Brooke and Angela provided friendly service in a timely manner. We felt very comfortable to ask them for advice whenever we needed to. We've had a very positive experience with Ray White. March 2017

Awesome agent, awesome job at selling my property!!!
Lee Harding - MOUNT SHERIDAN, 25 Amazon Close
Living in Townsville, I had a property to sell in Cairns and rang Ray White Cairns in the hope that they would handle the sale. I was most interested when I realised that Angela Capitanio would be handling the sale. I had often seen her signs and heard her name here and there, and now I would get to see why her name comes to mind when you think of real estate in Cairns. The sale of the house was part of a divorce settlement and right from the start, Angela was very understanding of all the party’s individual situations. She was always professional, and I always had a very secure sense of her confidentiality. Angela is one of those professionals who will go ‘the extra mile’ and I have witnessed this first hand on many occasions leading up to the final settlement of this property. Another agents’ organisational and diplomacy skills would have been tested during this particular transaction but Angela never faltered and always moved forward, herself actioning strategies that clearly should have been carried out by one or other of the parties. Angela Capitanio is the only reason this property was settled successfully on the due date. I now know why Angela Capitanio’s name is synonymous with real estate in and around Cairns.
Angela Capitanio is the modern efficient Real Estate woman of North Queensland. She is great at finding the right deal for every ones budget. She is the prime time example of pure success due to her persistence and determination.
I have the highest regard and respect for Angela Capitanio, having had previous real estate dealings with her. When I decided recently to put my property on the market by way of a Public Auction, there was only one name that came to mind – Angela Capitanio. From the onset, both Angela and Brooke Capitanio conducted themselves professionally, efficiently and effectively. They kept me updated and informed throughout the marketing process, the open houses and feedback from prospective purchasers. They also provided valuable and extensive information that enabled me to set a realistic reserve. The outcome was a ‘win-win’, with my property selling under the hammer on Auction day. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in engaging Angela and Brooke Capitanio to assist me in either purchasing or selling property in the future, and recommending them to family and friends.

I picked up the keys this afternoon and saw there was a bottle and card in the bag as well.Thank you very much for them. Once we get properly moved in I will get your Business Development Manager to visit our property at Freshwater so we can get that organised as well. I must say thank you for your help during the sale. You do the real estate industry a great service by the way you conduct business. Professional, ethical and honest. No wonder you have sold so much over your career!
Firstly we would like to thank you for the selling of 4 Mist Green Close. We would also like to thank you & all your staff involved with 4 Mist Green Close over the last 5+ years. Thanks once again

Dear Angela We would like to thank you for your professionalism and dedication regarding the recent sale of 26/26 Sheridan St , Cairns.

Hi Angela, Thank you very much for successful sale of my unit and appreciate your Professional work effort !! Regards
It has been a year since we bought our apartment at Harbour Lights in Cairns. The anniversary of our purchase reminded us of the special attention we received from you and your staff a year ago. Your market knowledge, experience and honesty were invaluable during our first venture into Queensland real estate. As newcomers to Cairns we are also most grateful for the "above-and-beyond" advice you have given enabling us to integrate into the community. We are delighted with our new home and would be most happy to refer friends, family and colleagues to you for any of their real estate needs. All the best for many more successful years at the helm of Ray White Cairns.

"I would like to thank Angela and Col on the very quick sale of my property which sold in only 4 days after being for sale with another agent for 2 months! I found them very helpful and obliging and nothing was too much trouble for them. Both Angela and Col kept me informed of everything that was going on. They were both very professional regarding the sale. I would certainly recommend Angela and Col at Ray White Cairns Central, they made the whole sale stress free. They would ring my son-in law and my son and keep us well informed of what was going on. Thank you once again for everything"
Diane Stanger, 24-30 Falcon Street, Bayview Heights
We recently used Angela Capitanio and and her team for the sale of our property. The team were outstanding with their customer service from the beginning to end of our sale. I appreciated that they were not too pushy to take on our sale, a value I considered high on my list for our selected agent. Nothing was considered too much trouble and none of our questions were considered trivial. From the beginning their advice regarding our sale was solid and proved to be accurate as our property sold in 1 week. I highly recommend the team to others considering selling their property. Faultless!

"I have recently had the pleasure dealing with Col, Angela and the Team at Ray White Cairns. This Company would have to be the most professional, organised and friendly real estate company in Cairns. I have recently purchased a two bedroom unit close to the city. My Attention was drawn to this property, Col was selling. After a conversation with Col, I felt at ease. And confident together, we would achieve an outcome. He is very well measured, pleasant, honest and easy going person to deal with. He has an extensive knowledge of the local market and years of experience. I, Could go on and on about the service, and exceptional follow up service. Col provided throughout the entire process. But, I will allow you the experience I was fortunate enough to receive. An absolute pleasure!!! Thanks again Col, and all the best."
"When we decided to sell our property there was no question as to who we wanted as our agent, from the get go we said Angela, her expertise in the field and sales history won us over. She keeps you informed all the way and won't mind your phone calls to see if anything new is happening, so within a few months we had sold our house."
Angi McKenzie - Mount Sheridan
"Thank you Angela Capitanio and Col Hancox for selling the block for us. We wish we'd signed up with you in the first place in 2008! 5 years on the market – sold within two weeks of Col Hancox touching it! Now this money's paid off 66% off our home loan we can get on with our life with greater financial security. Thanks for being complete professionals with integrity and decency. We recommend your real estate group to anyone considering selling or buying in Cairns – you're the best!
The Atkins Family, 254 Toogood Road, Bayview Heights, May 20
"After two years trying unsuccessfully to sell with two different agents I contacted Angela Capitanio and within one month had a contract with a West Australian buyer at a fair price. The contract was successfully completed and while awaiting settlement Col Hancox from Angela Capitanio's office found me the apartment I had been looking to purchase in the right place at the right price. I did not have to spend days looking at unsuitable places. Again everything went to plan and I am now very happily enjoying my new home."
Bob Halstead - 12 Forum Close, Mooroobool, February 2013
Angela – has provided an amazing service in marketing and selling our property. The team at Ray White Central offer an array of strategies that I feel exposed my property to its full potential. This has included a personalised service with attention to detail and constant updating on the progress of the sale. I would just like to say a big thank you to the team at Ray White Central and I will continue to recommend Angela Capitanio as being the top real estate agent for Far North Queensland. My experiences once selling my property with other several real estate agents has been horrible in the way of rude communication, unreliable in turning up for appointments and lack of interest towards the buyer. I did not realise how lucky I was to have Angela support me through the sale of our property until I experienced what other services had to offer.
"Buying and selling can be very stressful, except when you have an agent like Angela Capitanio. Entirely professional - Angela acts and works with dedication in a tough job - the property market! If you want to entrust someone to handle the buying or selling of your property in the best possible manner, I have no hesitation in recommending her for the care of one of your greatest assets - your home!"
Sharon Baragry - Brinsmead
"Dear Angela, I read today of your 21st anniversary in the real estate industry. Congratulations. Your story is one that inspires me greatly."
Matt Powe - Powe Property
"We would like to personally congratulate you and your team on winning the Cairns Post Award at the Ray White Annual Awards last Thursday, as well as your win for the 3rd Top 3 Partners in Residential Sales - Commission at the Ray White Annual Awards last Thursday. To be acknowledged for such prestigious awards are a fantastic feat and we here at The Courier Mail are very proud to work with such high achievers. Again, Congratulations, and we look forward to working with you in the future"

"I would like to thank you so much for all your help as we worked together to sell my house. I found all your services impeccable. You were open, generous with your time and thoughtful to my needs. I will recommend you to others without hesitation knowing your service was just not for me but because you are thoroughly professional in your approach. Thanks again"
Nikola Wilkie - Gordonvale
"I recently purchased a property ( for which Angela was acting for the seller) in what became a very convoluted and drawn out contract with many difficulties, changes and unique problems. Angela always kept me updated, was extremely efficient with effecting all the changes and was consistently easy to contact and talk to. I was so very impressed with her level of professionalism and service that I asked her to sell 2 of my properties, as I knew she would genuinely seek to understand my needs and find the right buyer. Angela listens, acts and works with her clients and staff as one large team and mostly she can be trusted. Having worked with Angela from both a buying and selling point of view, I can truly recommend her services. Her integrity, genuine nature and immaculate professionalism stand out and she is simply a joy to work with. I look forward to dealing with her in the future"
Lisa Costa - City View Estate
"My first impression of Angela was gained 19 years ago when I moved to Cairns with my family, and we were considering buying a house. We had undertaken numerous house inspections and were simply tired of real estates, their agents and decided to buy land and build instead. We were very impressed with Angela, she was very dignified, softly spoken and her integrity was evident, and so too was her passion to represent her client, whilst at the same time she was genuinely interested in the buyer's needs. Having just been through the run of the mill real estate experiences, we found Angela to be very unique and so brilliantly different. Angela made such an impression on me, I found myself eagerly following her career and success throughout the following years here in Cairns. Sadly for us, a time came when we needed to sell our beloved family home, and there was no contemplation needed, we simply called Angela Capitanio, it did not even concern us which Real - estate Angela was associated with, we simply wanted her to sell our home. Angela Capitanio lived up to every facet of our expectations and the perceptions we had of her attributes and abilities"
Bev Snell - Redlynch
"We have both bought and sold property through Angela, finding both extremely positive experiences. Recently, Angela sold our home in City View after a marketing campaign of just 4 weeks. She involved us in each step, stressing that the best results required a team effort. The results spoke for themself. A quick sale at a price we were happy with. Angela gave us a lot of advice on how to present our house to its best advantage. Her experience and contacts in the industry gave us a lot of confidence in her opinions and advice. Importantly for us, her opinions are backed by market research which was made available to us. We can recommend Angela, as we would, without a doubt, engage her services again."
Michelle & Andrew Maddocks - City View Estate
"I wish to extend my thanks and appreciation to Angela Capitanio for all her assistance in selling our property. Angela was professional, pleasant and a pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitation recommending her agency to anyone contemplating the sale or purchase of property"
Cathy Marino – Mooroobool
"After appointing Angela as selling agent for my property I am delighted to place on record my appreciation for both the professional and personal service provided during the selling process. For some time during this process I was overseas and the process continued without any disconnection in the service provided by Angela. Thank you very much"
Lynette Barker - 5 Arran Close, Edge Hill, December 2012
"I just wanted to Thank You for assisting in making my first home purchase a less daunting experience. The time, assistance and guidance you provided was greatly appreciated. Many Thanks"
Kari Meehan - Kamerunga
"I have known Angela Capitanio for several years. During the time I have known Angela she has sold various properties for us. These properties have been our places of residence as well as investment properties. On many occasions the properties have sold before the time frames we had allowed. This enabled us to showcase more display properties and thus enhance our business. I have always been appreciative of Angela's consistent work ethic and know that she will persist to satisfy the buyer and seller with equal respect. She is honest with her dealings and this is evident by her appraisals matching her sales with the properties she has sold for us. Angela is widely known for her successful business as well as her volunteer work in the community. It is an honour to deal with a person such as Angela and it pleases me to recommend her and hear of further successful outcomes that have followed as a result"
"My elderly mother recently decided that with no immediate family left in Cairns and with her deteriorating health to consider, she would like to move to an aged care facility at Caloundra where she would be well looked after. Angela's impeccable professionalism had been previously experienced when selling and buying property and so there was no hesitation in once again engaging Angela to sell the family home so that she could move. Angela ensured that my mother never felt stressed or inconvenienced in any way during the sales process – a challenge at this stage of my mother's life to say the least. She understood my mother's situation and, as is her nature, went above and beyond her duty to do the best by her client"
