John & Jacoline Loewen ,Toronto, Canada
Richard treats your house as if it were his own. Actually, he probably treats our home with far more care than I do as he has an eagle eye for detail!
We have been astonished at how he has been able to organize such a complicated property – and with so many difficult, logistical issues to overcome.
What truly astonishes us is when he gives us a list of things that need to be done, he does them in such a short turnaround time – No “Outeniqua Rust”!
We are also delighted to get Richard’s frequent communications reminding us that our home is in safe, reliable hands.
The community around us has also appreciated Richard’s respectful manner and his interest in preserving their lifestyle.
Richard is world class and we highly recommend Davies Property Management, even to someone as fussy as my mother-in-law.

Before finding Richard Davies to manage my property, matters were in total disarray. His prompt attention to what needs to be attended to and his ability to get things done in a timely fashion is without equal.
He keeps me informed of property management issues with regular e-mail updates and has handled my property as if he were its owner. I highly recommend his valuable service and integrity.
Noetzie Bay House
Aubrey & Liz Wynne-Jones, Johannesburg, RSA
As the owner of Noetzie bay House, my wife and I employed the services of Richard Davies and his property management company early in 2008 to:
• Ensure the maintenance and upkeep of Noetzie Bay House, its garden and surrounding land with indigenous flora (fynbos) that we own.
• Manage and monitor any alterations and/or additions that may be required from time to time.
• Market the house as a self-catering holiday home via the internet , press etc.
• Deal with all prospective and actual clients in terms of bookings and payment.
• Make sure that visiting clients are welcomed on arrival, bade farewell on departure and provided with the holiday they wished for.
As all absentee landlords will know, a competent and reliable manager is critical – and a rare commodity. I am pleased to assure anyone thinking of employing Richard that we have found him honest, thorough, innovative, hard working and good with clients. The feedback on our website speaks for itself. He also communicates regularly so, as an owner, you are not left in the dark.
We would unreservedly recommend Richard and his team to anyone requiring services similar to those provided to us.
Home by the Sea
Paul & Carrie Turner, Hampton, UK
Richard and his team offer a highly professional and very personal service with great attention to detail. Our South African home is very important to us from both an emotional and financial perspective and it gives us huge peace of mind as we live our day-to-day lives in Europe to know that it is being lovingly cared for.
Richard has excellent communication skills and so we are always fully updated on any important issues that require attention or decisions. The most important thing is that whenever we return to Home by the Sea we always know that we are returning to enjoy our holiday rather than deal with problems.
