Ryan Deague is a Burleigh resident having embraced the beach lifestyle for over 10 years. In his free time you'll find him getting involved in the local community and enjoying time with his young daughter.

Having bought and sold his own family home, he is very aware that he is in a trusted position to look after his Client’s greatest investment and thus livelihoods.

Ryan chose Real Estate as his profession after forging a successful career in Surveying. As a Land Surveyor he worked on Gold Coast (and Queensland) property developments, building and house construction, major roads and rail networks, subdivisions, land boundary identification and the list goes on. As a Residential Sales Consultant, the experience and specialised knowledge he accumulated as a Surveyor creates another layer in his depth of area knowledge. Further, Ryan has undertaken accelerated training offered exclusively by LJ Hooker to develop and hone his skills.

We looked to Ryan’s peers for feedback on his greatest strengths. They include (but as by no means limited to) ‘Conscientiousness and attention to detail.’ ‘Good ability to express himself in writing and an ability to master detail’. These qualities ensure that the selling and buying process is smooth and efficient for everyone involved. As a current resident it is in Ryan’s best interest to maintain

a high level of growth in our exciting suburb.

Ryan and the LJ Hooker Burleigh Heads team are active members of the local community, supporting initiatives such as the Cystic Fibrosis, Fighting Chance, Hooker House, Kids to Coast, local schools and sporting sponsorships such as Burleigh Waters Social Golf Club and Gold Coast Albert Junior Tennis Club.

What our customers say

See all

Found the right buyer at the right time. Set realistic price expectations and closed the deal well. Not a boisterous used car salesman approach and would be happy to deal with Ryan again.

John Sharpin Sydney

I would like to take a moment to show the appreciation of our family for the excellent way your team handled our mothers house sale. Your agent Ryan Deague was mums first choice to handle the sale after he had been in touch with her for a couple of years, without putting any pressure on her to sell. We were amazed by Ryans dedication and professionalism and he secured the sale in a matter of hours. More importantly to us, his advice and local knowledge made emptying the house much easier. I have never known an agent to roll up his sleeves and help with moving furniture and packing boxes but this is what Ryan did on several occasions. His personal dedication to his work is boundless, he even visited mum in hospital. I would recommend Ryan to anyone buying or selling property especially if they want results without the stress. (or bulls***) Many thanks from Lynne Cruse on behalf of the Larchin family.

Sellers - 5 Seahawk Crescent, Burleigh Waters

Our names are Joan and Don, we listed our home for sale, Ryan Deague from LJ Hooker made contact with us and from then on we could not have had a better experience. Ryan went out of his way to help us to prepare our home for listing, he spent his own time cleaning our drive and removed an awning which my husband and I could never had done on our own, as we are getting on in years. Ryan has made our selling and buying transition a pleasure. Ryan spent so many hours arranging and accompanying us to view homes to buy also advising us with contracts. I do not know what we would have done without his advice. We have no doubt he would do the same for any future clients he represents. Sincerely, Joan & Don.

I decided to sell my home at Burleigh Waters a few months ago and had the good fortune to put the sale in the very capable hands of Ryan Deague. I can honestly say that he did a wonderful job for me, not only selling my home in a short time (and I was very happy with the result) but he also went that extra mile to make sure the best possible result eventuated…He even arrived one morning in his work clothes and boots and guernied my driveway, entrance and patio..I don’t know any other agent that would have done such a thing. I happily recommend his services and I am available to be contacted (lro26382@bigpond.net.au) Lynn Rogers

Ryan carefully considers any challenge he is about to accept before moving forward. He has a good sense of humour and is very considerate of other people’s needs. Ryan’s manner is calm and reassuring. He is reliable, intelligent and totally honest in everything he undertakes. He is also extremely popular with his friends and peers. I have every confidence in recommending Ryan to any employer who might consider him for a position of responsibility and requiring reliability.
