" Making the decision to outsource our trust account to hastings + co , it pleases me to say that it was definitely the best decision we ever made."

Jodi Licastro - General Manager - P. Di Natale

“You've been fabulous to work with and thanks for the benefit of your knowledge and the on-site training”

Kay Righetti, Pt Cook Real Estate Point Cook

"I Just wanted to say a big thank you!! I have just been audited and the officer (Consumer Affairs - VIC) remarked how great and comprehensive our systems are. I was told we are running the most compliant and ‘smart’ management firm this officer has seen"

Barbara Kowenzowski - Director & OIEC - Heywood Property Management

"Just letting you know that we highly regard hastings + co, who completed both our trust accounting and payroll. Even if you utilize them until you find a full time trust accountant, this may relieve the pressure off your other trust accountants, as they are efficient and always did a fantastic job.

Another bonus is hastings + co did a fantastic job in reviewing our systems not only as trust accountants but as they are experts in the programs, they suggested better procedures, which we often took on board. They are also up to date with current trust accounting regulations and procedures."

Claire Beveridge - Director - Raine & Horne Commercial

Hi Natalie, Can I please just say how efficient your team is. My trust account manager always gets back to me/us so quickly and always helps us out. She deserves a big pat on her back! I just hope she knows how much we appreciate all of her help & I just wanted to pass that onto you as well.

Michelle Sheils - Senior Property Manager - Dynamic Residential

Hi Nat, I am currently so busy to the point I have 115 unread emails in my inbox and 16 voicemails on my phone but I had to take the time to email you because you need to know just how amazing our trust account manager is. I’m sure it’s no secret at hastings + co that I’m high maintenance and that in general we are a unique client, but I can honestly say as much as I loved and still loved working with our previous trust account manager our new one is a gun. We have had ZERO issues with accounting from the minute she has started and her efficiency and work ethic is like no other.

Rachael Angelotti - Team Leader - Hayden Melbourne

“We are continually delighted at the outstanding feedback we receive from clients who work with Natalie.  She is eagerly sought after for her technical knowledge, training techniques and communication style.  Her customer service standards are second to none!  When complicated things need fixing fast, I want Natalie working for our customers and Rockend."

John Goddard, CEO Rockend

“What would we do without Natalie when we don’t balance?”

Cath McLeod, Professionals, Ascot Vale

“If your new clients experience the same friendly, pleasant and professional care that you have shown us, then they will certainly be the richer for it.”

Laurie Raymond, French Property Dandenong

“You've been fabulous to work with and thanks for the benefit of your knowledge and the on-site training.”

Kay Righetti , Pt Cook Real Estate Point Cook

“Natalie is excellent as a trainer and is always eager and willing to help us with anything that we ask. Thanks for all your assistance over the years.”

Georgina Ziccone, Barry Plant, Berwick

“I booked into the classes with much trepidation as my experience with any classes to do with computer systems had been very stressful. Natalie Hastings ran the classes and was so easy to understand and guided me and the class through. I came to enjoy the classes so much.”

Vicki Beaver, Director, Raine & Horne Frankston

“Hastings & Co support service is one that this industry has been seriously lacking. I would encourage any PM Department Manager or Principal to invite Natalie in to their office for a ‘yearly’ audit or Business Health Check. Also, if you are a REST Professional user, you can’t afford not to have Natalie assess how you are currently using the program and for her to identify and explain more ways to get the most out of this system to improve your business.  I highly recommend her service!”

Carolyn Wright, Your Property Manager, Cheltenham
