About Us

Property is our passion


If it’s a new place to call home, or a new investment, we believe that buying property should always be a win. A reason to celebrate. It’s a life changing decision that helps pave the way for a future full of potential and prosperity, even when it’s not your first time in the market.


For The Property Baron, being a buyers agent on the Sunshine Coast will always be more than a job. It’s a passion that drives us on an ongoing search to discover new opportunities. It inspires us to watch the market relentlessly, pore over insights and analytics to predict market values, and follow changes in infrastructure daily to determine new areas for growth.


And while we understand that buying property can often feel like a financial risk, we believe that with the right representation, it doesn’t have to be that way. Because in a market that historically favours those selling properties, we use our wealth of experience and expertise to give buyers an advantage.


And we do that like no other property buyers.

During his 12 years as a full time Property Investor, Jason experienced first hand just how much the property market favours the seller. People looking to buy are at a huge disadvantage, as traditionally it’s only sellers who leverage the experience and expertise that come with representation.

Jason believed that buyers deserved the same support as property sellers, and turned his passion into purpose, by representing home buyers and investors to help give them an advantage.

Jason believes that opportunities present themselves through meticulous research. And while many buyers typically only begin researching the market when they’re preparing to buy, Jason spends every day following it relentlessly. He pores over statistics and insights to help predict market values, and stays abreast of changes in infrastructure to determine new areas for growth. For Jason, numbers lead the way in decision making, helping to minimise risk, and empowering the negotiation.





Growing up in France, Maria moved to the UK before calling Australia home in 2006. She established her career as an art director in Sydney working on leading magazines and digital publications including CHOICE, Gourmet Traveler, Harper’s BAZAAR, Australian Women’s Weekly and the QANTAS in-flight magazine.

She combines her wealth of property expertise with a passion for design, through Black and White Projects. With work featured in Adore Home Magazine and The Interiors Addict. The Black and White Projects website showcases renovations Maria and Jason have completed.





Sam is key to operations at The Property Baron. She brings 17 years of experience and oversees process and procedures for both agents and clients, along the buying journey.

She believes the real estate industry is full of opportunities, especially in the current market. Home on the Sunshine Coast, Sam, like all of us at The Property Baron, takes great pride in siding with buyers. 

Inspired by Henry Ford, Sam believes ‘If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself’. She’s a total team player and brings the intuition, resourcefulness and agility that helps us all operate at our best. Every day.





When it comes to property, local knowledge is invaluable. Sunshine Coast native Cameron Hicks gives buyers an advantage in the market through his inherent understanding of the area. From a macro level, right down to the individual streets.

Cameron has a Bachelor of Business Management – Real Estate and Development, and is a Registered Property Valuer too. He’s conducted thousands of valuations in the area across multiple property types, giving him the rare ability to compare similar properties and assess the value each has to offer.

As buying a property is often the biggest investment people will make in their lives, he believes that it deserves every care and consideration. With the coast in the early stages of maturing into a major business and lifestyle centre, leveraging the right skill set can turn a purchase into an investment that generates wealth and opens up more options in the future.




Two character traits that can make all the difference in property buying are exceptional teamwork and a competitive nature. Having represented Australia in Beach Volleyball at the Olympics twice, Lee Zahner over delivers on both.

Working in property development for over 20 years, Lee is a Noosa local who has developed an impeccable track record of recognising opportunities for growth. Seeing an imbalance in professional representation, he joined The Property Baron with a commitment to teaming up with buyers, sharing opportunities and always staying one step ahead of the competition. 

Lee’s dedication to understanding client motivations and desires is remarkable. His motivation is contagious. His persistence is inspirational. Lee makes for an excellent teammate. 




During his 22 years in the real estate industry, Mark Engwerda has gained invaluable skills and insights into the local market, which have enabled him to successfully secure property for a variety of buyers. He has great relationships with local agents, a hands-on approach and exceptional negotiation skills.

Mark believes his success in the industry comes down to his ability to listen and fully understand his clients individual requirements. He finds it extremely rewarding to be able to use his own experiences to help others and is particularly excited to work with clients who are relocating or starting a new adventure in the Sunshine Coast.

From owning a residential agency through to developing property, Mark has worked in a number of different areas within the industry, meaning he has invaluable insights and provides a unique advantage to anyone looking to buy property on the coast.




Motivated to represent buyers, and inspired to bring balance to the property market, there was no hesitation inviting the enthusiastic and determined Jansen Spencer to join us at The Property Baron.

Jansen has been involved with property since he was young, buying his first home at just 18 years old and building his portfolio and career through investments and renovations.

As a former sales agent, he brings a wealth of experience from both sides of the transaction. Reassuringly familiar with strategies used by agents and vendors, today he leverages his understanding to preempt actions and think ahead for clients.
