5 STAR AGENTS WHO TRULY WANT THE BEST FOR THE BUYER AND THE SELLER
We worked closely with Monica on the purchase of our property in Montville. Monica’s honestly and integrity was incredible and we really felt she wanted to best for us as the buyers. We felt extremely supported through the experience. Monica was always available and ready to answer any of our questions. It was an unexpected positive experience within the real estate industry and should we ever be in the sellers position would use and highly recommend.
TRUTHFUL, HONEST & RELIABLE
Roger and Monica are truthful, honest and reliable. I asked from day one for them to do this, as this is how I am, and I needed people who were going to treat a future buyer with the same respect. I needed a chain for the driveway, Roger bought and paid for the chain and locks. One day, he was pulling out weeds in my garden. Forever present and I knew I could turn to him if I needed anything done. It just happened that Monica became more involved with the sale. What started off as a business partnership between Monica McLaren and myself turned into a friendship. Her resolute attitude in selling my home was beyond expectations. Monica genuinely engaged her professional status as an estate agent. I never felt isolated through the process. Monica was always upfront and directed me with authenticity. I will always endorse Monica and Roger from Roger Loughnan Real Estate for people who want an honest sale or purchase. I’d also like to mention the receptionist, Susan. Most of the times, these are our first interactions. Susan, always smiling and always helpful. Thank you Roger and Monica. Verified by RateMyAgent

FIRST CLASS AGENT
I chose to list my property in Obi Obi with Roger due to the fact that he has been an agent in the area for over 20 years and has excellent knowledge of area, along with the experience of an extended sales career. Roger did not disappoint. He has first rate communication skills, along with the ability to negotiate the best offer for his clients. Roger works with the clients best interests in mind at all times and succeeded in securing me an excellent price for my property within a very short period of time.I would not hesitate to recommend Roger and his team for a professional and friendly sales experience.

We absolutely loved the property and were very grateful to Roger in supporting us through the purchasing process. He is a man of high integrity and I would not hesitate to recommend Roger’s expertise in selling or buying a property. Thank you Roger and Monica. Verified by RateMyAgent
WITH ROGER'S HELP WE FOUND OUR NEW HOME...
We appreciated our interaction with Roger more than it is easy to express in a few words. It was important to us that we found our new home, not only at the level of right place/right price but also that it came into the family in the right way. Roger somehow understood this from the beginning. He knew the property and the wishes of the owners (having had a long association with both) and quickly picked up on what was important to us and helped manage the process to a very positive conclusion. Since settlement, Roger has helped out with community introductions and has given us the best possible start. We genuinely appreciate his involvement and look forward to our own long association with him.
THE BEST SALE EVER!
We used Monica & Roger to sell our home in Mapleton and they were outstanding. The Roger Loughnan Real Estate Team stood out as the best Blackall Range has to offer: their organic rankings are excellent (meaning people find listings on his site easily), their social media presence was strong, and I could tell they put a lot of work into their listings. We spoke with Monica and then met with her at our home. She spent time answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes they sell, how long their listings typically stay on the market, and providing tons of info and comps in the area. Monica made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other agents don't, like having professional photographs taken, and a lot more. When we saw our listing we were blown away. Our house went under contract 9 days after we put it on the market at 1% under asking price. We accepted and Monica (and Roger who was also incredibly friendly and helpful) walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. We have recommended the Roger Loughnan Real Estate Team to everyone we know. Monica is a true professional and a genuinely nice person. I realize it won't always be this easy to sell your home, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Agency. Verified by RateMyAgent

EXTREMELY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL
We recently sold our vacant block of land and found Monica McLaren to be extremely helpful and friendly. We had our property listed with another agent for an extended period and received very limited feedback from them. A change to Roger Loughnan Real Estate was the best thing we could have done. Monica’s local knowledge helped us come to a realistic sale price range. We were kept updated throughout the whole process, from the initial listing to the final sale of our block.

Monica has lived and worked in the Hinterland for many years, this shows in her understanding and knowledge of rural properties.

Monica has great patience and diplomacy, her communications are friendly, helpful and always professional.

PERFECT, PROFESSIONAL, TRUSTWORTHY AND DEDICATED
Monica is an extraordinary realestate professional. She has always been upfront from day one and has shown me I can trust her. We have had many battles with the Sunshine Coast Council, but Monica never gave up. She has researched and initiated appointments with the Council so that the ultimate goal was to sell the land. I would give her 10 stars, not five. Her positivity and enthusiasm to sell the land went far beyond any realestate agent I’ve have had business with. I believe more realestate agents should aspire to her professionalism. Congratulations Monica on selling the land. Thank you. Verified by RateMyAgent

Honesty and integrity are without doubt something to be applauded in this business and my husband and I can both attest to that. You know exactly where you stand. Valuations have been spot on and justified when others have not always been on the mark. Monica has been outstanding in her diplomacy and in-depth understanding of the business of buying and selling property and her expertise in dealing with other people, super! Needless to say their assistance and advice has been greatly appreciated and we shall certainly be walking into their office again, with the utmost confidence.

As this was my first home purchase, Monica was very patient with all of my questions and guided me through the process, though I wasn't her client. Roger had the difficult job of answering the tough questions regarding the house put to him from my in-laws and partner. He was professional through it all, and I found him warm and kind. They accommodated multiple site visits, helped us negotiate a final price acceptable by all, and worked with the selller on additional requests.

A real pleasure - 18 May 2018
We had been looking for a house for some time and had decided to drive past two houses that were listed for sale to get an idea of their location. One house had already sold, but the other still had its for sale sign up. We noticed a car in the yard and thought it wouldn’t hurt to stop and speak with the gentleman standing near the car. It was Roger. He was waiting to show some other people through the house. He didn’t mind at all us dropping in unexpectedly. From our very first introduction to finalizing the sale, Roger (and Monica) was a real pleasure to associate with. He is an excellent communicator, knows the market well and if he couldn’t answer any of our questions on the spot, he always came back a short time later with the answer. At the same time as being highly professional, he was also warm and friendly and sincerely eager to help us with our house choice and purchase.

If we get the opportunity, we would use Monica again in a heartbeat. All the best to Monica and Roger.

Outstanding Agent - 23 Nov 2017
Monica is an outstanding professional with excellent judgement. We could not have had a better interaction with a seller’s agent. She would be our first should we ever choose to sell a property in Mapleton. It is not easy for an agent to satisfy both the seller and the buyer in a transaction. Monica has this gift.
Honest Agent - 23 Nov 2017
At all times Monica acted as a fair and honest agent. Although it was her job to act for the seller, she also was supportive to us as buyers.

Best agents to deal with. Genuine, honest, helpful, friendly, accommodating and more than willing to go above and beyond to assist in any way. Definitely recommend this agency.
Very Friendly Agents - 16 Nov 2017
Monica sold us our property and Roger was also involved. Both agents were very knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. When we moved in we were a little upset to how things were left and even though this had nothing to do with their agency Roger provided us with a gift voucher to a lovely local restaurant. This was an unexpected but such a lovely gesture.
Always helpful and considerate
Thank you Roger and Monica, to give your all as excellent country real estate people. Success within 24 hours! One can’t get much luckier than that! Well done!
Courteous approach and gentle nature

Monica was and is very good in all things. All very good! If I had something to complain about, I would do just that.
Roger did listen and understand our needs.

I couldn’t have been happier or more impressed with the service I received. I felt comfortable throughout the whole process. Dear Roger, thank you for the excellent service that you and Monica provided during the sale of my house at Kureelpa. You always acted in a professional and ethical manner on my behalf.

You negotiated the best outcome for me which was a quick sale and settlement at a price above expectation. The whole process was stress free which was much appreciated. I have no hesitation recommending your services to others.
We both very much appreciate the amount of inspection time and access we were given to the house and Roger’s willingness to organise and facilitate this for us. Being so approachable made dealing with Roger a non-stressful experience for us. Thanks for your relaxed and amenable approach to selling us the property Roger.

Recommendation – absolutely!!
We often talked during our journey of the need for feedback and this is vital at the clients end. Monica, we want to thank you for keeping the website changed and attractive. We changed agents to Roger Loughnan Real Estate because we weren’t getting genuine lookers/buyers. We had a unique property to sell and they were honest and enthusiastic from the beginning. Selling a property is a journey and Roger and Monica believed in the product and kept us positive and always focused on the day we would sell. There was no bargaining on the price, they achieved our asking price with a win/win situation for us the seller and our buyers. They are honest and trustworthy, strong with the needs of both buyer and seller. Recommendation – absolutely!!
Great local knowledge
Roger has great local knowledge which gave us confidence in the context for the property we purchased. We had wonderful open access to Roger who was our conduit to the sellers. He offered steady contact without overwhelming us. Roger’s quiet manner understates his knowledge of farms/land, people and the community. He was always prompt in this response to any questions we had and a pleasure to deal with. Our joy now living on the property is testatment to Roger’s honesty and insight in fitting buyer and seller together.
We highly recommend Roger Loughnan when buying or selling property. We located our property online and emailed Roger and he emailed us promptly and sent us more information and pictures of the property. He was always accommodating with our requests and he went out of his way to make things happen for us. Also, thanks to Monica who was also very helpful in our house-hunting journey.
Very personable and pro-active
I was very happy with the way the sale was handled and especially found Monica very personable and pro-active. And I would definitely consider using your office should any further occasion arrive.
Very professional and straight forward
Monica is very professional and straight forward in her dealings. She handled our transaction with style! Monica was helpful and very easy to deal with. We were very happy with the way she communicated and helped us through an unusual purchase. She always replied to emails and messages promptly and sorted things out straight away. On this sale she would have had her patience tested!
Extremely supportive and very informative
I highly recommend to any person whether seller or/and buyer to go through Roger Loughnan Real Estate. The staff are extremely supportive and very informative. They go beyond any standard I have previously been subject to.
I had recently arrived from New South Wales and Roger Loughnan Real Estate, and in particular Monica McLaren, were professional in steering me through a property purchase in Queensland. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone buying or selling property.
Professionalism, honesty and integrity
We believe that Monica and Roger acted with professionalism, honesty and integrity. While the market was slow, we felt that you were always working to sell our property.
Professional advice and encouragement
From the outset of selling our property we had huge confidence in the ability of Roger and Monica to market and sell our property. They understood our expectations and offered professional advice and encouragement. We would certainly use their services in future real estate dealing.
Loyal and trustworthy
It was an easy decision to entrust the sale of our home and property, ‘a labour of love’ to exclusive agents at Roger Loughnan Real Estate, Mapleton. The team were at all times loyal and trustworthy agents who quickly developed a good rapport with us both and, more importantly, an understanding and appreciation of our property and all that it had to offer. We felt that they were attuned to the type of buyer we were hoping would be attracted to our property, and in good time managed to make a perfect match.
Your dedication and support over the long term was much appreciated. If I were to buy in the area again, I would without hesitating choose your agency knowing the caring attitude shown to myself. Thanks to you both.
Accommadating and professional
Very accommodating and professional throughout our purchasing experience.
Total confidence in their ability
It was a total pleasure to deal with Roger Loughnan Real Estate as the selling agent for our Maleny property. Roger and Monica were always honest and up front and worked very hard markerting our property. We always had total confidence in their ability to sell our property, in this tough market, at a fair price for us and for the buyer. They both practise very strong ethics and morals. Their honesty makes them such a pleasure to work with.
I chose Roger Loughnan as my agent because when purchasing a home Roger and Monica cared and went out of their way to be of service. I knew all would be done to get a buyer for my home. I have and would always recommend Roger and Monica they are a wonderful team together. I thank them both.
Speed and accuracy
The team at Roger Loughnan provided us with unique properties to view in both Maleny and Montville. Any questions that required answering they did so with speed and accuracy. I would not hesitate to recommend their Mapleton office to anyone wanting a property on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Thank you Mapleton team.
Their word is their honour
I found Roger Loughnan Real Estate a very genuine and friendly office to seek property options in the area. They were truthful and honest about their listings, they listened to my needs (not what they thought I needed), they were efficient but gave ample time. In follow up viewings too, they answered questions honestly and followed up with more detail where necessary. They were supportive but didn’t apply pressure or “play games” – their word is their honour, the highest of values. Our friendship is ongoing which speaks volumes for Roger and Monica.
From buying our land through Roger and Monica nearly 12 years ago, to the sale of our house recently we have found them always approachable and have found their service totally professional in every way. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services to any prospective purchasers or sellers.
Greatest respect and love
In truth Roger, you know I have the greatest respect and love for you. Garrie and I very much appreciate the guidance you provided to Emma, the patience you displayed and as always the honesty and professional manner in which you conduct yourself. Should we ever need to buy again, and we anticipate we will, we will absolutely call YOU!!
We are very happy
I hope this helps someone else achieve their goals. Well our story starts with building a beautiful home we were going to live in forever, so spared no cost. Five years later, family changes and time to sell. Agent One – Oh the market says late $500’s and you will need to pay $3,000 in advance. Agent Two – Oh the market is no good we won’t achieve good results, but if you give us $5,000 in advance we will sell your house. Monica from Roger Loughnan Real Estate came last. Well what a wonderful change. She was so positive, “Let’s try and sell it for what you paid, let’s see if the market meets you.” And she did, we sold our home for the best possible price without spending thousands of dollars on advertising. We are very happy.
Easy to work with
I would recommend you to our friends. The service was professional, informative and Roger was friendly, easy to work with and a gentleman.
Very friendly, very open
Everything went very well, I think Monica does a very good job. She is very friendly, very open and always willing to help or give advise, and the advise was very helpful. Great to do business with you both.
Very friendly and helpful
We would recommend Roger Loughnan Real Estate to anyone wishing to purchase a home on the Blackall Range. We felt no pressure to buy and found everyone in the office very friendly and helpful. We are delighted with our new home which Roger made sure was in a very clean and presentable condition. The exceptional quality of the service made our move so much easier and pleasant.
Because my late uncle has used Roger and his team to sell his land, I had no hesitation to enlist the firm to sell the remaining two blocks. I felt the staff were very professional and were very willing to help. I was very impressed by the frequent communication from Roger to update the progress of each sale. I would definitely recommend Roger and his staff to undertake any selling and/or purchasing opportunities.
We couldn’t be more pleased
We selected Roger Loughnan Real Estate as his office follows the Neil Jenman philosophy of Ethics in Real Estate. Roger demonstrated the utmost respect for us as his clients as well as our property. We formed a strong partnership and Roger and his team were very happy to comply with our marketing strategies and pricing movements. We encouraged and received regular feedback and he went to great lengths to present our property to prospective buyers even when we were absent. Through Roger’s efforts we sold our property for a very satisfactory price in a time frame that was 50% faster than other properties in our area. We couldn’t be more pleased and grateful for Roger’s efforts.
I would not hesitate to refer Monica to anyone. Her professional and yet country manner was relaxing yet informative. We always felt valued and we enjoyed the fun of buying a home. All our questions were treated in a valued fashion and satisfactory answers gained. Your liaising with us and the seller certainly made for a smooth transition.
It is a pleasure to do business with Roger and his team. They behave like good friends as well as being trusted advisors. We chose the agency because we know you work with integrity and have the experience. We found the staff always to be personable but efficient. They speak well of everyone (buyers and sellers) which creates a very positive experience. The best experience was getting a sale for a great price, well done!
Extremely positive experience
After we explained our last real estate experience to you, you listened to our concerns and you gave us your word you would act professionally regarding both parties (buyer & seller). We had an extremely positive experience and were very satisfied with everything. Your company has restored our faith & trust in the real estate profession. Your standard of professional conduct is impecable and your personalised service was outstanding, your service was excellent.
Dealing with your agency is more like dealing with trusted friends. We took your advice and ended up with a great outcome and achieved a price more than the asking price.
Excellent and personable
I have had dealings with many business people and often find the sales part is good, but the after sales service is poor. With Roger Loughnan and staff I happily found the service to be excellent and personable both during the sale and the after sales follow up service. I really appreciate people who are good to their word, and who deliver what they say they will and who represent the buyers and sellers interests.
We selected Roger Loughnan Real Estate becuase of your association with the Neil Jenman philosophy of Real Estate conduct. We found the process of selling almost painless. Monica and all the staff were exceptionally patient with us as we blundered our way through the selling process and guided us to a successful outcome even thought he selling conditions were difficult. I found the integrity of the Roger Loughnan Real Estate team to be in keeping with the Neil Jenman guidelines for real estate conduct.
Most skillful and smooth transaction
Our experience of your service was that it was the most skillful and smooth transaction possible. Your response to our initial enquiries strongly influenced our decision to list with you. In the long lead up to our decision to sell we greatly appreciated your advice and the time spent by Monica on our behalf. Thanks you for a professional and satisfactory outcome.
Roger and Monica both provided ongoing and professional attention. It was a challenge for them as our property was rented through much of the selling period. They had frequent contact and advice and very good liaison with the solicitor and the rental managers. They were unfailingly helpful and patient with our queries and concerns – many many thanks!
Honest and caring
As a seller I was impressed by the presentation and attitude. I would recommend Roger Loughnan Real Estate, I found their team to be honest and caring in all their dealings with me. Everything was smooth flowing.
Faultless and very professional
We had absolute confidence from day 1 and could not fault your service or advice. Your genuine approach and sincerity were evident from the start and your service was faultless and very professional. Roger and Monica were always happy to oblidge with their time and advice. If only dealing with agents could be so straight forward and professional. The business exudes a real ‘country feel’ that makes you confident that all will turn out in the end as it did for us. It was a pleasure.
A pleasure to deal with
I was very happy with the service. Roger and his staff made the whole process of selling our commercial property in Montville very easy with good web presentation and effective liason with prospective buyers. It is a pleasure to deal with a firm that prides itself on its integrity and a high level of service. Everything was handled very efficiently with pretty minimal effort on our part.
A decent bloke!
I was very pleased with the service provided by Roger Loughnan Real Estate. Throughout the marketing period i was kept fully informed and felt like i was getting individualised attention. Depsite the slow market at the time, Roger never wasted time showing the house to buyers that the house obviously would not suit. Instead, he guided the right purchaser to making an appropriate choice. I would thoroughly recommend this agency. Roger was recommended to me because of his integrity and honesty. I am pleased now to count him amongst my acquaintances. A decent bloke!
Positive experience from beginning to end
Roger, Monica & Lara – you have a great team together. Thank You! It has been a pleasure having your company represent the sale of our home in Mapleton. We can honestly say we had a positive experience from beginning to end with you and your staff who always treated us with courteous and professional service. We sincerely wish you every success in the future.
