Michelle Wade-Cooper

After entering the real estate market in Hervey Bay as a salesperson in 2001 I have worked hard to attain over $100 million in settled sales and built up a solid referral base of both sellers and buyers. I believe this has been achieved by always dealing in an honest and ethical manner.

In 2004 I became co-owner and sales manager of Carter Cooper Realty and am extremely proud of the way in which the agency has become a market leader in such a short time. Actively involved in sales of both residential and commercial property, my philosophy is simple, ‘When the Sellers and the Buyers are both smiling, then it’s my turn to smile’.
