We would like to commend Martin Howard-Smith for his professionalism as a real estate sales representative. We have recently sold a residential property using Martin as our sales representative. Throughout the entire transaction Martin organised advertising, open home inspections and the final closing of the sale with no concern for us. Martin's willingness to put in extra effort, his competence, advice and cheerful disposition absolved us of any worries. We would have no hesitation in using Martin in the future to market other property.

The agency, through Martin, gave honest and clear advice at all stages throughout the sale. I found Martin, as well as his colleagues, to act in a professional manner at all times and they kept me fully informed at all stages of the campaign.

Martin went out of his way and nothing was a problem for him - he was not pushy and knew exactly what was important to us to complete the transaction. Martin was a huge part of our dream home purchase and we will be forever grateful for the wonderful service we received. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Martin!!"

Megan and Eddie

"Our first encounter with Martin was when walking our dogs around Cosmos Park. Martin always had a friendly greeting and a comment on the weather. We were advised by a mutual friend that Martin worked in Real Estate. We approached Martin regarding the sale of our Unit and the purchase of a house in the Banksia Beach area. Having lived in the Bribie area, Martin was able to advise us on the Pro's and Con's of the different residential areas on the Island. Martin showed us a number of properties and we finally settled on a residence. We found Martin listened to our requirements in a property and did not show us properties outside our price range or requirement range. Martin always kept us in the loop, advising us of any developments with buyers and market trends. We were satisfied with Martin's performance with the sale, and would higly recommend Martin to anyone needing the services of a Real Estate Professional."

Barry & Julie Rowbotham

Martin Howard-Smith was the real estate agent from LJ Hooker that my wife and I had the pleasure of dealing with in the recent purchase of our dream house at 42 Tradewinds Drive Bribie Island. We found Martin to be very helpful in giving us all the information needed in deciding on purchasing this property. Martin never pressured us or gave us the usual “hard sell” but he did work hard behind the scene in brokering an equitable deal between us and the owner using a great deal of respect and a minimum of fuss. We were given time to consider and reflect, and to re-inspect the house until we were comfortable with our decision. After the offer was accepted, we found Martin to be excellent in following up on issues and keeping us informed of progress to settlement. This was especially important seeing that we are currently residing overseas. We commend Martin for a job well done and for his professional approach, not just in selling the house, but in also staying in until the very end. This made the whole buying experience one of pleasure rather than one of stress.

Roger & Sandy Bottrall

"OVERSEAS BUYERS HAPPY WITH AGENT" Happy buyers Roger and Sandy Bottrall were absolutely chuffed with their selling agent Martin Howard-Smith from LJ Hooker Bribie Island.

Mr & Mrs Bottrall said Martin had made the whole experience one of pleasure rather than one of stress while buying their dream house at Bribie Island.

Jo Hanson Bribie Island

To whom it may concern, we would like to take this opportunity to thank LJ Hooker Bribie Island and especially Martin Howard-Smith. He went above and beyond in trying to achieve the best possible outcome on the sale of our property. Right from before the start of the campaign to after auction day he continually kept us informed of all that was happening. We would have no problem in reccommending Martin Howard-Smith to family and friends on using him as their selling/purchasing agent in the future or using him ourselves again.
