David first started real estate in 1989 on the Sunshine Coast. After moving to Port Douglas in 1990 David worked in hospitality for a few years before getting back into real estate. He spent 13 years selling real estate in the Port Douglas/Mossman region and after a short stint on his own as Port Douglas Real Estate, David joined forces with Travis Schumacher in 2009 to form Raine & Horne Mossman/Port Douglas.
David was very professional in his service and considering I purchased this property via an Auction, the process on the day. went really well.
Just a note to thank you for achieving a good price for me with the above sale and making the transaction so quick and easy.
In a tough market, David Cotton kept me well informed in his progress and inspections for my property. It took a long time to sell mainly due to the local market being depressed, however David impressed me with his commitment, professionalism and patience, and I ended up selling at the price I advertised, which may not have happened with other agencies. Thank you David, and thank you to the Raine & Horne Port Douglas team
David Cotton was a pleasure to deal with. David was always available for any queries we had and matched our property to the buyers on the first go and made our transition very comfortable. We would highly recommend David and Raine and Horne to prospective buyers or sellers.
I would highly recommend David Cotton, a truly motivated sales man.
Property was bought through RH. Logical to let RH sell it. Selling property in FNQ is hard. A long sales period however not unexpected. Another agent was engaged but they did very little
Hi David, Thank you very much indeed. I had not expected such candour from a real estate agent and I am very pleasantly surprised. your candour does you great credit. I am applying to renew the town planning permission for two years which is only a relatively small fee and if there is a change in the market in the next two years I may be able to do something. Thank you again.
I have pleasure in giving this testimonial concerning the service I have received from Mr. David Cotton and his staff at Raine & Horne Real Estate, Mossman Over many years I have had dealings with various Real Estate agents and I can say without any hesitation that the service I have received from this agency surpasses by far anything I have previously experienced. Their cheerful willingness to deal with difficult situations, while making their client be at ease and not to feel a nuisance was a refreshing experience. A unique feature of their service is their availability at any reasonable time to deal with queries or problems and to cope with their client’s particular needs. They have a serious dedication to achieve the best outcome possible for their clients, and work diligently towards this end. I can truly say that I cannot imagine how anyone could receive better attention and service than from Mr. David Cotton and his staff at Raine & Horne Real Estate, Mossman.
David’s experience and knowledge of the local market was invaluable. We were able get the result we wanted in a very difficult market! Travis was exceptionally helpful in the recent purchase of our house. Nothing was too much trouble and he kept us very well informed at all times. The entire team at Raine & Horne are extremely professional and I would not hesitate to recommend them. Big Thanks to all!!

When it was time to sell my newly built house in Mossman, Qld late last year I knew it was going to be difficult enough considering the current state of the economy and the huge downturn in the housing market we were all facing within Australia and World Wide. This , together with the fact that I was permanently living interstate, I was extremely concerned with who I could entrust to perform the very important task of selling my house. David Cotton was recommended to me by my landscaper as an honest, reputable man who had gained much experience from being in the real estate business in Far North Queensland for many years and was now just beginning his own real estate business Raine & Horne Mossman/Port Douglas. After calling David from interstate and speaking at length with him, I was instantly impressed with his enthusiasm and drive that would be required to sell my house at this difficult time. He was straight to the point and told me truthfully how things were needless to say I decided to sign up with him that night. Throughout the entire process and being interstate, I had to rely totally on David to communicate effectively with me and to organise all the little things that needed doing concerning the property. I have to say that he did not let me down once. Again, in a market where nothing was moving at all in the Mossman area, I was extremely lucky that David was able to find a prospective buyer and then successfully secure the sale for me. Thank you David for your persistence and the way you conducted yourself in a professional manner throughout the process. Kind regards
I would like to thank you for your advice and enthusiasm in the sale of our property in Newell Beach. Living in a different state to the property could have been extremely challenging for us but your guidance and professionalism was reassuring and helped to give us peace of mind during the whole sale process. It was great to see a new business giving the more known names a run for their money. I wish you every success in the future of Raine & Horne Mossman/Port Douglas.
Thank you for staying in touch. We purchased a block in the Island View Estate at Palm Cove and we are going to start building soon. I applaud your tenacity that is how to do business.
I can't believe you did it again. I don't know if you realize that, that is the 3rd property you have sold for us in Port Douglas in 5 years. I don't know how you do it but I have to agree with your marketing strategy and next time I won't question it.
"David Cotton is an excellent agent. His local knowledge is first class. David was completely transparent throughout the whole sale process. His staff are excellent. David sets him self apart from other agents due to his understanding of his clients needs. There was no deviation from the original plan. Being in Sydney, David's regular communication and updates were impeccable. I could not recommend David and his team strongly enough. A thoroughly pleasurable experience.
