P & M Close

Both Steven and Joshua were professional and in my circumstances of selling another person's property, they went out of their way to accommodate our special circumstances by driving a long distance to talk to the owner and listening to the special need when dealing with the owner. Thank you Steven and Joshua

The LJ Hooker Belmont Team were excellent Josh, Rodney and Bec have made a usually very stressful experience enjoyable and we would thoroughly recommend them.

Lyall Gren, Eleebana

This is the second property we have sold through LJ Hooker Belmont and Josh O'Doherty. We have always found him to be professional and friendly. As we are located in another State, it was important that we had a real estate agent on the ground who we trusted. Josh consistently kept us in the loop and I could always trust that he was doing the best for us. I always appreciated his friendly and honest demeanor and am pleased to say that on both occasions his appraisals were realistic and met the sale outcome. Josh and his team often went above and beyond to help us prepare the property for sale and settlement.

JG Matthews Properties Pty Ltd

Selling with Joshua O'Doherty and his team was easy. Josh's patience was exemplary when it came to waiting until I was committed to listing after initial difficulties with the tenant in the property. Josh facilitated the right team to manage a difficult tenant to hit the market fast and get a more than desirable outcome from the sale in less than a week from the property hitting the market. A very trustworthy team. I am very grateful for the professional way in which Josh and his team managed the entire process.

Dear Joshua Just thought we would drop you a line to say thank you and how pleased we were with the result you and Steven achieved for our family, After interviewing several local agents we felt your approach to marketing, method of sale and our expectations around fair fee matched for service matched our own. You, Steven and your team communicated effectively and promptly throughout the campaign ensuring we were kept up to date with all aspects of the process from marketing, negotiating our sale in 28 days through to exchange and settlement process. The method you suggested uncovered 5 qualified buyers and the end result you achieved was in excess of our expectations & well above the original appraisals from the local agents. We have no hesitation in recommending yourself and the team at LJ Hooker Belmont to anyone who is looking to sell their property. We look forward to working with you and the team again when the opportunity arises.

Yan Zhang, Warners Bay

Josh O'Doherty has always done the right thing by me with regards to both selling and buying property. He has great local knowledge and is extremely easy to deal with. I would highly recommend him and his team.

Sue Potter, Belmont

Very satisfied with the whole experience, Joshua helped reduce the normal stresses associated with purchasing a property.

Patricia, Eleebana NSW

Joshua O'Doherty is a straight-talker, a characteristic that I value and seek. He is professional in his dealings and approach, and while he knows his market well and is a font of local knowledge, he is not arrogantly so and is receptive to suggestions/requests. Joshua and his team provide consistent and informative feedback throughout the sale process. Joshua and his team actively pursue presented sales leads and proactively pursues potential leads. Additionally, and critical in our most recent sale, lead CREATION proved to be an invaluable attribute - Joshua is quite the conjurer! I would strongly urge anyone considering selling to contact Joshua O'Doherty before finalising your decision!

T.M. Belmont

Joshua O'Doherty and the LJ Hooker team have made the recent sale of our apartment a breeze. Joshua ensured a seamless transition from rental property to sales liaising with the property management team and coordinating our property staging and aesthetic changes to ensure our property looked amazing when it was listed. Living interstate with a young family and working long hours- josh took all stress out of the process and made sure we were updated all the time. The whole process from start to settlement was so easy and professionally put together. Very much appreciated.


With both of us working long and varied hours we approached the thought of selling our house with much trepidation. However upon meeting Josh we found someone that showed genuine enthusiasm to sell our much loved family home. Josh was always flexible to our needs and was appreciative of our situation. Josh was always punctual and had an answer to all our concerns. His team from the front office all the way to his sales assistants were spot on. Josh negotiated a price we were extremely happy with and his communication was a high point. We have no hesitations in recommending him to anyone else selling their house.

Steve and Bronwyn

We were so impressed with Josh's character, we felt secure instantly with his ability to sell our home the way we wanted it to be sold. Nothing was ever a problem and he understood how emotional the event was for us. Josh is real. He is down to earth and very easy to communicate with, which is important considering he needs to communicate effectively and be trusted by potential buyers!

Rachael Jeffree & Mat Renfrew, Belmont

We were so impressed with Joshua's dedication. Josh and his team give your property everything they can to promote your home. We had a lot of feed back from friends who are thinking of selling later in the year who won't hesitate to give Josh a call. Thank you Josh it was a pleasure meeting you, and a very smooth sale from start to finish. We have had a lot of feedback from people who loved the video. I think it's worth paying extra for this link. Leanne and the rest of the team helped to keep the standards high. They were professional, polite, approachable & just nice people. Locals who know the area that's why Josh and his team are on top. As I've said Josh and his team are fantastic! We didn't need to worry about a thing. They had everything covered. We couldn't be happier. Thank you again guys.

Jon & Bernadette Poole

Dearest Josh, I want to take this opportunity to thank you so much for arranging the sale of my property in Belmont. Your efficiency, dedication, integrity and a great communicator - keeping me up to date on day to day activities was much appreciated.

J. Black

We recently sold our property through LJ Hooker, Belmont. Within a week, Josh had found a buyer and the property sold above what we expected. I have no doubt this was due to the sound advice and sales strategy we were provided with, not to mention Josh once again being spot on with his predicted sale price. The entire process was effortless with LJ Hooker being on the front foot with communication. The entire experience, including the sale price, greatly exceeded our expectations.

M. Svihla

I wanted to let you know that our family is so thankful for selling our mothers house in such a professional and friendly manner. As you know, this is the third house you have sold for our immediate family and I really do not know why anyone in Belmont would use the services of any other real estate agent. You have always kept us updated on a regular basis and met every promise you gave to us. The thing that I respect most about your services, is that I now feel that we are friends as you have helped several members of my family with their real estate problems, including assisting with bidding on their behalf at auctions, inspecting houses on their behalf, giving your valued opinions, and all this has been with no financial interest to yourself. We can't thank you enough Josh.

L. Sams

Hello all at LJ Hooker Belmont, Thank you to Josh and your team for your fantastic result in selling our home. It was an amazing result, achieved in such a short time and beyond our expectations. Your staff are friendly and helpful and we thank them also. We are pleased we chose Josh from LJ Hooker to care for the sale of our home.

M & A Russell

We would like to say a big thank you for all your wonderful help when selling our house at Warners Bay. You conducted yourself with professionalism and skill.

I am very pleased to provide this client reference for the LJ Hooker Agency at Belmont and for Joshua O’Doherty, a director of the agency. Recently LJ Hooker Belmont acted as the sales agent for me on the sale of an apartment in Belmont. A purchaser was found very quickly and an excellent sales price was achieved. Unfortunately some damage occurred to the property just before settlement of the sale, such as to put the sale in jeopardy. I was very impressed with the way in which Mr O’Doherty dealt with both parties during negotiations for the continuation of the sale. He was thoroughly professional and diligent in attending to my interests (as the vendor) while at the same time fair and ethical in his dealings with the purchaser. That the sale went ahead to the satisfaction of both parties was in no small measure due to Mr O’Doherty’s negotiation skills. The presentation of the LJ Hooker Belmont office is outstanding and the agency provides excellent advice as to price and buyer preferences, based on quality research on current market trends. Staff members are always pleasant and courteous. I have no hesitation in recommending Joshua O’Doherty and the LJ Hooker Agency at Belmont as a real estate agent that offers a quality ethical service.

We would like to express our thanks for the Studio Life Photography voucher that was sent through after buying our house through LJ Hooker. Steve did a wonderful job with the photos! Our friends and family have commented on how good they look and this has led us to tell them the story of how we came to get the photos- thanks to buying our house through LJ Hooker! Thank you!

A & G Bettison

Thanks for helping us secure our very first home. You made this very non daunting, enjoyable and positive experience.

Matt, Billie and Charlie

It is with great heartfelt gratitude we extend our thanks to the manner in which you handed the sale of our late father's property. At the time we carried many emotions and really appreciate the way you explained the means in which we chose to sell the property. We were updated on a regular basis as to how the sale was progressing and were always treated with the utmost respect. At is quiet obvious why you are so respected within your firm. May success in your career continue. Once again, many thanks and should the need to purchase or sell again arise, we would certainly call upon your services once more and would not hesitate to recommend you to others.
