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 selling experience!!!

Dan was recommended to me by a friend.. His extensive knowledge about the Real Estate Industry put my mind at ease in the stressful process of selling my house.

Dan was very professional and his persistence and belief in the value of my home was evident in his attitude which made me confident he would achieve the best outcome.

Honest, committed, reliable, Fantastic communicator, high level of market knowledge and great person.

I would highly recommend Dan to be your Agent. I brought a property from him and was so impressed with him that I also sold a property through him. He is a calm person and a always listens to what you want and applies that to achieve a great outcome. If he misses a call he will get back to you ASAP. Give Dan a call to find the property you wish for or to sell your property. You will find that call a benefit to you.

Incredibly supportive and positive agent.

Dan was a pleasure to work with. He was professional and stepped us through the whole process in a friendly and kind manner. As first home buyers we had a lot of questions, but Dan was there for us through every step and always available to help. We loved working with Dan and can't recommend him highly enough.

Dan made an experience, that understandably can be very stressful, as smooth as possible! ☺️ My experience, with Dan, was exceptional! Buying a home is probably the most stressful and expensive and confusing process most people will go through in a lifetime.
From the moment I firstly spoke to Dan on the phone, to meeting him in person, Dan was so easy and friendly to speak with.
Dan had an extraordinary market knowledge and communication skills..... which was very much appreciated considering the crazy property market we are in at the moment.
Dan went above and beyond with his communication with me and any questions or concerns that I may have had. I have 3 daughters with all different schedules and Dan didn’t hesitate to accommodate showing the girls the home when it worked for them.
Dan consistently came across in a professional and friendly manner the entire time and continues to offer support even once the house was sold.

I can’t speak highly enough

Thank you, Dan
