Alex was sensational right from the start. He kept me informed throughout the whole process and guided to make the right decision to sell the property via Auction. The property was presented brilliantly and the whole marketing process was a great success. As for the end result, I could not be happier and I sold the property under the hammer the day of the Auction. I would highly recommend Alex and his team at LJ Hooker Southport

Dear Alex, Meg and I wish to extend our appreciation and thanks to you, Mr Peter McCoy and the relevant staff members for the sale of our property. We found Peter’s presentation and manner to be impeccable. His ability to close the sale in such a short time frame reflects his high calibre of professionalism and expertise in what can only be described as an extremely competitive arena. We would be pleased if you could also extend our appreciation to your staff members who provided prompt correspondence regarding our sale including swift payment of deposit monies. We appreciated not only the promptness of actions but also the courtesy extended by all of your staff members to whom we came into contact with. Finally, to you yourself, we say thank you for taking the time to attend with Peter and discuss with us all details relevant to the sale including a most reasonable commission fee. Meg and I can indicate we would not have any hesitation in recommending your organisation in the future.

R. Youngberg

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for your efforts with selling our Town House for us. This was our first experience with selling so it was nice to know we had someone willing to take the time in answering all our question and not making us feel our question were not worthy. Beth and I were blessed with the commitment from you as it felt you were riding the high and lows standing right beside us. Beth and I were extremely impressed with the level of commitment shown throughout the journey, you were committed to looking after our interests every step of the way. You were never short of helpful advice when asked & we would be happy to deal with you and LJ Hooker Southport regarding future real estate transactions. Ragards,

Alex McCormack, Principal of L J Hooker, Southport has been our principal agent since 2001. A property enquiry & subsequent purchase was the beginning of a twelve year business relationship. A relationship that has been strengthened during the intervening years through property advice, property management, an investment property sale & the recent sale of our family home. Alex's professional manner is a credit to the real estate industry. He always conducts business in the best interests of the vendor. A challenge when one is the purchaser! In 2004, following the eviction of a tenant, from a then self-managed investment property, we took the decision to sell the property & called Alex for a market appraisal. His advice was not to sell because he believed there was still capital gain to be realised. Advice that may surprise given he stood to gain a sizable commission from a sale. Advice we shall long respect. In 2010 Alex sold an investment property we had held for a number of years. Following a brief marketing campaign he achieved an amazing return in a challenging market. A return that established a property-price high for the complex. (please check this claim for 17 Duet Drive, Mermaid Waters) The decision to sell our family home was taken following a great deal of deliberation. Our choice to engage Alex & his marketing team as agents was a given. His thorough market research & advice was appreciated. Our wishes for the marketing program & associated costs were respected at all times. Following an internet marketing campaign & inspection by appointment only, Alex secured a timely sale. A sale that achieved a return we were delighted with. We note it remains the highest price paid for similar Mudgeeraba acreage properties sold. Thank you Alex. Thank you Penny. Thank you Mr Hooker! We look forward to a continuing association with Alex & his staff at L J Hooker, Southport.

Philip & Irene Bell

Thank you so much Alex! After months of searching you found the perfect home for us. We certainly tried your patience and took up a lot of your time, but you were always patient with us and the kids. We are loving the new place and can not thank you enough

Prue & Simon Hartley

I would like to strongly commend the work of Alex and LJ Hooker Real Estate throughout the recent purchase of our property in Southport. At all times Alex and the team were easy to deal with and professional in their approach. He acted positively on our behalf and his extensive knowledge of the local property market was invaluable. As a result we were delighted with both the property itself and the deal he helped to broker. I would have no hesitation in using the services of Alex and the LJ Hooker team in the future as they helped considerably to ease the stress of buying property.
