A hardworking, approachable and friendly agent. Lorraine was thorough and amenable; with strong knowledge and understanding of the market place being additional positives. I am now residing in my new home and could not be more delighted. Thank you, Lorraine
Loraine had a definite plan to attract the right buyers. She is very professional in her approach, appearance and communications. Lorraine managed to find a buyer in a very short time for a price that was realistic. Other similar properties have been on the market for well over 12 months. Our settlement did not go soothly and Loraine set aside her own personal needs to ensure that, in the end, the settlement completed as scheduled. We could highly recommend Loraine as the right agent.

Consummate Professional. Through the entire selling process from start to finish, we found Lorraine to be exemplary in her market analysis and strategy. We were kept informed in a regular basis and were never left wandering at any stage. While a combination of many points saw a successful result, it was particularly advantageous having a strategy of freshening the advertising from week to week. Lorraine is a quintessential expert who gets results.

We purchased & sold an apartment through Lorraine Drysdale. We found Loraine very professional. As a company Director I have purchased & sold several properties Lorraine was the best real estate agent I can recommend Lorraine Drysdale as a real estate agent
Lorraine Drysdale is quite simply the epitome of agents. My wife Eileen and I have purchased many different properties worldwide having dealt with numerous grey sales agents. From the very beginning we both knew that Lorraine was a cut above. We were greeted with a warm and winning smile which exudes confidence only created from years of successful experience in the property market. Lorraine guided us through numerous options always communicating clearly and succinctly, such that we always knew exactly where we stood. She was always in our corner and when faced with a problem or challenge she tackled it head on. Lorraine held our hands through our entire process which was very complicated but we always knew she would solve any problems and ensure we got the best deal. We would highly recommend Lorraine to anyone buying or selling a property.
Lorraine was absolutely fantastic to work with. This was my first time selling a property and Lorraine took the time to explain the process as well as answer all my questions. She was there every step of the way going above and beyond to make my process run smoothly and as cost effective as possible. Lorraine managed the end of end sales process for me, giving me regular updates after each open house. The whole process was extremely smooth and painless. I had every confidence in Lorraine ability and dedication to garnering me the best result possible. I would recommend Lorraine (and already have) to anyone who is looking at selling or buying property!

Dear Lorraine I would like to thank you most sincerely for facilitating my recent purchase of an apartment at Salacia Waters, Paradise Point. From the first time I met you I felt we just "connected." Throughout the ups and downs of my purchase journey you were always available to answer my questions and solve problems as they arose. You were never too busy to return calls, emails or texts, which is a rarity in business these days. I had complete confidence in your expertise and professional experience but your wonderfully warm and caring personality is the attribute that shines through and I will always remember. You have the capacity to make you clients feel very special despite the enormous work load you undertake. Whether buying or selling I cannot give you any higher accolade than 'Simply the Best'! Wishing you health and happiness in the years ahead.
Our apartment was sold so fast it made our heads spin! From the time we signed with Lorraine, until we had a signed offer, took less than a week. The whole transaction was smooth and professional, and we certainly know who to contact for any future property deals. Thank you Lorraine!

Hi Lorraine, Just want to thank you so much for all your help in selling Mum and Dad’s unit. You were meant to walk pass that day we first met you. You made it such an easy process for us and we know all the work you put in to sell the unit, I am still amazed at the price you got for it. Again thank you so much for your understanding, compassion and making us feel so comfortable around you, Mum and Dad would definitely have approved.
Lorraine, thank you for your exceptional work ethic you have shown during the sale of our apartment. Your professional manner, expertise in real estate sales, constant updates of progress not only exceeded our expectations but you achieved a record price for our property in the area. Thank you for all your hard work, dedication, guidance and most of all for being an agent we could trust with the sale of our property. We look forward to a future with you to sell our other properties with many referrals for you to our friends and family looking to sell.

A heart felt Thanks to You and James for the dedication and professionalism you poured into achieving the Sale of Knightsbridge. We have had a vast range of Agents on various transactions over the Years, but all pale into the distance behind you.
Dear Lorraine, Before the end of the year catches up with me I am making an effort to action a few things that I have been meaning to do for some time and one of them is to thank you so much for your help in purchasing the unit at Salacia Waters. Judy and myself are very pleased with the way things worked out. Within two weeks of settlement we had a tenant in place at the rent that you suggested would be achieved. So; there you go, we now have a nice investment unit purchased at a good price and rented to a good tenant. Couldn’t real ask for much more. All the best for the coming festive season and thank you again for your help. Cheers,
John and Judy Griffiths
I want to thank Lorraine Drysdale at Ray White Sovereign Islands for exemplary service in selling my apartment in Salacia Waters for me. Right from the get-go Lorraine advised me on how to best present my apartment for sale and how to price, advertise and market it using her knowledge of the local market and Ray Whites suite of online and offline sales channels. Within days of placing the apartment on the market there were a stream of customers being shown the apartment. Lorraine was unfailingly professional, courteous, warm and polite, following up open houses and potential purchaser viewings with same day emails or telephone calls advising likely interest and next steps. This resulted in a quick and very satisfactory sale. Lorraine is without doubt a most capable real estate professional. I have been very fortunate to have her sell my property for me.

Re Purchase, 2203 Salacia Waters. Having recently completed my purchase of the above mentioned property I am writing to express my thanks and appreciation for the effort and professionalism that Loraine displayed during negotiations and subsequent purchase. As I work FI/FO, Lorraine went out of her way to keep me informed during the entire process, Lorraine attended to my every request without hesitation , considering the time zone difference , a lot of her work was well outside what would be considered normal office hours, I can I highly recommend Lorraine Drysdale to anyone considering purchasing or selling a property.
I recently purchased an apartment at Salacia Waters andI must admit it was made so easy when I was guided by a very professional saleslady Lorraine Drysdale. Lorraine is employed by the" Ray White Sovereign Island " agency, which I would recommend to all. Lorraine's happy nature and empathy for people was a pleasant surprise for what is the usual understanding of Real Estate sales people in general. The purchase of property is always an emotional and nervous decision but was made easy in this case with no surprises at all and the follow- up from Lorraine was excellent. I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to purchase property on the northern end of the Gold Coast, it's her area and she is competent and thorough.
Dear Lorraine, On behalf of Darryl and myself we would like to sincerely thank you for your professionalism, honesty, sincerity and advice in assisting us to sell our home at Hope Island and purchasing our new apartment at Ephraim Island, Paradise Point. We would never have even considered looking at Ephraim Island if it wasn't for your understanding of "us" and what we were looking for. That is the sign of a good real estate agent and the trust we developed in you. By the way we absolutely love it here! Your knowledge of real estate and law, couples with availability and communication basically 24/7, really took a lot of stress away from what can be a very stressful experience and we are extremely grateful to you for this. Lorraine, we have no hesitation in saying, in our opinion, "you're the best in the industry" and have and will continue to recommend you as such.
Denise and Darryl Fernance
Thank you Lorraine, for making our move from the Sunshine Coast to the Gold Coast such a pleasurable experience. While finally selling our home on the Sunshine Coast after nearly eighteen months we were feeling very disheartened with the whole real estate experience. This was until we came across you Lorraine and you showed us our beautiful apartment at Salacia Waters. We have never experienced dealing with an agent before who is not only so professional and knowledgeable in all areas, but also caring and friendly. Your genuine interest on our behalf and willingness to drop everything to assist us as clients was so very appreciated. We would never hesitate to recommend your services to others and would always contact you in the future for all our real estate needs. This whole experience has left us with a smile on our faces.
