2019 marks 50 years of local real estate in the seaside suburb of Coolum Beach

Be it beachside beauty or lavish lifestyler, helping people live their dream by finding them the right property all began for Coolum Beach Real Estate back in the late 1960’s when the then State Opposition Leader Mr Eric Lloyd started selling real estate in the small seaside village of Coolum Beach. Fast forward to 2019 and Coolum Beach Real Estate is proud to be celebrating 50 years of serving the local real estate market.

Building on its half a century of success, the business has gone from strength to strength in recent years and this year celebrates four consecutive years as the “RateMyAgent” Agency of the Year for Coolum Beach for their outstanding service and genuine commitment to their clients. Proud business owner Cara de Ryk says, “To win once was an achievement but to be recognised four years in a row is outstanding!  As a boutique agency we are out there competing with the larger agencies and franchises and our success places our sales team in the top 100 of agencies across Australia”.

And she has good reason to be proud. The “RateMyAgent” awards are the largest independent real estate awards in Australia and most notably recognise those agents and agencies that have ranked the highest based on genuine customer reviews and feedback – providing the most altruistic results possible in what is undoubtedly a competitive business market. The high praise for “What makes these awards so special is that they are based on vendor feedback and are recognition for the extra effort it takes to get a great result for our vendors.” Sales Manager Steve Lane points out, adding “To win the agency award four times running is a clear sign of our ability as a team of like-minded agents to consistently achieve outstanding results”.

The remarkable history of the business has helped it to evolve into the award-winning agency that it is today, and to cement its place as a trusted fixture positioned pride of place on Coolum’s iconic beachfront esplanade. Since January 2015 under new ownership that propelled the business into the future with gusto, embracing the latest technology along the way including running the business on a cloud based platform thus gaining a large following across social media platforms. Coupled with a fresh rebrand in bright colours to complement its beachside location, the business now has a modern look yet still retains good old fashioned values with an emphasis on service, quality and being ‘real’. And as they say the proof is in the pudding.

The “RateMyAgent” awards achievements are a testament to the hard work and dedication of the whole Coolum Beach Real Estate team put in to making the business a success. Not one to shy away from a challenge, Cara insists the team will continue to strive to provide the best service possible and knows the strong history of the business will help drive them to even greater efforts – “At the heart of our success is something that really hasn’t changed – a passion for our local area, genuine market knowledge and a real commitment to client and customer Service.”
