We are writing to express our gratitude for the fantastic effects of Kathy de Jong in assisting us with the sale of our unit and also with the purchase of our new property.


We cannot thank Kathy enough for everything she has done to assist us, nor can we sing her praises loud enough as time after time Kathy has shown us what an exceptional real estate agent she is. When we decided to sell our property we sought the advice of a number of agents from different real estate firms. Included in these were some of the newer fixed commission fee real estates. We looked at a number of options available to us before making our decision. We are so pleased we chose Kathy, we believe by choosing the best agent that approached us, rather than the cheapest fee, we have sold our property in an exceptionally quick time frame and for a great price.


When we met Kathy we were very impressed by her professional manner, Kathy was friendly and gave us great confidence that she would bring us the result we were looking for in the sale of our property. Every step of the way Kathy has always maintained a professional and friendly approach and has given us complete peace of mind that our property would be well marketed and cared for. Within a number of days Kathy brought us multiple offers for our unit and we were able to sign a contract for a record price for this complex.


By coincidence, the property we have since purchased was also through Kathy and once again her professional and friendly manner have made this a smooth transaction. Kathy has even helped us arrange the co-ordinating between moving out and moving in, which we imagine is not a normal requirement of a real estate agent.


She has assisted us at every point and has always been extremely helpful. We would strongly recommend Kathy to anyone looking to sell their property. And we will definitely be speaking to Kathy if we decide to sell again in the future. Please pass on our sincere thanks to Kathy for all her assistance and our best wishes for the future.

We couldn't be happier!

We couldn't be happier! Emily and the WRE Team demonstrated the experience and professionalism we needed, in both her dealings with us & sourcing a quality internationally based tenant. Emily rates as one of the best of the best!

After transfers to & from Sydney, we have leased our family home & investment properties through 6 different agencies for 10+ years over a 25 year period. We needed to find a reliable agent in the Sth West to manage our newly built home on the Brisbane River. We decided on Emily Williams at Williams RE Indooroopilly. We couldn’t be happier! Emily and the WRE Team demonstrated the experience and professionalism we needed, in both her dealings with us & sourcing a quality internationally based tenant. Emily rates as one of the best of the best!  Thank you Emily!

Friendly and professional service

Thank you for all the time and effort you put in to sell our home. We were very happy with your friendly and professional service and if it wasn’t for your negotiation skills we certainly wouldn’t have achieved the price we did. With appreciation and best wishes.

Dedicated point of contact

The staff at Williams have been providing support to me as a landlord for over five years. I can't recommend them highly enough. I've had one dedicated point of contact the whole time (the marvelous Emily Williams) and have always felt there was good and open communication between us.

The staff at Williams have been providing support to me as a landlord for over five years.  I can’t recommend them highly enough.  I’ve had one dedicated point of contact the whole time (the marvelous Emily Williams) and have always felt there was good and open communication between us.  When I first bought my rental property I did consider managing it myself – but I am so very glad I decided to engage Williams’ services.  I recently sold my property and was pleased to recommend Williams’ property management to the new owner.  Williams’ assistance was also invaluable during the sales process through providing all the relevant documentation relating to the tenancies – something I was pleased not to have on my plate at the time.  I wholeheartedly recommend Williams.

Emily thank you so much for all your hard work as our rental agent over the past couple of years. We’re very happy with the way the rental went and appreciate everything you’ve done for us along the way. It’s strange to think we won’t necessarily be in touch after this – but hopefully our paths will cross again at some point. In the meantime, many thanks again, and best wishes.

Very impressed by friendly and prompt service

I just wanted to say thank you for taking care of our property while we are away. You found us good tenants in 2 weeks, just before we left Brisbane, and looked after the garden before the tenants moved in, making things easier for us. We are impressed with your friendly and prompt service and are very happy to recommend you to any potential landlord.

Your approach to clients are always pleasant and beyond reproach. You have also shown that you are caring and patient and would try your best to carry out what has to be done well. [...]

Dear Emily, Jan and I wish to thank you for the wonderful job you have done in looking after our interests regarding the rental of our property at Indooroopilly. At all times you have been most helpful and have answered our queries efficiently and promptly. You have worked tirelessly in obtaining quotes and checking to see that the jobs required to be done on the property are carried out to our satisfaction. We have had dealings with property managers in Queensland for the past 15 years. We must say that you are the most professional rental manager that we have come across. Your approach to clients are always pleasant and beyond reproach. You have also shown that you are caring and patient and would try your best to carry out what has to be done well. You have assisted us in the selection of good tenants and the accounts that we received are relevant and up-to-date. We wish you to know that we appreciate your assistance greatly.

Effective marketing, efficiency and reliable

They seamlessly provide highly effective marketing for rental properties, undertake regular inspection reports, give a quick response to maintenance issues utilising good tradesmen, and send excellent end of year financial reports. [...]

I own a couple of rental properties and have experienced working with two difference rental agencies. Ray White Indooroopilly, and Emily Williams and her team in particular, have far outstripped any other agency I have worked with in terms of efficiency and reliability. They seamlessly provide highly effective marketing for rental properties, undertake regular inspection reports, give a quick response to maintenance issues utilising good tradesmen, and send excellent end of year financial reports. If new items are required for a property (e.g. dishwasher) they go to considerable lengths to source and provide details of the best value for an item currently available. They ensure all bills related to the properties (e.g. rates etc) are paid in a timely manner. The team at Ray White Indooroopilly take the stress out of owning rental properties making it an enjoyable and profitable experience. Thank you Ray White Indooroopilly. S. Gunn


Stephanie Gunn- Indooroopilly

Thank you very much

Thank you for your efforts. Sharolyn and I knew when we inspected the property that we would need to drop a fair few dollars onto it to bring it up to scratch or move it when a reasonable offer came in. [...]

Sorry I have been so slack in not getting back to you to THANK YOU for the sale of our property. I am aware that if your commission had been broken down to an hourly rate for all the time you pout in to moving our property that you would probably have got less per hour than those poor souls working for Nike in the sweat shops in the Philippines. Thank you for your efforts. Sharolyn and I knew when we inspected the property that we would need to drop a fair few dollars onto it to bring it up to scratch or move it when a reasonable offer came in. I hope the new owners have the time and energy to provide the property some love and care which it so desperately needs

Diligence, enthusiasm and plain hard work

Adam is a gentleman. One cannot fault his diligence, enthusiasm and plain hard work in the face of a difficult market. His professional guidance and communication skills, both with us and more particularly with the buyer in need of coaxing, were invaluable.

I would happily recommend Adam Bates. He is genuine, professional & does an excellent job. We had 2 small children during the sale of our property and Adam understood the demands placed on a family during the open house process. He went out of his way to help and make the process a smooth one including raking the backyard after a significant storm for an open house the next morning. His friendly nature and commitment to service are his best assets I believe.


Tina Kent

Excellent marketing and persuasion skills

We can confidently say that, had we gone to a different agent we would still be struggling to sell our property at the desired price. As we were overseas it was not easy to organize the property prepped up for inspections. We sincerely want to thank you Adam for going out of the way to ensure that property was always presented well. [...]

Dear Sandy & Adam, Thank you very much for successfully marketing and selling our property. Generally properties either sell at the desired price if the market is vibrant or the price is substantially reduced to meet the market during challenging times. We were selling our property (1 Kew Street, Indooroopilly) in challenging times. However because of your excellent marketing and persuasion skills, you were able to sell our property where both the buyers and sellers were equally satisfied. We can confidently say that, had we gone to a different agent we would still be struggling to sell our property at the desired price. As we were overseas it was not easy to organize the property prepped up for inspections. We sincerely want to thank you Adam for going out of the way to ensure that property was always presented well. Your commitment towards your client was exemplary. Your continuous communication with us during the sale process alleviated all our concerns. And again demonstrated your commitment towards a successful sale. We would have no hesitation to strongly recommend you to others who may be interested in availing the services of a competent and sincere real estate agent. Thank you once again. Sincerely Yours Sridevi and Prakash Naidu 63 Neulans Road, Indooroopilly

Exceptional human being, Adam

I met a high quality person of sound integrity, morally incorrupt and trustworthy. I found him to act far and beyond the scope of his profession. I hold Mr Adam Bates in high esteem both professionally and personally. [...]

Our family have always engaged Ray White Real Estate when it came to buying or selling property. Recently I had the responsibility of putting my 90 year old mothers house up for sale. I contacted a Mr Adam Bates of Ray White Indooroopilly. Within a 12 months period, Mr Adam Bates and myself had contact through telephone conversations and written correspondence. I finally met Adam a few days before settlement took place. I met a high quality person of sound integrity, morally incorrupt and trustworthy. I found him to act far and beyond the scope of his profession. I hold Mr Adam Bates in high esteem both professionally and personally. His wonderful manner will linger. An exceptional human being. I am truly honoured to have met Adam. He touched my life in so many ways and made a lasting impression. A portrait of goodness and spiritual reconciliation.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lisa for her assistance in selling my home in Taringa. I met Lisa at an open house and instantly knew she was the Realtor I had been looking for to sell my property….patient, not pushy and passionate. In what was an extremely difficult market with few buyers, her enthusiasm and professionalism was fantastic. I do not think I would have gained an acceptable sale if it had not been for her drive and perseverance. I enjoyed her regular updates and the honest feedback she gave on the progress of what was happening.


Brendon Fielding

Extremely Personable

Lisa did a great job in securing a positive outcome for my property sale. She was extremely personable whilst also being very driven in attaining my goals as a seller. I would definitely recommend working with Lisa to anyone.
