Steve was extremely good to deal with. We had regular communication and he obviously worked hard to attract the right buyer for our property as it was only on the market for 3 days. We had a positive experience selling our house in a struggling market - Thanks Steve!

It was important that our agent was friendly, approachable & had our best interests in mind for a prompt sale. Steven James had all of the mentioned & we would highly recommend him to anyone selling their property. His local knowledge, experience in real estate & ability to sell our home in a tough market was commendable, he handled our sale professionally & sold our home in record time. We are very grateful to Steve & his team for achieving the Sale so we could move on with our next venture.

Kerry Heathwood Gladstone

I had a proposal from an alternate agent who sold a similar property 12 months prior. They were competent but during the review process Steven James displayed a higher understanding of the current market and was more proactive. In a difficult selling market there were few genuine buyers in our price bracket. Steven understood this and worked tirelessly (for both the buyer and seller) to ensure reasonable offers were obtained so that negotiations could be undertaken. Steve James knows Gladstone, knows the market, and provides an honest and proactive approach to the sales process. Would gladly engage him for future sales.

Doug Forbes

Having dealt with Steve James previously whilst looking to buy, his 'never let go' demeanor was what we needed for our sale. We would have accepted less than Steve James got as we were desperate to sell. His negotiation skill got enough more than we thought to almost cover Hooker's fees. Glenda James was also great. A pleasure to work with.

John Anton Eastwood Retirement Village Bairnsdale Victoria

Helen & Andrew Robertson

Steven James was our Real Estate Agent for the recent sale of our house... My wife & I had met Steven several times at Open Houses in the last 18 months whilst we were looking to purchase a new house. We were always impressed with his open & friendly manner & when it came time to list our existing property, we had no hesitation in entering into a contract to sell our property with him. In all our subsequent dealings with Steven we have found that he is always willing to give his time to explain things to us. He has excellent communication skills & his intimate knowledge of the banking procedures was also of great help to us. But what has impressed us most is his honesty. He has never tried to mislead us in anyway & was alway open in his communication with us. Steven has always conducted himself with the utmost integrity. He is a dependable & reliable agent.

Alan and Kathy Pickup

My husband and I have known Steve for approximately 6 years, we first met him as our bank manager and we were very impressed. We were very disappointed when we found out he had moved on after many years of service. We made a few enquires and discovered Steven was now a real estate agent with LJ Hooker Gladstone. We had been toying with the idea of selling our house for around a year and couldn't think of who we could trust enough to do it for us. Once we found out about Steven our decision was made and we were not disappointed. My husband and I had never sold a house before and had a lot of questions and hesitations. Steven was extremely patient with us and explained everything so we understood. Steven is very passionate about his job, he is honest, reliable and throws his whole self into what he does, so in no time we found our house sold. Thanks to Stevens meticulous planning the whole process was smooth and without any major event.

Angelo and De-Anne Paolatto

We recently sold our block of land through Steven James and the service that he provide us with was exceptional. He went out of his way to make things as easy for us as possible and managed to get us the best possible price for our sale. I cannot speak highly enough of Steven and the wonderful experience that we had dealing with him. I sincerely hope that LJ Hooker realise what a gifted person they have in him. We will have no hesitation in using his serrvices again when the need arises.

Debbie Power

We take this opportunity to express our gratitude to your office in regards to the sale of our home. In particular I wish to draw your attention to the outstanding service provided by Steven James. My wife and I are no strangers to buying and selling homes all over Australia. The sale of our current homes has been an enjoyable experience due to the efficiency and professionalism that Steven projects on a daily basis. Time never appeared to be an issue as he patiently explained the finer points of the contract, marketing strategies and our realistic expectations. Steven's honesty, attention to detail and knowledge were refreshing attributes which enabled him to operate in a manner that would instill confidence in not only the vendor but also the purchaser of the property. Steven even made our children feel comfortable and a part of the whole process. Steven is an asset and credit to your office.

Ian Edwards

Steve and Glenda are very professional and lovely people to deal with.
