What our customers say

See all

Simon handled our sale with ease and professionalism and we cannot rate him high enough. He kept in touch all the way and achieved a great result. Thank you Simon!

Joseph and Linda Plant & Hilda Styring, Kallangur

Simon was recommended to us and we are very pleased that we chose him as our agent. From the very outset he made us feel at ease with his laid back, but professional, approach. He is an excellent communicator and kept us up-to-date throughout the entirety of the sale process. We are extremely happy about the quick sale of our house and the price obtained by Simon. Would definitely recommend him - his experience and knowledge of the area is second-to-none!

Kirsty Marshall and Fiona Turnbul, Kallangur

Simon was wonderful all the way through the sale keeping us fully informed. Nothing was too much trouble. Totally professional and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone selling their home.

Dennis and Debra Garrett, Kallangur

Simon was very helpful throughout every stage of our purchase of the property. Quickly answered questions we had and communicated very well with all parties to ensure a great outcome for all.

Dominic & Sarah Hyam, Mango Hill

LJ Hooker Kallangur had been managing my investment property for almost 20 years, so it was only natural that when it came time to sell that I engaged the services of Simon who has been selling properties with LJ Hooker Kallangur for longer than I had been a client. As this was my first experience selling, I did enquire with other agents to get a feel for the market and see what other agents had to offer. None of them could offer what Simon had; experience with the local market, and because I was an interstate seller, the willingness to manage the entire sale on my behalf. His advice regarding what to do in order to prepare the house for sale was honest, as was his advice with regards to marketing and price point. Selling a house from a remote distance could have been difficult, but Simon took care of everything, from arranging new carpets, painting and cleaning, to any outstanding maintenance issues, keeping me informed at every step both with the preparation for sale and during the sale. In the end, the whole process ran very smoothly and only took about two weeks from start to sale; in fact, the house was on the market for less than week before it was under contract for more than asking price. This is testament to Simon's wealth of knowledge and experience of the market and extensive base of prospective buyers, something I doubt other agents can come close to comparing. I highly recommend Simon as a seller's agent and would not hesitate engaging his services again.

Paul Roe, Mango Hill

Simon was professional in every aspect in selling our house he knew the market and the best way to market and sell our house and in record time which saved us a lot of money, would recommend him to anyone and will use him as first choice in selling or buying a house in the future.

Warren and Melissa Swinburne, Kallangur

Very dedicated professional with an in-depth understanding, of both the local market and vendors the situation.

Ryan Forbes, Kallangur

Simon really assisted me in the purchase of my first home, he listened to what I wanted & visioned it along with finding my first home! His communication is speedy & informative. For myself who knew nothing about buying or the market he did an excellent job at explaining it all & making my first home purchase a stress-less situation. I would definitely recommend Simon Booker & when I need another agent he will be my go to!

Lisa McKenzie, Kallangur

Simon advised us during the refurbishment. It was good feedback on how to present the house. The house sold within a week of being on the market.

Mark McBain, Kallangur

Michael and Jessica Harris

We have employed the services of Simon Booker on a number of occasions. We have found Simon to be a very proactive real estate agent who has achieved good results within short time frames for us. We have found Simon to be a great communicator who provides thorough and honest feedback reporting after each property inspection and regularly throughout the sales process. Simon is a focused sales professional who is always courteous and a pleasure to deal with. We would not hesitate to recommend Simon to family, friends and colleagues.

Mel and Pat Heijboer

Simon was extremely proactive in finding us a buyer, he was able to have bring us with multiple offers before we even went to market. He made the process smooth and communicated with us every step of the way. When it comes to selling I wouldn't look anywhere else, this is an easy recommendation.

Andy K

This is the second time I have used Simon to sell my house. The process was simple and pain free. My house was on the market for no more than a couple of weeks. Simon communicates well and keeps you updated regularly throughout the sale. He is honest about the value of your property and what offers to expect. I would not hesitate to recommend Simon to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Troy Clout

Simon Booker changed my opinion of real estate agents, he is professional, honest and very hard working, he went above and beyond my expectations with his communication and negotiation skills. I am delighted with the result I got with my sale and he will be the only agent I would use in the future, I recommend Simon Booker to anyone looking to sell their property.

Merilyn Enright

This is my fourth property purchase with Simon Booker and I wouldn't use anyone else. He exceeds all expectations and goes above and beyond his role. He is extremely helpful and also very knowledgeable within his field. His down to earth nature and honesty goes a long way and I have no hesitations in referring Simon to friends, family and colleagues.

Angela Bell

Simon has done a very professional job in not only selling my property, but also with his invaluable advice and assistance in preparing the property for sale. Simon has gone way above and beyond anything which could be expected, particularly his special approach to marketing. Having purchased the property from L J Hooker Kallangur, 14 years ago, their professionalism in staying in touch with me over that time strongly influenced me to give my property to Simon for sale. There was no question that this would occur. I greatly appreciate Simon's expertise and friendly, considerate manner and would highly recommend him.

Roy Langsford

I am writing in regard to the property you sold for us. Both Vic and I would like to THANK YOU very much for the quick sale of this property. We were impressed by the effort you put into selling this house for us. You kept us informed along the way of everything that was happening. We believe you went beyond our expectation for this sale as we believed that it would take a lot longer than one week to sell.

Victor & Wendy Muchow

I first met Simon some 18 months before actually listing my property with him. His patience and understanding our situation was amazing , I am in sales myself and am naturally wary of other salespeople his communication skills are to be commended. Furthermore his experience and confidence in our property resulted in a sale price of over $50,000 more than our expectation. I can sincerely recommend Simon and his team at LJ Hooker Kallangur as they truly delivered !!

Tim Worsley

Simon listened to us from the outset, offered options and advice but at all times was receptive to our input and preferences. He was in contact with us constantly regarding negotiations, small issues and advice on handling some problems, which very quickly were no longer problems. With Simon there are no bells and whistles, performing clowns or magicians promising unachievable outcomes. Unlike some agents who think the process is all about them and their ego, Simon presents as acting 100% for us, the clients. Simon has sold 2 properties for us in the last few months and we are very happy with the results and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a straight forward approach to real estate matters.

Alf and Paulette Lucas

Simon was absolutely fantastic to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable and conducts business very professionally and efficiently. I highly recommend him.

Steve Lange

I cannot believe the professionalism of Simon. Not only did we list on Monday and sell on Thursday of the same week but Simon went way out of his way to keep us informed of the entire process step by step. As we live interstate this was very important to us. Our house had some issues that required immediate attention before settlement and although it was Xmas week somehow Simon still managed to get it all done, and at a very cheap price, to enable settlement to proceed. I cannot recommend Simon highly enough to any seller/buyer who wants nothing but the best from their agent. We have other properties to sell and Simon will get to sell all of them for us. As a Customer Service Manager I know what to expect and Simon delivered over and above anything I expected. Well done Simon, I am amazed.

Ross Thomas

My wife and I would highly recommend Simon Booker if you are thinking of selling your home. Simon was very easy to deal with and had a great knowledge of the current market. Simon negotiated a extremely good price for us and had our home sold in under one week.

David Esparon

I was very satisfied with the level of service and expertise Simon provided throughout the sale of my property and since have kept contact details as I will be using his services again in the future.

Ryan Taylor

Simon goes above and beyond what is required of him. A pleasure to deal with as he does his best for his clients. I would definitely recommend Simon as your first choice.

Jim Ryan

This was our first experience at selling a house. Simon made the whole process simple, sensible and seamless. His professional and thorough approach gave us confidence and we were not disappointed. Thank you Simon for the time you took and the way you guided us through.

Robert and Vicki Williams

As a 'spec' builder with over 40 years experience I've used many real estate agents. Simon Booker has provided the best performance and service I've ever experienced in my time as a seller. I would be happy to recommend his services to anyone looking for a quality agent.

Ian McBain

I recently sold a property through Simon Booker of LJ Hooker real estate at Kallangur. I had another 2 agencies give me appraisals on the property - both suggested figures much lower than Simon actually achieved. I went on a skiing holiday with the extra money I received because of Simon's terrific negotiating skills.

Jim Isherwood

I put my house on the market with a 'cut price' agency. I quickly discovered the only thing they 'cut' was the service. They kept trying to get me to take offers up to $40,000 less than my asking price. I changed agencies to LJ Hooker Kallangur and Simon Booker fot me a sale $28,000 higher than my previous best offer. I couldn't be happier with the outcome! I have learnt my lesson with 'cut price real estate' agencies. I now realise that the old saying 'pay peanuts, get monkeys' is very true.

Jason Johnston

I am writing to thank you. I am very grateful and extremely impressed with the price and the speed at which you sold my house recently. It was amazing. After only 4 days you had an interested buyer. They inspected the house and then made an offer. Throughout the day you negotiated with them. By evening the contract was signed after you had obtained a price which I was very happy with. As well as your excellent negotiation skills, I found you to be very understanding and very polite.
