Morgan and Kylie- 2016I have now had the experience of both selling and buying with Ray White Rural Esk and would highly recommend their services. Wayne Jaenke and his professional team know how to get the job done. We purchased our family home several years ago through Ray White Rural Esk and just recently when we had to organise the sudden sale of my parents property we knew, without hesitation, which realtors to choose. Thank you to the team at Ray White the sale happened quickly and at the right price and we could not be happier. THANK YOU!
Juli and Kevin- 2016Wayne and his crew are very helpful and efficient. We love the friendly atmosphere in the office and we are always made welcome.
John Lacey- 2016Wayne worked very hard to market a difficult to sell property, never giving up hope and never admitting defeat. Full credit to his high level of professionalism and diligence.
Melissa and Susan- 2016The staff at Ray White Esk have been responsible for looking after out rental home for the past 4 years and have sold it for us - who could ask for more!

Communication was excellent and we had no concerns in having to place a follow up call. Overall Wayne is an excellent real estate agent. We are very happy with his help and effort. thank you
Norm and Ros- June 2016Purchase of 49 Edinburgh Drive, Mt Hallen We cannot fault the service we received from Wayne Jaenke. His honesty, up front and always willing to help manner is second to none. His knowledge of the local area is great he would go out of his way to show us properties at short notice and work in with us along the way. If you are looking to purchase a property in the Esk area I would not pass up dealing with Wayne we are very pleased with our journey to purchase our property. Well done to all the Ray White Rural Esk team.
Ted and Marj Skinner- EskWe have known Wayne and Kay ever since they born here in Esk. They are two great people still working together today. The team at Ray White Rural Esk are outstanding in friendliness and service beyond the business transaction. Outstanding in every aspect especially in advertising our property for sale. The photos were excellent and we believe this is what sold our property. A BIG thank you to you both and Jye for helping us through the sales process. We reached a successful outcome for both us and the purchaser. Job well done.
Peter and Karen- EskDear Wayne. I write this with sincerity and respect. Initially, my wife and I decided to approach the two Real Estate agencies in the township of Esk. Then see which one we felt most comfortable dealing with and 'what and how' they presented the properties which best suited our profile. Wayne's easy going manner put us at ease straight away. We found that he is a very good listener. We liked the fact that he did not waste time showing us properties which didn't "fit". He got it right first time. He was very proud of his family's connection with the Somerset district, Esk in particular. His sincerity and professionalism were a refreshing change. We could tell he really loved his chosen profession and treated us as equals, talking to us at our level. After nearly 12 months of looking in the Lockyer Valley, we had just about reached the point where we didn't think "our property" was out there. Wayne proved otherwise. We made an offer within 48 hours of our first visit to this house. We have no hesitation in referring Wayne or working with him. Definitely a premier and professional Real Estate person. Your website really emphasises the lifestyle in Esk and Brisbane Valley (and the best part, friendliest town ever). It makes you feel like you want to be part of this beautiful community. We know Wayne will do anything he can to assist both seller and buyer. We have been very happy with this unique borough and look forward to expanding the range of activities there are available for us to take part in. Regards Peter and Karen.
Peter and Lesley Lamond- MaryboroughWe approached Ray White Rural Esk through their fantastic website and a commercial property of keen interest to us. The entire staff at Ray White Rural Esk are really great guys. Their after sales service is extremely valuable, they are very accommodating and friendly. An attribute in the 'country folk'. Very rewarding experience. We feel very confient that our future business needs will be met with efficient professionalism. Would you recommend us to your family and friends - Absolutely! Thank you for all your help to date.
Alan and Valerie Weier- EskMy wife and I wish to congratulate the entire team at Ray White Rural Esk. We visited Ray White Esk for a formal inspection of the property after we saw the "For Sale" sign at the front of the property. Where do we start! During the whole time from the first inspection to the time we were the new owners, we were treated in a friendly and courteous manner. We were treated with respect during the time the process was completed. At no time we had any bad feelings. Any queries were answered quickly and honestly. To me, the purchase progressed in a controlled orderly manner with no problems. We have no reason why we would 'not' recommend Ray White Rural Esk to everybody we know. We definitely would be using these guys again for sure. Your website is easy to use and well presented. We are enjoying our new life in Esk. Many thanks.
Jim and Louise Livingstone- EskWe have purchased, rented and sold a number of properties with Ray White Rural Esk and they were always extremely efficient and easy to deal with. Always kept in touch with us. Very professional and easy going at the same time. Great qualities that you don't see a lot of in real estate. Nothing was too much trouble. The Property Management team always met our expectations, very professional and kept us well informed. We have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Rural Esk and would have no hesitation in using them again in the future. Their website is very user friendly with great stories of everyday people. Adds that personal touch and not just the common hard sell like most other websites. Well done! Jim and I would just like to thank Wayne and Co for all their assistance throughout our dealings with the agency. We'll watch the area and would soon purchase again when things pick up. Many thanks.
Caryl King- EskMy sister and brother-in-law already had dealings with Ray White Rural Esk and they had seen a property on raywhiteruralesk.com.au that I would love. And how right they were. I bought it! I recommend Ray White Rural Esk for their customer service and most importantly, I never felt any pressure making my decision. I had a great experience with Ray White Rural Esk and really appreciated the help and patience I received from Wayne throughout this period. Thank you Team.
Dennis and Barbara Walsh- EskWe write this testimonial for Wayne and Kay. We bought the block of land through Wayne in September 2004. He was helpful to us then in finding us local tradies. Being a local with a good reputation for honesty and offering good service overall, we couldn't go elsewhere. Ray White have also acted as agents for us in real estate transactions elsewhere. We were two very stressed out vendors when it came time to sell our property of 11 years. Wayne and his staff provided excellent customer service, always friendly and obliging, offering guidance and assistance regarding the best promotion of the property. Photos were updated as the property greened up. Service was far in excess of a business transaction. It was comforting to have Wayne, Kay and Sarah handling the sale of our much loved home. They showed understanding and empathy towards us knowing that it was a difficult move overall. We thank the whole Jaenke family for their kindness. The feedback to clients regarding comments positive or negative from inspections, also better/best presentation for promotion to obtain a sale. Regular updates regarding online or telephone enquiries whether they lead to inspections or not. We have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Rural Esk for buying or selling. Ray White Rural Esk's website is great with information on the area, stories of people who have moved here and those who have left that you have helped move on in later stages of life. Being locals you promote the region with love and appreciation.
John Drynan- EskWayne, I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate all the work you do for the Campdraft, our Show Society and all the Sponsorship you share around our township. Job well done.
Lesley Deecke- Coal CreekI provide this testimonial for Wayne and all his staff at Ray White Rural Esk. Friendliness of staff and customer service is what drew me to Ray White Rural Esk. Nothing is too much trouble. I have already recommended Ray White Esk to my friends and my daughter whom has a rental property with them as well. All the staff are always helpful with good communication at all times. I always give Ray White Rural Esk a good wrap when talking real estate to my friends. Highly recommended.
Cassie Robinson- April 2015Wayne and Varinia Jaenke and all the staff at Ray White Rural Esk have a great reputation and always a delight with good genuine people. Amazing customer service, staff all go out of their way to go above and beyond to make customer happy. Always open and honest. All extremely friendly and approachable. 10 out of 10 service. We will always go with Ray White for our property needs. We have no hesitation in providing this testimonial to anyone looking at purchasing or selling. Your website is user friendly, good job. Thank you all very much for what you have done for us; and still do. Keep up your amazing work.
Robin and Judith Hill- EskWe made the move closer to our family in Esk. We noticed this lovely property on the internet and seeked our sons advice on an agent in the area. Ray White Rural Esk are pleasant to deal with and always polite. Wayne went out of his way to help us and worked hard to get the property for us. We have no hesitation in recommending Wayne and his staff to our friends.
Martin Shaw- BrisbaneI purchased land through Ray White Rural Esk in 2010 and was very happy with the service I received so I went with Ray White Esk once I had built the house and was ready to rent out. Your staff do a great job of managing our rental property too. Keep up the good work.
Kim and Michael Shields- ThailandWhat a lovely way to end the day. Such kind words from a client. "We are writing this testimonial for all the staff at Ray White Rural Esk. They are prominent in the Community with sponsoring and supporting local not for profit organisations. They are always at hand to help. Their Property Management team is very professional, efficient and friendly. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Rural Esk for Property Management or Sales. Customer Service is excellent. All staff are very friendly".
Sharon and Steve- EskWe found Esk Ray White Realty to be efficient in everything they did in the sale of our home. Wayne was gracious and knowing of all the local area. We allowed Wayne full access to show clients through at whatever time he had clients who wanted to view, which worked for us. He was always there showing clients and giving us feedback when promised. If I was to sell another house I would use Wayne again or Ray White Realty. Our contact with his office people was just as delightful, always ready to help you any way they can. I have sold 2 houses in my lifetime and both were sold by Ray White, I will be recommending Wayne to anybody I find to sell their house, and Ray White anywhere else I travel.
Matthew and Emma Robson- EskThank you all for helping find our wonderful home! We were total novices when it came to buying a house, Wayne helped take the stress of it all away with great advice and constant answers to our every question, whether it was a phone call, text message or email which was a great help with our sometimes busy schedule. Not only did Wayne and the team find us our first home, they communicated well through our negotiations of our final sale price right through to settlement date requirements. We would definitely recommend at least giving Ray White Esk a chance of finding your first or next home!
Peter and Cheryl - EskHi Wayne, A special thanks to you and your staff for the sale of our house in esk . The professionalism and friendliness of you and your staff made the stress of selling the house much more bearable. Your advertising prowess was second to none and resulted in a quick and clean sale. Many thanks Peter & Cheryl.
Helen and Chris Webster- EskWe have known Wayne Jaenke and his team at Ray White Real Estate Esk for several years. They have just sold our house and taken much care to assure that the sale went through smoothly. When we first arrived in Esk approximately seven years ago Kay was the first person we met from the Ray White team. Kay is so thoughtful and caring (as is all of the team) and went the extra mile to assist us in finding a home. They are friendly, courteous and always very professional when looking after their clients. Through the years we have continued to remain friends with Wayne and his team at the Esk office. Wayne, when bringing a potential buyer to our property would always give adequate notice as well as a friendly call to inform us that they were on their way here. We would highly recommend Wayne and his team at Esk if you are going to sell or purchase a property and be assured of a positive outcome and, as always, highly professional and good "old fashioned" service. Best regards Helen and Chris Webster.
Jack & Shar Burton- EskWe recently purchased " Hallenview " at Esk with the assistance & guidance from the principal of Ray White Esk Mr Wayne Jaenke. After a tiresome 10 days looking at 9 other properties & multiple agents we signed up for "Hallenview" within 36 hours from inspection.m We found Wayne to be an accomplished agent with a pleasant nature & a willingness to guide foreigners from interstate. We found Wayne to be up front & honest in all dealings and a sense of humour a bonus ! Shar & I enjoyed our experience & thoroughly recommend Wayne if buying or selling rural property in the Esk region. Regards Jack & Shar Burton October 2013
Steve and Vicki Hawkins- NSWUntil late last year we did not know that a lovely little town called Esk existed. Steve was sent up from Sydney late last year for work and came back raving about the area. We always dreamed of moving out of the rat race onto acreage and thanks to Wayne's willingness to share his extensive knowledge and passion for the area we have just purchased our second property through him. His passion for the area is infectious, we can't stop telling all of our friends and family from New South Wales about this beautiful part of the world. They are all very envious and a few of them are even considering making the move as well. Steve and Vicki Hawkins 2013.
Robin and Janice Spencer- Esk"Our property at Mt. Hallen was actually sold by Ray White Rural at Esk in 4 days. The sale was negotiated by Wayne Jaenke from that office. He gave us a lot of good advice which culminated in the quick sale for which we are really thankful". Robin and Janice Spencer September 2013.
Steve and Michelle Barrand- EskWe have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Rural Esk, especially Wayne Jaenke, to all prospective clients. All the staff members at Ray White Rural Esk that we dealt with during the sale of our property were professional and a pleasure to deal with. The sale presentation that was put together by Wayne Jaenke and Kay Davis, we believe, was one of the main contributors to our property being sold in such a short amount of time. We were impressed with the steady flow of interested buyers and were well informed at all times by Wayne in regards to every aspect of our sale. We would just like to thank you all personally once again.
Margaret and Adolf Kluger- EskTESTIMONIAL FOR WAYNE JAEKNE - RAY WHITE RURAL, ESK We would like to recommend Wayne and his team for the excellent service provided to us on the listing and sale of our house. Wayne came recommended to us by friends in the neighbourhood, and he lived up to his reputation of being a genuine agent motivated to sell our property. He consistently communicated to us in a timely way and provided important feedback to allow us to gather a realistic picture of the market existing at the time. He did not dissuade us from listing our property at the price we thought it was worth within the guidelines that we had observed and with an assessment from him. We were able to successfully sell within a few days which was quite remarkable. We felt Wayne heads a great team in Esk and we felt at all times valued and our mission to sell was a goal that they shared. When Wayne brought prospective buyers to the property, he was able to build rapport with them and moreover, bring to life the features and benefits of the way of life here. This ability to relate to a variety of buyers reflects on Wayne's experience in Real Estate, and his successful longevity in a community where repeat performance is consistently rewarded.
Debra Barclay- EskDirect copy from our Face Book page - "To all you speculators out there when looking to purchase or sell realestate in our beautiful Brisbane Valley give Ray White Rural Esk your first consideration. I have had the extreme pleasure of buying and selling 2 properties through these guys in the last two years and could not fault them. They are all born and bred locals to the area and give 110% effort to everything they do, nothing is too much effort and dealing with friendly smiling locals helps to put you at ease from go to wo. Local home grown business' are what make living in Esk and surrounding areas that much more enticing. Well done Wayne, Varinia, Kay and Jye for all the attention you have shown. We will be forever grateful for all you have done for us". Debra Barlcay April 2013
Glynis and Paul Clifford- EskWhen considering a move to Esk for retirement (currently resident in Rockhampton) we used the internet to find a Real Estate Agent there. We were fortunate to find Wayne Jaenke at Ray White Rural, Esk. When we met Wayne, it quickly became obvious that we had made the right choice. His friendly, easy manner and subsequent tireless efforts to find us a suitable property were instrumental in helping us to make an early decision to relocate to Esk. Of course, we had to sell property in Rockhampton to facilitate the move and that took some months to finalise. During that time, Wayne kindly offered to store some of our stuff until we could build on our block. But that's not all. Our sister/sister-in-law, who lived near Gatton had recently lost her husband and for health reasons needed to move off her 40 acre property and secure a unit in Gatton. We listed the property with Wayne who, within a few months was able to find a buyer at close to the listing price. He was also able to assist us to find a very nice unit in Gatton for her. During that time, Wayne handled contact with her with compassion, mindful of her health restrictions and privacy and also maintained regular contact with us as we managed our sister's affairs.
Rob and Sue Thorogood- EskWe just want to pass on a huge 'Thank You!' to Wayne, Jye and the Ray White team in Esk. After 15 years in Esk, we took the plunge to sell our haven, our home, and move to new pastures. Much trepidation, as we'd never sold a house previously. Jye did a marvelous job in setting us up, allaying our fears of the unknown. Then Wayne led us through the process so efficiently, it took all the stress off this big occasion for us. They really do work as a team! Consummate professionals, who really do care about the people they deal with. Even when we had a slight hiccup, the support, phone calls, emails etc made the whole process painless. Many thanks again for being there! Rob and Sue Thorogood February 2013
Debra Barclay- Esk" Dear Wayne, Just a quick note to allow me to take the opportunity to extend to you my extreme gratitude for assisting me with the matter of accessing Home Insurance for my mums house. Where all else had failed and continued knock backs, Ray White Insurance was the only company prepared to give me a hearing. We now have a policy that covers not only the loss of the house but also public liability. We are most grateful to Wayne and Ray White for being able to come to our rescue. It is the help of organisations such as yours which make me grateful that we live in the close knit community that we do. In small communities there is always someone who is prepared to help. Yet again, many thanks Wayne. "
John and Audry Hunt- Esk"A big thank you to Wayne and the team at Ray White Rural Esk for their assistance in our quick sale of our property and the professionalism shown to us as we relocated into the Esk township into our new home. We really appreciate Ray White Rural Esk's help and guidance and we are truly grateful. "
Boyd and Desley Laycock- Esk"We would like to thank Wayne Jaenke and the team at Ray White Rural Esk for the truly wonderful and professional service they provided throughout our auction campaign. Daily updates on inquiries and inspections on our property "Tandarra" kept us positive and inspired leading up to auction day. Once again thanks to this very enthusiastic group of sales people. "
The Vince Di Falco and family- Esk"We would like to thank Wayne and the Ray White team at Esk for finding and procuring the sale of "Jillarwill" to my wife, children and myself. We purchased the property as a tribute to the recent passing of my father, who raised and educated me on our family property in NSW. We fully understand that we purchased the property also as a deceased estate and found it only fitting to raise a younger generation (our children) in the same way I was raised on "Jillarwill". We hope to have also founded a personal relationship with Wayne who is a consummate gentleman and totally professional real estate agent. Wayne has helped us in many more ways than just procure a sale contract. He has extended his help to finding us tradesmen for repairs, invited us to local Christmas celebrations in Esk, invited us on his personal property for camping, etc etc. I'd like to thank Wayne for generally just being a good bloke. Thank you Wayne and Ray White Rural Esk – we wish to commend you warmly. "
