The staff at LJ Hooker were wonderful! All the staff I had dealings with were very friendly and professional. They were able to answer all my inquiries in a prompt manner. They were true to their word, if they said they would get back to me they did so.

LJ Hooker Cessnock and Kurri Kurri Great work done to keep tennants in.

Jose - landlord

Team at LJ Hooker Cessnock has been put through a lot in regards with our investment property and they showed professionalism and attention to detail on all levels. Mellissa and her team are very helpful and knowledgable. They won’t put up with average, and they don’t hesitate to go above & beyond for a client. We’ve been with them for 3 yrs now, have had our house trashed, drug addicted tenants terminated and they also went through tribunal on our behalf. We were with a different real estate before (for about 5 years) and LJ Hooker Cessnock can’t compare. They are nice human beings & they love what they do. I’d recommend them to anybody

Having been very skeptical about Real estate agents, based on our 5yrs experience, we were ready to sell our investment property. We were hitting the wall with our heads over simple issues, our previous agent was never available to take our call, didn't advertise our vacant property, didn't even bother to take photos or report on maintenance issues. When they "forgot to acknowledge" that our tenant wasn't paying her rent for over 2 weeks, we decided that enough was enough. I cried on my friend's shoulder and she suggested me to contact Mellissa and Megan whom she had known for years. I rang Mellissa straight away and although we haven't been with her for long (it's only been 2 months) we feel that we're being looked after well. Her team has already addressed many issues that the previous agent failed to even notice (holes in walls due to missing doorstops on a brand new property) Clearly they must have seen that before, but we were never told. The house is now 5 yrs old and I believe we neglected it by choosing a wrong manager. Mellissa is the light at the end of the tunnel for us now. When the previous agent made us want to sell, Mellissa is making us believe in investments! We're very grateful to have found her!

Zuzana K

I really appreciate the hardwork of Mellissa by giving us the best advice. Mellissa is very approachable person and she has a lot of time and patience for her customers. She has always returned my calls regarding my property and I wish her every success in her career.

Since appointing L J Hooker as our property manager, our experience has been nothing short of outstanding! From securing a tenant to managing all day to day matters, Mellissa and the team continue to exceed my expectations. L J Hooker’s consistent level of professionalism together with their friendly, timely and proactive approach are quite simply, a landlords dream. L J Hooker certainly ticks all the boxes! I could not recommend Mellissa and the team highly enough – they have made this process very easy, efficient and hassle free!

S. Kells - Landlord

In late 2013 we purchased land and had a house built in Cessnock as an investment property. At that time I visited and interviewed several local Real Estate Agents and found that Mellissa Gibson was a stand out amongst the others. Her professional attitude and obvious desire to assist in anyway that she can made my decision to engage her services to look after our property an easy one. We have since had a change in tenant and Mellissa has managed their departure, finding new tenants and negotiating their lease extremely well. We are delighted with the services that Mellissa has provided to date and look forward to working with her into the future.

S & G Pracy - Landlord

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank Mellissa Gibson for her proficiency, compassion, and commitment to urgently finding my family a beautiful home. Cameron and i contacted all the real estates in Cessnock when we needed to urgently find a new rental for our family; sometimes as a 'tenant' real estate agents can make you feel not as important, however Mellissa went out of her way to show us a property on Friday afternoon (6 days at that stage to find a new home) I was starting to panic as i was getting no where with other agencies. Mellissa understood the predicament we were in with the last owner/landlord and showed a high level of understanding and empathy. Within two hours after viewing the property Mellissa phoned all our references and employers and we were approved. Mellissa's dedication is commendable. Thank you so much Mellissa for everything you have done for my family, you provides us with an amazing house that is now 'home' to us. We are extremely grateful. You are an amazing Real Estate agent and we would love to recommend you to others.

N Down & C Hudson - Tenants

Pooja and I are extremely happy with the service that Mellissa has provided us for our Investment property at Stonebridge Dr Cessnock. Mellissa is helpful, thorough and a confident person. She showed/proved to us her capabilities by getting our Property rented in a short space of time. In addition, Mellissa has accommodated our requests and stayed composed, when we were worried about various things about the property. We have no reservations in recommending Mellissa to our friends. We plan to transfer our other property under Mellissa's care. We wish Mellissa the very best and Thank her for her efforts.

P & S Chugh - Landlord

As a first time Investment Property owner, i have relied on Mellissa for guidance with my property. Mellissa has at all times been professional, polite and accurate on local market knowledge. I would not hesitate Mellissa to manage your investment property.

M Beatly - Landlord

My wife and I recently entered this property market through a financial planner who usually controlled the pathway for the uninitiated. Obviously this meant a 'pre suggested' Real Estate Agent has been selected. Our first verbal interview with pre selected agent left us relatively unimpressed & concerned that the potential tenants may be of similar character, so we sought to contact other agents in the local area. My first phone call with Mellissa impressed me. She answered all my questions showing an obvious & invaluable knowledge of the area & market. Shes spoke in a manner which was both concise & courteous, having me feeling quite comfortable we were on the right path for selecting an agent which would best represent us. Mellissa also took time out on a hot Saturday morning to meet us on site, time i knew had been borrowed from her own. This revealed to us her dedication to her work & commitment to us, prompting the confidence within us to appoint her as our agent. We were not disappointed, a pleasant surprise soon presented as Mellissa found us a suitable tenant within two weeks, certainly living up to our expectations. She has liaised well with both the builder and ourselves and has always kept us up to date with all matters. Mellissa has certainly gained our trust as a professional and her honest and courteous manner had made this whole experience pleasurable, thankfully we deterred from the original pathway!

P & K Hobill - Landlords

I have found Mellissa to be very friendly, she was polite and came across as very professional. I look forward to dealing with Mellissa in the future.

K & L Adams - Tenants

Mellissa has been our main contact, she has been cheerful, courteous and efficient and a pleasure to speak with - She is definatelty worth more than you are paying her - whatever that is!

A & J Johnson - Landlord

As a rental property manager Mellissa has offered me assistance beyond my expectations, IT MAKES SWITCHING TO LJ HOOKER WORTHWHILE!

N Bernabe - Landlord

I am extremely happy with the level of service and professionalism I received from Mellissa. As this was the first time I have leased out a property I wasnt 100% sure of the whole process. Mellissa was able to take me through each step of the process and was very organised for every one of our meetings. These factors along with her friendly and approachable nature made her stand out from the other 6 agents I met at my property. I feel confident in trusting LJ Hooker Cessnock and Kurri Kurri with my property and highly recommend them.

Melissa Matias

Mellissa is a pleasure to work with - she is always courteous and polite. She is most often on top of all issues and generally responds very quickly to any queries we put her way. Her core is always clear and concise and she applies the appropriate attention to detail as and often called for. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Mellissa in the future.

W. Slender - Landlord

From my experiences with Mellissa I have found her to be professional, very understanding, approachable and prepared to take on any request from a tenant. She found me the perfect property and was very prompt to advise me that I had been approved. I'd like to think of Mellissa not only as my Property Manager but as my friend as i feel i could call her for any problem i have with my property no matter how small. If more Property Managers made people feel this way i'm sure there would be less Real Estate - tenant friction.

P. Maloney - Tenant

We have LJ Hooker Cessnock looking after our rental property for us and we have found Mellissa to be very thorough and professional in her dealings with us. We are very happy to date and Mellissa didn't take long at all in finding tenants for our property we look forward to a long and professional friendship with Mellissa.
