I highly recommend Margaret Kennedy Principal of LJ Hooker Carindale to anyone seeking to sell their property in the Camp Hill area of Brisbane. Her level of expertise in the real estate industry has built up over many years and as a result the sale of my house progressed quickly without any hassles. Her savvy advice guided me skillfully through the selling process. Margaret possesses strong organisation and communication skills and is both professional and reliable. Furthermore, I was kept up to date at all times and felt she listened and responded carefully to my questions. I always felt she had my best interests at the forefront. These qualities were key in providing a positive outcome for me in selling my property.

After the tenants broke their lease and the decision was taken to sell, I was concerned about the amount of work necessary to prepare the house for sale, as well as the state of the Brisbane market. Arriving at your office to collect the keys, I was pleasantly surprised both Margaret and John were able to make time to go through the property with me there and then. Bouncing ideas off of them saved me a lot of time, effort and money. They were able to confirm which improvements were necessary, and what would add value – based on the target market for the area. Margaret even dropped by to check on progress ! I was aware of the tough market conditions, as well as the amount of comparable properties for sale in the immediate area. I was fully prepared to put the house back on the rental market and wait for a better time to sell if necessary. From the first visit Margaret believed the final sale price would begin with a “5”. I must admit to being a little sceptical, but I was proved wrong – thankfully ! I believe we achieved an excellent price for the house. The whole process was a positive experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend L.J. Hooker Carindale.

I would be only to happy to recommend Margaret Kennedy at L J Hooker Carina to anyone looking for a Real Estate Agent. I was selling my late mother's property in unusual and complicated circumstances. Margaret was very understanding and supportive throughout the process. She was very knowledgeable about the local market and her advice on how to approach the sale was spot on. She kept me well informed at all times. She inspired confidence and her strategy proved most effective. I could not have been happier with the outcome.

When I decided to put my house in Bernecker Street on the market, I arranged for Margaret Kennedy and John Burns from LJ Hooker Carindale to sell it for me. I found them to be very efficient arranging advertising and open house. Due to their interest and activity my house was sold in 3 days. I would have no hesitation in recommending LJ Hooker Carindale to future clients as I am sure they would be as happy as I am with the whole experience.
