Our Story

Keyline Realty first opened its doors some 43 years ago with a mission to provide honest and ethical real estate services for buyers and sellers in Nambour, Yandina, Woombye, Palmwoods, and surrounds.

Unafraid to do things differently from traditional real estate agents, founder Ron Hicks and his team quickly earned the reputation as the most trustworthy real estate business in the Hinterland region. This reputation still stands today.

We operate with a customer-first philosophy and a dedication to doing what’s right for you. 

So you can move through your property journey with clarity, calm and complete confidence.

A Local Family Business

Now four decades on, our team has helped more than 16,000 people buy and sell homes around the Sunshine Coast.

Director Ron Hicks still keeps a close eye on all aspects of the business and his son Andrew who joined the team 6 years ago after a highly successful career in Nursing and Pharmaceutical sales is now Principal.

Andrew sells plenty of real estate while managing his amazing team which includes his daughter Holly – who is shaping up to be one of the brightest young agents in the hinterland. You could say real estate is in their DNA.

I have dealt with Keyline three times. My 1st and 2nd was with Andrew’s father and Andrew has continued the service and solid community spirit of a local company”

I have to say that Nicky and Zara are a formidable Team. I have recently had the pleasure to buy a property through Keyline Realty in Nambour and have never experienced such efficient and caring service as I have had here. The communication was clear and no request was too much. Keyline deserves a 5 Star review every day.

My partner and I are incredibly pleased with the service received from Keyline Realty for our first home purchase. The house buying process can be daunting, but their entire team was fantastic every step of the way. From finding potential properties to helping us negotiate an ideal contract, Mark and Nicky were always available and communicated how each part of the whole process would move forward. They also profoundly understood the housing market in the Nambour Region, which allowed us to get an incredible property that exceeded our expectations! Beyond their expertise and professionalism, the entire KeyLine Realty team was amicable and kind throughout our home buying process. They answered all my questions with in-depth explanations, ensuring I fully understood what I was doing and why it was necessary. Also a special mention to Zara in the office, whom on numerous occasions went up and beyond seeking answers to all of our questions, no matter how big or small! My partner and I are so glad that we ending up purchasing with KeyLine Realty, as they have all been helping us search for a property for over a year! Mark, Nicky, Zara and The KeyLine Team's knowledge and experience, combined with their patient approach, made this otherwise stressful event a smooth and successful process. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for top-notch real estate services!
