Barry Chick

Barry joined our team in August 1998 and very quickly proved the value of his previous 18 years working in the real estate industry in Western Australia. Barry is a fully licensed real estate agent.

Most men would find it difficult working in a sales team that was female dominated but it doesn’t bother Barry in the least. His great sense of humour coupled with a decidedly philosophical outlook on life makes him the ideal male to work in an office full of women. “Chook” is simply one of those roosters who’s feathers don’t get ruffled. He thrives on challenges and enjoys being busy.

Around 9 years ago Barry decided to check out the East Coast of Australia while driving around the country and stumbled on Mount Tamborine. He fell in love with this lush green scenic area that contrasted so greatly with the farming country of WA where he grew up. That was the end of his exploratory journey. He had not intended to go back into real estate, but discovered that there was a very special agency right on the Mountain that offered the type of working environment and proactive approach to marketing that made the move back into the industry seem right. He came in and introduced himself, but at that time the “No Vacancy” sign was up. Barry is incredibly patient! He knew a vacancy would occur if he waited, and it did.

He brings a wealth of industry knowledge and experience to his work and quickly picked up that essential local area knowledge that allows him to assist buyers to make the right choice for their future. Barry’s calm and serene approach to life ensures that buying a home or a vacant lot does not become a stressful experience for his clients.

Barry is a quiet achiever who really enjoys what he does. He is an excellent listener who spend time with his clients to make sure he understands their desires and wants so he can match them up with the house of their dreams. Nothing is too much trouble for Barry. He goes that “extra mile” to make home buying a pleasurable experience and his clients quickly become his friends.

Barry’s move east has been a very successful one for himself, his chosen office and his clients. Comparison with industry benchmark standards indicates that Barry rates in the top 10% of Queensland sales people. This is no mean feat when he is working in an essentially confined small locality like Tamborine Mountain where the opportunity to expand the area of operation is firmly constrained by the geography of the locality.

Sellers & buyers get equally high service from Barry. People appreciate Barry’s efforts as this e-mail message from recent buyers indicates:

“Hi Barry,

On behalf of Peter and myself I would just like to thank you and Lane Realty for my lovely plant, it was a pleasant surprise and something that I would cherish and look after to enhance our home in Tamborine.

I am very, very pleased with the house and can't wait to make it our permanent home. Woke up with the territorial call of the Kookaburras. Love the mountain and its friendly people.

Thank you once again for your patience and help offered to us with the sale of Long Road 11. God bless and keep you all at Lane Realty.


Peter and Susanna”
