What our customers say

See all

We write to thank Stephen Terides and his team at LJ Hooker Gymea following the recent sale of our mother's home at Kirrawee. After considerable research, we appointed LJ Hooker Gymea as our agent. From our first meeting with Stephen, my sister and I, acting on behalf of our mother, were confident in our choice of agents to manage the sale of our family home of over 60 years. From the outset, Stephen's knowledge of the local market and his management of the campaign was outstanding and characterised by professionalism, accuracy and honest, sound and considered advice. His strategy was clearly explained to us and consistently applied. The on-line marketing campaign was informed by a broad database of potential purchasers who would be interested in the particular nature and location of our property. Additionally Stephen and his team went beyond what could be reasonably expected of agents in drawing on their knowledge of the local market and recommending quality contacts to assist us with preparing and presenting Mum's property for sale. Auction day was a team effort with nothing left to chance by the sales team; once again, professionalism at its very best. In excess of 80 people attended with our property sold for well above the very realistic reserve, testimony to the focus of the campaign, knowledge of potential buyers and the team approach. At all times Stephen took a personal interest in us as his clients, stepping us through the many aspects of selling, and instilling confidence in us of a successful outcome. Thank you Stephen and the team at LJ Hooker Gymea. We are very happy and satisfied clients and are recommending you to our friends in the Sutherland Shire.

My experience with Steve Terides of L.J. Hooker Gymea can only be described as exceptional. He was very personable, professional and had a very good knowledge of the local market. As I needed to sell my home fast and at a good price, Steve from the beginning worked very hard in every aspect as well as providing great advice on how to present the inside of the house to it’s best advantage. My home was listed in the Domain and internet and Steve immediately received an exceptional number of enquiries from interested buyers. The open home viewings were very well attended and Steve kept me well informed including weekly updates every Saturday and regular phone calls. After only four open home viewings my home was SOLD through Auction for well above reserve. Steve is truly a genuinely honest and sincere person and does not fit the preconceived real estate agent profile at all. Having him on my side was an advantage to me when I know there were a number of similar properties for sale in the same area. Steve handled the whole process efficiently and professionally and I thank him for being the consummate professional. I will certainly recommend him to all my friends and contacts.

Just wanting to pass on my praise for Stephen Terides for his tireless efforts throughout the search of my property. Whilst I acknowledge that agents work for the vendor, Steve was at all times considerate towards me as the buyer - we had some hurdles along the way and this sale process became slightly more drawn out but Stephen communicated with me at every step, gave me great advice and helped calm my already shattered nerves! Professional, switched on, dedicated and always willing to help - what more can anyone ask of someone when taking the big plunge of buying property - I am one very happy customer!

Paul Ellis

We would like to thank Stephen Terides for managing the sale of our home in Kirrawee. We were very impressed with all aspects of Stephen's work. His calm, genuinely warm and friendly approach and professional manner inspired confidence in his ability to sell our property. Stephen's assessment of the market and estimated selling price of our property proved to be accurate. We appreciated Stephen's regular and prompt feedback from each oth the open houses and his discussions with potential buyers. Stephen very competently and effectively managed the work of the entire team in the four week campaign culminating in a successful Auction. Stephen kept us informed of all developments and provided valuable advice through the whole campaign. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Stephen Terides to anyone seeking to sell their property.

I had several agent over my property before I met Stephen Terides, who was in fact selling another property in Grays Point. Stephen's openness and friendliness impressed me immediately and in doing so eliminated any thoughts of other agents. There isn't enough I can say about Stephen - outstanding in all efforts to finally achieve a result. Having lived in my home for 37 years the thought of selling was so very difficult - it has always been my home - never just a house - and Stephen seemed, to his credit, to understand my connection with my home - he never had me feel foolish for my beliefs/feelings. Stephen is a credit to your agency - he has such a warmth and yet remains professional at all times. His job must be very difficult to find the fine line between purchaser and vendor, and some tap dancing act he needed to do!

I would have no hesitation recommending Stephen Terides to potential vendors. All contact I had with him was handled in a friendly, enthusiastic and professional manner. The service exceeded my expectations in terms of sales price achieved and sale turnaround time, with my property selling within two weeks of listing. I have no doubt this can be attributed to the knowledgeable sales team in place and the targeted marketing strategy employed. Thank you for a pleasant, quick and painless outcome.
