This office was first opened in April of 2001, starting out no permanent rental or sales listings (opening up a new office) and initially trading as David Preston Real Estate. In those early days David Preston earnt a solid reputation in delivering results for owners and personal attention for owners that chose to manage or sell their property through this office. During those first few years David has his father help staff the office when he had appointments.
In 2005 Romana Preston decided to take long service leave from her 35 years at Banora Point School and joined us as the Office Salesperson. John Preston left us, finally starting enjoying his retirement. Romana's personal attention and her pleasant manner produced strong business growth and in 2006 went from a part time salesperson position to a full time position. The following year the business was renamed Kingscliff Sales and Rentals. Romana dedicated herself to the job of sales and between 2005 and 2011 sold nearly 200 properties. Romana was sadly diagnosed with ovarian cancer and passed away in May 2012. She is missed so very much
We strive to market properties as best we can. We go to extreme lengths to showcase them, using quality cameras and lighting to produce the best possible images, using photoshop and other photo programs to ensure they offer the best viewing experience online and in promotional material.
In 2011 we started property video production and we do this for rentals, sales and holiday lettings. No other agent in this area shows this sort of dedication to property promotion. It wasnt until later in 2020 during COVID that agents who werent using video found out they had to. These videos are produced through a youtube channel and embedded into our website.
Whilst the majority of offices charge for property photography and videography our office treats it as a complimentary service for exclusive sale properties and exclusive properties under management
In 2017 due to change in laws we became licensed and insured drone operators and today we have an extensive drone photographic and video library that we use in our property promotion.
We moved office in 2012 into much bigger premises located at 2/110 Marine Parade Kingscliff which is fully air conditioned.
Kingscliff Sales and Rentals continues being an independant agency as David Preston feels that personal reputation is very important in this business and continues trading as an Independant Agency and not a franchised office. This office is a member of the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales. These days we have 6 office staff and staff member working remotely off site.
We, as an office today strive to offer to clients the best possible professional and personal service with quality photography and videography in marketing for a competitive fee without all the add-ons that the other agents have.
