Billy Gartner and his team at Professionals Edge Hill are passionate about real estate and helping their clients achieve their property dreams.
Their combined wealth of knowledge and experience will assist you to reach your dream goals, whether buying, selling or renting.
The team loves ‘wowing’ their customers and going the extra mile to make them happy.
Principal and director Billy established the business in 1987.
His success is based on honesty, negotiation skills, customer service and a thirst for knowledge.
It is these characteristics that have shaped and inspired his award-winning team, who work hard to achieve results.
The Professionals specialise in a number of services, including residential and commercial sales, property management and project management.
They help their clients with renovations to ensure they secure the best possible price and Billy personally acts as a buyer’s agent to help people find properties not on the market.
The Professionals also help investors buy properties with reliable tenants already in place.
Billy said the team is currently looking for more rental properties and more properties to sell.
“We have the strongest property management team
in Cairns,” he said.
“Our property management team have all been in the business an average of more than 15 years.”
The Professionals team incorporates Leveaux Gartner, who has been in real estate for more than 22 years at the Professionals Edge Hill; Leveaux specialises in residential sales of units and houses, sales specialist Diane Bergey, who has been with Professionals Edge Hill for three years and focuses on rural properties and the outer suburbs of Cairns from Babinda to Ravenshoe; and inspection manager John McErlane, who utilises his skills as an ex-tradesman.
The property management team consists of Sandra McErlane, Debbie Mansfield and Brian Kovacs.
Paul Snelgrove is a licensed estate agent in commercial and residential properties, Davina Dixon works in finance and administration, Senna Stephen is their marketing specialist, Kelsi Cochrane is Billy’s personal assistant and Linda Williams is their receptionist.
“Our experienced agents go the extra mile to secure the seller the best price,” Billy said.
“We have a good relationship with painters, handymen, plumbers and electricians, so we ensure they do a good job for the right price.
“It really helps because we know the market and we go the extra mile for our customers.
“I truly believe that property is the best long-term investment.
“We get great satisfaction from helping people achieve their goals.
“When customers find their dream home, it’s a win-win situation for both the buyer and the seller.”
Professionals Edge Hill sell properties across Queensland, but they specialise in Cairns city, Edge Hill, Whitfield, Manoora, Manunda, Mooroobool, White Rock and Redlynch.
Billy loves having an office in Collins Avenue.
“I think it’s one of the most beautiful streets in Australia,” he said.
“It’s a beautiful area, with the botanic gardens, walking tracks, cafes, shops and people walking their dogs.
“It’s also becoming popular with tourists.”
The Professionals group is a National Breast Cancer Foundation Diamond Partner, with the company raising more than $3.8 million through fundraising.
They donate a percentage of each sale to the foundation.
