Thanks to Mark Bushell, selling our Freshwater unit was an easy and enjoyable experience. He was immediately available with valuable advice and hands-on involvement at every stage of the process. Mark’s tips for preparing our unrenovated property for inspection were spot-on and his appraisal proved to be faultless. Following every open-house inspection, we were updated with verbal and written reports, which occurred almost daily for the short two weeks the unit was on the market. All communication during the marketing campaign was in plain English and the essential post-sale paperwork was crystal clear for us, as first-time vendors. Mark Bushell’s local knowledge and his team’s abundance of past and fresh northern beaches property sales of all descriptions meant he could confidently draw on relevant examples of similar properties to ours, to help steer our decisions. His insights about recent and pending government policy changes, plus the likely impact of Sydney real estate headlines on the outlook of our ideal market were also crucial in our decisions on when and how to sell, and at what figure. With a final selling price $35,300 above that of the renovated unit directly above ours, sold only a few months prior by a different local agent, we are full of praise for Mark Bushell and his professional team. I’d definitely engage LJ Hooker Dee Why to sell a property in the future and until then, will recommend this agency highly to family and friends.

Our experience with Mark Bushell from LJ Hooker was very positive. Mark has a great deal of experience and professionalism and provided excellent advice. We were confident in Mark throughout the process. He and his team executed the sale campaign perfectly and we were pleased with the result. And they were always on hand to answer all of my questions!

I would like you to know what a fabulous experience I had when you recently sold my home. You achieved an outstanding price, which was above and beyond what other agents had quoted me. Your knowledge and advice regarding the timing of the sale was perfect, which made it that much easier for me at a very stressful time of my life. Throughout the marketing period and during the time offers were being submitted, You achieved over $30,000 more than one of the most renowned agents in the area had quoted me! I truly value your honesty and genuine concern for achieving the best possible outcome for me and my family. Your empathy and sincerity throughout the whole process is most appreciated and I will certainly be recommending you to anyone looking to sell or purchase a property, as they will have nothing short of the most outstanding agent looking after them.

Nigel and Helena Patterson

After interviewing several agents, I chose Mark because he offered me a clear plan of when and how to sell, and what improvements were required to maximise the sale price. He considered my own requirements and responded with a clear strategy. Mark was consistently enthusiastic throughout the campaign. What impressed me particularly was that Mark had the ability to listen well and provide very well considered advice. While my house might have appeared to sell itself, the premium I got was a result of her superb marketing, to a group of very different buyers. It was Mark who instigated the improvement plan which resulted in presenting the house for sale. He methodically worked with potential buyers and their offers and made me feel part of his sales team. His advice was key in the success of the sale. My conclusion: Mark loves his job, not just the commission at the end of the day. Not being a huge fan of the real estate business, I can certainly recommend Mark; a born sales person and a strategic thinker who loves the challenge of achieving the best price.

We have sold many properties over the years and therefore have dealt with many agents. Mark impressed us so much - we could see we were dealing with a modern, dynamic agent, not that 'same-old, same-old'. The results spoke for themselves, he achieved $58,000 more than we were hoping for - we were absolutely thrilled!

John Colby

I knew Mark prior to using LJ Hooker, however we had several agents offering their business. Mark was on the same page as us in terms of pricing and strategy and seemed to take more interest than others in terms of explaining things and really knowing what we wanted. He took time to get the details right Mark was available to answer any concerns we had , helped us get trades in for touch ups to the unit. Gave sound advice across the board which made life easy. Everything was handled quickly and efficiently. Mark was great to deal with and was highly professional at all times. We were really happy with his service and the outcome of our sale. I recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.
