To whom it may concern,


Averil Kennedy from Burleigh Property Sales has managed our block of townhouses for the past 12 years.


The first task Averil did for us, was removing the dreadful tenants, the previous agent had put in place. She was then the driving force in renovating the interiors, organising painting, new carpets and curtains.  Being interstate owners this was extremely useful and to have found someone we had complete trust in, just confirmed our faith in her ability to manage our property. She accomplished this prior to going on maternity leave!


It is not often in life that you find someone you are prepared to give complete control of managing your property to and she has proven to be a huge asset in our lives and no doubt to Ray White as well. Over the years Averil has ensured that our property has been maintained to an exceptional standard. She has the most amazing capacity to overcome all situations tenants have placed before her. Her ability to always act on our behalf and her communication skills vouch for her positive character.


We have developed a great affection for Averil. Her willingness to accept responsibility for our property, her total self confidence and tremendous abilities in property management have made her an invaluable friend.


We have no doubts you will be exceptionally pleased with Averil Kennedy as your new property manager.


Kind regards,


Paul & Christie Taylor

Extensive knowledge of the market and warm, friendly nature

It was our pleasure and privilege to engage Averil Kennedy and the team at Burleigh Property Sales as property managers for our rental property. From the beginning Averil impressed us with her extensive knowledge of the market, rental stock and profile of prospective tenants. Within two weeks our property was rented. As the inevitable issues of unexpected property repairs arose Averil and her team always dealt with these in a timely and professional way that was agreeable to both the tenant and us. The quality of trades people she recommended was very high although their charges were always within the market range.


The process Burleigh Property Sales used for recording and transferring monies relating to our rental property was excellent. Rent was always paid on time and made available to us on the designated days. Other than Averil’s warm and friendly nature the other qualities we enjoyed were her commitment to protecting our property, keeping the tenant satisfied yet always ensuring they were within the required contractual agreements and providing comprehensive periodic reports of our asset. Averil was a dogged supporter for us on matters between our body corporate and the tenant. We especially appreciated her respect for our busy lives and her subsequent reluctance to contact us unless necessary.


We highly recommend Averil and her team knowing that she is the very best property manager on the Gold Coast. Any owner using Burleigh Property Sales to manage their property will be 100% satisfied.

Our home was in safe hands with Averil!

When we decided to rent out our home it was imperative that we used an agent who would look after it as if it was their own. Being the most reputable agent in the area our first choice was Burleigh Property Sales and as soon as we met with Averil we knew we had made the right decision. [...]

When we decided to rent out our home it was imperative that we used an agent who would look after it as if it was their own. Being the most reputable agent in the area our first choice was Burleigh Property Sales and as soon as we met with Averil we knew we had made the right decision.


First and foremost Averil and her team went through a thorough screening process to ensure that we had the most suitable tenants, from organising the open homes to presenting us with their shortlist of applicants the entire process was seamless. Throughout the time that the property was rented we were thrilled with their prompt action if there was anything that needed attending to at the property and the thorough reports that were sent through after each scheduled inspection.


We felt so confident that our home was in safe hands and couldn’t be more grateful to Averil and her team for their professionalism whilst we rented out our home!

Worked tirelessly for us, thoroughly recommend Costa

We were very fortunate to meet Costa when searching for a house to purchase. We were instantly impressed with his open honesty and genuine ability to listen to our needs. We were able to build a very professional relationship with Costa and found he was always willing to assist us in the often stressful process of relocating from a two bedroom unit to a large family home.


Costa worked tirelessly to sell our unit and was able to achieve a sale within three weeks of it going on the market.  He was able to take the stress out of the process which allowed us to search for the home we wanted.  I would thoroughly recommend Costa in any dealings with purchasing or selling real estate.  He has a very sound knowledge of the process and can be trusted to deliver the results required.  He takes the time to listen to your every need and you always feel confident that he will get the job done.


Flew up from Melbourne, bought a unit in the Gold Coast

Walking down James Street and around the corner into Connor Street was mine and Joan's first experience of real estate agencies in Burleigh Heads. It was there that we first met Costa Bousgas. Costa was a salesman with Burleigh Property Sales and quickly drew our attention to the many homes and units on sale in the surrounding district. [...]

Walking down James Street and around the corner into Connor Street was mine and Joan’s first experience of real estate agencies in Burleigh Heads.  We had flown up from Melbourne for a wedding and a family funeral, so we took the time out in between to explore the idea of living on the Gold Coast.  Gazing into the windows of Burleigh Property Sales seemed to be a pass time for the locals, so we too were attracted to the large display windows.


It was there that we first met Costa Bousgas.  Costa was a salesman with Burleigh Property Sales and quickly drew our attention to the many homes and units on sale in the surrounding district. What took our eye was a unit in Stephen Street, very close to the centre of town and a short walking distance to just about everything. Costa arranged an inspection and we quickly hit on the idea of living on the coast permanently.


Very happy with Joel's professional service

We engaged Joel Boniwell of Burleigh Property Sales, to sell our apartment in Burleigh Heads in November this year, and were very happy with the professional service he provided. We found him to be courteous, reliable and responsive, and his determined efforts to successfully sell the apartment were much appreciated.

Smooth and stress-free sales experience with Joel

Dear Sir or Madam:


It was with great trepidation that my sister and I put our family holiday unit of 35 years up for sale. We contracted Joel Boniwell of Burleigh Property Sales and couldn’t have been happier. Joel understood our emotional attachment to the unit and made us feel at ease in the way he handled the sale. Joel was a hard working, personable professional throughout the entire process. When the first buyer backed out after having placed offers on multiple properties, Joel was found another buyer within days. And when we wanted time to spend one last weekend at the unit, Joel was able to get a long term settlement. Joel made for a smooth and stress free sales experience. We would recommend Joel Boniwell of Burleigh Property Sales to anyone interested in buyer or selling property and cannot thank him enough for all he has done.


Sincerest Regards,


Averill Staron

Professionalism and caring approach

Our dealings with Joel have been of the highest quality. He has been very honesty, open, and understanding throughout the entire process. As 1st time buyers we had endless questions at all times of the day and night during the contract period and Joel was always available to answer these in a quick and professional manner. [...]

Our dealings with Joel have been of the highest quality.  He has been very honesty, open, and understanding throughout the entire process.  As 1st time buyers we had endless questions at all times of the day and night during the contract period and Joel was always available to answer these in a quick and professional manner.


During the course of the buying process we have encountered many so called professionals, however, they could all learn a lot from Joel.  His professionalism and caring approach was something many others have lacked and his service has been the highlight of all our dealings with this purchase.


The highest recommendation that I can offer is that without question or hesitation when the time comes for us to buy another property or sell this current property we would only want Joel to be our agent.  He is a fair and honest man and we cannot thank him enough for all he has done to make this process smooth and easy and we certainly look forward to not only our own future dealings with him, but in referring others to him when they need to buy or sell a property.  We know we were and they would be in know better hands.


Scott and Joel - a great team

We would like to express our sincere thank you for handling our recent sale. Finding a good agent is not easy and a great agent even harder, and a great team of agents harder again. [...]

We would like to express our sincere thank you for handling our recent sale. Finding a good agent is not easy and a great agent even harder, and a great team of agents harder again. Yourself and your son Joel fit into the latter category, a great team. Particularly Joel who was the one handling the sale negotiations. The sale wasnt easy, it had its moments, but you and Joel’s combined experience, I felt, made the difference.


Joel is an outstanding agent in that the manner in which he handles himself, knowing when to listen and for how long, and when to call for a decision, shows a maturity beyond his years and experience. His is also a very sincere person and calls the shots the way they are.  This is the reflection of a good mentor which is no doubt yourself, well done. Joel is an excellent asset to the business and yourself Scott.

Experienced property agent who knows the local market

Manfred will work hard to get a sale for you. He is very good with feedback and always keeps you fully informed. His background as a builder gives him added knowledge and credibility when dealing with potential purchasers. As a long term local as well as an experienced property agent he knows the local market extremely well. I would recommend Manfred and employ his professional services again myself.

Extremely professional and pleasant person

I listed for sale a rental unit with Stephen Smith in February, 2012 which I had tried to sell with another agent before.


Stephen was extremely professional in advising me on marketing strategies and on the achievable price.  He kept me up to date by weekly phone call on enquiries and comments received, and when an offer was submitted, he conducted negotiations on my behalf in a skilful and efficient manner.


I had found Stephen a very pleasand person to deal with, and feel grateful for his expert help to sell my property in a difficult market.

Honest agent and highly skilled negotiator

I am writing to recommend Stephen Smith to any prospective Vendor considering selling a property on the Gold Coast.  A couple of months ago our family decided to sell a three bedroom apartment on the Esplanade at Burleigh Heads.


This property had been owned by the family since the building was constructed in 1980.  We made contact with a couple of agents including Stephen.  We chose Stephen because he was the only agent who outlined a strategic plan that seemed to be tailored to the product we were selling.  Stephen presented a strategy of selling our property at Auction.  Given the weak state of the market in the Gold Coast we had our reservations about this strategy.  Stephen pointed out the fact the an Auction would put a definite time frame in place for a sale campaign.  The marketing campaign was very disciplined and cost efficient. We found Stephen to be honest and that he kept communicating with us about any serious parties and offers that had been made during the campaign.


In conclusion Stephen proved to be a highly skilled negotiator and achieved a sale price far in excess of what we expected to achieve.  I am happy for Stephen to pass on my contact details for anyone considering engaging Stephen to sell their property.


Was a great pleasure dealing with Stephen

It's been a great pleasure dealing with you over this sale, you are not only a true professional but a very nice person too. You were very caring and not too pushy and it was very much appreciated! [...]

It’s been a great pleasure dealing with you over this sale, you are not only a true professional but a very nice person too.  No doubt Jamie has been in touch to thank you himself, but I just wanted you to know from my point of view that you made the whole process that much easier, as it was a very stressful time for us having to move Joy back here, knowing how much she loved her home there and it was good to know you had her best interests at heart. You were very caring and not too pushy and it was very much appreciated!


Thanks again Stephen and hope we will be doing business with you again one day in the future.


Honest and upfront

After an unsuccessful and disappointing experience with another local agent we weren't sure whether to keep the house on the market, or to continue to rent it out. After chatting with Scott my mind was completely put at ease. [...]

After an unsuccessful and disappointing experience with another local agent we weren’t sure whether to keep the house on the market, or to continue to rent it out. After chatting with Scott my mind was completely put at ease. I admired and respected his upfront and honest opinions and completely trusted that we would get the best possible outcome with him as our new agent.


While the house was on the market Scott kept us fully informed of each viewing and potential buyer and within a couple of weeks of the house being on the market we received an offer we were extremely happy with!!


Couldn't be more thrilled!

Both Scott and Joel were faultless in their communication with us during this time, liaising with the buyer, organising building & pest inspections etc and they totally had everything under control - keeping everything from our end completely stress free! The house went unconditional even before the date we had originally set for an auction. We truly couldn't be more thrilled with the service and the result we received from Scott, Joel and the team at Burleigh Property Sales!
