Thanks to Anne and Mel, the purchase has been seamless. We have been constantly updated through the entire process and everything went smoothly. We would also like to thank Kellie for organising a tenant so quickly.
My name is Garry Parkinson and I was in Noosa for a week’s break and staying with friends in Doonan. I travel to Noosa four times a year and my friends are trying to get me to buy there. We were at dinner at Little Humid and we walked past your agency last Wednesday, we all loved a property in Noosaville and came in the next day and spoke to Anne Powell. There was a viewing on the following Saturday, unfortunately I was flying back to Sydney and would miss the viewing. I was just so impressed with Anne, as she not only arranged an inspection that day, but followed up the very next day. Being a gay man, I can’t begin to express my thanks to Anne as I found her so totally respectful, not only of me, but also to the sellers of the property. She spoke so well of the vendors and was so professional in every aspect and could answer any question we had for her. We were having dinner in Doonan the following night and we all spoke about the property we looked at, but we all talked about how professional Anne was and what a pleasure it was to be looked after by her, consequently some other friends called Anne and put their home up for sale the next day. I missed out on the property and Anne called the other day just to give me an update on what had progressed. I have decided to stay in Sydney for another couple of years, but when I decide to move up there, Anne will be the agent I will seek to find my property. So very professional. Thanks and Regards. Garry
Anne was always approachable, friendly and positive.

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.

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.

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.
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!
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. You also demonstrated high levels of interpersonal skills in negotiating agreements between the different parties in quite difficult circumstances. It was a genuine pleasure to work with you, and we are confident in your knowledge, integrity and soundly based set of business values will see you do well in future dealings.
