Stuart Payne


Stuart Payne has been a fully Licensed Real Estate Agent for over 40 years.  Stuart's entry into real estate began in the Eastern Suburbs, where he was Sales Manager at L J Hooker Maroubra.  He then became Manager of an L J Hooker Branch when they were Company run offices.  He established Raine & Horne Maroubra in 1976, had a young family and lived in the Eastern Suburbs before moving his family to Cronulla in 1980, commuting back to Maroubra on a daily basis.  After 12 years the lure of working locally, closer to his 4 young children, made the decision to sell his business easy and he established Burraneer Bay Real Estate 21 years ago.

Stuart's love of the Shire, its people and lifestyle is recognised by many who deal with him.  It has always been his first priority to look after clients, either as Vendors or Purchasers, to achieve the best results and cherish the friendships made.

Stuart's vast experience in dealing with all facets of real estate from Council Authorities to Government Departments enables him to give sound advice to clients. Builders and Developers often call on his expertise for their projects in design and concept stages.

Living locally, now with adult children and 4 young grandchildren, Stuart gets great satisfaction when dealing with families in the important decisions of buying and selling real estate.

Away from work he enjoys relaxing with family and friends, playing golf at New South Wales Golf Club where he is a member as well as running, cycling and boating.

Stuart, you are amazing!  Your energetic, enthusiastic, ethical and ever-helpful nature has been something we have needed, counted on and admired – we thank you most sincerely.

Geoff & Rhonda Fraser

Dear Stuart, Thank you for your assistance in selling my sister’s property. We found your communication, from advice regarding the listing of the property, to the preparation of agreements and negotiations, right through to the final Sale, seamless and professional. The situation was not an easy one as it involved family and a special set of circumstances. Again, your empathy and sensitivity in the handling of the situation was truly professional and appreciated by both Pauline and myself. Stuart, thank you for your effort and your tenacity to achieve a quick sale and more importantly, an excellent price. Both Pauline and I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.

Gary & Pauline Grogan

Dear Stuart & Adam Warmest wishes to you and your families this Christmas and every blessing into the New Year! Thank you for all of your assistance this year in the purchase of our new home at 21 Cross Road, we are very happy here already!

Angela & Michael Reardon

I first met Adam several years ago at an open house. Although I did not purchase that property I was so impressed with the way he interacted with me as a potential purchaser that I was determined to keep him in mind for a time when I, too might be selling my own property. He was calm, professional yet warm, genuine and respectful. My sister was also impressed and engaged him as her agent when she sold her home under trying circumstances. She could not sing his praises more highly to me. "I could talk to him about anything, anytime". "He ended up more like a therapist". Shortly after I asked Adam to auction my inner city terrace in an uncertain market. I was very anxious about the process, this being the first time I had ever auctioned a property. I was inclined to accept an offer prior to auction but Adam supported me an advised me well. The outcome $300,000 more than I was prepared to sell the property for - a wonderful result. Adam was absolutely right about everything. His judgement was impeccable. I hope to be able to retain his services for any future property issues I might have. I cannot recommend him more highly and would be very happy to discuss my experience further.

Lynne Hannan

Dear Stuart, Adam and Cathy Thank you for all your great advice and service over the past years of tenancies and sales. You're great people and we really appreciate all you have done.

Gary & Kushi Verdickt

Dear Adam, We want to thank you for your very professional service this afternoon.  It was a pleasure to meet someone who understood the property so well.  After some years developing property on the Gold Coast it was most refreshing to see something that excited us. We look forward to talking to you further.

Paul & Karen Cahill

We recently sold our property in Woolooware through Adam Payne of Burraneer Bay Real Estate. The team at Burraneer Bay Real Estate delivered the result we had wanted when we initially decided to put our house on the market. Their professionalism and experience resulted in our property being sold in excess of what we had asked, more than fulfilling our expectations. Our house was on the market for a very short time and through Adam’s promotion and marketing experience we managed to have in excess of 30 prospective buyers pass through the house. The process of selling one’s home can be an emotional and demanding one. Adam’s empathy and understanding allayed our fears and through his marketing skills we were able to display our home to give maximum exposure. We thank Adam personally for his exceptional efforts and can highly recommend the team at Burraneer Bay Real Estate. Kind regards

Rod & Kay Kitchen

Hi Stuart, Sue & I thank you and Adam for the professionalism you both provided during the past couple of months. In addition, your weekly correspondence regarding the prospective buyers report, left us with no doubt our property was in good hands.  Both Adam and yourself were prompt in attending the weekly "open house" inspections ensuring our home was maintained in a clean and secure manner and thoughtfully even after rainy days minimising wet and dirty foot prints throughout the house. Your local area knowledge and property valuation were accurate and you maintained the price rather than our experiences in selling past properties with other agents, who either lost interest or expected to discount for a quick sale. Burraneer Bay Real Estates transparency kept us fully informed right throughout the sale with a pleasant experience rarely provided in business today with over promising and under delivered services. We will certainly refer you to our friends and family for future real estate purchases or sales. You thanked us for our business, we thank you for your efforts ................................

Garrie & Susan Harrison

Dear Stuart and Team, Thankyou for being so professional, you made our stay here very enjoyable. It has been very easy dealing with you all. Reagards

Ryan & Bianca

In particular, I would like to thank you for your professionalism, integrity and your extensive hard work in assisting with the sale of our family home.  It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you and the staff of Burraneer Bay Real Estate and I will no doubt be highly recommending your services. Once again, thank you and the staff of Burraneer Bay Real Estate for all your support and outstanding efforts. Kindest Regards

Dear Stuart, Thank you for your time, effort and professional advice in the buying and selling of the above property. Regards

Ken Warburton

Thank you for your letter to Mrs Beaumont advising settlement details of the above property sale. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your prompt and friendly attention to this matter, particularly to Adam for his updates on progress from time to time. Mrs Beaumont is still having problems settling into the Nursing Home and consequently giving us a few hassles however, she is being cared for in a pleasant facility. With kind regards and best wishes

Ann Perry (Power of Attorney f

Couldn’t have done it without the expertise of your team. The accurate advice on the current market was spot on. We are thankful we put our greatest asset our family home of 23 years into capable hands. Your honesty, integrity and genuine caring was much appreciated. Stuart, Adam, Cathy and Lesley we offer our sincere thanks for the smooth transition during this emotional but exciting time in our lives. Yours thankfully

Maurice & Deb Wood

Dear Adam & Stuart, I thought I would drop you a note to thank you for the excellent work in selling our Grays Point property. Throughout you were professional, competent and attentive. I appreciated your continued interest in progress throughout the long settlement period too. I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else to represent us and I would have no problem in recommending you to others. Many thanks & kind regards

Phil Warburton

Dear Stuart, It is with the greatest pleasure to voice our pure delight and utmost thanks for the sensational result on Saturday. We have been following Burraneer Bay’s prolific sales record over the last five years to come to the conclusion, Stuart and Adam Payne have formed a very successful partnership based on trust, experience and reputation. Our dealings on Willarong Road certainly enhanced these perceptions as we realised whilst being fair and direct with us as potential buyers, your loyalty was unwaivering towards your client. These qualities you possess are not only rare, but quite refreshing. Our dealing with Adam too has been very productive and pleasant indeed. I can certainly relate to being a son trying to emulate a hard act to follow. You should be very proud of Adam who also has the same qualities and attributes. The praise should not stop there. Your staff were also very courteous and helpful at all times and should be commended for their dedication, friendliness and hard work. This exceptional result has not only taken a load of pressure off my shoulders, but will enable me to build my family’s dream home before they are too old to enjoy it. This my friend will be the greatest gift of all. With deep sincerity and great admiration for the best Real Estate Agents. Yours sincerely

David Long

Thanks for all your efforts in selling our house. You put in 110% all the time and we really appreciate it!

Jen, Kylie & Matt De Boer

Stuart, The professional and courteous service of you and all your staff is much appreciated. Thank you

Steve & Robyn Ioannou

Dear Stuart & Adam, I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you both for your efforts in the recent sale of our home. We were most impressed with the level of professionalism displayed by Burraneer Bay Real Estate in all of our dealings in respect of the sale, and you were able to achieve a sale for us in a very short time after listing the property and at a price that fully satisfied our expectations. The extent to which you were able to access a ready pool of prospective purchasers immediately from your existing relationships made the process of finding a buyer much quicker and less intrusive for us. Once again thanks for the great outcome. Regards

Gary Dransfield

Dear Stuart & Adam, We would just like to say thank you very much for your professionalism and the courteous manner in which you and your staff handled the sale of our home at 2 Bulls Avenue West, Burraneer. Everything went like clockwork for the day it was listed with you until the Auction and settlement. We were extremely happy with Burraneer Bay Real Estate. I would just like to mention a couple of extra things, such as towels put down at the entrance door on rainy inspection days for people to wipe their feet on.  Also on one of the open for inspection days when Lorraine left her rings on the microwave in the kitchen they were picked up by you and returned to Lorraine. We would certainly recommend to everyone your professionalism in carrying out your task with the care and detail you applied and we have already done so. With many thanks

Mark & Kim Pucher

Dear Stuart & Adam, We wish to express our sincere thanks to you for all you did in helping us to secure a very successful auction result on our Dolans Bay property. Burraneer Bay Real Estate handled our Woolooware Road sale in 1995 and our experience then was such that we felt we need look no further this time. However, conventional wisdom says that vendors should seek more than one market opinion, so we asked five other agents to appraise our property. That exercise served to confirm what we already thought about BBRE……..that yours remains a no-nonsense approach to Real Estate, telling us what we needed to hear, not necessarily what we wanted to hear. That wasn’t always the case with the other appraisals and in a climate of dizzy Real Estate stories it’s vital that things are kept in perspective. That’s where your years of experience really come into their own and ultimately that’s what makes the difference.   Whilst our property wasn’t in the seven-figure bracket, we never felt that we weren’t receiving the same attention as those that were. The quality of advertising and fliers was first class and no doubt contributed to the very large number of inspections we had. The Open Houses and the Auction itself were all conducted with the utmost sensitivity and professionalism and it certainly helped to ease us through the process. Our thanks also go to the office staff who were there to answer any questions and provide back-up when needed. A successful business is never about just one person. We would recommend, unreservedly, you agency to anyone seeking to lighten the burden of buying or selling property and thank you again for doing exactly that for us. With best wishes for your continued success

Colin & Helen O’Brien

Dear Stuart, This is just a brief note to thank you and your staff for the unfailing courtesy and assistance received from your office during the time of our sale and purchase. There were a number of complicated aspects to the purchase and the fact that it proceeded smoothly is in no small measure due to your involvement. Your help has been much appreciated by myself and Sharon. Regards

Greg Dickson

Dear Stuart, I would like to express to you and your team my gratitude and thanks for the professional and courteous way in which you handled the auction of my property at 4 Mansion Point Road, Grays Point. It was an emotional time for me and I am grateful for the way in which the auction sale was handled and as a bonus, the very good price achieved – you are right, I was pleasantly surprised! Thank you all again.Best regards
