Hi Dan, I just wanted to belatedly thank you for your help on the day at the Swans Rugby Luncheon. I am not sure how you did it but your made money come out of nowhere and it has ended up helping us make a great profit for the lunch. My guess is that is was the most profitable luncheon ye and was also a great day. I now know who is going to be auctioning my house if we ever end up selling. Thanks again from all of us at the club.
We recently had the pleasure of selling our home of 11 years with Ray White Maroochydore. We chose the Auction process with Dan Sowden, Principal of Ray White Maroochydore as our Auctioneer. Again we have been blown away by the total professionalism of the Ray White Maroochydore team and Dan Sowden. Dan is at the ‘top of his game’, a consummate professional and he achieved a desired result for us. The whole process was conducted seamlessly and with outstanding professionalism and experience. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Maroochydore and Dan Sowden to anyone wishing to sell their property.

Hi Dan, Just wanted to send a quick email to thank yourself and Jason Mills for the very friendly, professional and successful sale of our first property. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with everyone at Ray White Maroochydore.
