Urban Residential


Being country landlords with a city residence we required an agent who was trustworthy, diligent and thorough. Amanda met all these characteristics and showed a commitment to keep our interests at the fore. Inspections and reports were always professional and on time. We were kept across any items that required attention and she worked hard to keep us and the tenants happy. When we decided to sell our investment, Amanda's efforts were no less professional. We would recommend Amanda as an agent of first choice.

Yours faithfully,
Terry and Laurel Stone. West Busselton.

After receiving a letter from Urban Residential introducing herself, we made an appointment with Ms Amanda Dorn to discuss our rental houses, which we previously managed ourselves.

We were extremely impressed with her ‘Professional & Efficient’ approach. After verbally going through her presentation, she left us with the Urban Residential portfolio. Amanda was upfront and honest with us from the start and happy for us to test her knowledge on any Real Estate Tenancy queries.

She also introduced us to her accounting system that is accessible to us on the computer to view our tenant’s payments, statements and inspection reports, which are extremely helpful.

We have recommended Amanda to our business and private contacts, as she really is exceptional, knowledgeable and very professional in all aspects on real estate.

My words for you;-

Amanda, I have found you to be very professional while having a bubbly happy personality, attentive to details and very easy to work in two aspects of your business.

  1. While the house was being rented. You were prompt with inspections and sent me photos since I didn't live in the state. You attended to the tenants concerns in a timely manner and kept me informed as to the outcome. Even going that step further when things needed to be attended to around the property, you arranged for tradesmen etc to get the job done. Wonderful service.
  2. When it came time to sell you responded very quickly to every email, text and phone call, gave us great advice, and got us a solid offer in just a few days and then sold our house within a week, amazing in a very depressed market.

You work VERY hard for your clients and best of all, you get results! And I was thrilled with the result. Thank you Amanda
Sent with much appreciation

Amanda is dedicated in providing the best service possible in property management. Her work ethic is outstanding. She is approachable and strives to provide the best outcomes for her clients.

Amanda is the best property manager I have ever had.....I'd be lost without her !

“Amanda has managed my house since July 2015. Amanda was able to secure a new and reliable tenant and have him move in on the following weekend after he viewed the property. A very significant outcome considering the current market. I purchased a second rental and decided to place this property in the capable hands of Amanda and once again use her expertise to secure a quality and reliable tenant. Both myself and my tenant agree that Amanda is fantastic to deal with.

Having recently sold an investment unit in Perth CBD with Amanda as our agent, we can confidently recommend her services. On first meeting with Amanda we were impressed with her enthusiasm and bright, bubbly personality and knew she would do all she could to sell our property.

We were not disappointed.

Although it was a difficult time to sell, Amanda opened the property week after week and always kept us informed. All enquiries and expressions of interest were followed up by her and we received feedback every week. We were considered and consulted in all decisions made about the property and always felt in charge. Amanda achieved a price for the property that we were happy with.

If in the future we sell or buy property we will definitely go back to Amanda.

Amanda we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anybody who is contemplating selling or buying and wish you continued success.

Colleen & John Bitmead

This lady has no problem adjusting to the time and energy needed to secure a good deal. She has sold 2 of my properties in a respectably short time & above my anticipated price, all sold with no complications. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for her. 

David J Mullen 

Amanda has just sold my house and I found her to be very pleasant and knowledgeable. She kept me informed  every step of the way and there were no hassles. An excellent price was achieved & I can thoroughly recommend her services.

John & Alicia Wootton

We have had Amanda as our property manager for many years now. She offers an outstanding service and is always very professional and efficient. She is by far the best property manager we have ever had and I highly recommend Amanda to look after all your investment property needs.

Tracey Stephens

Amanda had the property we wanted and after settlement we picked her from three prospective leasing agents. Since then she has done a great job for us, securing a fabulous tenant, always answering our questions and giving us her valuable time when necessary. Amanda knows what she's doing and is very good to deal with. We recommend Amanda and Urban Residential.

Kitty and Robert

Having been in the property game for over 40 years we have had a great deal of exposure to Real Estate agents and Property Managers all over Australia. Amanda is without a doubt the most pro-active and diligent Property Manager we have had the pleasure to work with. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone. Not only does she do the things that we think a manager should do, but she actively seeks more responsibilities with regards to our portfolio. We can only hope that this relationship continues well into the future.

Norm and Shirley Mews

Amanda was recommended to me by a friend after I was having a lot of trouble with my previous agent fulfilling their duties. I cannot praise her enough! Amanda is proactive, informed, efficient and an exceptional communicator. She takes care of everything and has always made herself available to my questions or concerns- as a first time investor I had a lot of questions!!

Through her tenacity and meticulous work ethic, my investment property experience has completely turned around; it is now a ‘set and forget’ investment for me. I highly recommend her.

Natalie Hunt

From the first moment we spoke to Amanda on the phone we found her nothing but professional. Being from the country and selling our city investment property she would constantly go above and beyond to help with contractors, liaising with tenants and ultimately selling our property quickly and for a wonderful result. I would not hesitate to use her services again and recommending Amanda to any of our friends and colleagues.

Helen & Sean O'Neill

Reliability, honesty, loyalty and obliging. These are the 3 top qualities I have found in Urban Residential. I couldn’t ask for a better property management service, particularly as they have accommodated for my need for documents in an accessible format so that I can read them. I strongly recommend anyone to use Urban Residential to sell or manage your property.

Zel Iscel

We do not live in Western Australia so it was really important to us that we established trust and a strong relationship with a Property Manager who is a good communicator, reliable, easily accessible and more than happy to handle any tenant and property maintenance issues that pop up with a rental property. Amanda Dorn at Urban Residential is all of the above. We are very happy with her service. She is easy to deal with, honest, professional and extremely thorough. We recommend Amanda to anyone looking for someone to manage their property.

Fran & Simon Lehrke

Amanda has a professional approach and highly developed attention to detail, keeping us well informed at all times. In April 2016, when the decision was made to sell the property, Amanda was swift to prepare what appeared to us a fair and honest market appraisal.

Once the tenants had vacated we also decided, with Amanda’s encouragement, to hire a company to ‘style’ the unit prior to the home opens. We used a local company and were very happy with their professionalism which resulted in a firm offer being made within a few days.

We would not hesitate to recommend Amanda Dorn. She has boundless enthusiasm and a growing list of helpful advice to assure a smooth transition. We wish we had more properties we could leave in her care.

IRH & EA Parker


Following some terrible experiences with a previous letting agent on our first rental property, we contacted Amanda to take over the daily management. Her continuing professional approach to the property and her acknowledgement of people who are starting their investment journey has been exceptional. Handling all concerns or queries from our tenants in a prompt and efficient manner has allowed us to essentially set and forget and focus on our young family. We could have continued down the path of a larger agency who showed no interest in us as people, but we are eternally grateful we did not. Thank you Amanda and much success with your continuing business growth.

Allan & Lorraine Campbell

Amanda has been looking after my investment property for over two years now. In this time I have found her to be incredibly professional, both in her dealings with me, but importantly, also my tenants. Any issues have been resolved discreetly and efficiently, which has eased my mind considerably being a first time investor. I have no hesitation in recommending Amanda and Urban Residential for all your real estate needs.
