"You will not find better!"

We would like to thank John, Carlos and the rest of the team at L J Hooker for everything they did to achieve the sale of our home at 17 Cooney Road, Artarmon in July 2016. Having lived in the property for twenty years, moving was a huge event for us and we were extremely happy with the service and support we received throughout the entire process, from preparing the house for sale through to achieving the sale price we wanted. LJH organised an excellent marketing campaign, including securing a two page feature as House of the Week in the Sydney Morning Heralds Domain and a state of the art 3D walk through tour of the house for the web site. We were also very pleased that we engaged the Stylist recommended by John and have no doubt this led to a higher sale price than we would have otherwise achieved. John spoke with us almost every day through the sales campaign and was always open and honest about his expectations of prospective purchasers. There is no doubt that John is an exceptional negotiator and we always felt he was 100 % on our side in wanting to achieve the best result possible, encouraging us to stand firm on hold our nerve when necessary! I would have no hesitation in recommending John and his team to anyone selling a home in Artarmon. You will not find better!

"The best!"

Due to circumstances regarding our mother, we had to sell her property. We had John in the past where he sold 2 of our properties in the Willoughby area at a great price. Without hesitation, we called John to share our emotional journey of selling mum's home. John was the best and also very understanding regarding our situation. He was very professional and always updating the progress of tracking potential buyers. I highly recommend John as his knowledge of the market is realistic without giving false hope to unachievable result. To our delight we were extremely happy with mum's outcome of her property sale price. She is now set and a big thank you John and to your team for inputing all your recommendations for best outcome.

"He and his wonderful team take much of the stress out of both buying and selling"

When it was time to sell our home in Chatswood 3 years ago John was the first and only agent I called. His knowledge of the area is second to none and he knows what his buyers are looking for. Our property was on a busy road and that fact alone would put some people off however John brought the right people through and our property sold very quickly. When I found 21A onyx Rd, Artarmon I felt reassured that John was the selling agent. In a nutshell John does exactly what he says he's going to do. He and his wonderful team take much of the stress out of both buying and selling. We are really happy in our new home.

John and his team performed equal to and above my expectations. He kept me informed at every stage of the sales process which resulted in new records set for the Artarmon area. I would recommend John and his team to anyone considering selling in the Artarmon / Willoughby area.

"Outstanding! Would never consider using anyone else"

John and his team at LJ Hooker were outstanding. We would recommend John to any vendor without hesitation. He is truly the vendor's agent. His advice in how to run our campaign, his constant and thorough feedback and support were all exceptional. His recommended trades all did a remarkable job in very limited time. Thanks to John and his team we achieved an incredible result- way beyond anything we anticipated. We have used John previously and would never consider using anyone else. We have dealt with many agents over the years and none have come close to providing the service that John did.

"A fantastic agent! You will not regret your decision"

We made the decision to go with John McManus, as it was clear from our first meeting that he would be incredibly honest and transparent with us throughout the process. He was a straight shooter and that gave us comfort. Throughout the sale process, John was outstanding. He was in constant communication with us - keeping us informed on potential buyers and all the while helping us to understand how possible scenarios might play out. It was also abundantly clear that he had our best interests in mind - not once did he encourage us to look at or take an offer pre-auction. He and his team were happy to put in the time and the yards, and let the process run its course on the basis that it was an auction property and that would deliver the best result. The broader team at LJ Hooker Willoughby/Artarmon, led by Carlos, Nessie & Gerard amongst others were also excellent operators and an integral part of the sale. We would highly recommed John and his team, to anyone selling their property in the area. He is a fantastic agent. You will not regret your decision.

"The result achieved at auction significantly exceeded our expectations!"

John McManus at LJ Hooker Willoughby was recommended to me by a relative who had previously engaged John to sell his property. John helped me market and sell my late fathers estate, a process complicated by the fact I live interstate. The service provided by John and his team was outstanding. John presented a clear vision for the property to achieve the best possible sales result and guided me through the property preparation, marketing and auction process at each stage. He gave frank and sensible advice on the best actions to take to enhance the property and maximise its appeal and skilfully negotiated with potential buyers. He and his team provided regular informative written reports and updates on the interest in the property once it was on the market that guided our sales strategy. The result achieved at auction significantly exceeded our expectations. I would strongly recommend John and his team for their skill and professionalism and excellent outcome they achieved.
