What our clients say about us

Benchmark has provided us with the best management team we have experienced over the past 18 years. Their approach has always been freshly direct, balanced and honest. Management is active, responsive and ongoing for both owners and tenants and their handling of communication between us is always sensitive and caring.

Through Jane and Lisa’s excellent management we’ve been able to keep our properties well maintained in response to tenant’s observations, requests and detailed inspections. We are supplied fortnightly with accurate and detailed records/accounts and are delighted with the ease of access online. Messages and calls are always handled promptly and the team excels in follow-ups.

We wish we had discovered Benchmark years ago and can’t thank them enough for doing such a professional job.

jane hobson benchmark specialist property managers

Jane Hobson

Property Manager

Jane joined the Benchmark team in 2014 after emigrating from the UK and looking for a career change. With over 20 years of Customer Service experience behind her, Property Management seemed like the ideal transition being an interesting and challenging role.

“I have worked in many office environments with a variety of different teams throughout my 33-year career and can honestly say Benchmark lives up to its name. It is very unusual to get a small team that supports each other so well and the team spirit is second to none, the management are extremely approachable, and the work ethic is well defined. Prior to moving into Property Management, I spent many years in Customer Service based roles so changing careers and finding this is a key priority for Benchmark made it an easier transition for me, so important for a growing business and in particular one that is so customer focused. I enjoy building relationships, resolving issues and general diversity of this industry and feel very privileged to be lucky enough to work for Benchmark.”

Building good relationships with clients sits at the top of her list along with taking good care of all the properties in her portfolio. In her spare time Jane enjoys spending time with her family and friends and loves a good walk on the beach.
