~ Over the past 4 years Karin Kerr of HomeStar Rentals has managed my rental property in Papakura. Initially I was a little hesitant in appointing a Property Manager, but because of other commitments I decided this was necessary. After meeting with several Property Management Companies I chose Karin, as she was very familiar with the Papakura house rental market and I felt comfortable with her experience. Karin also kept me updated regularly by email or phone contact, together with a monthly statement. Because Karin was regularly in contact with the tenants, there was minimal issues which were quickly resolved.

At all times I found Karin to be very approachable and helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for her.

I certainly would not hesitate to appoint Karin again if I was listing another rental property.

~ HomeStar Rentals have been able to deliver what has been promised - Regular updates - inspections and very reliable.

Karin has good knowledge, both the tenants and owners rights and is able to carry out all of the tasks required by a Property Manager to a high standard

We are very happy with the service provided


~ As an ex property manager myself, I am well aware of the many challenges a Property Management Company faces. Working overseas we had to put our properties under management. Our first, and very brief experience - with a well known real estate company property management - was very far from ideal; lack of communication, tenants references not adequately checked and tenants behind in rent.

Since moving to HomeStar the above issues are things of the past. Karin and her team run a very professional service and i have no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective landlord.


~ Hi Karin, the job that you do is a blessing to many people that you house. For me, i am very grateful to you for the help you have given my family. I wish you much blessings and aroha, meaning love to you and your family. Thank you for the patience you have Karin.
