What our customers say

See all

Can I please pass on my many thanks again for the very clear and extremely helpful advice that Catherine has consistently provided over all the time I have been dealing with her in relation to the rental of my property in Hamilton Hill. This was particularly welcome as I am currently based overseas. When I was back home in WA, it was for family health reasons (which coincided with completion of building works ect) so it was very reassuring that I felt confident with Catherine handling so many matters (over and beyond!) during very difficult time. Catherine has always been so easy to deal with and very approachable, with responses always being prompt. Her knowledge and professionalism is appreciated and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending both Catherine and LJ Hooker. I have personally thanked Catherine also.

I have been working with LJ Hooker Leeming since the end of July/early August, initially with Catherine and now Cherie (and Stacey whilst Cherie was away). I had a very unique case where my previous property manager was entirely incompetent to put it politely. My initial dealings with Catherine were nothing short of fantastic, she helped me through the entire process from providing the legal risks/impacts of exiting my existing contract as well as dealing with the department of commerce. Catherine also did a great job with liaising with the existing tenant to help work out missed payments and future contract amendments with them. My next point of contact was Cherie where she did everything from manage the exit of the tenants, flawlessly worked with contractors and suppliers and found a new tenant (with the help of Stacey). My email doesn’t do Catherine and Cherie’s work justice, and I can honestly say the added value, support and motivation that they have shown me has been (and is) unbelievable. It certainly hasn’t been easy for them and I only hope that this email goes as a small sense of recognition of the work they’ve done to support me. I could never have arrived where we are with my property if I was working with most other property management companies. Both Catherine and Cherie were always available, had time to speak over the phone and worked through problems with a very proactive approach. I would highly recommend LJ Hooker Leeming to all who ask for my advice moving forward, if you would like further feedback over the phone I would be happy to do so as well.


Hi Catherine, Many thanks for your help and time. It has been a really pleasant process.


Hi Catherine Thank you so much again for your assistance during this uncertain period. You have been so helpful & proactive in getting this back on track :)


I must commend you and your staff for the excellent service you have provided to date. It must have been difficult for you to absorb so many (disgruntled) clients at the same time with the closure of the other agency, but your team¹s performance has been faultless. The contracts process with Catherine was very efficient and the ongoing management by Cherie has been outstanding. It has also been reassuring to have direct contact with you; your hands on approach is admirable and appreciated. Thank you to you and your team for the brilliant work you¹ve done so far.


Hi Catherine, Thank you very much for all your time & support in getting our investment property rented. Me & Kiri sincerely thank you & your team for your professional work.
