First Time Home Buyer
Angie & Rob are a young couple who wanted to buy their first home. They engaged us just before Christmas and had very fixed ideas as to the suburbs they wanted to live in suburbs on the Sunshine Coast. We started sourcing properties in their suburbs of interest and then chatting with a real estate agent we know well, we found what was dubbed “Secret Santa”. It was an original 1972 brick veneer and tiled 2 story home on a good size block with views to the Minyama Marina. It was not in a suburb they thought they could afford but with strong negotiation we secured it for them for $675,000 being $75,000 below the original asking price within 12 days of engagement! They have now renovated the lower floor and have a very successful Airbnb running and about to start the upstairs renovation for themselves. The median price of property in this area is $977,680 so they bought themselves a cracker of a deal!
“Hiring Sue and Simon was the best decision my partner and I made about buying a house on the coast. We were hesitant in hiring a buyer’s agent, but we are SOOO glad we did. They worked tirelessly for weeks to find and show us houses that fit our needs. They showed us an array of options, leading us to purchase a house we never would have looked at if it weren’t for them and we couldn’t be happier about it. They more than made up the cost of their fees with knowledge of real estate and investing, familiarity with the area, renovation ideas and advice, and negotiating tactics to get us a far better deal than we ever could ourselves.
Sue and Simon are an incredible power duo that you won’t find anywhere else! With such a huge, important purchase, it is invaluable to have the right expertise and support to help you through the process”

Megyn approached us originally to source a commercial building or land suitable for commercial use. She had a property that needed to be sold in Brisbane before she could purchase so she signed up for our Vendor Advocate service which is 100% Free to sellers. Megyn wanted to retain as much profit as possible from the sale so we assisted in getting her one of the best Auctioneers in Brisbane and we worked on the Auction Campaign with her. The property got sold post Auction and the buying brief changed considerably after looking at potential commercial properties and land. The new brief was to find a property that would have a residential rental income and the possibility to use part of the property as an office. We sourced a beautiful original and part renovated Queenslander in Glass House Mountains. It fitted the bill and we negotiated the sale buying it for $465,000 being $25,000 below market value. Megyn decided to further renovate the lower level with 2 bedrooms, lounge and a new kitchen meaning it was a completely separate unit. The rental income for the upper level is currently $390pw and the ground floor unit $320pw grossing $710pw as against her Brisbane property grossing $500pw so a huge Win! Win! for her and she still has half of the ground floor to renovate if she wishes. Things always change, and in this case very much better use of her investment money.
“Sue and Simon worked with me to sell an investment property and buy another. When the property didn’t sell at Auction, their advice and support was invaluable and it ended up selling for more than expected after auction. They found a number of properties which met my brief and fast-tracked the purchase of the ideal property. Simon designed a small renovation which has increased the property’s value and made best use of the space.
Thank you Sue and Simon, your integrity, skills, experience and industry knowledge are outstanding and I’m very happy with the results.”

Richard, an Aussie expat, originally contacted us from Hong Kong after finding our website through google. He was unsure where he wanted to purchase other than Queensland coast! The brief was very complex, he had no real knowledge of locations, so trusted us completely using our knowledge and contacts to arrange a very detailed itinerary. His partner arrived in Australia specifically to look at property we had sourced which meant travelling for several days viewing potential properties in Stradbroke Island, flying up to the Whitsundays and then Noosa. Prior to that we also arranged viewings in Margaret River, WA. After shortlisting properties with his partner, Richard arrived in Australia and immediately flew up to the Whitsundays and then returned to meet us in Noosa with about 36 hours before they both flew out. Ironically, the property in Noosa was the very first property we viewed but it had become off-market. After chatting with the Real Estate Agent, we arranged a viewing and Richard bought it! We also arranged the Building & Pest Inspection and assisted in engaging a Conveyancer familiar with our overseas clients’ needs.
We negotiated not only the original house with 5 acres that was previously on the market but also a further 5 acres having Noosa River access……Total savings amounted to a staggering $525,000.
“Greetings from HK., Firstly may I say a big ‘thank you’ for your wonderful assistance and first class communication and assistance.

“I was stressing about putting our family home on the market, then I found out about Scott Properties Group Vendor Advocacy Service. Having totally independent, unbiased advice was gold for me.
Sue Scott calmly put everything into perspective and helped guide me through the process and challenges to allow us to sell our large home and downsize. I highly recommend Scott Properties Group as both Vendor Advocates and Buyers agents. Sue and Simon’s huge depth of knowledge in real estate and property design is 5 STAR. They provide a confidential service and no BS advice which is invaluable when there’s so much at stake.”
