MaryAnne Law is an exceptiona agent who handled our property purchase with the utmost professionalism and was such a lovely person to deal with.  She communicated clearly and at important times and clarified many questions we had.  The whole experience of purchasing this property was positively enhanced through our dealings with MaryAnne.

Jo Wade


Pagan is approachable, prompt and professional.  We live interstate and she manages our property as if it was her own home.  Her communication, recommendations and prompt action on issues removes any stress in renting out our home and fills us with confidence that our property is in the right hands!  I would highly recommend Pagan to anyone looking for a professional property manager.

Vendor Review


Ronda was always professional, always advocating for our property.  After certain weeks of open houses we would say no to certain pricing, Ronda would go back in batting for our price.

Kristen and Ian

Jan Lee made selling our home stress-free, honestly, the only thing we had to think about was packing up. We were kept up to date throughout the whole process, so we never felt out of the loop. We ever sell again, there is only one agent we will go through and that is Jan Lee, without a doubt. Thank you, Jan for everything.

Ronda was so nice to deal with and provides a very professional service.  I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Beryl & Ian Davey


Annette is an honest, reliable & down to earth agent. After meeting with several other agents Annette stood out above the rest. Annette made the experience easy & she was very helpful with the staging process. I would not go through anyone else to sell a property, in our opinion Annette is the top agent in Townsville.

Jeremy Mar Fan

Santo, Pagan and the team at Explore have been amazing at managing my two properties.  Took care of everything including dealing with the insurance company while I was away.  Would recommend to anyone.


Nelly Bay

MaryAnne handled our land purchase competently and without fuss.  She was able to handle complexities related to title conditions, easements, price negotiations and sellers listed with other agents in a timely manner and without a saleesy presentment.  I would happily recommend her to friends.

Great Agent

North Ward

Very friendly and knows the Townsville real estate market.


Was a hassle free experience renting through Explore Property. As a tenant, Pagan Lackenby was my Property Manager. I found her to be professional yet very approachable, knowledgeable and most importantly efficient. I have seen it all when it comes to real-estates and their property management, renting for 2 decades, 10 of those years in Townsville. I highly recommend Explore Property as an agency to lease a home through.

Sian Roberts


Great communication, very professional and approachable.  Would highly recommend.  Pagan was an absolute star preparing and arranging the right property for us to rent.



Pagan from Explore Property Townsville took over management of our home some 6 months ago. She provided a detailed condition report of the property to the landlord (we are tenants) making recommendations on essential repairs and maintenance that had been overlooked for months previously. The owners accepted her recommendations and we have renewed our lease at the property as a direct result of her attention to detail and focus on creating a positive tenant experience.

MaryAnne helped us find a property on Magnetic Island.  We first made contact before flying up to view the properties we had in mind but an astute MaryAnne showed us some properties she thought would match our requirements as well. 

The result was that MaryAnne found us that house in a considered manner.  Our daughter, who accompanied us, became unwell and MaryAnne kindly took her back to the ferry to catch the boat back to the mainland where she lives.  We found MaryAnne very considerate and knowledgeable of the island and as such she was able to answer any question we asked.  We got the opportunity over Christmas to come back and look again at the house with MaryAnne before settlement.  On arriving at our new house following settlement, MaryAnne's consideration was amply demonstrated when she called by to check all was well and she was able to guide us to a local mechanic to fix up a small issue with our car which had developed that morning.  MaryAnne's professionalism and integrity shone through throughout the process.

It gives me great pleasure to be able to write a review for Ronda.  She was with me every step of the way and gave me some great advice and tips on being able to sell my property with the minimum of fuss.  If I ever had to sell another property I would definitely look Ronda up for the same skill she was able to use to help me out.  Thanks again!

Marianne Mackie

I found Annette to be the most wonderful agent, she kept me up to date at all times, helped me endlessly when a few problems arose, talked to me on a regular basis, and made what could of been a very stressful time bearable. I would certainly recommend her highly, and would not hesitate to use her in any future real estate transactions. Thank you Annette. Very Happy Seller.

MaryAnne and team were great to work with, understanding and very accommodating.  Professional, absolutely recommend them.

Very helpful as our situation was very challenging as we were in another city.  She was honest and fair.  Thank you Annette.

Kelly Becker

Very fast and efficient, helped me as fast as possible to find a place to call home.  I would recommend these guys to everyone, thank you.

In this unsteady housing market selling a house requires skill.  Ronda stepped up to the plate and proved how it could be done.

A Huge Welcome to Pagan to the Explore Property Team. We have had the pleasure of assisting Pagan and her Landlords previously to Joining Santo and Bonny at Explore. Your commitment and dedication to Landlords, Tenants and Trade Staff is a key Value that is hard to find. Shout out to anyone looking for a committed Property Manager, LOOK NO FURTHER !!

Judith McIntyre

When we were thinking about selling our property, we contacted 4 agencies for advice on price etc. Dean Dank was the best. Thorough and approachable, he always kept us in the loop. He was there with us when we decided on a realistic selling price which was acceptable to us and he was very close to the mark. Our property sold in 3 and a half weeks. Thank you Dean for your professional handling of the sale and the friendly assistance of your sales team. We”ll be recommending Explore Property to anyone who is seeking to sell their property.

Andrew Henricksen

I found Annette from Explore Property very awesome. Annette had a wide range of knowledge of the area and the property which made my purchasing process very straight forward.

I would recommend any buyer or seller to use Explore Property Townsville, a very professional business.


Giovanni went above and beyond to cater to all my needs. He was thorough, very quick to reply and made things happen super quick. Made the purchase process super easy. Best in the Biz!



Ronda Hansen is a skilled professional with a wealth of knowledge in Real Estate.  She helped me sell my property in record time with no fuss.  We received wonderful support from her and her team with clear communication through the whole process.

Why? After being constantly taken for granted by my last Property Manager, I have found the Property Manager dedicated to me, (Trina Desreaux) has just been fantastic. Not only taking our rental on, but also looking after the claim from the floods and dealing directly with the insurance company on my behalf, Explore Property and Trina, have been Great! If this is what the usual service is like, we will be clients for some time.


I am thankful to have found such an honest Agent. Not only is Jan Lee super efficient but she went way above my expectations in her service she supplied. Thank you Jan Lee

Nerida and Christopher Bonner

Highly recommend Annette to any seller. She is extremely organised and responds very quickly to any communication. The same day I called her for an appointment she had already done a market appraisal and dropped it off to my house without me even asking for it. Every phone call text or email I sent her was answered almost immediately. She worked with us respectfully in setting our sale price and fought hard to get us as close as possible. Would 100% choose Annette again in the future if the need arises!

Halwyn Bubb

From my first meeting with Annette Rowlings I was impressed by her friendly, competent manner in which she outlined the intended procedure to be followed by Explore Property whom I had engaged to handle the proposed sale by auction of my property at South Townsville. During the period leading up to the auction date, Annette kept me informed of the number and interest shown by possible bidders who had responded to the auction advertising and inspected the property to appreciate for themselves what had been attractively shown in pictures and extremely interesting media releases. Annette left no stone unturned in making me aware of what to expect at the auction itself and was there to greet both my wife and me on our arrival at the venue. The very pleasing end result of the auction for me was largely due to a very caring Annette Rowlings. Her after sale follow up has also been valued and a great comfort. I warmly commend her and Explore Property led by its leader, Andrew Acton, a top man in Real Estate business, to any other property vendor. You could not do better than to entrust the sale of your property into their hands.


Michelle and Scott Weaver

Annette took care of everything from day one and made the whole process as easy as possible for us. We had no idea what we were doing but Annette came and talked to us in plain English, gave great advice and even assisted with the styling of our house. We always knew what was going on every step of the way and Annette was always happy to answer our (sometimes stupid) questions. She worked very hard to get potential buyers through and in the end achieved the price we were hoping for. Overall Annette was fantastic, we’d have no hesitation recommending her. Professional, knowledgeable and very helpful – you won’t find better!



Jason Hoare

I’ll start by saying congratulations on your promotion!  I’m sad to see you move on from taking care of us and our house but am very excited for you.  If you have been as helpful and professional with everyone as you have been with us, then I’m sure we aren’t the only ones feeling this way.  I’ve got no doubts they’ve got the right person for your new role and we wish you all the best and hope it goes well.  Once again thanks for all you have done for us, you have been an essential part of making our first time being landlords a very positive experience.

Gavin & Kate

Would recommend Santo to anyone wanting to sell, rent or buy a house. Great honest knowledge, no making up numbers to obtain your business or set unrealistic expectations. Thanks again.


Nelly Bay

I had to sell my parent's property on Magnetic Island as part of a deceased estate and I live in Sydney.  Therefore I needed an agent who I could trust as there were a number of necessary repairs and changes to be made to the house to make it sale-able.  MaryAnne simplified all of this.  She had the contacts, she knew the market, the price she advised was on the money, she always kept me informed, and her personal manner and work ethic made me feel that I was not just another client.  I was always totally confident that MaryAnne would achieve the best possible outcome even with the added issue of having to wait for grant of probate and, of course, she did.  She's nothing short of amazing; absolutely head and shoulders above all others in the industry.


Horseshoe Bay

Outstanding service that clearly is the best of Magnetic Island agencies.  Explore Property has been able to find purchasers for my properties in record times and always at full asking price.  MaryAnne has integrity, and treats the vendor and the purchasers as human beings.  What other agencies lack, she provides by responding to all questions and giving constant feedback.  So you know where things are at continually through the selling process.

Matt Whittred

We are currently moving into an Explore Property Townsville rental and have been dealing with Pagan as our property manager who has been awesome to deal with, very friendly and efficient. Fantastic service so far - thanks Pagan!

T. Lane

Nelly Bay

As buyers we came to the Island armed with a list of properties we had researched on the internet.  We met with MaryAnne discussed our list, preferences, possible locations and budget.  MaryAnne was excellend and very attentive, organised viewings for our property interests along with showcasing listings that may have suited our profile.  With great sucess we connected with one of MaryAnne's suggestions.

Thank you so much for your time, Island and listing knowledge also the ability to match us with a house (that we had skipped over during our online searches).  We are thrilled with our new home, love its vibe and location.

Buyer Review


Ronda made the whole process from initial contact to the final signature an absolute pleasure.  She was always contactable and had the answers we required.  I would recommend Ronda as a person I would like to deal with in the future whether I am purchasing another property or selling my existing one.  Well done Ronda, you are an amazing young lady and we wish you the best with your future endeavours.

Ed Guiney

Explore Property Townsville has been excellent in helping us move in and feel at home with our rental.  Special mention to Bonny Jaggard for all the help along the way!


Nelly Bay

Thank goodness for MaryAnne!  MaryAnne supported us through a difficult sales process, touching base with us regularly, always available and we knew she was working with us.  I would highly recommend her for any property sales.

West End

One of my stipulations was for the property to be 'open' on both a Saturday and Sunday to cater for those that were perhaps working or had other commitments.  I was also provided feedback on a Monday as to who had presented at the 'open' house and my belief is that these prospective purchasers were followed up on.  Thank you!

A lovely lady who is always very helpful.  Goes out of her way to obtain details for you and is quick for feedback and communications.

Victoria & Nicholas

Very good to deal with. Excellent communication.

John & Wendy

We chose Jan because of her long-term experience in the real estate industry in Townsville. We will use her again with the sale of our daughter’s house in Townsville later this year and will have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who is searching for a reliable agent in Townsville.


Nelly Bay

Trouble free purchase.

Lorraine and Anthony

Nelly Bay

MaryAnne Law went above and beyond her duties in assisting us with our purchase on Magnetic Island.  Anyone wishing to purchase a property on Maggie could not find a better agent.  She was pleasant, friendly personality.  MaryAnne always kept us up to date along the way throughout the whole process.

Glenn & Alice Sheerans

Annette was very helpful, we had not bought a house for 17 years and helped us through all stages of the sale.

Alan Buckler


Renting our property has been hassle free with Pagan as our property manager.  Pagan has been easy to deal with, efficient and thorough.  Thank you Pagan.

Sara-Jane Laurenson

Dealing with Annette Rowlings was an absolute pleasure.  Ours was a very difficult property to sell and Annette had difficult circumstances to navigate, which she did admirable.  She was honest, straightforward and very easy to deal with.  She kept us fully informed at every step of the way and was very accessible to us at all times either by direct mobile phone or email.  We are very grateful to her for her persistence and dedication and would thoroughly recommend her.

Clare and Sean

We were looking at renting our property which was a daunting thing, financially our house was everything we had.  We had seen a few real estate agents and felt like we were just a contract.  We then met Kim from Explore Property and she made us feel confident and appreciated like we were her only clients.  Nothing was ever too much trouble and Kim made us have that confidence that she would look after our house and find us the perfect tenant.  This is the best experience I have ever had with a real estate and I cannot recommend Kim enough.  I just want to say thank you, I have not received customer service like this before.

Russell & Emily

Our experience with Dean and Explore property was very professional right from the start to the end. Dean worked so hard to ensure our home was given every opportunity to be sold. Dean is an agent I would recommend to anyone wanting to sell a home.

Kevin Wringe

I am absolutely delighted to have chosen Annette Rowlings to sell a residential property in Townsville. Annette was truly professional. She knew the local real estate market well, she was energetic, she took appropriate initiatives, she was timely in her communication and respectful at all times. Annette achieved a very good outcome, notwithstanding several unusual challenges with the said property.


I strongly recommend Annette Rowlings as a real estate sales professional.


Nelly Bay

Very friendly, excellent knowledge on market, responded to questions promptly and thoroughly, was able to provide additional contact information on local suppliers and financing options.  Very easy to deal with and I would recommend 100%.  Thank you very much.


I am thankful to have found such an honest Agent. Not only is Jan Lee super efficient but she went way above my expectations in her service she supplied. Thank you Jan Lee

Tenant Recommended

I’ve been renting for 8 years now and have been through different real estates but I really liked the quality and service we were provided from the very start. The real estate are quick in getting back to us and I felt the agent Alissa Culleton has gone above and beyond in assisting us with the property. Renee was also lovely to speak to and deal with through the property inspection. The lady’s in the front office and even the staff walking around the real estate office were lovely and welcoming. At this stage I would highly recommend.

I made an excellent choice of dealing with Ronda


My dealing with Ronda of property I have recently bought was excellent.  I would gladly refer Ronda to anyone who wishes to buy property.  Thank you for all your help Ronda so much appreciated. 


Nelly Bay

MaryAnne is very professional and a mindful communicator and I am so grateful that all opportunities were explored and presented in a kind and thorough way.  Thank you so much.

Andrew & Clare

Bought and sold with Dean and had no problems. Would recommend him to others looking for a good agent.

Great service all round


Being an interstate seller I was not able to coordinate repairs, upgrades, maintenance or presentation of the property for sale.  Ronda made it easy.  She coordinated everything for me while at the same time keeping me up to date with all developments.  My experiences with real estate agencies in Townsville over a period of 10 years has been awful... right up until the time I discovered Ronda and Explore Property.  The service all round was great.  I recommend Ronda and Explore Property.

Paul and Catherine Johnston


Annette worked hard and was very professional. Two open houses a week did the job. Everybody including other agents advised us that we would not get the price we wanted in the low Townsville market. Annette excelled in getting people through the door and within 5 weeks the house had a contract signed, sealed and delivered. The marketing using a drone to capture amazing pictures and video was well worth it. We could not recommend anybody better to do the job in selling our house. A job well done.

Paul and Christine

After selling numerous homes across WA and QLD I would highly recommend Jan Lee if you want honest “no bull” real estate representation. We were selling in the upper market $700K bracket which meant fewer buyers in a depressed market but Jan never gave up the fight to sell our home. Highly recommend Jan for anyone thinking of listing their property in the Townsville.

Kristen Barnes

As a landlord I highly recommend Pagan of Explore Property Townsville.  Pagan is very professional, efficient and I feel assured she is working in my best interests at all times.  Thank you Pagan for providing an exceptional service!


Nelly Bay

MaryAnne performed an excellend personalized and professional service.  She provided talented assistance in interior design and photography and sold our house only days after listing.  We were very satisfied with the agent.


Nelly Bay

Very happy about the sale of this property and MaryAnne was so easy to deal with, I commend her and her workmanship - thank you MaryAnne.

By far the best experience we’ve had both selling and renting properties have been with Explore Property. Pagan Lackenby looked after our rental property as if it were her own. Allison Gough is so full of knowledge and good advice when it comes to selling. They really are second to none. Cannot recommend them highly enough.

Tracey Dillon

Dear Bonny, thank you for your assistance in managing my Brook Street property, your professional approach has been much appreciated and I wish I had switched agents years ago.

Experienced and Helpful


Ronda was very professional and had a folder containing copies of all accounts, safety clearances eg pool safety certificate and knowledge with records of electricity, water, rates etc

Lee Xian


Nicole Fox had taken care of me throughout the entire leasing process.  From inspection to moving in, Ms. Fox was extremely professional. 10/10, would definitely recommend Explore Property to future contacts.

John and Petra Cooper

Before we found Annette we had used a couple of different agents and they were pretty hit and miss, our trust in real estate Agents was pretty low. Then we found Annette whilst looking at a property she was marketing for sale and she immediately impressed us, so when we decided to purchase that property we used Annette to sell our existing property….and the rest as they say….is history. We have now been using Annette for our real estate purchases and sales for about a decade…and there have been a few; her knowledge of the Townsville area is unsurpassed. Annette understands the pricing in any given area and has never led us astray with inflated or unobtainable sales prices, she gives an honest and fair appraisal, and that is what we end up getting for the house when it sells. She has always been friendly, professional and dedicated, putting in the hard yards to make sure you get the best price and the fastest sale. If you are looking for an agent we highly recommend Annette Rowlings and give her 5 stars across the board.

Alan - Townsville City

Thanks to Annette and the team at Explore Property in Townsville for the excellent service provided and the extra effort as I am based in Melbourne, she went over and above.

Ceri Wilson


So far so good!  At a very early stage in the process, but Pagan has been really helpful and accommodating, offering lots of useful advice for us as first time renters in Townsville.

Kenneth and Kathleen

Nelly Bay

From the moment we met you at our house at 10 Lilac Street, Nelly Bay we knew we were onto a winner.  You came all prepared with printed sales brochures on our property beautifully presented.  After talking with you and you viewed the house you gave us an estimated price and an undertaking you would sell the house, and you did within one week.  The photos you produced were first class.  Your concentrated attention certainly paid off!  Producing a detailed inventory without even being asked displayed your attention to detail.  Many thanks for your professional approach.

Marisa Nucifora


It is lovely to see that you are acknowledging the hard work your staff does, particularly in such a difficult year.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank yourself and your staff for your courteous and professional approach to managing my rental property. 

I would also like to thank Trina Desreaux who looks after my residential unit in Bohle.  Trina keeps me informed on any issues that may arise with my property and organises maintenance jobs very quickly.  She is always very helpful and friendly and a pleasure to deal with.

Congratulations to you and your team on running a successful Real Estate Agency.  

Joan Paterson

Bonny Jaggard, the Property Manager, is always professional and approachable.  Listens and supplies solutions where possible.  Renting through Explore Property has been a very positive experience.


Jan provided excellent service and was always positive in her comments. Always tried to obtain the best price possible and did not down sell the property. Kept up to date on progress and open house responses from prospective buyers. Would recommend Jan without hesitation.

Anthony & Amanda

Mal helped us through each and every stage of buying a property. It’s our first purchase so we didn’t really know what to expect. I had no hesitation in ringing mal with any questions at all day or night he knew all about any questions I asked. He was truly great he even gave up a morning fishing to show us the property

Bethyl Curtis


The Staff at Explore Property are very friendly.  They are spontaneous and prompt.  I have never experienced a Real Estate Property who are so quick at approving an application and quick to address any maintenance issues required.  Thank you Explore Property

Judith and Deborah

Thank you Annette. You made selling our family home as easy as possible to deal with, assisting with extra preparations and removal of items to meetings well out of normal work hour times. Your knowledge of the current market and honest, balanced advice was appreciated and confirmed what we also believed. The house was listed and sold at a fair price. Happy it will have a new lease of life. Thank you again for you empathy and care.



Craig Hughes

Selling a house is a stressful affair, Annette made it easy and stress free. House sold for the price I wanted thanks to Annette’s follow ups on open house visits. Highly recommend.

Mindy and Ray

We couldn’t have asked for a better agent then Giovanni. As first home buyers, we were nervous and unsure about the whole process of buying a property, but Giovanni was awesome to deal with. He was always available for help and advice and to answer all of our questions. From the moment we enquired, to negotiating prices, and settling the property, Giovanni far exceeded our expectations. He was a pleasure to deal with and was prompt with answering all our questions honestly and giving us the required information we needed to make our decision to purchase. We would have no hesitation in recommending Giovanni to anyone, his knowledge of the real estate market is exceptional.


Nelly Bay

I chose to buy a house on Magnetic Island, off the Queensland coast, never having been there before.   MaryAnne allowed me several hours to view and mull over the property.  MaryAnne then drove me around the island showing me all the relevant sights and setting the scene for the island market and the investment potential for the property.  MaryAnne worked for the sellers, but gave me such a great service!  She went out of her way to make me feel safe about agreeing a purchase of the property I eventually purchased.  I felt like I wasn't being rushed at all.  I've just spent the weekend in my new holiday home and it was FANTASTIC!  I love the house and imagine myself there for many years to come!  Thanks MaryAnne!

We were impressed by Ronda's knowledge about the real estate in our area.  Ronda came across as a very warm and genuine person to deal with.  She kept us up to date with what was happening throughout the whole process.  Her advice was informed and most welcome.  We found the selling of the property to be such an easy process thanks to Ronda's expertise and advice.  Thank you, Ronda.

Matt & Cate

Giovanni was fantastic throughout the purchase of our property. He was very helpful, friendly and most of all, he made the whole process hassle-free. I would highly recommend Giovanni for anyone wanting to sell a property.

Ronda made the experience of buying our first home so easy and provided us with great advice and knowledge during the process.

Great Real Estate Agent

Mount Low

Ronda Hansen was very helpful from the first day.  She contacted us regularly which was very helpful as we knew where we were up to so there was no confusion.  I would highly recommend using Ronda.


Nelly Bay

We were very happy comfortable with the passion, professionalism portrayed by MaryAnne.  By providing a report verbal and/or in person on a weekly basis provided us with confidence to fully support her.  The settlement period was between 60-90 days subject to conditions in the contract.  The purchase price was a little below listed price but about what we expected.


Nelly Bay

Good friendly disposition and responsive to our needs.  We didn't feel manipulated or pushed into action.  We relied on MaryAnne's networking and communication skills and her ability to understand us, the sellers.
