LJ Hooker Digs Deep

From March 23 to April 7, 2017, Cyclone Debbie devastated Queensland and parts of Northern NSW, including a number of LJ Hooker offices.

At a preliminary estimate, the severe tropical cyclone caused a damage bill in excess of $420.2 million, with LJ Hooker Bowen, LJ Hooker Whitsunday and LJ Hooker Lismore being caught in the wreckage.

When a storm like this hits it inevitably leaves behind devastation and for our offices that included thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to the premises and damage to properties under management and for sale; meaning loss of income.

This loss will be felt for the weeks, months and years to come.

So the LJ Hooker Family dug deep, and between the network, we raised over $10,000 to help these offices get back up on their feet.

Overwhelmed with the support from the network the teams at LJ Hooker Bowen, LJ Hooker Whitsunday and LJ Hooker have a message they wanted to share:

“Raylene, I and all the team at LJ Hooker Bowen would like to thank everyone involved in this very generous gesture. I can honestly say we have not had time to even look at what this has cost us, but it’s wonderful to know the LJ Hooker family was thinking of us!

 “We are so humbled by all the assistance from our LJ Hooker family.

Our community spirit has risen to a high like we have never seen and that’s a wonderful thing in tough times. Knowing you are with us all the (muddy-watery) way has helped more than you will ever know.

Who would have thought from this sad, devastating experience so much positivity would evolve!

 Heartfelt thanks

 Ps. I said to Robert I haven’t beaten cancer to get washed away in our first year of Business. Well, we didn’t get washed away – a few things did – but we are here, and we will be back bigger and better. Thank you!”
