“My Super Fund owns an industrial property complex of six warehouses in Tullamarine in close proximity to Melbourne Airport. Recently, I had the opportunity to change agents and contacted three requesting a submission.

I chose Rutherfords for three simple reasons:
1/. The contact agent, Paolo Simonelli, was prompt in his initial response, came to my home on the other side of Melbourne to present his submission and at no stage was pushy or unreasonably demanding. The other agents both wanted me to come to their respective offices & were quite insistent in that regard.
2/. Paolo produced a comprehensive plan to take over & manage the properties. He had also completed a drive-by of the property prior to our meeting.
3/. He offered a two month trial without agency fees to demonstrate his confidence & bona fides.

Rutherfords have now managed the properties for four months & in that time have:-
1/. Brought all tenants out of arrears.
2/. Collected vast amounts owing in outgoings.
3/. Successfully negotiated the termination & releasing of one tenancy without a days loss of rent.
4/. Deposited all payments into my account in the same week as the rentals were collected.
5/. Have provided excellent communication via email & phone to any queries.
6/. Have provided an exceptional response to technical issues
7/. Have arranged two total building inspections with detailed reports plus a separate fire services report.

Sara in accounts & Brooke in maintenance are simply outstanding in their fast and direct dealings backed up by excellent in-depth industry knowledge.

My only regret is that I didn't appoint Rutherfords years ago.”

Willingness & Communication

“After having disappointing experiences with other real estate companies, I’m happy to have come across Rutherfords Property Management.

My experience with Rutherfords has been positive due to their willingness to assist, their organisation and communication skills. I feel I can rest easy knowing that our property management is in their capable hands. ”

— Jenny Chiodo

Condition & Response

“"Paolo does an excellent job as a property manager, looking after our tenants and our properties with professionalism and courtesy. He and the Rutherfords team ensure our properties are kept in good condition and are quick to respond to any issues or queries. He has patiently and successfully negotiated several leases on our behalf and managed to create a win-win outcome for landlord and tenant each time.

Thanks to Paolo our assets are well managed and thus maintain their market value.”

— Jodie and Michael O’Keeffe,

Exceptional Job

“The property management team at Rutherfords has done an exceptional job. Our previous tenant went into liquidation in 2018. In such difficult times, Paolo, Drew and Brooke worked simultaneously to prepare the premises for leasing to a prospective tenant. Their goal of minimising the downtime and losses is reflected in the speed of work and results. Now we have a new and reputable tenant in the premises.”

— Tomy He - H&M Estate Pty Ltd

Effective Communication.

“I've used Rutherfords for several years now. In that time they have leased multiple properties, released and sold. I have found their commitment to be unrivalled and I have relied heavily on them to communicate with my tenants and resolve any issues that have arisen. Paolo Simonelli has been practically effective in these instances and communication has always been of utmost ease and clarity.”

— Carmine Vinci - Physical Healthcare

Continuous Satisfaction

“We have engaged Rutherfords Real Estate agents for over 8 years to manage our commercial properties.

Our current property manager Paolo Simonelli and his team have facilitated the renewal of leases, maintenance, fire and safety and essential services. With continuous satisfied customer and tenant relationship. Our rent is paid in a timely manner by the tenants which enables us to continue our business without interruptions.

Rutherfords are experienced and we will be continuing their valued management of our assets”

— Efthemia Konstantinidis - Arcanola P/L

Face to face contact is always maintained.

“We would like to express our thanks to the Rutherfords commercial property management team. The team was able to find us a new tenant and is now managing the rental process, including management of all relevant expenses that are required to be paid by the tenant without any issues or trouble. We receive all the rental statements as required and regular contact fact to fact with the agent is always maintained. We are satisfied with the overall performance of the Rutherfords commercial property agency and management team.”

Rutherfords processes and procedures have combatted these issues

“I have been with Rutherfords for a few years now and have never looked back from moving my portfolio over. I initially chose them due to their long standing presence in the market and knowledge of Industrial leasing/property management.
Brianna and the staff at Rutherfords have managed my portfolio with professionalism, ease and assertiveness. I have had difficult tenants in the past with paying their rent but Rutherfords processes and procedures have combatted these issues and ensures my financial obligations are met. Everyone at Rutherfords are friendly and knowledgeable in their field and have made me very happy to know my property is being managed properly.
