Graeme was great and easy to deal with. Thank you for a quick sale

Friends recommended that we ring Graeme Allchin of L J Hooker Ocean Grove when we decided to put our house on the market late in 2016. We were immediately impressed with Graeme's comfortable manner and professionalism when we met him. Throughout the (very short) selling period and during the after sale period we continued to be impressed by Graeme's thoroughness in keeping us up to date with the details of the sale process. We couldn't have been happier with the service Graeme provided! He was always available to answer questions and certainly made us feel that our wishes were a very important consideration in the selling process. This has been the third family house sale for us and by far the most straightforward and enjoyable due largely to timely information sharing on Graeme's part. We'd be pleased to recommend Graeme Allchin to anyone considering entering into such an important sale.

Graeme was very professional in all our dealings. He made a very difficult situation much easier because of his friendly and helpful manner. He understood our situation and developed a strategy which delivered a better than expected outcome within a very short time frame.

Graeme Allchin, with the very capable back-up of Tania Morris, became my trusted "friend in the business" when selling my late father-in-law's property at Ocean Grove. They were right on top of everything and were particularly good in the final negotiations and settlement once we had an agreement with a buyer. Because the sale depended on our buyer selling another place, and Graeme was handling that for them, he and Tania became the glue that held the whole negotiation together, and they kept things very nicely balanced while our buyer's buyer worked out their finance so both deals could go through. "Excellent" seems hardly enough to describe Graeme's outstanding efforts. Another word to add would be "compassionate" as he showed great empathy for us, our buyers and our buyers' buyers, which kept things on an even keel even when the buyers' buyers had some hiccups in their financing. The icing on the cake was when Graeme also found a needy family for some furniture and appliances that we needed to dispose in the final days before settlement - he is a great credit to the Hooker name. Once we were signed up and the process was under way, it was clear that all the staff, from receptionist onwards, knew who we were and what property we were selling. Tania Morris was truly superb. Honestly, it would be hard to imagine a better team than Graeme and Tania. I have only sold a few properties, and most of my contact with agents has been as a landlord, but I have never dealt with anyone more helpful and professional than Graeme and Tania.

We were very pleased with the sales team good feed back after open inspections and have recommended this agent to friends.

Shirley Forster

I appreciated Graeme's friendly style and personal and respectful approach, and his experience and knowledge of the local market also. It was a contrast to some of the more strident sales styles I had experienced elsewhere. The support from Tania in the office was also very much appreciated. The warmth and friendliness of the staff and their personal approach made even the 'open for inspection' times pretty stress free. I'd happily recommend Graeme and the staff st LJ Hooker's in Ocean Grove to anyone buying or selling locally.

Jane Carrigg

Graeme gave us a realistic appraisal. We appreciated his honesty.

Family of Marion Hodgson

The sale of my house was an unusually long & difficult process. Graeme Allchin was at all times honest with me, pointing out any problems that he could see arising along the way. He discussed with me carefully the options & the pitfalls that could possibly arise after accepting a $1000 deposit for a settlement three months into the future. There were all sorts of problems along the way with buyer. Graeme communicated well with my buyer at all times and was careful to keep me well informed. I trusted him & his advice and was very pleased with the result. Graeme sold my house for $16000 more than the listed price - a very good result indeed & more than I had expected. I have recommended & will continue to recommend Graeme into the future if anybody I know wants to deal in property.

Coral Barker

We were extremely happy with the professionalism of Graeme and the staff and grateful for all the help given to us in achieving our dream of purchasing property in Ocean Grove. We were so happy with the service and found Graeme to be sincere and true to his word. Thank you for all your help at the front office. We found the girls very considerate and friendly as well as efficient and cooperative.

Paul & Michelle Pryor

Darren and I would like to personally thank you for persistence and honesty in helping us purchase our new property. When the going got tough you kept at it and we are very grateful for that. Thank you for your integrity, professionalism and sense of humour when ours was waning! You have restored our faith in Real Estate agents and should be very proud of your work ethic. Looking forward to a drink with you when the SOLD sticker finally goes up!
