Kate Saunders

Principal/ New Business Property Management

We offer dedicated and experienced Property Managers who are able to care for both unfurnished, furnished and fully furnished & equipped properties. With over 1000 properties under our management across Perth, we work very hard to exceed the expectations of our clients at all times. With the support and guidance of a hands on management team, our Property Managers attend ongoing training and adhere to our company policies which translates to a high level of service being provided to our clients. Property Management is no longer just a matter of collecting and remitting rentals, it is a specialised area of Real Estate practice which has to be geared to handle both the physical and financial complexities of property ownership today. Our department is structured to ensure that there is a fully conversant member of staff available to step in and manage our portfolios during times of staff leave. This further ensures that our clients receive a proactive and consistent level of service. Our Property Management department is supported by an effective and dedicated administrative team headed by our Department Manager. Most Property Management tasks involve a financial transaction at some point and we have evolved our systems and procedures around checklists which are finalised by our Department Manager. This ensures that your properties are effectively managed to our expected standard.

Great service provided by Kate and the team. They have managed my properties from day 1 going back over 10 years. Very competitive management rates but above all great value for money. They are fair and communicate well. Always happy to go above and beyond their call. I would endorse them.

I have been dealing with First National Real Estate, Druitt & Shead for many years and always found them to be extremely competent and professional. Kate and others in the team have a wealth of experience and more recently Sabine's excellent management of my property gives good peace of mind and the communication is first class. Thank you all and wishing you many more years of success. Peter O.

Kate provided friendly helpful service that guided me through this whole renting out my house scenario. Had never done this before and very happy with the service and outcome, quick to respond and never felt like i'm troubling them asking silly questions. would recommend 100%

This was the first time we had put our property up for rent and we were quite unsure about the whole process and choosing a property manager. Dealing with Kate, she has made the whole process extremely easy and always willing to go above and beyond to make things work for us. We also found our ideal tenants after only one home open. We could not recommend Kate any higher.

E Colbran

Fantastic service - this was our first experience at leasing out a property to tenants, and Kate and the team made us feel very comfortable and well informed. I'd wholeheartedly recommend Druitt & Shead.
