The sale of our property was managed very professionally The sale of our property was managed by Melanie in a very timely and professional manner. We expressed an urgency for this sale to go through as quickly as possible. The unit sold after 5 - 7 days of being on the market. Melanie conducted open house inspections which were very well attended. It was a pleasure and very reassuring to have Melanie's local knowledge of the current market exceed our expectation of the sale.

Great communication for interstate buyer. Purchasing property while interstate always adds an additional layer of complexity and uncertainty. Mel's local market knowledge, experience and regular updates were invaluable in providing us with the level of confidence needed to make a competitive offer which was ultimately successful.

I found Melanie to be an absolute professional. Her knowledge of the market was fantastic and all of my expectations were met by Mel throughout the entire process. Very honest and would definitely use again

Kerry Laidlaw - Vendor

Mel had a good understanding of the local market, its trends and specific locations. Mel was very responsive to our enquiries.

Mark Whitla - Buyer

Wonderful result from Melanie Butcher at Laguna Real Estate After consulting with 3 different agents for the sale of our 3 bedroom apartment on Gympie Terrace Noosaville, we decided to go with Melanie Butcher from Laguna Real Estate. Melanie gave us a realistic appraisal of our property, along with a detailed campaign strategy, culminating with an Auction on 30 September. Melanie attended all of the open days of which there were many, and regularly kept in touch with us to report on progress. I the end our apartment sold a few days before the auction for a figure well over what we were expecting, a great result we were thrilled. I think this result was in no small part due to Melanie's experience and negotiation skills with potential buyers. I highly recommend Melanie. The whole experience went very smoothly and we were delighted with the result.

John Ingham - Vendor

Listening and caring agent. I will definitely use Mel, the next time I purchase in Noosaville. I met Melanie who listened to all my requests, on a Saturday afternoon. Monday I was at the apartments open house (as it had been rented till the Monday morning). I decided to buy the apartment then, Tuesday Mel suggested what I would need to offer to have the place taken off the market. My offer accepted Tuesday night, I paid the deposit Wednesday morning. Too easy!

She constantly kept me updated on properties that she felt could fit my requirements. She never gave up. Finally she found a property at 20/2 Blakesley St Tewantin that meet all my requirements. She guided me through the whole process of the purchase without hesitation. She was a constant source of knowledge recommending the professional contacts that I needed to work with.

Mel made the sale of my property so much easier by her friendly and considerate attitude towards my needs in the process of the sale

Kept me up to date. Knew the market. Dealt with on site managers of my unit professionally, given the fact it was an ongoing rental being sold, and I am based interstate. Not her fault the market softened just as we listed it, but she said it would sell within a few weeks of listing privately after an auction. It did so sell at the expected price. Happy from the time of signing the Agency Agreement until the proceeds of sale landed in my account.

Paul S - Vendor

Joyce Schroeder (Vendor)

Just Excellent! Melanie found me the perfect property for my needs

Jill Nicholl (buyer)

We are downsizing, and fortunately for us Melanie listened to our needs and found us a little house that would meet those needs. Though initially we did not find the property very well maintained, we could see it had potential. Melanie was fully aware of our requirements ie - flat block, no stairs, and location near to Noosa Junction. So, with some renovations and landscaping, our home will be very comfortable. Thanks Melanie.

Jill & Raul - Buyer

Excellent local market knowledge, professional friendly attitude at all times We always found Mel to be professional and knowledgeable regarding the Noosa and Noosaville Real Estate.

I bought a home through Mel after viewing a property online, whilst living interstate and in Covid lockdown. There is so much uncertainty when buying virtually site unseen, however Mel’s information about the home, the market and the property’s history was second to none, and gave me confidence to buy in a rising market. I am very thankful for her knowledge of the Noosa region and her professional and considered approach.

Jane Hodgson - Buyer

Efficient, Professional and a Pleasure to Deal With Melanie was the agent who was representing the sellers of a house in Noosa Heads.

Buyer in Noosaville

I was window shopping Laguna in Gympie Terrace and out popped Melanie to see if she could help me. From this positive meeting we decided to auction my home. In retrospect it may not have been the best plan, whilst the auction was well attended it did not produce the desired result. After a few days of negotiation, we agreed on the price and outcome. After extensive trade inspections we waited for finance assurance and it all finally settled amicably. My journey with Melanie was always smooth and she has the knack of overcoming various obstacles, and never shied away from the tricky questions. A very good partner and mate.

Elaine Howell - Seller

Friendly, great market knowledge and Professional Service. I have to say my experience in purchasing a property and dealing Melanie was an absolute pleasure. Melanie has great local knowledge of market values even in this time when they are constantly changing and is very honest and down to earth in her approach which makes you feel at ease. She also has the right balance in always protecting the sellers interests as is required but explaining all the right attributes of the property including similar ones that have sold so as a purchaser you are well informed without feeling pressured. This then makes the whole decision process much easier. I would recommend Melanie to anyone wishing to either list and sell their property or in turn purchasing a property.

Gary - Buyer

Exemplary Service! Melanie helped finalise the sale of our new family home. It was such a pleasure to deal her and the rest of the team at Laguna Real Estate, her professionalism and great communication made it a positive experience.

Carolyn - Buyer

Melanie was great from the start and even after the settlement.

Skeeta & Steve - Buyers - Noosaville

Melanie was recommended by the next door neighbours. She had just successfully sold their home. The sale process was an emotional roller coaster as we were selling my Mother’s home - her beloved castle of 21 years. Mum has dementia & needed to transition to be with family. She simply did not want to go! Anyone can sell a home - especially in a red hot market. Melanie was a guider, a healer, a listener (to the same stories over and over again) and a sure friend in troubled and emotional times. During this time she also had to sell Mum’s home. She continually went above and beyond in a calm, orderly, dignified and professional manner. Melanie deserves huge praise for the care and compassion she displayed. Her personal qualities and commitment were always far more evident than a typical agent chasing contract and commission. We would most certainly recommend Melanie and her team.

Helen and Roger (Vendor - Noosa Heads)

Our experience with Melanie was aboutsolutley fantastic from the start all the way through to settlement , would highly recommend Melanie

Melanie worked above and beyond to sell our house.

When we finally had an offer made, it was realistic and fair making the final transaction seamless and agreeable for both parties. I would not hesitate to use Melanie again.

Julie Ainscough

Judy and Michael Middleton

Mel provided exceptional service. Extra/over access requirements were attended to without hesitation. overall very professional service.

H & S Kidd

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 thankyou once again.

S Jones

I would like to thank you for your amazing support pre and post auction. 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. 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.


Thank you Melanie. Just wanted to say how you made my purchase process so easy and stress free. You have a lovely relaxed style and I felt very comfortable with you.


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.
