What our customers say

I purchased an apartment from John McManus in an auction. John clearly is a professional who runs a very transparent campaign, and having a good team to assist him. I had my questions answered promptly and was thoroughly impressed with the whole process. I would have no hesitation in recommending John McManus to any potential vendor.

J Hatunen
Church Street, Chatswood

We made the decision to go with John McManus, as it was clear from our first meeting that he would be incredibly honest and transparent with us throughout the process. He was a straight shooter and that gave us comfort. Throughout the sale process, John was outstanding. He was in constant communication with us, keeping us informed on potential buyers and all the while helping us to understand how possible scenarios might play out.

R & P Mclean
Broughton Road, Artarmon

We were so impressed by John when he came to our house before we selling our house. He is so professional, patient, thoughtful and deep understanding the market. I would say he is the best agent and most experienced agent in this area. Moreover, he gave us lots of information besides selling the house, such as the trend of the market etc. Thank you John.Well done!

H Zhu
Eric Road, Artarmon

John and his team were an absolute joy to work with! From day one each of John's team members were highly professional and polite, ensuring nothing was overlooked during the campaign. John is a truly brilliant strategist and highly respected in the industry, I am truly glad we aligned the sale of our property with his organisation. He exceeded well and truly beyond the price we required for my family to move to the next stage of our lives and we are truly thankful.

M Rasheed
Rembrandt Drive, Middle Cove

Would highly recommend John to others as an agent - honest and straight fwd negotiations and great communications and market knowledge

Mr & Mrs Crozier
First Avenue, Willoughby

John was patient, friendly and professional in spite of me calling him weekly for months seeking information on upcoming listings! John and his team were professional and helpful all the way along in our journey finding a home. He is experienced, steady and a good negotiator. It has been a pleasure dealing with him and his team.

D Cooper
Sydney Street, Willoughby

Due to circumstances regarding our mother, we had to sell her property. Without hesitation, we called John to share our emotional journey of selling mum's home. I highly recommend John as his knowledge of the market is realistic without giving false hope to unachievable result. To our delight we were extremely happy with mum's outcome of her property sale price. She is now set and a big thank you John and to your team for inputing all your recommendations for best outcome.

Z Vlahos
Chiltern Road, Willoughby

I could not have been happier with John and his team. He has an excellent knowledge of buying principles and psychology and got us the best price possible for our house. He worked extremely well with the auctioneer and his partnering with Cordony Design was a driving force behind our success. I truly recommend John as a great real estate agent.

A Davis
High Street, Willoughby

John and his team preformed equal to and above my expectations. He kept me informed at every stage of the sales process which resulted in new records set for the Artarmon area. I would recommend John and his team to anyone considering selling in the Artarmon / Willoughby area.

T Rodger
Onyx Road, Artarmon

From the first meeting, John was the definition of professional. He said "I get selling your biggest asset", and backed up the words by the care he showed. He didn't refer to "potential buyers", he called them by name. The weekly updates were fascinating; the updates after each open house, illuminating as to our actual progress. When it got to the pointy end of the sale campaign he gave sufficient information to enable us to make truly informed decisions.

R McLachlan
Onyx Road, Artarmon

John presented a clear vision for the property to achieve the best possible sales result. He and his team provided regular informative written reports and updates on the interest in the property once it was on the market that guided our sales strategy. The result achieved at auction significantly exceeded our expectations. I would strongly recommend John and his team for their skill and professionalism and excellent outcome they achieved.

E Morris
Yarabah Avenue, Gordon

Our only hesitation in choosing John to handle the sale was that he would be too busy to give it the attention it deserved. We were way off the mark there. He and his team were without question the right choice. He is personable, down to earth, and knows the market better than anyone.

M Paterson
White Street, Artarmon

When it was time to sell our home in Chatswood 3 years ago John was the first and only agent I called. His knowledge of the area is second to none and he knows what his buyers are looking for. Our property was on a busy road and that fact alone would put some people off however John brought the right people through and our property sold very quickly. He and his wonderful team take much of the stress out of both buying and selling. We are really happy in our new home.

S James
Onyx Road, Artarmon

John and his team at LJ Hooker were outstanding. We would recommend John to any vendor without hesitation. He is truly the vendor's agent. His advice in how to run our campaign, his constant and thorough feedback and support were all exceptional. His recommended trades all did a remarkable job in very limited time. Thanks to John and his team we achieved an incredible result- way beyond anything we anticipated. We have used John previously and would never consider using anyone else.

P Clinch
Stanley Street, Chatswood

Having lived in the property for twenty years, moving was a huge event for us and we were extremely happy with the service and support we received throughout the entire process, from preparing the house for sale through to achieving the sale price we wanted. There is no doubt that John is an exceptional negotiator and we always felt he was 100 % on our side in wanting to achieve the best result possible! I would have no hesitation in recommending John and his team to anyone selling.
