We recently came in contact with Col Hancox as we were looking for an investment property and Col was selling a DHA property in Brinsmead. After purchasing the property, we found Col to be easy to deal with plus professional and knowledgeable in explaining everything to us. From the time we signed the contract to buy to the day of settlement, Col kept us informed of what was happening all of the time which we appreciated as we live in Northern Territory. After a minor hiccup on the building report, Col addressed our concerns, sorted out everything from liaising with ourselves, the DHA, the seller and both solicitors, so that we could move forward in purchasing our property. We thank Col for all his help and recommend him to anyone considering buying a property.

My work required me to move from Brisbane to Cairns recently and I was looking to buy a house so that I could move straight in. After searching the internet and dealing with various agents over the phone without much luck I came into contact with Col Hancox and I was impressed by his helpful attitude, work ethic and knowledgeable approach to real estate in Cairns. With his local knowledge and understanding of my criteria Col was able to present properties that I would not otherwise have found and provided insights and information that were very valuable in my decision making process. On my brief trips to Cairns, Col was able to make the most of my time and before long we found the right property, which I know I would not have found otherwise. Col made the process easy, I have no regrets about my purchase, and no hesitation in recommending Col Hancox to anyone looking to buy property in Cairns.

My wife and I had been looking for investment properties for a while and had seen many on the market and met a number of agents. When we first met Col Hancox we were expecting your usual run of the mill real estate agent, but it became clear very quickly that he was different. Col’s approach to real estate is refreshing and welcoming, he not only has considerable knowledge about the industry and the properties he is presenting but also goes out of his way to understand what your requirements in a property are and does his best to satisfy those requirements. This helps a lot when trying to find the right property and we have now purchased two from Col. I am more than happy to recommend Col Hancox if you are buying or selling.
Jeff and Melissa Bennett SELLER
My husband and I feel fortunate to have come in contact with Col Hancox. From the outset Col was accommodating and upon outlining our list of ‘wants and needs’ in a property, he delivered. Upon introduction to our property, we were able to make a quick decision due, in part, to Col making us feel completely at ease, giving us all and any information quickly and honestly. Nothing was too much trouble, giving his time in length in a professional, courteous, gentlemanly and genuine manner, and throughout the term of the sale he checked in with us ensuring all out needs were met. He really does help create an enjoyable purchasing experience by making everything effortless; giving you the benefit of his experience while giving you the space you need to make your decisions. I would highly recommend Col, as our experience with him as our Agent was seamless. Thanks again, Col, you will definitely be our first call next time we buy or sell.
Trish and Jason Vacher SELLER
Since we met Col Hancox, he has been so informative, honest and dedicated, which resulted in selling our property in less than a week! Towards the closing of the sale, he managed the difficult situation for us very well. What I most appreciated was that he kept us informed on the situation and the progress. His gentle manners were also very favourable. I believe he will do this for his future clients.

Col Hancox assisted us to sell our unit in Cairns. Throughout the whole process, Col was totally professional yet at the same time was personable enough to put us at our ease and feel that we were dealing with a friend. The level of communication at all times was excellent. Col kept us informed of proceedings and was prepared to offer professional advice whenever we sought it. Nothing was ever too difficult. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Col Hancox to any prospective buyer or seller of property in the Cairns area. Thanks Col for an excellent outcome.
Sharon and Warren Lloyd SELLER
It is a pleasure for us to write this testimonial for Col Hancox as he went above and beyond the call of duty as the agent selling our property. None of us have come across an agent that is so thorough and professional as Col, at all times he kept us informed of how things were progressing, even if there was nothing to report! We would just like to thank Col for making the sale of this property during our difficult time, stress free for our family.

His professionalism, ethos and commitment to selling our home was second to none. We cannot falter anything during the entire process and Col made the experience for us a stress free, enjoyable one. We would recommend Col Hancox to anyone looking to sell their home.
Graham and Nicky Barrie SELLER
I have known Mr Col Hancox for more than 3 years in his capacity as an active Real Estate broker in the Cairns region. Fortunately, we stumbled over Col after following up on an internet advertisement for the first apartment we bought when he was representing the interstate owners. We lived in Sydney at that time, so Col was merely 'a voice on the phone' initially who quickly established that he was knowledgeable about the area, accommodating to narrow schedule opportunities for interstate buyers to travel here for viewings, straight-talking and had a realistic attitude to residential values. As first time buyers in QLD - which has very different Purchasing/Sales rules to other states - Col was able to walk us through the many hoops, long-distance. Also Col's recommendations for Conveyancers in Cairns have proved very solid, reliable and excellent value. Since 2013 I have purchased two (2) residential properties and sold one (1) residential property engaging Col's services each time. 'Return business' speaks for itself in the services industries. When the time next comes for property actions here in the Cairns region I will go directly to Col Hancox. Very satisfied Client
Mrs Susanne D. Cherubini SELLER
After months of looking to purchase our first home, having dealt with several different agents with no luck - we were lucky enough to come across Col Hancox in which we were very impressed with his friendly, professional approach! He was accommodating by helping us find something that met our wants & needs in a home. We found Col really easy to deal with and very helpful in explaining everything to us. He kept us informed every step of the way and made sure all our needs were met. Col really did go above & beyond throughout the whole process & made purchasing our first home an enjoyable experience. We cannot thank him enough & definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell

His expert knowledge of the local area and years of experience were most helpful in getting the right buyer.
