Having an investment property in another state can be somewhat daunting and at times “scary” given the tyranny of distance and not being there in person to oversee and monitor developments and to attend to the regular matters associated with an investment/rental property. We are extremely grateful that we chose Margaret and her team from Cameo Property Services as our property managers. Margaret and her Cameo team have connected with us in a very personal and also very professional way and have taken seriously their commitment to act on our behalf and in our best interests. They are aware of “the tyranny of distance” and have always kept us fully informed of developments, consulting with us every inch of the way. This has given us great peace of mind and utter confidence in their professionalism. They also have great knowledge of the industry as well as local knowledge, with connections with all key players and stakeholders. Margaret and Cameo have gone out of their way to attend to matters on our behalf. They go the extra mile and seem pleased to be able to offer this as part of their service to us. If you are looking for a property manager with utter professionalism, someone who will take a personal interest in your investment and attend promptly to all matters no matter how big or small, with a generosity of response, we can thoroughly and with confidence recommend that you contact Margaret and her team at Cameo Property Services.
Chris and Vince,
Cameo Property Services have been managing my investment for the last few years. I have found them to be extremely professional in the way they communicate with myself and manage my property. The staff at cameo are of the highest level and they are always welcoming and polite whether it be on the phone or when visiting the office. I am looking forward to building my investment property portfolio and having cameo to take care of them makes it much easier to move forward knowing that I have this management support. Well done Cameo!!
I have been a landlord for approx 15 years and have had experience with various managing agents. After Cameo managed one of my townhouses I have since transferred another unit into their care. This alone speaks volumes. However, in specific terms they don’t hesitate to communicate at all times, follow through with any instructions given to them and present accurate accountable reports. I would not hesitate to use them for future properties and would happily recommend them to anyone seeking professional and responsible property management.

Cameo Property Services provides a great service that ensures my property is looked after properly. Much more that just a rent collection agency, Cameo provides value for the management fees with regular inspections and proactive maintenance and compliance schedules.
Margaret was referred to us by a Victorian real estate agent when we built our first investment property in Leichardt Ipswich – 2010. Margaret has been a wealth of information in regards to local services and has had an answer to every question that I asked even though at times I felt silly in asking them Margaret was fantastic in keeping us updated on the recent flood situations and certainly assisted in keeping our stress levels at a low. House just got finished and the rain commenced! During the finishing off stage Margaret did a great job on ensuring our builder completed all tasks to a high standard and took photos which then kept us in the loop which certainly was going over and above the normal call of duty. Communication systems are great and I am always kept in the loop and do not have to chase for information or service I am very happy with Margaret and her team and would most certainly recommend them.
To any future customer of Cameo Property Services. It is with absolute pleasure that I am prepared to give this testimonial to Margaret and her Team. As South African residents we decided a couple of years ago to invest in a property in Coomera Waters on the Gold Coast. What proved to be a long tedious process finally resulted in the completion of a dream home …one which we were sorry we could not move into. Having met with various rental agents, a colleague recommended Cameo Property Services. I personally met with Margaret at her offices and was immediately taken with what seemed to be a real personal commitment to each and every property they manage. Often first opinions can be deceiving, but not in this case. My gut feel has been correct! Cameo Property Services have not only gone the extra mile with regards to looking after our needs as the owner but also has taken care to ensure that the tenants are settled in and have created a home for themselves…from Monthly Newsletters highlighting that to all home owners to ensure that all insurances would cover any disasters in the event of Cyclones etc.(I now think she can see into the future, given recent events), to finding a reputable service so that the gardens are tended to and an email letting me know that the tenants had just welcomed home their new baby. Being so far away and not being in a position to see for ourselves, Cameo has been our eyes and ears and we are so comfortable and truly ecstatic with the service that has been provided and know that our investment is being well managed and well looked after. Thank you Cameo Property.
Margaret Baszko & Cameo Property Services have been managing our investment property since 2009. We have been very impressed with the level of dedication the whole team has shown towards all that comes with property management. Our property has been well maintained due to Cameo’s consistent inspections & level of attention given to maintenance requests when needed. Also, we currently are tenants in a property which is managed by Cameo and have the privilege of knowing the professionalism the team shows towards its tenants. It is reassuring to know that Cameo Property Services shows exceptional service to both its landlords & tenants. We have no reservation recommending Cameo Property Services as they are truly a high calibre team.

It is a pleasure to write this testimonial for Margaret Baszko of Cameo Property Services Hope Island, who recently sold my Ilanah Aqua apartment. It was obvious from initial discussions, Margaret had an excellent knowledge of the local market and in particular the complex my unit was located in. She discussed her plan to market the property and the sale was quick and trouble free. In fact, every aspect from listing the property to settlement seemed very easy due to the excellent communications via phone and email. I was impressed with the honest feedback I received after each viewing of the property. Margaret is not only a very good real estate agent; she is also a very nice person. If I ever return to Hope Island area to live, I will be sure to look her up to find me a property.

Being an investor, your prime focus is the management of your investment, without getting involved in the day to day issues that can arise. You want maximum profits and prompt professional service from your manager. I have found that Cameo Property Services does all this and more. It is the most professional management service that I have used. My tenants are looked after and my rent is paid into my accounts regularly. Cameo manages to balance the needs of the tenant and the land lord, making both feel that they are the focus of Cameo’s energies. If I had more properties on the Gold Coast, I would have no hesitation to transfer the management of these properties to Cameo. In essence, I would recommend the management of Cameo Property Services to any prospective investor.

Hi Margaret, I’d like to thank you sincerely for working with me to bring our tenants’ rent up to market levels. I’m still annoyed at the previous agency stance – which was, …”whatever you do, don’t upset the tenants…” In hindsight, I wish I’d had the recommendation to use your services much earlier. Your approach to the problem was very common sense and I think we achieved an excellent outcome for everyone by us personally explaining the situation to the tenants and getting them to understand why we needed to increase the rent and in what increments it was going to be done.

To Whom It May Concern, My wife and I purchased an apartment in Ilanah Aqua in 20013 with a view to one day occupy on retirement. The unit was currently leased, managed by Cameo, however, as we purchased through another agency decided to change to this agency to manage our investment. This was a mistake. For the next twelve months our tenant was not happy with the service being provided, we were unhappy with the constant change of personal and the difficulties in getting repairs/ reports and statements on time. Needless to say, we returned the property to Cameo’s expert management. I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism of Margaret and her team at Cameo, issues are acted on promptly and we are constantly fully informed on the state of our investment. We would unreservedly recommend Cameo Real Estate services.

To Whom It May Concern I have owned an apartment in Ilanah Aqua since July 2012 and have enjoyed the services of Cameo Property throughout this period. I have found Margaret and her team to be professional and extremely conscientious. Inspections are conducted on a regular basis and I receive a professional report on the condition and presentation of my investment. Arrears has never been a problem. As Margaret personally lives at Ilanah Aqua she not only is current with what is happening at the resort but she also is well versed in its unique selling points and is a great ambassador for Ilanah Aqua and for her owners. I own several investment properties and I find that Cameo are head and shoulders above most property managers.

To Whom It May Concern I would without a doubt recommend Margaret Baszko and the team at Cameo Property Management Services. They are personally committed to ensuring the most effective outcome for us as a landlord, and that in turn ensures we have a solid investment, and most importantly, peace of mind.

To Whom It May Concern I have recently purchased an apartment in Ilanah Aqua and the Real Estate Agent who handled the sale was Margaret Baszko of Cameo Property Services. I found her approach to be thoroughly professional and her in depth knowledge of Ilanah Aqua and its history to be very impressive. She always communicated via phone or email in a timely manner and facilitated the various parries who required access to the property during the purchase process. I like the complex and ultimately intend to live there. However, for the next few years I will be letting the property and have entrusted Cameo Property Services to manage the property. The company’s knowledge of all things Ilanah Aqua is comforting for a landlord. The staff have been courteous and communications timely. I am pleased with the rental return and the advice that has been offered. I have no hesitation in recommending Cameo Property Services to either manage or sell their property in Ilanah Aqua.

To Whom It May Concern. Cameo is a very good trustworthy agency who have handled my property for many years. Margaret and her team have been professional and assisted me in running this property with diligence and care. I have no hesitation in recommending this agency to anyone. Her desire to get the best price (rent) and keeping it at market value also now I’m on the point of selling getting a good price for me. I am sure anyone dealing with this agency will have no problems.
Margaret Baszko from Cameo Property Services helped us find and purchase the right property now that we are retired and were thinking of downsizing. Right from the start we were impressed by the quality and professionalism of her work. Margaret went to a lot of effort to find and help purchase the property we wanted. When it came to renting the property we didn’t think of going elsewhere; Margaret and the staff at Cameo are friendly, helpful and efficient. We would recommend them to all.

To Whom it may Concern Approx. 3 years ago we made the decision to appoint Cameo Properties to manage the letting of our apartment in Ilanah Aqua. Right from the very first day we have had the most professional service that has gone over and above expectations. At all times from our initial discussions with Margaret Baszko we have found that she has worked in our interest at all times from ensuring that we had the most suitable tenants paying the best possible market rental. We have never had any issues at all in this whole time with either Cameo or the tenants. Recently Cameo implemented a new payment system and we now receive an email advice clearly stating payments made for the previous period in an easy to read statement. I have found that above all else Cameo strive to get the best results for their clients and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any owners considering letting their apartment or possibly selling.
