Louisa is a fantastic property manager. Always replys to our emails. If something needs to be fixed,it's done in no time. She is very pleasant to talk to. I would highly recommend this business and Louisa Bushnell.

Highly recommend to everyone. Extremely helpful, courteous, friendly, with great communication skills. Can't fault them at all. Our property manager is Sarah Adams and she is the best property manager I've had. And will hopefully have her for a while to come, she is the bees knees!

Our landlord Sophie has been so great to work with. She is super reliable, organised and very prompt with any sort of communication. Any issues in our flat were resolved really quickly with an easy going, friendly attitude. Thank you!

WK&B look after our two rental properties and have really gone above and beyond in helping us right away after our purchases, helping to get rental contracts arranged, looking after our tenants/maintenance and repairs and really keeping things simple for us. Excellent communicators and we'd highly recommend them.

As a reluctant landlord (house purchased, home not sold) I was concerned about the risk of damage. WKB signed up three successive tenants who were all very good and left my new home in excellent condition. The tenants and the WKB staff were all easy to work with. I was particularly impressed by the efficiency and effectiveness of Justine Heyward, and would certainly go back to her if I have another house to let.

The guy who used to run this place was a disgusting human being who felt it was okay to scream at a young single Mother in front of a full waiting room because she was suffering financial difficulties. I was so embarrassed. I would definitely never deal with these people again. Just awful!

I was a client of Tania and Monique this past year and they were both excellent! Great women, very lovely and it was always so easy to get things sorted out by them! WKB has been a great company to deal with during my first year of renting and I really recommend

I only dealt with this company for a short while (as my landlord changed their property managers) but they were amazing! Very easy to work with, communication was prompt and clear and Fiona went above and beyond to support me. I appreciated the great service when I had it!

I have been a client of WK & B Property Manager Fiona Thompson for over 10 years. Fiona has done an excellent job in managing my 2 flats in Riccarton, & I have always been delighted with her professionalism & help in all sorts of ways as an overseas (but Kiwi) landlord. I am always happy to go with her recommendations regarding repairs & maintenance, as the contractors / suppliers that she recommends are great. She has also always picked top notch tenants for me & I have never had any issues with non payment of rent or property damage. I would highly recommend Fiona as a Property Manager.

Brilliant to deal with no issues at all. I've been with them 3 into my 4 year now. I have referred a friend who also found them easy to communicate with as well. Would recommend again.

My flatmates and I started renting with Whittle Knight and Boatwood Ltd half way through 2018. So far we have found WKB Ltd's service to be very inviting in terms of tenant and property manager relationships and also a very friendly and welcoming service. All three tenants share the same view. We look forward to our future renting with this company. Thank you

I am reviewing a particular staff member: Kirsty Mcoscar. She is an excellent property manager and an asset to the team. She has made tenancy a breeze, she is understanding, flexible, responsive, diligent and just a great agent. If she is a reflection of the wider team, I would highly recommend this property agency. Thank you for a very positive tenancy experience.

Whittle Night and Boatwood made our transition into flat life very simple and trouble free. Our agent Sophie Brinkers was professional, pleasant and approachable with any flat related issue or query. We would all happily sign with WKB and Sophie again.

My flatmates and I have had a fantastic experience with Whittle Knight and Boatwood Ltd as we have searched for our first flat. The property manager, Sarah, was really awesome at making sure we understood all the details and ensuring that the whole experience was transparent for our entire group. Would highly recommend finding an ideal property through this professional and client friendly company

Our association with Whittle Knight & Boatwood team is recent when we decided to rent a property managed by them. We had a hassle free experience thanks to extra efforts put in by WKB staff. We have found them to be highly professional, accommodating, practical and responsive not just while letting the house but also during our stay. Louisa Bushnell is our property manager who is customer-centric and caring. She is easily accessible; we have got response from her irrespective of a weekend or off-duty hours. Overall, we are glad that we chose to go with Whittle Knight & Boatwood to make our first home in Christchurch.

Whittle Knight and Boatwood are very professional and very well connected. When I relocated to Christchurch they had some excellent accommodation options available, and set me up with the right fit for my circumstances. Louisa Bushnell and the other Whittle Knight staff are friendly, easy to relate to, and very helpful - whatever your background. Highly recommended whether you want long or short term accommodation.

4 Reasons Why You Should Choose WKB


Your Needs are Critical

Most real estate agents spend the majority of their time and effort on their sales business. This means that their property management clients are typically treated to second tier service.

At Whittle Knight & Boatwood Ltd our property management team is dedicated to property management and looking after your needs. We are managed independently from the sales team, but are still able to call on the sales professionals when you are looking to buy or sell investment properties.

This means we are focused 100% on providing you with outstanding property management services.

If you are comparing Property Management Companies, we highly recommend you interview a staff member from each company – we have published a few questions we believe are particularly relevant to your decision – please read Property Leasing Questions – Comparing Companies.


Understanding Your Requirements

We understand what it means to be an investment property owner. We understand that to maximise the return on your property you need a professional property manager. You need a property manager that understands your portfolio and who understands what is important to you.

We fully understand that you are trusting us with an asset worth many hundreds of thousands of dollars, we understand the importance of your rent being paid on time and in full, we understand that you want to minimise outlays while maximising your income, we understand the importance of keeping you informed.

We use industry leading property management systems.

Our team consists of highly experienced professionals with many years of property management experience.

We consistently invest in training and technology to ensure that our team are industry leaders and able to offer superior service to our owners at all times.



Portfolio Management – You are assigned one property manager, who looks after every aspect of the management of your property – letting, maintenance, rent arrears and inspections to name a few. This way you have one contact person, who can update you at all times – there is no shuffling you from one person dealing with maintenance, another for letting the property, and yet another for account enquiries.

We understand that you need to be kept aware of all developments affecting your property. We do this several ways.

We provide you with a detailed inspection report, for every inspection we complete.
You will have access to our monthly newsletter keeping you abreast of the latest developments that may impact you or your investment.
