What our people say about us

What can I say about Keyes & Co Real Estate? Recently I had the unpleasant task of selling my mother’s house to fund her ongoing Aged Care needs due to Dementia. I chose Keyes & Co on reputation as I heard they were good and gave them Sole Agency. The house was in a good location and good condition, but was 40 years old and at a time when market was not in the sellers favour due to the high number of houses on the market, the task of selling was going to be tough. During the sale I was given advice on how to proceed and kept informed of any interested buyers, market trends or any actions taken by Keyes & Co on my behalf through e-mails, phone calls and in person. To my surprise the house sold within 5 months and the price achieved by Keyes & Co was in the range we were seeking. I know how hard they worked to achieve the sale for me and would recommend them to any potential customer either buying or selling a property and would expect them to give you the same good service. My Mum is now settled into full time care. Thanks Keyes & Co

Very easy and fast transaction, very good communication kept us up to date with what was happening. We are very happy with our purchase.

Whilst looking for a property to purchase in Townsville, Keyes & Co (in particular Justin) were by far the most professional agents we came across. After deciding to purchase a property through them, the whole process was straight forward & stress free & they bent over backwards to help us in the short time we were there. If in future we are looking to buy another property, Keyes & co will be our first port of call.

Selling your family home or an investment property is a major life experience, one when you rely on professionalism and honesty. Whenever we buy or sell we always “interview” the agents to select person we feel has our best interests at heart and the person who will go that extra mile for “us” not just another vendor, a person who is genuinely passionate about what they do. We recently sold our last property with Tess – we sat down and talked about what we wanted and why and where we were heading next. We gave Tess a very short timeframe as a challenge thinking we would get the usual “Oh well we have to wait and see what the market is doing spiel”. Not Tess – straight back with not a problem, Done! And yes Done it was in 2 weeks. Tess is a dynamic young woman with more passion and enthusiasm for her profession than we have seen in a very long time. If you are looking for nothing short of 100% then Tess Sellwood is your agent. Fresh positive warm and openly honest and an intelligent switched on young woman, are some of the attributes that drew us to Tess and we have no hesitation in recommending her to any prospective client. A pocket dynamo one might say, Tess will not let you down

I am pleased to inform that my dealings with Keyes & Co Property have been very professional and efficient. In particular, Tess Sellwood, she has gone above and beyond what we expected which allowed us to get the price we were after. Tess was always on time, conducted herself in a professional manner and always kept us up to date with the latest developments. I would highly recommend Keyes & Co Property to anyone wanting to sell their property. We could not be happier.


Paul and I cannot thank you enough for the way in which you handled the recent sale of our property. We were hopeful of a quick sale, but never did we think it would happen within three weeks! When it came time to pick a real estate agent, the choice was simple. Looking around Riverside Gardens we noticed that Keyes & Co properties didn't remain on the market for very long. As we were going to be renting while our house was on the market, a quick sale was important to us. As this was the first time we had sold a house, we were a little nervous about the process - the costs involved, the sometimes unflattering stereotypes of real estate agents and the general fear of the unknown. However, all of our concerns were put to rest upon meeting Damien. Damien's relaxed yet incredibly professional approach made the whole process a breeze. We never felt pushed or rushed into making a decision. From the advertising proofs to the presentation of offers, we were always kept informed and involved through the process. The Keyes and Co office team are also incredibly professional and helpful. They were great at keeping us informed of key milestones and following up any outstanding matters. And as for the thank you present hamper that we received on settlement?!? Seriously impressive and delicious! Thank you all again. It was an absolute pleasure and we cannot praise you enough

We have dealt with Damien as both a buyer and seller. Keyes & Co Property assisted us to achieve a great result for the sale of our property. The service was nothing but professional in each instance and we were well informed during the process. We would highly recommend their services to future clients
