5 star rating

In July 2017, we purchased a rental property in Smithfield S.A. For peace of mind, we chose a locally-based agency to manage the property – Kevin Hodges Real Estate.
We realized very quickly that this was an excellent choice. We were dealing with REAL people who were not only highly efficient, but had a heart and showed real warmth towards both home owners and lessees. Our new property was leased within a very short time, without fuss or issues to be faced by us.
We felt so comfortable and secure in this business arrangement that we asked Kevin to inform us when a similar property came up for sale through them. Within six weeks we owned our second Smithfield rental property.

What do we like about the company?

1. 100% reliability
2. We and our lessees are not just clients … we are real people treated equally and with utmost integrity.
3. Repairs and maintenance issues are dealt with promptly through their network of reliable tradies.
4. Financial transactions occur without fail on the 15th and the last day of each month. For us, this is an absolute bonus because our two rental properties are our only source of income. We can eat and manage our household expenses without any financial concerns.
5. Kevin Hodges is not just a business proprietor concerned with building up his personal security. He has strong community links, and cares about people’s lives. That in itself is really special about the company.

I really like the reliable professional customer service I receive from Kevin Hodges Real Estate. They have very knowledgeable staff who are tough but fair minded with tenants. Everything is explained well, and they keep me informed of any events/changes e.g. legislation. The staff keep on top of any issues with tenants before they become major issues. All this adds up to peace of mind that my property is looked after.

Kevin Hodges is an honest and trustworthy man. The staff provide excellent service. In particular, Julie works tirelessly on our behalf. She is such good value!
They represent me and my investment, liasing between me and the tenants instead of me having to do it. Communication and feedback is their priority.
They select excellent tenants. We appreciate the regular property inspection reports and feedback, and the detailed annual reports for taxation purposes.
Happy to recommend Kevin Hodges Real Estate to any property investor.

Love the way Wendy lets us know immediately of any problems that occur with our property. We don’t have to worry about long periods of vacancy. Tenants are well vetted.

Linda Hanson

I recommend Kevin Hodges Real Estate property management services because they had some great ideas to rent my property that I had not thought of myself; they went out of their way to get me a good tenant; they gave me confidence I was dealing with a first class real estate property management professional. When there was an issue where repairs were needed and we were overseas, we had excellent communication from our Property Manager Maria.

We also like the property inspections which are thorough and issues are attended to promptly. We appreciate the electronic transfer of our money.

Three benefits we’ve received are: well researched tenants; the type of advertising done; and definitely less stress!

Susan Bennetts

Your property management service is competent which means no stress and no hassle for me!
You got me a great tenant and I appreciated your advice on rents in the area.

I appreciate my money being transferred electronically. I find my Property Manager doesn’t hassle me for things and I like the fact that the water bill is looked after.

I saved myself a lot of stress by dealing with someone who was super knowledgeable about every aspect of renting properties. My Property Manager told me exactly what I needed to do to present my property so that I would maximise its appeal to tenants. And she told me the price range I would probably get for it, rather than giving me unrealistically high expectation that was not accurate.

Andrew Currie

Being a local agent really helps. Kevin Hodges Real Estate have worked in the area for some time and knows the area well. I appreciate the good communication between the Agent and the owner.

I’ve benefited from the knowledge provided when presenting my property on the market. My tenants were kept happy and renewed their lease.

I recommend your property management services because even through hard times, your team worked hard to find me a great tenant. The service provided goes beyond my expectations.

Dear Kevin,

We wanted to thank you for all the work in selling our unit – we really appreciate it.

We have appreciated the service provided by your office in the past 5 years, and will be sure to recommend you to anyone wanting to sell or rent out a property! Please pass on our thanks to Property Manager Louise for all her work.

Paul and Carolyn

To whom it may concern

This letter confirms that I will strongly recommend Mrs Louise Walton as a property manager for your property.

I have known Louise now for five years or so now and have been managing my property ever since and have maintained a very good working relationship with her during this time. After my first meeting with her, I knew that she meant business, she is a very hands on person, replying to my emails and queries in a timely manner.

She is a very sociable and well attentive to her customers. I am pleased to recommend Louise to any customer wishing to use her services as a property manager and even being overseas I still keep in touch with her via emails, and she will be my first choice if ever I purchase another property.

Mark Ah Chuen

To Whom It May Concern

Louise Walton has been the property manager for our property at Lyndoch since 2010.

Louise has been a most courteous and pleasant manager, going out of her way to serve both us as the landlords and also the tenants who have occupied the property. She has always shown a genuine care and concern for both parties over and above what could be expected.

I would highly recommend Louise to anyone wishing to rent their property, as an exellent and extremely courteous manager.
Yours Sincerely,

Raelene M Backman

What a joy it has been to work with Louise and the team at Kevin Hodges Real estate.

As a landlord, the last thing I need is to run around fixing this and that. Having Louise working with me, addressing issues before they arise, getting the best result for myself and the tenant, has been a load of worry off my mind and a breath of fresh air.

I highly recommend the team. Thanks, Louise for a job well done.

Kindest Regards


Hi Maria and Kevin

Kevin, thank you for your advice and effort in getting the best from the sale of our property.

We wish you all the best.
Kind regards and many thanks.

Andrea Webster and Richard Eason

Dear Kevin

I write this letter in regards to the leasing of my parents commercial property situated at Waterloo Corner Road, Burton. I wish to express our sincere thanks on the leasing of Burton. The business transaction was dealt with in a very professional manner. I also appreciated you taking the time to keep me updated at all times as this made it very easy to keep my parents well informed of any progress. The end results were also very pleasing especially the 5 year lease, which I genuinely believe was your vast experience in Real Estate which helped achieve these excellent results. Congratulations Kevin we would certainly recommend your services to any other prospective clients, a job well done.

Connie Tripodi

Dear Kevin Hodges Real Estate Team,

I am writing this reference on behalf of my Property Manager Maria.

I wish to advise that I have had a good relationship over a period of five years of her looking after my property.

Maria is a very friendly and respectful person, who assists in many ways and has made me feel like a friend.


Phyllis Adams

We have known, and been clients of, Kevin Hodges for more than thirty years. During that time we have bought and sold several rental properties and have seen many changes occur in the real estate industry and in Kevin's own business. One thing that has remained consistent is Kevin's loyalty to his clients, his integrity in business and his ability to know the right time to buy and sell. He always makes himself available to his clients for advice, based on his many years of experience in the industry, or to answer any questions they may have relating to their properties or to real estate in general. Every detail is considered, including the necessity for Landlord's Insurance.

As property managers, he and his staff are the best! They excel at securing reliable tenants for rental properties. They give timely, detailed inspection reports. We are advised promptly if there is any problem with a property, enabling us to follow through quickly with maintenance or repairs. Statements are provided on time at the end of each month, showing all income and expenses for that period, with the net income deposited into our bank account fortnightly.

Being property investors has certainly been a means of wealth accumulation for us over the years, and we would highly recommend anybody to include property in their investment portfolios.
To sum up, Kevin Hodges Real Estate completely take any worry out of being landlords!

Jan and Dennis

Dear Linda

We would like to say thank you for handling our property over the last few years, We started with Maria and then eventually on to you. You have had some difficult things to deal with i.e. fence replacement (which involved dealing with two other fence sharers), air conditioner problems, wet ceiling and evicting "Mr Steptoe". You had to deal with us long distance and you kept us up to date on any problems etc that arose.

We wish you all the best in any ventures you take on in 2010. Please convey our thanks to the other staff members who always passed on our messages to you and were very pleasant to deal with.


Josie and Derek

Hi Wendy and Team
