      Ruth Blunt

      Property Manager

      It takes passion, understanding and excellent communication skills to be a great Property Manager. The team at Harcourts Cooper & Co are very proud to have the services of one of those great Property Managers – Ruth Blunt. Ruth has been living on Waiheke for the past few years - her dream location - and provides the best property management assistance on the Island. Ruth has excellent communication skills - being a good listener is one of her strengths. She has built up a good team of reliable contractors who will maintain your property. She is also extremely well organised and has extensive knowledge of Tenancy Matters and has completed NZQA Certificate in Residential Property Management. With the backing of the award winning Harcourts team supporting her for the benefit of her clients Ruth is looking forward to continuing to assist owners with all their rental investments on Waiheke Island. Ruth believes that there is no greater reward than a happy client. Her aim is to not only meet your expectations, but exceed them. Owner Recommendations: 1. I first met Ruth on the ferry on my way back to Auckland from Waiheke. I had already given my property on Waiheke Island to another agent to try to rent but after meeting Ruth, her bubbly personality and her manner made me want to give her the opportunity to rent and manage our property. The results were astonishing - she had the house for less than a day when she called me to let me know she had several people interested. In fact the following week she called me to let me know the house was taken and at the asking price. The subsequent meetings with Ruth to discuss the formalities were always very pleasant, friendly and professional. I couldn't be happier with my choice of agents and will recommend her to anyone. - Valeria 2. I have found Ruth Blunt to be a proactive property manager who is customer service focused. She goes the extra mile to make connections between people and gave me confidence in my choice of Harcourts for my property management. Ruth is astute and demonstrates the relevant attention to detail that is important when setting up contracts for rental properties. She is warm and has a pleasant disposition and I felt comfortable doing business with her. - Jenny Curry
