What our customers say

Bryce got our house sold to a very happy buyer in a couple of weeks. He was able to recommend basic improvements that we acted on, and we got a great price. All administrative processes were very smooth and stress free because Bryce knew all the likely scenarios and was able to give us concise info we could act on. Thanks so much Bryce!

I can highly recommend Bryce Gibson. It was time to move on from our investment property in Kurri Kurri. We approached a couple of agents with the aim of selecting the best one to sell our property. Bryce presented well, both in knowledge of the market strategies and also (importantly) suggestions as sellers what we could do to get the best price. Bryce is backed by an excellent team. In the end we sold for a price higher than our expectations with little hassles.

A. Constable

Bryce was a fantastic agent to work with when buying our first home, due to our busy work schedules he was able to organise inspections which worked well for the times we needed, he made the process very easy from start to finish! Couldn’t have asked for a better agent!

A. Pinchen

Everything he said happened. Very happy. Exceeded my expectations.

Bryce always goes above and beyond for every client and tenant he speaks to. Well recommended by friends, we are glad we made the choice of going with LJ Hooker Cessnock

J. Parnell

Genuinely nice guy who has "your" interests in mind . He goes the extra mile . I had a property that was hard to move and after a failed try by another agent who I knew personally Bryce came to the rescue ! City agents could learn a thing or two from him. I recommend Bryce for anyone buying or selling .

J. Stevenovic

What else can I say other than Bryce is the Hunter Valley's number 1 agent! Our home went online at lunch time Monday, by 2pm we had not 1 but 2 calls from Bryce & his fantastic sales team (Skye, Brendon & Lisa) requesting 2 private viewings for Tuesday as well as an open home for Saturday. After many groups went through we received 3 offers, one well above asking price! Sold in 24 hours - what more could you ask for?! The communication from Bryce and his team was and still is impeccable!


Bryce worked alongside me through a rough time. My property was trashed by bad tenants equating to 50k worth of damage. He helped me get the property back to a sellable state and after listing it for a month had sold it for 20k above asking price.

Bryce Gibson is one of the best real estate agents I have dealt with. Highly recommended to sell your property .

Joe S

Bryce was great from start to finish, always updating me as to the progress of the selling process. Bryce was great with the negotiation of sale, updating me every step of the way. Would highly recommend him to others wanting to sell.

Bryce is well presented and is a good communicator. He is friendly and extremely professional. So this is what made my decision on what agency. Sold in one day speaks for itself!

K. Taylor

Mellissa is very thorough and we have been impressed with how quickly she responds to enquiries. She has an excellent knowledge of rental practice and has always provided good advice.

We sold our home through Bryce at LJ Hooker Cessnock. The process was smooth from the beginning. Great Service. Easy to deal with all the staff in the Cessnock office. There was always someone to talk to if required. I would highly recommend Bryce and the Team of LJ Hooker Cessnock.

Great agent, very professional

L & J McNaught

Mellissa Gibson represented the LJ Hooker brand with professionalism, customer service and knowledge of the Hunter Valley / Cessnock market. She was a delight to work with in finding suitable tenants for our property and I have no doubt that the prospective tenants were impressed with her efforts in finding them a new home to rent. I look forward to working with Mellissa as we progress through the tenancy of our property. She is a great asset to LJ Hooker Cessnock.

L & T Vaessen

Bryce Gibson and the staff at LJ Hooker Cessnock were most professional when selling my property. I had actually bought the property through LJ Hooker Cessnock initially and was satisfied with the service, hence listing my sale with them.

L Fulton

Not a review a thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your guidance & professionalism in the sale of our home. Your constant positive attitude kept us going through the 2019 slump up to now achieving a sale price way above our expectations.

I would recommend Bryce Gibson to sell my Real Estate. He has sold two blocks of land for me, one we negotiated the price whilst I was overseas, he texted me the offers and we worked it out from there, I couldn't be happier. Well done Bryce.

We used Bryce Gibson in a previous sale and were very happy with him and his service, when it came to selling my grandmothers home we didn't look anywhere else, we only called Bryce to come out. Bryce is extremely knowledgeable, understanding and efficient. I have done and will continue to recommend him to my friends and family.

Very happy with the way in which Bryce conducted the sale of my property ... professionally, friendly and respectfully.


Bryce was rated highly online, from day one I knew he was the right fit to sell my property. It’s not about the commission, it’s about the end result. All of my dealings with the team have been amazing. Professional, polite and very proactive. This team is the cream of the crop. I believe they went above and beyond. Bryce is a man of great integrity. Judging by his team he is clearly a good leader. His team are a great reflection of him and the agency.
