Ann, her husband John and son Andrew run a cattle grazing enterprise about 25 kms from Coolah.
In 2006 we decided to buy a house in Coolah. I was talking to my tennis partner about the house purchase and he said I needed to talk to Shelley Piper who was at that time working for an agency in Coolah. Donn said that she would look after me well and if she didn't then I should tell him because she was his daughter!!
This was my first experience with Shelley and she did indeed look after us.
Shelley showed us a few houses and when we decided to make an offer on one, the negotiating was done and we bought the house we wanted.
In 2010 we had to move away for work and decided to rent out the house. Shelley arranged the lease and the bond for us, but we thought we could handle the management of our investment ourselves. How hard could it be!
That was a bad idea !!
After twelve months of trouble, we asked Shelley to take care of leasing the house. Since then we have had no problems.
This year we decided to sell the Coolah house and buy one in Quirindi as Doug was retiring. Once again Shelley was the one we turned to. We asked her to help us to buy a house in Quirindi. Shelley acted as a Buyer's Agent, contacted the local agents and arranged viewings. Shelley then managed all the negotiating on the house we decided on , so it was very stress free. Shelley did an excellent job.
As for the house in Coolah, Shelley advised us a suggested sale price. We were barely settled with the new house when we had offers for the Coolah house. It was sold really quickly and we were thrilled. All went smoothly and within a short time everything was settled.
Thanks to Shelley, Annie and Jacqui, at Piper Real Estate, who are always there to help. Special thanks also to Ann, our Property Manager, for her attention on the management of the house in Coolah and for always being at the end of the phone when I needed you.
Piper Real Estate will look after you!

We would like to express our gratitude to you for your efforts in securing the sale of our house in Coolah.
Throughout the time that you had it listed for sale, your knowledge of the local market always made us feel confident that we would obtain a positive outcome. You regularly communicated with us about what was happening and kept us well informed following inspections and during each stage of the sale process.
We would also like to thank your Property Manager, Ann, who was successful in obtaining excellent tenants for us and managed the tenancy in a professional manner with regular and detailed inspection reports.
Once again, we thank you for your assistance in achieving a successful sale.

Ron and I were delighted to discover Coolah and equally pleased to team up with Shelley and Ann of Piper Real Estate to find the perfect investment property that we could just as gladly call our own home some day. Ron and I together have lived and owned homes in the inner city, suburban and rural communities of Australia, and previously I had owned a home overseas. We have had a wide range of experiences in searching for, buying, selling and renting homes. This is as good as it gets!

Shelley, I would like to thank you for the very attentive service you have provided me over the past year, not only in selling my main home but also for looking after the rental properties on an ongoing basis.
You have been so obliging and I have appreciated your efforts.
You and your Property Manager, Ann Rumbel, are great assets to the town of Coolah and I know with your commitment to great service and the knowledge of the area, your business can only go from strength to strength. Thank you once again for all your help and I wish you the very best for the future.
