Real Estate agent and Property Manager for tenant, renting out house

Hi there,

I'm hoping the response to this question isn't going to be "read previous threads" as I've looked and found nothing on this specific question...

We own a house and want to rent it out (we are moving countries for a few years). We are looking for both a real estate agent to manage the process of finding a tenant, drawing up the contract etc, and a property manager, to be "on call" for any problems with the house during the year - repairs, etc.

I'd like to know
a) Any specific recommendations of real estate agents in Basel who offer a good service, and have competitive rates?
b) Any insights into typical rates charged for the real estate service for renting? I've had one quote of 8% (plus CHF2500 for posting ads - wtf?!!), another of 4% (plus hefty additional charges by the hour).
c) Recommendations of property managers in BASEL
d) Expected rates to pay a property manager.
e) Any examples of rental contract (what I've found on this site are sub-let contracts only)

Any advice on any of the above points would be much appreciated.
