At Optimus we recognise that the success of our business is directly dependant on our core values. We are passionate about doing the right thing by our clients and by our community.

Feedback from some of our happy clients:

We have dealt with Tony Young for many years and found him to be a very helpful sales agent. He helped us understand the market whilst we were overseas and has managed to sell our properties quickly and for a fair price. He has excellent negotiating skills and has managed to achieve favourable outcomes for us. I would recommend Tony to anyone thinking of selling a property in the City Beach area.

When I wanted to sell our house in City Beach, two agents appraised the property.  I chose Tony Young, and was very happy with this choice. I found him very efficient, thorough, prompt, and the process went without any hitches. The price we obtained for the sale by auction was very satisfactory
Hugh Jones 


Tony was very professional and actually achieved more for my home than what I expected. At the home opens he was always professionally attired in a suit and tie in keeping with the upmarket area, knew all the key benefits of my home, and what was happening around the area. Tony was always approachable and nothing was ever too much a problem for him. The home sold very quickly (under 3 weeks) in a difficult market. Without doubt I would use Tony again to sell my home.

I cannot speak highly enough about Tony as an agent. We found him at all times professional, knowledgeable and a great negotiator. I would recommend him to anyone selling their property.
Grant Lilleyman


Tony did an exceptional job of selling my house. From helping me prepare my house for sale to guiding me through the negotiations and settlement I can’t fault him. Previously I had bought and sold properties with other agents and without a doubt the experience with Tony was far superior. I have recommended Tony to friends and their feedback has been the same.

Thank you for your patience and professionalism in the recent sale of my late Father’s home. It was a difficult time for us and we appreciated your patience, guidance and 'can do' attitude. Not only did we achieve a better result than we had hoped, but the experience right through until settlement was stress free and we felt assured you were looking after our best interest at every opportunity. Thanks again Tony and you'll be the first call we make when we downsize our beloved family home in the near future.

Tony was dedicated to selling our property in a pretty tough market. He gave great advice on the placement, marketing and set up of the property prior to sale. He was then very active in generating leads and I was especially impressed with his follow up of leads and convert the best opportunity.

We made the decision to appoint Tony as our agent for the sale of our property in South City Beach as we had attended a couple of home opens with Tony as the agent. He was courteous & most importantly followed up our visits to gain feedback each time - exactly what you want as a seller in a tough market. Tony was upfront & knowledgeable in guiding us through current market sales & valuations, resulting in us listing our house at a competitive price & ultimately selling it from the 1st home open. We could not speak highly enough of Tony's tenacity, professionalism & care in all of the dealings we have had with him & his team at Optimus. A great agent & agency!

We were very pleased how Optimus carried out marketing strategy and achieved a maximum price. Tony Young was the only agent to regularly follow-up and even assisted us buying after we sold. Most importantly, you delivered what you said you would. We recommend you with your knowledge and experience to anybody wishing to sell their property.

Tony Young - well done. Couldn't have asked for a better agent. The entire process has been a pleasure. If you're looking for someone to sell your house, call Tony.
Mia Barbagello


Bree manages our property for us while we live overseas.  She has been nothing short of amazing, we couldn't be happier with the service.  Being overseas it was important to us we had someone we could trust to make decisions on our behalf if required or to give practical recommendations.  Unlike other property managers we have come across, Bree actually does actively 'manage' our property.  We would highly recommend Optimus to anyone.
