Testimonials


Kate Donaldson is not your average "Real Estate Agent.  She is one out of the box.  When we decided to sell our five acre hobby farm at Hurstbridge a very happy vender put us on to Kate.  She came when she said she would and from then on her help and assistance were fantastic.  She was professional and was always willing to go just that yard further for us.  It was a very difficult time.  Selling a house is not a hobby to be recommended.  Kate was just the tonic we needed.  I would recommend Kate to everyone planning to sell.  She is the epitome of a Real Estate person.  She understands, is always planning ahead and her powers of honest persuasion remarkable.  I cannot speak too highly of a person who is now a friend. I wish her well in her career.  Bill and Margaret Ogilvie.

I contacted Kate Donaldson Real Estate to ask about their Property Management Services which was happily answered by Kate. What impressed me was her communication through the initial phases as we exchanged numerous emails and calls with Kate… I couldn’t fault her knowledge and willingness to help highly enough. The speed to market was excellent and all of our needs with the rental campaign ongoing property management has all been exceptional. Since our first dealing with Kate was a success, we’ve asked her to provide management to another rental property. - Mr. A. Finney

Having used Kate Donaldson Real Estate for rental property management and for selling a property, we have found them exceptionally helpful in responding to any questions we have had. With help in furnishing the house for inspection, (loaning us some items), Kate achieved an excellent sale price for our property before it was even advertised, at a substantial saving in billboard and advertising costs. The sale was finalised within ten days. In every way possible, Kate and her staff made life as landlords in three tenancies and then as vendors, as simple as possible. We were made to feel like family, so were not surprised when one of our sons decided to lease his property through Kate (again finalised within a few days). We have no hesitation in recommending Kate Donaldson Real Estate for property management and sales. - Rod and Dorothy Morgan

We highly recommend Kate Donaldson Real estate, Kate and her fantastic team now manage three of our investment tenancies. We are grateful for their effort and thankful for the peace of mind we gain in return. Thank you Kate. Regards, Joe


Leasing - Kate was recommended to us by an agent in Melbourne's Southbank area where we had just sold an investment property. Our Property Manager at Newland Walk was doing a very poor job and we wanted someone who was going to show a lot more interest and get the property back into a good condition as we were thinking of selling. Our existing tenant had fallen into rent arrears and we desperately wanted a good Property Manger. Thankfully Kate arrived on the scene and very professionally and efficiently got everything back into good condition and the tenant under control. My wife and I could not be more grateful for what Kate did and cannot recommend her and her staff highly enough as a Property Management Company providing excellent service at competitive rates.

Sales Kate did such a good job managing our Newland Walk property that it was a very easy  to decide who we would use to sell our Property. Her appraisal  of it was  professionally presented showing a lot of research and a realistic value. The agreed listing price was a bit lower than we wanted but a lot of interest was shown and we ended up getting a price close to what we wanted.

Kate and her staff acted on our behalf with integrity and absolute professionalism. My wife and I have no hesitation in recommending Kate Donaldson Real Estate as the company to use in the Newland Walk area to manage or sell your property. - Tim & Kathy Millett - Perth, Western Australia
