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.

Meet the team

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 listed my Townhouse with Keyline Realty without really knowing much about them. I thought I’d give them ago and I’ve been nothing but very impressed with their professionalism and knowledge of the Sunshine Coast. My experience with selling my property has been nothing but excellent all around. Mark is an excellent communicator and kept me updated regularly and efficiently. His team also provided me with information promptly and efficiently. Mark listened to what was important to me and create a program to suit. I cannot speak highly enough about Mark and the team they were friendly, approachable and always willing to do anything to meet my needs and make it an easy, smooth transition. A pleasure to deal with. Thanks Sally 😊

Zara was amazing throughout the whole contract process. She was always across the process, and super friendly. It made the whole process so must easier with her support, especially when contract processes looked like they were going to be delayed. Her rapport and awareness of other local services was invaluable.

Was extremely impressed with everyone I dealt with from keyline. They made the process of purchasing a property through them feel so much less stressful and were so helpful at every step of the way. Thank you Zara and Mark. Couldn’t have been more pleased.

When we started house hunting I always had a feeling we would end up purchasing with Keyline. They seemed to specialise in selling the cute character homes that we loved. From the first open home inspection the team were approachable, honest and professional. There was no hard-sell or ego from the sales team which I really appreciated as that was what I was actively avoiding. This was our first property purchase so we were nervous and inexperienced but Zara was wonderful and explained in detail what was required at each step. We can't thank Zara and Andrew enough for making the purchase of our first home go so smoothly and thoroughly recommend their services.

Excellent results from the professional team at Keyline, Paul and Zara, who successfully managed the recent sale of my property. They provided clear guidance at each step of the sale process and were responsive to any questions or concerns along the way. Happily recommend this agency to others.

The Keyline Realty team in Nambour were absolutely amazing when we bought our house. Always keeping in touch, keeping things simple and easy and were always happy to pass on info to our agents when we needed. Zara and Andrew were the perfect dream team and really made our purchasing experience SO easy and personal, as you could tell they were just as excited as we were to purchase our first home! They always checked in, no request was too difficult and we couldn’t have imagined purchasing through anyone else Definitely recommend going through this team when purchasing or if you need any guidance!
