Property Management Subiaco (and surrounding suburbs)

Our team is able to provide our clients with a wealth of property management experience.  Our point of difference is that we provide each of our owners with a personalised service and unlike other agencies we have a very low staff turnover.

The Property Exchange provides its staff with excellent working conditions which offers a work life/balance which means everyone here is highly motivated, positive and maintains the highest level of customer service. Everyone works together to take care of paperwork, maintenance, managing tenants and keeping up with legislation so our clients can have freedom and peace of mind, at the same time maximizing their rental income.

We like to take a team approach to managing our clients properties, if for instance your usual property manager is away, there is always one of our experienced team to step in at a moment’s notice. We take the marketing of our rental properties very seriously.  We understand that the current rental market is competitive and we have the market knowledge to ensure your property stands out from the rest.  Our presentation is second to none, and we only accept high-quality properties.

What our landlords and tenants say about us…

  • Hi Siobhan, I was very impressed with The Property Exchange and the overall service I received. As such, I have already provided numerous recommendations to friends and colleagues. The communication I experienced was exceptional even outside of normal working hours; it was professional and timely but also very honest which was appreciated. As a result, my apartment was leased much quicker than I anticipated and for a reasonable price, despite tough market conditions. It is certainly worth investing time in researching agents prior to engaging their services - it certainly paid off for me! Thanks again.  

    S. Donnan Landlord, Hay Street, West Perth // Nov 2016
  • Thanks Siobhan and Melanie for all your hard work in leasing our property. We appreciate the effort you made and your regular communication with us. We look forward to Charles St having nice people living in it.

    R. Harvey Landlord, Charles St, North Perth // Sept 2017
  • We were renting out our home after enjoying our life there for 20 years so it was important to get the right property manager, someone that we would trust with our home. I first met Siobhan Payne in 2014 and when we were ready to rent out the house in 2017, it was Siobhan that I contacted. When you meet her, you are instantly drawn to her bubbly personality, her enthusiasm and dedication as a property manager and her knowledge of the current rental market. Siobhan is positive, driven, highly organised, punctual and always at the other end of the phone, whether to answer questions or to give honest feedback about potential clients. We have successfully rented our property in a difficult climate and this is due to Siobhan's diligence; she has been patient, understanding and informative. Thank you so much.

    S. Clark Landlord, Curtin Ave, Cottesloe // May 2017
  • We've had nothing but positive experiences with The Property Exchange, during a low rental market time Siobhan managed to get our property leased within two weeks. The communication from Siobhan and the team throughout the leasing period was wonderful and from day one we knew we had made the right decision going with The Property Exchange. We believe Siobhan made an immense effort to get to know our requirements and was very knowledgable regarding our property, the services surrounding it, developments taking place and general suburb information, this made the entire process smooth and easy. Overall we're very impressed with the professional, genuine and friendly service and are looking forward to continuing to lease with The Property Exchange.

    E. Langenberg Landlord, Hood Street, Subiaco // May 2017
  • We've been extremely pleased to have The Property Exchange, and especially Siobhan Payne, manage our property. Living overseas; it's important to have a property manager you can trust and is clear in their communications. Siobhan impressed from the very first meeting when we were looking to switch property managers at the poorly managed end of a lease - she used the minimal amount of time we had available to do a tremendous amount of research and showed an impressive amount of knowledge about our property and its place in the rental space. This effort, professionalism and market understanding resulted in finding a new tenant after a first showing - for the rate we had in mind. Since then, The Property Exchange has kept up their high level of communication and, simply, has been a pleasure to work with.  

    R. Schop Landlord, Anzac Road, Leederville // Mar 2017
  • We recently rented out our family home in Shenton Park through The Property Exchange. Siobhan Payne and her team were excellent in all aspects of the process. The photographs they organised and the website presentation were terrific which led to a number of enquiries straight away. They were also very helpful with helping us prepare the property and were a delight to deal with. Great communication and a very professional approach throughout the process. We rented the house quickly and for the full asking price and were extremely happy with Siobhan’s service.  

    M. Coughlan Landlord, Hensman Rd, Shenton Park // Mar 2017
  • Hi Siobhan, Disha  and I would like to thank The Property Exchange team for their excellent  service and effort in managing our rental property. We were very impressed on how you wasted no time in putting up the advertisement on the internet followed by house viewings. We believe your attention to detail and your professionalism were key in making the whole process go seamlessly.

    V. and D. Muniandy Landlord, McDonald St, Joondanna // Mar 2017
  • Hi Siobhan, We wanted to write to thank you for the assistance that you provided in finding tenants for our property! We chose The Property Exchange as our leasing agent, as over the years we had gained the impression that your company was extremely professional. In our dealings with you, that expectation was fully met. At your first inspection of our home, you were able to advise us of things that we could or should do in preparation for the photography session, and for home opens and viewings. I have no doubt that the advice given helped to get the property leased so quickly (8-10 days I think). We particularly appreciated the level of communication. Our questions were answered quickly and with a warmth that made this feel less transactional. You made the process much easier than we had expected. We look forward to many years of dealing with The Property Exchange!

    C. Murray Landlord, Melrose Street, Leederville // Jan 2017
  • I couldn't have been happier with my experience renting my property out through The Property Exchange. Siobhan Payne has been so helpful and responsive and has guided me through every step as a first-time landlord. The whole process was made simple, efficient and easy. Siobhan answered all of the questions I had as well as many more that I hadn't even known to ask! I found great tenants after the first home viewing and am very happy with the rent that was agreed. As well as being professional and efficient, Siobhan is also so friendly and approachable that I've really enjoyed working with her. Great customer service from her and from everyone that I've dealt with in The Property Exchange team. Would recommend them in a heartbeat!

    S. Khouri Landlord, Kimberley Street, West Leederville // Jan 2017
  • Hi Siobhan, I hope you are well. Our overall experience with The Property Exchange, and Siobhan Payne in particular, has been absolutely fantastic. We received daily updates during the leasing process and communication was always honest and relevant. Siobhan took control of everything and completely alleviated all stress on our end. The team understood what was a very challenging rental market and was always proactive in implementing the necessary measures to ensure our property was leased as soon as possible. My wife and I know the property is in great hands and we would most definitely recommend The Property Exchange to friends and family. Thanks again for your assistance over the past few months.

    C. and A. Tovey Landlord, Green Street, Joondanna // Dec 2016
  • Hi Siobhan, Your service was excellent. Everything was very well organised from your side and communication was very good throughout the entire process. I was very happy with how quickly you were able to find a tenant given the current market conditions. Thanks also for your responsiveness in the week prior to the new tenants moving in.

    S. McMaster Landlord, Douro Place, West Perth // Dec 2016
  • We had our villa renting through Siobhan as when we decided to move over East. It was our home and we were meticulous in what real estate agent to use. We compared real estate agents, and Siobhan at The Property Exchange was the only one that we felt would make sure our place was looked after the way we had looked after it. She did everything she said she would and sent us through all the information within the first 24 hours of asking our questions. Siobhan has extensive experience in real estate and also manages her own property so she understands what it is like to be a landlord. She was very proactive, which meant that our property was able to be rented after the first viewing, and in the current market we had expected that we would have to drop our price and wait at least a month to get a tenant signed up. Mel then assisted us with getting our place ready for the new tenants, including the final clean. Both Siobhan and Mel were very lovely to deal with and we left our property knowing that it will be looked after and have recommended The Property Exchange to others!  

    S. Dunnet Landlord, Kindra Way, Nollamara // December 2016
  • I was very impressed with the level and commitment of service I received from Siobhan Payne in relation to leasing my property out with The Property Exchange. From start to finish of the leasing process, it was an absolute whirlwind of professionalism and efficiency. By the second day of having the property available to lease, Siobhan had 9 groups of prospective clients through the doors. And by the end of that same week, Siobhan had 4 offers for potential lease offers to consider. The whole process was made very easy due to Siobhan’s evident knowledge and experience within the industry. I would recommend her service, and The Property Exchange as a direct result of that level of service. To say I am pleased with the service provided would be an understatement.

    S. Macaulay Landlord, Daglish Street, Wembley // Nov 2016
  • Siobhan’s professionalism and can-do attitude was a pleasure to deal with. We were impressed with her knowledge of the area and her ability to get things done fast. She quickly turned around our property and had it leased within days at the rent we hoped for. We can thoroughly recommend Siobhan and Property Exchange.

    C. and S. Viiala Landlords, Evans Street, Shenton Park // Nov 2016
  • Your kind, caring, considerate attitude really helped make our move less stressful. Thank you for going out of your way to even feed the fish once we vacated. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you.
