    Tina worked for nearly six years in property management on the Gold Coast before moving to Gympie and starting in sales. 12 years later and Tina has become a successful sales agent servicing clients throughout the Gympie region and achieving consistently high sales results. She truly believes in working for her sellers and prides herself on honest communication, hard work and tough negotiating with buyers to achieve the best sales outcome for her clients. 

    “I believe in raising the standard of service. This has been lacking in the industry for a long time and I strive to exceed my seller’s expectations from our first meeting through to the successful settlement of their property. Excellence in real estate is more than a catch cry – I truly believe in providing excellence and that is what my sellers can expect.” 

    Tina is in regular communication with her buyers and sellers and understands the importance of providing updates to her sellers with feedback and weekly reports on their property and the market. This point of difference has separated her from the competition and her clients are always delighted with her high level of customer service. Premium buyer enquiry is always achieved through Tina’s ability to represent a seller’s property through clever marketing, skilled photography, and daily follow up with prospective buyers through a state-of-the-art tracking database to match buyers with your property. 

    With strong community links to Gympie through community work volunteering with animals at the RSPCA and abused and neglected horses at Hope Reins, Tina loves working and living in Gympie and understands what draws people to the region. 

    Tina has an ever growing list of satisfied buyers and sellers and would love to discuss your property needs or appraise your property. For a genuinely positive experience, Tina is ready to deliver. 

    "Our recent buy / sell experience thru’ Laguna Real Estate was expertly managed by Tina Tillinger and Steph West - Wow! What a team!
    Their tireless work with us through Marketing, Open House and Contract negotiation enabled us to sell within 10 days!
    Our purchase was also managed professionally and went to contract quickly and smoothly.
    Some concerns with timing, legalities and “what ifs” were dispelled by personal support, giving us the confidence to proceed – we never felt “left on our own”. Even after our settlement was finalised, Tina made follow-up calls to offer further assistance, as needed.
    By our presentation of a very saleable property and by heeding Tina’s recommendations for our marketing program, all initial predictions for selling time and price were achieved. 
    We especially like the team’s philosophy of concentrating fully on fewer clients at any given time, in order to return a higher success ratio. 
    We are extremely happy in our new home and would readily recommend Tina and Steph to other prospective buyers and/or sellers who may be seeking a professional, well-proven agency."

    Gail and Graeme


    "From first meeting Tina I felt confident that she was the right agent to sell my property. Having bought and sold a few properties I've experienced most types of agents and with this I've learnt to trust my instinct. Tina is confident in her knowledge and ability, has a professional image and a friendly manner. she sold my home quickly and for just under the asking price. It has been an relaxed experience thanks to her attention to detail and her dedication. No question was ever too much trouble to answer even outside business hours. I would highly recommend Tina to be your real estate agent."



    "We can’t thank Tina enough for helping us sell my father's property at Gympie. Tina went out of her way to assist us and nothing was too much for her. Her professionalism was exemplary; her knowledge of the local area was excellent; and she was always available for answer any questions we had during the sale period. Tina’s attitude and happy personality are an added bonus and made us feel friends. We would highly recommend Tina to anyone wanting to sell, or purchase a property."



    "I have received fantastic service and follow up from Steph throughout the whole process. Steph is the type of person I like to deal with, she is down to earth and tells it how it is (professionally of course). This experience for me was on a large scale and I could not of asked for a better person than Steph to deal with. Steph was not pushy and overbearing, those kind of sales people I cannot tolerate. Steph also goes out of her way to answer and to help you with any questions or queries that you may have. I am very glad that I choose this house and had the pleasure of dealing with your real estate."



    "We chose Tina due to her professional approach right from the time she arrived at the front gate for an appraisal. Friendly, immaculate attire, confident and knowledgeable. Tina sold our property after just one open house. The online advertisement and newspaper real estate insert were perfectly worded and the pictures were amazing. We can now move on to our next adventure, thanks Tina."

    Craig & Tracey-Anne


    "Tina did a great job. I'd recommend her to anyone selling :-)"


    "We recently purchased a property in Southside. Tina and her team were knowledgeable, organised, had open communication and above all, made us feel comfortable through the entire process. We were impressed with the process of having an agent representing the buyer and another representing the seller. We'll do business with Tina and Steph again."

    Ben & Sarah

    "This is the second sale that Tina has undertaken for us in the past year. Yet again with the help of her personal assistant Steph, she has proven herself to be THE BEST real estate agent in the Gympie area. Tina has maintained her consistent communication with us as sellers on her usual very regular basis, and never did we feel that the sale of our property was stagnant or that "nothing was happening." Tina and Steph kept us up to date with feedback and suggestions and that creates a positivity that just does not project from other agents. We cannot recommend Tina enough as she is the Number 1 agent in Gympie- no doubt. Many thanks for your professional and caring service."

    B Mouland & J Mouland-Vail

    "Because we had a previous contract fall through and had another one about to go unconditional that dropped out she looked for a cash only buyer for us. We were so pleased she found our buyer and negotiated hard to get her to what we needed.  Thank you Tina for your great commitment and perseverance for and with us."

    K & E Herschell

    "I found Tina to be very approachable, friendly and professional and had a good grasp on the market. At all times she was courteous and respectful. I didn't feel that I was being pressured at any stage and would highly recommend her."

    S. Diefenbach

    "Thank you Tina, you did it again. We found Tina to be very professional, hard working and had great communication. Tina gave us regular verbal and written feedback as to the level of interest and comments from perspective buyers. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Tina and her team to anyone thinking of selling."

    Lorraine, Dawn & Gail

    "We have dealt with Tina before, and would not go anywhere else. She marketed our house well, brought us two contracts and we were sold in weeks. The feedback and communication is AMAZING! At no time did she leave us out of the loop, her advice was always helpful and we got the result we were hoping for! Well done Tina, you're a star!"


    "I found Tina very pleasant and easy to deal with. She had good knowledge of the area which made it easy for me to find the property that suited me perfectly, and at a great price. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone looking for a property to use her excellent services." 

    "After visiting Gympie and finding Tina from Laguna Real Estate I have to say purchasing my new home was made very easy. I found Tina's assistance invaluable. Having never gone to Auction before Tina was extremely helpful in this process. I would be more than happy to recommend her to anyone. The experience was first rate."
    D. Elliott

    After visiting Gympie and finding Tina from Lagoona Real Estate I have to say purchasing my new home was made very easy. I found Tina's assistance invaluable. Having never gone to Auction before Tina was extremely helpful in this process. I would be more than happy to recommend her to anyone. The experience was first rate.
    "I think everything you did for me was really GREAT! Tina was a wonderful person who totally understood what it needed to sell my property. 10 out of 10 from me!
    I. Downing 

    "Thank you ever so much Tina for the quick & easy sale of our home! And we mean quick, 3 weeks & you had it SOLD!!! You promised us you would & kept true to your word! We NEVER would have dreamt of such a quick & easy process! So thank you!!!! We met with more than 5 other agents from different agencies & never felt as comfortable as we did with you. You offered up more than just professionalism, you were kind, HONEST & really put your all into the sale as if it were your own home you were selling! You treated us with the most respect & worked with us for what we wanted not just for 'another' sale. Your friendly & bubbly personality certainly adds to the ease of it all. We can't thank you enough! And all the team at Laguna! You're all amazing!!! You will forever be our go to woman & we will HIGHLY recommend you to everyone. Truly, thank you ever so much!"

  • Thank you for the huge effort you made to sell our property at The Dawn.  With such an unhelpful, downturned Real Estate market you had to really push hard to get our property sold at the highest possible price we could hope for under those circumstances. Your dealings with us were very professional and honest.  Your knowledge of your trade was obvious, as no question asked was beyond an answer.  We learned a lot from you. Most of all we were impressed with your lovely, happy attitude.  You buoyed our spirits up when they were low, what more could one ask? Mae Elliott and Les Lloyd
  • Tina was extremely professional, and very easy to deal with. Brodie.
  • Loretta and I would like to thank you and your team so much for all your help and guidance throughout the sale of our property recently. Throughout the whole process, we were extremely impressed with your professionalism, expertise and integrity. The level of communication we received almost on a daily basis was incredible. As you know, I have been involved and worked in the Real Estate Industry previously and I can honestly say without a doubt I have never experienced the level of understanding and knowledge of not only the industry itself but the level of genuine empathy, compassion and customer service which you provided to us. There was never anything that was too much of a problem for you and we believe you definitely went over and about the ‘standard’ level of service I have seen and experienced before. We would have no hesitation what so ever in recommending you and your team to anyone who required and demands the highest level of professionalism, knowledge and customer service in Real Estate in the Gympie area. Bill and Loretta Tillott
  • We would like to express our thanks and appreciation for the support, guidance and expertise on the sale of our property. It was recommended by Tina to sell the property by auction and our immediate thoughts were of concern and apprehension after 2 previous auctions in the past were quite stressful. Tina explained the process that she planned to implement and that she would be with us at all times, before, during and after the auction. This proved to be successful as our home was sold in 4 weeks. We strongly recommend Tina Tillinger to anyone who is buying or selling their home. Thank you once again Kevin and Norma
