Debbie Copley

Senior Property Manager

I am the Senior Property Manager of LJ Hooker Kensington with responsibility to oversee and manage the property management within our office. I manage a portfolio of mostly inner city and eastern suburb properties and cater for landlords who have one property to multiple properties and vary from one bedroom units to executive penthouses. I provide the first point of contact to my landlords, tenants and suppliers to maintain an ongoing relationship.

I have won many awards, in October 2012 I was awarded the Property Manager (residential) of the Year Award for South Australia at the Real Estate Institute of South Australia (RESIA) awards night. As this was my third nomination as a state finalist I was extremely honoured to receive this award. I also represented South Australia at the National Property Manager of the Year for REISA which was also a great experience and it was wonderful to be recognised nation wide.

At the Annual SA/NT LJ Hooker Awards in July 2015, we won "Best Property Investment Management - Business Growth Office."

In 2016 I won Bronze for Property Manager - Residential (Eastern/City) and LJ Hooker Kensington was a Finalist for Property Management Agency - Medium for the REISA Awards for Excellence.

I’m currently a member of the REISA Property Management committee.

We had a few property managers over 9 years with LJ Hooker and Debbie is one of the best ones and she does a good job communicating issues with the apartment and resolving maintenance problems.

Dear Mr. Ploubidis, I am writing to let you know how sorry we are to be leaving the kind, caring, thoughtful and compassionate care of your Senior Property Manager Debbie Copley and her team. We have been renting a property for nearly 3 years and have been told today there will be a change of management. During the course of these three years we have had many issues with maintenance etc. The team at LJ Hooker lead by Debbie have been amazing and have been consistently helpful and considerate in helping us deal with each issue at hand. I rang Debbie to thank her today but I thought you might like to know what great staff you have and how much we have appreciated the LJ Hooker team. Kind regards and thanks,

Libby and David Lokan

Hi Debbie,

As we near closure on the sale of the house and the end of our letting of the house (I hope – still not final but possibly tomorrow!) I just want to express my appreciation to you and your team for all your help over the years. It has been a pleasure working with you and your hard work has always been appreciated. I think you and your team have been wonderful. Wishing you every success.


Many Thanks for your help in the beginning as well as throughout the rental process. We are now moving to a new property that we have just bought. The service from your Team has been outstanding, resolving all our needs promptly including few urgent plumbing works during the weekends. Many Thanks for your help.


Hi Debbie

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Kensington LJ Hooker staff for their association as Rental Agents for the Landlords of Unit 2,15 Peroomba Ave. It was a pleasure to rent the unit over the 4 years and 8 months.

Thank you

Margaret Miller

Thank you for taking care of the problem so quickly.
