We have dealt with Tony Dekker for over 20 years. We strongly support the person we are dealing with first, then the Agency and since LJ Hooker is the strongest and best known, we had a win-win in every way. As Tony took some time off, his handing over of the sale etc. to his son showed us that he has followed in his father's footsteps and is very competent, personable and professional. We loved his enthusiasm and total interest in delivering a great result for us. Well done Lance

I wanted to pass on my thanks for a job WELL DONE and speak highly enough of the LJ Hooker Port Macquarie team. Throughout the process, Lance, Adam & Jamie worked together as a team to deal with the challenges that arose and held the sale together. They even chased up the council on my behalf demonstrating the willingness to go above and beyond more importantly they delivered a RESULT!

A big thank you to Lance and the team in ensuring a smooth sale of my unit in Port Macquarie. Lance was professional and I received reports on all aspects of marketing, leading up to the sale. It was indeed a 'painless' experience and I would happily recommend the LJH team to anyone wishing to sell their property.

Lance's knowledge of the market and price bracket applicable to my property, his enthusiasm and prompt communications (given that I was overseas at the time), contributed greatly to a successful sale within one week of coming on to the market. Many thanks to Lance and the LJ Hooker Port Macquarie team.

My wife and I came to Port Macquarie just over 2 & 1/2 years ago and settled in a beautiful house in Crestwood Estate. However, as time passed, we realised that we were looking for a smaller property than the one we had purchased. Fortunately for us, we’d met a couple (Chez & Baz) who had had a very positive experience with a local Real Estate agent, when they needed to sell their house just over 18 months ago. They had done their ‘ground-work’, checking uut the agents in Port Macquarie and came up with their choice. After listening to them talk about this agent, my wife and I decided that we needed to arrange a meeting with him, to judge for ourselves. Thus our journey of selling our property had begun. On our first get-together, both my wife and I felt very confident that this person would be there for us! We both quickly felt it in his enthusiastic personality. The next phone call was to inform him that we entrusted him with the marketing and selling of our lovely home. A big decision made easy! That man was LANCE DEKKER of L. J. Hooker, Port Macquarie. At our first ‘real’ meeting, to determine the process that we’d use to sell our house, Lance suggested that we should consider auctioning our property, as it had very attractive appeal to a variety of possible buyers – home owners & investors alike. Following our decision to ask Lance to sell our house, he told us of a practice that his company does. All the other agents who work for L. J. Hooker, PM would come to our place for a brief inspection. By doing so, they’d all be aware of our property’s potential and thus be able to promote it with possible buyers who came to see them – the old saying, “Many hands (and minds) made light work”. A great idea – very clever of whoever came up with the original idea. Throughout the process of ‘open-house’ viewings and enquires (phone, internet etc), Lance always kept us fully informed. He told us the positive, as well as any negative comments, so that we really felt we were totally in the picture, regarding the value of our house in the minds of others. We found that very beneficial for our own thinking, as to its value. As the day of the auction drew near, Lance met with us again, along with the auctioneer, Tony Dekker, to go through the possible scenarios on the day. This was a great idea, as neither my wife or I had ever been involved with the auction-method of selling. It certainly was informative and quite eye-opening. To get to the climax, we sold our house at auction, much to the dedicated and committed effort that was done by Lance, prior to the big day. Both my wife and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending LANCE DEKKER to other people, wishing to get a dedicated, conscientious and genuinely friendly real estate agent, to get the best possible outcome for their property. Thank you, Lance. PS. If we ever need to sell again, hopefully we’ll know where to find you. Again, THANK YOU, LANCE.

Dear Lance, Thank you again for helping us sell our property. As novices to the world of real estate, you took time to explain the whole process of ‘selling by auction’. At no stage did we feel pressured in the decisions we made and you made some very insightful suggestions which were of great benefit to us. You certainly were working for us as we regarded you as a member of ‘our team’ by regularly keeping us informed, supporting us through what could have been such a stressful time and offering timely advice. You were a pleasure to work with, as were the other members of your team. We would be utilizing your services in the future.

David and Kathy
