About Me

After 18 years as an independent real estate agency in Burleigh Heads, Scott Boniwell has re-badged to become Ray White Burleigh Heads.An intrinsic part of the local community fabric, Mr Boniwell has been selling property in and around Burleigh for 27 of the 31 years that he has been a resident. He’s a keen supporter and sponsor of Burleigh Heads Bowls Club and local Surf Clubs.During this impressive innings, he believes that Burleigh has not only managed to retain its village appeal, but those qualities are strengthening as the tides return to the days of old. “We’re seeing a return to village values as people are looking for an escape from hustle and bustle with the bonus of access to all of the bigger city amenities,” Mr Boniwell says.“Burleigh is a small village in a city - we offer a different lifestyle to Mermaid Beach or Broadbeach.” “In its own unique way, Burleigh is to the Gold Coast, what Carlton is to Melbourne,” he contests.In addition to the appeal of the boutique strip shopping and alfresco dining that goes with the village atmosphere, Burleigh’s unique geographic position on one of only two hills on the Gold Coast and renowned surfing point, he believes sets the location apart as either a residential or investment proposition. Houses on the hill of Burleigh Heads facing north is a unique aspect on the Gold Coast, shared only with Currumbin.Diversity of property types and budgets from beach front units in the early 400,000 bracket through to property valued at several million dollars also ensures appeal to a broad mix of buyers are catered for. The culmination of those factors has created a “heightened appreciation of Burleigh,” Mr Boniwell says.Commenting on what prompted the decision to become part of the Ray White family, “I believe that technology now and in the future of real estate is paramount as is credibility and brand recognition - and Ray White as one of the biggest names around the country, certainly has all bases covered.”“I wanted to be able to provide vendors with exposure to Ray White’s huge database of prospective buyers throughout the Australasian network of 1,000 offices and 11,000 members. This will be of particular benefit to vendors with a unique property,” he says.
