It has always been a pleasure dealing with LJ Hooker. For the last three years I have noticed a great level of professionalism from LJ Hooker team, particularly Kate Bailey and Maree King. They look after my properties, renting and managing them to the highest of standards. I have no hesitation in recommending my friends to use their services. I am extremely happy with the performance of the LJ Hooker team, and look forward to continuing our business relationship for a long time.

Mark Sayfi, owner in Forest Lake

My partner and I recently enlisted Kate Bailey from LJ Hooker Sunnybank Hills to manage the leasing of our home. Kate was incredibly quick to respond to my initial enquiry and visited me in person the very next day. We were extremely impressed with her professionalism and promptness, and quickly assigned her to advertise the property. The property was advertised beautifully (thanks to Kate's photographs and write up) and a tenant was found within the first week. Kate has been on hand every step of the way and went out of her way to provide us with a referral letter and photos of our home to assist us in our own rental applications interstate. We could not be happier and feel our property is in safe hands under Kate's watchful eye. We would recommend her and LJ Hooker Sunnybank Hills to family and friends in the future.

Olivia Meloni and Glen Newbury, owners in Parkinson

We found Kate to be very enthusiastic and professional in her dealings with us. Our property was listed with another agency and was vacant for more than two months as they were unable to secure a tenant for us. We listed with Kate and had three offers within the week. We were astonished at how quickly she was able to find a tenant for us when the property had been vacant for so long. We found Kate to be very proactive and very knowledgeable of the rental market, and she showed genuine interest in our property and finding a good tenant for us. We have no hesitation in recommending Kate Bailey to anyone looking for a top quality agent for managing their property.

Parmend & Shaleeni

My experience of renting my property in the beginning was an absolute disaster, mainly because I had engaged the wrong real estate company to handle my business. I was giving up on it and had intended to sell my property when I was lucky enough to meet Kate Bailey from LJ Hooker at Sunnybank Hills; that's when my luck changed. I found her to be extremely helpful in all aspects of the real estate business and the company has everything in place to manage my business, so I have more time for myself. Just ask them about the Tradies, a fantastic product, and any problems you have they will answer you straight away and not keep you waiting if you have a property you want to rent or sell these are the people you deal with I am very satisfied with their unique service.

Wayne R., Owner in Drewvale

I would just like to express our absolute gratitude in the superior customer service you provided for the renting of our property. Your advice has always been very professional and courteous. Considering the market conditions in December 2014, you did advise us about the realistic rent we should expect and we did have a lot of interest in the property subsequent to your advice. I am sure that you will be providing the post rental services in terms of quarterly status reports, condition report of the house etc., also to a very high standard. I would have no hesitation and will be referring your services to all my friends and colleagues. LJ Hooker is very fortunate to have you and your experiences in their employ.

Devendra and Nandini, Owners in Sunnybank Hills

It has been a pleasure to have the LJ Hooker Sunnybank Hills Team look after our family's investment properties. Kate Bailey is very professional with the complete rental property research information, email correspondence, ads and photos. The clear inspection reports with updated information of potential tenants and their feedback allowed the property to be rented out quickly. Because we’ve had a very good experience with one rental property, we've transferred the management of our other rental property from another real estate agency to this one to be managed by Kate.

Teresa F., Owner in Sunnybank

The overall experience has been fantastic. Both you and Maree have been extremely helpful for the renting of this property. Your professional advice has made the whole process much easier for me. Thanks for your help! I will certainly recommend your team to my friends.

Richard Y.

Kathy and I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for taking over the management of our property and getting such an excellent result so quickly. I guess it was to be expected that you would find us a suitable tenant but what was not expected was that it all happened in twenty four hours. We really appreciated all the calls from yourself, Li and Sheryl about the inspection, the application and all the advice around preparing the property for a tenant. We are extremely thankful for the very professional manner in which everything has been handled and have great confidence that we don’t have to be at all concerned about how this property is being looked after now that your team has responsibility. Thanks very much!

Paul and Kathy Moore

It has been a pleasure working with Kate and her team. We are pleased to see that Kate has a great understanding of the rental business and all our queries are promptly answered. We look forward to a long term relationship with LJHooker and it's always comforting to know that the person you are dealing with have been with the same company over a period of time.

Vu Huynh

I would like to express my absolute appreciation in the excellent customer service Li and Kate provided me for the renting of my property at 32 Aster Place, Calamvale. Both of you provided a professional courtesy in all dealings with me. Within a short time frame you successfully secured long term and appropriate tenants for my property. My house is a high end market property and Kate's advice to me was that we should expect a rental return between $500 to $550 per week. Li and Kate were able to secure the maximum amount, to which I am very grateful. I would have no hesitation and will be referring your services to all my friends and colleagues. L J Hooker is very fortunate to have both of you and your experiences in their employment. I am looking forward to a long relationship with you. It was a real pleasure to entrust our rental property to the staff at LJ Hooker, Sunnybank Hills as the outcome of their excellent performance has been GREAT!!
