We are a family of 5, new to Renting in Avalon and it was quite a shock to see how competitive it can be to find a Rental. Melanie held my hand getting the application sorted and kept us up to date with every part of the process till we found the home we absolutely love. Melanie also took great care of us when faced with a couple of maintenance items early on and provided very fast resolutions. The inspection process has also been handled very professionally and organised to fit in with our schedule. Thanks Mel for taking great care of us - love your personal touch!

I highly recommend Melanie Axford as a property manager. She was extremely professional and helped us negotiate a positive outcome for all parties. It was a pleasure doing business with her.


After selling our house and needing to find a rental property quickly Melanie came to our rescue. It's been a while since we've been tenants and Melanie was very consultative, explaining the rental process in detail and ensuring that we had an easy transition to our new home. Nothing was too much trouble and we feel like we're valued clients of LJ Hooker Avalon.
