What our customers say

See all

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.

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!

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.
