“We have been using the property management services of Salamanca Realty since 2003.  We have found the whole team to be unfailingly helpful, friendly and efficient.  They have gone above and beyond their promised services to make our experience of owning investment properties worry free and the tenants they have found for us have always been reliable and trustworthy.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Salamanca Realty to anyone looking for someone to take care of their investment.” Janette & Tim, NSW.


“Salamanca Realty have been managing our property since we bought it 17 years ago and their professionalism and communication have been excellent in every regard.  The inspections have been carried out thoroughly and the property is in excellent condition due to their diligence.  We have always been very grateful for their advice when something needs repairing or replacing, obtaining quotes on our behalf, and organising the appropriate tradesman promptly so the tenant isn’t inconvenienced any longer than necessary.

Particular thanks go to Tina and Mark who have been the main managers over this period of time.” Roger & Brenda, Taroona
