Auction Success Stories This Penthouse apartment won the HIA Sunshine Coast/Wide Bay ‘Apartment of the Year’ in 2016. It’s striking living spaces flow out directly to large terraces - creating the sensation of floating above it all. Our seller made the decision to put their home on the market to downsize to another apartment nearby. It was an emotional time during the campaign but the home was presented absolutely immaculately week after week. Our buyers were up on the Sunshine Coast from Canberra looking at properties. They were looking at waterfront houses, then we suggested they look at this house size apartment as they wanted something low maintenance. They viewed the property on the Thursday, fell in love with it and bought it under the hammer on Sunday at our Auction Event. Inspections: Offers:

The story behind how this home was originally established is quite unique - the owners were residing in their shed and designed this tranquil home themselves. The shed is still able to be lived in as it has a functional bathroom, bedroom and living space. On the day of our first open home we greeted five groups of buyers and received an offer. As we were getting closer to auction day - our buyers were getting ready, some submitting prior offers and four groups returning for their second inspections. Auction day was thrilling and we had a fantastic turn out. All of our bidders arrived right on time along with their family and friends and the property sold under the hammer for $530,000.

The auction was especially exciting for the buyers with one party on the phone

while out of town for work. Buying their first home in Queensland and with family already located just around the corner, this property was the perfect fit. Our happy sellers are looking forward to returning to the UK to be closer to family. Inspections:  Offers:  Sale Price:

Community Corner We’ve got your back and we set the pace. The 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon is one of the most loved running festivals in Australia. Since its inception the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon has raised over $1.5 million for charity and community groups. Blue skies, low humidity and mild temperatures combined with a flat course always enable fast times in the Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km, 5km and the 2km. With a distance to suit every ability and age group, this community focused, world class athletic event caters to all those wanting to take part, including families and those with both physical and intellectual disabilities. It is our absolute pleasure to be sponsors of the 500+ Ray White Volunteers and the Ray White Pacers. A big thank you to all of them for giving up their weekend for another year of selfless service and assisting runners both on and off the course. Our staff who took part in the event raised $810 for our chosen charity, Bloomhill Cancer Care. SAVE THE DATE FOR 2019 - SUNDAY 4TH AUGUST!

Fighting for our Farmers. Yeehaw! Check out our team of cowboys and cowgirls at Ray White Mooloolaba and Ray White Kawana who were ‘Fighting for our Farmers’ and raised much needed funds to ‘Buy a Bale’. They exceeded their target of $1000 and raised $1610, thanks to their generosity and other locals who kindly supported the cause.
