Penny Wood Lane is a pleasure to deal with from buying our home to now renting it out. Paul Bryan and his team are at the top of their game when it comes to Real Estate in Mackay. I have never before dealt with a Real Estate Agency that has been so genuine, helpful and caring.

Paul Bryan is so approachable that we have had many a conversation with him about our property and his knowledge has been extremely valuable. I would definitely recommend Paul Bryan and Penny Wood Lane.

Paula Simcock

During a difficult situation of renting & the owner trying to sell, Paul was very respectful to the situations of both parties involved.
Easy to deal with & realistic to the situation.
Happy to go the extra yards for these guys.

Clayton Sawyer

Paul and Anna are pure professionals. Thank you for the high standards you hold when dealing with our properties. Once again you have achieved a fantastic result.

These guys really make the effort to understand what is important to you. They genuinely care, and always add that extra touch of class. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!

Liam Gaskin

We are very happy and grateful for the committed service provided by both Paul and Anna of Penny Wood Lane Real Estate. Paul’s strengths are his excellent communication skills, constant motivation and persistence when selling or managing a property. He is passionate about real estate and believes in providing an honest, entrepreneurial and personalised service for every client. Paul worked 7 days a week to ensure that the property we recently purchased was viewed by as many clients as possible. Paul spent over a hour (on two occasions) letting us Facetime the property (as we were in lockdown and unable to visit) so that we could ensure it was the right purchase for us.

Prior to this Paul had economically managed the update of the property (i.e. electrical, painting, solar hot water replacement, planting of garden etc) to ensure that it was ready for sale. The leasing was handled quickly, efficiently and seamlessly. With Paul’s assistance we were able to choose an excellent tenant from a choice of 14 and there was only a day between settlement and the tenants moving in. He also handled any additional maintenance (e.g. new keys, gates, personal spraying of bindis in grass etc) and extensively cleaned the property before it was tenanted.

Mention should also be made of Anna, Paul’s partner who expertly, efficiently and creatively handled the photography, financials and administration of their business. Thanks very much!

David and Kathy Carroll

On Moving from Bondi Beach I struggled to find a good agent/ sounding board who knew where to find value for money and great returns.

Paul and Anna’s insight has helped me to grow a portfolio of property that is showing good return, and their insight increased the rental & sale value.

Their knowledge of the industry whether property sales or management always delivers beyond expectations. The attention to detail is extraordinary and often the little things along with associated advice add value. One often feels like ignoring them but find advice to be deal clinchers

Mark Devin

I lived overseas for a number of years. I trusted my property in Australia to Penny Wood Lane’s management. My home was a touch unusual, not quite the norm and required a certain type of tenant. Penny Wood Lane promised to hunt for such a tenant which indeed they did.

They also sent me photos and reports from their regular inspections. They handled all the pest control, smoke alarms, insurance, specialised gardening etc that was required to maintain my home while I was away.

After the first year I simply forgot about worrying as Penny Wood Lane proved themselves, kept me happy, the tenant happy and the property maintained. They were also easy to work with and knowledgeable regarding market conditions and predictions. Very professional and caring. I felt valued.

MM Hall

Paul is a total sales professional, very attentive and helpful through the whole buying process.

He went out of his way after the property was settled by introducing tradesmen for our renovations and meeting them on-site, getting quotes and liaising with neighbours. He provides an honest and professional service.

Olivia Howard

2 cash offers in the 1st week… EXCEPTIONAL work! surpassed our expectations!

We found Paul to be straight down the line & honest with his approach to selling our property. Appreciated the timeliness & the detail of replies to our queries, the tips & suggestions on how to turn a house into home – we followed his advice & judgement in regards to the presentation of our property & it clearly paid off with a contract signed within a week.

We couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the service received from Paul & Anna.
We look forward to working with Penny Wood Lane again in the near future.

Kris & Erin Jobson

As soon as I met Paul and Anna I knew they had something special to offer us as agents. Having worked in Real Estate myself, I saw energy in them I’d never seen before in the industry.
We were in a situation where we had no choice but to sell and Paul and Anna had a warm, comforting perspective in an overwhelming time. I’d come home and Paul would be weeding the garden for us, getting to know the neighbours, helping us get quotes for things as we juggled our five children and workloads. They didn’t just offer us this, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve contacted them for advice or support in the lead up to our sale and they’d be at another clients home helping flood proof it, or painting or taking care of their animals.

Paul and Anna are a charismatic and enigmatic force to be reckoned with. Their visions and gifts and no game playing mean results and quick!

In the short time our property was for sale, we went to a bunch of open homes only to be met with lacklustre agents that left me knowing we had made the right choice having Paul and Anna selling our home. We’ve since listed and sold our second home with them and I have no interest in dealing with another agent again. Sorry guys you’re stuck with us for life!

Do yourself a favour and go with Pennywood Lane.
