" 'Great Service & Professionalism' "
Hi Fiona Just a quick note the thank you for your great service and professionalism through this property purchase. I first made contact after hours, and really appreciated you getting back to us within 30 minutes, especially since offers closed the following day, and we hadn't even looked at the property. Once we settle we have a few jobs to do, then we will have your office rent the property on our behalf. Thanks Again.
I would like to thank you Michelle for you continued help in my purchase of a new home. There were some stressful moments during the past 6 weeks, but you have been fabulous in helping me to liase with the necessary people to come to a successful outcome. I will be recommending you to anyone that I know that is wanting to buy a house. Again thank you.

" KADINA TEAM THANKED "
Hi Jade. Your service and professional prompt attitude is very much appreciated from your team.
" THANK YOU TO THERESA CLARKE "
It is not often that I will write about the service that someone provides as part of carrying out their job. However, Theresa Clarke is certainly worth mentioning. Being a property manager is often a difficult role and I can’t speak highly enough about the service that Theresa provides. What stands out the most is her attention to detail in providing clear information in regard to any matter relating to the management of our properties. Nothing is ever to difficult and she has tackled sensitive situations in the most professional manner. Theresa is well aware that landlords have invested a great deal of money in property and I trust Theresa 100% and have complete confidence in her ability to manage some of our biggest assets. Worth mentioning is Theresa’s ability in mediating communication between the landlord and tenant in a fair and equity manner with an attitude of achieving a positive outcome for all. Thank you so much Theresa for your outstanding service in managing our properties.
" THANK YOU TO NICK & JADE! "
What a fantastic team who work with the owner and tenant to have the best outcomes possible. Very impressed by the service and the time that goes into making less hassles for myself as an owner. Nothing is ever seen as appearing to being too much for you and staff. Keep up the good work!
" KADINA TESTIMONIAL "
After many years of both managing and having our property managed, we are more than happy to recommend Nick and the team at Blights to those looking for property management. Blights conduct their business in a friendly but thoroughly professional manner: prompt, courteous communication; excellent problem solving and negotiation skills; attention to detail; day-to-day business carefully and efficiently taken care of, are some the things that come to mind. A team-approach is valued; they happily collaborate producing best possible outcomes for their clients.

Fiona, thank you for your assistance in the selling of our property in Nicolson Avenue. Your professionalism and knowledge has enabled us to achieve a quicker sale than anticipated in a very challenging market. Your knowledge of the current market place enabled us to get a price that we were comfortable with.
In a depressed economy and similarly depressed housing market, Fiona was able to sell my home promptly and at an acceptable price. Fiona is punctual, reliable and dependable. Most of all, she is sincere and honest. I cannot recommend Fiona highly enough if you wish to engage in buying and selling real estate in the Whyalla region.
I would like to express our gratitude and appreciation Fiona to you for all your effort, assistance, hard work and patience over the past eight months to sell our house. It has been a long journey and you were there from the start. A long time before we were even at the stage of putting it onto the market offering guidance and constructive advice which I believe helped greatly to achieve our end result. So thank you Fiona and look forward to using your services again for selling our next property.
Our experience with Fiona has been fantastic. She was very professional and friendly through every contact we had with her. The advice she gave us showed that she has a great understanding of real estate and the market. She fully understands when things go wrong and works tirelessly to help sort these issues out. Thank you Fiona for the advice, assistance and overall the friendly way you dealt with everything. Jodie & Chris – Whyalla. Aaron and I would like to say a huge “Thank you Fiona” for making our purchase on McConville Street such an easy one. Not only are you a friendly geezer but you were happy to answer our thousand questions and go out of your way to see us at times that suited us both. Thanks heaps. Aaron, Fee, Zak.
I would like to thank Fiona Quinn for her help and understanding during the difficult time of selling my parents home. Her advice and methods ensured a prompt and successful sale, and her recommended conveyance was also helpful and efficient. I would recommend Fiona to anyone considering the sale of property.

We would like to say thank you for selling my mothers house in an extremely difficult market. We would like to commend you on your initial appraisal as it was a difficult time for us and your compassion and explanation of the sales process was a standout and could not be matched by others. Your motivation, enthusiasm, constant feedback and quick responses show true professionalism and we believe has been “second to none” which is becoming harder to find in todays society. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy and sell in Whyalla.
With the downturn in the property market influenced by the global financial crisis and deferred decisions in mining effecting Whyalla, I did not pick a very good time to turn 64. But having decided to sell my property portfolio and convert it to superannuation by retirement age, gave this task to Fiona Quinn, my Agent, who quickly and efficiently sold all homes. Being an absentee landlord living in Adelaide, Blights ran my properties for years collecting rents, organizing new tenants and organising maintenance where necessary. I cannot recommend Fiona enough. Job well done. Thank you Fiona.
