what our clients say...

All the "buzz" words - they are true and real and when it comes to Nigel Walker of Bay City Rentals.

"Nigel goes out of his way to provide excellent service at a very reasonable cost. Fast, knowledgeable and honest. Nigel is a friendly approachable property manager who goes above and beyond. I know that signing with Bay City Rentals was the right decision for the care of my property. I highly recommend the company to anyone who wants honesty, transparency and a professional attitude. Confidence and no worries about your property. Nigel is a man of his word and treats landlord and tenants with respect and sincerity.

I live out of the Region and found Bay City Rentals via website search. I contacted and spoke with three 3 property managers. Nigel was the last one I spoke to, I knew almost immediately he was the one for my property. I particularly admire Nigel's can do attitude, he is always willing to help and give advice, a true professional. When I had an insurance claim he took over and everything was completed and repaired to the highest standard, I had no concerns at all knowing I could trust Nigel to sort it all.

When I made the decision to sell my property, Nigel was just as supportive with this process as with everything else. Once again, I trusted Nigel's word and advice and it was the right decision."

"I write to express our sincere appreciation to you for your ongoing support and the effort you have provided to the Salvation Army's Transitional Housing Programme. Thank you for your kindness and your concern for others. You have enabled us to care for those who are often taken for granted."

Davina Plummer, Salvation Army

"Nigel at Bay City Rentals has been very easy to deal with from the moment we first contacted him looking for a tenant for our first investment property. This made things stress free on our part, and upon us contacting Bay City Rentals, Nigel was in touch with us very quickly to organise pictures of the property and start advertising for a tenant. He completed the vetting process for us and found us a great tenant. If there are ever any issues with the house, Nigel will sort them out straight away. Our investment ticks over nicely with us having peace of mind knowing it is well looked after. We will definitely be using Bay City Rentals for our future investments and would highly recommend them to others looking for a Property Manager."

Thanks for all your work, Tom and Kate

"I switched my property management to Bay City Rentals and I am so glad I did. They are very friendly, professional and really on top of things. They have already found a maintenance issue my previous property manager failed to notice! I live out of town so communication is very important to me, Bay City Rentals do excellent inspection reports and the frequent transfer of rent into my account have really helped manage cashflow around this Property.bI know my property is in safe hands with Bay City Rentals and I'm much more relaxed knowing Nigel is managing my property. It's only after switching to Bay City Rentals that I found out how good property management could be. Bay City are excellent at what they do and I feel so much better knowing they are managing my property. Bay City Rentals managed the transition of my rental to their property management company smoothly and made switching easy and hassle free."

Susie Warwick

"I am pleased to confirm that the services offered by Nigel Walker of Bay City Rentals to date have been outstanding. With living overseas, I know my investments are well managed and well taken care of by Bay City Rentals. I first engaged Nigel's services due to tenants living in my property who were not paying the rent, causing damage and were generally causing significant issues for me as a landlord. Nigel took over the property and took care of the situation in full, getting the property up to scratch through various repairs, at times getting his own hands dirty before tenanting the property again to respectable and trustworthy tenants. I cannot recommend the services of Nigel and Bay City Rental enough."

Brad Rutherford

"Bay City Rentals have been and are making my property investment a breeze. It's so nice not to worry or be bothered but I have the confidence in Bay City Rentals that everything is being watched over and cared for Nigel is good with people and building relationships , straight up and honest. I would recommend Bay city Rentals for Hassle free property investing. "

Peter and Sharon

"I am a house owner based in Auckland who recently bought my first investment property in Tauranga and was referred to Bay City Rentals through a friend. My friend has had a great experience renting his property through Bay City Rentals and encouraged me to speak to Nigel. Not only did Nigel helped me with renting my place within 48 hours of signing up the contract with him, he also provided excellent advice, dealt with my real estate agent and made it amazingly easy to rent out my property which is otherwise a nightmare especially since I am based 200kms away. I have been in touch with other rental management companies who charge ridiculously more from 8 to 12% of rent; Bay City Rentals is much more reasonable and the personal touch I received was just amazing. So before you make your decision to choose your property manager, compare the management fees, work your numbers, speak to Nigel and there's no reason you'll sign up with any other company."


It is without hesitancy that I endorse this strong testimonial for Bay City Rentals of Tauranga and Nigel Walker, owner.

Early in 2015 I discovered his advertisement in a local publication for Tauranga's businesses. The ad, promoting the management of rental properties, appealed to me as very professional in stating Bay City Rentals objectives, operational methods and costs in a concise, attractive layout. I called Bay City Rentals, spoke to Nigel, subsequently discharged Eves, became his first client and recommended an immediate referral of another property owner to him.

Nigel and Bay City Rentals continue to be promptly responsive, thorough and fair with tenant liaison, and to monitor tenant responsibilities to my properties with regular reports. Bay City Rentals has incorporated an excellent monthly and year-end accounting format which is data accurate and easy to reconcile. I am extremely happy to promote Nigel and Bay City Rentals management for both personal home rental as well as all varieties of rental property.
