I thought it’s so easy to complain about a service when we don’t get what we ask for, however I believe we should praise the service that we receive that is outstanding and beyond our expectations, which is exactly what Richard Bastable at LJ Hooker Port Macquarie provided me with throughout the process of selling my two properties. Richard is an example of a true professional. He knows the market very well and has pride in the services that he provides through LJ Hooker and as an individual. There is very few in the industry with poise, experience and innate ability to peel back the layers to get to the heart of a client’s needs and an appropriate solution(s). This was very evident when I spoke to Richard initially wanting to put my two properties on the market. Richard is gentle in nature and respectfully forthright, which are excellent qualities to have in his line of work. The whole "selling" process has been seamless with Richard, nothing is ever too hard. I am a client to two other Real Estate Agents. The experience differs. With LJ Hooker Port Macquarie and particularly Richard the experience is a satisfying one. I know that I am dealing with professionals throughout the organisation. Richard has the ability to instil the confidence, and experience required to choose the most appropriate decisions for my real estate needs. There are so many ways the actions of a real estate agent can affect the individual negatively, therefore it is more noticeable to discover an exception, a professional like Richard Bastable that does it right. Richard brings an extremely high level of maturity and integrity to the real estate industry which is why it was important for you to know. I would recommend Richard to my family, friends and colleagues without any hesitation.

Richard Bastable is a highly professional and attentive agent. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He was prompt to return calls and to follow up on all my requests. He was knowledgeable and helped me with answers to questions. Richard was very helpful and made the whole purchase a pleasant experience for me, including following up with the leasing agent to get me a good long term tenant who moved in two days after the property settlement! Highly recommended agent.

From a grateful SMSF investor

Richards youthful enthusiasm combined with seasoned support from his colleagues at LJH Port Macquarie provided easy access to trust and optimism as a vendor which resulted in a great sale. My property was in an area that traditionally took months to turn properties over but, with Richard taking the lead, the turnaround was quick and at a great price. Richard was honest and up front with his advice and as our partnership evolved, he saw the potential in the property and the target market that it would appeal. I think he has a natural flair in his chosen field and I would not hesitate in recommending him as an agent.

M & S Sciascia

Richard has been bright and positive nothing has been too much trouble for him. Together with Debra, they make a mighty team I have enjoyed the whole process in dealing with Richard, especially as a first-time seller. My first impression has never wavered and I would recommend him, in fact, have already done so, to my friends and colleagues. Although I have had some stressful times I never felt that I was going through it alone. Thankyou Richard for all that
