About Us

Who is Johnson Real Estate?

At Johnson Real Estate, we understand our business is not just about property. It's about people, and helping with their future. People invest in property for security, not for a speculation.

Operating for almost thirty years across south east Queensland, Johnson Real Estate has eight separate locations and delivers a suite of property services.

Wherever you are in your property journey, we’re confident we can be of value to you. Look forward to working with you.


Johnson Real Estate employs The Smartre Sale when selling property. What is the Smartre Sale? Simply put, it’s the best way to sell property in Australia today. The Smartre Sale proves time and again that it is the best method of sale when a property attracts multiple buyers, yet stands alone as the only effective method of sale when there is just one.

Over the last twelve-months, more than 10,000 properties throughout Australia were sold using this strategy. If you’re considering selling, take some time to see why The Smartre Sale may be right for you.

Property Management

The word ‘landlord’ conjures up images of wealthy property owners lording over tenants. In realty, the residential property investor is less protected by legislation than the tenant. Being a landlord is fraught with risks and challenges.

Johnson Real Estate has designed and delivers a 6 Star Level of Service to its clients (our landlords). This service ensures that your property and your financial interests are protected at all times. This is done through implementation of the right systems and training, whilst simultaneously treating our tenants with the utmost level of respect.


With a dedicated team of specialists, Johnson Real Estate’s Commercial division can aid in sales, acquisition, leasing, management or development.
Whether your interests lie in Industrial, Office, Retail or Leisure, our team have developed strong networks across all facets of property.

The Smartre Agency

Smartre means Smart Real Estate. At Johnson Real Estate, we’ve adopted an alternative approach to most agencies across Australia. Our mission is to work with all of our clients and customers using strategies that are both ethical and effective.

A practice that is unethical means it comes at the cost of somebody within the transaction. This could be the buyer, seller, landlord or tenant – often due to manipulation, deceit or misrepresentation. At Johnson Real Estate we refuse to conduct ourselves unethically.

Strategies that are ineffective are by definition, fruitless. The strategies employed by Johnson Real Estate not only lead to outcomes, but to the best possible outcomes for any of our clients.

If you see the word Smartre attached to a real estate agency, you can be assured they too are striving to improve the way people work and transact with real estate. A lofty goal yes, but a cause we’re proud to be associated with.


What our clients say...

Open communication and transparency were the standout aspects with JT
JT was by far the most friendly and helpful realestate agent we came across when looking to purchase our first home. He was honest and transparent in negotiations and made sure we were supported through each step of the process. Recently we were looking to sell and chose to reach out to JT as our first experience had been so positive. Again we have had a positive experience. Open communication and transparency were the standout aspects with JT keeping us updated every step of the way and ensuring decisions were posed to us. Thanks JT!
