Agent Reviews


I found that Clare was very proactive with feedback and always on hand if I had any questions. Clare and her associate Dylan dealt with my tenant respectfully which allowed good access for inspections to get the property sold quickly and at full asking price.

Kevin & Michele

Clare Brettell was with us all the way through this journey. Clare was available at all times or would contact you as soon as she was able. Clare was a calming voice and offered wonderful advice when situations were a little stressful and would answer questions to the best of her ability or go away and come back with the answers. Wonderful support.


Clare is focused, passionate about her work and learns and knows what I want. She is a hard worker, a good marketer and doesn't give up

Mr & Mrs Treschman

Clare was easy to deal with. She made suggestions that we considered worthwhile, she kept in touch regularly particularly after an open house. She worked hard to get a sale.

Steven & Zari

Clare was outstanding in all aspects of her work. The total time period she represented us was approx. 4 months to sell our house. This included twice weekly viewings, advertising arrangements and weekly emailed reports. Her phone calls and email communications were also accurate and effective which we appreciated. Most importantly she achieved a successful end result for us to sell our house! I would highly recommend Clare Brettell to anyone on the Gold Coast looking to sell their property! By far the most enthusiastic, dedicated and committed Real Estate Agent I have met over the past 20 years! Thank you Clare!

Michael Day

Best Sales Yet - Over the last 30 years I have bought and sold around 10 properties. The sale of this property through Clare has been amazing. The property was sold to an investor on Clare's databank within the first week and without any inspections! We got a price we wanted, quick settlement and the easiest process I have encountered. Clare kept me informed at all stages and even after settlement, ensuring there were no issues. I can't recommend Clare highly enough, she was fantastic.


From the start, Clare and Cathrine were really approachable and upfront with us. We felt we could ask basic questions about real estate matters.


Good service, communication and speedy result.

Mr Rich

She kept me informed of everything throughout the entire process.

Steve & Cheryl

Prompt Efficient Service


Clare never gave up on what has proven to be a difficult property to sell.

E & M Tritsaris- Southport Central, Scarborough St, Southport

We greatly appreciate your honesty, professionalism and open communication throughout this process. Your drive and willingness to help was a key factor in the quick sale of our property. We have dealt with other agencies and can honestly say that your service was exceptional. You most certainly exceeded our expectations.

Brenda Johnson- Southport Central

Clare recently sold an apartment held in trust by myself acting as executor of a deceased estate. Clare s been extremely helpful in advising me on how the apartment should be marketed, keeping me up to date with number of inspections and open homes held. Advising me of the changes in market values in the area and keeping in touch with me on a weekly basis. I value Clare's expertise in property marketing and would not hesitate to recommend her in this area

Graham & Sue Steptoe- Southport Central

The purpose of this email is to provide an unsolicited testimonial for Clare who, I am very grateful to say, has over the past month, been a model of honesty and professionalism and a credit to your organisation. Starting with our initial contact with Clare by email from the UK, Clare has represented herself and Ray White in an extremely professional and helpful manner. When we arrived in Southport some two months ago we were led to believe by our rental agency that all was doom and gloom in the Aus property market. Meeting Clare was a complete revelation. From the off it was clear that she did not have a negative thought in her head, she was knowledgeable, positive, and my wife and I knew straightaway that we were in good hands. Records will show that Clare sold our apartment in double quick time. For my wife Sue and myself it has been the right lady, the right time resulting in the right price.

Serafim and Almerinda GUEDES- 31904 Southport Central, Lawson St, Southport

I was extremely content with your efforts to help us as investors and buyers and we greatly appreciate your patience and attitudes towards us every step of the way. We look forward to meeting you again some day.

I was especially impressed with the way Clare maintained contact with me throughout the listing, marketing and sales period. She presented a helpful and friendly attitude which made the selling of my home less of a hassle for me. Clare displayed honesty & integrity at all times'

Grant Chapman- Barney Street, Southport

Clare is 100%, I couldn't be happier. She under promises and over delivers. I am very happy, absolutely wrapped in fact and I will be using her again in the future as I have other properties

Louisa Walkley- Bauer Street, Southport

I am extremely impressed by Clare the young woman who is handling my particular property. I walked in to your office off the street and the minute I met her she came across as a total professional. I must mention I did see a lot of other real estate agents in Southport and I was quite disappointed in their attitude. I met Clare and we spoke about my situation and she gave me a whole package of information which I read on the train on the way back to Brisbane. That was the information I really needed so I was able to make my decision to appoint Clare and your agency

Peter Cowell- Billington Street, Labrador

The service I am receiving from Clare is exceptionally good and very professional


Clare was very professional in my dealings with her and she was successful in finding me a buyer.


I was very happy with Clare's positive attitude toward selling my property. I also felt her sincerity and sense of responsibility with her prompt emailing back to me whenever I ask question. That manner eased my mind lots.

C Barnes

Clare was always beautifully happy to help me in any way she could in re guards to selling my property
