Tenant - Murrumbeena Road, Murrumbeena (May 2018)

Bridgette Jones & Melissa Wise are fantastic property managers!! I’ve been renting in Melbourne for about 8 years and have had various property managers who would take days to reply and when they did reply I’d get a one or two word response and the communication was never friendly.
From day one, both Bridgette & Melissa have been very efficient, knowledgeable & friendly. I’ve never had to wait more than a few hours for a response to an email and they get back to me regarding a question I’ve asked without having to be asked twice… for me, this has been very rare. They easily get 5 star rating!

The performance of Melissa Wise in your rental department has been outstanding for me in the year I have owned an investment property in South Yarra. I am probably Castran Gilbert’s smallest client, but she treats me with all the efficiency, courtesy and care that I could expect were I the firm’s largest customer. Melissa is extremely quick back on emails, utterly reliable in doing what she says she will do, very well-skilled and knowledgeable about the business, and, not least, eternally cheerful, positive and pleasant to do business with. Nothing is too much trouble and she is patient in assisting someone not local or particularly experienced.

Tenant - Greville Street, Prahran (February 2017)

I just handed back keys to 12/161 Greville Street, and had to write and tell you what an excellent girl Melissa Wise is; An all ‘round gem.
She has been so consistently accommodating and on the ball since the very start. So easy going and yet does not miss a trick – what an asset to your team.
I have been on a 48 hour cleaning ‘bender’ since Monday with one objective “make Melissa proud!” ( Usually it’s “get back bond.” )
I was extremely sad to give up my apartment, and am equally as sad to give up having Melissa as my PM.
Her awesomeness is and was never taken for granted.


Landlord - Wills Street, Glen Iris (February 2017)

Passing on commendable feedback on Melissa relating to a storm damaged event which occurred Sunday night.

Landlord - Multiple Properties (August 2016)

I would just like to take this opportunity to highlight the outstanding professional service and performance of Senior Property Manager Melissa Wise.

Since I purchased my property from Castran Gilbert all the communication and customer service I have experienced has been of a high standard.
But when Melissa Wise took over the management of my property she raised the bar from good management of my property to outstanding.

Melissa’s communication, industry knowledge and her ability to promptly get back to me upon request makes her a cut above the rest.
It is service like this that puts Castran Gilbert ahead of your competitors, in turn making them industry leaders.
Melissa has also been very informative helping me with tax information I required relating to my investment property.
As a result of Melissa Wise and Castran Gilbert’s outstanding service, all my real estate requirements will now be handled by your company.

I would definitely recommend renting with Castran Gilbert again as their service was extremely fast, friendly and professional. Although I was running late on the day of inspection, the agent (Melissa) was nice enough to wait around for me. The application process was fast, acting swiftly when corresponding with me via email, text or phone. Overall, this has been the best rental application experience in my history of renting. Follow up service was also great and staff come across as very approachable and helpful.
