It sounds like a cliché, but Paul Manners is not your average real estate agent.
Family oriented and holistically driven, Paul has a profound awareness of the weightiness of decisions such as selling a long-term family home filled with memories or locating the perfect place to create a lifetime of happiness.
And much of his motivation to help clients make these life-changing transitions comes from this understanding.
“A lot of the people I deal with are either selling their treasured and much loved family home because they need to relocate or perhaps downsize, or they are looking to buy a property where they can start their journey and grow many happy memories.
“There is no way of down-playing the gravity of these kinds of decisions and for me, the most rewarding part of this job is helping people achieve their goals and dreams.
Recognising the passion of his own connection to the ocean, nature and community, Paul relocated with his wife Talei and children to the South West from Perth about ten years ago.
“I have always worked in sales, and was previously a part owner in (surf label) West, I have a life-long love of surfing and the ocean, so it seemed like a natural choice to move to Gracetown. But it was a big move nonetheless and I like to think that insight helps me do a better job when I am at work.”
Paul says he always spends time getting to know his clients before rising to the challenge of finding a solution that is perfect for each situation.
“I always go the extra mile and I get a real kick out of that,” he says. “For me, it is important to build a good relationship with the people I work for so that I can understand their situation and come up with good options. I genuinely enjoy seeing people happy and I really am all about making things easier for people.”
Not surprisingly, many of Paul’s friends in the region are former clients.
Paul is a true gentleman. Nothing was too hard from start to finish. All queries were answered swiftly. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
Paul was a pleasure to work with, being a first home buyers he really helped us through the process from start to finish. Great to deal with, a highly recommended him for anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Southwest.

Paul was outstanding in his approach to selling our home. During a tough market Paul managed through negotiation to secure the exact sale price I was looking for.
