“ A Real Agency For Tenants And Property Owners That You Won't Find Anywhere. I am a property owner, and my investment managed through Raine & Horne Kingsford. Led by the Licensee Mr Sam Karatasas who has looked after my place like it was his own for the last 30 years. In all that time, I cannot recall any reason to question their management. Their professionalism in leasing and maintenance has always ensured my tenants were happy, which resulted in my property occupied for a very long time with little or no vacancy. I have seen at Christmas time their office filled with cards from happy tenants including mine wishing them well for the festive season, far more than other agents whom I know. Over the years I have sent my friends who were looking for accommodation for their children attending the University of N.S.W. where Mr Karatasas and his team found the right place for the right price and acted swiftly to any concerns the tenants may have. As a socially conscious person from an older generation who has seen many changes over the last 50 years, I value old fashioned respectful ear who listens and acts on problems that arise from time to time and swiftly fix issues for a perfect outcome to owners and tenants. Raine & Horne Kingsford are genuine and approachable agents that value their tenants and owners and are always there to serve their needs swiftly as they have done so well in all the time of our association and hopefully many more in my Autumn years of life. Thank you, Mr Karatasas and your team of dedicated staff, I am ever so grateful. ”
