Thank you Ryan. From the day we invited you to come and help us sell our home you became “Cyclone Ryan” and before we knew it we were dodging drips of paint from the painter, tripping over the electrician and you even offered to do all the gurning. Next was trimming of the garden with you out there with your sleeves rolled up overseeing everyone. Photos done, house on the internet, open house, house sold, all within a week, our heads still spinning. All this done at your suggestion to ensure we achieved the price we were seeking. They do not refer to you as a sales specialist for not reason. Congratulations Ryan and a BIG thank you.

Seller - Mike and Jan – 38 Gardendale Crescent Burleigh Waters

My wife Trish and I would very much like to thank you so very much for selling our home. Your professional approach and exceedingly good manners to us were beyond reproach. Anything we asked you for you were always delighted to help us in any way. The moment you knocked on our door on that hot November day with your face covered in sun cream defying the heat to hand us a leaflet on a house you were having open for inspection the next day. You impressed us with your keenness to market our property , and you did, .....sold our home within two weeks at the highest price achieved in our area of Burleigh Cove. We have nothing but praise for you Ryan and we would certainly be happy in recommending your services to anyone wishing to sell their property. We wish you and your family a wonderful happy Christmas and every success for a happy prosperous future.

Seller - Trish & Darrell - 15 Schooner Court, Burleigh Waters

I would like to express my thanks to you and the LJ Hooker team for the recent sale of our house in Burleigh Waters. As per your request, please see attached a paragraph of recommendation. Ryan Deague sold us our property and was subsequently re-engaged to sell 12 months after purchase due to a change in our employment locations. Ryan’s knowledge of the suburb, comparative sales, and the market need was excellent. His network of tradesman to assist with minor touch ups and house beautification is also exceptional in market pricing to get you ready for sale. Thanks Ryan!! We also appreciated the information provided by the rental team in the case of being able to manage the purchase of a second property.

Seller - Blake - 6 Pitta Place, Burleigh Waters

Thank you so much for all your hard work in selling our investment house in Burleigh Waters. We spoke to a few agents and decided to place our trust in you and we were not disappointed. You really went above and beyond what we expected. As you know the house had quite a bit of work to be done to prepare it for sale and you took it on to arrange quotes, supervise the works and keep us informed every step of the way. The house looked great at the open for inspections thanks to all the trades you arranged to bring it up to scratch. While other houses seemed to languish a little on the market, ours was sold in a timely manner. So thank you from both Frank and myself for all your hard work. It was very much appreciated.

Seller - Frank & Anne - 17 Seville Circuit, Burleigh Waters - October 2018

There were some problems with settlement through no fault of Ryan. He remained professional and caring during this stressful time. I was most impressed with his attitude! From my first meeting with Ryan at the open home he made a big impression. He was helpful and listened careful to my needs and expectations as a buyer. Ryan was available 24/7 and always communicated clearly and in a very timely manner. He was an excellent agent to deal with and I would highly recommend Ryan to any of my family, friends or colleagues.

Buyer - Simone - 11 Tuckeroo Place, Reedy Creek - April 2018

Michael Weston elanora

Hi, Ryan, this is just a few words to thank you for all the hard work you did in selling our house. We couldn’t of asked for a more dedicated and hardworking agent, even helping us to paint the outside of the house. Not many agents would do that for you. We were both very happy with the price received for our property. So once again thanks for everything. Best Wishes from Jack & Jean

J & J. Hislop - Sellers - 68 Harrier Drive, Burleigh Waters - January 2018

Found the right buyer at the right time. Set realistic price expectations and closed the deal well. Not a boisterous used car salesman approach and would be happy to deal with Ryan again.

John Sharpin Sydney

I would like to take a moment to show the appreciation of our family for the excellent way your team handled our mothers house sale. Your agent Ryan Deague was mums first choice to handle the sale after he had been in touch with her for a couple of years, without putting any pressure on her to sell. We were amazed by Ryans dedication and professionalism and he secured the sale in a matter of hours. More importantly to us, his advice and local knowledge made emptying the house much easier. I have never known an agent to roll up his sleeves and help with moving furniture and packing boxes but this is what Ryan did on several occasions. His personal dedication to his work is boundless, he even visited mum in hospital. I would recommend Ryan to anyone buying or selling property especially if they want results without the stress. (or bulls***) Many thanks from Lynne Cruse on behalf of the Larchin family.

Sellers - 5 Seahawk Crescent, Burleigh Waters

Our names are Joan and Don, we listed our home for sale, Ryan Deague from LJ Hooker made contact with us and from then on we could not have had a better experience. Ryan went out of his way to help us to prepare our home for listing, he spent his own time cleaning our drive and removed an awning which my husband and I could never had done on our own, as we are getting on in years. Ryan has made our selling and buying transition a pleasure. Ryan spent so many hours arranging and accompanying us to view homes to buy also advising us with contracts. I do not know what we would have done without his advice. We have no doubt he would do the same for any future clients he represents. Sincerely, Joan & Don.

Anthony Laube - 2016

I decided to sell my home at Burleigh Waters a few months ago and had the good fortune to put the sale in the very capable hands of Ryan Deague. I can honestly say that he did a wonderful job for me, not only selling my home in a short time (and I was very happy with the result) but he also went that extra mile to make sure the best possible result eventuated…He even arrived one morning in his work clothes and boots and guernied my driveway, entrance and patio..I don’t know any other agent that would have done such a thing. I happily recommend his services and I am available to be contacted (lro26382@bigpond.net.au) Lynn Rogers

Lynn Rogers - Seller 12 Spoonbill Court, Burleigh Waters - 2016

Ryan carefully considers any challenge he is about to accept before moving forward. He has a good sense of humour and is very considerate of other people’s needs. Ryan’s manner is calm and reassuring. He is reliable, intelligent and totally honest in everything he undertakes. He is also extremely popular with his friends and peers. I have every confidence in recommending Ryan to any employer who might consider him for a position of responsibility and requiring reliability.
