Ron Hicks


Ron joined Elders Pastoral Company in 1965 and worked in Brisbane, Charleville, Quilpie, Gympie, Beaudesert and Townsville before arriving in Nambour in 1979.  During his time in these places he sold thousands of pigs, cattle, sheep and several huge grazing properties hence he was chosen to manage the newly established Elders Real Estate in Townsville.

Ron is one of the few people on the planet who has run a real estate business for over 40 years and presided over in excess of 8,000 sales, having sold more properties than any other agency in the hinterland particularly; Nambour, Woombye, Palmwoods and surrounds. 

“Business is currently flourishing with an amazing group of high performing individuals working together as the best team on the Sunshine Coast” says, Ron.

Ron and his wife Katie live on ten acres west of Nambour with two dogs and six chooks in a community of great neighbours and in an environment where Ron has photographed and identified over 90 different bird species.

Ron's motto has always been: "We achieve our goal when you achieve yours".

What is

the SmartRe Sale

how can it benefit you?

The SmartRE Sale is the best method of sale when there are multiple buyers for a property. It is the only effective method of sale when there is just one.

No Sale, No Charge.

TheSmartRE sale includes our no sale, no charge approach, insuring you’re not risking your hard earned money with old-fashioned upfront marketing costs. It is underpinned by a unique integrated negotiation strategy which using all four quadrants, guarantees you the best price in today’s market

Don’t sell your home for a high price. Sell it for the highest.

In a strong seller’s market there can be an enormous difference between a high price for your property, and the highest price. Talk to us today about how the Smart Sale can achieve the latter.

The SmartRE sale strategy uses the private treaty method of sale, with some subtle variations aimed at obtaining the HIGHEST PRICE.

If true genius lies in the ability to take something complicated and make it simple, then the reverse must hold true. Most common real estate methods take a straightforward process and make it dangerous, complicated and risky, for both buyer and seller.

The aim of any sale for the seller and their agent is to maximise the final sale price, with minimal risk for the seller and within the agreed time frame.

The aim for the buyer? Find the right property at the right price without having to navigate the deception of false pricing and spending money for no result.

For both the property seller and buyer, simplicity leads to good outcomes, and simplicity is the hallmark of The SmartRE Sale.

Most properties sold in Australia would benefit from this most transparent strategy.

During a private treaty sale, the property has a revealed listed price. It is a price the seller will accept and it allows the buyer to purchase the property at the asking price.

A genuine asking price close to or at market value helps the seller maintain the power within a negotiation once a buyer is found.

Find the best buyer, the heart buyer..

Occasionally, a buyer for a property defies market logic. They are a specific buyer for a specific house. This buyer will generally live in the property and it becomes their home. There is an instant and strong emotional connection. It might be a childhood home, close to work, close to friends and relatives, or maybe in the right school zone.

Whatever the reason, these buyers are emotional and buy with their heart – not with the cold logic of a financial property purchase. They will pay a higher price than expected, often above market value.
