“We engaged Dave’s services back in 2008 to manage two of our rental properties in Richmond. It was a weight off our minds to have someone so capable and efficient handling everything from making sure rent was paid on time, getting new tenants when current tenants moved on and ensuring that tenants looked after our properties and kept the grounds tidy. On top of that Dave’s a really nice guy. We thoroughly recommend his services.”

“We have been very happy with David since changing over to The Rent Shop. He manages our property well and communicates regularly with us. We have been impressed with the standard of the inspection reports. Very thorough. Thank you.”
“I have been speaking with David & Jacqui for a number of months regarding property management investments, and the knowledge and understanding of real estate is second to none. I highly recommend them both for management of anyone's investment property. Both have had fantastic experience and are well known in the area, which is a bonus. I also love the fact that they're not trying to sell the property as they focus on rental only.”
"We are very happy with David's work. He found the perfect people for our house and maintained a good working relationship between us. We found David to be very professional in his work and yet flexible when needed and supportive of the needs of both our tenants and us. We highly recommend him.”
"David communicates well and acts as a good liaison between myself and the tenant. It can be difficult when your tenant is just around the road and thinks its ok to just presume I am dealing with their queries all of the time"
