Vivien Yap, Ray White Dalkeith/Claremont

"I closely track where my buyers come from, and can confidently say: there is huge value in print!"

David Milkovits, Maxpro

"Put simply, print delivers me more buyers. It captures an audience that may not even be looking in your suburb. More buyers means more competition and that means higher prices for my sellers.”

Jan Di Rosso, Ray White Uxcel

“Staying with local print has brought great results to my sellers and buyers over many years. Local is simply the best.”

Devon Kelly, Laurie Kelly Real Estate

“Having personally sold nearly 100 local properties in the last 12 months, local paper advertising forms an integral part of my marketing plan with the results speaking for themselves!”

Kirstin Dunn, Semple Property Group

“Advertising in Community News ensures that we are reaching the maximum number of consumers in our local area.”

Craig Boyanich, Rayner Real Estate

“As a local agency, it makes sense that we advertise through a local newspaper. The Guardian Express allows us to reach more potential buyers and prospective tenants.”
