Testimonials - What people are saying about us

Word of mouth is our biggest form of advertising.  Here is what people are saying about us.

"very astute and professional agent" - Andy Sharma

"lovely to work with :)"

 "What a Professional!" - Andy Sharma

"Andy has always conducted himself in a very professional manner. He is caring of the Vendor's wishes, always giving honest feedback and always giving realistic appraisals. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy to anyone wanting to sell their property."

 "Andy was an awesome agent to work with, he was very accomodating in every aspect," - Andy Sharm

"Andy was awesome, nothing was a drama, he went out of his way to make sure I was happy with my purchase & was only a phone call away if I needed anything. I would happily recommend him to anyone buying or selling. Very enjoyable to work with."

 "Fantastic Agent - knows his job" - Warren Nonmus

"Warren was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. He put in lots of long hours and was able to find a buyer very quickly. I highly recommend."

 "Great Agent" - Warren Nonmus

"I was very impressed initially that Warren was happy to personally able to take me to a number of properties within my chosen price bracket. All of the properties were suitable for my needs. I had been looking for a suitable place since retiring and moving to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in Dec 2016. No other Real Estate agent, in the area, had offered to take me to see the properties, I was just given glossies and sent on my way. The process proceeded smoothly from my side and was well explained by Warren, unfortunately, the seller complicated matters both before and after settlement. Warren went out of his way to alleviate the problems even though the seller was being difficult (to say the least!!). So from my perspective, Warren provided me with excellent service."

 "Lovely Andy" - Andy Sharma

"A lovely agent who was a pleasure to deal with."

Just to let you know that we met this very knowledgeable and entertaining gentleman called Warren Nonmus while viewing an open house. He is a Licensed Sales Consultant with Carolans First National Real Estate Nambour.

He has such an “old world” charm, with manners to match. Not your average sales person.

He told us all we needed to know on this first visit, regarding the property. In fact we signed a contract at that viewing. The contract was accepted and we now live in this beautiful home on a hill with wonderful views.

There are always small things one needs to know when moving into a new home, and Warren addressed all our needs quickly and professionally.

We are so pleased we met Warren.

If you have a property to sell or need to buy, Warren is your man.

We thank you Warren for being you.

Kind Regards, Ray and Pamela


"Warren was a great agent" - Warren Nonmus

"A huge thank you for your help with providing me with a market appraisal on my property in Wilkesdale.

Even though I explained that I would not be listing the property for sale, Warren was very professional and thorough in providing me with the details I required.

Not every agent is this obliging, when there is nothing in for them except my sincere thanks.

Best of luck to you"

Hi Peter I have been meaning to contact you for a while now to let you know how much I value the services provided by Kally. She has been the property manager at our house in Yandina for some time now, and despite many ongoing, often complicated issues, she provides a level of customer service which is consistently outstanding. This is very comforting, being located here in Melbourne, as I feel she is the 'eyes and ears' for my husband and I when we can not be in the vicinity. Anyway, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how valuable I think she is, and I hope she remains our property manager for a long time to come. Kind regards Jane 



Dear Andy, Thank you very much for all the time and effort you put into the sale of our property, also for keeping us up to date with everything. We really appreciate it, especially your great sense of humor! Kind Regards Pat and Ray Rogers "Excellent service! Would happily work with Carolans First National again". - David Dickens and Tracy Metelerkamp



Dear Peter, We found Vanessa Brunton an excellent salesperson by achieving a better than expected outcome with this sale. Also by doing everything possible to make sure both parties were properly taken care of. Thank You! Ian and Kathy Zande To the wonderful Staff at Carolans First National, My sincere thanks to Carolan's for 16 years of top service in looking after my investment property. Frank Castle



Hi Gail & Kally, Just a quick email to give you guys some positive feedback. I've been extremely impressed with Carolans First National. From the start of the lease, you have made it simple and easy, your team has been has been prompt with communicating between myself and the tenants, plus payments and statements come through like clockwork. Thank you so much for your continued help with managing our rental. I would highly recommend Carolans First National to anyone. Kind Regards, Daria Cooper



Hi Peter, I'm sure you would have received my phone message early last week expressing our thanks to you for your help selling 6 Tamper St. Receiving your reassuring phone calls and updates helped alleviate the stress! This email is a belated one to also let you know our appreciation of Kathy's involvement. She was such great support and the communication was excellent throughout. I know she bent over backwards to help as much as possible. Thank you all for managing this property for us for the past 9 years and finally selling it! Regards, Wendy and Chris Annable



Dear Carolans First National, “I have found Vanessa to be honest, trustworthy and on time. She did a wonderful job & would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell”. David Smith, Palmwoods.



Dear Carolans First National Real Estate, My husband Mark and myself have been looking for our perfect property on and off for over 7 years. We were after a property with many requirements and expectations but always ended up so frustrated, and tired of other real estate agencies showing us properties that did not suit our needs and requirements. We thought we'd give it another go and turned to Vanessa Brunton from Carolans First National in Nambour. We gave Vanessa a very long description of what we were looking for, where we wanted to buy and what we didn't want. Vanessa really listened and payed a lot of attention to what we were after and worked very hard we believe above and beyond what any other real estate had done for us in the past and within a very short period of time found us our perfect property with everything we asked for and the price we were after. We would highly recommend Vanessa Brunton from Carolans First National Real Estate to others to help them find their dream home. We have actually already been recommending people we know to go and see Vanessa to help them find their dream home....cheers Bernadette and Mark Kelly



Dear Peter, I'm taking the time to write to you this afternoon about one of your sales staff. My wife Jody and I were recently looking for a property to purchase in the Mapleton area and were lucky enough to meet with Vanessa. I say lucky because throughout the trials and tribulations (we are not able to purchase at this time unfortunately) we could not have asked for anyone to help us more than Vanessa has. Jody and I have purchased and rented properties on both the East and West Coasts of Australia and have never been assisted as professionally, helpfully and in such a friendly manner as we have with Vanessa. I hope you recognize what a wonderful ambassador you have in Vanessa and the credit that she does not only herself, but your business and Real Estate as an industry. We would have no hesitation in recommending Vanessa to any family member or friend who was looking to purchase a property. Jody and I will certainly come back to Vanessa when the time is right for us to purchase. Once again, I cannot commend Vanessa highly enough to you. Regards, Neil Stockton (for and on behalf of Neil and Jody Stockton).



Dear Carolans First National Real Estate I found staff extremely helpful, friendly yet professional and approachable. I couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Sangyay I Should of used Carolans First National years ago, silly us, but will tell people about your company and to use Vanessa. She is an asset to your company. Thank You. Mr and Mrs Lanham



Dear Carolans First National, We just thought we'd write this letter to thank you for selling our home at 8 Reilly Road, Nambour. Carolans First National was great to do business with, they were very helpful, friendly and kept us up to date days and nights. They gave us 110%, they even pruned our roses! So we thank you very much. It was great to do business with Carolans First National Nambour and a big thank you to all involved. Sincerely Garry and Tracie



To all the Staff at Carolans First National, Thank you so much for your fantastic work in relation to selling my house. Not only did you sell it quickly but you made me feel comfortable and informed with all my decisions. I am very pleased to have selected you to be the Sole Agent. Ms M Cunningham



Carolans First National Real Estate, We appreciated how many times you kept us informed as to what was transpiring, your advice on market trends, your integrity & honest approach to everything. We are very happy with the final result and have no hesitation in recommending you to any future Vendors or Purchasers. Our only regret is that we are buying in another state and we will not be able to use your services when purchasing our new property. Mr P Ford & Ms V Spriggs
