John Natoli has had a truly exceptional career. A fully licensed real estate agent, John started work in the property sector in 1993. He soon established a reputation for excellence. Indeed, just two years after beginning his career he was named the REIQ Gold Coast Salesperson of the Year. This was to be the first of many awards.
Arguably, John’s stature within the sector is best reflected by the fact that he was the first Australian real estate agent ever to become a member of the international prestige property network, Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate. Membership of this network is only extended to those who have demonstrated exceptional knowledge and skill in relation to prestige properties in a given market.
As a former Director of a number of highly regarded Gold Coast agencies – PRDnationwide and Colliers International, John has gained an intimate understanding of central Gold Coast prestige real estate and as a result is continually sought out as a source of expert opinion when it comes to media analysis of this unique market.
While John’s curriculum vitae is impressive, it is not what attracts the bulk of his clients. John has an outstanding reputation as an agent with highly developed communication skills. John is well known for the care he takes in ascertaining his clients’ objectives. Courteous and engaging, John is frequently described by past clients as a “listener, rather than a talker.”
He has an unrivalled knowledge of his market, based in part on his status as a long-time local resident. His long-term knowledge of the prestige marketplace gives him the ability to offer unrivalled advice about properties in this sector.
In addition, John is able to draw on his extensive property database of absolute beachfront homes; riverfront homes; prestige penthouse and sub-penthouse apartments in order to facilitate clients’ transactions. A highly skilled marketer, John’s record of achieving exceptional sales results for his clients is unmatched. His status as one of the strongest negotiators on the Gold Coast stems from his ability to continually set new price benchmarks within the prestige sector.
He was the first agent to achieve a sale price over $1,000,000 for a property on a single 405sqr mtr block in Hedges Avenue, Mermaid Beach in 1997.

“What particularly impressed us with John’s service was not only his attentive and courteous manner, but his ability to strategise a sales campaign tailored to suit our needs. Paramount to formulating a successful plan was establishing whether our main pre-requisite was time or money. We found John to be respectful, ethical and honest at all times, never ‘gilding the lily’ but always being forthright in his regular updates on progress.”
