What our customers say

See all

We had to sell my elderly mum's home for her and it was a very emotional time for her and us. Scott Hughes made it so much easier, he always had a chat to mum and his advice to us regarding preparing mum's home for sale was spot on. He was always helpful, respectful and he knew his stuff. He sold mum's home very quickly which really took the pressure off us as we lived 3 hours away and were travelling up and down to Wonthaggi to prepare mum's home for sale. We were exhausted and the quick sale was fantastic. We also got a good price for mum's home. Our whole experience with Scott as our estate agent was positive. We had someone recommend Scott to us and they were right, he was the agent to go with and we do not hesitate in recomending Scott as an agent to anyone else.

To Scott, Victoria and the team at LJ Hooker, It has been a very positive experience having you sell mum’s house. You were fantastic to deal with and very professional. I also appreciated the fact you allowed tradesman to pick up the key from your office to do the insurance work in mum’s home, that saved us a long drive down there just to let the tradesmen in to do the work. I think as I told you Scott I asked a few people in Wonthaggi who they would use as an estate agent and your name was given to me twice and they were right. You have a lovely way about you…I suppose the word is REAL and not arrogant the way some estate agents can come across. Anyway I just wanted to thank you all. Regards
