Property Management Testimonials


Nicki has supported us finding a place to lease and leasing our new home. Both times she went above and beyond in helping us find exactly what we were after. We couldn’t recommend her enough.

Lynn and John

We first met Nicki when we brought our house in Wanaka which had a flat which we wanted to rent. I have found her to be a great person and easy to communicate with and has been a great help to us in renting the place out to the right people as we are first time renters.


Finding a property manager that I trusted was a key factor in my decision to buy in Hawea. Although I had already heard great things about Nicki, I knew as soon as we spoke that she would perfect to manage my property. Nicki knows the local rental market inside out, tells it like it is, has a great network of reliable and efficient tradespeople and provides an excellent level of service for both owners and tenants alike.

Nicki has been our property manager for six years and has proved to be totally reliable. She keeps us updated on the property, organises maintenance and responds to us promptly. Her approach is friendly but professional and we would not hesitate to recommend her to others.    

Liz and Anthony

We chose Nicki Scurr to manage our property as a winter rental this year.  She was very organised, had great communication skills, was pleasant to deal with and we would highly recommend her.  Her attention to detail was impeccable.  

Rod and Rosemary

We are ‘out of town’ landlords and Nicki Scurr has managed our property for 8 years.  We have the greatest respect for the way Nicki handles our tenancy.  She communicates, she listens and she has a good understanding of what makes a good tenant.  Tenancy matters are dealt with promptly and efficiently along with monthly statements and regular property inspections.   She has made it her business to know the property well and then in turn manages it well, meeting our needs and the needs of the tenants.


Professionalism, high credibility – and a wonderful smile! I wish I had those qualities. It must be in Nicki Scurr’s genes. I never thought it would be this easy and profitable to rent out my property. Thanks for everything, Nicki.  I value a highly professional personal contact. I’ll stick to First National and you, Nicki.


How lucky we are to have Nicki looking after our property! Nicki’s professionalism, enthusiasm along with her care in making sure our home and  tenants suit each other is amazing. This attention ensures we can relax in the knowledge that all the administration is dealt with efficiently, the house is properly maintained  thanks to regular visits and most importantly our tenants are happy. So, to anyone looking for a Property Manager or a place to rent we would have no hesitation in recommending a phone call to Nicki at First National for a friendly, efficient, personal service.  


Nicki has been our property manager for four years. Having a property manager that you can trust has been the key essential element in the relationship we have with Nicki. She makes sure that any tenants recommended match our expectations, provides on time and regular reports on the current tenancy, actions any maintenance issues that require immediate attention after informing us of the issues. Nicki is a local and a great down to earth person, who consistently delivers great service and I highly recommend her.
