Meet Dan Hawes

Dan Hawes was the absolute professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with when selling my unit. Nothing was a problem and Dan was always available and happy to chat and answer any question or query I had. I cannot recommend Dan highly enough to anyone looking to buy or sell property. Thank you.

Dan Hawes was just a pleasure to work with. He is a great guy - honest and none of that real estate smooze that I just hate. He managed my sale in a very professional way and managed to get a contract after the first open house. Dan puts a lot of time into the preparation for going on the market and he organised everything while keeping me fully in the loop. When I had a major issue with the property 2 days before settlement Dan went above and beyond to resolve the issue (which was not really his problem to fix but as I live along way away I was pretty helpless). Thanks Dan - a great experience!

Dan Hawes was very pleasant to work with. He had good professional knowledge of real estate and values in the area. He was very approachable and helpful with all the “small stuff” involved in selling a property and we appreciated that. Thanks Dan.

What can I say, I have been dealing with Dan Hawes for about 2 years now and have found him to be very professional, attentive, ie he listens to what MY needs are, and is not pushy, as a lot of insecure agents out there are. I will be using Dan for my future dealings in Real Estate in this area. I would also recommend Dan to my many friends should they require good, decent, honest Real Estate Agent, a rare find these days.

It was a pleasure to have Dan Hawes as our agent. Dan was always very professional and nothing was too much trouble. He was always positive and kept us informed of the development of our contract all along the way. We have had 2 properties with Dan and would not go to another agent.

I recently listed my Investment Apartment for Sale with Dan Hawes at First National Coastal, Maroochydore.
Dan was a pleasure to deal with, always prompt at returning calls and I was kept up to date at all times with both progress on the listing and documentation. I was very impressed with the manner in which Dan dealt with my tenant and the Manager of my property.
I received a sale within the first week of listing and I would have no hesitation in recommending Dan and First National Coastal for all your sales and purchasing requirements.
Best regards

Dan Hawes has a relaxed and calm approach in dealing with any questions or issues that came up during whole purchase process. A great communicator and nothing was too much trouble!! When I'm ready to buy again he will be the first person I contact.

As a buyer, dealing with Dan Hawes has suprisingly been very good.  Initially we knew straight away we going to put an offer in to the house we bought off Dan. After the initial phone call everything flowed extremly smoothly. All explanations were clear and easy to follow.  We had a few odd balls throwen at him but he handled them in a calm and easy to get along manner. 
Overall I do recommend Dan, keep up the good work!

Christopher W

We have known Dan Hawes now for 2 years. We purchased our house from him 2 and a half years ago, and now we have also sold a house through Dan. He is the most honest and reliable agent I know. Dan has become a close friend to us through his knowledge of realestate. We highly recomend Dan as an agent to buy or sell through. Thank you Dan.

I met one of your sales specialists Dan Hawes last year, when he came with a senior colleague, to appraise the apartment I’m currently living in for market.
I was impressed by their professional appearance, conduct & transparency. 
I mentioned that I would be looking to buy in the near future. Dan took my contact details & kept me “in the loop” weekly for months, of what was new &, appropriate to my needs, coming onto the market.

When it came time for me to invest in a property myself early in the year, I didn’t feel the need spending the time & headworks chasing up other RE agencies.
Having previously been in the Real Estate sales industry myself, my high expectations were met, not only by Dan but, also his colleague Shane.
Always punctual, prompt follow ups with answers to my questions. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the whole process ran “smooth as”.
Plus, I got my favourite chocolates on settlement!!

I have no hesitation in recommending First National & their professional team to anyone wishing to appoint them exclusively for purchasing or selling Real Estate.

Yours Sincerely 
Clare W

I was more than happy with the dealings I had with Dan Hawes. I was overseas for quite a bit while the house was on the market and Dan went above and beyond in keeping me updated and dealing with things I was unable to do while being overseas. I would highly recommend him as If you are selling your home.

As a second time seller with Dan Hawes, he again delivered the goods. He handled all aspects of the sale with top level service, and ALWAYS provided timely feedback throughout the sale.

His advice was straight-shooting, and he has a very genuine, respectful manner. He is also backed by a very efficient team in the back office, so everything went extremely smoothly. I'd use him again for sure.

Dan Hawes is a very experienced and pleasant agent. My recent purchase of a very popular townhouse was made easy with Dan's immediate availability to set up an inspection at short notice and provide answers to my questions without delay.

He was juggling an extraordinary number of enquiries into the property, and I have no doubt his competence and professionalism enabled him to handle them all with ease. It was a pleasure to buy a property through Dan.

Dan Hawes was a great agent. He had all the answers to the questions we were asking, and if he didn't, he had the answer to us by the next day.

An agent willing to let you view the property on a Sunday because you couldn't make the Saturday open house is an agent you want to buy from.

We highly recommend Dan and the team at First National Mooloolaba.

Courtney R

Dan Hawes demonstrated a professional and friendly approach when selling my apartment. He kept me well informed throughout the process, enabling me to feel comfortable and confident with his expertise.

Dan ensured everything was handled with ease and recommended local lawyers who were also very professional when organising the handover.

I would highly recommend Dan.

My husband and i have been putting off listing our property for sale as we were not ready to go through the process. Engaging First National and working with Dan Hawes made the entire process stress free and seamless. Dan is very professional and kept us updated through every step in the process. Would highly recommend Dan to manage the sale of your property. He exceeded our expectations with a sale within 2 weeks with a fantastic sale price.

Dan Hawes was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. He went out of his way to help us secure the perfect unit, he drove us around as we are from Sydney, and also took time to show us the local area.

We sold our property last year, and talked to many agents before we chose Dan Hawes to assist us in the Sale.

Dan was very professional with his approach. He had such good advice on how to get the best out of the sale, he was personable and real.

Our house sold within being on the market for a week, and we got a much better price than expected!

I would recommend Dan to anyone considering selling their home. He's a fantastic agent!

Would certainly recommend Dan Hawes to any propsective sellers.

Dan was extremely professional and honest throughout the whole process, he was knowledgeable about the current market and didn't overstate the value of the property just to get the listing.

The property was priced correctly and my wife and I were happy with the result. He was also very considerate of the needs of the tenant in the property and effectively balanced our desire to sell the property and tenants desire to have minimum disruption. Thanks Dan.

My partner and I employed the assistance of First National Mooloolaba to find an investment unit in the Mooloolaba area. During the process of finding a suitable unit we were constantly updated with suitable properties which fitted our profile and are now proud owners of a property.

Our thanks to all the First National staff, in particular our agent Dan Hawes. No pressure selling, constant contact and a most friendly experience. We have now employed First National to manage leasing of our property.

Thanks First National and Dan.
