Jodie Kneebone

Sales Associate/Executive Assistant to Therese Plath, Ray White Cairns South

Positive, energetic, bubbly, honest, enthusiastic and self motivated are just a few attributes used to describe Jodie Kneebone. Jodie with her vivacious personality was given a golden opportunity over ten years ago to train under one of Queensland’s most successful and exceptional consultants, Therese Plath. This makes this an enviable team which sets a high standard of professionalism above all. You will feel as though you have known and respected them for years.

Jodie’s journey into real estate has had one simple focus which was to strive to an unsurpassed level of client service based on integrity and results with a strong work ethic and “can do” attitude. Buying and Selling your greatest asset can be a stressful experience and Jodie is very passionate about knowing Therese’s clients are being looked after efficiently, professionally and with their best interests at heart. Jodie knows the importance of dedication, hard word and most importantly Customer Service.

Having worked in the hospitality and customer service industry, Jodie sets a high standard which is all she knows after working alongside Therese Plath for so long. With the combined skills of Therese & Jodie their vision together is to provide seamless customer service for every client and continue to raise standards in the Cairns Real Estate Industry and make sure our clients achieve their desired outcomes.


We found Therese and Jodie to be a fantastic team. They constantly stayed in touch with us throughout the whole process. Perhaps most importantly, they provided sound advice, guidance and options on the best direction and then gave us time to make up our own mind without any pressure. I would thoroughly recommend Therese and Jodie to anyone looking to sell their house for the best price in the current market.

Hi Therese Mum has asked me to let both you and Jodie know how much she appreciates the work you have both put into assisting her to sell her home in Arno Terrace and move on with the next stage of her life. I would also like to express my appreciation of your efforts and the way that you interacted with Mum during the difficult times the market has been going through lately and the efforts to get the best price possible for her. Thanks again Michelle and Faye

Giving Sole Agency for the sale of my home to Ray White Cairns Central was a very wise move indeed. Therese Plath and her assistant Jodi Kneebone looked after me in such a kind and professional manner, I would certainly recommend them to anyone contemplating selling their property. They guided me through the process which resulted in a sale in just a few short weeks. They made what can be a very stressful time a lot easier and I still think of them as friends. I am grateful to them both for their caring attitude towards me.

Rob & I have found Therese and Jodie wonderful to deal with. As you know, we have bought and sold many properties in and around Cairns since 1993 and during this time we have experienced many different agents during various stages of the markets highs and lows. This market has certainly been another one of the toughest, in which you guided and recommended what course of action we should take and helped achieve a sale for us! Your regular phone calls and updates were excellent, as well as your punctuality with appointments, as we have found in the past that this does not occur with other agents. To us, this is the absolute key area of importance which makes you stand out and shine above the rest. I happened to see a sign when I was in Victoria recently and it was a real estate agents sign which said "the red carpet experience".....I believe that we experienced that with you! (Keep us in mind if you come across any ''bargains of the century'' as we are always looking for opportunities!

Rob & Judy Jackson

We will highly recommend Therese, Jodie and team to any friends and colleagues interested in selling their home. Therese and Jodie were extremely professional, considerate of our needs and provided excellent feedback throughout the selling process. We are aware we had an unusual property that wasn't an easy sell, yet it was sold well within our time frame and the projected average sale time for acreage properties. Thanks you so much for all your support and nurturing during what is generally a stressful time for most families.

Before selling our house, we did a lot of research on who we thought would represent us best. Therese Plath was the stand out choice, and we were right. Therese, Jodie and the rest of her team offered a professional, experienced service that, in our opinion, is unrivalled in Cairns. Honest advice, a genuine appraisal and constant feedback during the selling process is what we received. In this world, you get what you pay for, and Therese achieves results. You can''t ask for more than that.

Sharon & Simon Wilson

We want to thank Jodie and Therese for the wonderful service we received from Ray White Cairns Central. We put our house on the market at a time when the market was depressed, and even with these conditions Jodie and Therese sold our house within our time frame and at the right price. The service we received, we believe was above what we would have received from some other agents. The ladies seemed to go the extra mile and make an otherwise stressful transaction as smooth as possible. Thanks Jodie and Therese.

Jason & Amy Bender

Thank you for selling our home so quickly at the very best price - we are very happy with the result. You and your office communicated with us so well, we knew exactly what was happening and when in regards to the marketing of our property. Therese and Jodie you exceeded our expectations on every level making the process so smooth. Your kindness and genuine care for our family has been really lovely and greatly appreciated. We look forward to having a long standing relationship with you and your office in our Real Estate futures.

Sarah Williams and Robert Willmett

My husband and four children moved to Cairns in January 08 and started looking for the "perfect house" We tried several Real-estate Agents but weren''t impressed with the service. We then had the good fortune to try Ray White Central and found a business that offered complete honesty, integrity, and an attitude where nothing is to much trouble. Therese Plath and Jodie Kneebone went to extraordinary trouble to find us a lovely family home, Kept us up to date regularly with progress and we had a trouble free settlement. We would love to thank them both for their input, kindness and friendship and would firmly recommend their service and assistance to everyone! P.S.... A big thankyou once again for your beautiful "Welcome" gift, it looks gorgeous in our home!

We found Therese, Jodie and team of Ray White Central very dedicated and helpful in both buying our new house and selling our previous one. Their friendly, personal approach provided us with constant feedback and flexibility with advertising and 'Open House' situations. With perserverence and determination, they achieved a realistic price for us, considering the difficult market in which we were buying and selling. We were very satisfied with the teams services and would recommend them to others.

Michael and Kath O'Halloran

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Therese & Jodie for their support during the sale process of our house, in a slower market than we have been used to over the recent years. Both Therese & Jodie continue to be proactive in searching for our next dream property, and we respect their professional can-do attitudes. Their assistance is greatly appreciated and we have formed a wonderful ongoing working relationship with them, and would not hesitate recommending them to anyone purchasing or selling a property.

Sam and Belinda

We appreciate their keeping us constantly updated and informed throughout the whole process and also their effort to achieve very close to our asking price. I would recommend Ray White Cairns to anyone considering selling or buying. Once again thanks so much, we really appreciate everything you have done.

I recently had the pleasure of listing my Kanimbla Hts home with Therese Plath and her Team of dedicated professionals. They were just that - Courteous, prompt, informative and efficient from the first day we met until sale. Therese Plath has vast experience in the Cairns Real Estate Market and was able to provide me with a broad range of marketing strategies to suit my needs. My house sold within 4 weeks of advertisement, while numerous other houses listed prior to mine in surrounding suburbs remained unsold by other agents. I was extremely happy with the final sale price, with Therese negotiating a higher settlement figure than I first anticipated. I have no hesitation in recommending Therese Plath and her team from Ray White

Selling your house is said to be one of the most stressful times of your life…….BUT….. it won't have to be if you choose the absolutely fabulous team of Therese Plath and Jodie Kneebone of Ray White Cairns to be your agent. Dreading the process of selling my house but knowing it had to happen, I called them. Within hours they had made time to meet with me to discuss my needs and were immediately proactive in their ultra professional way. The result? Within three days my house was sold for the amount I wanted. Throughout the whole process this supremely professional team managed all the details leaving me confident and relaxed. I highly recommend this dynamic duo. A huge thanks to them for their care and personal service.

Judy Wooldridge

We recently listed our property with Ray White Cairns Central with the knowledge we were attempting to sell our house during a tough market. We were very happy with the outcome though, our house sold in not only a shorter than expected time frame but we were also very pleased with the price we received. We put that down to the local knowledge, skills and experience of Therese Plath and the staff at Ray White. It was a pleasure dealing with Therese and Jodie who provided us with the high level of service and professionalism you would come to expect from such a well respected and highly regarded agency. Therese was always just a phone call away and always offered friendly and personalised advice. We would not hesitate to use Therese and Ray White again in future years and would strongly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their property.

Anthony & Alison

Peter and I would like to thank you both very much for all your assistance and help in purchasing our beautiful home. This was Peter's and my first auction we had attended and Jodie, we would like to thank you very much for your support and guidance. Therese, your help in dealing with our financial advisor was greatly appreciated. Peter and I found you both very professional and kind, it was lovely dealing with you both and will highly recommend you to anyone buying or selling.

Peter & Raylene

It is with pleasure that I write to you all, to thank you for putting in the hard yards & effort to achieve the sale of my home. Therese I appreciate your professional approach and willingness to assist me with a difficult decision that had to be made. Mine was an difficult home to market and sell, being not of the normal desired 3 bed 2 bath configuration and a one off design in todays difficult times. Through your hard work and professional approach you achieved the sale at an acceptable figure, whereas another well know Estate Agent here in Cairns could not even attract one person in 12 weeks of listing to view my home. Therese, you, and your willing, hard working associates Jodie up front and personal, and Tamara beavering away in the office, were the epitome of professional marketing at all times, especially as I had no budget for advertising at all. I thank you for your professional willing and at all times pleasant approach to a difficult task.

Phil Crockford

We would love to thank you both so much for all your hard work with the sale of our house. We never expected the sale to be so fast, brilliant! We would highly recommend you to our friends. When we met Jodie we both agreed without a doubt that Jodie and Ray White would be the best agency for us. Jodie is so confident, friendly and comes across as a very positive person. Amber adored Jodie too. Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much!

Debbie and Dean Flood

From the start we were impressed by Therese Plath's warm friendly approach, she and Jodie make a great team and catered to our personalised needs. With two young children flexibility and understanding of my needs was essential, both Therese and Jodie knew exactly how to help. A steady detailed flow of information about potential buyers, the local market and information on a wide scale was always at hand to keep myself and family informed. Therese brings a wealth of knowledge, professionalism, and calmness to the sale process. Jodie presents an energetic approach with a wonderful positive attitude who is a delight to welcome into our home to assist with the sale process. With persistence and determination, Therese and Jodie made the sale for us in what is a tough market at the moment. We were very satisfied with the end result an having Therese and her team as our sale agents has been a absolute pleasure.
