Left no stone unturned. Paul helped us find our forever home 3 years ago. So when it was time to find a house for Mum we contacted Paul. He approached many homes that weren't on the market that we liked, and nothing was a problem. Paul has always lived in the area and is well respected by the community for his knowledge and experience. We felt confident that he was the right agent for my Mum.
Christine, Steve & Roby - Cooran Buyers

Stephen & Monique - Black Mountain Sellers
"Very easy to work with and a great team at Hinterland Realty"
"Where do you start, from the start you get the feeling that your property that they are selling for you is the best and they really want to sell it and you are not just another sale for them, and they make you feel at home with what you are doing. The sales person we had Jeanette was just the nicest sales person that we haven’t ever had to deal with she kept us totally informed of everything along the way and made selling a very good experience"
John - Kin Kin Seller
"Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value"

Jon - Tenant
"We chose Hinternoosa based on their excellent local reputation. Sheridan was helpful and very professional from the start. Our home sold at the first open home; a standout result for all. We highly recommend Sheridan and Hinternoosa for outstanding service. Thanks!"
Peter & Cheryl - Belli Park Sellers
“The daunting task of having to sell my home was made effort free by Kess, Graham and Heather. They kept me fully informed during the entire procedure. The entire staff of Hinternoosa were a pleasure to deal with. Thank you all.”
Carole - Tinbeerwah Seller
"Kess has the innate skills to facilitate a clear, comfortable path through the potential emotional minefield of selling in an uncertain market. Her friendly approach is backed by exceptional attention to detail and well considered feedback. At all stages of the sales process from preparation of the property to open for inspections we felt listened to and reassured. Her clear commitment to her sellers and to those who buy a home with her help should be considered gold standard in this industry."
Anna - Cooroy Seller
"Kess is the best! We met Kess at several open homes when looking to purchase a property and decided she was definitely the agent we would use when it came time to sell our home. Her extensive knowledge and experience of the Noosa Hinterland market ensured an accurate appraisal of our property and we were happy with both the price we got and the time on the market. Kess has a great team she works with including Graham Smith, who was integral in securing our sale and Heather, her friendly and extremely efficient PA. She also has a fabulous list of contacts to assist in providing advice or help in getting your home 'market ready' , from interior design consultants to landscapers and she knows exactly what is needed to provide the best result. Kess is knowledgeable, professional, focused and has a lovely friendly personality too. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their property."
Stuart & Vicki - Doonan Sellers
"Mario, Now that the dust has settled on our move to our new home, we would like to thank both Jeanette and yourself for your efforts in marketing our property. We found your care, enthusiasm and persistence very comforting throughout the process. We really appreciated the candid and honest discussion and believe this led to a successful sale. We already miss the wonderful lifestyle of the Noosa hinterland!"
Bill & Harumi - Eumundi Sellers
"We could not have asked for better service and communication from Sheridan. She was amazing, got us our price with no hesitation. Honest and true. Would totally recommend you to anyone buying or selling."
Robyn & Geoffrey - Eerwah Vale Sellers
"We had the pleasure of having Drew Fenton from the Hinternoosa Real Estate agency act as our agent for the sale of our Pomona property. As sellers, we wanted an agent who possessed certain qualities that would make the selling process as smooth as possible. As is the case with most sellers, you appreciate being kept in the loop and enjoy feedback from your agent after open homes and inspections. Drew is a high level communicator with exceptional personable skills with a focus on the best outcome for his client. Drew was extremely professional, committed and thorough through all aspects of the sale process. Most importantly to us, he was hungry for the sale and was tenacious in attitude and effort when particular details had to be negotiated between seller and buyer. We are very happy with the outcome of our property sale and highly recommend the services Drew provides if you are considering selling your property."
Cathie & Rod - Pomona Sellers
"Kess and the Hinternoosa team sold our house withing two days of it being listed! This happened because they stretched us to make our house irresistible. They pushed us like no other agent would to get a result no other agent could. If you want your house sold – think Hinternoosa!"
Daniel & Sonja - Doonan Sellers
“It has been a pleasure dealing with Jeanette Catalano. Jeanette kept us informed and encouraged at every stage. If I ever have to do this again I would go back to Jeanette!”
Janet - Lake Macdonald Seller
"Hinternoosa was very friendly, helpful and professional. We felt comfortable and confident dealing with them. Would highly recommend Hinternoosa to friends and family."
Ian & Tara - Eumundi Buyers
"I found all members of the Hinternoosa team very pleasant to deal with. They were always professional, never pushy. The fact that they sold my house very quickly demonstrated their accuracy in the original appraisal and excellent knowledge of the market."
Glenyss - Pinbarren Seller
“I have previously offered comment on their excellent support provided to us by Hinternoosa. Paul Bielby was very pleasant, courteous and helpful. Even though he was ‘working for’ the vendor, he made us feel as if he had our best interests at heart as well. My compliments to Paul and I would highly recommend him as an estate agent.”
Greg - Cooroy Buyer
"It was a hard decision to sell our home, but Graham and the team made the whole experience a delight! Thank you! Communication was always forth coming, we were never left wondering what was happening. The whole team were so helpful whenever we had a question, nothing was ever too much trouble. Without a doubt we will recommend you to everyone we know. Thanks again, Tim and Kerry"
Tim & Kerry - Pomona Sellers
"I feel Paul had our interests at heart." "I have had a great deal of trust in Paul."
Doug & Yolande - Cooran Sellers
"We recently bought a house and sold another through Hinternoosa and found the team (Kess, Graham, Heather) professional, cheerful, capable and efficient. The whole process of buying and selling a property was handled smoothly by Hinternoosa's friendly, helpful team. We were kept in the loop at all points and nothing was too much trouble. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hinternoosa."
Jackie & Barry - Cooroy Buyers
"We found Paul and the team from Hinternoosa were very approachable and easy to converse with regarding the purchase of our new home in Pomona. We very much appreciated Paul’s clear, helpful and friendly communications during the buying process. Many Thanks!"
Shauna - Pomona Buyer
"Working with Kess, Graham and Heather has been a joy. They have been positive and proactive always putting my needs first. I thoroughly recommend their professionalism and competency."
Kay - Ridgewood Seller
"Sue and I were very pleased with the assistance provided to us by Hinternoosa throughout the selling process. Supporting staff were efficient and polite. Kess and Graham were most professional and supportive of our needs and we feel that we developed a close relationship with them. We would certainly recommend Hinternoosa to other sellers and we are now looking for support from Hinternoosa as we seek to buy our new home."
Greg & Sue - Tinbeerwah Sellers
"It is with great pleasure to provide this reference for Jeanette Catalano and Mario Catalano. Jeanette and Mario were recently involved in the sale of our property in Cooroy. We had made contact with Jeanette a year earlier but at that stage were unable to proceed. However in February 2019 we again contacted her for an appraisal and request to list the property. Jeanette’s positive can do attitude really impressed us and when preparing the contract for sale her professional manner and her clear and concise advice of what to expect and how to market the property appealed to us. She also listened to our concerns and ideas and I think together we made a great team. Even before the property was formally listed she had an interested person as did Mario so that we had had two inspections before advertising. Once home opens begun again she provided us with regular updates as well as a midweek update. Jeanette and Mario are a team that work well with their clients and if Jeanette was delayed or had other matters to deal with Mario continued the professional manner in which the home opens and other inspections were conducted. Our property sold just 30 days after listing and we attribute that to the dedication Jeanette and Mario had to achieving the best possible outcome for us. She answered all my enquires and guided us through the sale and settlement period effortlessly and I believe couldn’t have anything to improve our experience. Thank you Jeanette and Mario for a job well done."
John & Lies - Cooroy Sellers
"Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust" | "Finding an agent you have FAITH in is the key to a successful real estate venture. Kess Prior had our TRUST from the get go. We invited her to view our property, accepted her qualified advice regarding the marketing program and allowed her to steer us through the process of selling our family home. It is not necessarily a smooth or seamless process (there can be ups and downs and twists and turns along the way) but with Kess, you can be assured of a diligent and dedicated, professional yet personal approach to all that is involved in a real estate campaign. In her partnership with Graham Smith (and brilliant PA, Heather Ward) we felt that we were in very capable hands and their positive energy is manifested in persistent, engaging, skilled and genuine interaction. The integrity of the team at Hinternoosa is something we appreciated when it came to negotiating our property’s sale. And the PIXIE DUST… well, you just need plenty of that to sprinkle around before every inspection and hope for the best. Thanks Kess, Graham and Hinternoosa… we have no hesitation in recommending your agency to anyone in the market to buy or sell real estate."
Margie & Wayne - Black Mountain Sellers
"Thank you Kess and Graham. Great Job! Very much appreciate the time you have put into this campaign."
Jen - Eumundi Seller
"Choosing the right agent to sell your home can be a daunting process but once we met Sheridan, we knew she was exactly what we were looking for. Sheridan made everything stress-free with her kind and calm nature. She was always there to answer any questions and always with a smile. Sheridan’s genuine dedication made everything easy. We would certainly recommend her to sell your property also."
Rory & Jules - Cooroy Sellers
"After researching agencies and agents, we settled on Hinternoosa and Jeanette in particular. We have nothing but praise for her professionalism, honesty and approach ability. Everything was clear explained and adhered to; her advice was very helpful to us in our decision making. It was an exciting experience and helped us sell our house in almost no time at all. Thanks Jeanette, you are a legend."
John & Lis - Cooroy Sellers
"We were extremely pleased with the service we received from Hinternoosa (Jeanette & Mario) during the purchase of our property at Cooroy. They were extremely helpful and went the 'extra mile' to assist us with any enquiries we had with regard to the purchase. We would certainly recommend Hinternoosa to anyone purchasing a property."
Ken & Joan - Cooroy Buyers
"From start to finish Jeanette & Mario have been extremely helpful in all stages of our recent house purchase. Easy to contact and very responsive to both email and texts they guided us through the whole process in a very professional manner. It has been a pleasure to deal with such friendly, understanding agents. We highly recommend Jeanette and Mario and Hinternoosa to anyone thinking of buying or selling in the local area."
Maureen & Chris - Pomona Buyers
"The time came for a decision to be made to downsize our home after 30 years living on Black Mountain, Cooroy’s Hinterland. We approached Kess Prior of Hinternoosa who soon was committed in helping, not only in selling our property but going to great lengths with her honesty and professional knowledge in making our property 'dressed to impress'. Yes it did impress and it wasn’t long before it was sold and Kess was with us all the way with her caring and friendship. The team at hinternoosa are all very confident and professional, making our future plans so much easier for our family. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Kess to our family and friends. Thank you Kess and Team."
Chris, Sue & Clinton - Black Mountain Sellers
"Graham is a FANTASTIC Agent" | "Over the past year I have been impressed by Graham's honesty and professional approach to not only business but on a personal and friendly manner. I first got to know Graham through a beautiful home he had listed on the internet that I wanted to purchase, sadly it was sold due to Grahams efforts for the owners. As we have never met in person, I feel a warmth. Graham Smith is a man of his word, as am I. It’s a pity all agents I have dealt with over many years could not be 50% of this fine person."
Rod - Tewantin Seller
To Jeanette and Mario - Trish and I both thank you for all your efforts re. selling our property at Pine Tree Drive. You both showed extra appreciated effort above the line of duty not seen ever before. Happy Future, Daryl & Trish.
Daryl & Trish - Lake Macdonald Sellers
"Graham was a delight to deal with from the moment I met him. Nothing was too much trouble and he was a great interface between the vendor and myself. He kept me well informed along the way and has great communication skills and was always a pleasure to deal with. He always got back to me in a very responsive manner to any of the queries that i had regarding the property that I was purchasing. I have no hesitation in recommending Graham to any prospective buyer or seller."
Paul - Tewantin Buyer
"What can I say but, they are the best real estate I have dealt with. Having to sell my mother’s house quickly it was wonderful to have Jeanette, as she was fantastic, very helpful, kept in touch with me regularly, and really put time and effort into selling the house. Jeanette was also very compassionate, and understanding, and I would recommend her to anyone. It’s more like dealing with a friend as Jeanette made it so easy, as well as being honest, professional and putting her clients best interests first. It was a wonderful experience having Jeanette help me through a tough time when the world out there can be harsh. Thankyou Jeanette & Crew."
Anne - Cooroy Seller
"Graham Smith was a very professional agent, fully highlighting the good points of the property and disclosed the not so good points. His professionalism was important to us as we were purchasing our first 50 Acre property to use as a horse stud. Graham negotiated fairly and gave us a starting point that was reasonable to negotiate with the owners. We are very happy with our purchase and would definitely use Graham again and recommend him."
Eileen & Niall - Cooroy Mountain Buyers
"Graham was an absolute pleasure to deal with, graham always returned my calls straight way, always followed up on all my queries and made buying our house very easy. We would highly recommend graham and will continue to use him!"
Mathew & Ashlee - Eumundi Buyers
"Jeanette from Hinternoosa was friendly, helpful and professional from day 1. I would recommend her highly. My settlement went smoothly and now I have a Noosa real estate agent and local contact I can trust for any future real estate ventures."
Meg - Black Mountain Buyer
"We originally met Jeanette at an open house some years ago and at that time were impressed with the way she dealt with us and other customers, so when we decided to sell our home in Cooroy, we approached her to help. Jeanette, with the help of her husband Mario, proved to be an excellent team and handled all inspections and negotiations very professionally. We were more than happy with the short time frame that it took for us to sell as well as the price that was achieved. If you need a down to earth, no nonsense, professional agent then we would thoroughly recommend Jeanette and Mario at Hinternoosa in Cooroy. Thanks again to you and Mario for your help Jeanette. With Kind Regards, Greg and Maureen.
Greg & Maureen - Cooroy Sellers
"After having the pleasure of dealing with Kess Prior at Hinternoosa, my husband and I would like to thank her for all the help given to us. She was very friendly and professional, we would recommend Hinternoosa. A big THANKYOU."
Peter & Sandra - Cooroy Sellers
"We originally met Jeanette Catalano at an open house some years ago and at that time were impressed with the way she dealt with us and other customers, so when we decided to sell our home in Cooroy, we approached her to help. Jeanette, with the help of her husband Mario, proved to be an excellent team and handled all inspections and negotiations very professionally.

If you need a down to earth, no nonsense, professional agent then we would thoroughly recommend Jeanette and Mario at Hinternoosa in Cooroy."
Greg - Cooroy Seller
"We recently engaged Jeanette Catalano to sell our house in Black Mountain. We had met Jeanette a few years previously when we were looking at properties to buy in the area. She had immediately struck us as friendly, organised, sensible and honest. Our initial impressions were borne out. When it came to selling our house, her appraisal and advice were spot on. We sold at auction for a good price, with no hassle or delay. We would wholeheartedly recommend her - and her supportive team at Hinternoosa - to anyone selling in the Noosa hinterland."
Jo & Jo - Black Mountain Sellers
"I found Kess and her team very professional in every way with regard to resent property sale. Kess would communicate with me, without me prompting her and her market knowledge and understanding of the area was amazing and lead to a good negotiating skills to offer me a good deal for my property, and with all this written about Kess and her team, I would highly recommend my family and friends to contact Kess to buy or sale a property. Thanks Kess you were incredible."
Kelly - Ridgewood Seller
"We said it before, and say it again; whether you buy or sell or rent, Hinternoosa is the only address you need to know. It is the one stop shop for anything real estate and perfection and total commitment is the norm. Jeanette and Mario know their game and you will get the best results every time! We know as we are repeat, repeat, repeat customers. Thankyou, Hans & Maggie."
Hans & Maggie - Cooroy Sellers
"Thank you so much! Especially Jeanette, Mario & all the staff for your attention to us and selling our property. We received such courteous and personal attention during the process of selling two properties that we have already and will certainly recommend Hinternoosa to anyone buying or selling their property."
Kathleen, Douglas & Evan - Cooroy Sellers
"Thank you Graham for your comprehensive knowledge of the market, for your marketing strategy and for the outstanding sales result. Our property of 35 acres sold a week after first being advertised and for a very good price. The sale was not without it's complications, but Graham's professionalism and warm and communicative approach to both buyer and seller resulted in a great win/win."
Ray & Judy - Verrierdale Sellers
"Despite owning a sensational large acreage property, it was a difficult sell. An oversized hobby farm could be one description. The combination of a modern contemporary architecturally designed home together with medium to large acreage and equestrian facilities meant that there were very few buyers for exactly what was on offer. We had tried another very good agent for twelve months beforehand but we felt something was missing. Such a large house and property has many moving parts and as such many positives but some negatives. Graham was able to placate buyer concern on these with much professionalism. From day one we felt confident that Graham would sell our property. Graham encouraged us to get our own valuation and at no stage did he apply any pressure to lower our target price. Graham has an uncanny ability to assess any buyer type, and has a likeable, affable demeanour that fits with a wide spectrum of buyers. He has an "antenna" for the truth or otherwise when it comes to buyer comments. He acts quickly when necessary and left no stone unturned when a buyer showed a mere flicker of interest. Feedback and communication was the best we have experienced in the several property sales we have endured. Graham Smith at Hinternoosa is all class. Experienced and confident, yet he certainly is not one of those "annoying" pushy agents. Grace under pressure is another description of his modus operandi. We had more than a couple of difficult situations arise from external events and Graham took them in his stride, humoured us and calmed our farm. Graham sold our property in just a few months despite a minimal marketing budget. We would not hesitate in recommending Graham for selling or buying any type of property."
Michael & Sarah - North Arm Sellers
"We can highly recommend Graham Smith. We had been looking for an investment property for a while, and Graham found exactly what we were looking for. Great communication throughout the whole process; everything went like clockwork from our first inspection right through to settlement. Would definitely use him again."
Roger - Eumundi Buyer
"We are writing to express our sincere gratitude for your assistance in purchasing our new home in the Noosa hinterland. You made the whole process smooth and relatively painless with your high level of communication with us at all times. You listened carefully to our needs with this new property, addressed our concerns diligently and made the purchase go smoothly. We wish to thank you for your efforts Graham in bringing this beautiful country home a reality for us. We appreciated and enjoyed doing business with you and would not hesitate in recommending you."
Warren & Gavin - Cooroy Mountain Buyers
"Graham Smith of Hinternoosa was outstanding in his efforts to sell our apartment in Noosa Parade. We made it difficult for Graham by requesting a minimal marketing budget, but with much persistence he located potential buyers and sold the property in the price range we were seeking. His feedback on the selling process was excellent and Graham is a delightful person to work with and certainly a person who can be highly trusted to do his best for you. We thoroughly recommend Graham and Hinternoosa to those buying or selling property."
Rob & Enid - Noosa Heads Sellers
"Graham was an absolute delight to deal with - we couldn't fault him! We sold our Eumundi property through him and bought our new property in Tinbeerwah through Graham. Thank you and kind regards, Jennifer & Michael."
Jennifer & Michael - Eumundi Sellers
"We have been building, buying and renovating real estate for 50 years and during this time we have been associated with many real estate agents. The experience we have had over these years has in the main been harrowing with many of our requests going unanswered and we providing most of the go-forward marketing proposals and ideas. This sale has been different, Graham Smith with his wealth of real estate experience and his professional acumen has made this campaign exciting and far from the dreaded " selling blues" often experienced. He provided: . Marketing with a time and budget plan, which was strictly adhered to. . Followed up every lead and reported back to us almost daily advising the progress of any earlier leads. . Provided a written report weekly formalising discussions with clients together with a reminder of upcoming advertising or Open Home Inspections. . He made himself available for private inspections at any time or day of the week as required. . Did not pressure us to reduce the asking price when enquiries slowed down. We did reduce the asking price once at our request. . With the help of the back-up team at Hinternoosa he provided us with professional services for photography, videos etc necessary to lift the standard of the advertising and maximise desire. Graham has an affable personality and product knowledge who easily gained the respect of prospective buyers. His positive approach at our meetings made us confident that should a good prospect appear he would not let them off the hook until the flame flickered to an end. "
Allan & Eve - Cooroibah Sellers
"Graham Smith was an outstanding Agent. We found Graham to be totally professional, supportive and a thoroughly good human being, blessed with integrity, patience and mindful of both the sellers and buyer's wishes which resulted in a successful outcome for both parties."
Carol - Cooroy Mountain Seller
"Graham was a professional and honest Agent. Having dealt with many agents in our research and then purchase of property in Qld we found Graham to be the most old school professional. Buying from another state can be a challenge which some agents we found just couldn't be bothered with. However Graham provided prompt service, he always got back to us and followed up all our questions and hence made the sale. Graham provided good after sale service for us too. We would highly recommend him and would certainly use him again. Thank you Graham."
Natalie - Noosa Heads Buyer
"We required an agent that was patient and sincere in their effort to collaborate with us, in the search for the perfect Noosa Hinterland home for our family. From our first introduction over two years ago, Graham proved to be the agent we could trust as we articulated our needs, which were met with understanding and a clear commitment to playing the long game with us. Graham's wholehearted approach is met with clear industry experience and open consultancy. Our collaborative relationship allowed us to feel comfortable asking questions, which was always complemented with tenacious answers and transparency. Beyond his outstanding service standards and good humour, Graham was calculated, purposeful and razor sharp in our contract negotiations. For an industry specialist with a passion for listening, building relationships, and delivering on promises, we are very pleased to recommend Graham Smith without reservation."
Talia - Eumundi Buyer
"We were very satisfied with the way in which Hinternoosa handled the sale of our property in Belli Park. Graham Smith was professional, informative and kept us fully informed during the process of the sale."
Mike - Belli Park Seller
"My recent home purchase with Hinternoosa was a stress free and positive experience. Jeanette and Mario provided friendly professional attention to all details and requirements. I really appreciated their availability and communication. Information regarding community services and trades was also helpful. I would be happy to recommend and use them for any real estate business in the future. Thank you to all the team. Regards, Gillian."
Gillian - Cooroy Buyer
"Our house was sold to the third person who came to see it. Graham Smith was very helpful and always kept us informed as to viewing progress. We received prompt feedback after each viewing and we were generally pleased with the service received from Hinternoosa."
Michael & Vicky - Belli Park Sellers
"Jeanette & Mario were excellent to deal with from day one through to settlement. They kept us fully informed at all times and their professionalism and honesty was very much appreciated by Cathryn and myself."
Derek & Cathryn - Cooroy Sellers
"Warm, Enthusiastic, Prompt & Efficient" | We Just wanted to say a sincere thankyou on the sale of our home. Your warm personality & enthusiasm impressed us from the start. You kept us updated throughout the process & always answered our queries promptly & efficiently. Thanks again for the hard work.
Susan & Denis - Doonan Sellers
"Personable, Knowledgeable, Calm, Professional and Well Presented" | As always Kess has been simply brilliant. All questions and requests are answered correctly and in a timely manner. The office support staff are efficient and courteous. Kess is personable, knowledgeable, calm, professional and well presented. Whenever possible I would choose to have Kess represent us in any property transaction.
Jenny & David - Eumundi Buyers
"Thank You All" | We have been pleased with the way Jeanette & Hinternoosa have managed our sale & thank you all.
Jim & Fran - Cooroy Sellers
"Guided us on a very stress free purchase!" | Our Chance meeting with Kess sealed our fate. She understood exactly what we were after and helped us find our dream home! Thank you so much Kess for helping us understand the house buying process and guiding us on a very stress free purchase!
Mark & Jo - Eumundi Buyers
"A very special thank you" | Sufficient time has passed since the sale of our home of 12 years at 26 Capricorn Court, Eumundi to enable us to now reflect with objectivity. “Downsizing” is sobering as you confront the reality of your mortality and acknowledge that you are no longer as capable as you once were. Against this background, preparing your precious home for sale while purchasing another to fulfil the next stage of your life as well as determining how to remove your possessions to that next home are major confrontations experienced simultaneously – there is no respite. Added to all of this reality is the anxiety of will your home sell and how close to what you expect or need your buyer will pay. It is a time almost unparalled in one’s life for the high level of emotion. So Mary and I felt blessed to have met and then engaged Graham Smith at Hinternoosa for our sale. We had faith in Hinternoosa and even greater faith in Graham – both were well-founded. Graham is sophisticated, honest and frank but who has a demeanour which encourages belief in him. He read our needs expertly and one Saturday afternoon during our campaign, asked, with his customary politeness, if he could call in. It was a visit to go through where we were, what to expect – it was a visit to inform us, to reassure us. It was so timely and so valuable, just what and when we needed. The rest is history. Our auction felt like a Capricorn Court street party and, the following Monday, our buyers inspected and bought. To you both and your great team, a very special thank you for the sale of our home and for Graham for his professionalism and his quality – we have made a new friend.
Mary & Sam - Eumundi Sellers
"Professional and Extremely Competent" | We found Kess to be very professional and extremely competent in selling our property. She was quick in finding suitable purchases and the whole process went very smoothly. Thanks Kess.
Paul - Eumundi Seller
"very good to deal with" | We have dealt with Graham Smith on a number of occasions & have found him to be very good to deal with. His attitude, honesty & professionalism is refreshing. Graham works very hard for his clients to get the best results.
Rhonda & Rolly - Tewantin Sellers
"made the process of buying a pleasure" | Coming from Sydney, we have been pleasantly surprised by the real estate agents we have dealt with here in Queensland and Graham has stood out even among those. My father-in-law passed away while we were house hunting, at such a difficult time Graham was sympathetic and kind. He truly has made the process of buying a pleasure. We are more than happy to recommend his services to anyone.
Gillian & Tony - Tewantin Buyers
"efficient and professional" | Kess Prior handled the sale of our property in a very efficient and professional manner. Always very direct and honest in her comments and analysis following open house & inspections etc. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kess & Hinternoosa to anyone considering selling or buying real estate in this area.
Peter - Tinbeerwah Seller

"Sale achieved in depressed acreage market" | Graham held our hands through the buyer attraction, negotiation, and conclusion phases in a friendly and professional manner. He is an excellent communicator. We strongly recommend him.
Otto & Jocelyn - Cooroy Sellers
"Selling my home turned out to be a wonderful experience" | Selling my home turned out to be a wonderful experience. When I first thought of selling I managed to contact Jeanette while she was on holiday! She answered all my questions and before I knew it I had signed up to sell. Before marketing had even begun and 3 days later I had sold. I believe this was some sort of record – both time and price wise. I couldn’t speak highly enough of both Mario and Jeanette!!
Virginia - Cooroy Seller
"Open And Frank.. Professional Approach" | We met Kess at an open house. Her open and frank approach decided us on using Hinternoosa to sell our property. The professional approach of Kess and her organisation constantly confirmed to us the correctness of the decision. Within 4 weeks our house was sold at a figure well above the one quoted by other agencies. Within a day we were in a position to purchase another property suited to our specification. Both of these transactions were a tribute to Kess and her organisation and their attention to our requirements. Each of us would both be happy to confirm these thoughts to anyone who asked us for an opinion.
Merv & Janey - Sellers
"The process was smoother and easier than I anticipated thanks to Jeanette" | I had a vacant block of land that I had held for over 10 years that I wanted to sell. I live interstate and needed an agent I could trust. The first agent was very honest and upfront with me after he viewed the block and told me it would be very hard to sell and he wasn’t interested. I then contacted Jeanette from Hinternoosa. She was more optimistic and gave me a realistic valuation based on its zoning and level or overgrowth. Jeanette provided me with a quote explaining all the advertising she would conduct which was very reasonable. She suggested improvements that I could make to improve its appeal and recommended a local earthmoving company to do the work at a very reasonable cost. Jeanette organised the photographer to take shots for advertising purposes and it went on real estate.com. Within two weeks there was an offer on the table. All thoughout the process Jeanette was extremely helpful and informative particularly in regards to the hinternoosa area in which she has remarkable knowledge. After the offer was accepted Jeanette referred two local law agencies to handle the settlement details and Conveyancing. All in all the process was smoother and easier than I anticipated thanks to Jeanettes knowledge and contacts. Quotation / Preliminary Information – easy to read and understand and pricing was upfront and clearly indicated. 10/10 Communication – Excellent – Jeanette emailed and phoned me whenever any new information became available. I always felt like I knew what was happening. 10/10 Manner – Jeanette is very friendly and helpful and I always felt that she had my best interests in mind and not just concerned about getting her commission. She was never pushy and always allowed me adequate time to make my decisions. – 10/10 After Sales Service – Jeanette phoned me on the day of settlement to congratulate me on the sale. A letter soon arrived with a refund for monies that had not been spent on advertising. Soon after that a bottle of champagne arrived at my house. I couldn’t recommend Jeanette enough for her friendliness, local knowledge, contacts and the manner in which she delivers her service. Thanks.

"honest, approachable, helpful" | "As we were new to the coast, we had no previous experience with an R.E. agent and meeting Kess for the first time was like meeting an old friend. She was honest, approachable, helpful and above all else, appeared interested in us – and our families’ needs and situation. I will always be grateful for finding our new home in North Arm and for finding Kess in the Process!"

“Enthusiasm, Understanding & Support” | What a pleasure it was working with Jeanette on the sale of my unit and purchase of a block of land.

Vicki - Buyer & Seller
“It is a pleasure to recommend Jeanette and the team” | It is a pleasure to recommend Jeanette and the team for a comfortable and assisted sale and purchase, which due to her personal and caring manner, made the entire exercise flow on with minimal effort on my part! I got the price reduced for the sale and the extra mile that Jeanette and husband went to assisting me into the house was remarkable! I felt like they were good friends rather than sales/property marketers! I have no hesitation in recommending hinternoosa, but more importantly Jeanette to anyone seeking honest, friendly and professional service! I hope you will be as happy as I am.

“very professional and kept us fully informed at all stages.” | We had spent the best part of a year looking for a property in or immediately adjacent to Cooroy that would be suitable for us as we entered the more senior ranks! Over that time we had different views as to what we wanted e.g. to build, to renovate, to upgrade etc. Jeanette was able to see through our muddled thinking and immediately showed us a property that would suit us admirably. We were lucky enough to purchase this property. Throughout the process Jeanette was very professional and kept us fully informed at all stages. We are very grateful for her perspicacity in working out what might suit us and her efforts to help us achieve our aim. We will be contacting her again once we are ready to sell our current house and move into a dotage home. Many thanks

“We finally bought the perfect home thanks to Kess ” | As a very stressed out house owner (living in Brisbane but working in Eumundi) it was surly a challenge for Kess Prior to keep me calm. She went with me the long and complicated way of a simultaneously settlement. She was always available and was always there for me and my family. We finally bought the perfect home and this is with big thanks for Kess and the entire team. The agency can surly be recommended to anyone. Thank you
Martina - Buyer
“Professional, communicated well and common sense suggestions” | We decided to use Kess Prior and her team at Hinternoosa after interviewing three other agents. Kess was professional, communicated well and gave common sense suggestions regarding how to present our mother's home for sale. She diplomatically suggested using a stylist after seeing what furniture we had available to present the home in the best light, this worked brilliantly and we had an offer that we accepted even before the first open day. I would not hesitate to recommend her to future sellers.
Jacky & Sally - Sellers
“completely satisfied” | The Hinternoosa marketing approach I have found to be beyond reproach. Kess Prior knows her business and relates fully to her clients requirements. How can you say more? When you are completely satisfied.
“service beyond expectations” | I found the service received from Kess Prior (Hinternoosa), and later all of her support team, to be beyond my expectations! I had MANY questions pre sale, and Kess professional answered all of them with integrity that continued throughout the process. As a result of Kess' proactive approach, our home was sold the day it went on the market. Then throughout the Settlement process, Kess and her team at Hinternoosa supported me whenever I had any queries. Then after Settlement we received a wonderful couple of personalised cards and a generous 'gift of celebration'. It was a smooth process, where I felt we were encouraged to ask questions if we had any (throughout!), and where we sensed the professional approach at Hinternoosa, had us in good hands. We also got the exact price we had asked for in selling our home through Hinternoosa. I would absolutely encourage you to engage Kess Prior/Hinternoosa if you are Selling or Purchasing property. Another huge THANK YOU to the team at Hinternoosa - especially Kess Prior
Dee - Seller
“extremely attentive, consultative and helpful" | we were very happy with the service provided by Hinternoosa when recently buying our new home in Eumundi. Kess Prior was extremely attentive, consultative and helpful and went over and above the levels of service provided by other agents we dealt with in the area
Phil & Rebecca - Eumundi Buyers
“such a pleasure dealing with someone so professional” | Dear Jeanette, Thank you very much for all that you have done for me. It was such a pleasure dealing with someone so professional. I now understand why Sue & Patsy highly recommended you after they purchased their homes. Hinternoosa should be very proud to have you as one of their agents. a job well done. thank you again.
“found the property of my dreams” | When I moved to the sunshine coast in 2007 it was Hinternoosa that found the property of my dreams. So of course when the next stage came, I turned to hinternoosa again to pass on that dream. I have to thank Kess for her availability and thoughtfulness during the process of discussion, preparation and negotiation, always looking to do the best for me! I look forward to another partnership with Hinternoosa to follow the next dream!

“thoroughly professional in presentation and demeanour” | We engaged Jeanette Catalano as our agent because we liked her friendly & no-nonsense personality.

Also Jeanette was personally supportive throughout the emotions that vendors experience during the inspection and sale process.
Paul & Adrienne - Sellers
“professional but down to earth” | To easy I couldn’t of asked for a better agent to deal with. I would not hesitate in recommending Jeanette Catalano to any of my friends or family if they ever have the need to purchase or sell in the Sunshine Coast region. She was totally professional but down to earth, very approachable and so easy to deal with, nothing was a problem a total pleasure. Thank you again Jeanette.
“very grateful” | From our first phone call Kess impressed us with her knowledge and her professionalism. This continued throughout the sale and when we had a “hiccup” we were very grateful for Kess’s help. Our “hiccup” was no fault of Hinternoosa and Kess’s help was much appreciated. Anyone who uses another agent aren’t getting the best they can get. Thanking you.
Chris & Dave
