Property management is a tough gig.

Ask anyone who has been in the real estate business for a decent amount of time, and they’ll tell you exactly that. There are lots of long hours and there can be tense moments that challenge even the most professional of operators.

But after 10 years in this industry, Kylie has the same spring in her step as the first day she started her real estate career back in 2003 with the Davey Real Estate Group who are celebrating their 40th year in business in 2015.
Kylie puts this down to a few core elements that drive the way she does business and what she feels is key to a successful and rewarding career, which in turn translates to exceptional service for her clients.

Never compromise on quality.

Kylie has continually aimed to grow her knowledge, experience and connections within the industry to ensure she is always at the forefront of the latest systems, legislation and business practices. She is dedicated to efficiency, and evolving a streamlined property management structure not only for her own work but for the benefit of the Davey Group. Kylie is heavily involved in writing and implementing Davey’s procedures and policies while keeping up to date on changes to the Residential Tenancies Act and other legislation to make sure her team is fully educated on current regulations.

Know your market.

More than just being familiar with a suburb or a region, Kylie knows that really connecting with the people and places in the area that she works is what sets her apart from the rest. A veritable encyclopedia on everything there is to know about the area, Kylie has lived and worked in Scarborough Beach for over a decade and can advise on anything from local schools, the property market, community events and groups… she can even help you find a bus stop, if needed! As Vice President of the Scarborough Netball Association and with strong ties through community work, Kylie’s friends often joke about her running for mayor… perhaps not such a stretch of the imagination!

Be the best and lead the rest.

Leadership comes naturally to Kylie, and she strives to provide a clear path for other up and coming property managers to learn and grow in a supportive and driven environment. With a Diploma in Property Services and her Real Estate Licence under her belt, Kylie has continued to educate herself to be able to provide that knowledge to people inside and outside the industry. It’s true that educating her clients makes life easier for everyone, reducing confusion and misinformation.

Excellent service is Kylie’s mantra and she has demonstrated this in meaningful and innovative ways. Speak with Kylie about her Landlord Seminars, Innovative Rental Appraisal and “how to” videos for Landlords and Tenants.

My Testimonials

Working with the Davey team led by Kylie and Roselyn has been a positive experience in finding a tenant for our property. They're hard working, efficient and easy to communicate with. I value their expertise in the industry and knowing what to look for in the search for the perfect tenant. They found a suitable applicant after only one viewing in a week!

Great service ladies. Well done!

I have been very happy with Davey REs performance in renting my property in Scarborough. Kylie was great with the initial advice, explained all the processes clearly and the paperwork was accurate and comprehensive. Roselyn has conducted most of the home opens, which were frequent and they have gone well with good attendances and I have been kept fully informed of the outcomes and been advised when something could be done to improve the presentation. The initial rental valuation was accurate and was achieved. The internet reporting system is good and I am confident that the ongoing management will be problem free.

Kylie and the team made renting my place a breeze. Always ready to help with whatever they could, and so accommodating! Looking forward to dealing with them all during the management of my property ????

Kylie and the team made renting my place easy! Everything was really well organised and attended too. Looking forward to a long relationship with Davey :)

Kylie has been an absolute pleasure to deal with from the get go, very professional, responsive and was more than happy to answer my multiple queries!!

"Leigh and I cannot thank yourself and Kylie enough for everything that Davey has done with this extremely smooth transition of Davey managing our Moondine Drive Property.

Again our sincerest thank you for the amazing job you have done so far".

"Congratulations on winning the REIWA Property Manager of the Year award for 2014. This award recognises your reliability and consistency over the past 9 years and your ability to deal with mega-complexes in established portfolios and with individual investors, ultimately bringing in new properties to the rent roll of the Agency. Your 100% retention rate in 2013/2014 is enviable!"

"After self-managing my property for two years, I felt I no longer had the time to deal with the many issues that often arose.

I spoke to three different agents before settling on Davey Real Estate and I am very happy with my decision. Kylie has now been managing my property for over two years. During this time she has ensured that i do not need to worry about my property and has dealt with all aspects relating to it including finding new tenants and dealing with numerous maintenance issues.

Kylie is very good at keeping me in the loop and having the hard conversations with tenants (resulting in my property being very well maintained and receiving a much better rental return that what i would've negotiated myself). I have been extremely happy with kylie, so much so that I have decided to remain with Davey now that I am putting my house on the market.

I would not hesitate in recommending Kylie to any propective client"

"This is a reference for Kylie Michalczyk, I met Kylie in 2005 as I needed a Property Manager for my investment portfolio of seven properties; I conducted interviews from three Real Estate companies on numerous unannounced Saturday mornings. The applicants varied in age, the amount of time they had in the industry, and consequently the amount of experience they had.

Right from the start Kylie, who was the youngest at only 21 at the time, stood out head and shoulders above the other two contenders. She was, and is, articulate, intelligent, and able to quickly grasp current and changing situations in a capacity that belied her young age, indicating her clear thought processes.

An example of how Kylie implements her attributes is when she deals with awkward tenants - the ones who lie and talk in riddles. I have seen Kylie in action on a number of occasions where she has skilfully managed the situation and remained in control to derive a successful outcome which has exceeded my expectations.  

Because of Kylie's overall level of professionalism and integrity she remains my Property Manager of choice"

Yours sincerely,

Myles Ferguson
