Located in Brisbane, Australia, Sandhills Pacific is the office location for reps serving buyers and sellers throughout New Zealand and Australia. Bringing the global market to Australia and New Zealand, while at the same time reaching out to local buyers with the combination of MarketBook for Australia and MarketBook.com.au effectively connects buyers and sellers both locally and globally.
