I couldn’t fault Michael Hughes! He kept in touch with me, and kept me updated constantly! The property sold in four days! He was amazing

Karen Collins, Kotara

It was great to deal with Michael and his team. We were selling a relative's home and Michael was sensitive to the needs of the relative. His knowledge of what the property was worth and how to market it was very helpful as it sold in a short time. Would recommend Michael and his team anytime


Thank you for all of your help when selling my Charlestown property. It was a really busy time but everything went smoothly. I have also really appreciated all of the help and support you have provided over the last 10 years or so in managing the property. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your services to others.

Belinda Mulligan, Vendor Charlestown

Michael Hughes and his team worked tirelessly to market and sell our house. They proved to be most efficient and effective. We sold our house at auction and were overjoyed with the result . I would recommend L.J. Hooker Hamilton to anyone who needs to buy or sell.

Stephanie Berick, Adamstown

Michael Hughes was really great to deal with especially when our first purchaser passed away 4 days prior to settlement, Michael was very professional with his advice. He is friendly and has a very flexible personality to suit the situation at the time. Would defiantly be in contact with Michael ( old mate ) in the future. Thanks Kerry

There property manger is wonderful we dealt with Bob English when he worked for another agency..that agency was taken over by another real estate ...Bob left them and and it took us a while to find out which agency he than went to work for... We found LJ Hooker Hamilton with the team of Michael and Ros to be wonderful to deal with....i do feel that they worked really hard in selling our property...especially when they had to deal with a very difficult buyer of our property...these buyers where so difficult that i even rescinded the contract...luckily Michael had another buyer in the wings and the sale went through within 10 days.. Both my husband and myself are very grateful for the team at Hamilton...Michael, Ros and Bob Regards Margaret Reynolds

Jason Gardiner

Grateful thanks to Michael Hughes and Debbie Wiseman for the excellent job they did with the recent selling of my house. Their expert advice to a novice house-seller was most welcome, ensuring a smooth transition from advertising and open-house inspections to a more-than-satisfying end result at auction. I was kept informed of updates throughout the proceedings in a courteous manner, and both Michael and Debbie were more than approachable for answers to my many questions and to dispel any anxieties. An effective touch from them was to make the history of the house an integral part of the selling process. Knowledgeable. Trustworthy. Respectful. Professional. Thank you, Mr Hooker!

Lindsay Carr, New Lambton

Being from out of town, we didn't have a recommendation for an agent when it came time to sell our investment property, so I chose LJ Hooker Hamilton purely on location. This turned out to be a lucky decision as Michael Hughes was available immediately to fit in with my limited time in Newcastle. He (and Debbie Wiseman, in Michael's absence) were fantastic. The marketing was fast and produced a great result very quickly. They were extremely professional in everything and kept us informed of the progress of the sale. I can't recommend them highly enough.
