Daryl, Marcus & Katherine - Tugun

John Parkes of Ray White Tugun- "agent extraordinaire" !! - acted for me in the successful sale of my townhouse in Tugun early in 2017. John is highly motivated and always the optimist, which I found especially reassuring during an initial period when buyer interest was low. He also proved to be diplomatic in dealings with my tenant, who was naturally not all that keen to have people viewing the property sometimes at short notice, and his persuasive charm worked wonders! During the whole sales process John kept me right up to date on buyer interest and other relevant matters, all in a relaxed informal manner. His friendly attitude and sense of humour were much appreciated. Both John and his capable colleagues were always happy to answer my occasional queries in a prompt efficient manner, and quick to answer my calls and texts.

D Beech - TUGUN

John was extremely professional & honest. He was very approachable & easy to talk to about our options to market & sell our property & understood & met our goals.

L & D Horn - Tugun

Very easy to talk to & achieved a higher price than expected for the sale of my home! John kept me up to date on a constant basis.

D Dority - Tugun

John and the principal John Tymon were more than helpful and provided excellent service over and above a normal house selling situation. A major repair had to be done on the property before it could be sold and as I live interstate they handled all of this wonderfully for me, never complaining once. The sale of the house then proceeded smoothly and quickly. I could not be happier with the service I received!!

S Starbuck - Tugun

John has great communication skills, he is patient and nothing was ever a problem. He also got a really great price for us!

Stephen - Tugun

We have enjoyed our many dealings with John, during the process of auctioning our unique duplex property in Bilinga. We found him to be a high calibre salesperson with a pleasurable nature and friendly demeanour. John's knowledge of the market was spot on and his advice was highly regarded by both myself and my husband. The auctioneer who attended our auction day was extremely professional and enabled us to reach a mutually agreeable auction result for us as vendors and our new buyer. We also had the fortune to meet more of The Ray White Tugun team, especially John Tymon who also assisted us on auction day with a telephone bidder who ultimately was the successful purchaser. Our sincere thanks are expressed to John Parkes, Eric Davidson, John Tymon, April Robinson and Courtney Tymon, who are just a top notch Real Estate team. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Tugun to our many contacts and others who have a much loved property to sell. The experience is a very pleasing one.

R & J Timmins - Bilinga

John handled our sale thoroughly, professionally and with personal touches that made the process flow very smoothly. Great outcome & delivered on his word.

Melvyn & Helen - Currumbin

He got the job done in a professional manner with the minimum of fuss and achieved a great outcome at auction for our family! Thank-you!

Joan & Cheryl - Tugun

John Parkes and his team from Ray White Tugun recently helped us sell our house at Auction. From start to finish it was an amazing experience. John made us feel comfortable and in control. John and his team’s professionalism along with their positive attitude helped us achieve the best possible result for our house sale. We felt that they ran the perfect campaign for us, marketing was spot on, they were helpful and treated us with respect, and we are proud in how they represented us. The bonus was that we got a great price for our house. We would highly recommend using John Parkes and his team.

J & P Nelson - Currumbin Waters

We'd like to take the opportunity to thank you for selling the unit at Serendipity in an incredibly short time and with a price that far exceeded our expectations. The way in which you conducted the negotiations and sale was outstanding. Your enthusiasm for the property (and real estate in general), professionalism, respect, personable and hard working nature ensured a result that we feel confident would not have been matched by any other agent. Kindness is not a not word that one normally thinks of when thinking of real estate agents. However, you showed us great kindness and thoughtfulness during what was a reluctant sale and a difficult time for our family due to illness. This is something we'll never forget. Your kindness in taking us to the airport (twice) meant more to us than you can imagine. You also made the process of selling an enjoyable, rather than a stressful experience. You regularly kept us informed of proceedings and welcomed our inquiries, no matter the time. We always enjoyed communicating with you as your positivity towards the unit made us feel confident. Residing interstate, we had particular requirements that would have been difficult for us to deal with, yet you gladly agreed to carry out all of the requests we put to you. This made things so much easier for us. In all our years of buying and selling property, we have never experienced the level of comfort and trust with an agent that we felt with you. We are rather discerning people, so to find an agent who not only met but exceeded our expectations was remarkable. We like to think of you as a friend, rather than just a real estate agent.

L.W - Tugun

John was efficient and confident in his translation to me of procedure. I relied heavily on him to show me the way to get my property sold and and it all went smoothly.


I am writing to you to express my thanks to John. In the last 12 months we bought a property and we are now in the process of finalising the sale of another at 2/547 Gold Coast Highway. John at all times has been professional and pleasant to deal with. He understands his clients and acts accordingly. He has constantly kept us updated with the progress of the sale, and immediately returned phone calls. This is very much appreciated as buying and selling are stressful times for some of us, and John has helped eliminate this. We would not hesitate to recommend John to any of our friends who would be interested in buying or selling.

J & L Sandilands - Tugun

We just love John, he is a great seller of properties always enthusiastic and happy to help. He makes buying Real Estate a breeze and nothing is too much trouble for him even when you want to look at the same place again and again ... And even maybe again. He is honest and hardworking always trying to get the best possible solution for both parties. We can't speak highly enough of him.

L Jacobs - Tugun

I would like to thank John for his excellent and prompt Customer Service experience that I have had today. I will be recommending anyone I know to give their business to Ray White Tugun. I have been in the customer service industry for 30 years and genuinely enjoyed your customer service today.

W Hobson - Tugun

When my partner and I decided to sell our duplex and upgrade to a larger house, we approached several local agents and decided to list with John Parkes of Ray White Tugun, and this ultimately proved to be a wise decision on our part. We found John to be exceptionally professional in both attitude and attire, he was always prompt with appointments and inspections, kept us well informed of all progress, at times working after hours to meet or talk with us, and sold our property within the relatively short period of two months at a price we were more than happy with. We could not fault the service provided by John and would be more than happy to recommend him to any prospective vendor or purchaser.

Sheree & Darren - Tugun

Thank you so much to John & Ray White Tugun, for finding me the perfect first home. The communication was excellent throughout the whole "searching" process, and John went above & beyond to find me my new place. I couldn't be happier with the service, so thank you again!

J Rogers - Tugun

John, I am writing today to thank you for your efforts in selling my Aunty`s property recently. As I am out of the state and selling this property on behalf of my elderly aunt, I relied on your honesty and professionalism to achieve a very satisfactory sale. We had the pressures of a very subdued market along with a tight deadline for the sale of the property to contend with. From our initial meeting, I was impressed with your enthusiastic approach to the sale of the property. That approach did not change throughout the selling process with updates via phone and email provided regularly which provided us with a level of confidence in your selling approach. I believe you went above and beyond your scope in ensuring the property was sold quickly and effectively. I would have no hesitation in recommending yourself to any potential buyers or sellers in the future. Thank you again for your help!

P Rowe - Tugun

As I have recently purchased a property from John Parkes at Ray White Tugun, I would just like to say a brief note on my purchase experience. John was very friendly and approachable throughout the whole purchase process, which certainly helped to make this stressful and daunting experience a lot more pleasant. As this was my first property, I was quiet nervous and unsure about the whole procedure. John was very helpful, making me feel comfortable and confident with my decisions. He was always available to take my questions and pushed to have answers promptly and thoroughly. As my contactable time is limited, John quickly realised the times I was available and made sure he contacted me at a convenient time. Even to the point where there were times I thought I will quickly call John, to then realise it was probably not an appropriate time, when I would receive a call from him before I had a chance to decide either way.

M Vinton - Tugun

After making the decision to sell our Tugun home, we chose to use a local agent. It took little consideration in assigning John Parkes as our sole agent. His fantastic approach to marketing and honesty throughout the entire campaign was second to none. He constantly kept us up to date and always made us feel as though we were his priority. Not only did he successfully and promptly secure the sale of our home, he still continues to happily work with us in our endeavor to find a new home. We would have no hesitation in recommending John Parkes to anyone considering buying or selling. His thirst for perfection and satisfaction with every one of his clients are qualities that are much appreciated.

K & J Gadd - Tugun

My house had been on the market for 22 months without success until I changed Real Estate agents and joined Ray White Tugun. The agent assigned to me was John Parkes. I was most impressed by the enthusiasm and efficiency he displayed in marketing my property. He spared no effort to find prospective buyers, spending long hours in negotiations, often long after office hours. He was also very efficient in seeking properties for me to buy, driving me to inspect them and, again, negotiating with prospective vendors. I felt he always had my best interests at heart and I really appreciate his genuine respect and warmth towards me. The end result was that my property was sold within 4 weeks of his taking the assignment. John is friendly, cheerful and candid in his approach and I feel he has a very bright and successful future in this industry. I am extremely grateful for John's concern and professionalism and wish him every success.

M Galgsdies - Tugun

John Parkes was helpful, informative and patient. He would always do well at putting me at ease in what could be some stressful situations and not only sold our home within 4 weeks of being on the market, but was also extremely helpful in helping us find a new home.

Zina & Adam - Palm Beach

John Parkes from Ray White in Tugun has recently sold my house. This has been a remarkable feat of salesmanship and would not have been possible without his dedication to service. It has been a long drawn out process due to market uncertainty and marital issues. John has been there for me all the way. The house was first marketed by John in May 2010. He persevered with numerous open houses and excellent advertising in a very slow market. A contract was signed in July after great liaison with the prospective buyer, unfortunately due to an unsatisfactory building report the sale fell through. The market slowed further but John never gave up and was able to convince the buyer that the property was still viable, with a small price reduction he was able to secure another contract and the house was once again under contract followed by a successful sale. All in all it has been a long drawn out process, further hindered by the fact that the property had 3 owners and they were at odds over price and timing of sale. John has handled it all with great confidence and compassion. Keeping all of us informed at every stage of the negotiations, not an easy task. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and will be happy to supply any reference needed.

Royce Clark - Tugun

With age no barrier from day one we were extremely impressed with John's service and 110% commitment to our property. No matter what property big or small we have no hesitation in recommending our local Ray White Tugun agent John Parkes.

Mr & Mrs Beck - Tugun

This is to certify that John Parkes of Ray White Real Estate Tugun was the sole agent in the marketing and completion of sale of our home in Morshead Street, Tugun. We initially contacted 3 agents to handle the sale and finally chose John for his professionalism and honesty in his first contact with us. John was very conscientious and had a very happy disposition with all the prospective clients who viewed our property. John was always prompt and reliable and every request we made to him was handled in a mature manner. We would recommend John to any prospective seller or buyer and have nothing but praise for this young man. Thank you once again John.

John Braudigom & Hilary Cowen - Tugun

The whole experience was exceptional. From my first meeting with John Parkes in late April (just for an appraisal); to listing my property in early May; to a signed contract in mid May with settlement in early July (wow!) I found John to be very personable, positive and supportive. His help and advice regarding the presentationof my home was invaluable, particularly with 'the decluttering' process which was a challenge as I like to clutter. We had 4 open houses, 3 on weekends and 1 mid week at dusk and John was fantastic at showing people through. All in all, John made a potentially difficult and stressful time, very positive. I would not hesitate to recommend John if you are in the market for buying or selling your home.

Lynne Hooper - Tugun

John was always willing and available to answer my many questions. Genuinely interested in our circumstances and getting us the best possible outcome when it came to selling our two properties. We couldn't have been happier to have John as our Real Estate agent.
