Born and raised on the beautiful Sunshine Coast Dan Hawes’s outgoing spirit took him on a 12 year overseas adventure incorporating over 40 countries, backpacking Asia, camper vanning Europe, riding his motorbike through Latin America, foster parenting special needs children in the US and even living in Inuit communities in the high Arctic of Canada.

Living, working, travelling and experiencing different cultures and ways of life have given him a true understanding of people as well as life around the world.

He and his wife Claudia returned home to the Sunshine Coast 6 years ago and he has been selling real estate ever since. When asked what brought him back to the Sunshine Coast, he said “In all of my travels I have been privileged to see many walks of life. Although there are many beautiful places on earth, the Sunshine Coast is definitely one of them! I have always loved the Coast, I can’t think of a better place on Earth to raise a family, we are truly lucky to call this amazing place home!” Dan has a four year old Son, Shayden, and a 2 year old Daughter, Kiyana, who he utterly adores.

When asked why he chose a career in real estate his response was simple “I love interacting with people, negotiating and getting the best outcome for my vendors time and time again. I believe honesty and a true desire to help people is the secret to success”.

With real estate in his blood and passion in his eye, Dan has the attention to detail and proven successes that will get you top dollar for your property!

Excellent agent and experience

Even though Dan was the seller’s agent, he was fantastic to deal with. He was professional, invested the time to follow up on my initial request about the property I ended up buying, provided and explained relevant information about the property, showed the property at a time convenient for me. I had been looking for a property for over 5 months with 2 unsuccessful attempts. Dan made it easy and I would highly recommend him as an agent. It was a pleasure to do business with him.

Excellent experience
The idea of buying a property from another state was daunting, but Dan's friendly professionalism made the experience an easy one. Dan kept me informed at every step and his guidance was very helpful. I can highly recommend being looked after by Dan.

Top agent!
Dan has been a pleasure to work with! We could not fault him at all. He made the buying and selling process easy for us.


Knowledgeable, Professional and Approachable
We could not have asked for a better agent or result from Dan. He is professional with outstanding communication skills and knowledge of the local area and the way he interacted with us as the sellers was excellent. We knew what was happening every step of the way which made us feel supported in the knowledge that he knew what he was doing. The results speak for themselves. We would certainly recommend Dan and his team to anyone looking to sell in the area!
