We worked with Gerard recently on a successful campaign for our property in the Chatswood area. Gerard always kept us up to date each day on progress throughout the campaign. What impressed me overall was his personal unflappable style which I expected would have resonated well with the interested parties for our property. By working the potential bidders in his own way throughout the campaign I believe we maximised the potential return on our sale.

N & A Yeung

Through his connections and knowledge of the market, Gerard helped us to achieve our dream of getting a foothold in the Sydney property market - by bringing us in the loop for an off-market property. Right from the inspections through negotiations and settlement period, he remained professional, courteous and kind. He helped us with suggestions on appropriate tradespeople for our renovations and shared tips freely. It was a refreshing experience to deal with a real estate agent who looked after his client's interests and also was a reassuring presence for the buyers. I would not hesitate to recommend Gerard to buyers and sellers alike. When we need to sell in the future, we know who we will call.

I would like to thank Gerard for his honesty, professionalism and responsiveness throughout the buying process. Gerard and the team at LJ Hooker Willoughby/Artarmon minimised the usual stresses of property purchasing by being open, fair, empathetic and calm throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend Gerard's services in the future.

In November 2015, with our children grown up and working or at university, we made the decision that it was time to think about selling our large family home. We wanted to move sometime in the following couple of years to a property more suited to the change in family dynamic. As part of that process we had about half a dozen different real estate agents in to give us their view of what the property was worth and, from their perspective, and what would be involved in selling it. We let them know that we weren't ready to sell at that time, but would be in 12-18 months. Although their opinions about what the property was worth varied somewhat they all put together professional reports that made it difficult to decide which agent we were probably favouring. In the following 2-3 months a couple of the agents did follow up with us just to check where our thinking was and also report on activity in the market around us. Gerard Fitzgibbon from LJ Hookers in Willoughby was particularly persistent and informative, without being presumptuous or pushy. In September, 2016 Gerard indicated he had at least a couple of potential buyers who were interested in the style and location of our property. We said we did not want to go through a full blown marketing/sales campaign at that stage but would be prepared for the property to be viewed/inspected off market. From that point both Gerard and David Gillan did a fantastic job of managing potential buyers whilst enabling us to carry on with our normal day to day living with minimal disruption. They kept us fully informed over the next month, i.e. throughout the period the house was for sale, off market. They were responsive to our requests, kept us fully advised throughout, were flexible in terms of when we said the house was available to view, were open and honest about the feedback they were getting from potential buyers and did not pressure us in any way regarding how we should/shouldn't present our property, or compromise on price. In short, we felt they fully supported us, as sellers, throughout; we would not hesitate in engaging them again and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone planning to sell in the areas they service. We would be happy to talk to anyone who might be thinking about selling their property about the great service LJ Hooker Willoughby provided to us.

We wanted to take the opportunity to thank yourselves and the team for the recent sale of our property. Not only were we very happy with the overall result we were incredibly pleased with how the sale process was managed throughout. The fact that John and the team had daily dialogue with us ensured we were well aware of how interested parties saw our property and gave us the faith that everything was being done to ensure the best result possible. The whole team is incredibly professional and the depth of service and knowledge of the local area certainly sets you apart from your competitors. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending LJ Hooker Willoughby/Artarmon to my friends and colleagues and if I have the opportunity to use your services again I would jump at the opportunity Thanks for a fantastic result!!

I am a first time property investor who has been looking for an investment property in the past few months. I have had several recent experiences where I had accepted offers overturned by vendor in the last minute, also known as 'gazumping'. It left a real sour taste in the mouth. In my latest attempt to purchase an apartment last week, I met Gerard from LJ Hooker Willoughby/Artarmon. He came across as a very friendly person who went out of his way to provide an unscheduled inspection for me. He was patient in answering all the questions I had. During negotiation, he kept me updated and once again, provided services that many agents would rarely provide, such as delivering contracts personally. The purchase was a smooth process and I recommend anyone looking to buy a property to enlist Gerard's services.

Many thanks Gerard for assisting us with the sale of our Roseville apartment. We really appreciated how you kept us in touch with what was happening with prospective purchasers and the market generally. Your excellent communication skills, calm manner and attention to detail, with John in the background always made us feel that we were in the safe hands of experienced experts in this area and consequently I believe we achieved a record price for a unit in Roseville at this time.

Gerard has put a lot of effort into selling my house. He is very reliable, hardworking, graceful and helpful. He kept me informed of every step of the sales process and made everything easy for me. He only brought one buyer through my home and was able to sell my house privately in two weeks with no advertisement. He is willing to go the extra mile to achieve the deal. Prior to the sale of my home, he was calling me regularly to provide market updates and trying to find a suitable home for us. I would strongly recommend him. Thanks Gerard!

Thank you Gerard for assisting us find our family home. Your patient, polite & genuine manner were refreshing and greatly appreciated - especially at the end of a long day after multiple inspections with kids-in-tow. You were always thorough, reliable and helpful - providing any requested information fully, promptly & clearly. What impressed me most though, was your initiative and 'thinking outside the square' in trying to find us a suitable home. Your efforts went above and beyond most agents I've met (and I've met a lot)! Thank you!
