Our Team

Doug Kennedy Licencee

Doug has been selling Real Estate on the Redcliffe Peninsula and surrounds for over 30 years. Doug came from a sheep station outside Winton and was Secretary/Manager of the Winton Club when he was first married. Many bush people move to Redcliffe ~ if you cant have the rolling downs you love the rolling waves! Land is in every bushies blood and so many ex-bushies get involved in Real Estate.

Doug started work with Ray White at first and then had the franchise. Doug is quite convinced the independent agents give greater personal service then the 'Big Guys' franchise offices who are only pushing their own agenda.

Doug loves the position of our office ~ right on the waterfront, the satisfaction of seeing his own business thrive through hard work and total commitment. We have a great team who have all become part of the 'Gateway Family'. With lots of fun & laughter. Doug says 'We have made some great friends over the years through real estate'.

Doug is very involved in the local community through our Art Gallery, Seaside Artists, which we set up to support local artists and use to raise money for local charities. We are also one of the major sponsors of the Redcliffe Show.

Probably the achievement Doug is most proud of is the fact so many of his past Buyers & Sellers send all of their friends and relatives back to Gateway ~ Doug says 'I must be doing something right!' Call Doug anytime if he can be of assistance to you.

Rosslyn Kennedy Senior Sales Consultant

phone 07 3283 4555

mobile 0417 633 228

Rosslyn Kennedy has been selling Real Estate for over 20years in Redcliffe. She and Doug have owned Gateway Properties since 1990.

Rosslyns grandfather retired from the family sheep station (between Winton & Richmond in Nth Qld) to the Redcliffe beachfront. Her parents bought the house 2 doors away from his aunt & the family spent several months of the year in Redcliffe & the rest in the bush. So Rosslyn has a lifetime connection to Redcliffe. As a child Sunday drives with her grandfather & parents consisted of looking at land to develop in Redcliffe & Deception Bay so real estate is in her blood!

Rosslyn has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Queensland & has worked as a journalist, also teaching & nursing as well as on the family property. All these skills have ideally suited her for her career in real estate which mostly involves listening to what people want & working tirelessly to help then. Many times real estate people must have the sympathetic ear & the compassionate shoulder to cry on.

As well as running a busy & successful business Rosslyn & Doug are very involved in the community with their Seaside Artists gallery in Cominos Arcade. The ball room is a delightful venue to provide support for over 60 local artists including the adult Kennedy children who are all artists.

Rosslyn has been invited onto various local committees for the future vision of Redcliffe & also the Redcliffe festival celebrations.

Cristin Kearney Property Management Consultant

phone 07 3283 4555

Cristin Kearney started in Real estate when her parents Doug and Rosslyn Kennedy bought Gateway Properties in 1990. Cristin started in property management when she was 18 as a trainee and moved quickly up to be a fully qualified Senior property manager at the tender age of 21. Cristin stayed in Property Management for over ten years and then moved to Sales administration for a few years. Cristin is a fully-qualified licencee and has had 20 years in the real estate industry.
Cristin did have a break from Real Estate for 3 years where she worked for Australian Maritime systems in Brisbane. Even though she enjoyed the change the travel on the Gateway (excuse the pun!) became a nightmare and she came back to Gateway Properties not long after her husband Danny joined the team in 2007.
Cristin and Danny have had a delightful bubbly little boy Trent William Kennedy Kearney born in 2009 who takes up much of Cristins time however she has come back part-time to help in Rentals, Sales and training and where-ever she is needed to help keep a happy stress free Gateway team!
