On top of that Barry kept us fully informed with information on advertising providing us with progress reports.
Seemed genuine person - not too hard sell.
Barry was an outstanding agent with extensive experience and specialised skills. His expertise was directly related to the successful outcome.
Personable, committed, knowledgeable, good communicator and sensitive to our family's situation regards the deceased estate.
Barry was a pleasure to deal with. He was responsive and helpful in getting the deal done respecting the purchaser and seller well.
Thank you so much for the professionalism that you demonstrated while we were marketing, and ultimately, selling our property. As you know, we were at first reluctant to consider the expense of a marketing campaign, but we are now firmly of the opinion that it was a very wise decision and we appreciate the delicacy you demonstrated in letting us come to this understanding in our own time. We are also grateful for the way in which you communicated all the feedback that you solicited from the people who attended our open farm inspections. It was very useful in providing us with a clearer idea of what the market thought our property was worth. Your inclusion of us in every stage of the design of the marketing campaign enabled us to gain insights into the underlying messages that were driving this campaign, and to understand how well your expertise guided us. That, and the highly professional photographer and marketing agency that were used, provided us with the best possible chance of selling the property. And, to our great delight, we were successful in obtaining an excellent sale and both Sandy and I would again like to express our gratitude to you. We have provided your name to a number of people we know and cannot speak highly enough of your approach. As the buyers said to us “If you hadn’t had that half page ad in the Courier Mail, we would never have seen this property, because we weren’t looking in that area.” So many thanks again and very best wishes. Warmest regards Deirdre McLaughlin and Sandy Wieland

Hi Barry, Have been meaning to write to you a note and actually post it, but have decided that's not going to happen in "this day and age" so a quick email. Thank you for all the work you put into getting our property sold (and promptly we need to add!) at Tallegalla. You made what could have been quite a stressful time go smoothly and stress free. It was just a shame we had to sell in such a poor economic climate, but you got the job done! Anyway we also enjoyed your company over the time. We look forward to catching up with you again sometime… perhaps when we win the lottery, but more likely before. Cheers and thanks again,Deb and Grant Peacey

It is with absolute confidence that I recommend Barry Quinn of Ray White Rural, Brisbane. I chose Barry as my agent to market Meossa, my rural lifestyle property at Rosevale located in the Scenic Rim. Barry had a very successful sales record in selling similar properties in this region, well above any other agents or real estate companies. Right from the outset Barry explained the marketing strategy we would use in great detail and with enthusiasm. The campaign was tailored to my budget and I could not be more satisfied with the quality results that were achieved. He used his many contacts in the advertising media to gain free full page editorials in the Brisbane and regional newspapers.....an absolute bonus. Bulk mail-outs to their buyer database were made as well as the use of an effective online marketing strategy with a great Virtual Tour of the property. The Open Farm Days were all well attended. Barry was on hand to positively promote the property, feedback was given to me immediately following the opens and full written reports and analysis were sent to me during the following week. Very impressive indeed. Barry is one of those guys who is driven by detail but never loses sight of the bigger picture, a successful sale....as the vendor, you could not ask for a better agent to work in your interest. My property was sold within five weeks of the first Open Farm Day.

"2507 Ipswich Road, Oxley" " I recently had the pleasure of working with Barry Quinn at Ray White Rural – Brisbane when we employed their team to market my parents home. This was a small acreage property close to Brisbane that my elderly parents had called home for over 40 years. The property was marketed for auction, however was sold before the auction date to a keen buyer.Throughout the process I found Barry and the Ray White team to be very professional, yet also extremely courteous and mindful of my elederly parent's unique circumstance and needs. I have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Rural and will surely use them again when the need arises." Marcel Veraart………..Ipswich Road, Oxley.

Barry Quinn and Daniel Kelly communicated very well with us at all stages of the sales process. They formulated an excellent marketing plan covering two states, a number of media types and numerous contacts. They worked with us closely to ensure that we were happy with all processes involved.Barry and Daniel provided constant feedback via email, phone and face to face meetings on all prospective buyers. They worked very well both individually and as a team. Our beach front, northern NSW property sold for a very great price under the hammer at auction in what is widely considered to be a soft market. The auction process was a positive one for us and we were extremely impressed by the personal and professional service of the Ray White auctioneer Philip Parker.We feel that we made the right choice in engaging Barry and Daniel from the Ray White group and are happy to recommend them to others.
