Over the past 40 years I have purchased and sold nine houses from Brisbane to Townsville, so I have dealt with many Real Estates. When  I decided to settle in Rockhampton I tried the name companies & a few other locals until I contacted your company.


I have never been treated better nor received service to such a high level of competence in my life as I did whilst dealing with your reception and rental staff. I am now going into my second rental (the first due to excessive noise in the area) and I will not have the need to contact any other real estate in the unlikely event this one isn’t suitable.


I congratulate you on the selection of such wonderful people.

During the frustrating and very time consuming nine months of looking for our perfect home there was one real estate agent that stood head and shoulders above all the rest. David made our experience of purchasing a home a lot more relaxed, contacting us on almost a weekly basis regarding houses we may have been interested in. This was a massive point of difference from the other agents who we heard from the day after an open and then never heard from again. David went above and beyond in his search for our perfect home and it was the little things that made our search a lot less stressful. When we did purchase our new home it unfortunately was not with David and it was with some trepidation that we called to tell him that we were no longer searching. This nervousness was all for nothing as we think he was more excited than us when we told him of our news.


Having always sung his praises to family and friends we have no hesitation in highly recommending David to anyone looking to purchase a property. He will definitely be our first port of call for any of our future property needs.


Once again David, thank you for all your hard work and determination.

To Lydia Williams who managed my property from the moment it finished construction until its ultimate sale, I want to say a huge thanks! Lydia did a terrific job finding good tenants and then efficiently looked after all of the maintenance issues for the property – especially after the cyclone. The communication was frequent, professional and extremely helpful.


To Robyn Bentley who took on the task of selling my property in a tough market and under challenging circumstances, I want to express my utmost appreciation. Dealing with the tyranny of distance with me living in Victoria and also having to deal with my ex-partner, Robyn did a sterling job. To have the property sold quickly and at a fair price for both myself and the purchaser was an absolute weight off my mind. Again, the constant professional communication from Robyn was very much appreciated.


I have nothing but the highest praise for the Pat O’Driscoll Real Estate team. Thank you!

We engaged Pat O’Driscoll Real Estate to handle the sale of our home in Bowen Street, Rockhampton.  Robyn Bentley was the agent who worked with Pat O’Driscoll in marketing the property.


We found Robyn to be very knowledgeable in relation to the way to market the property and gave us a valuable insight into the selling process and how to manage offers that did not meet our expectations.  Nothing was too much trouble for Robyn and at all times we felt confident that she was working to achieve the best possible outcome for us.  Robyn showed great empathy with us as the sellers of the property and great understanding of the irritations and frustrations that the seller can experience in the marketing process.  She was readily available to answer questions and to provide information.  We were very comfortable that Robyn was representing the property very effectively and very honestly to potential purchasers, whilst striving to achieve the best possible outcome for us.


Based on our experience, we would endorse Robyn’s skills in her role as a Real Estate Agent.  We would recommend her for her competence and her ability to empathise with the seller and her ability to make a difficult period in the life of the seller much less difficult.  She achieved an excellent outcome for us and her professionalism was a significant factor in the successful sale of our property.

We have been extremely happy with the service provided by Pat O’Driscoll property management staff. Right from the outset when we decided to put our property on the rental market, our requirements as the customer were professionally considered and outworked. This professionalism culminated in a significant amount of interest being shown in the property and it being rented within a week of it being listed.


We have found the follow up service on matters relating to the lease of our property to be very responsive and of a very high standard.

I wanted to congratulate, acknowledge and commend Leza Thompson for her excellent service during the sale of our home at 89 Main Street Park Avenue. The service we received from Leza was exceptional. Leza went over and above what we were expecting and made the whole process very simple and painless. Being based in Canberra, we had concerns being completely detached from the process but Leza’s performance as our advocate was fantastic.


Throughout the initial process the tenants made access difficult, had it not been for Leza’s commitment to us and her tenacity to make it happen, we would not have sold our house.


Thank you so much Leza for all your hard work. We could not have asked for a better Sales consultant to guide us through the process.  Leza’s experience and professionalism served us well. Rose and I believe Leza is an asset to your business and we will highly recommend Leza to anyone considering selling or buying in the Rockhampton region.


Thank you for the bottle of wine to celebrate the sale of our house. Both Rose and I were pleasantly surprised.


Regards Tony & Rose Nicholls

We first came into contact with Pat O’Driscoll real estate in 2003. We purchased an investment property through the sales team and were happy enough to allow the property management team the opportunity to look after it on our behalf. We thought that if they weren’t up to scratch we could always change after a year or so. Well, eight years later and we are still happily with them and have absolutely no plans to change the status quo.

Over the years some members of the team have come and gone, however the quality of the service has remained consistent throughout. We used to worry about our investment as we live in Eumundi in the Noosa Hinterland, Sunshine Coast and it is a six hour road trip to ‘Rocky’. Well we went up once in 2004 to inspect in combination with a visit to friends in Yeppoon. Our friends left Yeppoon in 2005 and we have never had a reason to go back since. We have such a level of absolute faith in the Team at PODRE that we are happy to get our monthly reports and occasional phone call. The team is competent and up to date with legislation and more importantly we get feedback where and when required. They don’t bother us with the day to day mundane stuff and are always accommodating when we call with a question or query.

I own seven properties in Rockhampton and over time have used four different agents to manage these properties, with varying success.

Since moving my properties over to Pat O’Driscoll, I am much happier that all my properties are being managed professionally and effectively.  My property manager, always responds promptly to any queries I have and keeps me informed of what’s happening with my properties, however at the same time she uses her initiative and does not hassle me with every small problem.  The quality of tenants in my houses (always a big problem for me) has improved too since Pat O’Driscoll has been in charge.  I would recommend Pat O’Driscoll’s property management team.

Should any buyer, seller or investor  be considering the choice of a Real Estate agency in Central Queensland I recommend that the first agency (and it will probably be the last) that they consult is Pat O’Driscoll Real Estate. Pat and his team many years ago managed the rental of my home when I was transferred and also managed it’s sale.

More recently my mother has had to be admitted to a nursing home and subsequently it was necessary to  rent out her home to subsidise the cost of her care. As I live and work in Brisbane this presented many logistical difficulties. I immediately contacted Pat O’Driscoll’s and engaged their services. A prompt appraisal was conducted and very sound advice was given as to some electrical, hot water, security, shades, air conditioning improvements etc plus what I thought was a very fair rental price for prospective tenants. As I was not present in Rockhampton Pat and Wendy Mylrea, the property manager and other staff endured quite a few tradespersons collecting and returning keys for a number of weeks before the home was available. It was also a very difficult time for our family. During all of that time the agency charged not one cent despite the interruptions endured.  I was most impressed. Ultimately wonderful tenants were quickly found and  have made my Mother’s former home theirs and are caring for it exceptionally well.

I don’t generally hold Estate Agents in high regard as past experience is that many are out for a quick dollar Pat O’Driscoll and his team are DEFINITELY THE EXCEPTION. It is not by chance that Pat O’Driscoll started his agency in a tiny little office in William St Rochhampton and now appears to be the leading agent in Central Queensland.
