, calling in plumbers and water damage experts to quickly take care of the situation to limit damage to the property. Dara had remained calm, collective and professional through out the entire ordeal. Her communication skills are second to none and her views and opinions are transparent and to point while taking into consideration legal requirements and client, customer rights and entitlements. I feel she is a credit to Raine & Horne Cleveland and a valued property manager. ”
“ We have had our rented property in Thornlands managed by Dara Gooley. We have been greatly impressed by the quality of her management service and meticulous attention to detail with our property. Please accept our appreciation for employing such a great human resource asset as Dara in your business. ”
“ As a person with a residential investment portfolio I am accustomed to utilising the services of property managers, however as my family recently relocated to Brisbane and needed to rent we gained a perspective from the tenants point of view as well. Over the past 6 months of dealing with Dara Gooley, we can only applaud her commitment to both the tenants and landlords needs, she is professional in all her interactions, deals in the facts and closes out issues as they arise. A clear communicator with a positive can do attitude, is a highly valuable asset in today’s residential real estate rental market. ”
“ We would like to thank you for looking after our property at Victoria Point. Your approach, is excellent. We appreciate all the hard work you put in. Time and effort. You are very easy to communicate with. Your attention to detail, your wonderful rapport with people & keeping us updated with Inspections. We are extremely happy with Dara Gooley and Raine & Horne Cleveland for managing our Investment property. ”
“ I have found Dara to be very professional and knowledgeable. She is one of the few rental agents I have dealt with that will get in a car to look at problems rather than try and manage it by email. She manages the property like it is her own. ”
“ We purchased our investment property through Raine & Horne sales, and being such a pleasant experience we approached the R&H Property Management team to discuss leasing arrangements. Again, the experience has been very satisfying. As this was our first foray into the investment property market we had plenty of questions and the team helped us with every aspect of the process. Their wealth of knowledge, from managing their own properties and others, really comes to the fore when we've asked for advise in particular situations. R&H Property Management have always found us many excellent tenants to choose from and keep us well informed about the property, this, coupled with the weekly, monthly and EOFY payment summaries and statement has made it immensely easy when dealing with our accountant. The team perform regular, and very detailed, property inspection reports and provide great feedback as to how the property is currently looking, along with any items that may need to be addressed in the future. It is with no hesitation we would recommend Raine & Horne Cleveland Property Management team to anyone considering renting a property. ”
“ Dara and the team at Raine & Horne have provided great service with good communication allowing me peace of mind that my property is being well managed. I would recommend them to others in the area looking for property management services. ”
“ I would like to take the opportunity of thanking you for looking after my rental property so well over the last 12 months. I would highly recommend you to any other property owner who is looking for a manager, as you have fulfilled your tasks above and beyond what my expectations were and I would also like to take the opportunity of asking you to manage the rest of my portfolio. ”
“ I am in somewhat of a unique position being both landlord and tenant through Raine & Horne Cleveland with Dara Goody as my Property Manager. My husband and I rent out our home in Redland Bay while we rent an acreage property in the same suburb to allow us to be closer to our horses. This has been our first experience as Landlords and as such we were totally naive to pretty much everything barring the very basics of letting a home. From my very first correspondence with Dara my experience has been nothing but positive. Dara is highly experienced both as a property manager but also as an experience property investor herself. For this reason, she has the advantage of being able to see things from your perspective as a property owner and investor as well as supporting you in a professional capacity as your property manager with her wealth of knowledge in managing both the property and tenants. Having someone who is very human, calm, supportive and thoughtful when handing all matters concerning the process of letting and renting as well as the ongoing management of your property makes a huge difference to making the whole experience a positive one. At times I was very stressed with the move as my husband was overseas, so I was alone and Dara’s approachable and calming demeanour made the whole process so much easier and a great success. Although I predominately deal with Dara, I have at times dealt with other members of the Raine & Horne Cleveland Team and found them to continue the excellent service that Dara has set as the standard of service that you can expect from this agency. I highly recommend Dara as a Property Manager; you could not wish for better service and will feel safe and secure under her management. Always met with a smile and friendly conversation she is a pleasure to deal with. ”
