Lee was very helpful, always there it guide us w/ all inquiries and dealing with completing documents, always update us on the progress of the property sale.

Within 4 months our two properties were sold with Lee’s professionalism, easy to communicate with , we are highly recommending Leading Realty to anyone wishes to sell property.

Thanks Lee for all your help with the recent sale of my property,

This was particularly helpful from interstate.

Without hesitation I would select you again should need an agent and would happily and confidently recommend you to others.

Wow --- where do I start.  After 20 yrs + of real estates asking us to sell  our three rental properties ( all good locations) .   We decided to put the feelers out.  Lee was the lucky one to get us ( but I know WE were the lucky ones to be recommended to use Lee) to sell our rentals properties for us.

He got us top top $$$$ 's for it.  We were happy to sit on it and he surprised us with the great price.

Lee and Justin did an amazing job of marketing and getting the right person to love the house and area as much as we did.

Lee works so close with you and keeps you updated on the smallest of things ( which is great as you know he has your best interest in working for you and taking away the stress and strain of different things). Makes selling so much easier and hassel free.

We would highly recommend  Lee Sutherland anyday of the week ( which we have already done) to sell our properties.

Lee is one of the rare honest - hard working agents ( person ) we have ever meet and dealt with.  You can ask him something and its never a silly question an he will always tell you what you want to know and IF he does not know the answer he will find out ASAP.

Lee is currently selling our 2 other properties ( under contract ) which another agent had for 2+ years in next to no time.

Keep up the great work Lee, don't change how you do your business and dealings with people it is outstanding the way it is.

Good luck with future and past clients, they will not be disappointed.

Thank you so much for all your help and sorry for some of the hurdles that you jumped effortlessly for us.

Rosemary and Kevin.

Many thanks Lee for selling my property so quickly within 2 weeks of listing. 

I would think that would be ‘record breaking’ for any real estate agent. 

I must admit that prior to meeting you I had decided to list with another agent, however I was doing my friend or favour as she spoke so highly of you. 

I am truly grateful that I listed with you.

I felt comfortable and confident with you at our first meeting. 

Throughout the sale process you have demonstrated attributes such as:

very good listening skills

courtesy & respect

professional and efficient work ethic

regular communication & feedback

Above all you were able to negotiate the best price for me. 

I am impressed with you on all levels and have already y recommended you. 

I will be in touch soon to sell another property

7 Braemar Road Buderim Qld 4556

I found Lee Sutherland and his team to be respectful, professional, courteous and efficient at every step of the way during the sale of my house.  I was impressed with Lee’s approach when I first met him and tentatively discussed my plan to sell my house.

 After our first meeting, I sought further advice from time to time, and Lee continued to give me helpful information on how to prepare and present the property for sale.  It took me quite some time to prepare the house and I received support throughout that process.  Lee’s advice enabled me to maximise the appeal of the house to prospective buyers.

 When I was ready to sell, Lee and his team launched a successful marketing campaign which attracted a lot of interest and enquiries from the public.  Weekly reports provided valuable feedback and were much appreciated.  Lee’s team handled my phone and email enquires promptly and were always considerate and helpful.

 The Open Home inspections were conducted in a professional and timely way, with minimum disruption.  I’d especially like to thank Karen, who negotiated a successful contract for the sale of the house after several weeks of the marketing campaign.

 I highly recommend Lee as a real estate agent, and would definitely use Lee’s services in the future if I sell again

 Kind Regards

Lee Sutherland sold our home in 28 days at a price which was spot on within the range he quoted us when he first inspected the property.

 Lee, and his partner Justin, were extremely professional and honest with a no-nonsense approach to marketing and selling our home. They worked with us all the way, even to the extent of advising us on the presentation of the property to maximise its sales appeal.

 They took care of all marketing of the property, associated paperwork and regulatory requirements taking all of the stress out of the sales process for us. During the Open home phase they kept us up to date on the number of people inspecting the property and any feedback received.

 We are very happy to recommend Lee and his team to anyone wanting to sell their home; we would use them again without hesitation.

3 Sylvan Drive Buderim Qld 4556

After being on the market for 5 month with another agent and no contract, we were very nervous about listing and committing with another agent.  A family friend recommended Lee, and after our initial meeting our fears were not found.

 The service and professionalism we received from Lee and his team was outstanding.  From the initial consult through to the negotiation process, I can’t fault their process or methods of selling our house.  I am pleased to say that after only 2 open homes we had an offer on the house that we were happy with and are now packing to move onto our next life chapter

 Thank you so much Lee, Justin and Sharmayne for your help and commitment to achieving an amazing and quick result for us.  I will without hesitation recommend your services to anyone who is looking to sell their property.

 Warmest Regards

My husband and I would like to say that we found RE/MAX Property Sales an excellent company to be associated with.

 Lee Sutherland was a good listener, and we felt that, he and his team were on our side and were going to put every effort into selling our home.

 He was honest and supportive and supplied heaps of useful suggestions for presenting our home at its best.

 They were a very professional company yet extremely approachable, enabling us to confidently ask their advise on any matter concerning the sale of our home.

 Lee was very helpful without being assertive and offered his professional advice when required.

 My husband, Len and I would not hesitate to recommend Lee and his team to be responsible for selling anyone’s home or property in the future. We found them to be a very reliable and dependable team.

 Regards,

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you as all we can say, can't thank you guys enough for your very professional, courteous and above all honest service.  After trying to sell our property twice before with Big talks with no success over the last 10 years, we decided to check out real estate companies 1st this time.  One stood out so we followed his dealings for nearly 2 years and decided it was now the right time and market time for our place.  So we contacted the legendary Lee Sutherland from REMAX, what a difference it makes talking and dealing with someone who is honest straight up.  When you have confidence in your agent it is very easy to trust their judgement and suggestions and to follow their lead.  Their diligence and passion was evident all the time from Saturday morning inspections to night time calling they we magnificent!  We got the price we wanted and were blown away by the service we received from the whole REMAX team.  I will definitely recommend whole heartily Lee and the team (thanks Justin) to anyone who needs a real professional and honest team to sell their property.

 Love you guys

51 Alfriston Drive Buderim

A thorough and well qualified agent
I engaged Lee to sell my parent's home in Buderim Queensland in early 2014. Of a number of agents I interviewed, Lee was the only one who responded to the temporary state of the house (poor, due to careless tenants) with respect. He could see beyond the initial poor impression. 

As I was selling the house from Sydney and visited only once to choose an agent, Lee was able to arrange a handyman to fix defects in the house and fencing, as well as cleaning up the garden. Minor cosmetic treatments were also carried out under my instructions. The advice Lee gave me regarding a spending limit for preparing the house for sale was very helpful. 

Lee also drove me around Buderim during my visit from Sydney to show me recently sold houses in a similar price bracket. 

I felt very comfortable with Lee. He was always a gentleman and never applied pressure. He is well qualified to do his job and his calm presentation is proof of his experience in the real estate industry.

"My warmest thanks go to Lee Sutherland for his wonderful support handling the recent successful marketing and sale of my home.  I am sure I am not alone in being utterly daunted and stressed by the whole business of making the decision to leave a long-established home, searching for a new abode, then packing and coping with strangers wandering through my place.  However, Lee's reassurance, guidance and professionalism gave me the confidence to keep going.  

 He was, at all times, respectful and careful of my wishes and concerns and I would warmly recommend his services to others.

 Thank you, Lee.  Your support made all the difference."

 Best wishes, Kathleen

12 Anzac Avenue Maroochydore

When I was given the task of looking after my brother’s estate, which involved the sale of his house, I did not have to think twice when choosing an agent to do this for me.

 My husband and I had engaged Lee Sutherland to sell a house previously and were very impressed with his professional approach. Always making us aware of what was happening along the way. The house was sold in the time frame we needed with good results.

This time the property had not been well cared for but Lee was unfazed by this, giving us good advice on how best to prepare for market. The property achieved results over and above expectations. We credit going to Lee for this, with his quiet persistence getting the job done at auction.

 I was extremely happy with the service provided particularly by Lee Sutherland. He is a credit to the agency and his profession, and I would have no hesitation recommending his services to my friends and acquaintances.

To Whom It May Concern,

 I sold my property first but had placed a deposit on a unit in a retirement resort. There was no direct contact with the realtor of the sale of our property in Brisbane and there was not comparisons to Lee’s handlings of my property.

 Lee came to me through a referral when I visited Halycon and they made the referral.

 I was confident in Lee’s handling of the sale and from the outset. The failure of the first contract was a disappointment but he always kept me in the loop. There was satisfaction in all aspects of communication and I thank Lee and his company.

 All calls, messages and correspondence were clear and very good. All inspections and showing of my property were kept and there were no problems at all. I was totally satisfied with all my associations with Lee and staff.

We engaged Lee Sutherland of REMAX Property Sale for the sale of our house at 27 Moorabinda Street, Buderim,

 He was faced with a task of selling a prestige property in a challenging market.  He took on the property without delay or hesitation.

 After extensive marketing of the property we had a contract after 3 weeks at a price we were happy with and the property was sold without any problem.

 We have no hesitation in recommending Lee Sutherland and his team when selling real estate on the Sunshine Coast and wish him well in his future endeavours.

Over the years we have bought and sold many Properties, commercial and private, meeting many Realestate Agents etc. Some put in the effort, some didn't.

With Charmaine and Lee from Remax from the word go their effort was

extremely professional designed to achieve us the maximum price from

 their photography to their open house to their promotion, it went with minimum

fuss minimum heartbreak ,yes indeed we highly recommend Charmaine and

Lee of Remax for a good result.

Selling my home with Lee Sutherland was stress free which is exactly what I needed. He started by believing in our home, not needing us to spend lots of money on it but just letting me know what to spend time or money on.

He also was the only agent to follow me up after a period of time where I needed to wait before being ready.

He built rapport with myself & was very positive in his approach the whole way. He was also willing to work with others if I chose that unlike others. He also kept me very informed and was happy to respond to all texts and calls.

His best work was done in connecting prospective buyers looking at another of his properties in Buderim with our property.

He stayed over the inspection time for the prospective buyers on that particular day and still made time to talk to me at the end.

When Lee rang to tell me about the offer made on the property I was thrilled as it was a good offer. He asked if I would like him to ask for closer to the asking price & I said yes and I trusted him. He soon returned the call and I screamed as he had quickly & from my side easily increased the offer by $4,300. I was amazed and kept telling him how easy, quick and stress free the whole thing had been. He of course stayed calm and kept the business as usual until it went unconditional.

Lee always responded by saying ‘It’s my job to make it easy & stress free for you’. We got a price well about what other agent in the Buderim area said we could get for it and I was very happy with the sales price & the quick & stress free process.

I will definitely be contacting Lee again if I want to sell or buy.

I would recommend Lee Sutherland to anyone marketing a home in Buderim. We were given no reason to doubt Lee Sutherland’s integrity, so we decided to proceed with his advice on the sale of our property.

9 Attenborough Close, Buderim

We recently sold our property in Attenborough Close in Buderim using Lee Sutherland from RE/MAX Property.

Lee and his team did an outstanding job in selling our property on the first open home with a contract at the full asking price as well as a back-up contract.

Lee is a very successful sales person and his knowledge of real estate is second to none. Throughout the whole sales process nothing was too much trouble for him or his team.

We have no problem in recommending Lee Sutherland and his team to sell your house and we will be using him again in the future if we buy or sell.

Thanks again Lee

11 Ballinger Court, Buderim

After having our house on the market for six months we didn’t think we would ever sell. We had engaged two different agents over this time without any success.

We needed a sale as we were committed to our next property and time was running out. Lee was referred to us at the end of November. We met with Lee and were very impressed by his professionalism, the data he laid before us pertaining to the property market and his open way of talking (no hidden agenda).

He had a very different approach to the other agents we had been dealing with. Lee gave us confidence that he would do his utmost to secure a sale.

Throughout the advertising campaign, Lee was in regular contact and provided feedback after all inspections.

Within three weeks our home was under contract.

We were very relieved and pleased with the result. We are now looking forward to moving into our new home in Bli Bli.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your assistance in the sale of my home at Burnside.

Upon introduction I felt an immediate feeling of trust, and felt comfortable in having you as my Real Estate Representative. Consulting you on price and market values, showed me you were in touch with the market and demand in my region.

Your professional manner in dealing with prospective clients and attentiveness to any of my queries throughout has been highly appreciated. You have a wonderful skill in negotiating a positive outcome!

Many Thanks Lee!

Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into finding the right buyer for our property.

We know it presented you with a big challenge but you worked hard for us from day one to achieve a positive outcome for us.

At times we were a bit stressed but thanks to your expertise and polite manner we got through it all successfully.

It has been a real pleasure dealing with you Lee and we highly recommend you.

Just keep on doing things the way you do, Lee its been a pleasure working towards the sale of our property with you.

Thank you once again.

A mutual friend introduced us to Lee and Remax. We are so glad!

Lee is professional, hardworking and innovative in his approach to selling real estate. Nothing is ever too much trouble!

We also found Lee to be caring and thoughtful.

To top it off our property sold in a short time!

We highly recommend him and his agency for a trouble free and happy sales experience.

Rick and Susie Zweck June 25, 2014

3 Stanley St, Palmwoods

I can highly recommend Lee Sutherland as a professional, reliable and trustworthy real estate agent.

After meeting with various other agents, Lee Sutherland stood out as a professional with exceptionable industry knowledge; hence his engagement.

During the marketing campaign, Lee and his personal assistant Justin actively promoted our house for sale and had several inspections.

Prospective purchasers were followed up and we were advised of their comments and feedback on a weekly basis.

The final negotiations on a sale price were swift and pressure free.

For these reasons, I would highly recommend Lee Sutherland as a preferred real estate agent.

Carl and Briohny Rutherfurd June 25, 2014

52 Blackall Range Rd, Woombye

When we made the decision to sell, we knew the current state of the real estate market made selling a very slow and tedious task. We knew basically what we wanted as a new residence but we were not going to allow ourselves the indulgence of looking, finding what we wanted and then climbing the walls waiting for our house to sell.

In hindsight, that was a mistake as you will see shortly.

We called in three different agents, all with fantastic reputations and offering great packages.

Lee Sutherland and his assistant Justin Christopher came along and presented their marketing package. The first two agents presented very fine proposals and left us feeling very warm and fuzzy about the potential sale, whereas Lee’s proposal contained very confronting facts and figures and left it up to us to determine a price.

His package was totally aimed at separating our house from the competition in the market place. The successful sale was not going to be left to chance. His package created well over a thousand hits in the time the house was on the market. You would think a thousand hits is not all that remarkable on the net, but bear this in mind – this was over the two week period that it took for the house to sell.

A 30 day contract doesn’t take long to pass and we had to find our new dream house urgently.

So beware, if you decide to choose the Lee Sutherland team, you might be seriously looking for a new house much earlier than you expected!

Graham & Marilyn Stephens June 25, 2014

12 Rock Fig Court, Palmwoods

When we decided to sell our house in Palmwoods and move to an over 50's Gated Community Lee Sutherland was recommended to us.

We arranged a meeting with Lee and were immediately impressed with his friendly, professional, positive attitude.  He had already researched our area and was able to tell us what houses had sold for and how long they had been on the market.  He also told us what we could realistically expect to achieve in a flat market. Lee had barely had time to put the "For Sale" sign up and he had sold our home.

We want to thank Lee for making the whole process so easy.  We would highly recommend Lee to anyone wishing to sell their home.  He is a Real Estate Agent with absolute integrity.

Ken Daniels and Lesley Hamilton June 25, 2014

22 Moss Day Place, Burnside

We recently had the pleasure of selling our house through Lee Sutherland from Remax.  What we thought was going to be an exhausting and stressful process ended up being the total opposite.

Initially we had four different Real Estate Agents around.  One told us we would get no more than $420.000 for the property, another told us to list it at no more than $410.000 and another kept pushing and pushing us to go to auction even after we insisted we could not afford to do so.

When Lee came he seemed to be the only one out of the 4 agents who really wanted to sell our house.  He was very helpful, knowledgeable and thorough.  Not only did Lee sell our house, he sold it in 'one day'.

It was listed on realestate.com on the Monday and Lee had a phone call on the Monday afternoon from some interested buyers. They came through the house on the Tuesday morning.  We had the house listed at $475.000, we had an offer on the table that afternoon for $468.000 .... SOLD.

We highly recommend Lee Sutherland to anybody looking at buying or selling a property.  He is honest, reliable and friendly.  And he knows his stuff.

We have since recommended Lee to a number of people.

It was a pleasure dealing with him.

Clare and Doug Wimberley June 25, 2014

275 Bradman Ave, Maroochydore

Just a few lines to say that during the recent sale of our house, we were extremely happy with the service provided by the agency chosen for this purpose, namely Re-Max Property Sales, with the agent being Lee Sutherland.  Lee Sutherland was chosen from the three that we had called to give us an appraisal, after being recommended by a friend who had successfully sold her property after enlisting the services of Lee and his team.

We found Lee to be a very professional sales person, always coming through with what he said he would do.  After only three weeks on the market, Lee found a buyer with settlement taking place a month later at a price very satisfactory to all parties.  We would recommend Lee to anyone wanting a good real estate experience, whether buying or selling.

Tony and Beryl Giles June 25, 2014

22 Country Coolum Dr, Yandina Creek

Recently our property situated at Yandina Creek was sold pending our move to the central coast of NSW.

Our agent for the sale and promotion leading to the sale was Lee Sutherland of REMAX Property Sales.

Lee did an excellent job considering the current stage of the property market.

Lee gave us great assistance with the sale and guidance as to our purchase of our new home at an over 50’s recreational village in NSW - Lee made a number of phone calls to the owners of the village and explained the difficulties we were having in our sale due to the flat market. At this stage we were in danger of forfeiting our deposit.

I have no hesitation in recommending Lee to any person(s) considering selling or purchasing a property. He is very thorough and has a great attitude.

Geoff & Dari Jory June 25, 2014

82 Sam White Dr, Buderim

My wife and I put our home at 82 Sam White Drive Buderim on the market. We listed it with one of the larger agencies, but having sold five homes during our marriage we were familiar with the feeling of being abandoned by our agent. Despite putting money into advertising we had had virtually no interest and nine months had gone by.

On the advice of a friend we listed with Lee Sutherland. Lee never let a week go by without meeting with us to discuss sales and marketing strategies. All his marketing suggestions were backed up by market statistics, and experience.

Lee’s tenacity in following up inquiries was second to none and we were always kept informed. Lee of course sold our house and in a very hard market achieved a street record. Lee never stopped trying to achieve and on the evening he presented us with the contracts he had negotiated a price $5000.00 over what I had told him I would take.

Both Sonja and I would be happy to hear from anyone thinking of using Lee Sutherland as there agent, as there is only so much I can express in this testimonial

We would be happy to recommend Lee Sutherland to any Seller.

Steve Pescod & Sonja Carmen June 25, 2014

34 Yew Court, Buderim

I am giving this testimonial regarding Lee Sutherland unsolicited but feel I should make reference to a person in the Real Estate industry that is the most professional person I have ever dealt with.

Putting aside the fact that Lee sold our home the day it went on the market, the weeks leading up to our listing I found Lee’s professionalism outstanding.

I have bought and sold many homes in my lifetime and have taken the view that most people take in regard to Real estate agents.

To find one who is up front, honest, friendly, and helpful and above all tells it like it is, good and bad, I found refreshing.

If you are thinking of buying or selling, well, speak to whom you like, but don’t do anything until you have met Lee.

Chris & Liz Modlin June 25, 2014

13 Thougla Place, Buderim

We recently sold our Buderim home with Lee Sutherland, of REMAX. We wanted a quick sale, so Lee recommended the auction process.

He was realistic about the price we would achieve, so with that information, we went ahead.

With a good marketing program of four weeks, our house sold 5 days after the auction to the highest bidder at a price we were happy with - a great result in this difficult market.

What stood out to us was how professional and hard-working Lee was.

He kept us well informed at all times about how our marketing campaign was going and always had time for us. He was also friendly and pleasant to deal with.

I would highly recommend using Lee as your agent when selling your home.

Susan and Brenton Howell June 25, 2014

5 Rimu Court, Buderim

I have recently sold my house through Lee Sutherland and I can honestly say that he is a real estate agent of the highest calibre.

From the beginning to the end of the sale process Lee was highly professional at all times.

He remained positive and found solutions to any potential problems that arose.

I was impressed by the number of viewers that he arranged to visit the property.

I have no hesitation in recommending Lee to sell your house for you.

Ann Nuttall June 25, 2014

6 Nichols Ave, Beerwah

Hi Lee,

Many thanks for all your efforts in securing the sale for us at Beerwah.  After several attempts in the past couple of years it is very gratifying to have finally achieved the sale.

I was very impressed with your initial research into prices and selling times for similar properties in the area.  This meant that right from the start we had realistic expectations of what we could expect.

I appreciated the way you outlined the marketing strategy you were planning to use and the reasons behind it.

There is a certain level of communication expected when selling a house; I feel that the feedback you gave on the open house interest was prompt - a bonus from my point of view was the progressive summary you provided of the overall interest in our property, especially via the internet.

All in all, I found that you had researched what was happening with properties in the area in a difficult market and were in a position to give a realistic guide on where the market was at and what was likely to be our best strategy for achieving a sale.

Selling a property in a challenging market was never going to be simple, so I am delighted that we did achieve the sale; I am quite sure we would still have the property had we not had you 'on our team'.  Thank you for all that you did.

Colleen Moore June 25, 2014

Unit 1-2 Alexandra Parade, Maroochydore

Hello Lee.

Now that all is complete, just a note to formally express my gratitude and appreciation for selling my unit so quickly, and reaching considerably higher than the market valuation.

Having said that, there are so many other things that I’m even more grateful for. Initially I was so divided about selling, and as you know, had been dipping my toe in the water for many years, talking to many other agents as well as yourself. Probably would never have made it to the starting line without your help.

On three other occasions I have sold and bought property over a period of 35 years, but have never seen the level of professionalism you demonstrated, ‘Professionalism’ can be just a word. The patience, respect, humour, honesty, candour and confidentiality you show give it true meaning.

I think this work ethic is part of your DNA. You do these things naturally, and maybe don’t even realise their impact at the time; so I want to tell you what it looked like from my, the seller’s, perspective.

You inspired my trust – by listening to (and hearing) my ideas, suggestions, concerns and giving honest, considered responses, even the ones I didn’t want to hear. You promised me your way was a little different: well no kidding!

You didn’t see problems, only solutions; and when necessary called in the Cavalry to overcome them – thanks to your support team! Nothing seemed too much trouble, and to me this goes beyond professionalism and says more about the nature of the beast. These creative responses to anything that arose eased any anxieties I had along the way.

Be confident I will be talking about this with my friends, and of course, if you wish to use this letter as a testimonial, I am more than happy for you to do so.

18 Hudson Place, Bli Bli

To whom it may concern,

Rowan and Melissa Eppelstun (we) decided in March 2011 to sell our house and move on. This is a house we built in 2002, and had no real experience with the sale/purchase aspect of housing.

We looked around and had quite a few agents from different agencies come to our house and explain the process. We found Lee Sutherland from REMAX to be the “standout” agent.

He was up-front, honest, and professional in every aspect we had dealing with him.

During the time we had our house on the market, the market dropped significantly, and we had several offers. Lee assisted us greatly in this process. We had a conditional contract on our house, for a good price, which unfortunately fell through due to sellers’ issues with their own sale.

We have had our house go unconditional now, and are moving out in less than a week.

The contract/price Lee assisted in securing was well above expectations, and to be honest, if this contract had fallen through for any reason before being unconditional, we were looking at losing a lot more on any other offer that came our way. I believe this is a credit to Lee and his knowledge of how to secure a sale.

In future circumstances, if they arise, I would look up Lee again as an agent due to the confidence he builds with clients, the knowledge he has of the real-estate market, and the manner in which he composes himself.
