Managing Director/Licenced Agent
Walter (Wally) Cooper is a respected rural property and livestock business owner and sales agent. He is the industry leader behind RPL. Before becoming a licensed Stock and Station agent, Wal spent his years in the stock camps of the Northern Territory and Western Australia’s Kimberley region. He then graduated from the Gatton campus of the University of Queensland with an Associate Diploma of Applied Science (Agronomy). Wally has worked and managed properties in the Cloncurry region of North West Queensland, the Longreach region in Central West Queensland, and the Quilpie region of South West Queensland.
He acquired his own property west of Longreach, Queensland in 2001, the same year the passionate aviator gained his fixed wing licence. In 2012 Wally added a commercial helicopter licence to his resume and uses this for mustering, while managing country for various clients.
Wally has been a licensed real estate salesperson since 2008, graduating to a full real estate agent’s license in 2016 and started RPL with his wife Sally in 2017. Wal understands his clients better than most due to his long running experience on the land. Wal and Sal run their family property in Longreach with the same knowledge and values he implements into every transaction with his clients.
Sal was raised on a family cattle property near Goondiwindi, Queensland, where she enjoyed her childhood and early adult years learning about life on the land. She then went on to study agricultural science and has spent many years working in business logistics and events, as well as in a national management role with the Leukaemia Foundation. Sal also headed programs for indigenous youth and young indigenous men and women.
As an integral part of RPL, she keeps the team accountable and ensures that the business is running at a high standard. She really does keep the wheels turning in the engine room of the RPL office. When Sal is not in the office, she is wearing multiple hats including being ‘mum’ to Gus and Monty as well as helping Wal run the family’s property ‘Tanamera’, South West of Longreach. Together, Sal and Wal have created a thriving business in RPL, which models many of the values and attitudes that they hold themselves accountable for when running their station day to day.
When Sal isn’t working on the station or in the office, she is spending her free time with her children and is a devoted community member, help sporting clubs, committees, and organising events in their local town of Longreach and the central west surrounds.
Over the years, Hannah's family have owned a range of different country from a beef and cropping operation near Dingo, a sugar cane farm in the pioneer valley to the Blackall cattle property they now call home. This upbringing has helped Hannah to have a broadened understanding of the agricultural industry she loves.
Hannah previously worked as a livestock agent in the Blackall/Longreach area and obtained both a real estate and chattel auctioneers license before joining the RPL team in 2019.
