Memberships & Involvements



“Our family has nothing but praise and gratitude for the way that Nick and Baydn handled the sale of our parents’ property. Their proposal was so well researched and their choice of an Expressions of Interest campaign was perfect for a property that was last on the market 70 years ago. They showed the property’s potential, not only to developers but to people seeking a lifestyle change 100 metres from the beach. The whole campaign was flawless. They have great communication skills and a deep understanding of the market locally, nationally and internationally. We were in great hands and can’t thank Nick and Baydn enough for their tireless efforts and support along the way”. Peter & Julie Weir - 14 Memorial Avenue, Cotton Tree

“On behalf of CT Caloundra Pty Ltd, we would like to thank Colliers for their expertise throughout the entire process of the sales and marketing campaign of our multi-tenanted investment property at 54 Canberra Terrace, Caloundra. We found both Nick and Daniel to be excellent at communicating with our Consortium during the Expressions of Interest campaign, keeping us up to date in every aspect of the process. The knowledge the Colliers team have of the market and their ability to reach key investors locally, nationally and internationally is impeccable. We commend them on their diligence during the final negotiations, bringing six strong offers to the table, in the end obtaining the best possible result for us from a Sydney based family company. Thank you, Colliers Sunshine Coast, for your professionalism and we would have no hesitation in recommending Colliers to any owners considering selling their investment property”.
Kerry Heilbronn: CT Caloundra Pty Ltd

“I write to recommend the services of Nick Dowling and the Sunshine Coast team of Colliers International. Of the many agents I deal with, Nick stands out as an exceptional operator. He knows his marketplace intimately, providing frank, hones and reliable advice. In my role, I deal with real estate agents on a daily basis. I can honestly say that Nick is one of the best I have encountered and I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending his services” Simon Beesley – Manager Economic Development Queensland.

"Nick Dowling and Baydn Dodds and their team at Colliers Sunshine Coast were outstanding in selling our 5500m2 vacant block at Noosa Heads. They set out a clear plan for how the block would be marketed and sold, and worked hard for us. They left no stone unturned in trying to achieve the highest possible price for our holding. Nick and Baydn’s professionalism and courteousness made the experience a pleasant one. Above all, they were diligent in keeping contact with us so at each stage we felt well-informed about progress. I would recommend Colliers Sunshine Coast to prospective sellers in the highest possible terms. Now to contact Nick and Baydn for a celebratory lunch! Thanks again". (David Thannhauser)

“We appointed Baydn Dodds of Colliers International to market the balance stage of our Nambour subdivision via an EOI campaign. Baydn has an intimate knowledge of the local residential development market and was able to use this to add value to the process and to the end value we achieved for our property. Overall the campaign was run professionally and we are very happy with the result. Baydn has a personal approach and had no hesitation in going the extra mile to achieve a result ”. Alan Wheeler – Hillscorp

"We engaged Baydn Dodds & Nick Dowling at Colliers Sunshine Coast to market our rural residential, approved Buderim property which we owned for 35 years. Baydn & Nick really added value by having an excellent understanding of the buyer profile and were outstanding in marketing it through their special projects team. They are true commercial real estate professionals and achieved a great result". (Richard Cleaver | Business Development Manager BQO)
