The voucher a lovely surprise, one we will enjoy with pleasure. Thanks for all your help in selling unit 1. We will happily recommend you to friends and will follow your success.
Thanks again Maureen & Eric
We are writing to say a huge Thank You for your efforts in selling our home.
It's a big decision to sell and as such we thoroughly researched Real Estates/Agents to ensure we chose an agent we wanted to work with. We had discussions with 4 other agents before choosing you exclusively to sell our home.
We were aiming for a specific market with our dual living arrangement and as such, your dedication to real estate offered us the opportunity to sell just below our asking price in a down market.
We took your advice on weekends to open the home, on private viewings, advertising and solicitors. All of which proved to be successful.
Reality hit home for us when we signed the contract and realised we needed to find somewhere else to live urgently. Our search for the right home was unsuccessful. Your extensive knowledge and constant communication were the key factors in showing us through our new home and it wasn't even on the market!!
It would be remiss of me not to mention what happened when we didn't take your advice. We chose to move out and move in, on the same day. You'd suggested that this arrangement never goes according to plan and how right you are. My timing was out by an hour!!! If it wasn't for your professional, calm approach which soothed the stresses of the buyers, the situation may have turned ugly.
Bradley, we appreciated your honesty, integrity and individual attention.
We will continue to recommend you whenever the opportunity arises and sincerely wish you all the best for the future.
Please keep in touch,
Ian & Rae and Sue
"We have no hesitation in recommending Tim Burrough to anyone interested in a thoroughly professional approach to selling their property. We were particularly impressed with his:
- prior preparation for our 1st meeting with sound market research;
- ability to establish a price range and selling approach which met the current Sunshine Coast market conditions;
- skills in supplying a most professional photographic display including 2 virtual tours of our apartment - the on-line presence was clearly superior to those of his/our competitors;
- ability to convert an 'interested party' into a keen purchaser; and
- his negotiating skills to finish with a price which was suitable to us as vendors."
John & Jill Peck
Thank you, Tim, for all you are doing and advising to ensure a good sale. I deeply and sincerely appreciate your efforts.
.….Thank you for all your efforts. I am glad the house is being well received and creating a lot of interest.
…..Thank you Tim for your expertise and professionalism. I am very grateful to you for your assistance in creating such an amazing result on auction day.
We would like to give a huge thank you to Fiona Louie.
Fiona was honest, professional and very positive,
She also has a lovely sense of humour when it comes.to fickle home owners.
Thanks for guidance and care.
We will recommend her to anyone we know with a house to sell.
Geoff & Bridget @ Kiels Mountain
A few months ago we made the decision to move from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast. Thanks to Fiona Louie we are now living in our dream house less than 4 months after deciding to move. This great result was no fluke, Fiona was on the ball; she quickly grasped exactly what we wanted and set about making it happen. Within days of speaking with Fiona she had numerous options for us and all well within the specs we discussed. Not only is she an expert in her profession with an amazing attention to detail, she is an absolute delight and certainly went out of her way to assist us in any way she could. This is one organised lady with energy to burn and someone I am delighted to recommend as a person you can trust to find you exactly what you are after and make it all so easy for you.
Belinda Kerr @ Kiels Mountain
Now that the sale of our house at 21 Merlot Court, Buderim is done and dusted, I thought I would write to you to express my thoughts on the sale.
You handled this sale with a great deal of enthusiasm and professionalism, and we were ever so impressed.You gave us a projected outcome and then set out with vigour to achieve that figure, and succeeded in doing so.
You kept us up to date with phone calls, emails and faxes so much so we felt part of the whole sales process. I feel by doing this you established a good working relationship between us.
Even now it’s hard to believe we have never met face to face, our whole business dealings have been conducted via electronic media, amazing!
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone who wants a successful sale professionally conducted.
Thank you once again
Thank you Bradley for your professional expertise in selling our much-loved family home and property.
As you were recommended to me, I would like to show my appreciation by writing my personal recommendation for your sincere efforts in gaining a most positive outcome.
After finding the most suitable buyers/neighbours when I subdivided the family property some years ago, I had no hesitation in contracting you again to sell our home of 15 years. My family were very hesitant to sell, especially as we were not on hand to supervise any proceedings. I assured them, and my single tenant, of my confidence in your work.
You undertook this task with politeness, enthusiasm and thoughtfulness towards my family and myself, and my tenant was extremely impressed with your consideration, manners and professionalism with regard to her occupancy of the house.
Thank you for giving the new owners and myself the opportunity to meet. As potential buyers, they were also impressed and most grateful for your knowledge and understanding with regard to such an important life decision.
Potential clients can have full confidence in leaving you do the job you do so well. I have no hesitation in highly recommending you to do your very best for your clients, whether it be for selling or buying property.
Thank you so much Bradley.
We just wanted to let you know how grateful we are for the time you spent looking for suitable properties for us and then taking us to view them. You showed us some amazing properties but sadly they were not in the area we had finally decided on. Your thoroughness and follow up was outstanding, and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends. We sold our house through Belle Property in Sydney and our agent here recommended you and you certainly did not let us down. Your attention to detail and understanding of our needs was exceptional.
Sue & Bill Geary
You have outstanding standards, excellent attention to detail and showed great integrity and dedication.
We thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into the sale process.
We also thank you for keeping us informed on the market and responses to open houses and inspections.
We appreciate you were always positive even when we weren’t.
It has been a pleasure to have had you market and sell our property.
We have appreciated your honesty and integrity, and would have no hesitation in recommending you to other sellers.
Ken & Cheryl Rudd
I cannot thank-you enough for your assistance and advice in this process and I will certainly be recommending you. You have been incredibly pro-active and supportive.
Jan was a wonderful agent to have. We really felt like she was trying hard to find us the perfect house. When we flew up to look at a property, Jan arranged for us to see three other properties on the same day, to make the most of our time. Jan always phoned back when she said she was going to and promptly followed up on all our questions and requests. We will definitely be using Jan again in the future when we buy and sell our next house.
Penny & Marc Horton
Jan is a personable and professional real estate agent and was in touch all the way through the sale of my property. She helped to make the whole exercise as stress-free as possible – even finding me a new home. She was with me all the way through selling and buying both homes and I can’t speak highly enough of Jan and would genuinely recommend her to others.
This is just a short ‘Thank You’ message from both of us to let you know how much we appreciated the high standard of service shown by Bevan Horsnell and his wonderful support team.
From day one, we felt very supported by Bevan and his suggestions on how we should market our property, always showing us the pros and cons of any ideas that might be “on the table”.
Although we had a limited marketing budget, we appreciated the effectiveness of Bevan’s choices of where best to direct the drive. Even at a time best described as a buyers market, the amount of interest generated in our home was quite reassuring.
Throughout the entire sale process, we were kept fully informed and felt comfortable that all that could be done was being done to obtain the optimum result.
We would happily recommend Bevan to anyone who is looking for the best agent to sell their property.
Barry and Mary Clarke
Dear Bevan and staff,
Thank you very much for your professionalism in selling our house in record time! You and your staff are the most professional people I have dealt with in a long time. I have recommended your Real Estate to my friends and looking forward to dealing with you again.
Jon & Deb Wacker
Thanks for everything. We were delighted the sale went through so smoothly and quickly. Even though we were lucky enough to have found the right buyer so quickly I am sure it was largely due to your salesmanship that you were able to achieve the price we were after. I was pleased with the amount of time you took to explain selling procedures, advertising alternatives and contractual agreements. Youre feedback of the progress of the sale was excellent. We’re off in the caravan now. See you.
I want to thank you very much for your professionalism and the support you gave Noela and myself during the listing, sale and settlement of our property at Coolum Beach.
We were recommended to approach Belle Property and Re/Max to market our property because the previous nine months with a local agent on the Coast was completely unfruitful. Both Belle and Re/Max provided proposals but apart from a phone call from Re/Max to confirm that we had received their proposal no further attention was received.
Thankfully you came back specifically on the proposal and over a further two calls we had a proposal which was although modified, went ahead.
Further, it was apparent that you listened to our needs. While the sale of a house which was leased for a further nine months could have been a considerable difficulty for us, you continually showed confidence and obviously conducted your marketing with potential buyers in such a way that we eventually sold to an investor who took over the lease thus saving us significant costs.
Once the marketing began you were consistent in contacting me and making sure I was aware of what response the advertising was receiving. This continued as interested parties entered and exited throughout the market process and when an offer was received your took back my counter figure and secured the sale. Your approach left me in control of the process and I never at any time felt pressured by you to set or accept a price or to do one thing or anther and always felt confident that you were working for us.
Your support after the sale was also appreciated. When the sale was completed I expected that we would be processed by the conveyancing firm but I was surprised how much attention you continued to give to us. You gave attention to ensuring that everything was done so that when settlement was to occur everything was complete.
Overall, the experience you gave us was very positive and supportive for which we are extremely grateful. I have already passed on to my family comments and recommendations should they wish to sell their property on the Coast. Because of our experience you can be assured that we will search out a Belle Property office when we begin to market our home in Brisbane.
Again thank you for your support.
Re: Sale of 29 Golflinks Drive Buderim
Dear Bevan and the Belle team,
We would just like to put pen to paper to thankyou once again, for the successful marketing plan and resultant sale of our much loved home of 9 years. Compared with our considered previous poor sales experience, we expressed with Bevan a personal need for a seamless and professional approach from the get go. And deliver Belle did.
Directly after we commissioned the Belle Property team, all things agreed to on the marketing campaign were rolled out with minimal fuss and any major input from us. The weekly open home results/reviews delivered on time, as well as personal discussion from Bevan on his thoughts on how campaign was travelling over the 3 weeks. Auction day arrived (with sunshine!) and although not sold during auction terms the resultant negotiation afterwards (guided skilfully by Bevan) delivered a very pleasing outcome to greatly assist in our future plans………and for that we thank you all.
In closing we offer our congratulations to the Belle team for a professional, no-nonsense approach and attention to the sales plan for the sale of our home. We have no hesitation in recommending the Belle Team to prospective vendors, and have no doubt they will be a strong force on the coast for those wanting a high level of integrity, trust and professionalism under the guidance of Bevan.
Paul & Marianne McCann
We can’t thank you enough for all of your terrific advice and assistance, prompt response and action where needed as well as your professional handling of both our property sales.
Thanks again Bevan.

Recently we had the pleasure of dealing with Bevan HORSNELL from Belle Property– Buderim. Bevan and his team successfully marketed and SOLD our property at Woombye.
We had tried on 2 previous occasions to sell our home using local agents. Bevan took the time and talked us through the various methods of selling in particular the Auction process which we were very apprehensive about.
We took Bevan’s advice – Auction method – were very successful in achieving a sale in a short time – prior to action date - within the price range we believe was fair market price.
Bevan suggested – pre building/pest inspections – marketing campaign – open house inspections – signage – once we made the decision to go to Auction – Belle Property Buderim took over and all we had to do was maintain our home for potential buyer’s inspections.
I have no hesitation in recommending Bevan and his team from Belle Property Buderim.

We recently placed our property for sale[ under Auction conditions] with Tim Burrough of Belle Property Buderim. Being our first time in selling of real estate and unsure of what to expect, we found Tim’s attitude and approach nothing short of “Professional”. Our appreciation for his positive outlook, feedback and follow up service during the experience and for us achieving a result with in the time frame set down at our first meeting, emphasises that Tim is working with you and for you.
We have no hesitation in recommending Tim to any Buyers or Sellers in the Real Estate Market.
Lindsay & Vickey
I forgot to thank you very much for all the time you gave me today, my mind was still on your words, and advice out front of my home. Please apologise to Mrs. Tim for my fault in delaying your departure; your knowledge and ideas I had never experienced up here before so not only were my eyes wide open, my brain was in overload.
Elizabeth, Sunshine Beach
To potential real estate buyers and sellers.
I experienced the services of Fiona Louie during December and then the early part of 2013.
By that I mean, that she does what she does intelligently. I was a buyer and before she spent time with me, she qualified me to ensure that I was a genuine buyer. This of course was to her and my benefit. During our association, Fiona was at all times professional, thoughtful and knowledgeable and treated me with the greatest respect. She was spot on with the paperwork, and knew all the by-laws involved in buying and selling real estate. She was also delightful to be with, in that she has an open, honest nature, and that relaxed me.
I came to trust her from the beginning, and she guided me through the process of buying.
I’m now in my new home and am delighted with my decision.
Best wishes in your real estate endeavours.
When my partner & I decided to sell our house, we remembered a nice lady who had done a valuation for us before, when we were considering our options a few years earlier.
We contacted Fiona and had a meeting with her, and decided to put the sale of our home in her hands.
She gave us information on all our options, advice where necessary, and made us feel comfortable,
as selling your home can be very daunting and scary. From the time we invited Fiona into our home it was like dealing with a friend. We felt like she had made us her No. 1 priority.
We received detailed information about what prospective buyers were saying, and what buyers were looking for.
In the end we were happy with the outcome of our sale, and that was all due to the hard work by Fiona.
We would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who is considering selling their home.

“Now that we’re unconditional I wanted to say thanks for everything. You have been awesome with all the feedback, help and advice. It is really unexpected to get such great service from a real estate agent. I’m so glad I chose you over the other agent! Thanks so much for telling me not to take the low offer…. that extra $20.000 makes such a difference. I’m now going to go overseas after settlement to spend some of the money! I’ve let Mel at the office know my forwarding address. Thanks again.” Tina.
Now don't get a headache from your halo, but thought you'd like to see a copy of an email I've sent to Suzie Gray and every word of it is sincerely meant. Anyway, do come and have a look at us in our new home, it will be far too "cluttered" for your approval but we love it all anyway. Bring "Mrs Tim' if you wish and we can enjoy Happy Hour in the Leisure Centre perhaps.
Kindest regards from us both
Message from Lin to Suzie;
Now that we have finally sold and settled Rita Court I would just like to send a word of thanks for introducing us to Tim. We really appreciated his services and support. Tim works - and works hard - for his sellers. He is imaginative, resourceful, comes up with suggestions that don't involve big spending and generally gives the impression of keeping our interests at the forefront of his mind. Also he never stops trying and very important this, keeps the feedback coming all the time, never letting us feel "on the back burner" in this difficult market.
We can't help feeling that if we had had Tim on board earlier we could have done better and sooner. However, that's hindsight for you and we were loyal to people we knew. But if you do have potential Living Choice residents who are in the same boat as we were, we would be more than happy for you to pass our thoughts on to them and we would willingly confirm our experience
Lin & Brian (now settling into the Living Choice way of life)
Lin & Brian
I have enjoyed our dealings and found your input and response times during the sale process very professional. I will make contact with Lisa.
I just wanted to thank you for all your assistance in selling our home. You have been a pleasure to deal with, and believe me having sold a number of properties over the years that is something I have never said before. Right from our first meeting you and Belle were very professional. During the 3 week campaign you did everything you said you would and provided excellent feedback. The other thing that I was impressed with was the fact you didn’t try to suck every last dollar out of me for marketing. Trying to do full page advertisements in every publication etc….
At the auction is where I think you came into your own. I always had the feeling that you were trying to get the best possible result for me and not just make a sale. At the end of the day to get the result we got from just a 3 week marketing campaign in the current market was fantastic.
Thanks again Tim.
To whom it may concern,
Ariadne Australia Limited is a publicly listed Development Company which has a forward workbook of over $2 billion projects throughout South East Queensland. More specifically, we have a large amount of capital invested in Residential Developments on the Sunshine Coast. Accordingly, we depend heavily on expert advice regarding all property related matters.
Our organisation has been working closely with Dianne and her agency on many of our developments over the last couple of years. We have relied heavily on her strategic advice in relation to site acquisition, market research, design input and sales strategies to ensure our projects have a competitive edge in the market. Not only has Dianne been a valued member of our team, but more specifically, one of the driving forces who "get things done". She is extremely professional, well presented and continues to set the standards for her competitors to aspire to.
The other impressive string to Dianne's bow is her tireless work for various charities and local community groups. She relentlessly pursues sponsorship dollars for local events and is heavily involved in facilitating and organising many of Coolum's and the Sunshine Coasts major tourism events. As a result, she is very well respected member of the various community organisations. Her network of contacts within the Industry and local government has been of tremendous assistance with our business on the Sunshine Coast.
Dianne's experience and long list of credentials in both the property industry and local community are certainly worthy of strong recognition.

To whom it may concern,
I have known Dianne in a business capacity for in excess of ten (10) years. Over that period I have been involved in numerous transactions in which Dianne has been the Principal of the Selling Agent and/or the actual Selling Agent. In may of those cases I, as a Solicitor, have not been acting for the same party to the transaction as Dianne. Regardless for whom I have been acting in such transactions (be it the same or the other party to the transaction) I have always found Dianne to be focused on the best interest of her client and not focused on simply achieving a sale "at whatever cost".
Dianne's knowledge of the local market and her ability to steer her clients to the right investments is widely acknowledged and sought. In all my dealings with Dianne, I have at all times found her to be honest, highly professional and with a willingness to "go the extra yards" to ensure any problems that arise are resolved to the best of her ability.
In addition to her busy business schedule, Dianne has managed to find time to also be involve in a number of organisations and events which promote the local area and the Sunshine Coast in general.
I have the pleasure in supporting Dianne nomination for Sales Person of the Year with R.E.I.Q.

It gives me great pleasure to write a letter in support of your nomination for "Sales Person of the Year" Queensland REIQ Awards as our long association has been both professional and personal.
Professionally I have been your contact with the Courier Mail, Sunday Mail and Brisbane News for several years, we have had several meetings to discuss campaigns for your vendors, and their property has always been your priority. I have many clients and I have found your honesty and integrity, along with your proactive attitude to be a pleasure to do business with.
So when it came to selling my own property it was handled in the same professional manner either with correspondence or phone calls, not only to keep me up to date with my property but with the property market in the area.
It was very rewarding for me to see you win Sales Person of the Year 2000 REIQ Sunshine Coast and the John Heaney Award as I felt they were very deserving for someone who works as hard as you do.
Good luck with your nomination,

RE: Sale of 10 Whistler Ridge Dr, Yandina Creek
Thanks Tim for your help in selling my house. i thought that the agent who helped sell my previous property in another town was good but you exceeded all expectations. Not only did you sell a difficult property in a difficult market in only seven weeks, but you achieved the best possible price with skillful negotiation. At no stage did you encourage low offers even when you knew by botttom line. As for marketing strategy we were completely on the same page with internet and print advertising, open homes and price setting. You kept me informed every step of the way, not only through the selling period but during the contract stages and even after settlement. Keep up the good work Tim.
"Thanks, mate, for getting me a great price. A lot of money has shown up in my account and I am going to enjoy spending it! We will have to go out for dinner when I get over there--my shout."
David from California
"When you get up to the Sunshine Coast, contact Tim Burrough (0418 666 356) from Belle Property. We found him excellent and honest."

"Thanks for your good work in finding the buyer,I know we all appreciate the efficient and extremely pleasant manner you went about your work in quite difficult economic times."
David from Brisbane
"We really appreciate all your emails keeping us well informed. I open the computer every few hours looking for the latest! It really helps while we are so far away."

I would not hesitate to recommend Jan Withers to anyone seeking the services of an honest and reliable estate agent.
Jan can always be relied upon to give of her best. She is courteous, friendly and very professional. I was always kept informed about what was happening, either by phone or in person.
Should I ever need the services of a real estate agent again, I would certainly seek Jan Withers.
From the moment we met Jan she was always punctual, courteous and very informative with local market conditions. Jan kept us up-to-date with comments and feedback after inspections and with the process of signing and exchanging the Contract of sale. Within three weeks Jan had attracted not one but three genuine buyers for the property which very quickly led to an unconditional contract with a price exceeding our expectations. As first time sellers we felt very comfortable and relaxed with the sale of our home. Matthew & Holly Horder
The timing was far from ideal, however your resolve and tenacity where others we are sure would have lost interest, paid off. We have the utmost respect for your professionalism and integrity handling potential buyers. Dot & Bob Argles
I chose you to sell the property because you came highly recommended and I recognised that yoy had none of the traits of the stereotypical agents. You proved me right. Not only did you achieve the sale, you also gave outstanding service, went the extra mile, were always contactable and were extremely trustworthy and honest. Jan Annabell
Even thought this was a low commission appointment, Jan nevertheless showed the utmost professionalism and unfailing dedication “to get the job done”. Jan Murray
Just to say thank you for your effort and excellent job you did with the sale of my unit. You had the right judgement for the kind of clients who might be interested in my unit which resulted in a very quick sale. This saved us the inconvenience of putting up with a higher number of people inspecting the property. Also, your interpersonal skills contributed greatly to finding an agreement that suited both the buyer and myself. I have no hesitation to recommend your highly professional service to ant prospective clients. Hans Schwinghammer
