Kate Reijnen
Honesty. Integrity. Customer-focused

Kate Reijnen has a deep understanding of the rental market in the West. She’s worked in real estate for eight years, lives in the area and is a rental provider herself. This means that she knows the Residential Tenancies Act back to front, but “I believe open and direct communication in most cases avoids the need to pull out the ‘rule book’, Kate says. “I feel all parties benefit from trusting relationships and especially for rental providers, a rental property represents a considerable investment,” she says. Kate prides herself on delivering effective, efficient and friendly service at all times the same as what she would expect from her own agent if she were renting a property. She loves problem solving — no issue is too big or small — and describes herself as a “straight shooter.” “I’m friendly,” she says, “and firm but fair.”

What you see is what you get with Kate, which is why so many of her clients turn to her for her reliable service and honest, plain-speaking approach. The strong relationships Kate builds with owners and renters speaks to her authenticity and history of achieving great results for all involved.

When she’s not helping renters find the best possible rentals and connecting rental providers with the best possible renters, Kate enjoys travelling and spending time with her husband and their two young girls. A keen baker, Kate also has a busy social life and loves to catch up with friends over a glass of wine.

"Consider yourself the luckiest tenant or landlord in Victoria (perhaps Australia), if you are dealing with Kate Reijnen at Greg Hocking Footscray. In my honest experience, Kate puts herself in tenant's/ landlord's shoes and just simply does her best to do the right thing. Thank you Kate for all your help in a very stressful time, by replying and communicating promptly and appreciate you making yourself available for an inspection at a short notice. Unfortunately, the market is full of amateurs/unprofessional and rude property managers those who are not willing to help either landlords or the tenants, in other words just doing this as a job. I was so lucky to have Kate Reijnen as my property manager - she is super friendly, professional, punctual and courteous. Thank you again, Keep up the great work :)"

"I have worked with a large number of property managers over the years and would have to say that Kate Reijnen is one of the best I have dealt with. We have had a number of issues with our property and Kate has gone out of her way to assist, putting in a huge number of hours. Cannot praise her enough."

"This journey started when I was introduced to Bianca back in May after unsuccessfully managing the process alone. The weight was lifted off my shoulders as I knew there was a team just as eager to find that 'perfect home'. There was no real timeline I was happy to wait as long as needed for 'the one', which was found by Kate Reijnen. I still remember the phone call and logging on to check out the property. Throughout the process I tried not to get too excited but with each update and phone call from Kate I grew more and more excited. 11 days out from the move and we are still pinching ourselves - it all came together and we are so grateful. Kate, thank you so much for finding this beauty and making this a reality for us. You truly are an expert at what you do. Your passion, energy, knowledge, commitment to getting a result was evident in every interaction we had. Through the entire process you were professional, fun, and answered your phone even when I was calling late, put up with speaking to my voicemail - we felt informed, comfortable and supported. THANK YOU so much"

"We have just tenanted our first property for this first time and Kate Reijnen has been amazing! From our very first communication via email, to viewing our house, always prompt and courteous and super helpful. She was honest and her passion really shone through, I felt comfortable knowing she cares about her job, especially in these strange COVID times. We would not recommend Kate and Greg Hocking Footscray more highly. Thank you Kate for making the process so smooth and easy."

"Having dealt with Kate and the team at Greg Hocking Footscray over the COVID period as a tenant, I appreciate their openness, compassion and obvious desire to be fair minded in their dealings with me, whilst being strong advocates for their landlord. I have appreciated their ability to negotiate an outcome that is to the benefit of all parties involved, in such unique and trying circumstances. It’s nice to know that you have a property manager that you are able to communicate your delicate situation to and know that it will be heard with compassion and empathy."
