Sales Associate, Ray White Whitsunday
Originally from a small country town called Melbourne, Paul was introduced to the concept of management rights about 12 years ago and relocated along with his wife Zoe to the beautiful Whitsundays.
"People come here for a holiday & mate, I live here!"
The allure & beauty of the Whitsunday Islands and Airlie Beach, being the mainland gateway to one of the best aquatic playgrounds in the world, was the deciding factor to move to this popular tourism destination.
"Did I mention the temperature is also a bit warmer here in winter than Melbourne?"
Paul has a diverse career background working with some well known corporations and many of these encompass the importance of good customer service. Having managed McDonald's stores in Victoria, owning his own Vodafone dealership and running his own property business which involved the purchase, renovation & sale of period homes in suburban Melbourne over a 12 year period, he prides himself on the value of good customer service.
I will work with you and for you to try to obtain the best possible outcome with the sale or purchase of your property. I aim to keep the process as smooth as possible and I will keep you informed. You need to know what's going on and I won't make you feel that you have to chase me. I will stay in contact with you and keep you in the loop.
"Communication is important and a happy customer is a customer for life"
I am proud to be a part of the Ray White Whitsunday Team and we, together with you, will use our years of experience to achieve a satisfactory result.
If you are looking to buy property and to relocate to this beautiful location or perhaps just purchase an investment property or business I would be more than happy to offer my services.
I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the way Paul Skinner handled the sale of my mums home at Jubilee Pocket. Mum was on her own after dad passed away earlier this year and had to sell their home. Paul had a wonderful mix of professionalism, friendliness and caring in all his dealings with mum and that was greatly appreciated. We would happily recommend him to any-one in the future. Regards Joann Sinclair
Paul is very professional to deal with and didn't play any of the games that other real estate agents do and I felt he was always honest with me. Paul is not afraid to call a 'spade a spade' and because of that I felt a certain level of trust. I would use him again in the future if I were to consider purchasing another property. Thanks.
Recently Paul Skinner from the sales team with Ray White Whitsundays sold my property on my behalf at a time when property sales within the region were stagnant. I found Paul at all times to act in a professional manor, be approachable and contactable at all times. Communication between myself, Paul and the buyer was fantastic and the sale of my property was uncomplicated. Paul had good foresight into the property market and was up to date with current property movements and predictions within the Whitsundays. I felt I could trust Paul and the sound advice he provided and I believe at all times Paul acted within my best interest as evident by supporting my request to minimise expenses which he was able to do nicely. Due to Pauls integrity, honesty and open book approach I have no hesitation recommending Paul as a sales representative to anyone wanting to sell their property.
We would like to thank Paul Skinner for Ray White for making the purchase of our new home in Cannonvale a very enjoyable and easy process and would highly recommend Paul for anyone looking to sell their property in the Airlie Beach, Cannonvale and surrounding suburbs.

I would like to thank the team at Ray White Whitsunday for their professional and friendly assistance whilst managing a rental property for us in Cannonvale. The property Management team was always proactive, helpful and attentive. I would recommend Ray White Whitsunday to anybody considering entering the rental market. We have also had the pleasure of dealing with the sales team at Ray White Whitsunday, in particular, Property Sales Consultant Paul Skinner. We live in Victoria which meant we had to put all our faith and trust in the agent we chose to sell our property in Queensland. Paul went above and beyond what we expected of a real estate agent. He always kept us updated on the progress of viewings, giving us honest feedback and making helpful suggestions. Paul is extremely knowledgeable in all things real estate and especially the Whitsunday property market. If you are looking to sell your property or need a fresh approach to your current property sale, I highly recommend Paul and the team at Ray White Whitsunday. Thank you most sincerely guys,
My husband and I brought a property in Jubilee Pocket recently and Paul bent over backwards for us every step of the way. He is a true professional and has a brilliant personality to suit his career in selling. Also has a great sense of humour. We would highly recommend Paul to sell any property. Once again a pleasure to do business with.

Dear Paul, We are so glad we had you as our agent as you were always happy to answer any of our questions even when we called you on the worst days possible. You were so reassuring throughout the whole sales process. Not only were you helpful but always up for a laugh and definitely a chat. I also really appreciated you introducing me to a couple of the neighbours. This was a great icebreaker and made us feel even more welcome in our first home. Thank you so very much for everything!

We had been trying to sell our property for quite a while and had tried many agents with no success. This was frustrating and expensive. I finally went to Paul Skinner at Ray White. I told him exactly what I wanted. "Sell my house for the price I want, don't waste my time with tyre kickers and I'm not spending a fortune on advertising" He did just that!

To Whom it may Concern, We recently sold our House with Paul Skinner in Jubilee Pocket Airlie Beach. Exactly a year earlier we tried with several agents to sell with promises at the start of the campaign of prices that at first sounded good but were never reached. i found these agents weren't being honest and realistic but in reality were just saying what we wanted to hear to get our signature. I have to say Paul Skinner was the complete opposite from the get go. He was open and honest with what he thought was a fair and achievable price in which we reached in a matter of weeks. I put this down to his excellent knowledge of the market and area as well as his Diligent & Astute work ethic. Also Paul's friendly and Humorous nature is very refreshing in a time which could be very stressful when selling a home. i would highly recommend selling a home with Paul and hope to do business with him again.

We had the pleasure of engaging Paul Skinner of Ray White Whitsundays in the task of selling our family home. A task that we feared would be an emotionally daunting one, turned into a positive experience beyond what we though possible. Paul's knowledge of the local current market and his ability to educate me in the best options for selling, set my mind at ease immediately. Paul's advise and encouragement in preparing for our sales campaign was also most helpful and appreciated. What a sucess story ours turned out to be. Even in a very tough market, we had a contract 2 weeks into the campaign and had sold within the month. Our sale price exceeded my highest expectations. Paul's ability to be a great communicator with both buyer and seller, I believe, was the magic ingredient required to achieve this great outcome.

To Whom It May Concern: I Diana Lawlor I'm writing this letter as a form of feedback on one of your agents that represents your company, his name is Paul Skinner. My husband and I have nothing but praise for Paul. Firstly I would like to inform you of a bit of back ground on our experience. We were in a situation where we had to plan to sell our family business, that we had run for over 13 years. Due to health issues my husband had to retire from the workforce. We were recommended to try a Business broker in Mackay, which unfortunately was the worst experience we have ever had dealing with another business. The whole experience left us totally stunned. Then to our great fortune we came in contact with Paul Skinner what a blessing that turned out to be. With his help and understanding of our situation he organized a plan for us to advertise our family business ASAP. Through his organising, reliability and commitment, we have now successfully sold our business, which in this economic climate is a challenge by its self. The one thing that we really appreciated was his consistent SUPPORT through updates on informing us if he was going to be unavailable and who would be available to fill in for him if something came up. Paul had certainly worked hard for his commission in this sale, which wasn't a huge amount but it didn't stop him from doing his best for us, which we truly appreciat

Having sold numerous properties over the years I have no hesitation in recommending Paul Skinner as an agent. In a very challenging market he was able to secure a relatively quick sale at a competitive price. He is friendly, courteous but most important of all responsive to any and all questions and enquiries that are part of all sales negotiations.
Dear Paul, We could truly not fault your professionalism and the attention that you gave to the promotion and hence selling of our house. It was wonderful to hand it all over to you and know that you had our best interests at heart and an unflagging desire to please. Your attention to detail, your enthusiasm, honest assessments and continuous feedback kept us buoyant and enthused in what was a very difficult time for real estate in Airlie Beach. We had previous dealings with another real estate office and could not compare, we cannot thank you enough and would most certainly recommend you to buyers and sellers alike without hesitation.
"Hi Paul, I would just like to express my thanks for the extra effort you went to in getting my unit sold. As you know I was extremely keen to sell quickly so that I could relocate overseas. Even though we had a contract initially fall over due to a finance clause you were always positive & reassured me that you would find a buyer. You were true to your word and ended up selling my unit for more than the listed price. You were always a pleasure to deal with and extremely knowledgeable about the property market. The service you provided was outstanding in all areas and I was thrilled with the final sale result. Thanks again Paul for all your hard work. It is very much appreciated."

Hello Paul, First I would like to say thank you for making the process of buying my first block of land and the building of my house very enjoyable and stress free. The time and effort you put in showing me a lot of different properties around the area was priceless, you made a stressfull process very enjoyable I will have no hesitation recommending you to friend's in the future and coming back to you myself. Thank You
We recently purchased a twin key apartment in a holiday let through Paul. His friendly and professional approach with our purchase, gave us confidence to proceed with the property. Paul answered all our questions with honesty and if he was not sure of something we asked, he made further enquiries on our behalf. His sense of humour made us feel relaxed in our dealings with him, whilst at the same time, his knowledge of the property and the financials of the investment, gave us confidence to go to contract. He followed up on the sale at every stage and we would have no hesitation in recommending Paul to friends, Infact, we did and Paul is now handling the listing.
