We believe commendation is due to Lachlan Elder for the very successful sale of our Northern Beaches home. Lachlan diligently sought interested parties and made himself available not only for individual inspections but also kept us up to date with all aspects of the sale procedure, even emailing us late at night. Does he ever sleep? His attention to detail was outstanding. Lachlan, as a young sales agent at LJ Hooker sold us our home 28 years ago. This time as Manager of the agency he once again acted on our behalf completing a long association. His support staff lead ably by Josephine Cowling are testament to his leadership skills. The enthusiasm, business acumen and seamless procedure from inspections to the sale at auction could not have been bettered. A very happy outcome.

Judith & Ross Trewin - 9 Walker Place, Church Point

You are a very fine property man! Energy, commitment and honesty. The price was right, the deal was simple. It has been my experience that few real estate agents will take those extra hard yards to confirm a sale. My wife and I are grateful that you did.

Peter Rix - 27 Surfview Road, Mona Vale

Having now bought and sold three times in the Bayview area and having worked with your team each time, we thought we should express our thanks and appreciation in writing.” “With our last sale, in particular, you and your team displayed an impressive level of honesty, professionalism and efficiency. While we expected a professional approach with regard to advertising, follow up and feedback, what was particularly impressive was how you brought the skills of your whole team into play when we had a deadline to meet.

Tina Maniacco & Gareth Price - 6 Kara Crescent, Bayview

Just a quick note to express my appreciation on behalf of my mother for your excellent efforts in the sale of her property. You and your team were very considerate of my mother’s age and situation and the whole sale process was handled courteously and efficiently and a good result achieved.

Warwick Dolman - 140a Crescent Road, Newport
