"Margay Property Management has been employed by us since January 2003 for the rental management of our Gulf Harbour property. During that time, Jayne and Clinton Cowley have always provided a reliable, expert and professional service.

They have shown a wonderful level of commitment to us as owners and kept us regularly informed of all tenant, maintenance and market issues.
We have no hesitation in recommending them as proficient property managers who will provide owners peace of mind and confidence that their property is in good hands.

"Jayne & Clinton at Margay Property Management have been my Property Management agents for over 15 years. They have handled all activities related to the letting and maintenance of two houses, while I have lived overseas.


They have provided a very comprehensive and professional service, while at the same time maintaining a harmonious rapport with the Tenants.

My houses have always been fully occupied, with Margay seemlessly finding new tenants when necessary at the end of tenancies.  They conduct regular surveys of the properties and advise me of any required maintenance work.  They arrange for suitable contractors to quote for any necessary work and ensure that such work is carried out to a suitable standard.  They regularly review the rental rates and are instrumental in notifying tenants of increases to keep in line with rental market trends in the area.  They provide itemized and detailed monthly reports by email to enable easy control and understanding of income and outgoings.

I have always had an extremely good working relationship with Jayne & Clinton who have had no hesistation in "going the extra" for me.  I can unreservedly recommend Margay Property Management's services to anyone looking for truly professional agents to manage their investment properties.

Yours sincerely,

Graeme Seaton

"I have always had total confidence it was in good hands. I've appreciated the excellent communications you've provided and it's always been reassuring to know, while I've been travelling about, that if anything needed attending to you'd be right onto it.

Thank you Jayne and Clinton for your very professional service you have provided while managing my property for the last few years.  I have always had total confidence it was in good hands.  I've appreciated the excellent communications you've provided and it's always been reassuring to know, while I've been travelling about, that if anything needed attending to you'd be right onto it.

It's likely I will be using your service again in the future.

In the meantime, I am sure your business will flourish given the service you provide

"Jayne and Clinton Cowley were recommended to me after I had suffered the vagaries and expense of poor management, and they have restored my faith in property management.

From the outset, their service has been consistently professional, efficient and effective. They demonstrate comendable people skills which result in happy tenants, a well maintained property, and happy landlords. Switchover of tenants has been seamless and the property has never been empty. In fact I've hardly known the property has been there. I recommend Jayne and Clinton very highly and they will be my first choice in property management should the need arise again.

Dr Jenny Cartwright

"They offer a comprehensive, efficient and effective property management service. We as the property owners have been involved as much or as little as we wished to be at any given time.

Jayne and Clinton demonstrate excellent communication and organisational skills. They have always been flexible and put our needs first. There has been a good rate of occupancy/tenancy in our holiday home with premium rental return. We have had the benefit of being able to enjoy our holiday home for ourselves as well as enjoying the other benefits owning a rental property can achieve.

We would, without hesitation recommend Margay Realty for excellence in property management services.

Neil Johnson

"My wife and I live in the UK and for the last five years our home has been rented out and managed by Margay Realty Ltd.

Clinton and Jayne Cowley have obviously been careful in selecting tenants as they have always found reliable and responsible ones. They have immediately consulted us about any maintenance issues that have arisen, then dealt with them promptly. In the process, they have always been a pleasure to deal with, whether by email, or in person when we have been home and inspected our property with them. We have no hesitation in recommending them as property managers to others, as they have been outstanding in the way they have managed ours.

Paul and Mary Grimmer

"For the first time we have used Margay Property Management to place tenants in our property.

They have been absolutely thorough in vetting prospective tenants, going the extra miles, and communicating with us throughout the process.  

I have complete confidence in their advice to us at all times, and will use them again.

"I would recommend Margay Realty/ Jayne and Clinton Cowley to anyone wanting property managers who really understand what providing a fully professional service entails.

Clinton and Jayne Cowley have been managing property for us for around four years, starting with our first investment property on the peninsula, and now looking after all three.

This has been a totally stress-free experience for us, Clinton and Jayne have taken care of everything from ensuring rents are paid on time, new tenants arranged and vetted, remedial work required on one property, to taking care of the repairs required after a lightning strike. All this has been done in an intelligent, efficient and professional manner.

I would recommend Margay Realty/ Jayne and Clinton Cowley to anyone wanting property managers who really understand what providing a fully professional service entails. Although we now live within a few minutes driving of all our investment properties, we would not even contemplate trying to manage them ourselves while we have such professionals on the job.

"We, and friends of ours that we have referred, have had rental properties managed by Margay Realty Ltd for many years now and we cannot fault their professional, personal, on time, service.

We, and friends of ours that we have referred, have had rental properties managed by Margay Realty Ltd for many years now and we cannot fault their professional, personal, on time, service. They have been in the business for 14 years now and their experience in handling so many different landlord, tenant, relationship situations is so vast that there will be very few, or no surprises, that the team haven't successfully encountered. Linda and I wish to highly recommend the Margay team to anyone seeking property management expertise on the North Shore, experience is the difference.

"I thought I must let others know how fantastic we think you are!!

I've just received the latest Routine condition report of our rental property.  This time I thought I must let others know how fantastic we think you are!!

You well and truly earn your fee.  It's just wonderful to be able to deal with a company you can fully trust.   When there is an issue you deal with it taking all the stress from us.  The Tenants on both occasions have been great.  

We do appreciate all you do.  You do exceed expectations.  Thank you!!
