Hi Chris I would like to offer my thanks to you and your team for achieving such a great result in the sale of my home. Your skilful management of the marketing process ensured both ongoing buyer interest and a buffer for me against the emotional stress of selling in the weeks leading up to the auction. I also appreciated your help in finding tradesmen to make my home ready for sale, also your ongoing prompt feedback after each open-day. I happily recommend you to anyone considering selling their home.

As executor of my mother’s estate I had to obtain three market Valuations on my mother’s house. Whilst obtaining these valuations I met Chris Akkawi, from L J Hooker Newtown. I was impressed by Chris’s professional approach and his knowledge of the local Newtown area. The marketing program he suggested turned out to be highly effective. Chris kept me fully informed throughout the marketing process with the updated reports and personal contacts. At the auction the team from L J Hooker achieved an excellent result which exceeded my expectations and offer my sincere thanks for the professional service that I received. I would recommend the L J Hooker team to anyone wanting to sell a property in the Newtown area.

Chris, Thank you for handling the sale of our house. At all times we found you friendly, easy to deal with and highly professional. We met you at our front door when you were in our street, which was our good luck. We felt we could rely on you: you always kept us up to date as the sale process unfolded, were prompt to respond to any of our queries and to take action to address any concerns on our part. In particular, you were brave to recommend we go to auction despite us receiving what we thought to be a good offer. It would have been easy for you to recommend we accept. The result, as you know, was a substantially better price. We will be happy to recommend you to our friends, family & anyone looking at selling their home.

Hi Chris, Helen and I just wanted to thank you for your efforts in selling our place in Station St. We were very impressed with your service and pro-active approach to the whole process, keeping us regularly informed of any developments and always being prepared to go the extra yard to help get a result. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone we know who may be in the same situation as we were. Once again, thanks and Best Regards.

Chris Akkawi was the agent who I purchased my home from and who I then engaged to sell the property I was living in at that time. He made the process of buying and selling within a very short timeframe all the more easier thanks to his professional yet down-to-earth and friendly approach. I really enjoyed working with him and the LJ Hooker Newtown team during this process.

I would recommend Chris Akkawi without any reservations, he is friendly, courteous, respectful and above all, he is professional. If I have any further real estate dealings in the Inner West Chris Akkawi would be the man I would engage.

Nick Moraitis and Chris Akkawi from LJ Hooker Newtown recently sold our house in Edgeware Rd Enmore for us. From the first they were courteous and friendly, helpful and informative, and very knowledgeable about the process. Both have an admirable understanding of the property market in the area, and gave us valuable information about recent sales and the selling points of those sales. Chris promptly provided incredibly detailed information on the attendances at open houses and the expectations and comments of the attendees. They also provided valuable data from the internet real estate sites. Their advice on the best marketing options was definitely proven correct. This enabled us to make sensible, informed decisions and set a reserve which met our needs and yet was realistic for the market. The auctioneer they appointed was the most professional I have seen, and willing to wait while people considered their next bid, rather than rushing to a faster but lower sale. Nick and Chris achieved an additional $76,000 over the estimate for us. I can completely recommend them as thorough professionals, and a pleasure to deal with.
