She loves to help people and provides first class customer service, putting them at ease whilst working hard to deliver solutions that exceed client and tenant expectations. Rest assured your property investment is in capable hands.

“I moved to Cusack Partners because I had dealt with Alayna before when she had managed my property in Whakatane, My tenants are a challenge and I had no confidence in the people after Alayna left. I felt confident in your company after talking to Alayna and your pricing is good, which is why I moved my other properties to your company as well.
Signing up was simple, carefree and easy and I have no hesitations whatsoever in recommending Cusack Partners to others.”

Our satisfied clients say

No Hidden Costs

Before we hired Cusack Partners were worried about their trustworthiness and honesty, particularly for collecting the rent from my tenants and paying it to me, on time and accounted for. When Alayna left her last company we encountered many difficulties with the new manager so we did some research on the internet and tracked her down and signed with Cusack Partners. Since then we have no hesitation in recommending Cusack Partners to others. You always pay the rent on time and it is always accounted for, you keep us updated and at ease and we like the fixed fees that represent value with no hidden costs. It is nice not having to worry about our property. Thanks.

Gary & Suzanne Smith


Stress Free

I do not regret hiring Cusack Partners as my property manager and I would recommend you to anyone looking to hire expert property managers.
I have been very pleased with the way in which property inspections have been carried out. They have been both regular and thorough, and any issues have been brought to my attention. I have also had regular rent reviews and my rent amount has gone up according to the way the property market has been going.
I have had a really stress free time in dealing with your property management, and have always received payments on time. Whenever I have had to deal with the property manager, I have had a response either by email or text message very promptly.

Tiffany Rich


Saving Time and Stress

I can recommend Cusack Partners to others looking for a new property manager for a number of reasons.
My rent is always accounted for and paid to me on time. When I contact them always receive a prompt reply to my query and I am kept regularly up updated by them and have confidence that if there are any issues with my property or tenants Cusack Partners are dealing with the issue, saving me a lot of time and stress.

Duncan Mc Keich


Respect and Dignity

The property manager I had gave up managing properties and she put me with Cusack Partners, prior to that I had never heard of them.

I do not regret hiring Cusack Partners as my property managers and would recommend them to anyone looking to hire new property managers. The people at Cusack Partners are always friendly and make me feel at ease as if nothing is ever a problem and my tenants are treated with respect and dignity.
