I don't think I have thanked you for your work and help in selling my house so quickly and without much worry for me. You did everything so efficiently and pleasantly. (I think David's help with the "styling" was also a great help). I am settling in gradually at Fernbank and I think it was a good move. I like my Unit. It has been a pleasure meeting you and Noelene. With very best wishes to you both for the future.

Prior to selecting an agent to sell our late mothers' apartment, we had discussions in the apartment with four Real Estate Agents based in the St Ives area. Matthew Johnson presented very well and was the most optimistic regarding the valuation of the apartment, and bearing in mind Matthew has sold the previous two apartments in the block of eight, the family were very confident that he could deliver. As a result we appointed Matthew to conduct the sale. Matthew provided detailed reports and potential buyer comments after each open for inspection, and at a time when the media was reporting a decline in Sydney property prices, Matthew was able to achieve a record price for a 3 bedroom apartment in the Hillcrest estate. This result was achieved in less than 14 days which was an outstanding performance. The family could not be happier with the result, and we would all strongly recommend Matthew to anyone in the area thinking of selling their property.

Greg Fletcher

"It was an absolute pleasure having Matthew assist us in the sale of our apartment. We are based in Queensland, so it could have been an extremely difficult sale, but Matthew kept us up to date on everything happening from showings to the eventual finalisation of the contract. His professionalism was really appreciated and made the sales process completely painless. We would definitely recommend Matthew and the staff at LJ Hooker St Ives. Thanks again for all your hard work and professionalism."

Karin Britz

Thank you to Matthew Johnson of LJ Hooker St Ives for his attention, advice and courtesy during the sale of my mother's property. Matthew is professional, diplomatic and hardworking and he delivered a fantastic result in a very short time. Having Matthew appointed as the selling agent made a positive difference to the sales process and I wouldn't hesitate to use his services again.

Thank you so much for your help selling our house Matthew! When I realised that we had the place on the market within 2 weeks from the moment we first decided to sell and then sold in less than 2 weeks on the market I was astounded. The quick sale added to the fact that we exceeded our hoped for price so significantly, is I am sure due to your fantastic advice about how to prepare the house for sale, the marketing campaign and your responsiveness to both us, our tenants and the buyers. We so appreciated your attention to detail and could not be happier with the outcome we achieved.

Lisa Charet

I just wanted to thank you so very much for the great work you showed in selling the family house in Wahroonga but more recently my unit in Cremorne. Matthew and Noelene came to see my unit, (which I had been renting out), before the renovations commenced and said to me that the selling price would be much improved once everything was completed and also said that they would come back and re-evaluate. At the end of the day my unit was auctioned for considerably more than I expected. Needless to say I was overwhelmed by the result and would like to thank Matthew and Noelene for their professionalism in organising the sale. L.J. Hooker, St Ives is a family oriented business who provide the best possible care to their clients and I cannot recommend them highly enough. All the very best and thank you once more.

V. Halvorsen

We are writing to thank you for the effective manner in which you managed and executed the sale of our townhouse in St Ives and our subsequent purchase of a unit at Fernbank. We are very grateful for your ready assistance and reliable advice at all times. You always provided accurate information and acted upon it without any fuss! We appreciated your help in both transactions and have found the outcome very satisfactory. We wish you every success in your active real estate business.

Eric & Hazel Young

I wish to give accolades to Matthew Johnson who sold our home in a couple of weeks. Matthew was a delight to do business with, never over the top and always understanding. There were a few agents I had through the home and I had no problem in choosing Matthew.

Marion Curtis

This is a letter of thanks for the wonderful effort you made in selling my mother's apartment. The desired sale price was achieved prior to auction which was what my siblings and I preferred. As the apartment was unoccupied it was important that it was shown in its best light. You did this by arriving early ensuring that it was well aired and the porch swept. Thank you. Thank you also for encouraging the buyer of the property to settle prior to the auction date and driving to my sister's house to have her sign the contract. Making this extra effort was appreciated. Your communication either via phone or email was excellent.

Mark Walker

Thank you for all your help in selling my step mothers unit. We were extremely grateful for all you did to get us such a fantastic price - a record for Fernbank I believe! You were very persistent, very professional, and really knew your market. I particularly appreciated your prompt communication and the fact you kept me up to date with everything that was going on. You were a pleasure to deal with and I have had no hesitation in recommending you to anyone selling or buying in the area.
