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”

The guys at Keyline are FANTASTIC! Mark was so enthusiastic to find the right home for us to start our family. Mark was very patient with us during our journey and prioritised our taste as well as making sure we didn't buy the wrong house. We couldn't be more thankful and grateful that Keyline were there for us for what could have been a stressful time. They made it fun, exciting and always ensured our best interests. Couldn't have asked for a better realestate company to have on our side. Thanks!

My husband and I are first time landlords. Holly did the research and showed us what our property was worth on the rental market, then made the process easy by explaining each step in plain terms. Having the property photographed, listed and viewed, and then rented followed a straight forward process. There were no hidden fees or "gotcha" charges. Keyline Realty believes in finding the right renter for the right property, so both tenant and landlord are happy. And we are very happy! Thank you Holly!

I wish to sing the praises of Keyline Realty in their handling of the sale of our house. Their help and guidance was of great assistance to us. Their professionalism was evident in everything they did. I appreciated their friendliness too as it made the whole process much more relaxing in what was, at the time, quite a stressful situation. I would recommend them to everyone.

I can't thank Mark,Zara and the whole team enough for how easy and smooth they made the whole buying process for us. If we ever had any questions or weren't sure of anything they were always happy to answer, there depth of knowledge was very helpful and gave us piece of mind also. Thanks again!

Nicky at Keyline Realty went above and beyond to make selling my Dad's home smooth and stress free. I would highly recommend her and her company to anyone who needs a professional, reputable real estate agent. Such a positive experience.

I can't praise these guys enough. From the initial open home with Mark to the liasing with Zara further along the process, everything has been so easy. The team are always happy to help, friendly and for us the whole purchase went so smoothly. As first time buyers, we weren't familiar with the process in buying property, but Zara explained everything in easy to understand language and was so easy going yet professional. I wouldn't hesitate to use Keyline again and recommend highly.

We sold our property recently through Keyline Realty. Andrew, Zara and the team were wonderful to deal with, the service, advice, marketing and communication were top notch and we had a sale within the week! Zara in particular is a real workhorse, nothing was too hard for her and she went above and beyond to keep us informed at every step of the way. Andrew and his sales team were excellent too, and achieved a very good price for us. Heidi on the front desk was always so helpful as well. All in all, they are a very dedicated team and I have no hesitation in recommending them to handle all your real estate needs. 🙂

Recently bought my first home from the team at Keyline, a very positive experience. Mark was an honest and helpful agent and Zara was always available to answer questions about the contract and steer me in the right direction. Would highly recommend
