Sales Associate, Ray White Whitsunday
'Bernard joined Ray White Whitsunday in 2007 after experience in a variety of occupations bringing him into contact with many people from all walks of life. Prior to entering real estate Bernard spent the previous 7 years in the hospitality industry where he developed a strong focus on customer service.
After first living in the Whitsundays in the late 1980's, Bernard has noticed many changes in the area since returning again in 2001 to settle permanently with his family. From involvement in a $200 million redevelopment of Hayman Island (Bernard was in landscaping), working in Airlie Beach and a managerial position at a resort, he has witnessed the myriad of change in the Whitsundays.
Bernard, and his wife Viv, are parents of three children and they hold in high regard, the schools, the lifestyle and most importantly the feeling of community. From a childhood in country NSW, to the busy city lifestyle of Sydney, Bernard believes that the Whitsundays is now 'home' and wants to help others achieve that goal too.'
Bernards support, understanding, feedback and effort in the whole process - prior to placing the property on the market - placing the property on the market - even with a conditional sale pending he still actively promoted the property & in the final settlement process. Would highly recommend Bernard and seek his services again.

Very professional and understanding of what is required and easy to talk. Thank you Bernard.
Easygoing and got what I asked for.
Hi Bernard Well done mate You certainly deserve a medal This deal must go down as one of the highest soul searching efforts in history of North Queensland A great result Peter Alexander Director - Sales & Marketing Ray White commercial (Queensland)
He always returned our calls promptly and kept us in touch with what is happening in regard to selling our house.
Bernard was a very polite down to earth person and went about his job for us in a professional manner. I was very pleased with the effort we received from Bernard. And I would have no hesitation in working with Bernard woods again. Thanks very much Bernard.
Thank you to Bernard Woods for his tireless effort in selling our family home. Bernard went above and beyond in getting the contract and sale of our house. His enthusiasm and honesty was refreshing and his extensive local knowledge was invaluable. I would have no hesitation in recommending Bernard to other sellers in the Whitsunday region. Thanks again Bernard.
He was very responsive and followed up with diligence each and every lead. I had had the property on the market with another agent for 10 months and got no where. Bernard was always on the phone and after about 8 weeks had secured a contract - I was very happy.
Mark, I though I would drop you a quick note to let you know how pleased I was with the service I received from Bernard Woods with the sale of my Shute Harbour property. After having it with another agent for ten months who I never heard from I was very pleased with the very active interest Bernard took in the sale. He was on the phone keeping me up to date with prospects and progress so I always knew what was going on. After about 8 weeks he was able to secure a contract in what is still a soft market for Shute Harbour. Bernard was able to negotiate the price upwards and understood the value of securing even a few thousand extra when it looked as if the offer was final. While disappointed I no longer own a property in the area I was very pleased with the overall result and the high level of service that Bernard provided. Regards, Peter

Bernard was engaged by myself to list and manage a selling property in Proserpine earlier this year. I found Bernard to be informed, polite, timeley and efficient in all dealings, both over the phone, via email and in person. Bernard, importantly, was available to me at any time, with an honest and reliable answer to any question or query I proposed. His knowledge of the current Market was accurate and very much appreciated. Our conversations were uncomplicated and comfortable, leaving me feeling that my input was valued and considered. I have, and will continue to recommend Bernard to any local person wanting to list a property for sale. As a result of dealing with such a professional, your business will now secure a second lisitng in the future, being another of my properties in Cannon Valley.
Hi Mark...........We wanted to tell you that our house went on the market a few weeks back and we now have a contract, in fact we now have an unconditional contract and all this is due to your ever helpful salesman.......Bernard Woods. I have dealt over many years of buying and selling property through various Real Estates in Queensland and NSW, but I have to be perfectly honest here by saying that Bernard displayed an incredible wealth on knowledge, was extremely easy to talk to and was also very helpful in discussing the pro's and cons of going to market. Nothing was any trouble for Bernard, and he always made himself available to discuss any concerns we may have had, and that's the one thing that we didn't have to wory about, because there were no concerns forthcoming as Bernard had everything sorted out. If I was to buy or sell property here again, I would have no hesitation in going to Bernard and have him as my sales rep. I have thanked him, but I would like you to thank him again on our behalf, for the great job he did.

Dear Bernard, RE: OUR HOUSE AT COUNTRY RD, CANNONVALE Q 4802 Thank you Bernard for handling the sale of our property. It is very much appreciated how you kept us informed of the happenings all along the way. We have no hesitation in recommending you and your professional services to anyone we come in contact with when the opportunity arises. Thank you once again and our very best wishes. Yours Sincerely,
K & J Minchinton
Dear Mark & Bernard, Just a short email to express my thanks to you both, for the 'express' sale of our property at 82 Galbraith Park Drive, Cannonvale. To say I was delighted at selling the property in only four days, after the first ad appeared in the Whitsunday Times & the following 'open house' on Saturday, is an understatement. The key, I believe, to this quick sale was taking your advice on setting the asking price, plus your speedy follow up with the interested parties and my wife's endeavour to ensure the house presented superbly
Evening Mark, we would like to thank all your team for helping us in the successful sale of our home, 180 Tucker Road, we would particularly like to thank Bernard. Without him things wouldn't have gone so smoothly for us, he was always professional & positive without giving us any false hopes for a quick sale, he explained everything very clearly for us, particularly the auction process that we had no idea about & thankfully went well. Once again thanks to you all.

Dear Ray White, Recently I came into your office on my lunch break deciding to sell my property. I had been thinking of it for a while but was still quite unsure and needed some help to sort my muddled mind! I was introduced to Bernard Woods and I would like to thank him and your staff for the professional way in which they handled my sale. I had some near impossible requests, I wanted my unit ready for auction in under 2 weeks. Bernard's advise to me from the start was realistic but positive and I appreciated his honesty. He worked through the weekend to have everything ready for me and explained the process in a manner which I understood completely. We had a result almost immediately, well before auction, and Bernard was a complete professional throughout the negotiations and more importantly was able to keep me calm! This is the third time I have dealt with a Real Estate company and I have never had the service I experienced with yours nor felt as much trust. I am very grateful to Bernard and you staff. Thank-you.
I hereby want to express my appreciation for the excellent professional execution of the sale of my home. It is not the best of markets currently to sell real estate, however the efforts Bernard put in to keep potential buyers interested and after about 7 weeks of marketing being able to provide me with a reasonable offer which was accepted after some negotiation was as good as I could hope for given the current economic circumstances
I found Bernard to be very professional and extremely helpful on many levels.
