The purchase and sale of properties will always be
critical times for vendors and purchasers alike. And in critical moments it is
vital to surround yourself with good people who have your back and provide the
support to safely traverse what can be demanding and emotional times, fraught
with confusion and hidden dangers.
We are so grateful that Reg Partington and Annette Adams
were in our corner in the recent sale of our Ballarat property, providing
timely, sage advice, expertly oiling the sale mechanism, massaging it to
fruition. And importantly constant, effective communication outlining potential
leads and competent assessment of prospective buyers.
It was a joy to watch these masters plying their trade
and we couldnâ€™t have been more delighted with the outcome and can happily and
confidently recommend them to other property sellers or buyers. If only the
rest of the industry aspired to the same ideals.

Debbie Nicholson and the Tourism Brokers Team
to express our appreciation to Debbie Nicholson for the recent sale of our
motel. Throughout the process Debbie was very
professional, attentive and appreciative of our situation which continued
throughout the entire process. To reach the great result we did was
a result of her dedication and commitment.
Thank you to David Head at
Tourism Brokers for the professional and personal service you
provided. David calls in on a regular basis
to touch base so this is why we chose him to act on our behalf.

To whom it may concern,
Recently, I went through the
process of purchasing a leasehold motel property. I went through various other
brokers, but I finally made contact with Tourism Brokers and especially a sales
executive by the name of Debbie Nicholson.
Initially, I wanted a
property in her area, but after that fell through I continued the process with
the help of Debbie. Eventually I managed to purchase a leasehold property
outside of Debbie's area. Even though it was out of her area she continued
to provide support during the whole process.
The service that I have
received from Debbie has been nothing short of extraordinary. She has put
in so much time and effort in, far beyond what was required and even expected.
At times the process was very stressful and complex, but I knew that I
could ring Debbie at any time and that she would have an answer for me or if
she didn't she would go out of her way to find the answer.
For all her effort, support
and advice I can not thank her enough and would have no hesitation recommending
her services to anyone else.
If you are thinking of selling your Motel call David Head at
Tourism Brokers for a very good broker no hassle at any time he will do what he
says with drive for your sale.

Both Andrew and myself would like to say thank you for all
of your hard work making our purchase of our Motel a very
smooth process. Your knowledge of the industry is outstanding, the advice
and referrals you gave us were a fantastic help to us. You
kept us in the loop about what was happening at all stages. The vendor is
happy with the result and we are very happy with our purchase. We will
certainly be contacting you when we are ready to sell and recommending yourself
to anyone thinking about buying or selling. Well done and thank you so
Andrew & Donna
decided to list my motel for sale I contacted Peter Gay of Tourism Brokers to
handle my sale.
Peter to be very well informed and professional during the whole process,
always keeping in touch with all parties to ensure everything from the exchange
of contracts through to settlement went smoothly. I would highly recommend
Peter to anyone buying or selling.
We have just sold our business through Tourism Brokers and the agent
Tony Jonhson could not be anymore helpful Tony is the real deal he works
for the Vendor but more importantly if
your looking for total professionalism look know further, in our many
years of working with sales people and brokers we cannot really fault
the service that Tony and his company supply, every attention to detail
is looked into, Tony works through all the processes - inspections
dealing with accountants- and clarifying the items for Lawyers and
helps significantly with recommendations for finance Tony is the true
all rounder he's in our opinion the best in the business so if your
seriously looking at purchasing a management rights business go with the
Best Tony Johnson Tourism Brokers.

It shows the true professional that you are, it's evident why it's
absolutely imperative that specialised agents are used as both Buyers and
sellers are emotionally and financially attached and to keep the Lawyers from
going off into the abyss and dragging everyone and their check books with them.
Both Belinda and I are truly grateful for you assistance and yes
we look forward to a coldie or two at settlement, thanks again Tony, you're a
real credit to Tourism Brokers, I doubt they could ask for better
Peter and Belinda
With reference to Sales Executive
My wife and I would
like to give our highest recommendation
Tony has recently sold our Management Rights business in Hervey Bay. I would like to thank
for making the
process of selling our business so hassle free. Tony kept us updated throughout
the entire process.
This is the second time we have
dealt with Tony firstly
to purchase and then to
sell. On both occasions Tony was extremely honest,
reliable, hardworking and courteous
at all times.
desiring to buy or sell Management Rights should use Tony with his in depth knowledge and know how, and the numerous professional and personal contacts
he has in the business, places
him in an enviable
position from where he can take
advantage of opportunities for his clients which other agents
can only dream about. I
believe this alone sets him apart from all the fellow agents
in the Management Rights market.
"... Our early searches were along the east coast then a business
associate made a wise statement "Coast for show, inland for dough".
After lots of late night discussions, we decided to put the emotion away
and look at the return. After all, this was a business decision.
Research showed Dubbo as a booming rural city. We contacted Mike
Phipps Finance Brokers to be sure what our finances would allow and then
contacted David Head from Tourism Brokers and
outlined our requirements - Had to be more than 20 rooms (otherwise
the balance of staff / you doing all the work gets tricky), had to be in
Dubbo or surrounds, had to have good access for guests to have optimum
experiences, preferably B&B, although restaurant was not out of the
question, we wanted to purchase and settle before Christmas (this was
September!) and of course, needed to be in our price range.
David was heading o/s so Michael Philpott took over the search and
arranged a group of inspections that fitted the bill. We inspected
everything put forward with an open mind. Michael spent hours following
us around, participating in discussions and stepping away when
appropriate. He was open and honest and we felt confident in his
We met with city council personal, the tourism info
staff and as many local as we could to get to a 'feel for the place'.
Our experience everywhere we went in the area was positive, so with
Michael as our guide and negotiator, he steered us through the process
and on 30 November 2015 we became the proud leaseholders of the Shearing
Shed Motor Inn Dubbo. Guess that means it's the kids turn for the road

WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
heartfelt gratitude for Tony Johnston
Finally we are settled!!! I just wanted to write with a HUGE thank
you. It's been one heck of a journey and
I honestly don't think it would have happened if not for Tony.
We met Tony in Hervey Bay when we listed
our property, Santalina, with him and several other Agents. We did eventually take it off the market - it
really wasn't a good time to be selling, but as Tony was the only agent who had
actually done any work other than just listing it on the internet, he was the
only choice when we decided to sell Dolphin Waters.
He found a buyer for the property fairly
quickly - a time of rejoicing, and settlement was set for April
2015. All the Due Diligence went through
fine, until just before settlement, when the buyers lawyers discovered that an
Extension Agreement hadn't been signed.
Everyone was in agreement that is was an oversight - someone in the Body
Corporate office had a human moment. It
happens. And the plan was to get the
document signed and then ratified at an EGM.
So we were at stalemate. The buyers wanted to buy. We wanted to sell. Our lawyers and the buyers' lawyers were both
on the same page too. If Tony hadn't
jumped back into the fray at that time our banks would have foreclosed due to lack
of security. Everything we have worked
for would have been lost.
Tony, independently consulted another
lawyer and subsequently found a way around the stalemate. He spoke with us, with the buyers, with all
the lawyers involved, with the Body Corporate and brokered an agreement which,
although not the best terms for anyone, was workable for everyone.
Throughout all this Tony kept the buyers'
spirits up; helped them keep focus on the ultimate goal - buying Dolphin
Waters; arranged several changes in purchase price commensurate with the
various happenings and generally kept the ball rolling.
There were a few hiccups before Settlement
was finally able to go ahead, but I just wanted to say that we found Tony to be
an amazing Agent who has gone over and above any expected level of
service. Without his work in bringing
this sale to a good conclusion we would be in a disastrous position. Mal and I would not hesitate, at any time, in
recommending Tony with the highest possible gratitude and praise.
With best wishes
SUE AND MAL
I would like to say a few words about Peter Middlebrook who was acting as my agent for the sale of two properties.
I would like to thank Peter Middlebrook for his assistance. It was an absolute pleasure working with him.
Peter is a professional, upfront, and honest man with great attention to customer service for both vendor and purchaser.
He was able to help us sell our business, he managed the whole process - viewing, negotiation and settlement, with great professionalism. He ensured that both parties were well taken care of.
Very happy with outcome and would recommend Peter Middlebrook to anyone.
Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the team as well.
Thank you Barry for all your help in making our move to Ibis as easy as possible. Drop in for a cuppa if you are ever passing by.
All the best

Dear Tourism Brokers,
We would like to thank Tony Johnson for his genuine honesty,
support and guidance in assisting Ty and I with our first Management Rights purchase.
From our first meeting with Tony Johnson we felt we would be
in good hands having Tony as our Management Rights Broker - and we were right! THANK
YOU very much Tony for your guidance and support . Your genuine care with your
clients is a service that is hard to find these days!
We would highly recommend Tony Johnson to

It is a real pleasure to have this

David, good morning to you.
I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas
with your family and I also hope that you make many sales in 2014 and the year
is full of health and happiness.
At the changeover of the Pines Motel in
Armidale, I spoke to you about the manner in which Debbie Nicholson handled all
aspects of the sale, both before and after.
Over many years of buying a selling
property, my wife and I have come in contact with many agents, some good and
I will say to you that this lady is the
best I have come into contact with.
Her attention to detail, her super
quick responses to emails and telephone calls were nothing short of
Debbie was so helpful with us as well
as the outgoing owner, that the sale, we feel, went as smoothly as any sale can
go. Our solicitor, Chris OBrien at
Coffs Harbour commented many times that it was one of the smoothest sales he
has handled and I have no doubt whatsoever that a lot of that had to do with
David, I do not want to go overboard
about my comments but fair dinkum, Debbie was very, very good.
In years to come when we sell, or buy
again, if Debbie is doing what she does now, she will be my first point of

told of my comments, also my comments told to whoever they should be told to at

We fell in love with the Pages River Caravan Park at Murrurundi, NSW.
When the park came up for Auction we were in Queensland and did not want to
travel to NSW for the Auction just to be outbid, so asked David if we could
Skype. He readily agreed and during the Auction his wife held the laptop so
that we could see what was going on. Bidding on Skype and also being on the
mobile at the same time was intense, but Davidâ€™s constant reassurance was much
appreciated. We were the highest bidders and now own our perfect piece of real
estate, now known as Murrurundi Caravan Park.
We highly recommend David Head to
any Vendor or Purchaser. He has great experience in the industry and really
cares. He is softly persistent in that the purchaser doesnâ€™t feel pressured in any
way, and gives great advice on the property or business, whether it be negative
or positive, so that the purchaser has all the facts prior to making a

I would like to commend the service
provided by Debbie Nicholson during our protracted search for a Motel suited to
us, our situation and our location.
After being in the motel game for 20
years, we would have to say, it has been the best service we have ever had from
a broker and I tell you, we know them all, but she did not hesitate to
investigate and acquire any information that we requested, within hours in most
cases and that was passed on to us without any delay.
We have already recommended her to potential
customers and will continue to do so.
We all do good jobs but recognition is
short coming. Both Ken & myself have taken

We would like to sincerely thank you for your work in selling our motel.
We've only been in the motel industry for 9 months and to be frank we
haven't enjoyed it. We made a mistake and we wanted to get out without too much
delay. We listed the motel with four motel brokers and while some introduced a
few lookers who were not really interested and wasted our time, you
took the time to select only genuine people and your client has now purchased
our business. This was the first and only client you introduced.
My wife and I have felt confident and comfortable with your handling of
our sale from day one. You have been totally honest and you have also worked hard to overcome a
few hitches along the way. It has been a difficult time for us but we thank you for achieving a very
fair result and for making the process as easy as possible.

Just a quick note to thank you for such an informative and enlightening
seminar that your company put together. Every element was extremely
interesting, especially Tony from Holmans, and David from Tourism
Brokers. Everybody that attended seemed to get so much more out of the

information you supplied is invaluable.
Thank you again for a great couple of days.
