We are firm believers in the stability of the real estate industry in Millmerran, with all sectors of the market – residential, rural and industrial – remaining very affordable. We have found location is a key selling factor, with Millmerran being so close to city neighbours, yet with pricing so much more affordable. This attracts high-quality buyers to the region. Millmerran is located only 1 hour from Toowoomba, 2 ½ hours from Brisbane, and between 3 and 4 hours from the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. Millmerran offers a quiet rural lifestyle. As a rural town, Millmerran has good facilities including a hospital, retirement village, sporting facilities and good schools.
For us, real estate is not a job, it is a way of life. It is not a job to sell property in the town or district to a potential buyer as we love the area, the lifestyle and living here. We also like the challenge of finding the right property for each individual buyer and the satisfaction of bringing the seller and buyer together and then making the sale happen. The end result of settlement and having both parties satisfied is very rewarding.
The sales team at Millmerran Rural like to be upfront with buyers and sellers. For sellers, this means providing them with truthful appraisals, yet also allowing the client to make final decisions. For buyers, it means giving all the facts on a property. Honesty and integrity always come first, and this has served Millmerran Rural well in an industry where those values can sometimes be difficult to find.
Millmerran Rural has a professional approach to property management with experienced, well trained, staff available to assist at any time. Our full-time Senior Property Manager, Kerry, has been an integral team member since opening in 2004. Melissa, also a Property Manager, and Mandy on Reception, assist Kerry well and complete the team.
