Dr Philip Harvey

VIce-President Operations
University of Canberra

"The next best thing after deciding to accept an Executive role at UC in Canberra was to ask my employer to find a relocation agent who would manage my move from the UK to Australia. The University has worked with Auslocate before and I quickly realised why. After a few Skype calls, Kim Donaghue had the measure of me, knew what kind of area and accommodation would suit and calmly and swiftly offered up details from property agents that were just right. Kim is the consummate professional agent - the kind it's great to work with - very experienced, with a close attention to all the small details, and with networks across the city into seemingly every profession, trade, utility operator and removalist. I arrived at Canberra airport three months later, was met by Kim and taken to the apartment, the beds were made and the fridge filled with those essentials after 27 hours' flying. A tour around the city a day or two later, sorting driving licences, fielding endless enquiries, providing advice and gently pointing me in the right direction - nothing was too much trouble. Auslocate's friendly service epitomised the welcome to my new country and city. If you're a newcomer and re-locating to Canberra, don't even think about using anyone else .... and don't think about trying to do it on your own!"

Ricky Stuart

Canberra Raiders Head Coach

On arrival back to Canberra, faced with my new role as the Canberra Raiders Head coach, settling our children into schools and finding a home that suited our family's needs we very soon appreciated the contacts and resourcefulness of Kim Donaghue and her team at Auslocate. Alleviating us, Kim organised a number of private inspections of properties and liased directly with agents. The service and support we received from Auslocate enabled us to dedicate time to our children and for me to immerse myself into my coaching duties.
Kim and her team were very understanding and thoughtful in all our dealings with them with nothing being an issue in trying to set up our life and structures back here in Canberra.
