We have employed Lauren Bridges from Belle Property Dee Why to manager our rental property in Dee Why since …… We had been with another agent for approximately 2 years but always felt we were advising them on what we wanted or needed from our property. From the beginning Lauren has provided exemplary service. She has given us clear and knowledgeable advice on any necessary changes we should make to provide maximum rental income both fair to us as the owner and the tenant. The rental reports have been on time and thorough and we always receive a follow up call to ensure we understand and are happy with how she is managing our property. We would highly recommend Lauren to any prospective landlord and we look forward to a continued strong business relationship with her.
When we bought our first investment property last year, a family friend recommended Belle Property to manage our rental. Lauren helped guide us through the process of pricing and advertising, and found us amazing tenants on a 12-month lease after just one mid-week showing, days after we handed her the keys.
Lauren and her team have been very pro-active in passing on the tenants' (very reasonable) request for window locks to us, and fully managed our follow-up actions, getting a good value locksmith to install the window locks within a fortnight of our approving the request.
Our 12-month lease hasn't been that simple. Lauren's team are very good at assessing potential tenants. But unfortunately for us, our tenants found their own property to buy before their lease was up. Lauren's team kept me informed of the tenants' situation, and of my options for re-advertising or having people take over the existing the lease, including all the details about my rights as landlord.
I did sympathise with our outgoing tenants. I remember that first mortgage all too well and how every little bit counts in those first two months. Lauren's team told me that they had proposed some options for the outgoing tenants to help them manage potential double payments on rent and a mortgage. I was really surprised and happy with the empathy and professionalism with which they handled the whole thing. At the same time Lauren's team made sure that I received all the rent that I was entitled to. In the end we had a smooth transition to fantastic new tenants who are finishing up the lease, with no loss at all to me, and hopefully minimal fuss and cost for our previous tenants.
I have had plenty of experience as a very house-proud tenant and no agency inspired me to stay on with them. At the same time as a property owner I am really wary of having tenants who think of the apartment as "just a rental" and not a home to take care of. I feel that Lauren is a very good judge of character as well as being very thorough with her background checks of prospective tenants, and she has found two couples who have taken great care of our apartment.
I know that Lauren's team gives me the best advice in terms of my rights and responsibilities as landlord, but the difference for me is that they have a genuine respect and caring for our tenants as well. I think that this is what will help me minimise vacant periods, and keep our investment property working for us.
I would recommend Lauren and her team to prospective tenants as well as landlords.
Belle Property rented out our investment property. We found them to be very responsive, professional and proactive. This resulted in our investment property being rented out in the same week as settlement. The staff are very friendly and easy to deal with. We are very satisfied with their services and would recommend them to others.
I purchased a property through Belle and was so impressed with their professional, friendly and accessible approach that I engaged them to manage 2 rental properties for me. Lauren and the crew at Belle have made the leasing of my properties a pleasant process with their efficient and effective rental management. I recommend their services to prospective landlords.
I am writing this to highly recommend Ashley Crowther and the team at Belle Property Dee Why as Property Managers.

Within one week of listing my most recent investment property on the rental market Ashley found me a fantastic tenant, who has met all of my requirements. It is reassuring to know that my three investment properties, are being managed and cared for with the same level of pride which I myself would give.All communication has been prompt and efficient and I highly recommend Belle Real Estate Dee Why and in particular Ashley Crowther without hesitation to anyone contemplating the rental of property. Her professionalism certainly sets a standard that many other real estate agents could aspire to.
I am more than pleased with the service received from Belle Property Dee Why. Lauren and the staff have been a delight to deal with and have gone out of their way to ensure all aspects of my tenancy run smoothly.

Belle Dee Why has been an absolute pleasure to work with; from investment property purchase to the easy transition of property management. Following the purchase of our property through Belle (Jo Morrison, a lovely transparent agent), Lauren and Ashley have undertaken its management. Their professionalism, integrity and efficiency prompted me to place my other properties into their care and I have never looked back. They intuitively interact on my behalf between our tenants and Strata bodies saving me the hassle of chasing up maintenance issues and ensuring the properties are adequately maintained at all times. Nothing is too hard and their sincere, friendly interaction is just icing on the cake. In the past I have experienced payroll delays with other agents. The team at Belle go above and beyond to never miss a pay run- an amazing reassurance for property investing cash flow management. Currently searching for another investment property to place into their care and could not recommend Lauren and Ashley highly enough!

I have considerable trust in both Lauren & Ashley & know that they will always keep me well informed & up to date on any potential activities to provide me with advance notice & help with planning my finances. Definitely recommend the girls & will have them look after all my investments.
