Craig Greer-Smith is considered one of the Best Gold Coast Real Estate Agents. When it comes to selling your property on the Gold Coast for the Maximum Price with Minimum Stress and a Low Competitive Commission, there are none better.
Craig is a very experienced real estate agent that knows the Gold Coast property market extremely well. Aside from the many sales for clients, he has personally bought and sold over 60 of his own properties over the last 25 years so fully understands the dynamics of the selling process and what the vendor goes through when deciding to sell their property and which sales agent to choose.
Digital marketing and the online real estate websites have totally changed the process in how you can market and advertise your property for sale. This means that the skills that really make a difference today for selling agents are negotiating skills, trustworthiness, great communication and commitment to ensure the vendor gets the best price possible for the sale of their property at a fair commission rate.
Before entering the property industry 25 years ago, Craig was a senior maths teacher and those skills of managing peoples expectations, understanding their needs, the importance of data and attention to detail have been incredibly useful in the property market today. That time in education also taught him to deal with people from all walks of life. Take nothing for granted and listen closely.
As the Managing director of one of the Gold Coast’s most respected real estate agencies, Craig is focused on consistently providing genuine ethical advice and service to his clients. Real Estate sales is an industry crowded with big egos, high commissions and million dollar incomes where the agent is mostly about getting a sale to earn another large commission. This is the type of sales persona Craig avoids at all costs.
If you would like to engage a genuinely straight forward person that knows how to obtain the best sales results for you with the least amount of marketing costs and a fair sales commission, give Craig a call today on 0414342016 . At the very least you will get a straight and honest assessment of your situation.

After 20 years educating the community as a local teacher, as well as working with charities such as World Vision Australia and ‘Passion for Peace’, Robyn Wigmore began her career in real estate as the Gold Coast property market in early 2008. Now a national award winning agent, Robyn first became known as an area expert around Mudgeeraba and surrounds (the 4213 area), but her circle quickly expanded to the entire Gold Coast thanks to both her local knowledge and her habit of picking up lifelong clients. Famous for going above and beyond, and a prolific relationship builder, Robyn values the needs and aspirations of her buyers, sellers and prior clients who inevitably become friends.
The adage that underpins her approach to property is that business moves at the speed of trust. The majority of her business is repeat or referral – meaning clients use her services again and again and recommend Robyn’s expertise and service to their friends, family and acquaintances. Robyn is famous for her enthusiasm, energy and positivity – certainly qualities that have seen her clients through the GFC.
Honesty and integrity are fundamental to her being. She strongly believes that people should not feel like objects in a sales process. Even if you’re still a long way off selling your home, don’t be afraid to contact her – she’d love to hear from you!
“Selling homes, not houses.
Building relationships, not databases”.

As founder of the business in 1992, Mike Gray provides the “essence” from which a great team culture has flourished and the vision which has lead First National Nerang to be a highly successful and truly unique, customer-centred organisation.
Today, it is regarded as one of Australia’s model agencies, recognised by both state and national real estate institutes as agency of the year several times, not only for its sales performance, but for its innovative business practices in all areas of agency operation.
Originally from Melbourne, Mike’s family of 7 migrated to Townsville when he was 10 years old. He spent his teen years playing Australian Rules football and excelling at club athletics. Attending Pimlico High School, he spent 4 years in the Army Cadet Corps reaching the rank of Company Sergeant Major. This inspired him to join the Australian Regular Army in 1974 where he became member of the Royal Australian Signal Corps.
Retiring from the Army in 1979, Mike immediately commenced his real estate career, working in Caboolture, Bribie Island, the Whitsundays and ultimately the Gold Coast.
Mike’s only break from real estate was a 3 year period in the mid 80’s as a major account executive for the TNT group and Anset Air Freight, but he missed the challenge and excitement of the real estate industry. However he was not prepared to return to the industry working under the same old poor business practices that represented the majority of agencies back then, so he decided to establish his own with a totally unique business model.
Combining many of the skills, disciplines and experience gained from the Army, the Corporate world and his time as a real estate salesperson in the 80’s, Mike set about forming an agency with a focus on superior customer service and client communication. He implemented comprehensive systems, procedures, processes and marketing strategies, supported in every way possible by use of leading edge technology.
The plan involves a continual process of reinventing every aspect of the business and to remain at the forefront in the use of technology, the internet and communication. Mikes objective is simple; and that is to nurture the agent client relationship so as to grow the business through repeat business from satisfied clients.
Whilst Mike’s business model continues to be a resounding success, he considers his greatest accomplishment to be the people within the business and their willing to continually learn and improve their skills. As a firm believer in continued learning and professional development, Mike has become a well known figure in the real estate training fraternity. He is the chairman and founder of the First National’s ’South East Queensland Training Academy’ SEQA ( www.seqa.com ). SEQA provides regular training opportunities for all salespeople, property managers and support staff of the 70 SE Queensland First National offices.
Mike has been a “local” in the Nerang area since 1987. Although Mike and his family enjoy the beaches, boating and the many Gold Coast attractions, it’s the easy paced lifestyle of Nerang region that makes it their number one choice of places to live.
