Thank you for John for Everything!

Linda Pavlovski

Being from a different state your prompt service made things easy.

Andrew & Phillip Ohlson

Hello Melanie, Everything went through correctly, it seems. Thank you for being my sales agent. You did a good job. I understand that its not so easy to sell one of these South PAcific Units because of the large number of them which are often in competition for sales and because of the hefty body corporate fees. But you did well. You found the right person who must have appreciated its more secluded position. I will certainly recommend your agency to anyone who might ask....so thankyou once again.

S Jones

I would like to thank you for your amazing support pre and post auction. by being readily available top me with my questions as a new comer to the auction process i had a very positive experience on the day. As Mel says 'get all my ducks in a row'. so once again i am very grateful.

Sharon Lewis

Just a note to thank you both [Melanie Butcher and Anne Powell] for your help in marketing and selling our property in Sunrise Beach and marketing our home at Elysium. It is always great to work with you both, so professional and caring and we know you will always achieve the best possible outcome. We have no hesitation in recommending you both to friends and family.

Rob & Sue Hare

Everything was 10/10... especially the feedback after every inspection, the advice to use the Auction option, the detail of process that Laguna uses for Auction, the number of internet sites used, the cooperation of many Laguna people on Auction day, the good advice by the Auctioneer on Auction day, the pushing of clients to an acceptable price after Auction, the wonderful number of people present at the Auction, the large Auction sign on the property, the acknowledgement of payment made along the way.  I have been delighted with the Laguna way of doing business supremely professional.

E Shing

Good level of feedback, balanced representation of both seller and buyer requirements to keep both parties engaged to successfully bring the sale process to a close.

What was done well? Everything! Top professionals. Top people. Could not regard Melanie or Olivier more highly and thank them sincerely in a very difficult market and time for us.

M Young

Mel kept me up to date from listing to completion of  contract.  She also was spot on with her advice.  A pleasure to deal with.

G Dunn

Melanie was always available and easy to talk to if we had any queries on the property we were purchasing. Thank you, Melanie!

Advertising presentation, signboard and ad copy - excellent. Arn's commitment to a sale and enthusiasm for the project - the best. A bloody good job Arn! S & K Wightley

Sellers - Javaka Developments

Very professional dealings with Arn. No harassment as is not the case with other agents in Noosa! Look forward to selling Mitti Street with you! Andrew Bishop & Janet Thompson

Buyers - Unit 3 Sonoma 161 Gympie Terrac

Service, service, service - all through the buying and selling of our apartments. So very helpful indeed. Keep on doing what you're doing! Most happy and pleased clients. Judy & Ray Reed

Buyers - Unit 22 Petrie Mansions 4 Seren

We are writing to let you know how delighted and impressed we were with the service that Arn Smith provided to us during the time he was working to sell our 2 properties. He made us feel secure in our decision to go with Laguna because of his professional, friendly and honest approach. Arn is a true professional as well as a gentleman. He was always courteous and understanding of our situation. He was extremely helpful in guiding us to make the right decisions in selling our property. Arn worked tirelessly and was in constant contact with us, keeping us informed every step of the process. We believe that we truly had an unique property and it was comforting when Arn would reassure us that he believed our property was indeed worth the asking price. He proactively initiated many negotiations in relation to unit 1, including the removal tenants on a long lease, the incorporation of a pet into the body corporate by laws, and a crack in the pool. It was a difficult sale but Arn never shirked his responsibility, remaining positive throughout. Many other real estate agents were in contact with us throughout this time, trying to get our business by assuring us of a sale, however, it was always at a reduced price, but we stuck with Arn who remained true to his word and the sale price he achieved was what we wanted which made us very happy clients. Arn is definitely an asset to your business. We have no hesitation in recommending him and Laguna to anybody who may be in the market to buy or sell in the Noosa area. We may no longer have property in the Noosa, however we have made a great friend in Arn. Brendan & Ruth Moy

Roger organised open houses and made sure they were well attended by great advertising. Sold within six weeks at a fair price. He worked hard.

C & E, Ruston

I have dealt with many real estate agents (having previously been a property lawyer for 10 years on the Sunshine Coast) and I was most impressed with the professionalism and enjoyable experience it was to deal with Roger in purchasing our property. He kept us informed, was very approachable and did everything to keep us feeling secure and on track to purchase our property. Buying and selling property is a huge investment of time and energy and I was very appreciative that we had such a great agent to deal with throughout the transaction. Without us asking he even paid to replace 2 screen door locks & gave us a Bunnings voucher for renovations. Thank you Roger for being so great at what you do! Melissa Schembri & Pedr Francis

Buyers - 43 Sunset Way, Cooroibah

It was a pleasure to deal with Roger, who was always responsive and enthusiastic. He was willing to listen to us, and kept us up to date with progress every day. We would definitely recommend Roger to anyone wishing to sell their property and looking for a real gentleman with great marketing experience and expertise. Wolfgang & Judith Brendenfeldt

Sellers - 41 Furness Drive, Tewantin

After talking to a number of local real estate agents, we decided to put the sale of our house in Roger’s hands. Roger was always fully committed to selling the property and was always professional. He had a 100% positive attitude, he was always approachable, he listened to our concerns, if any, and acted on them in an appropriate manner. He always gave us feedback after open house. In closing roger was an agent that we would recommend! Glena & Robert Robinson

I had the pleasure of first meeting Steve eighteen months ago when I was searching for a property in Noosa. From the outset I found Steve to be outstandingly professional in every aspect of his work. He quickly ascertained my requirements and was always patient and willing to go out of his way to assist with my sometimes onerous hunting for just the right property. Having secured my dream home, Steve continued to be a huge support during the period awaiting for settlement. I was grateful indeed for his empathy in what at times were frustrating conditions. Throughout this difficult time, Steve maintained a calmness that would have challenged many. He was agreeable to all my requests and accessible wherever and whenever possible. It must be said that his warm and extremely trustworthy personality was always welcomed. I would most definitely seek Steve's assistance should I ever decide to sell. I would also have no hesitation in recommending Steve to anyone I knew who was seeking to buy. I know Steve must be considered a huge asset to Laguna Real Estate. I am indebted to him.

Personalised and Friendly service. Warrens local knowledge enabled us access to a property off market, after searching unsuccessfully for several months. -John and Sue Bennett

Buyers - 75 Ward Street

Firstly, Warren is the most sincere, helpful and amiable agent I've ever had the pleasure to work with. In addition, he really listens and takes on board exactly what the client required. I totally appreciate his gentle, calm and understanding nature which is a far cry from so many other "pushy"agents I've had to deal with in the past. As well as Warren, I had several contacts with the office staff who were friendly, efficient and extremely helpful (i.e. sending me helpful contacts, extra documentation) which allowed me to enjoy a very smooth transaction into my new home. Finally, I must comment on the wonderful after sales service offered to me by both Warren and Sharryn when I had a couple of "hiccups". I have no hesitation in highly recommending Laguna Real Estate, and in particular Warren himself. I couldn't have asked for a better result! Susan Storr

Buyer - 105 George Street, Tewantin

Warren was very patient, informative and helpful and he made the whole experience easy! Jennifer Bridgham

I would like to thank you for your amazing support pre and post auction for the above property. By being readily available to me with my questions as a new comer to the auction process I had a very positive experience on the day.

Sharon - 5/13 Munna Crescent

A huge thank you to Anne. We have been dabbling in investment real estate all of our adult lives, and generally speaking, we are not easily impressed by real estate agents. But we are so very impressed by your enthusiasm, attention to detail, professionalism and kindness. You are outstanding in your field and we will be/are recommending you far and wide.

Clients, Sunshine Beach

Well done on your sale of 16 The Anchorage! You just never gave up!

Peter, Noosa Waters

Anne has been an excellent estate agent, with a gracious and charming manner and empathy with the clients and meticulous in every detail, a delight to work with. I highly recommend her, she has star quality!

Amanda

Anne was very knowledgeable about the property, pointing out features. She was good with her follow up, always punctual, polite and professional. Anne is a standout agent and we have dealt with many!

David & Karen Lee

We could never have accomplished this sale without your efforts and encouragement. It has been a pleasure to work with you and our confidence in you and Laguna has paid off.

Paul

Very professional from start to finish. From the minute we walked in the door of the open house Anne’s introduction and greeting was a cut above the rest! Very open, honest and followed up with phone calls and keeping us informed - happy to spend the time to answer all questions. Anne also followed up during sale and just before and after settlement. Outstanding service!

Penelope, Noosaville

Anne - We want to thank you so much for the professional but friendly approach you showed to us while negotiating the purchase of our new home.  Over the years we have bought and sold investment properties and our own homes but never has it been such a breeze. We put that down to your experience in the field and natural ability to connect with people. We will have no hesitation in referring interested people to you who are looking to purchase in this area. We are extremely happy here and hope to keep in contact.

Alan & Lee

You provided an outstanding level of service based on your strong knowledge of the industry, and a willingness to  commit to our project as though it were your own.

Friendly approachable agent: I would happily recommend Correen. I purchased my property through her after a long search for a suitable place and have been extremely satisfied with the result. I found Correen to be very experienced and knowledgeable about the local market, she was always very friendly and approachable and had a great pro-active approach.

Tony

Correen has great communication skills and is a pleasure to work with. Thank you for your hard work Correen and keeping in touch.

Hall

I would like to convey my appreciation, firstly of the terrific job Correen Mackay carried out with this transaction and secondly of the super gifts (wine and other goodies) received by courier today with her lovely congratulatory note. We retired up here from Sydney to our Noosa Waters home four years ago, having holidayed in our Noosa on the Beach apartment for the previous 20 years and also own a Hastings St unit. In none of those local conveyances (nor for that matter in many undertaken in Sydney over the last 40 years) have we dealt with an agent so friendly, helpful and competent. Correen was forthright in negotiating the eventual sale price and resolved a number of issues ahead of the settlement that were beyond the call of duty. Consequent upon this exemplary level service, we will have no hesitation in referral to our contacts, whether prospective buyers or sellers, and trust Correen’s performance dedication is recognised in her good standing with your firm.

Jerry

I recently purchased the property in Noosaville. Correen Mackay was the agent and I have nothing but praise for her during the sale process. Nothing was too much trouble and she was always available to answer questions I would have no hesitation in recommending her and would use her again in the future.

J Hickey

Kept us informed throughout the process. Provided information quickly hen asked for! Friendly, out-going personality made a stressful time much, much easier. More than happy. Judy & Larry Watson

Buyers - Unit 20 The Nautilus Noosa 124

Excellent communication, responsive to requests and respectful of my objectives.

P Middleton

Fantastic. A great guy to deal with. We highly recommend listing your home with Peter Cherry from Laguna Real Estate. Peter familiarised himself with our property to best represent us to all potential buyers. This is so important when selling acreage. When organising inspections Peter was on time and always friendly and approachable. Peter was very considerate of our needs as well as fitting in with the viewers and never appeared rushed. Peter has been a positive breath of fresh air in his dedication to marketing our property. Nothing has been too much trouble. It was as if he was selling his own home. Thank you Peter for the best selling experience we have ever had. We wish you all the best in everything you do. Graham & Dianne Smith

Seller - 39 Arbour Place, Doonan

All okay - Peter Cherry provided awesome client service! Peter Charman

I found Julie to be very knowledgable and helpful. She listened to our requests and delivered. I will certainly recommend Julie to whomever needs a real estate agent in the Noosa area. Thank you.

Expertly managed by Tina Tillinger and Steph West. Our recent buy / sell experience thru' Laguna Real Estate was expertly managed by Tina Tillinger and Steph West - Wow! What a team! Their tireless work with us through Marketing, Open House and Contract negotiation enabled us to sell within 10 days! Our purchase was also managed professionally and went to contract quickly and smoothly. Some concerns with timing, legalities and "what ifs" were dispelled by personal support, giving us the confidence to proceed – we never felt "left on our own". Even after our settlement was finalised, Tina made follow-up calls to offer further assistance, as needed. By our presentation of a very saleable property and by heeding Tina's recommendations for our marketing program, all initial predictions for selling time and price were achieved. We especially like the team’s philosophy of concentrating fully on fewer clients at any given time, in order to return a higher success ratio. We are extremely happy in our new home and would readily recommend Tina and Steph to other prospective buyers and/or sellers who may be seeking a professional, well-proven agency.

Gail & Graeme

Best Agent we have ever come across! We had had our house listed with another Agent in Gympie for a period of 6 months and in that time nothing really happened. We were very disallusioned and frustrated. We just didn't know who we should list our home with. Needless to say, we contacted Tina Tillinger and she came to our home with her buyer's agent Steph. From the first 5 minutes of talking to them, we knew Tina would sell our home. She gave us a time line of how events would unfold and the process unfolded to the letter. Everything she said would happen did happen. She sold our home in 41 days. What an amazing Agent she is. The only down side to the whole experience is that we won't be dealing with Tina and Steph on a regular basis. They are so positve and motivated that a dose of them on a regular basis was really uplifting. If you want to sell your home, Tina and Steph are the ones to do it. I promise you, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

Ken & Jenny

Agent that has pride in her work. I am pleased to say having decided to sell my property I went into Laguna real estate and spoke with TIna, after speaking with Tina and listening to the advice she was giving i knew Tina was the agent I would like to use as my agent. From the moment I rang Tina to inform that I would like her to act as my agent she was professional from the start courteous, understanding, more then helpful,and actually returns your phone calls. After listening to her valuable advice and listing my property on the market Tina had it sold in 9 days. During the period of settlement Tina was always there for advice and in contact with any problems occurred. I would certainly recommend Tina to anyone considering selling their home. Thank you Tina for your professional courteous manner and caring attitude.

Vendor - Herron Road, Pie Creek

The one and only to use. I could not speak more highly of Tina and her team. They were the last agents we spoke to in regards to putting our house on the market and we decided to let them have it because of there honesty. She said that she will get list price within 3 weeks if we use her marketing plan..... and it was only on the market for 2 days. How's that for performance.

Vendor - Groundwater Road, Southside

Beyond our expectations. thumbs up to Joy and the team at Laguna! Having an easy ongoing relationship with the Rental division of Laguna, choice of sales agent was easy. Joy sat down with us, explained the procedure, what she was going to do, what we could realistically expect and answered all our questions. The result being our very first offer was so great there was no need for negotiations and we had a signed 30 day cash settlement within a week. There's no substitute for local knowledge.

Vendor - Premier Ave, Jones Hill

Joy was really helpful in making our first home purchase smooth as possible. Would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home.

Brad & Maddaleine - Buyers

We found Joy Corbett very easy to deal with,kept us informed,with every thing,very pleasant. Would recommend her to others.

Jerry & Linda

Joy worked very hard for the sale of our property, making recommendations and solutions. We worked out a strategy that worked for the final sale. We have no hesitation in recommending Jo to any prospective property owner who wants to sell their property. Thanks Joy for your hard work.

Paul & Sue

Thank you for all your hard work and professionalism during the recent apartment purchase. Your clear advice as we moved through the process was very much appreciated. Once again, thanks for all your help! Mark & Gill Shields
