About The Business

Thornton Real Estate was one of the longest established, and well respected real estate firms in the Ipswich area with offices in Ipswich, Goodna, and Springfield, and nearly 2000 managements in the rent roll.

How We Sold The Business

This business is not for everyone by virtue of its sheer size. We needed to find an ambitious, driven buyer with the financial capacity to raise capital and transact on what was to become the record real estate transaction in the SW Qld corridor. The buyer owned and operated a number of real estate businesses (including two offices in Ipswich), so they understood, and already operated in the local market.

Client Testimonials
Dear John I want to thank you for handling the sale of my business Thornton Real Estate which comprised three sales and property management offices, sixty staff, and approx. 2000 rental properties. I am very confident that if you were not the broker, the sale would never have happened. You invested so much time is the sales process and saved the deal time and time again - the sale took months to negotiate and then months to settle. I appreciate the outstanding effort and help you gave me, even after the settlement of the sale.
