Testimonials for Qld House & Land


Testimonial from Louise M. – New home in Pt Vernon

From the moment we spoke with Phil Buttriss from Qld House & Land, we knew we had found an agent with a difference. He is informative, honest and transparent and he went above and beyond to help us purchase our new home. No question or task was too small or too difficult and every request was met with a smile.

Purchasing a property in Queensland, whilst residing in Victoria and during Covid times, meant we were unable to actually inspect the property.

Phil was our man on the ground and he made us feel confident and secure in the purchase we were making. He organised and attended meetings for building and pest inspections, real estate agents, blind fittings and more. He provided us with information that we would never have thought of and helped us out on many occasions, even dashing out to buy a dishwasher and having it installed on the day of settlement.

We couldn’t be happier with our new home or with the service provided by Phil from Qld House & Land and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell in the area. You definitely won’t be disappointed. Thank you so much for everything Phil.

Testimonial from Geoff & Mako – Sale of home in Burrum Heads

I found Phil Buttriss from Qld House & Land to be honest, straight forward, accurate with his appraisal and act in a manner not too common these days. There was no conditioning of the vendor, no over the top price expectations or buying of the listing as they say, no pressure to lower price indeed the opposite looking to set good fair prices for the estate.

Nothing was too hard for him and communication was 5 star. The advertising was excellent videos too and were covered, so no hidden extras. I can thoroughly recommend Phil and his business and methods. Quite frankly others could learn a thing or two from Phil.

I can say with hand on heart he will not let you down. Thanks again Phil, I would actually buy shares in you mate excellent.

Testimonial from Mandy C. – Coolum Beach

We had our block of land at Burrum Heads on the market for years and could not sell it. This was partly due to the market and partly due to not enough work being put in to actively sell it.

Phil Buttriss from QLD House and Land was recommended to us and we are very glad that we took this advice. From the moment Phil took over the sale of our land we felt like we actually had someone that was working hard to help us achieve our aim of selling.

Phil is a delight to deal with and could not have been more helpful, obliging and respectful to deal with. We would recommend QLD House and Land to anyone needing the services of a real estate agent who will work with your well being in mind. Thank you Phil.

Testimonial from Rach & Rod F. – Hervey Bay

Phil Buttriss has been outstanding from day 1 in our adventure of finding land, house plan and builder. He is extremely easy to talk to and has bent over backwards to help us.

I can not count how many questions I had and how many phone calls I made to Phil and it was never a problem for him. We had a few stressful moments but Phil kept us positive and would not allow us to give up hope of our dream to owning our own home.

We are now very excited and can not wait for our home to be built. This adventure would not have happened without Phils help.

Testimonial from San K. – Hervey Bay

Phil Buttriss from Qld House & Land is excellent and the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. He is kind, genuine, friendly and makes you feel like you are being taken care of.

I met Phil when I was enquiring about another house that was for sale. Though I didn’t end up buying that house, he asked the criterias I am looking for, gave me lots of good advices/suggestions as I was not sure what I am entitiled to and finally found me the perfect one. He never quit until he found the one I really like.

The whole process was new for me and my husband. However, Phil was very patient and very understanding. He went through all paperwork with us again and again and he himself makes sure everything is checked. He did all the hard work. He answered all questions within an hour (Sometimes, I couldn’t even reply a day later after he answered my questions). You can be very sure that all questions will be answered.

Phil also prompted me to do essential things without being asked. Being the first home buyers, we really did not know what questions we should be asking and Phil knew it very well. Never took any advantage of us and we managed to save a lot of money by his good recommendations and efforts on household appliances. Whenever I needed help with anything (I mean anything at all) I know I could rely on Phil. Even after whole process’s finished, he checked in now and then to make sure we are settling well. We are very happy that we chose Phil from Qld House & Land as our real estate agent.

With thanks

Testimonial from Rosie B. – Hervey Bay

What made you decide to buy your home in Hervey Bay?

I grew up in the city and it was always so crowded, busy and polluted. I visited Hervey Bay around 15 times before deciding I wanted to live here and fell in love with multiple things. The beach and it not being too crowded, kind and relaxed people, good school choices for my daughter, having enough places to shop but it not being over the top and it having an overall relaxing atmosphere.

Why did you choose Qld House & Land as your real estate agent?

I felt I connected well with Phil. He understood that I was a younger client than usual and I didn’t know the process of things, I’d end up late for meet ups more often than not and he understood that too, he practically bent over backwards for us which was amazing and showed he cared about us and he was kind to my daughter which really matters to me.

What did you like best about your experience with Qld House & Land?

How easy the communication was, I felt it was easy to ask Phil a question and get an answer and I really felt he went above and beyond for us.

What do you think Qld House & Land could have done better?

Honestly I don’t think there is anything.

Would you recommend Qld House & Land to your friends and family?

Definitely, they were a huge help for us and made a big life step smooth and easy.

Thank you for all the help, we appreciate it so much.

Kind regards

Testimonial from Samson D. – Canberra

We choose Hervey Bay for our investment property because we think it’s time for growth in Hervey Bay. I googled about properties in Hervey Bay and started talking to lots of property agents, and found out that Phil from Qld House & Land was the right person to talk to.

Phil Buttriss was our agent. We bought a new construction property. He was very patient throughout the process. He took the time to explain the buying procedure for new construction homes. He gave us the valuable suggestions while negotiating with builder. I think that definitely gave us better deal. Not only this, but Phil had been a good advisor in terms of suggesting us from where to buy the appliances, property manager, solicitor etc..

I think Phil is very honest and isn’t pushy. He gives his honest opinions and enables buyers to make the independent decisions. I think that is very important to me as a buyer.

I would highly recommend Phil from Qld House & Land as an agent. We are planning to buy next home in few years and I would definitely hire Phil as our agent.

Thanks and regards,

Samson D.

Testimonial from Marianne T. – Darwin

My beautiful block of land in ‘On the Beach’ estate settled yesterday.

Phil Buttriss was my Real Estate Agent and was recommended to me by friends in Burrum Heads.

I must say I’ve been very very happy with the wonderful service Phil has provided, and feel that he has gone over and above normal duties.

Phil not only secured my full asking price but organised surveyors and solicitors for me. He is a very pleasant man to deal with and his communication exemplary.

I highly recommend Phil to prospective clients and wouldn’t hesitate to work with him again.

Yours sincerely

Testimonial from Michelle B. – Burrum Heads

My husband and I approached Phil Buttriss with a purely speculative enquiry about the availability and price of a block of land in the “On the Beach” estate that was not on the market.

We found our dealings with Phil from this point onwards first rate.

What Phil said he would do, he did. When Phil said he would get back to us, he did.

At all times throughout the ongoing negotiations we were fully appraised of the standing of our offer.

Once the contracts were exchanged and signed we proceeded to settlement seamlessly.

I highly recommend Phil to anyone for all of their real estate needs.

Testimonial from Alex Y. – Brisbane

My brother and I recently bought two plots of land on the new Pandanus estate from QLD House & Land, from the get go, Phil was the principal point of contact from QLD House & Land. He helped with the whole process from initial inquiry through to submission of the covenant of my new build.

Always available, and with quick and accurate answers and responses, there was absolutely no issue with contracting the purchase of land from Phil, even though I was living out of town throughout the whole process.

Pricing was very competitive and no frills answers and great attitude in all dealings. Phil was extremely helpful throughout the whole process, and even going above and beyond, past the land contract execution date to assist me in submitting my covenant and obtaining a prompt reply from the developer (wanted a quick response to expedite the pre-build process with my builder).

I absolutely recommend Phil Buttriss and QLD House & Land again, for any land purchases as I have had a great experience with him for my brother’s plot & my plot.
