We have had a couple of rental properties managed by John Cook over the past few years and have had positive experiences. The staff at John Cook are diligent, communicative, helpful and professional. We do not live in the area, and they have always provided practical advice and support so that has not been an issue. Keep up the good work! Verified by RateMyAgent

We purchased our family home through John Cook a little over 4 years ago and they now manage our rental property in Orange. For the purchase of our home we found dealing with Anthony was just so easy, his a genuine straight up guy that works hard to ensure buying a home is a great experience. He's honest, reliable and has an intimate knowledge of the Orange and the market. For managing our rental, we felt we needed a change as the communication we were getting from our previous property manager wasn't great, we'd find things out late, return phone calls were sometimes 2 days. So we switch to John Cook. Jane and the team were amazing, the whole process seamed simplified, the communication is excellent. Since changing over it seems like we don't do anything, the team either call or email to let us know, then sort it out. Big thank you to the John Cook team from my family. Verified by RateMyAgent

I cannot speak high enough of John Cook Real Estate. As an owner of a Unit in Orange that John Cook manage I have always found staff professional, attentive to all concerns and issues.

Staff's honesty and fairness is above any Real Estate that we have ever dealt with. I highly recommend John Cook Real Estate.

Just a quick thank you for your ongoing management of mt property - I was only talking to someone the other day what a great job your team has done over many years and how I have not had any trouble in that time (or if there has been you have dealt with it and not troubled me with any minor matters); which I think is a great testament to the John Cook team.

Gus Arnott

I would just like to say thank you for your efficient service and co operation with the vacation of the premises I was renting.

Thank you to the team that handled the leasing of the property over the previous years as the service was miles ahead of any other real estate I had previously used in Orange. If I am looking for property again in the region I will be calling on your team.

Your workers at your office are absolutely amazing and they have always gone above and beyond. I would like to say thank you to you all, its been an absolute privilege leasing with you. Special thanks to Jane for all your help, kindness and care you have shown me throughout the duration of my lease.

Julie-Anne Frame

Just a short note of thanks for your assistance and professionalism in marketing and successfully selling my property in Seymour St. Orange. I was very satisfied with your realistic appraisal of the value, and by the way you made the whole process easy and free of worry and stress for me given my distance away. Please also pass on my thanks and appreciation to Jane and her staff for the many years of successfully renting and managing the property for me after my relocation from Orange. I have no hesitation in recommending John Cook Real Estate in all facets of your business.
