Testimonials

Karen and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you [Mark Riley] for your assistance and diligence in selling our home. We must say that throughout the whole process you were patient, calm and helpful with advice, meeting our needs and also the buyers’ needs, right up to the time the house was sold. Being in the building industry I am sure I will call on your services again.

After approaching several local agents we decided to entrust Mark Riley with the sale of our house.  Mark showed a solid and sound knowledge of our area and also the local market as a whole and with this knowledge worked with us to ensure our expectations were realistic with the current market when deciding on a selling price.  Mark provided us with excellent advice on how to best present our house for inspections and on open days.  After open homes there was always a prompt call to us to let us know the outcome and provide us with honest feedback from the buyers in the market. Mark portrayed a professional manner at all times and yet was easy going and approachable.  His attitude and willingness to actually get involved with not only us but also our kids was quite different to other agents we have dealt with before and it actually took away a lot of the stress and worry.  Letting us be involved in the whole process of photo selection and marketing was also something quite unique we found. We wouldn’t hesitate to approach Mark again in the future should the need arise.

Selling your parents’ estate can be quite a trying time for all concerned. Our family had Mark Riley look at the property and provide us with a written report however, family decisions were made to enlist the services of another agent at that time.  After months of nothing happening we were again in contact with Mark and decided that a change was now needed.  We realised we wanted a no nonsense person, someone who was energetic, honest and reliable. Mark let us know where we were heading but more importantly where we needed to head. He kept us up to date at all times and was more than willing to work for us at any time of the day or night. We highly recommend Mark to anyone wanting an agent that will work with you, for you and ultimately achieve results.

Selling your home after 30 odd years is not an easy thing to deal with, especially when it has been the family farm and all the kids have grown with it.  Mark Riley, through his words of encouragement, positive nature and attitude to look forward to the future, went out of his way to ease the pain on us all.  His marketing plan encouraged a huge amount of interest and from the very first day of us signing to sell he was on the job seven days a week.  Janet and I would like to thank Mark for the excellent outcome for all concerned.

Greg Millhouse

I’ve bought and sold nine properties in Tasmania and Queensland over the past 40+ years and Mark Riley has excelled beyond anything that I’ve ever experienced.  He is highly experienced, tells it as it is, he is as good as his word and an honourable man.

It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Mark Riley and we would like to take this opportunity to thank him for all his kind assistance and integrity.  We are absolutely delighted with our new home and the outstanding customer service and professionalism we received.  Mark will be highly recommended.
Lisa and Maria Perhat

I was completely satisfied with Mark Riley’s competent and efficient approach.  He was always friendly and helpful without being “pushy”.  It was a pleasure to deal with him!
Margaret Perrin

Mark Riley was always readily contactable during the period from when I first viewed the property until the contract was completed.  There were issues of some minor approval defects in relation to this property and Mr Riley always made every attempt to readily have these matters addressed and where he could ensured that they were remedied with attendances with the seller of the property or the relevant authorities. 
Ted McCulloch

Mark Riley was great to deal with and answered all our “stupid” questions (as a first home buyer) with a smile.  Very honest and explained things in a way we could easily understand.  I would highly recommend him to others in a flash.  Yes well done Mark with your happy nature, friendly smile and a can do attitude.
Julian and Kylie Batchelor

Mark Riley was reliable and hospitable as well as very accommodating.  He did not pressure us into anything.  Excellent service.
Mark and Jo Nyhouse

The person who handled my purchase was Wendy Nielsen.  Her friendly, business-like attitude impressed me and resulted in finding the property I desired.  She was a pleasure to deal with.  She is the only consultant from over 9 real estate companies who listened to my requirements and understood exactly what I needed.  
Janice Cuthbertson

Wendy Nielsen assisted very efficiently with all the logistical/paperwork side of things and everything just went very smoothly.  We were very happy with the overall process and professionalism that existed throughout.

Wendy Nielsen was a breath of fresh air to deal with not your usual real estate agent at all.  There was no annoying real estate speak.  She was direct and honest.  She responded to emails and phone calls promptly and was happy to show us through the property on a number of occasions sometimes on short notice.  

Talia was introduced to me after I had had a bad experience with my previous property manager. As I live interstate it was important for me to have a manager who has sound judgement and clear communication when it comes to selecting tenants and is attentive to both my needs and the tenants needs. Talia has done both very well. She gained my trust and confidence quickly, through her attentiveness to detail and consistent communication. 
A. Schokman

Since moving our 2 investment properties to Elders Kingborough last year we have been very impressed with the incredibly prompt, professional, friendly service we receive with each contact we have with Talia. Maintenance issues are addressed promptly, rent arrears always followed up & a very detailed income & expenditure report provided at the end of financial year. Our properties have been managed by 2 other agencies in Hobart but we have never been happier with our decision to move them to Elders Kingborough. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Talia as an exceptional Property Portfolio Manager. 

T. & K. Young

I met with quite a few consultants regarding the management of my property. I was looking for someone who would not only have my best interests at heart regarding the property, but to ensure all parties were happy! (I had a previous bad experience and wanted to ensure my investment was going to be looked after 100%) Talia was the stand out amongst them all! She was courteous, positive, ambitious, excited and confident! She provided me with examples of other properties she was managing and showed great attention to detail. I was confident after our first meeting my property would be looked after. I have no concerns. Talia contacts me just to touch base and update me on how the tenants have settled in and how my property is being maintained. Overall very happy indeed! 
T. Parr

Talia has been a pleasure to deal with, clear and very informative throughout the rental process. I would wholeheartedly recommend her services to others.
T. Knight

We had previously had a really bad experience & going to & putting trust in another Real Estate & Agent was quite a difficult thing to do! Having said that, Mark together with Talia were amazing through the transition process & still are. Talia has been so professional & easy to deal with! Her responses are immediate & nothing is ever too much trouble. We would recommend Talia to anyone looking for, and/ or wanting their property looked after, no hesitation whatsoever! Elders should be proud of Talia’s service standards, she goes above & beyond and is genuine ! Our faith has been restored!!!! 
M. & D. D’Alton

I have been really happy with the way that Talia has managed my property.  She is a good communicator and very prompt in following up on any issues relating to the property or tenants.  Repairs and maintenance are handled professionally and keeping in mind my interests as the property owner as well as the rights of the tenants.  Rent is paid through the Elders account on time and with details of rental and any funds disbursement listed on the invoice.  Overall I’m pleased with Talia’s management of the property and would recommend her to other property owners seeking property management services. 
L. Atherton

Talia is a very personable and professional agent who impressed us from the very beginning.  She has meticulous attention to detail which we noticed in the way she has handled the advertising, advice and selection of suitable tenants.  She keeps us informed through the regular statements of payment she emails to us.  She communicates with ease and confidence. We think she is excellent at her job.
R. & T. Matthews

“Fantastic and Efficient!” – Since day one we have had zero cause for concern, I would have no problems in recommending Talia to any prospective property owners looking to place their properties on the rental market. 
S. Quarmby


I have known Talia Service-Hardy for about four years in a professional capacity in property management. Talia is a well organised, efficient and assiduous person who demonstrates excellent communication and personal skills.
Dr. T. Beaumont

Recently, while I was on holidays, I purchased a property in Kingston. Talia Service-Hardy from Elders Kingborough, has provided outstanding support, information and options for me since the purchase. This has been done mainly by long distance as I live in Sydney. It has been a big ask because the property has many tricky issues from fallen trees to a new laundry. Talia has managed everything without becoming overloaded or frustrated. Her abilities to listen, research, manage her time and seek the most advantageous outcome are awesome.
Talia has demonstrated sound choices in selecting potential tenants. Her communication and negotiation skills are excellent; attention to detail and her ability to multi-task is great. Talia is reliable and shows initiative. She has a friendly, professional manner with people.
I strongly recommend her to anyone as a property manager.
A. Mathews

Elders Kingborough have offered a complete hassle free and satisfying property management experience. Talia has a professional, consistent nature meaning as landlords, we are always kept up to date.
N. Lomasney & C. Van Dam

We have found Talia to be very professional and thorough in managing our investment property. From finding tenants, managing any maintenance issues and sending out statements on time we feel very comfortable that our property is in good hands.
M. Bell  

Talia has managed our rental properties for a few years now.  We have always found her to be courteous, friendly and professional with all dealings.  Talia always takes the time, and puts in the effort to find the ‘right’ tenant.  Not necessarily the first application that comes across her desk.  We could not recommend Talia highly enough, and will continue to use her services for future dealings.
