Great Real Estate: new on the scene
You may have noticed a new real estate brand on the pages of The Echo. Great Real Estate is a new brand under the Unique Estates umbrella. Property insider caught up with Nicolette van Wijngaarden, director of Unique Estates. Unique Estates is a boutique agency specialising in marketing luxury properties for sale and rental.
PI: How long has Great Real Estate been a brand under Unique Estates?
NvW: March this year was our official launch
PI: What led to development of the brand?
NvW: Unique Estates created Great Real Estate to assist property owners that have a ‘great’ property they’d like to sell that isn’t at the price point of Unique Estate’ listing requirements. If it’s not a super-high-end unique property but it’s still a great piece of real estate we can use the marketing skills and channels we have developed over the past seven years under Unique Estates and apply them to our Great Real Estate clients. It is our new sister brand and a complement to our current real estate offering.
PI: How has it been received in the marketplace?
NvW: The feedback has been amazing and the takeup has been great!
PI: How does it differ from the Unique brand?
NvW: Great Real Estate offers a great affordable property across the country to a local and national audience. Unique Estates offers high-end unique and or luxury property across the country.
PI: Are there any agents on the team who specialise in the Great brand, or do all agents on the team work with both brands?
NvW: Our agents cover both brands, while our marketing teams tailor each campaign to suit the brand and the property. There are some great synergies as buyers under both brands often have property interests in both categories. It’s just another way we can service our clients better.

A stunning Gold Coast hinterland property set for auction 25 November represents an amazing opportunity just as it is, and the potential for further development really sets it apart, according to Nicolette Wijngaarden of Unique Estates Australia.
