John has always been a delight and very knowledgeable and helpful when previously buying and now selling my property. I have recommended John time and time again to friends and family and won't be using anyone else when selling again in the future. John provided constant feedback with every aspect of my property and I was made to feel like one of the family. 11/10 John !!!!!

As soon as John walked into this property and had a look around chatted to us a bit smiled I knew he was confident of being able to sell. I believe John already knew the clients who would buy this property and how much they would pay. Guess what he did sell it within hours. Well done John and thankyou for being understanding and finding the right people to live in mums duplex. We are very happy with the result. Kind regards Jeff T

I know a lot of people think poorly of real estate agents and sales people generally, but I have to say that the professional approach and advice that John and Josh gave from the moment they first visited my property, the marketing campaign they suggested, and the personal manner in which they kept me in contact every step of the way during the period of selling was exceptional. I could not fault one aspect of their managing the sale and they were spot on in every way. As they say in the add : thank you Mr Hooker, and especially John and Josh Groth from Helensvale LJ Hooker.

B & I Wood

John & Josh Groth are absolute legends!! They exceeded our expectations by selling our home in 29 days at a record price in our area AND at a price we were absolutely stoked with. We decided to get John & Josh to sell our home because they had the most listings in the area when we looked on, they didn’t beat around the bush, they loved our house as soon as they walked in and they were genuinely excited to sell our house. We would highly recommend anyone looking at selling their home in the Oxenford, Helensvale and surrounding areas to give these guys a call if you want two guys who are extremely honest, down to earth and who’re damn good at what they do.

Robyn & I would like to thank you and your team for the hard work that was done, while looking after my property when it was being rented out. Also in the sale procedure that had all the up’s & down’s that you could imagine. But in the end it had a good out come. All the best in the future.

My name is Sheryl Diedrichs and this is my beautiful home at 94 Monterey Keys Drive.  As you can see the fantastic team at LJ Hooker Helensvale have gone beyond excellence to achieve the sale of my property. I originally short listed the real estate agencies in the area down to three to interview.  John and Josh Groth were the last to be seen and boy – did I leave the best to last!!  I had seriously considered the free advertising and cut price commissions dangled by the other agencies – however, the level of professional advice, service, marketing strategies, enthusiasm and experience offered by these two and their company were beyond belief.  Nothing was too hard and they left no stone unturned.  Yes properties are selling in record times but are they being sold for record prices.  Mine did … and I seriously doubt that without the guidance of these two, I wouldn’t be celebrating in quite the same way.  I always knew that these two were here to make sure I got the very best price – not just a sale that was ‘near enough.’ Thank you John, Josh and the team at LJ Hooker Helensvale and really … ‘Nobody does it better!’
