We approached Craig as he sold our neighbours farm. We thought the campaign for that property was very good and he secured a quick sale for that property. Craig impressed us with his professionalism and knowledge of rural properties. We decided after the first meeting with him that we would use his services and he was excellent throughout the entire sales process. To summarise, Craig is a very nice guy, he is approachable, friendly and professional. At all times we were confident that he was representing us, as his clients, and his mission was to get the best price possible for our property. We are totally satisfied that we chose the right person to sell our property.

M & N Neilson - Wingham

I would like to express my appreciation for your help in finding and buying this property. Your understanding of my particular criteria, and your good advice as to what was possible, made my decision much easier. I would not have considered this place were it not for you, but it is indeed unique and the best I could have found to suit most of my needs. As with the sale of my previous property, your local knowledge, honesty and straightforward communication generated trust and allayed all of my concerns. Your support staff were equally professional and pleasant. I have been recommending you and your company to all and sundry.

Just a short note to thank you for all the work you have done for us in obtaining the purchase of our new home.

K Hibbert

We would like to provide a reference for Craig Hailes as a result of his successful sale of our rural property in Caparra. After we contacted LJ Hooker Wingham, Craig visited our farm and indicated that he thought he would have little difficulty selling the property. His property description and photographs for use in advertising was accurate and accentuated the positive features and lifestyle that we have enjoyed during our early years of retirement. We found Craig to be very personable and enthusiastic. He quickly familiarised himself with all aspects of the property. The first person he brought out to our property immediately put in a satisfactory offer which indicated his ability to match buyers to appropriate properties. Craig was always prompt in his communications with us and able to deal with or negotiate any concerns we might have raised in a timely and informed manner. We would have no hesitation in recommending Craig to potential sellers or buyers for his sound and professional salesmanship.

T & C Gould

I would like to convey my gratitude for your help in making my recent property purchase seamless and stress free. The purchase was a great outcome for both myself and the vendor and we are now friends and keep in regular contact. Craig showed exemplary professionalism, was always available to answer questions and provided plenty of quality information regarding the property. Furthermore, follow up from Craig was forthcoming ensuring that I was settled and had no further queries. Craig offered a very comprehensive, genuine customer service. LJ Hooker is highly regarded in the local community and I was privileged to have experienced your quality service. I would highly recommend buying and selling in the future.
