Hard Working, Helpful and FriendlyVendor Review - Prior to our first meeting Damian well prepared and had a detailed plan to propose. He then followed up our numerous questions and phone calls prior to us signing with him for the sale of our unit. During the campaign Damian was extremely professional and worked hard to generate interest then consistently provided us with valuable & accurate feedback after each inspection, he was also always available to answer any questions we had along the way. Overall very impressed with Damien’s negotiating skills during the last week to deliver a sale price that was above our expectation.

I would personally like to thank and congratulate you and your team for the fantastic result you achieved this morning. Well done to everyone involved; your efforts have been well appreciated and the final result has exceeded expectations. I hope your agency receives some positive commentary given the record result. Although the sale of the property came about due to a sad event in our lives, the result today will assist the beneficiaries greatly. Thanks again.

Alex Brennan (Vendor)

Stewart, I would like to thank you for all the work you did towards the sale of 9 Wangalla Rd Riverview. The time you spent with us when we first decided to sell and the advice and comments you made were most useful. We were very impressed by the way you described the running of your Agency. We knew that we were dealing with a professional in all sense of the word. Most of all may I say that I really appreciated your skill as an Auctioneer. I have been to a number of auctions over the time and must say that your skill was outstanding and most professional. Your initial approach to the crowd with your straight forward attitude created a relaxed but interested atmosphere. As time went by tension could be felt and upon this you worked. Stewart , many thanks for your great job and the wonderful and most unexpected result. I wish you many more years of outstanding Auctioneering.

Vince Newton (Vendor)

Both Carmen and Stewart gave sound advice and provided good feedback and encouragement through the short period of open house. Stewart's auctioneer skills really came to the fore and we were all delighted with the auction result. A big thanks to all involved.

A big thank you to Stewart, Michael & the team at L.J Hooker lane cove for the way they ran the sale of mum's property at 18 Mooney St, Lane Cove. From the start Stewart knew exactly how he thought the property should be presented, advertised & how long the campaign should run for. He had all the necessary contacts to prepare & style mums house prior to sale & Michael was always available to assist with anything we needed. Stewart kept me up to date after each open so I knew exactly how much interest there was in mums place as it progressed. He was friendly & easy to deal with & showed great compassion in understanding how much the home meant to us as a family. As the Auction date approached, Stewart had secured a large number of parties who had pre-confirmed their attendance at the auction. On the day of the auction he amazed us with his detailed knowledge of the area & created a friendly atmosphere, all in all an outstanding Auctioneer, Resulting in a price we could only have dreamed of. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Stewart & his team to care for & achieve a wonderful price for your home too.

Frank and I wish to take the opportunity to thank you and the team at L J Hooker lane Cove. Auction day was managed with flair, giving it the air of a gala event and putting the bidders at their ease. The result was a pleasing price, reaching the higher end of your estimate. It proves you have the expert’s touch in marketing and an uncanny feel for pricing the individual product on its merits. Equally as important you kept us informed throughout the process. You were there for us at all silly hours when we needed to chew on your ear. All this was graciously given in an honest down to earth manner without pomp or affectation. For this we thank you. Thank you for proving us right in choosing you to sell our property. Warmest regards,

Heather Bassi

My daughter and I would like to thank you for your wonderful service. I am so much appreciated, Thank you again

We could not let the recent sale of our Lane Cove property, at a record price, pass without thanking you for your excellent work on our behalf. Many years ago we rented our investment property through L J Hooker Lane Cove and were always pleased with the service which your Property Manager, Gretta Toms, delivered. It was this memory which prompted us to ask you to sell our property. You could not have been more helpful in advising us of the sales strategy which you believed would deliver us the best price, namely auction. This advice gained us a record price. Even though we did not live in Sydney during the open house period, we found the whole selling process a very positive experience. You gave good feedback on parties who had viewed the unit and consulted us on questions of offers when they were presented. In the end, your advice to go to auction and to not accept offers during the open house period served us well. To achieve a sales price around $20,000 higher than a comparable unit sold for one week before ours went on the market, is testament to your good advice and tremendous sales ability. You were also a very nice person to deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to future vendors and purchasers.

Bronwyn and Philip McLaren

Matthews Avenue We are writing to express our appreciation for the manner in which you handled the sale of the above property. At all times you have navigated through the sale with cheerful expertise. From day one of the campaign the professionalism of your office showed through and the communication and consultation made the process go almost like clockwork. We would also like to compliment the rest of the helpful staff, especially Lisette, who made sure everything ran smoothly. For us the auction day was a highlight with the Hooker Lane Cove personnel out in force. Of course, with this kind of preparation, the result was outstanding. We would not hesitate to recommend Stuart and the team at L.J. Hooker Lane Cove for any Real Estate matters.

Michael and Susan Richardson

Wharf Road, Longueville I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for all the great work you did throughout the sale of my Grandmother's property at 4 Wharf Road, Longueville. You made the whole process so easy, during what could have otherwise been a very stressful time. The whole family was thrilled with the fantastic result you achieved for us at the auction — especially Mum and H From the initial meeting through to the campaign and final sale you handled the whole campaign so thoroughly, flexibly and professionally. I particularly appreciated your constant personal communication with us throughout the whole process. Stewart, you and your team were an absolute pleasure to deal with and I will definitely be recommending you highly to anyone needing real estate assistance. Thank you very much again and I look forward to dealing with you again.
