Buyers Agent Reviews

BENOWA

A big thank you to Tony and his team. They helped us to secure our waterfront home. They are very professional and understanding of the challenges of purchasing a new property. I would definitely seek his service again in the future if I need it. 👍

HELENSVALE

A big thank you to the Simply GC team, who have helped secure our dream home significantly under the asking price and within our budget.

From the first meeting, Tony and Olivia made us feel at ease and explained how the Simply GC team would help throughout the buying process. It was clear from the get-go that they really do put people first and property second.

As we are fairly new to the Gold Coast, the local knowledge that the team from Simply GC provided was invaluable. The ‘no bull' but professional style when it comes to property advice was also very welcomed.

A special thank you must go to Maria, who arranged multiple house inspections and patiently guided us with the pros and cons of the properties we inspected. She diligently took our calls and messages and provided her experience and expertise whenever we had property questions.  

And they will always have your best interests and property dreams in mind. We still can’t believe we secured our dream house for the price we did. 

They take all the stress out of dealing with agents, negotiations, paperwork, etc. More importantly, they are focused on securing you a property that matches all your criteria. Our new home ticks all our boxes! 

We definitely would recommend Simply GC to any buyers on the Gold Coast!

Tony and the team provide a seamless, hassle-free service. They tailor it to you and your needs and get you what you want. No guesswork, worry-free property advice. Exceptional value.

PALM BEACH

We just can honestly say that my husband David and I were blown away by Tony and his team from Simply GC.

Before we met Tony, we had placed a contract on a property which was found to be structurally unsound during building and pest inspection, and we then terminated the purchase.

After looking solidly at hundreds of homes for three months (and finally thinking that our days doing open homes and dealing with agents were over), we were so deflated. The next day while speaking with friends, Tony's services were recommended by two separate people, and we decided to set up a meeting so we could learn more.

3 months searching on our own and in just over a week of signing with Tony we had a contract on a beautiful home in the perfect area for us. It had only been on the market one day!

It was the best decision we could have made, and in just over a week since signing him, we had a contract on a beautiful home in the middle of a perfect area for us while still being close to the ocean. The home had only been on the market a day when we viewed it with Tony, who was by our side, educating us at every step of the way.

To watch him in action and have him in your corner during the sales negotiation was a brilliant insight into the workings of his mind and how to structure a negotiation strategy. He communicated with us at all times and kept us informed every step of the way (continually calming our jangled real estate nerves after our previous bad experience), and the deal was struck within a couple of hours.

I genuinely think his knowledge was able to get us the best price for a house in an area that is in high demand. We both have immense gratitude towards him and the Simply GC team for helping us finally purchase the home that we love and for doing so in such a professional manner.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - Tony and his team deserve all the success as they listen carefully and genuinely to the needs and wants of the customer. We couldn’t recommend this brilliant service more highly.

Without Tony and the team we would have had no chance securing our new home. Absolute professionalism and one hell of a nice guy, once again Gold Coast Property Advisors have come through with the goods for us, this being our second purchase with them. They take the stress out of buying any property. Well done Tony and the team!

Tony engaged in a three week negotiation on our behalf. This is where the team really shine. They are confident and strategic negotiators. 

Personalised care is the hallmark of Simply GC Property Advisors!

PARADISE POINT

Moving interstate and finding a new home is a daunting prospect. Without local knowledge, hours of internet searching can prove fruitless.
Fortunately, a family member suggested we retain buyers' agent Tony Coughran. Tony and his amazing team at Simply GC Property Advisors worked hard to find properties to suit our particular needs in our preferred areas.

Tony arranged inspections and guided us through the selection process. Having found our dream home, we relied totally on Tony's brilliant negotiating skills to secure the sale.

Even the paperwork was handled for us, making the whole business stress-free. Personalised care is the hallmark of Simply GC. We highly recommend their services to anyone looking to buy on the Gold Coast.

We knew we wanted to buy on the Gold Coast, so we were after professionals in that area. Tony and Eva have exceeded our expectations. They helped us buy our dream home, and every step of the way, guided us through the process, making it very seamless even though we were residing overseas at the time with a large time difference. Tony is a very clear communicator, and we really valued his commitment and demeanour. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy on the Gold Coast without hesitation. Knowledgeable, professional and personable.

MELBOURNE

My wife and I made the insane decision to purchase a Broadbeach apartment during the madness that is Covid19. Due to the travel restrictions, we were not able to travel interstate to view the apartment. We engaged the services of Tony Coughran to evaluate the apartment and as a buyers advocate to attend the auction.

Tony performed a great job for us and succeeded in obtaining our dream escape home. We can't thank him enough for his care and attention during this process. Hopefully, we will get up there soon to see our apartment and have a meet and greet with Tony and share a drink or two.

Gold Coast's most                   Buyers Agents

Gold Coast's most                  Buyers Agents

Tony and the Team were extremely helpful and professional. They took a situation that is normally a stressful and tense moment, where you feel that you may be taken advantage of or may 'be swimming against the current' and made it a simple exercise.

After all, the real estate agent selling the house is not your friend but is serving the owner's best interests, this way, we had a professional agent aiding us and our interests only, especially when the offer is made. And to be honest, in our case, the negotiating was actually fun, after a few weeks of searching and working together, Tony had the negotiating over in 3 hours, and we had the house! (and cheaper than we expected).

I would strongly recommend using the Simply GC team, buying can be a huge investment and using the right professional can save you a huge amount of heartache and stress.

Thanks Tony and Team!

NERANG

What can we say, Tony saved us a lot, so much it was unbelievable. Being first home buyers and a young Kiwi family of three, we needed help, and that's exactly what Tony provided for us, plus more. With his experience, knowledge & planning on our side leading up to the auction took a lot of stress off our shoulders.

When the auction day finally arrived, we met up with Tony before everything was to kick off. We decided we would go and wait at home as we didn't want to be disappointed with misfortune, and Tony attended the auction and bid on our behalf.

Tony was confident and full of motivation, assured us he would win and told us he would be back soon with the keys!

We will never forget that one phone call from Tony saying, “The keys to your new home are yours, we won, and tonight it's your shout”.

This is every first home buyer's dream come true!! A big thank you to Tony & the Buyers Agents team for helping us out with our first investment property! It has been one of, if not the happiest experiences in our lives.

Friendly and professional, Tony has been committed to getting me the best deal possible. And has wasted no time about it!

A week and a half out from Christmas, I said that I wanted to buy - before Christmas! Tony and his team wasted no time in researching and giving me a list of properties to choose from, which also included off-market properties. I asked a lot of questions, and Tony was generous with sharing his knowledge of the industry and years of experience as a valuer too.

He researched the ones I liked right then and there, and by the end of our second meeting, we were signing contracts. I will definitely call on Tony at Gold Coast Property Advisors again for my next property purchase.

R + D Lachlan

MERMAID WATERS

I decided to meet with Tony and see if it was worthwhile engaging him as a buyer's agent to cut down on wasted time looking at unsuitable properties. Shortly after, I engaged him. He was very happy to do most of the leg work, given his very wide experience in the real estate industry over many years. Not long after, he found a number of investment properties to look at and away we went.

I found him open and honest in his views of the properties we looked at. At no time did he pressure me to make a choice but was constantly looking and offering advice. In the end, we found what I was looking for, and he began negotiations. He constantly kept in touch during all aspects of the negotiations. The property was bought for substantially less than the seller was asking. Tony even organised a better deal with the conveyancing firm, and then he put me in touch with a reliable property management agent.

The fact that Tony knows so many people in the industry is a distinct advantage when negotiating for a property.

I met Tony after a real estate meeting and decided to take a serious look at buying an investment property. After looking around for a while, I realised that there were large differences in the price, quality and placement of the type of property I was looking to buy. I soon realised I needed a qualified property investment advisor who knew a lot more about the Gold Coast property market than I did if I was to get the right property at the right purchase price.

Thanks Tony for bidding on my behalf and securing my waterfront unit well within my budget. Having you by my side, I was cool, calm and collected. Watching you in action was well worth engaging your services. Thank you, Tony and The Team at Simply Gold Coast Buyers Agents!

CURRUMBIN WATERS

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank, Tony and the team at Gold Coast Buyers Agents for their expert knowledge, dedication and patience.

We had some ideas about what type of home we were looking for and in what type of surroundings but really needed some direction. Tony was quick to show us a range of homes in our budget, which fitted our criteria and were in areas that perfectly met our needs.

Without Gold Coast Buyers Agents we are confident we would have searched for our perfect home indefinitely. We can not thank them enough for all their hard work. They were always available and eager to offer their assistance and provide motivation when we were struggling to find some.

We know we have saved a fortune by engaging the services of Gold Coast Property Advisors and Buyers Agents and have no reservations in recommending this service to anyone wishing to save themselves time and money. Thanks again!

Thanks to Tony and his fantastic team, Sue and I have been able to purchase in the exact location and type of property that we were after.

Tony’s professionalism and skill in the negotiations resulted in a significantly lower price than what we had expected, I am sure that the short space of time that it took to find the right property for us was due to not only Tony’s complete knowledge of the industry but also the vast and varied array of contacts he has in the industry.

From Sue and I, thanks again to the team at Gold Coast Property Advisors. We look forward to working with you again.

NERANG

I cannot thank Tony and the team at Gold Coast Buyers Agents enough for their hard work and dedication in finding my dream house at a rock bottom price. As a first home buyer in my early 20s I found the process at the start a little daunting, as I didn’t know what to expect. However, I needed not worry as I was in very capable hands.

In the beginning my brief was short : “find me a quality home at a price I can afford.” With that Simply GC went to work and can I say that no stone was left unturned. They scoured the coast, suburb after suburb in the search and I believe the result speaks for itself. Not only did they save me a tonne of time by doing all the leg work and research for me but I now have a quality, modern house that I thought would only be possible after my second or third buy...but never my first!!!

Their professionalism and dedication is second to none and Tony always has all the facts so that he can answer even the most complicated questions on the spot. My friends are already asking how someone my age managed to buy such a quality house on the Gold Coast and my answer is always the same : “Tony at Gold Coast Buyers Agents” – He truly is the best in the biz!!!

Just a personal note to thank you for all you have done for us.

As well as making the whole experience stress free and not to mention finding the absolute right property for us, you helped Janet to relocate her business which was an awesome bonus.

Thanks for the tireless bargaining, research, dealing with the trades people which was over and above the call of duty and saving us dollars.

We would recommend you to our friends and buyers without hesitation. Thanks again!

Gold Coast Property Advisors were the perfect fit for me. They were affordable and efficient and I was very impressed with work they performed. Tony is a great negoitator and was always looking out for our best interests.

The Withey Family

NEW ZEALAND

On a recent trip from New Zealand to stay with my son in Burleigh Heads, we decided to assist my son in purchasing a property.

We had very limited time to help him look, and on recommendation from a very satisfied customer, I contacted Tony Coughran from Gold Coast Buyers Agents.

Within two days, Tony had a list of eight possible properties to look at. There was a good variety, which gave us a good idea of what was available in our price range.

We were also very pleased that one of these homes was suitable, and therefore we went ahead and purchased the property.

We found Tony to be professional and enthusiastic in his approach, and he was instrumental in the sale process happening. We found him extremely reliable and trustworthy, and we would highly recommend him to future customers.

MUDGEEREBA

Well, it's settlement day, and as you know, we have had some unusual delays due to the vendor's issues.

I wanted to say how happy I am that we decided to use your services. Your professional advice throughout the whole process has been invaluable. Ensuring that we secured the right house at the right price, negotiating on our behalf, driving us to numerous inspections, advising, and liaising when the vendors ran into issues with their bank. All this would have been a daunting exercise without your assistance.

This is my first time using a Buyers Agent, and I am certain it won't be the last. Once again, I appreciate and thank you and the team for all you have done, and I look forward to working with you in the future. 

You found us what we wanted in 2 days?!

LABRADOR

My wife and I have attempted to enter the real estate market numerous times over the past 2 years, only to be met with a lot of anguish with our inexperience and frustration of time wasted looking at property not suitable for our needs.

What attracted us to use the team at Gold Coast Buyers Agents was their qualified background, understanding of the real estate market, access to exclusive property sales, and ability to articulate exactly what we were looking for. They are not like ordinary real estate agents. They identified potential properties for us to inspect, and once we decided which one to buy, they used their professional negotiation skills to secure our first home.

We highly recommend Tony and Gold Coast Buyers Agents for your next property acquisition.

Anyone can buy a house, but not everyone can negotiate like Tony

Tony had got the sellers down lower than we had thought was possible, and even when we said yes, we're happy to accept that price. Tony went back for more and returned to us with a better price.

This action by Tony speaks volumes about his passion and commitment to his clients.

It should never be why should I use Gold Coast Property Advisors. It should always be; why shouldn't I. 

Thanks Tony... you are the best!

I would recommend Tony Coughran and the Team at Gold Coast Buyers Agents to any first-time buyer starting out in the property investment game.
 
Tony has the ability and proven experience to obtain excellent properties for investors at below-market prices.

2 years to find a property, and I think you guys had us fixed up in 2 weeks!! Thanks to all the team for your professional services that were just invaluable in helping us navigate the Gold Coast property market.

We never thought we would be able to buy in Paradise Waters for that price!

From Sue and I, thanks again to the team at Gold Coast Property Advisors, we look forward to working with you again.

Tony’s expert negotiation skills rewarded us with a beautiful river front home that would have been unachievable without him and his team.

Our experience with Gold Coast Property Advisors went above and beyond our expectations. Tony and his team were an absolute pleasure to deal with from the get go. They paid careful attention to our demanding wish list for the perfect home.
 
Recently moving from Melbourne to the Gold Coast and initially starting our own house hunting search, we quickly realised our knowledge of the Gold Coast property market was way off target. Feeling completely vulnerable and lost in this new landscape, we knew we needed unbiased professional advice and assistance from someone we could trust to help us make the right purchase for our future home investment.

Tony and his team were exactly what we were looking for. They are down to earth, honest, humble, reliable, friendly, hard working and extremely knowledgeable on all Gold Coast property market related matters.

The added bonus for us was Tony’s experience as a qualified property valuer. Tony’s expert negotiation skills rewarded us with a beautiful river front home that would have been unachievable without him and his team. It would be extremely likely that without the assistance of Gold Coast Property Advisors, we would have paid a premium for a home, bought second best or still be endlessly searching.

Tony was also able to show us a side to the Gold Coast that was unexpected to us as Melbournian’s. We got to experience the Gold Coast like a local and realised that there is so much more for us here than just warm weather and beautiful beaches. 

We would highly recommend Gold Coast Property Advisors to help purchase your perfect dream home on the Gold Coast
