"I recommend Dixon Kestles to anyone contemplating a great property manager for their rental property. I have been a landlord for 15 years and have used other agents for my property management. None have provided me with the service and care that Dixon Kestles provides.  They provide ongoing updated information on the property plus the market and any changes in the tenancy act due to the upcoming changes. I highly recommend them!" - Danielle Ridley

"We purchased a very unique property in Clarendon Street, South Melbourne from Dixon Kestles in 2015.It comprised  15 shops,2 offices and 10 residential apartments all on one title. We engaged the services of Nadia Barnes and her team to assist us with the management of the residential component. Nadia and her team have been very proactive in assisting us with our “value add” strategy-with her assistance, we have grown rents by 10-20% in some instances and signed the majority of tenants to 1 year leases. We receive regular condition reports on our portfolio which are of a very high standard. Nadia selectively advised us which of the apartments were the most in need of renovation and to date we have upgraded 3 residences. Nadia obtained quotes from relevant service providers to Dixon Kestles and effectively project managed the renovations on our behalf. All three upgrades were delivered under budget and the renovated apartments were subsequently leased out at premium rentals. Nadia and her team are a pleasure to deal with" - Anthony Wilson, Managing Director Terraplex
