What Our Clients Say . . .




From the beginning of 2016, our clients have been able to provide a review directly through Rate My Agent - :

We've kept the reviews prior to the beginning of 2016 for you to scroll through right from when we started Tropical Property.   Happy reading !


January 2016 - Shirley:  I was extremely appreciative of the understanding and guidance given to me by Susie during the sale of my Mission Beach property.  The fact that I am so far away and it was not possible to deal face to face can be frustrating but it wasn't in this case.  The sale was not straight forward due to personal complications, however, Susie made the process both effective and efficient.  I found her friendly and professional and a pleasure to deal with and would have no hesitation recommending her services.   

November 2015 - Vanessa:  Thanks so much for assisting us with the sale and rental management of our home in Bingil Bay over the last few years.  Your wise advice always welcomed and patience appreciated.

November 2015 - Paul and Sandra:   We were so pleased with the way Tania handled the sale of our property.  Over the years, we have engaged a lot of agents to sell for us and Tania was the best that we have dealt with - the way she explained the procedure for sale, kept us informed all the way through the sale and the little touch of a thank you was very much appreciated.  We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Tania to others. 

October 2015 - Steve and Lyn:   Lynn and I are so glad we met Tania at an open house, showing houses until we finally saw 5 Sanctuary Crescent, our new home.  Tania is the ultimate agent; very pleasant, always smiling and always ready to help us while we were looking to make Mission Beach our home town. 

October 2015 - Lucy:  Susie has been both my Strata company and real estate agent for several years. I love that she is proactive. Many agents do very little for their clients, but Susie was great at looking after my tenants, my needs regarding the unit and the complex as a whole.  It never looked better, the tenants were happy and I was happy.  In regard to my eventual sale of the property, Susie thoroughly explained what the market was doing and we worked together to come up with a workable price and it sold reasonably quickly.  Living away from the area, I needed someone I could trust to keep me informed and Susie absolutely fits that criteria.  No hesitation to recommend her.

July 2015 - Jakobus & Mariette :  Thank you so much for helping us find our beautiful home here in South Mission Beach.  We had been looking for a while and nothing that we looked at compared to this one.  We still have lots of work to do to put our own stamp on our home, but are enjoying every minute!  Thank you for sticking with us and guiding us through lots of decision making, you were a great help and very professional at all times.  We truly appreciate all your thoughtful input and advice. We highly recommend that anyone looking for a property in this beautiful part of the world do business with you Tania.

July 2015 - Stephen:  We recently purchased a property in Mission Beach. From our first contact with Tania, right through to settlement and beyond we found Tania was completely engaged, professional and helpful. It was such a positive experience. Thank you Tania

June 2015 - Scot and Jo:  We are pleased to say we have recently sold our house in Wongaling Beach throughTropical Property in a very slow market. From the first we were struck by the enthusiasm and professionalism shown by Tania and Suzie in their dealings with us.  We found them to be very innovative, positive and encouraging without being pushy.  We thank them both for their persistence and would like to recommend them to anyone wishing to have dealings with real estate in Mission Beach.

June 2015 - Gary & Sharon:  We'd like to thank Susie and her team on the wonderful assistance they provided us when finding our new home.  Susie was very straight forward in providing advice in relation to our purchase and it seems she was available 24/7 in assisting with our enquiries.  As a buyer from interstate it was important for us to work with someone who was genuine to give us confidence that our purchase was right.  Thank you Susie.  

June 2015 - Mike & Bronwyn:  Mike and I would like to say a big thanks Susie to you and the staff at Tropical Property for the recent sale of our house at South Mission Beach.  As it was a quick settlement, it was all systems go from the very beginning and thanks to having you and your staff keeping us informed with your professionalism, advice, honesty and courtesy, we found the process to be smooth and stress free.   We would have no hesitation in recommending Tropical Property  to any other sellers.  Once again, a BIG thank you.  

May 2015 - Don & Jenny:  It was great to have Tropical Property handle our recent real estate transactions.  From our first enquiry about a vacant lot of land, everything was very professionally taken care of by Tania and the crew.  Tania brought home the perfect trifecta.  She sold our old home, negotiated the successful purchase of our land and then arranged a 6 month rental property while our new house is being built.  A big thank you to Tania and Tropical Property. 

Feb 2015 - Sasha - Tropical Property have always provided such a professional yet personal approach to selling my house. It was under difficult personal circumstances that they took on the task but throughout the process their guidance and help was immeasurable. I can highly recommend their services.

December 2014 - Jandy:  It was certainly 'long haul' Tania, but you never faulted in your professionalism, friendliness and good humour.  A truly 5 star performance !  I'm so glad it was you I chose to sell my property.

November 2014 - Fons:  Given the numerous issues, you have been an amazing property manager.  I'm buying you lunch or dinner when I get up there.  All is good in the world again - you are a star.

November 2014 - Mary Ellen:  Hi !  I just finished reading your newsletter.  Seriously, the most interesting I have received from any real estate agent and I'm on the mailing list of 5 agents at the moment.  You girls are really on the ball.  Impressive !

November 2014 - Nita:  Thank you so much for your hard work and thanks to your team also - you've all been wonderful.


September 2014 - Stuart:   I wanted to thank you again for all that you have done for me and for encouraging me to make improvements to my home.  I know you have gone out of your way and have done lots of things for me that no other agent would have done and for that I am very grateful.  With your professional, courteous and helpful manner, you have provided me with an excellent long term tenant and my investment property is working for me.  I cannot thank you enough for the effort you went to for me and will recommend your agency to everyone and wish for prosperity for you and your team. 

August 2014 - Sabine - Netherlands: We had a lovely time at One Mission Beach and are spoilt for the rest of our Australian holiday.  This place was magic to stay in.

July 2014 - Gabriella: Arrived back home to 9 degrees and rain after staying at Mission @ Mission; still daydreaming of breakfast on the balcony looking out to Dunk Island !   Thank you for having given us the opportunity to stay in your "Paradise on the Hill", we felt so at home and treated it accordingly.  Hopefully we'll be back same time next year !

July 2014 - Chelsea: Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the weekend – we had a fabulous time at Wongalinga and absolutely loved the apartment!   Will make sure hubby and I come to stay here next time we are at Mission!

July 2014 - Bruce:  Dear staff at Tropical Property thanks for your news on Mission Beach. Even though I’m not looking to buy at this time I’m still really interested to receive your property news.  It’s informative and friendly.

June 2014 - Moira:  Thank you all SOOOO much.  I am happy to have this little monkey off my back and I couldn't have done it without you.  Thanks for managing the property so well and, Tania, you're a legend.  All my very best wishes to you all.

June 2014 - Bruce on Tamborine Mountain in SEQld:   I like your style you Far North Queensland Belles!

June 2014 - Susan:  Hi Tania, We have arrived and well on the way to being unpacked although we are very much in a mess still.  I was going to drop by and talk to you during the week but when I couldn't find your office Sarah told me you don't actually have one -  That shows online must work for you because I managed to buy through you without even realising! I wanted to thank you and your staff for being so helpful during the whole process. Your extra effort made it possible with so little effort from us. We both love the house and we are already feeling so comfortable here!


February 2014 - Melissa and Sam:  We have enjoyed our time in Mission Beach and your company was very caring and considerate.  We would happily recommend your services to anyone.


December 2013 - Maureen:  I just want to say thank you all very much again. It was such a success and memorable family re union.  It was very stressful for me organising and that is why i am so grateful to you guys.  It was especially great as we had our last family re union at Wongalinga 20 years ago just before our Mum died. Everyone was really happy and the venue played a major role.   I sincerely cannot thank you enough for your wonderful service and attitude.  I will continue to highly recommend your business to all.  If i have any real estate needs in future i know where i will be coming.

November 2013 - Clare:  'Timana' is unrecognizable from the run down state it was in when you took over, well done and thank you ! 

October 2013 - Susan:  Just wished to let you know that every week your e-newsletter puts a smile on my face with a ray of sunshine in the belly and I am sure that it does with so many other as well . . . 

October 2013 - Rosemary:  Received your email, love the pics, great write up. Thanks for caring enough to doing a good job at what you do. Thanks again Rosemary.


September 2013 - Carola:  I would like to thank you for the dedication you have shown in trying to sell our home, I know the market is not the greatest right now but I also know you are doing all you can for us.  Over the years Ken and I have dealt with a handful of real estate agents and I have to say your service is exceptional.

July 2013 - Mark & Tina: Thank you very much for all your assistance throughout the entire time that we have known you.  We wish you all the best for the future or any further endeavours that you may encounter.

July 2013 - Scott & Tia Jolly: We recently purchased an investment property from Tropical Property and were thoroughly impressed by the service provided. Tania's friendly personality, honesty and knowledge make her an excellent real estate agent. We really appreciate the effort she put in to ensure that things ran smoothly. Tania made sure that we were promptly updated of any issues or information. She was extremely helpful, professional and was always willing to take that extra step.  We have no hesitation in recommending Tania to anyone needing to buy/sell or rent and we will definitely be using Tropical Property for any future real estate business.

April 2013 - Cathy & Mick :  Hi Susie & Tania, Thanks for dropping that cheque around and also for selling our block. It's a huge relief for us and very much appreciated. Well done!

January 2013 - Kirsty Winder: Thanks so much for finally selling Conch st, end of an era!  A bit Sad, as I really did love that house and also as that is the end of our Mission Chapter. You have been an amazing agent, always looking after us and meeting our needs. You and Susie will be very successful  in Mission beach, with your fresh, modern day approach and impeccable customer service. And, you deserve it. Thanks to you, We can enjoy our new life ( its harvest time now! ) without the stress of topping up mortgages, naughty tenants etc. I wish you both all the best and thanks again!

January 2013 - Michelle: This would have to be one of the best Market Analysis that I have seen in MB!

January 2013 - Mark & Tina: Just looked at the listing with you guys this morning.  Loved the way you presented the property and just wanted to thank you, so thanx!

December 2012 - Maureen & Jeff Scott: We would love to recommend Tania and Susie from tropical property who were instrumental in selling our house.  Tania understood the emotional attachment that I had to the house after raising my family in it for several years.  Under the current house market, we were made feel optimistic, yet realistic about selling our house.  I believe their approach to selling houses is upbeat and very effective, particularly with their signage, which is uniquely refreshing.  From the date of putting the house on the market until the sale was a smooth process and Tania kept us in the loop through the stages.  We were very fortunate to have such friendly, personal and professional people to look after us and we appreciate the efforts that were made to sell our house.  We wish them all the best for the future and highly recommend Tropical Property to anyone wishing to do business with them.  Thanks guys!!!   

August 2012 - Michael Wheeler I would like to show my appreciation to Tania Steele of Tropical Property Mission Beach for assisting in the sale of my property this year. It is easy to show appreciation when selling at the top of the market or when buying when the market is depressed but when the reverse occurs there is not much to cheer about. In these difficult times I found Tania's advice and support indispensable and I unreservedly recommend her for her local knowledge, experience and compassion. Tania's community spirit and involvement provide the edge necessary in such a competitive market.

July 2012 - Kathy Walsh:  You are by far the very best strata manager we have EVER had. It is an absolute pleasure dealing with you and working with you !

May 2012 - Greg & Maureen Gysin:  We are very happy to recommend to anyone, both Susie and Tania from Tropical Property with the highest recommendation.  We first met Tania Steele when we were searching to buy an investment property at Mission Beach.  Eventually,  when meeting Tania as the Agent of a property that we were interested in, we became very impressed with Tania's honest and genuinely friendly attitude throughout the negotiation stages and finally the purchasing the property.  Tania was extremely helpful and professional with a passion for what she does, and she made the whole transaction a very positive experience.  After buying our property, a holiday bungalow in a complex, Tania introduced us to Susie England.  Immediately we were both impressed with Susie's warmth and her positive attitude.  Shortly after meeting Susie she became our Body Corporate Manager and since then we have not looked back.  

We feel that Susie really cares about her clients and has great ideas to help stimulate the full potential of our complex.  Recently we were excited to hear that Susie and Tania had teamed up and become Tropical Property bringing a genuinely fresh approach to real estate,  holiday rental and body corporate management.  We have no doubt that this business will grow and be extremely successful due to both Susie and Tania's passion for what they do, their drive and initiative.  We both feel that we have gained two good friends who are watching our backs and are there to help us with our dream of successfully owning our first holiday rental property. To anyone who's thinking of engaging their services . . . . . . . . . .  you won't be sorry ! 

April 2012 - Win & Greg Knafl: Tania sold both my business and our home. Her eye for details in advertising real estate and her follow up on all enquiries showed that she was willing to go further than most.  Her honesty and trustworthiness sets her above most others. We would gladly recommend her to anyone and wish her all the best in her new venture with Tropical Property.  Once again, thank you; we would not have sold if it wasn't for you.

March 2012 - Vanessa & Adrian Schafranek: We have had dealings with Tania for some time now and have found her to be genuine, honest and approachable. Her knowledge of the local area, market and buyers are second to none. Nothing is ever too much trouble for her and she goes out of her way to get to know who you are, what you want and where you are looking at going. Her friendly disposition makes her a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend her to anyone who was looking at buying or selling property.

March 2012 - Zena Davey:  I have had some wonderful experiences when dealing with Tania, whether it be buying property, selling property or having a sticky beak at property. Tania has always met me with the most beautiful welcoming smile, something lovely to say with heart & truth, and has always been so accommodating when I'm uncertain in real estate matters that I don't understand . . never have I felt embarassed to ask the most simple Qs.  She's the best there is in this business.

March 2012 - Susan Kelly:  Throughout the very trying business of not only looking for a house to buy , but also an agent that understood my needs....I found Tania to be a breath of fresh air.  We all know that agents work for commission but I genuinely felt that she cared not only about selling me something but she cared about finding the house that my daughters and I would love and live happily in. I would highly recommend Tania as a reliable and understanding agent, that cares.... In this often uncaring world that is the most important factor for me.

March 2012 -Cate & Jack Sturgess: On a weekend holiday to Mission Beach we fell in love with the tropical location, proximity to beach and rainforest.   We had the opportunity to meet with Tania to discuss our needs and, as former Sydney-siders we were astonished at her genuine interest in helping us locate a suitable property.  What we found remarkable was Tania’s ability to listen to our likes/dislikes and provide constructive advice without pushing for a sale.  This gave us time to talk, think things through and settle on our piece of paradise.  As a result of this, and her engaging personality, we would be happy to work with Tania in the future and wholeheartedly recommend her to others. It is though with some reluctance that we provide this reference as we’d prefer to keep Mission Beach and Tania our little secret! 

March 2012 - Stuart Halls:  I would like to thank Tania Steele for the assistance, guidance and support I received during my lengthy search for an investment property in Mission Beach.  I have known Tania for some years now as my trusted agent as she has sold my previous property whilst I was working in a remote mine site in WA.  The purchase of my most recent property was also done remotely as I reside in Mackay and it was done with the untiring help and guidance from Tania.  Tania is extremely pleasant, courteous and unbelievably helpful with some very important advice at times and was instrumental in gaining me the best property at the best price. I would recommend Tania for any property service requirements - oh yeah, and she is a pretty good sort too!

March 2012 - Kayley: I absolutely love these new fresh friendly ideas, I think you and Susie will be a huge success on personality alone.

March 2012 - Louise: Congrats Tania, saw your ad in the Tully Times today! You couldn't have picked a nicer partner. All the best with the new venture!!

February 2012 - Natalie Short:  Susie, you're too bloody good to put into words; we really have appreciated all your help with The Warehouse. 

February 2012 - Lorraine Clark: We would have no hesitation in recommending Susie as a Body Corporate Manager; her professionalism and diligence in handling our affairs since taking over has been impressive.  We would particularly like to thank Susie for the job she did in dealing with all the post Cyclone Yasi insurance and repairs.

January 2012 - Lesley Stewart: Changing to Tropical Strata Services is the best move our body corporate has ever made. Susie England is very professional, knowledgeable of the industry and of local issues, and excels in the level of services that she provides to her clients.

January 2012 - Ian & Mary Potter:  I would like to sincerely thank Susie for her tireless work and commitment to our units as our Body Corporate Manager. Since taking over she has had to deal with a number of pressing issues, including the fallout from Cyclone Yasi, and her professionalism and coolness under pressure has been exceptional.  On behalf of myself, my wife and the combined owners of Liana Mission Beach, a big warm thank you to Susie for her continued managerial expertise and assistance.

June 2011 - Paul Morris: Susie has been managing my rental property at South Mission Beach for just under a year. During this time I have found that her service is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble and every enquiry is handled promptly and in a professional manner. I would recommend her services absolutely.

June 2011 - John Syme: I have known Susie since September 2010 when she became the Manager of Purtaboi Body Corporate. Since then she has performed her duties professionally and with diligence and courtesy to all who deal with her. Meetings are held in a proficient manner and records are methodically recorded. She has negotiated with insurance companies after Cyclone Yasi on our behalf with considerable skill. Susie is an active member of the Mission Beach community and is widely respected in the district. I am only too happy to recommend Susie to anyone who is needing professional help.

June 2011 - Sharalyn Dennis: I am very happy to recommend Susie. We have found her to be a most efficient manager: she is local, she keeps us updated and all enquiries get an immediate response. We have had a lot to deal with due to Cyclone Yasi and to have Susie work on our behalf and get very successful outcomes is such a relief. Susie really does provide a unique personal service.

June 2011 - Jo Milne & John Gilbert: We are two New Zealanders living in Wellington who have an investment property in South Mission Beach with a body corporate attached to it. Living so far away we need to have absolute confidence that we have somebody looking after our interests in Australia in a professional and concerned manner. Recently our property suffered damage from Tropical Cyclone Yasi and we have been able to rely entirely on Susie England to handle all of the insurance issues relating to the damage to the property. To date she has carried out these responsibilities in a proactive way and caring way and we have confidence that the end result will be everything that we desire.  We have no hesitation in recommending Tropical Strata Services and in particular Susie England to anybody looking for professional help in managing their body corporate environment.
