About Us and our Team

The real estate agents that put you, your lifestyle and your home first. We work together with yourselves to discover what you really want from a new home.

All About Us

We all move home for different reasons, growing families, new careers, escaping the ties of high maintenance living, moving out of home, or simply chasing a fresh start.

Wherever life finds you, we are here to make sure you end up exactly where you want to be, and we won’t stop until you get there. After meeting up for a chat, we will paint a picture of your story and needs, map out a plan unique to you, then go about making it happen.

Australian City Skyline

Local

We will be with you the entire journey, from departing your current home to finding your perfect new place, even organising a rental (if you need it).

As locals, we know what it means to love where you live. It’s chatting with neighbours over the fence. It’s embracing the vibe of buzzing street markets and community events. It’s living in a big old suburban house surrounded by shady trees and parks. We really care about using our local insights to help you realise your properties possibilities.

Surreal Estate

Impossible is not a fact, it’s an opinion. We are here to prove the doubters wrong. When it comes to buying or selling the word ‘can’t’ isn’t even in our vocabulary. Well, part of it is, great things happen when you open your mind. It can open the door to first home ownership. Keep your sea change dream alive.

Redefining ‘Home-Work’

We may spend our days studying you and the places you are going next. However, in our free time, we turn our attention to all the latest property trends. The more we learn, the more we earn. By staying ahead of the curve, we are best informed to make decisions that ultimately identify optimal real estate outcomes for all.

Record Breaking Marketing

We don’t just upload your home to the main real estate websites. That’s what our competitors do — we go much further. Instead, we promote your home to up to thousands of people on a variety of social media platforms including buyers outside your suburb and buyers who we think are more likely to respond to your home type.

Michael Vella

Principal & Sales Manager

Born and raised on a cane and small crops farm in the Childers area, I am proud to say I am born and bred in the region. After leaving our family farm I completed a trade as a boilermaker in Bundaberg before starting with a national playground manufacturer Megatoy Play Systems. Moving through the ranks I quickly became General Manager servicing corporate customers such as McDonalds, Hungry Jacks, Bunnings, Councils, Schools etc throughout Australia, South East Asia and the Middle East. In 2011 I purchased a small agency called “Andy’s Realty” and soon after changed its name to be A1 Realty Wide Bay Burnett.  I have grown our own business and returned to my roots of agriculture with acquired business acumen. Helping our area grow by attracting new residents and business to our communities is one of the most satisfying aspects of real estate and allows us to share our beautiful part of the world. Specialising in Horticulture, my versatile background allows me to help our clients with a variety of properties including Residential, Lifestyle, Land, Commercial, Development Portfolios and Business Brokerage.
