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”

OMG. I’m overwhelmed. Zara is the most beautiful soul. From start to finish, I’ve felt comfortable and comforted parting with a huge loved, chunk of my life due to her most caring, thoughtful essence. The entire crew have been helpful and Zara and Paul go that extra mile to ensure the process goes smoothly. I’m so happy that I trusted Paul’s recommendation for the legalities also. I can’t recommend these guys highly enough. Champions of their game for sure.

This was our first experience selling a house and Zara (contract coordinator) was the best! Friendly and professional, we were always kept in the loop and everything was always explained perfectly. Keyline’s team was a pleasure to deal with, thank you for getting our first home sold.

Purchased a neat two bedroom home in Coes Creek through Paul Skelton and the Keyline team in 2015. We made the decision to sell to move into a retirement complex June this year (2022) and had no hesitation in contacting Keyline to handle the sale. Over our life-time we moved house six times and, without doubt, Keyline has been, by far, the best of all of the Agents, and most competent team to handle this, our last sale. Thank you Paul and the Keyline team.... Owen and Margaret Jones

I became involved with Keyline Realty when I was looking to purchase an investment unit and to place an existing tenant from another unit in a rental property. There was a measure of urgency in finding accommodation suitable. It took several weeks. I am now a very happy owner of a beautiful unit in Nambour with a very happy tenant. Mark kept me informed showing me properties which may be suitable and everyone in the team I met was very helpful, in particular Lara who followed up on the Admin side. Congratulations Keyline Realty you are deserving of a 5 star rating. Thank you
