Hi Mark,

We would have no hesitation in recommending Mark for purchasing or selling property. He has a vast knowledge and many years experience, in particular with waterfront homes. After listening to what we wanted and our feedback on listed properties, Mark presented us with the opportunity to purchase a very exciting property for our needs. I am sure we will continue a great business relationship for many years to come

Buyer – 30 Cypress Court, Minyama Waters
It is our pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Mark. Throughout the process of selling our home he was always professional, friendly and supportive, never pushy. We really appreciated him constantly keeping in touch and keeping us up to date with feedback from inspections and prospective buyers. Thank you Mark, it was a pleasure to deal with you again. Kind regards,
Trish & Colin

My wife Susie and I have known Mark Unkel for the past two years during which time we searched for a lifestyle property on the Sunshine Coast. Throughout this time Mark has been most patient and understanding of our needs and situation. Mark is most personable with a warm friendly nature who impressed us not only with his knowledge of the Sunshine Coast property market but also the manner in which he represented our best interest and those of his vendors. We felt no pressure at any time and were accommodated with open and direct response to our many questions and queries. Most importantly to us, as a direct result of our association with Mark Unkel we have secured our lifestyle property. We cannot recommend too highly the character and service of Mark Unkel.

Dear Mark, the time for our settlement is drawing closer now, Susan and I are certainly looking forward to having some more permanent roots on the Sunshine Coast.
I must say that over my years of buying and selling real estate, and there have been may acquisitions and disposals, not only for myself but also in my professional life.
I have not shared this with you but I am also a director and major shareholder of the largest independently owned financial services company in Australia. (Financial Index wealth accountants) I have bought and sold property for countless clients along with assisted our team of over 100 advisors.
We employ over 300 staff nationwide and advise in excess of 30,000 clients.
The reason I am sharing this with you is to give you some context of the experience I, and my firm has had with property transactions around the country. Also to give anybody with whom you choose to share this letter.
Over the past few months, as you know myself and my son have purchased property from your agency, dealing with yourself and Julie, I must say I have never experienced the degree of professionalism that you and your company exhibit.
In speaking directly with the vendor from whom Sue and I are purchasing, he remarked that from the other side of the transaction, he would not deal with any other agent to sell his property. In fact by default he had another agency looking after his property prior to you and he was totally unhappy with their services.
Mark your casual yet efficient style is breathtaking in the normally high pressure world of real estate. Never at any time did Sue and I feel that any of the conventional salesman lines were being tried on us.
We felt extremely comfortable and that we were being well informed by a true professional with fantastic local knowledge.
The same can be said for Dan and Katie who purchased from Julie.
I congratulate you on the culture you have built into you agency and I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your agency for any potential Vendors or purchasers. Many Thanks

My wife and I were looking to buy at Minyama recently, we asked some friends what estate agent
they would recommend to assist us. The name Mark Unkel came up 3 times.
That was good enough for us, we called Mark gave him a budget and asked for some feedback,
I mean were we being realistic or not.
He listened to what we wanted and suggested at least 6 properties that would suit our budget
He suggested we come to some open houses over the next few weeks to get a feel for the market
what was above our budget and below as well.
I have to tell you this guy knows his market and he seems to have a great repour with his sellers
which we thought was a big bonus.
I think the word respect is the description I am trying to convey.
Our experience using Mark was a really good one. He listened to us, introduced us to the correct house quite quickly, at no time did we ever feel pressured. I would thoroughly recommend Mark and Elite Lifestyle Properties if you are purchasing or selling.
