I felt it necessary to tell you about my overwhelmingly positive experience with Jessica Melling and her team. On Sunday, I drove by Azzurra Drive, as I was looking for a new home for me and my family. I immediately fell in love with the property and without delay, I messaged Jessica offering to rent the property and that we'd also like to move into it on Thursday. Not only did she contact me on a Sunday to advise me that it was still available, but Jess and her team worked promptly and efficiently to contact all of our referees and employers first thing Monday morning to get our application approved. So I'm sending a huge THANK YOU to all who were involved and I'm so excited for moving day tomorrow!

Monica Baartz, Tenant

Jess was very professional and knowledgeable. Given it is our first time we are renting out a property, we really appreciated that she took the time to explain the process in detail and we particularly liked the fact that she herself would bring potential tenants through and 'vet' them. We also liked that she introduced the property management team, using a photo within the LJ Hooker booklet to indicate who's who and to also offer for us to come into the office to meet Wendy and Caity personally before we move interstate. We have been very pleased with the overall experience, thank you Jess!

Nick & Kinni, Varsity Lakes

Jessica Cummings from LJ Hooker recently took over our investment property portfolio and we have been so impressed with how easy she has made the transition for us. Jess organised everything for us and was a lot easier than we thought it would be. To date Jess and the team at LJ Hooker have been extremely helpful and professional at all times. We would recommend using Jessica Cummings from LJ Hooker to look after your investment property as she makes everything seem simple and easy and nothing is ever a problem for her.

Ben, Broadbeach Waters

Jessica Cummings organised a meeting and had a contract ready to go. She spent time with me explaining each page, how everything worked, the process it would follow and backed everything up with phone calls and emails to keep me in the loop. She was very professional, polite, calm, funny and gave me the confidence that by choosing LJ Hooker Mudgeeraba, I had chosen well. I would be very happy to recommend Jessica Cummings to my family and friends, knowing they would be in very capable hands.

Jessica Cummings went above and beyond to help me find a tenant Even working after hours to help

Jo-Anne Fry

We recently moved all of our rental properties over to LJ Hooker and have been dealing with Jessica Cummings. Now at first we were very hesitant as we thought the process would not only affect us but also our tenants as well but Jessica has made it so easy and pain free that I regret not doing it sooner. She has made us feel like we are her only clients and not just adding us to the list. She has been great and would recommend her 110%

Shannon Cummane - Broadbeach Waters

The team at LJ Hooker vetted the tenants very well and choose someone who loved the property. So much in fact that they wanted to know if they could stay for another 12 months after the 8 week inspection. Jessica really knows what she is talking about and it shows from the minute you speak with her. She is passionate about what she does but she also wants to make sure the experience is amazing for both the owner and the tenant.

Mealta Pty Ltd

I could not fault any of the process, Jessica has been wonderful to work with. Jessica answered all my questions and made the process simple and easy. She was very easy to talk to, and helped in whatever way she could. I would recommend Jessica to anyone who would like to rent out their home.

Peter and Tracee Vogelmann, Pacific Pines

I have been very impressed with Jessica's professionalism, courtesy and honesty throughout the process of renting my father's property. She organised a wide number of trades people in order to prepare his house for rental and then very quickly found great tenants within a week of advertising. I would recommend Jessica without hesitation as a highly professional and efficient agent who looks after her clients and their properties very well.

Vicki Williams, Mooloolaba

My husband and I want to personally thank you for your efforts this far. As a property owner, it was important to us that we found tenants for our properties asap. Unfortunately, the 2 agents we employed before you couldn’t find us a tenant for both properties leaving out $1750 pw and $860pw vacant for 6 months. Your positive and honest approach is reliving and we will not hesitate when referring you in the future. Keep up the good work.

Julie - Landlord

Jessica behaved in a most professional manner when I asked her to handle my rental property. She arrived promptly, gave me straightforward advice and realistic expectations. I am extremely satisfied with the calibre of the tenants Jessica recommended and have no hesitation in endorsing her or her team.

Robyn Harcourt - Landlord

I had my unit listed with another agent for 2 months and they were not able to find me a tenant. Finally after 2 months I decided to change to LJ Hooker Robina| Mudgeeraba. Jessica, the very friendly and approachable young lady has organised professional photos and had the property advertised within 24 hours of meeting with her. Following this she held an inspection the next day. It wasn’t long after this Jessica called me advising that they had secured a good quality tenant. I am so pleased and thankful for Jess and the girls at LJ Hooker, it took them only a few days to have the property leased with a good tenant. I wish I made the move to LJ Hooker sooner then I wouldn't have been out of pocket 2 months rent. I recommend to everyone Jessica and all LJ Hooker Robina | Mudgeeraba team to look after your precious properties.

Kumi - Landlord

I just wanted to take the time to say a huge thank you for the amazing result you achieved for us on our rental property in Varsity Lakes. After we purchased the property we were ecstatic when you said that we could achieve $575 per week. Then imagine my dismay when the unit next door came online for $510 per week! You told me not to worry and I certainly did not have to at all as within the next 5 days not only was it rented to a great tenant but at $575 per week as you had promised. Your knowledge and professionalism is outstanding and we will be moving our other 2 rental properties to LJ Hooker Robina immediately. I would highly recommend you to anyone on the Gold Coast. They should contact you first when looking for a great team to manage their property.

Mark Kennerley - Landlord

I thought I would take this opportunity to give you a long overdue testimonial. During my time working with you at LJ Hooker I have felt that you have been an incredibly fair person to work for. You are very focused and dedicated in your role and it is easy to feel the passion and commitment you have for what you do each and every day. You are always upbeat and cheerful, you are straight to the point and it is refreshing to know I can speak to you about any matter. At LJ Hooker there is always an open and clear line of communication which ensures all matters get dealt with promptly and effectively. I genuinely believe that having dealt with yourself and others at LJ Hooker that the quality of service is second to none. Yourself and others seem to be genuinely committed to customer service at its best! I want to thank you for everything you have done for our cleaning business You have shown commitment and loyalty to us and I hope that has reflected back in the quality of our services to you. We hope to continue our working relationship well into the future and I would highly recommend you to any individual who wants to rent a property or to someone who wants to put their property into the hands of a property manager.

Lesley Ellingham - Argent Cleaning

I would like to extend my thanks and gratitude to Jessica Cummings in our Real Estate journey with LJ Hooker. We were in a position that forced us to move quite quickly and with little time to find a place for our family of five, three vehicles and pets it was stressful time for all of us. From the moment we told Jessica that we were having no luck in finding somewhere to live, she came through, found a house and got us approved in the blink of eye. I really appreciate all the extra time and work that Jess put in to help us find a place that suits our family needs and will continue to recommend her. Thank you again!

Tegan Bannerman - Tenant

We have been extremely impressed with the service provided by Jessica Cummings of LJ Hooker Robina|Mudgeeraba. Jess has gone above and beyond, providing much needed advice and guidance to us as first time landlords. Jess is high energy and exceptionally professional. We couldn't be happier with the results. Our property rented with wonderful tenants for a greater than expected return! I would highly recommend Jess and the LJ Hooker team to anyone considering renting their property in the Robina or Mudgeeraba area.
