Holiday Property Manager

Email Agent

First National, thank you for a wonderful holiday at Now & Then.  We also wanted to say your customer service and staff are fantastic and well done on your service to clients.  From the day I booked, your emails, phone calls have been well mannered and always kept us up-to-date.  Having the service man fix our dryer on the same day was great service.  Our unit was sooo clean when we arrived. Well done & thank you!!

Happy Holiday Guest

Richard and I would like to acknowledge the enormous impact Shayne Richards has had on the successful operation of SeaCrest. She is wonderful in selling SeaCrest and also in the day to day management of the property. Nothing is too much trouble and she is always humorous, practical, responsive, and able to deal with both us as owners and also with the clients. Organising the team of trades and cleaners is like herding cats- but she does it with great effect. What a gem! I hope she is with you forever!

Shayne Richards has been managing our holiday house at Yamba for over 4 years now and during that time we have been overwhelmed with Shayne's knowledge of the market, the care and attention she has given to our property and the rental results she has delivered.
From the very beginning, Shayne has shown a genuine interest in making our property a success and has focused on building repeat bookings and being responsive to tenant feedback to ensure ongoing growth in rentals. Shayne has also ensured she has detailed knowledge of our property so that she can respond to tenant queries and make constructive suggestions as to how to improve the appeal of our house.
Apart from her professionalism and the excellent results achieved, Shayne is a delight to work with and we can't recommend her highly enough.
