About Us
Nanango Real Estate first opened its doors in 1975 and is the longest established real estate agency in Nanango, as well as the only independently owned and operated office in town. We feel that being a Real Estate salesperson in a small country town means you have constant contact with the buyers and sellers. When shopping at the supermarket we meet our buyers and seller are going through the next checkout. It means we do get to make good friends as we are able to remain in contact with our buyers who over the years have become repeat customers when they sell and repurchase. We are very community minded and are a part of many of the local committees in town. We can help those moving to an area to make friends by introductions into clubs etc.

So if you'd like to purchase, invest or rent property in Nanango, our experienced and friendly staff would be only too happy to help you!
