“ Having been with 4 agents over 8 months( who promised the world but still had no sale) l was feeling a bit despondent- then l had a mail drop from Raine & Horne Ocean Shores to which l responded! From the start l was impressed with Julie-Ann Manahan's & Charlie's professional manner & marketing strategy which ultimately led to a sale within acceptable time! Can't speak highly enough of Raine & Horne Ocean Shores Yours Peter Martin ”
“ Julie-Ann and Charlie are extremely professional Agents. Julie-Ann and Charlie worked incredibly hard to achieve a fantastic result for us whilst selling our Hinterland property at Goonengerry. An efficient sales campaign was launched with almost immediate outcomes. We where given regular progress reports during the sales campaign and nothing was ever too hard for this fantastic duo. Every detail was attended to with a smile and a can do attitude and this was reflected in the end result. If you are selling your property this is who you want to do the job. I look forward to doing business with Julie-Ann and Charlie again soon. Jamie & Fiona xx ”
“ Amazing Agent! Julie-Ann was extremely helpful and supportive with the purchase of our first home. Could have been more daunting with an agent we didn't get along with or trust but in this case it made the whole process easier and less stressful. Julie-Ann was always available to lend her advice and expertise at all stages of the process. ”
“ Hard working, pleasure to work with - If you want your home to sell for the best possible result, then this is your agent. Julie-Ann's sale results speak for themselves. Highly recommended. ”
“ Julie-Ann and her team at Raine & Horne, Ocean Shores, offer outstanding, professional and friendly service. Julie-Ann lives and breathes real estate and she achieved a fantastic result for us when we engaged her to sell our home. We had our house (in the popular beach-side suburb of South Golden Beach) listed with another local agency for over 1 month without a single offer. We then sought to find another agent with a more professional approach. Upon meeting Julie-Ann, we immediately knew that she was truly a professional with many years experience, and with an in depth understanding of the local market. Within 1 week, with only 1 open house, Julie-Ann got us an incredible offer which we accepted! We could not have been happier! Julie-Ann's service is second to none and we were impressed with her communication, as well as her hard work, throughout the sale/settlement period. We would highly recommend Julie-Ann and her agency to anyone looking for great results quickly! Sarah Bartley and Ben Mannaa. ”
“ Very straight forward to deal with. Clear, concise and works hard for the client - whilst maintaining a credible position and relationship with the prospective buyer at the same time. ”
“ We loved having Julie-Ann represent us! Not only is she a great person but she is an honest and down to earth agent! Super professional and seamless in marketing and all avenues of the sale process. I've not hesitated to recommend Julie-Ann to friends interested in selling either and will definitely be asking her to represent us again in the future. Thank you JA! ”
“ I used Julie-Ann to sell our home in November 2017. I found her to be friendly, efficient, accessible and accurate. The appraisal showed a good understanding of market dynamics, and we achieved the sale price we were after. I would recommend Julie-Ann in the future. ”
“ Julie-Ann is effervescent and energetic and went out of her way to secure the best price for the sale of our investment unit. The marketing is exceptional in comparison to what other agents were offering. The communication between me and also the tenant was excellent and I was kept informed at all stages throughout the sale process. I thoroughly recommend Julie-Ann and the team at Raine & Horne Ocean Shores if you are looking for a professional, hard working agent. Thanks Julie-Ann for going the extra mile. Patrick ”
“ Julie-Ann and Jason did an exceptional job of selling our home in Brunswick Heads. We had given them a price that we wanted to achieve and when at the beginning we didn’t quite hit those numbers we were never once pressured to take a lower price. They really work for the seller and you can see they have a real passion for selling houses. I have found in the past some real estate agents can be a little dishonest to put it nicely. The Raine &Horn team are always up front and honest with their feedback and I feel the way they go about it is with a great amount of integrity. Highly recommended and will be using again in the future. ”
“ I have had the pleasure of selling & purchasing two properties through Julie-Ann`s Raine & Horn business in Ocean Shores in the last 6 months. On both occasions, Julie-Ann and Charlie were there to assist with anything and everything during the process. The purchase of our latest property was complicated and drawn out and Julie-Ann was able to bring all parties together in the end for a fantastic result to all concerned. Julie-Ann and her team are extremely hard working and know their market well, I have absolutely no issue recommending her and her team to you as a buyer, seller or investor. ”
“ Julie-Ann Manahan is an outstanding agent whom I have recommended to other sellers without hesitation. We have been impressed with her services from the very outset which were stress free, efficient and professional. JA was a great communicator with excellent market knowledge and she believed in our property which was greatly appreciated. JA worked hard to achieve a fantastic result and we thank her very much. ”
“ Julie-Ann Manahan has given good professional service marketing our property. We would recommend Julie-Ann to anyone considering selling their property in the North Byron area to contact her and her friendly staff. ”
“ We initially had our property listed with another agent who seemed to have lost the plot. Meanwhile, we noticed that Julie-Ann’s properties seem to have a shorter time on the market than other agents. Julie-Ann presented us with a brilliant marketing plan. In a matter of a few days she had organized the marketing and photography and drone shots. These were of an exceptionally high standard. Unlike the previous agent. Julie-Ann displayed active listening skills, an avid communicator and nothing is too much trouble. She has an eye for detail. Refreshing to have an agent that actually wants to get the highest price possible and not just want to sell the property at any price to get their commission. Julie-Ann monitors the whole process and intervenes when necessary to keep the ball rolling so to speak. If you are buying or selling a property in the North Byron Coastal areas and you want a stress-free experience, we can thoroughly recommend Julie-Ann for her advanced professionalism, market knowledge, easy-to-talk-to friendly, down to earth approachable manner with integrity and advanced negotiating skills then you can do no better than Julie-Ann and her team at Raine & Horne, Ocean Shores. ”
“ Julie-Ann Runs a real estate agent not like any other in this area. She is professional, compassionate and in my case willing to put in a huge amount of effort to bring the purchasers across the line. She never asked for thanks nor fully explained how hard she had worked behind the door of her office to bring a very satisfying sale, quickly and efficiently. ”
“ After trying to sell for six years and using countless agents we were lucky enough to get Julie Ann and her team on board to sell our property. Within three months it was sold and the price we got was more than what we thought we could get. Thanks to Jason, who handled our sale we can now move on to our next adventure. Thank you!! ”
“ Very professional and dedicated to achieving best possible price ”
“ We recently bought our house at South Golden Beach though Julie-Ann. She is an absolute pleasure to deal with and made buying the new house fun. She answered our questions very directly and honestly with very authentic communication. There were some issues to be explored and negotiated with the vendor and she facilitated that process very professionally. I feel both sides were happy with the outcomes. She is an expert in what's happening in the South Golden Beach market. Whether you are buying or selling she is the agent to talk to. Thanks Julie-Ann. ”
“ I found that Julie-Ann really stands out from her peers in the local area because of her high level of professionalism. In particular, she understands and honours the fact that her primary client is the vendor rather than herself. She loves what she does (and it shows), works very hard, operates ethically, and has nous. Importantly, her office is structured to work as a team rather than competing with each other, resulting in better behaviour, better outcomes and a happier climate for clients. With so many agents, you are left wondering at the end of the process what you have paid for. With Julie-Ann, you get what you pay for. ”
“ Julie-Ann organised a viewing at short-notice and had a good local knowledge of the area. She communicated well in all parts of the negotiation and we found her to be easy to get along with and a trustworthy real estate agent. We would recommend her in the future. ”
“ I have know Julie-Ann and Liz Hickey for years and they are absolutely amazing both professionally and personally ”
“ We would like to thank you for your enthusiasm and efforts in selling our home. Your proactive approach to the marketing of our home and the level of communication re feedback was excellent. The end result result was an outstanding sale price for our property. Again, thank you for your professional and caring approach with the sale of our family home. ”
“ I decided to sell my beautiful old Queenslander 5 months ago, and as soon as i met Julie-Ann I knew she was the one to help me with the daunting task of doing it on my own for the first time. From the very start she was helpful, knowledgeable about the area, highly professional, reliable, and totally available at any time. She sold my house within the first two weeks of being on the market, even above the price I thought it would go for! Her negotiating skills are extraudinary, and I've never known anyone to work as hard, or devote their time with such passion and gusto as Julie-Ann. She really does love her job, the people she works with, and her clients. Raine & Horne in Ocean Shores are like a family to each other, and the close union they share shows through with the success of the business. They genuinely care about people they work for and with. Definitely, if your thinking about selling your property, have Julie-Ann look at your place for an appraisal, and you will see what I mean! ”
“ Julie-Ann was my only choice for an agent to sell my South Golden Beach Property. She was efficient, friendly and in tune with the area and needs of the buyer. I sold in 3 days for a confident realistic price. Happy to use her again. ”
“ My experience with Julie Ann has been nothing short of outstanding. She works for her client and not in it for a quick sale to make the commission. Her enthusiasm, passion, energy and most importantly honesty is refreshing. She is extremely knowledgeable with all aspects of her industry and goes to seminars to add to her already exceptional skills to ultimately get the best price for her clients. I came across Julie Ann by default and delighted that I did. I would recommend Julie Ann to anyone selling their property. You don't want a NICE agent, you want the BEST agent. Give her a call today and see for yourself. ”
“ Many thanks for your professional guidance and integrity during the selling of mum and dad's home. You have always been so pleasant, approachable and trustworthy in ensuring that the best outcome could be reached for the sale of the family home. I know, at times, that I have been quite emotional and panicky, but I have certainly appreciated your understanding and cool-headed manner in your communications with me. I feel very comfortable in being able to deal with Raine and Horne in future undertakings. ”

Thank you" Sandra - Excited Buyer ”
“ "Very professional, combined with an honest friendly approach. We cannot thank Julie-Ann enough for supporting us to secure our dream home. Right from the start she was such a delight to deal with. We felt very comfortable and trusted her instantly. Julie-Ann went the extra mile, through strange times, due to the covid , and communicated openly between vendor and ourselves to make sure both parties were being supported. We cannot thank her enough, and highly recommend her impeccable skills and knowledge as a top realestate agent." Kaz - Thankful Buyer ”
