"Peter Brussel – a Kingscliff local – and a real estate agent/property manager extraordinaire!
We first met Peter when we purchased our beach front property through him back in 2011 (and for subsequent land purchases). Since that time, we have used the exemplary skills of his wife, Diane Hendy in the interior design and management of our holiday rental (permanent rental since mid 2018). Peter and Di are the best property management team on the Coast (in our opinion), particularly if you are not close (we live in London). With a commitment to ensuring that landlords are well represented, this has not been at the detriment of our clients and tenants and their sage advice, management and negotiation skills has ensured strong, respectful personal relationships amongst us all based on honesty and integrity. Peter and Di have become lifelong friends. Your property could not be in better hands. Good luck to you both in this exciting new venture. We will remain with you every step of the way!"

Peter is a fantastic agent, I highly recommend him
“Peter is an exceptional agent, with in depth knowledge of the local market. Peter assisted us in acquiring vacant land over 5 years ago. He then managed the rental of the property for over 4 years. He was amazing at finding new tenants for us, we had very little vacant time. When the time came to sell, Peter assisted us with that process and achieved a great outcome for us. I can't speak highly enough of Peter, he has amazing customer service skills and I would definitely use him again in the future.”
- JOHN LIVESEY
Excellent Personal Service With Great Local Knowledge
“We worked with Peter for the sale of two properties in the South Kingscliff area. Peter was really professional through the whole process. His local knowledge of the area and its real estate market, coupled with his attention to detail at every step made him a joy to work with. He kept us very well informed and guided us through every step. We feel we got the best deal available on the two properties we sold through Peter and would have no hesitation in firmly recommending his services to others.”
- JOHNATHAN CLARK
10 years of incredible service by Peter
“Peter has assisted us with purchasing and selling properties in the area over the past 10years. He has always had a great knowledge of the market and its movement. His professionalism and dedication to getting the job done is appreciated. He is an agent true to his word and we highly recommend Peter as your Agent if buying or selling.”
- TONY AND MARY FORSYTH
"Peter Brussel has been managing our rental properties in Kingscliff and Casuarina since early 2016. Other real estate agents we purchased our properties from treated managing rental properties as an afterthought. Peter however is a specialist in rental properties: he knows both the market and also knows how to market your property. In over 2 years, across our 5 properties we’ve never had a lost day without a tenant. Add to that that he consistently obtains premium weekly rental incomes for our properties well above estimates from other agencies.
Peter represents our properties ranging from a luxury studio apartment to beach villas to a beachside family home; Peter markets them all as premium niche properties. Peter’s wife and business partner Diane Hendy is a great complement to his business given her background in interior design. Di has shared her design expertise with us providing valuable insights and tips on how to maximise the presentation of our properties with minimal investment required. Her specialty is holiday letting so we get the best of both worlds: we take advantage of the holiday peak season with high rates, and then in the off-season months Peter finds us a tenant. It’s a win win!
It’s a pleasure working with Peter who genuinely loves what he does and that’s evident in his level of service and responsiveness. He’s happy to host open homes in the evenings and weekends, and is available to tenants to deal with any issues 24/7. Tenants are happy, and landlords are happy – that’s quite an achievement in property management."

"Highly credible agent with above market results. Peter originally sold us the land in 2014 and we stayed in touch since to discuss the market in Casuarina. I set Peter an optimistic benchmark in terms of price that we were looking to achieve and Peter said he could achieve that. His local knowledge of the area was invaluable and Peter was able to confidently and effectively position the value of our house and the build quality. As a result, we achieved a sale for the full asking price, which in turn set a new record for the area. Having both bought and sold from Peter I would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone in the area!"

“Peter was introduced to Villawood Properties in mid 2012, having dominated the Casuarina real estate market for several years. He was exactly the type of agent that Villawood were looking for - an unrivalled track record of sales, excellent knowledge of the lifestyle elements that attract buyers to the Tweed, and an amazing recall of the price history & the factors influencing the growth of the new Tweed Coast market. Peter was invaluable in assisting in the pricing of the 194 lots to be developed in Miramar’s seven stages. Most importantly, once appointed as estate manager, Peter’s rate of sales was way beyond all expectations, relying on his own personal database, Peter had 20 sales recorded every before the sales office opened. What distinguished Peter from other agents is his honesty, integrity & ability to get tasks completed. What he promises, he clearly delivers. He is highly regarded in the community and has developed an excellent rapport with buyers, solicitors and local residents. They know that Peter is always “on call” to assist with the range of matters that accompany building in a new estate. From a vendor’s perspective, it was reassuring to have Peter’s knowledge, experience, buyer feedback and reporting to assist in making decisions about pricing and marketing. Peter’s presence from start to finish was one of the key elements determining the success of Miramar. Now that a sell-out has been achieved, Peter has decided to stay working in the local market. He would certainly be an asset to any vendor seeking the services of a true professional.”

"Peter was absolutely reliable and professional at all times. Extremely knowledgeable about the local market and area, he always followed up with detailed reporting of open homes. At all times, he endeavoured to achieve the best possible price for our home. He was flexible and accommodating where and when necessary."

“While researching on www.realestate.com.au to purchase a house in the Salt, Seaside and Casuarina areas of the Tweed Coast, I noticed several houses for sale through Coastal Real Estate Group at Kingscliff. The real estate agent for these houses was Mr Peter Brussel. As I lived in Canberra, conducting remote assessments of the properties was made considerably easier through communication with Peter. Over the period of a couple of months, I built a solid rapport with Peter and when my work schedule permitted, visited the Tweed Coast to not only meet Peter first hand, but also to inspect several properties. I found Peter to be a friendly and pleasant person possessing a font of knowledge on the area, particularly with respect to future development plans, demographics, market trends, property covenants and general questions about the various houses available. During my deliberations Peter was always contactable via mobile and email and responded to my queries in a prompt professional manner. Although I did not end up purchasing a property through Peter, not through any fault of his but due in fact that none of the available houses were exactly what we desired, I thought Peter to manage the investment property we did buy due to the rapport we had established. I would have no reservation in recommending Peter as an agent to either purchase or rent a property.”

"A humble quiet achiever who gets the job done! I first had the pleasure of meeting Peter as my colleague at Coastal. After reluctantly deciding to return to Brisbane, it was an easy choice as to whose capable hands I was going to leave my most valuable asset in. As an experienced real estate agent my expectations were high and they were certainly met! Peter coordinated everything as I had returned to Brisbane and most importantly believed in the property! He achieved a record price in a very short time. Whilst the sale was stressful through no fault of his, Peter took it all in his stride and kept me sane through the process. I would have no hesitation in recommending Peter to anyone. Don't underestimate the quiet ones, years in the industry and suburb market knowledge is priceless."

“Peter’s vast experience in the Casurina market was certainly evident with the sale of our apartment at Cotton Beach, Casuarina. We chose Peter as our agent not only his unrivalled track record of sales in Cotton Beach and the Casuarina market generally but also on his totally professional manner. Although there were a few setbacks along the way, Peter never waned in his commitment to get the sale price we had hoped to achieve. Thank you for your hard work and perseverance.”

“I came across Peter online via realestate.com.au as I noted he was selling a lot of the ‘Beach Shacks’ in Casuarina. With his guidance & patience (which involved almost a year of discussion) he assisted us on the timing & approach to help us achieve an incredible result, which we did! He genuinely took excellent care of our property from a high rental short term lease to the sale & all his advice was spot on. He is a very resourceful man & understands the market very well. I am a very happy seller & would highly recommend Peter. A very patient & diligent man, my husband & I are very appreciative of the effort Peter put into our sale.”

“I would highly recommend Peter for a number of reasons. He is a pleasure to communicate with. He kept us in the loop the whole time and there was never any pressure to drop price even when negotiating. He is dedicated to getting your property sold and his commitment is second to none. His market knowledge of the area is also very extensive.”

“The recent sale of our property was managed by Peter at a very high standard. We have had positive past experiences with real estate agents but our experience this time was exceptional. Peter did everything to ensure that we received the best possible outcome, while at the same time providing honest and fair communication to potential buyers. In addition, his marketing and negotiation skills were excellent, informed by an in-depth knowledge of the area which he works and how best to market the property he was selling for us.”

“Peter has assisted me on a number of occasions over the years for various sales & purchases. His numerous years in the Kingscliff area has provided him with a wealth of knowledge. The reasons why I employ the services of Peter is that the information he provides can be relied upon, is realistic & not inflated to get your business. He is honest in the appraisal of your property & negotiates with your best interests in mind. I am happy to recommend Peter & will use him again in the future.”

"This was my pride house that I’ve unfortunately had to sell due to work commitments in Europe. I only gave Peter Brussel 2 weeks notice that I wanted to sell, I literally gave Peter the keys and the house and left Australia. His professionalism and commitment to sell my house was impressive but above all was his trust. It took about 16 months or so to sell, and in that time Peter had my best interest at all times, he had tenants and made sure the house was always at its best. I can’t fault Peter or the agency in any way. Many thanks guys."
