happy with the results

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.

Alethea Haviland - 63 Simmons Street, Enmore

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.

Denis Cox - 37 Ferndale Street, Newtown

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.

John and Helen - 34a Station Street Newtown

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.
