HEMINGWAY VILLAS, NOOSAVILLE
We recently were fortunate enough to have Theodora and David sell our unit in Noosaville. Theodora and David Garwood turned what is usually a daunting task into a pleasure. Everyone wants the best price for his or her property and we truly believe that we achieved the absolute maximum price in the market place.
They kept the advertising costs to the minimum and our property sold under the average selling time for units in the area. Both Theodora and David provided the “personal” service that comes with a small operation. We are located interstate but felt as if were right next to them during the entire process. They contacted us immediately after each open day with feedback on every person that attended the day.
They also helped in arranging for the removal of our old furniture as well s the necessary tradesman to meet the requirements of the eventual buyer. They did everything humanly possible to assist in the sale of the property.
In summary, we would have no hesitation in recommending Theodora and David as your selling agents. We have left our contact details with them and would be more than happy to speak on a one to one basis to confirm that the above is correct.

Agents usually over promise and under deliver but in my case however, David Garwood proved to be trustworthy and reliable, and his word and reports could be believed. He was always prompt and unfailing in his feedback and information to me about progress and inspections, consistent in his approach, giving me advice and ideas which were useful and I felt comfortable with trusting him with all aspects of selling my $2million property.
He persevered until he got the result, a sale in less than ideal times. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a loyal and reliable sales agent.
SOUTH PACIFIC 46, Noosaville
I met Theodora as she was walking past my unit one day. When she realised I was selling it she asked if she could have a look. Theodora came through and told me then and there that she would sell it, which was a huge breath of fresh air, as it had been listed with another real estate agent for 12 months and they had done absolutely nothing.
In the next couple of weeks we had signed everything up and away Theodora went. Plenty of open houses, and attention on my property. This was wonderful as it was listed in the lower price range and would not amount to much commission when sold. I was treated with the utmost respect and Theodora viewed my property like it was worth a million dollars. This was unusual as well and it gave me confidence in my property and that it would be sold. Well it did!! In about 3 weeks in a difficult market.
I know that Theodora worked hard for me and I will be forever grateful. When I get back to Noosa from my trip away, she will be the only agent I would call upon. I know and respect her work and professionalism to the seller and the buyer. It was truly an amazing experience.
FAMILY HOME, CASTAWAYS BEACH
I wish to sincerely thank you Theodora for your determination and positive attitude in the successful sale of our home. I know we weren’t the easiest of clients to deal with and I am sure you gritted your teeth once or twice, but your professionalism was exceptional and without fault. I hope that our praises of your work to friends and neighbours will hopefully flow on and gain you quality listings and sales in the future.
I believe that selling this house has been one of the hardest decisions that we have made simply because we loved the house, neighbours and location so much and I know you understood this and helped us over this hurdle.
Looking forward to seeing you on Friday and onwards to the next chapter of our life.
SOUTH PACIFIC 78, Noosaville
When my wife and I decided to sell our 1 bedroom unit in South Pacific resort, Noosaville, we did not know what to look for in an estate agent and so we met with a few. We definitely found what we needed when we met with Theodora and David Garwood, they certainly stood out from the rest.
When we first met them at the property they had already done their homework, they knew everything about the resort, the sales history and had an understanding of the point of difference with our unit. We felt as though the sale of our unit was as important to them as the sale of a one million dollar property and that all visitors to our open homes would be treated as potential buyers.
Their perseverance and dedication throughout the sales process was beyond reproach. We were always left with the impression that they were busy working to get that sale. Throughout the process we felt engaged, we knew what was going on, could guide it, but with their help didn’t have to work hard ourselves to achieve it.
At the end of our journey now, we almost feel sad we don’t have another property for them to sell and given how stressful selling a house is supposed to be, that’s a reason in itself to choose Theodora and David!

Theodora has recently sold my apartment in Noosa Heads, It was challenging and at times, a difficult sale in a difficult market and Theodora remained positive and consistent during the time it took to secure the sale. I would highly recommend Theodora to anyone considering selling or purchasing.
It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with someone so personable and professional
VERANO APARTMENTS, NOOSAVILLE
Theodora was wonderful to deal with an we became friends through the sale of my property. She has determination and an excellent knowledge of the local area. Theodora stood out from the rest, as my unit had been on the market for some time. She listed the unit and within no time at all produced a buyer and more than satisfied my expectations, presenting me with a full price offer! She is realistic with her valuations and I hope to do business again in the future with Theodora. Well done!

Testimonial for David Garwood
I have known David for over 10 years now – he has always been a source of information and credible advice, when we were owners together in the same unit complex. Not your run of the mill estate agent, but a reliable, well informed and trustworthy human being. Always imparting his knowledge and help, even when there was nothing in it for himself.
When it came time to sell there was no hesitation on my part.
And it was not an easy property to sell, with a very narrow market and issues affecting its appeal.
But David used his skill and persistence, never letting up until he achieved a result. Professional application, constantly updating financials, sifting through literally hundreds of enquiries, almost all of which were unqualified to buy, and presenting the property in its best light. And he kept me informed. The majority of agents would have lost heart, but not David, and it was not even a large sale or commission, but that did not put him off.
I would unreservedly recommend his services to anyone selling their property.
Bayview Road, Little Cove
When I first considered selling my home in Little Cove, I contacted a number of well known Noosa Real Estate identities in order to assess their personalities, attitudes and professional advice. One I spoke with spent considerable time maligning the opposition which had the opposite effect on me. Another was effusively enthusiastic but his advice was "the sky's the limit" which had me think that this person was not dealing honestly with me.
my initial discussion with you left me feeling comfortable, well listened to and treated with respect. I liked your attitude and level headed advice. None of my subsequent dealings with you brought any disappointment. I appreciated your professional and frequent reports after every viewing and continuing advice. I was never left wondering - I was informed at every stage.
Happily on receipt of a contract I was able to proceed onto my holiday knowing all was in capable hands.
I have every confidence in recommending your service to any of my friends looking to sell in the Noosa area.
Sincerely, Pam Noble
6 Tropicana Rise, Castaways Beach
David Garwood and Theodora took on the task of selling our beach front home the sale of which had been mishandled by a previous real estate company. They approached the sale and settlement with a purchaser in an efficient and ethical manner. At all times they my (the seller's) best interests in the forefront of the negotiations.
9 Tropicana Rise, Castaways Beach
I have employed Theodora as my selling agent on 4 occasions over the past 7 years and she has always come up trumps. On the last occasion she had my property at 23 Persoonia lane Doonan jointly listed with another agent who had 4 listings in the street. I did not think she would prevail in this case but she did so achieving a record price for the area of a massive $1,520,000.
She worked extremely hard to achieve that result, and always had mine, the seller's best interests at heart. She is very intuitive and relates well with prospective purchasers.
And she has done it again, achieving a record for our street here at 11 Tropicana!
I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking for a vendor focussed agent to sell their property.
ELEMENT ON COOLUM - A GREAT PURCHASE
Thanks Theodora for helping me to purchase an investment unit on the Sunshine Coast. Being based in Sydney, your courtesy in meeting me at the airport to show me around was invaluable. Theodora provided me with information about the local real estate market, so I had a realistic understanding of what my money could buy. I now have a great 3 bedroom unit in Coolum.
PROACTIVE AND PROFESSIONAL
Theodora has an excellent network of contacts, communicates well and delivers what she promises.
