As you are aware, I was enormously impressed with all aspects of the Sales process relating to the very successful sale of the above property by my Sales agent, Stephen Bunday and by all those members of his support crew at LJHooker Dickson that I came into contact with... From start to finish, the process was accomplished seamlessly, with great courtesy, prompt responses to any queries I had, a pleasant, friendly and co-operative approach by all the members of "Team Bunday" and, above all, great expertise and high ethical standards on show at all stages of the Sales process from Stephen Bunday himself, coupled with a very friendly and relaxed manner, which meant that I found it a pleasure to be involved in the process, as well as being delighted by the result of the auction. Stephen proved himself to me to be an expert in all aspects of real estate sales and I felt so confident in his expertise, (a confidence that proved very well- founded) that I felt able to rely totally on his advice and went along with whatever he thought best, with a great outcome. Not only was his advice spot on at all stages, but it was delivered with great friendliness and a prompt response. In addition, the way in which he conducted the auction itself was very impressive, with his quiet, calm and friendly approach as always on display, but coupled with an impressive ability to say just what was needed to produce a great reaction from the large gathering of interested people that attended the auction. As a direct result of his efforts, an amazingly high price was achieved at the auction and I could not have been happier with the result. I truly could not have hoped for a better outcome ! In a word, I would describe his work ethic as excellent, which produced an excellent result, and I will most definitely ask Stephen to act as my Selling Agent again if in future I should I ever need to sell another property. Thanks very much to all those involved for a job well done and a splendid result.

Dear Stephen, Nic and Jo We are writing to record our appreciation for the support of LJ Hooker Dickson Sales and, most importantly, the substantial contribution made by each of you to the success of the auction of our property at 288 Duffy Street Ainslie on 2nd May 2015. We could not be more delighted with the outcome and we very much appreciate your professionalism, timely counsel and the support provided throughout the process. As you are well aware selling a property is often a highly stressful event from which we were not immune. However, our anxiety was significantly reduced knowing that we had you to reassure and guide us through the process. Warmest regards,

Helen Fowler and George Clark

Thank You Nic, Stephen and LJ Dickson Team - we experienced a fast and smooth sale of our NSW Land. We highly recommend Nic, Stephen and the LJ Hooker Dickson team. We had the opportunity to meet both Nic and Stephen when looking to purchase a property in the Inner North, Canberra. Both Nic and Stephen are passionate and enthusiastic agents, with their vendor’s interest in mind. However, both were able to maintain a healthy balance and liaise with us, as potential purchasers. When we made our decision to sell a 4 acre land parcel in Murrumbateman, we had no hesitation in nominating this dynamic duo. We anticipated a long and bumpy road, given the location, lack of services etc. However, Nic and Stephen took charge, and we have never looked back. We followed their every recommendation re listing, viewing, auction, etc and today we “settled”! A fabulous result for us, and within weeks of listing with LJ Hooker Dickson. I believe rural NSW was a new region for the boys, and they approached our sale with gusto! At their suggestion, many “open house” days were conducted on our land. We thought a photo would be sufficient, but this was not good enough for Nic and Stephen. They insisted on both personally visiting the block, and meeting potential buyers. Both Nic and Stephen were responsive in all communications, and readily available if we had any queries. Their feedback by phone was always welcome and, when relevant, their written reports extremely comprehensive. We continued to auction, but our land did not sell, although it came very close. However, with Nic’s guidance and his continued attention to our property, we settled 3 days post auction. With sincerity, we would highly recommend both the Team, and Nic Salter-Harding. We are now in the final stages of a purchase through LJ Hooker Dickson and continue to trust our communications with Nic, Stephen and the Team.

Facebook Review (5/5 stars) - Stephen Bunday sold my house in Dickson during a very trying and emotional time. He got the price I had hoped for and was not only aware of my emotional well being, he worked his best to keep the sale of the house at a minimum of disruption to my life.

Susan MacGillivray

Dear Stephen and Jo, Thank you so much for the effort you have both put into selling my home. I am very happy with the results and how the auction went last night. Thank you very much Stephen for your negotiating with the buyer - really happy with your sweet talking!

Mikki Smyth

Hi Stephen, I just wanted to say a huge thanks for all your help with our house hunt! We are now happily moved into a place in O'Connor. Your reference was fantastic and putting us in contact with the other LJ Hooker agencies was an invaluable helping hand so thank you very much.

Ed Morrow

Dear Stephen, It was an absolute pleasure to work with such a consummate professional on the sale of our home. we simply couldn't have asked for more from our agent - your talent, work ethic and dedication made our sale a success. When people ask us why we chose you for our agent, we have one simple answer for them - because he is the best ! Warm regards,

Bronwyn and Alistair

Alan and I wanted to thank you and the rest of the team for your lovely card and hamper. We were really delighted to receive both. I hope you know we felt very happy with the wonderful job you all did for us and we felt really reassured of your professional standards each time we had contact with you. Everyone put their best into the sales from the receptionist to Nic and Stephen, to you and the marketing team, to the auctioneer. What a happy chance we had when a remark from someone we know led us to a great find – and we think you were! The best recommendation is always by word of mouth and we both have recommended the team to a number of people.
