We received a career transfer in December and only had a very short timeframe to sell our house. We are still in shock at the speed in which everything happened. Ray White was exceptionally helpful in organising things from the pool fence certification to looking after things when we were gone. He couldn’t have done anything more. He is just an all round good bloke.

We had already listed our property with another agent and company and had not been completely happy with the service that was being provided to us. Although we were not listed with Ray White, They made the effort to keep in touch with us to see how our property was progressing and keep us up to date with what was happening in the market place. We stayed with our original agent through our exclusive listing period and for a further three weeks but were unsatisfied with their performance and the fact that our property had not sold in nearly 12 weeks. Ray White sold our property within 3 weeks of listing and at a price that was considerably greater than what we had listed with the previous agent. They made us feel at ease whilst making the whole episode of selling our property far less stressful.

The sale of our first home and relocation to another city was emotional enough, but added to this stressful situation was the recent tragic loss of our first child. Ray White was excellent in guiding us through the process of selling which helped put our minds at ease during such a challenging period in our lives. We received honest feedback in relation to marketing issues such as advertising and presentation of the property. They kept us fully informed on the feedback expressed by potential buyers after every inspectin, and was extremely proactive in his approach to keeping potential buyers motivated and eager to participate in the sale of our property via Auction. Although hesitant at first, explaination of the Auction process and how this could achieve the best possible outcome was convincing and ultimately was the best decision for the sale of our property.

Being a first home buyer as well as being new in Australia, I was certainly nervous about buying a house through an auction. I had only seen the property two weeks prior to the auction, and was not at all prepared to begin with. However, Ray White guided me and worked extremely hard with me to get me well and truly prepared. They worked around my busy work schedule to accommodate my needs. Both Ray White and the Loan Market, who also worked devotedly to get my loan pre approval on a very short notice and provided comprehensive guidance regarding my finances, sat next to me at the time of auction to give me the extra support. The process was made very simple, easy and actually quite fun thanks to these guys at Ray White. I look forward to working with them in the future as well and wish them the best of luck for all their future endeavours.
After Being on the market with two previous agents for 8 months and told we would never sell, we got what we wanted. Going through the Auction process, we had 24 inspections and were on the market for only 5 weeks before we got an offer we were happy to accept. We have had great communication, a few ups and downs but the commitment throughout from Ray White was never questioned. If you are thinking of Selling, we would not hesitate a recommendation
-Rick and Noleen, Kirwan
When Ray White called to discuss the process involved in putting my house up for Auction, I was not only impressed by the knowledge and insight in regards to the real estate market, but also the professionalism and understanding of the particular situation. They explained the process step by step and advised me every step of the way. I was very impressed by the dedication to detail and the very professional way in which Ray White marketed my property to its full advantage. The endeavours saw a successful sale in a very short amount of time, saving me the stress of a long drawn out process.

Ray White has been thorough with all aspects of the sale, conscientious about our needs and extremely professional. When dealing with us the agents always had relevant information already prepared to present to us which was helpful to make the most of our meeting times. They were always able to be present when dealing with us, never getting bored or distracted but always realizing the importance of each situation.
-Dawn and Marko Martilla, Heatley - October 2012
When we decided to put our property on the market a year later Ray White was the only agent who had kept in contact with us regularly after that first meeting and provided a service of useful information on the market. When our home sold for above our expectation and reserve at the Ray White auction night we were very glad we had chosen Ray White and agreed to auction our home

Thank you for assigning Jaimi to my lease. Really she is a great addition to your team; we have had a number of conversations all ending on a good note. Thank you once again and I will be a week ahead rent in no time.- Ryan - November 2012
My partner and I have been looking for rental properties for some time, dealing with a lot of Property Management companies in Townsville. We are both professional business people, add on top of this, we also own a business and as such, time is not something that we have a great deal of. So for us to view a property during business hours is quite difficult.
I do not often write letters like this however I felt that in this instance, it is well deserved.
I have never dealt with such a professional organisation. My first dealings were with Nicole. She has the customer service skills of someone well beyond her years. Her communication skills are second to none, I received an email back from her within hours of my enquiry, her ability to ask the right questions on the phone when dealing with my enquiry was un-paramount. Thanks to her skill set, not only were we able to book a viewing time for the property we wanted to view but she also booked us in for some more viewings on properties that were what we were looking for. As the market is very tight at the moment, Nicole also helped us with an application form and guided us though everything that we needed.
Upon our viewing, we got to meet Chrissie. As soon as we walked into the property, her bubly and warm personality shone through. Nothing was too big a deal, every question we had got answered with a smile, in fact, she also advised us on other properties she had for viewing and what she had coming up.
After viewing these properties, my partner and I continued to look through the web to see what other properties were available. However, we found ourselves overlooking the other properties due to the fact they were not listed by Ray White Townsville City. This is an organisation of people that I want to deal with.- S.J.

I just wanted to say well done Ray White Townsville City and staff. On Saturday, I came in to have a look at your latest rentals. Your new system made this very easy and stress free by the use of the new brochure showing what time the house openings are. It allows you to get to the houses in a timely fashion and also the plus side of being able to ask any questions. All of your staff members have been extremely friendly. Thank you for the wonderful service you provide.- Sylvia - November 2012
Jaimi is the first Property Manager to inform me that my current tenants are always behind with their rent and she is the fourth Property Manager that has dealt with my property. I do appreciate being kept informed and up to date with all news, good or bad, relating to my property. Jaimi, I congratulate and thank you for not only informing me but for showing enough enthusiasm to have a look at the clients’ rental history. Please continue to be proactive; I think Ray White needs more of ‘you’.- Donna - November 2012
Thank you Ray White Townsville City rentals for a stress free experience in renting out our investment property. Everything was left in the hands of the rental section and before we knew it, the property had been rented in what was a matter of days. As a property owner, having the right tenant selected and moved in as soon as possible is exactly the level of service one hopes for from their Real Estate. Although we live in Cairns, we were kept advised throughout the whole process and felt that renting out our property was given a high priority by Ray White Townsville City. We especially like that if we have any queries, we get to speak to the same rental property contact who knows our property intimately. Nothing was too much trouble for Ray White Townsville City.- Mark - November 2012
My partner and I have recently secured a rental property through Ray White Townsville City and we feel it is only appropriate that we express my gratitude in regards to the service of your receptionist and leasing consultant Bekki Anderson. She was nothing but helpful, prompt and professional. She explained everything clearly and made sure we had all aspects of the application filled out properly. In the past we find some real estates are unhelpful and unconcerned whereas Bekki was very helpful and quickly returned all our calls and emails!
Thank you again and please pass on our thanks.

You and the team have been excellent throughout our transition period into the rental property. You have gone above and beyond to make our move as smooth as possible and the personal touch of your service is something many other property management firms lack.
