"Really we can't speak highly enough for everything you have done for us since the first time we stepped through your door. I think we mentioned it then, but I will say it again, compared to all the real estates in Sandgate you were the friendliest, most professional and most helpful."
“I would like to express my gratitude for the assistance provided by the team at 2nd Avenue for the sale of my property in Shorncliffe. Dianne and the team kept me fully informed through the whole process. We had been trying for some time to sell our property through another local agent without success. After switching to 2nd Avenue Realty, the number of viewers in the property increased tenfold and we sold the property in ONE WEEK, for more than the original agent suggested. You place a significant amount of trust in agents to manage the sale of your property and 2nd Avenue Realty certainly earned that trust through their diligence in following up enquiries, local knowledge and the like”.
“Of our three property purchases you have helped make this the most stress free one of them by far. Thanks.”
“We had been looking for a house on and off for quite a while with no satisfaction! Our first phone call to 2nd Avenue gave us a house which we looked at and bought all within 3 days. The web site was great!”
“The 2nd Avenue Realty team continually demonstrated the professionalism of a large company whilst maintaining the service and personal touch of a family owned company. I would happily use them again and have already recommended them to possible clients.”
“We were constantly kept informed as to how the property was being received and what progress was made behind the scenes. Great help from all staff.”
“We have been associated with 2nd Ave for the last 15 years and we hope this will continue for the next 15!”
“We wish to thank the whole team at 2nd Avenue, but in particular Brendan who has gone above and beyond to assist us in finalising our recent purchase! Even mowed the lawn and replaced batteries in smoke alarms – NOW THAT’S SERVICE!"
“Wonderful that, as buyers, we were looked after just as well as I would hope to be as vendors.”
“Humane, easy and efficient. We were kept well informed throughout the whole process and the level of personal service was excellent. Many thanks.”
"Dianne Ray and the team at 2nd Avenue Realty ran a well planned and effective marketing program that resulted in an excellent sale contract for our Brighton property. Dianne is a good communicator who show great skill in developing a rapport with both sellers and buyers. We would have no hesitation in recommending Dianne and 2nd Avenue Realty."
“Thank you to all the staff at 2nd Avenue Realty, particularly Gai, Brendan and Fiona. You made selling my property easy! Your kindness is truly appreciated."
“We loved the personal touch of your business. We really appreciated the gift to move in with and the friendly, genuine care for us as it was our first house.”
"Dianne has, at all times, shown a professional approach to the various aspects of her occupation and has been a reliable and strong leader."
"When I had to sell my house in Brighton after I had already moved back to the UK, I didn’t know how I was going to manage the whole process long distance. There was no need to worry with Gai and Linda at 2nd Avenue Realty in charge. They surveyed the property and offered constructive advice on any necessary work needed prior to marketing the property, as well as organising to get the work done. Once the house was on the market I received frequent feedback both by email and phone and I felt very reassured that matters were in safe hands. From beginning to end, nothing was too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend 2nd Avenue Realty to anyone – the level of service and responsiveness was really impressive. Thanks Gai and Linda, and the rest of the team at 2nd Avenue Realty!"
"The commitment Dianne put into bringing prospective clients to our property was amazing. She followed through with feedback on every occasion and kept us informed."
“We were very impressed with the high level of efficiency and service, delivered in a professional and friendly way by the team at 2nd Avenue Realty."
"We have had ample previous experience in dealing with both commercial and residential real estate agents and we truly and confidently say that, Dianne's professionalism yet warm approach was like a breath of fresh air."
“Thank you 2nd Avenue Realty for ensuring the sale of our home went so smoothly, timely and professionally. This was due to your accurate appraisal, regular communication, simple and effective marketing campaign and under promising, over delivering throughout the entire sales process. We cannot thank you or recommend you highly enough.”
“The team were a great help and comfort every step of the way. They were responsive to our requests and queries. We’d definitely recommend them."
“We would have no hesitation in our recommendation of the 2nd Ave Realty family for future sales.”
“The staff at 2nd Avenue Realty helped me through the difficult time of selling my property with their warm and friendly service.”
“Thanks very much for all your assistance with searching for, buying and selling houses over the last year! You have been the most friendly, approachable and "REAL" Real Estate Agents that we have ever encountered! - (and we've bought and sold a few houses over the years!). You guys, Fiona, and the team are pretty special and always greet us like old friends - (I think that's your way with everyone), but it just really shows your true nature, especially in the extra things you do - eg. picking up mail, shutting gates (left open by husbands!), visiting at odd times as required and of course presents! So cheers to you and the success you are, and will continue to have, at 2nd Avenue Realty."
“I was very impressed with the professional and positive approach of the sales staff."
"Thank you all for everything you did for the sale of our house in Yundah Street. Your energy and professional approach to the sale were fantastic and made it a stress free time wherever possible. It was a great pleasure to do business with you and we wish you and your staff all the best."
“Thank you so much for making the purchase of our first home so easy and stress-free! We truly appreciate the effort that you put in to ensure that we were happy with each stage of the process!"
"We dealt with Brendan who was very personable, prompt in keeping us informed and very welcoming to prospective purchasers. Fiona was wonderful in keeping us on track with paperwork and a delight to deal with."
“Great, not pushy attitude! We were happy with the personal approach and willingness to help. We felt much more appreciated than in other agencies."
“Good old fashioned service – ticked all the boxes for my dealings with this company."
My family and I listed our properties with Dianne after they were on the market without any success for some time. I found Dianne's enthusiasm and integrity excellent. She was always available and nothing was too much trouble. We found her to be diligent and her professional approach to the successful sale of our property was outstanding. A real estate agent of her calibre was a real find for us.
“We really appreciated the professional no-nonsense approach we received. Gai’s guidance in preparing the house for sale was invaluable and her valuation for the bank prior to the sale was realistic (and almost spot on). Well done 2nd Ave Realty!”
“Fabulous! Great team, dedicated and professional. Far prefer just dealing with two sales people than an ever revolving office full of sales people.”
"During our time that we have had our property listed with Dianne we have become aware of her many positive attributes ...". "We have no hesitation in recommending Dianne to others who are looking for an agent who has their best interests at heart and yet able to conduct themselves in a very professional manner. It is a most rare attribute within the industry and yet it comes so naturally to Dianne."
“Thank you to everyone involved with our recent purchase. It has been a delight to deal with such a professional, helpful and happy team. You made the experience a seamless and stressless one!"
“I have no complaints whatsoever. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Great service! Thank you."

“Fantastic job – 2nd Avenue obtained a good price for my property in a difficult market.”
“Your sales service was very professional. We were especially happy with the excellent communication on developments (timely and relevant) and the way inspections were managed to allow us time to prepare. And, of course, in closing the sale for us in a time of changing markets.”
“Thanks for ALL your help, support and professionalism in our quest to sell our principle place of residence. You really made it happen and we couldn’t be happier.”
“Great service! Fast Sale! Good job! Will definitely come back. Thank you.”
“Thank you for all your hard work selling our property. You all made the process so easy and were so supportive in a difficult situation. The personal touch definitely makes a big difference.”

“We would really like to than you Brendan, Gai and Fiona for assisting us to return to Brisbane. You made purchasing our new home a breeze, especially with a new born and a two and a half year old! With a bit of renovating our home is finally ready and we are really enjoying it!"

“Open, honest and straight down the line between seller & buyer! Where else would we want to do business? Add efficiency and we now have it made.”
“Professional service always with a smile.”

“It is a pleasure dealing with professionals who live in the area they are marketing ... Bravo 2nd Avenue Realty.”
“Such friendly people, who sold our house in a short time. We would recommend them to any institution if they need good service and friendly attitude.”
“Thanks for all your hard work. You should do well. You are the only pros in the area.”
“The staff at 2nd Ave Realty were professional at all times and they were open and honest about current market conditions.

"Forget all the stereotypes of real estate agents, Dianne Ray negates all of them! She is above all honest, open and easy to talk to. She sold my home and I would recommend her very highly. She listens, is open to ideas, very friendly, conscientious and communicates with you on a very regular basis; you will always know what is happenbing with your property. I highly recommend you buy and sell with Dianne Ray."
"We have no hesitation in recommending the services of Dianne to any potential clients as we found her services exceptional and feel that when we finally move to Twin Waters we have already found a friend in the area."
