Rented a few years ago. What a nightmare. Noticed the counter staff have an "attitude" as soon as they know your renting. The inspection upon leaving was beyond ridiculous. Picking on the most trivial things after we killed ourselves cleaning the place. Ended up in court to only get half our bond back. Would NEVER rent or have these people manage my properties.I bought the house a few years later. JUST IN REPLY: it went before a magistrate, I should know i was there.
As a tenant I can say from the very onset the front office staff made me feel welcome and attended to all of my questions with ease. Until recently I had been renting through this company for 2 years. Had I not been transferred I would've happily stayed in my unit. My vacate was handled very professionally & with care given the short notice I had given them for my move south. I fully understand the vacate process for the team. Their aim is to ensure all tenants moving into their properties are received clean & tidy, as I did. I will be recommending this company to others moving to Townsville!
I was recently referred to this agency through a friend. I contacted John Gribbin Realty for an appraisal on my property recently & was met with an agent at my property the very next day. The agent I dealt with was honest in his dealings with me and I appreciated the fact I was given multiple options for the marketing of my property. Will be recommending to others.
We rented an apartment through John Gribbin and it was quite a struggle since the beginning. Our rent was $420 pw, for a furnished place. When we moved in the fridge wasn’t working (it was only 14 degrees), the dishwasher wasn’t working, both couches had major wear&tear and rips, the ac in the living/dining room was faulty, the shower was leaking so that it was almost practically unusable, the light in the toilet was broken (changing a light bulb didn’t help), the toilet bowl was completely covered with dark brown stain (tried to clean it several times without success), the smoke detector went off when we started the dryer (within 1 minute) or in the summer when we were cooking, and 3 door knobs were faulty (we sometimes got locked in the bathroom). They changed the couches and 2 door knobs within a month, but we needed to wait for a new fridge for almost 3 months! The rest they never fixed, and actually they didn’t even bother replying to our emails and when we called, they just asked us to email them. Then it was close to the end of the lease, so we just gave up. The only good thing was the end of lease. They were flexible with letting our cleaner in after the end of lease and the speed of returning our bond was good. At the moment we’re leading through another agent 😊
Not very good at maintanence of the properties they manage. I live near the strand and the complex im at needs upgrades.
