Director/partner, Macrossan & Amiet Solicitors
I have sold and purchased several properties using varies agents at Blacks Real Estate Pty Ltd and have always found them to be courteous, professional and able to obtain results. I have regular contact with Ian Black in relation to the sale and purchase of commercial properties for mutual clients and also regular contact with Ian Black and his commercial letting team in relation to the management they have of various commercial premises owned by mutual clients. I believe that their commercial letting department is second to none in Mackay. Ian Black and his staff are always well abreast with current trends in rental. Not only do they look after their landlord clients they also ensure that every tenant or their landlord clients are properly treated in a courteous and professional manner. It must be a great satisfaction that Ian’s son Andrew, is now the fifth generation Black to be a partner and director of Blacks Real Estate Pty Ltd, which says not only a family commitment to the business, but a commitment to the community to that the family and the other directors and shareholders of Blacks Real Estate Pty Ltd. I have regular contact with all of the directors of Blacks Real Estate, again in realtion to mutual clients, whether they be vendors or purchasers which we represent. I congratulate Ian and his co-directors and shareholders in reaching the milestone of 130 years of business in Mackay, a milestone which far outreaches other similar businesses in Mackay. I wish them well for the future and encourage the Mackay community to encourage them in the future.
Director, BAWD Pty Ltd
Our company has been associated with Blacks Real Estate in various property and real estate transactions since 1981. Blacks Real Estate has effectively and efficiently handled the sale and purchase of our properties and the leasing of many tenancies within our property portfolio during that time. Our company has always received professional, timely and accurate advice from Blacks in relation to leasing, market trends, valuations and other real estate matters. The fact that that have been established in Mackay for 125 years is a measure of the ongoing confidence they have instilled in the Mackay community and the support that they have received in the district. Our company’s long association is an indication of our satisfaction with their advice and expertise. We have always found Blacks Real Estate to be reliable, genuine, trustworthy and precise in their dealings with our company.
Carlisle Motors, a locally owned motor dealership established in 1948, has had extensive dealings with Blacks Real Estate in the past 63 years. Records indicate that the grandfather of the current owners of Carlisle Motors had dealings with HL Black as far back as 1922, when horse-trading was a significant amount of Black’s business. Chubb, Ian and Andrew Black are personally known by the shareholders of Carlisle Motors and are well respected in the Mackay community. Black’s celebration of 130 years in business in Mackay is testament to the firm’s desire to deliver for their clients whether it be buyer or seller. We encourage Blacks Real Estate to continue to deliver the same quality of service and integrity in the future.
I have known Bev Woosley for the 10 years I have lived in Mackay. During this time I have had the pleasure of dealing with Bev on both the sale and purchase of property. During these transactions Bev has shown an energy level far beyond anyone I have met in the real estate industry. Coupled with this enthusiasm is an unrivalled knowledge of both the market and her clients, and an uncommon ability to very quickly bring both parties of a transaction to a shared understanding. In this time she has grown to become a family friend, and I can attest to the same values she brings to the real estate industry, those of generosity, fairness and trust. It is with this suite of skills and values that Bev has rightly earned her reputation as the leader in her field.
I have known Bev Woosley for a very long time, mostly through her employment as a real estate agent and more recently as a sales consultant at Blacks Real Estate Mackay. A Real Estate Agent’s role is to help you achieve your aims in the most efficient manner possible. In all my dealings with Bev as my agent, whether it be purchasing or selling industrial sheds, houses or properties, she has always delivered the desired result. Bev has always displayed a dedicated attitude towards her job and is a hard worker. She has a wealth of experience which spans many years and I look forward to our continued association into the future. I wish Bev all the very best for her future endeavours.

(About Peter Francis)
I just wanted to say a big thank-you for all your help during the scary “first home buying” process and thank-you so much for the note and champagne! It was just lovely to receive. This house really was meant to be and it’s all really fallen together and you played a part in that so thank-you again. I will definitely recommend Blacks Real Estate to friends and family and if we ever want to sell you know where we’ll be going.

Blacks Real Estate were initially engaged on the Lanai Apartments project in conjunction with a number of other local agencies. Lead by Peter Francis & Greg Lewis, they demonstrated their ability to connect with local investors and owner occupiers culminating in sales of several apartments. Throughout this time they demonstrated their commitment to the project and were ultimately appointed on an exclusive basis and played a key role in the sale of the balance development stock.
