Laura's contact details

  • Meet Laura

“As tenants, we had a great experience with MRE. Our property manager, Laura Moody, was very professional, experienced and knowledgeable. She was very responsive whenever an issue with the property arose and followed up immediately afterwards to ensure work was completed and issues were properly rectified. Laura’s prompt attention ensured the property was in great condition for us and well maintained for the owner. She also helped us in to our next rental by responding immediately to agents’ referee forms and made the whole experience seamless and less stressful for us. I highly recommend Laura and MRE if you are seeking a professional agency to manage your property or as a tenant. Thank you, Laura!”

Emma McDonald

Steve Griffiths

“I have been a tenant of a MRE managed apartment for the last 2.5 years and they are easily the most easy to deal with property manager I have dealt with in my last 10 years of renting . Laura Moody was the agent for the longest period of that and she has always been prompt in her responses and quick to follow up on any issues that I have raised. I have recently vacated the property and Laura made it the easiest move out and final inspection I have ever had!”

Gabrielle Fage

“MRE made my experience of looking for new place to live seamless and pleasant. The use of new internet technology made it easy to view properties, and to book appointments for viewing. The staff were prompt to respond to queries, excellent communicators and all the required paperwork was simple to complete. My continuing contact has also been excellent. Laura Moody manages the property i currently live in as a tenant as well as the property I rent out as a landlord. She is available, reasonable and communicates well, and I am completely satisfied with all aspects of her management.”

Bronwyn Webster

“My partner and I are a couple of months into our rental agreement with Melbourne RE and so far the experience has been seamless. Laura Moody is an attentive, friendly and helpful agent who always responds to our questions and requests promptly, and overall the customer service with Melbourne RE seems to be a lot more helpful and timely than your average real estate agent.”

Rui Ma

“I have just spent 2.5 years renting an apartment managed through Melbourne Real Estate. They have conducted regular and thorough inspections and have been flexible in timing of these to allow for my travel schedule. Any minor issues which I had with the property were dealt with in a timely fashion and they have been very supportive in all my dealings with them, including the move out and bond refund. Both property managers - Brenton and Laura were great. Excellent service, I would recommend them to owners to manage any property and to renters as a professional, supportive agency.”

Claire Singleton

“Owning a property while being overseas 90% of the time can be difficult as I've experienced from my first 1st year. I'm glad to say though that through the years Laura and the MRE team have made this workable with their high level of professionalism and effectiveness. No issues for me so it's all stars”


“Excellent service, response and support from Laura Moody throughout our tenancy - highly recommend Laura and the whole MRE team”

Anna Steiner

“MRE recently took over the management of our current rental property and as tenants we have found their service absolutely exceptional. We were provided a welcome call from Laura which gave us an opportunity to form the basis of a strong working relationship as agent and tenant. Laura Moody has blown us away with her exceptional customer service, nothing is ever too much and her solutions driven approach makes working with her an absolute pleasure. I have no doubt who we will engage to manager our future investment property. Thank you Laura for your can-do attitude & your wonderful positive energy you are certainly an asset to the MRE team! :)”

Keisha Weller

“My property is handled by Ms Laura Moody ever since I decided to rent it out as I am based in Singapore. Even though I have never actually met Laura, my property has been managed professionally and I want to commend her not only for her professionalism but her willingness to help every time I have a question. Her suggestions are timely and issues are resolved efficiently with a minimum amount of fuss. She has simply been brilliant. Truth be told, I was asked to move to a new property manager. I do not think that is necessary when I have a gem now. COVID-19 has been tough on everyone but Laura has stayed resilient and honestly knowing that she is managing my property keeps me sane and assured. Keep up the great work Laura!”

Mark Nivan

“If you have a property you would like to rent out, Melbourne Real Estate is the only company worth looking at (in my opinion). When I met Stephen (Fitzsimon) 5 or so years ago, I had no doubt that he would provide the type of service I was looking for, and I felt very confident he would deliver (and he has). Laura Moody (my agent) is always responsive, professional and keeps me well informed of anything and everything relating to my property. I feel very reassured that my investment is being well looked after, and that my tenant is happy. The only problem I have, is that they don’t have an office in Sydney, as I have property there, and unfortunately, I can’t say the same for the other agency I’m using!!”

Kane Baker

“The current climate with Covid-19 has been a challenging one for both renters and landlords. As my property manager, Laura Moody has been doing fantastic job in hearing out the feedback from my tenant and passing that to myself to find the best way we could help each other during this unprecedented time. After successfully come up with win-win temporary solution, Laura continues to provide regular updates for both my tenant and myself. I would highly recommend MRE for their fantastic communication and professionalism to future landlords and tenants alike.”

Dean Lee

“We have used the services of MRE for 6+years and have been very impressed with their professional service. Laura, our property manager has always been easily accessible, responsive & attentive to our requests or concerns. Monthly & annual Property Statements are comprehensive and timely as are regular property inspections. We would certainly recommend their services.”

Kate Macdonald

“Laura is the property manager for our investment property. She has been fantastic and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to procure the services of a property manager. She is incredibly responsive, thorough and proactive. What makes Laura so great as well is that she’s so well liked by not just landlords, but also tenants, given how responsive she is. Laura was even recommended to us by a friend who was a tenant in a property she was the property manager for, which highlights how well she is received by parties on both sides.”

Paul Dawson

“I had a great experience with Melbourne Real Estate while I was renting a unit from them in Melbourne CBD. Laura Moody who was my property agent was exceptionally professional, has an amicable personality and was very attentive to my requests. Thank you Laura for your patient support while I was settling in, I am indeed grateful for making my transition into the country easy and welcoming. I wish you the very best!”

Rachel Matthew

“I dealt with Laura Moody on several occasions regarding a property I rented through her, and she was always so kind, efficient, and professional. She made both my move in and out process easy and stress free, and was always really accommodating to my needs. Couldn’t recommend her and my overall experience with Melbourne Real Estate highly enough.”

Carly Sharp

“Dealt with MRE for a number of years. Very responsive from the outset, but in more recent years Laura Moody took it up a level and made any and every interaction easy and accommodating. Keep up the great work!”

“Thank you Laura Moody MRE for being the Property Manager of my rental property in Spencer Street West Melbourne over the last 18months. By organising the change of tenants , liaison, apartment inspections and keeping me supplied with Owners Corporation news and Property Management Statements I feel my apartment is being properly managed and I am being kept fully informed.”

Helen Pottage

“Ever since I decided to let MRE handle my property management, I have never regretted the decision. I must give a personal shout-out to Laura Moody who has been my property manager for the past 3 years. Laura is patient, professional and more importantly, genuinely cares for the people whose properties she manages. She is prompt in her follow-ups and when there is an issue, I am comforted by the fact that she will handle it and the outcome is always excellent. I am glad that Laura is just but an email away and I know she will act on it. I do not have to chase her for anything. While I am sad that she will be moving onto a new portfolio, I am comforted by the fact that MRE will continue to ensure my property is well taken care of. All the best Laura!”

Mark Singh

“Absolutely remarkable experience. Laura M has been a phenomenal agent and always replies quickly and attends to queries from myself as a tenant.”

Dmitri Dalla-Riva

“I just got my new home with MRE! The team - Laura, Maria, Jenie, and Jacob have been such a dream to work with. They have kept me updated with prompt and clear communication and supported me throughout my rental application process so it's as seamless and stress-free as possible. Can't recommend them more!”
