I purchased my property and had Raeleen from LJ Hooker Gosford list the property for lease; she kept me informed and up to date with every step. She provided me with sound advice along the way and was available to answer every question a first time investor could ask.

We found Raeleen to be very helpful with renting out our property. She was reliable and efficient, easily contactable and got back to us quickly about any questions we had. She was able to assist us with all of our needs, providing advice and solutions. I would definitely recommend her as a property manager.

Tom

When it came to crunch time on putting my home up for rent I was very unsure if I wanted anyone else living in my home. But my mind was put at ease once we started talking to Raeleen. Raeleen has gone out of her way to make things go smoothy for us. I havent had to worry about anything going wrong. We have trusted 100% every detail Raeleen has done for us and she has treated our home like her own with scanning over applications and organising things for us that we didnt get to do or finish with our home before we moved. We have been kept informed the whole time. I have no problem with recommending Raeleen to anyone, she has been a delight to deal/work with.

Danielle

This is first time we decided to rent out our property we were so lucky to meet Raeleen and her team in LJ Hooker Gosford. It was just amazing experience that we had with Raeleen. Just on the same day with appraisal she found the tenant for us. She is very professional, efficient and helpful for the best interest for both of landlord and tenant. With full of our gratitude we would definitely highly recommend someone who has investment property wants to do business with agent, Raeleen is the best person to work with. Also we want to express our gratitude to Scott Hunter in LJ Hooker Gosford who helped us to purchase this lovely property in Central Coast. Thanks again for all your help.

Jason True

I highly recommend Raeleen Starr to anyone that wants the peace of mind that their property is well managed. Raeleen’s professional and friendly approach to property management services is a pleasure to deal with.

Julie B., Landlord

I have been extremely happy with the service and support from Raeleen. She has alway conducted herself in a professional manner and has gone above and beyond to ensure excellent customer service.

Libby Morris, Landlord

Raeleen Starr sure is a star in my view with Managing Property. Approximately four years ago Raeleen took over management of four of my properties on the central coast. Prior to that I had very bad management costing me money and grief. Honestly I cannot speak more highly of anyone in Property Management. Raeleen always kept to her word doing what I asked or what she suggested. Rentals were in line with the going rate and repairs done providently and quickly. Raeleen always had the best interest of my properties and I could also tell she always had the tenants best interest also. Raeleen is easy to talk to and always friendly. A very competant lady and an asset to her employer LJ Hooker of Gosford. I use the pass tense as the properties have been recently sold however I will always be indebted to a very confident and experienced Property Manager, Raeleen Starr.

Pauline Stirling

Raeleen has been a pleasure to do business with; she is professional and listens to what my expectations are. Raeleen has the right tenant in my property so I no longer need to worry about people constantly moving in and out. I would recommend Raeleen to assist anyone in looking after their rental property.

Kim Cardiff, Point Frederick

Raeleen Starr from LJ Hooker has been managing all of our Central Coast properties since 2008. We love dealing with Raeleen and her team; she has managed our properties as if they were her own and ensured that the tenants were looked after throughout their leases. Her communication has always been clear and prompt and she has always actioned tasks promptly. On occasions where 3rd party tradespeople have been required, Raeleen has project managed the works and ensure that she is 100% satisfied before settling any account. She is constantly assessing market rental values and availability rates to ensure we are receiving the best return on our investments whilst minimising our vacancy rates. In short we love working with Raeleen and we wish we could clone her and have her working in other regions and states where we own investments that are not serviceable by Raeleen and her team.

Vanessa and Renato Parletta

We own an investment property at Point Frederick which has been managed by Raeleen Starr for a lengthy period of time. During that time we have had a change of tenants and this has been handled very professionally and with minimal turnaround time. Regular inspections have occurred and on the odd occasion repairs have had to be undertaken Raeleen has organised tradesmen to carry out those repairs quickly and competently. We have been completely happy with the service provided by Raeleen Starr and would certainly recommend her to others seeking a professional property manager.

Murray and Victoria Iles

I wanted to tell you of my experience dealing with Raeleen. I first met Raeleen a few years ago when I transferred my investment property to LJ Hooker Gosford. From the very outset I knew I had made the correct decision; Raeleen was everything I would expect and more. Her bright , bubbly, and happy personality is complimented by her professionalism and "can do" approach. Nothing is too much trouble for her, and I know as a Landlord, her concern for the tenant is just as great. One of Raelene’s greatest assets is her communication. This is paramount to me and Raeleen excels in this area allowing my investment property decisions to be made with all the facts and information. Raeleen is a great asset to LJ Hooker Gosford and I would highly recommend her to any prospective landlord as their property manager. One could really say ‘Starr by name and Star by nature‘!!!

Christopher O’ Malley

Raeleen has always been highly professional, courteous and always gives prompt feedback.

Ross MacDonald, Macmasters Beach

I have no hesitation in recommending that Raeleen manages your investment property.

Grant Walters, Gold Coast

Raeleen Star and Laura Rutherford are an absolute pleasure to deal with! They are both friendly and professional and always looks out for the landlord's and tenant's best interests. Raeleen and Laura are very efficient and always deal with any issues that may arise very promptly and always work out a solution that everyone is happy with. I always love it when they are my property managers as I know I am being looked after. If I ever buy an investment property I will definitely be using Raeleen and Laura to manage my property as I know they will ensure the best tenant will lease it and they will both do an amazing job. Thank you both for being such great property managers and making leasing from you such a smooth and easy process.

Angela (previous tenant)

I have owned a number of properties which have been rented, in Parramatta, Baulkham Hills, Round Corner, and Parramatta with a number of agents over about the past 40 years, and I am happy to say that the service from Raeleen has been the best I have ever had from an Agent or staff member. I have had horrible experiences with other agencies not managing rental arrears, and I am pleased that I have never had such issues through your agency and with Raeleen. She is bright, bubbly, quick to respond but gets to the point without delay and I would - and have - recommended the use of your Agency to other persons.

Ken Stewart

I have been dealing with Raelene both as a Tenant and a Landlord now for a number of years. I have always found her to be honest and upfront to ensure I am fully meeting my legal obligations as a landlord to ensure my tenants have a safe environment. My tenants speak highly of Raelene as a professional when conducting regular property inspections. I have no hesitation in recommending Raelene or the team of LJ Hooker to anyone looking for quality managers.

Paul Armstrong - Woy Woy

It is with great pleasure that we forward this testimonial to you as a special thank you for the unfailing expertise, friendliness and attention to detail that you have demonstrated in managing our properties over the years. Your ready smile and unflappable demeanour has instilled great confidence in us and has made you a pleasure to work with.

Lois Brooks pp Golden Wing Developments P/L and David and Tina Smith

I wish to personally thank you for the provision of services to fix the minor issues affecting my property in Point Frederick. Both sets of tradesmen were both courteous, efficient and completed the job required.I am more than happy to recommend the rental operations of LJ Hooker Gosford.

Guy Wayland

Nicholas, I want to stress that Raelene, while busy, is an amazing agent. She has been professional, prompt, supportive and approachable. We feel we are good tenants, the type that deserves a level of respect and Raelene always gives us that. I am VERY sad that you do not have an available rental that would suit us, as the last thing we want is to leave your office having been with you for many years now but unfortunately we have no choice. We have been offered a property but have not leased yet so if anything comes in we would much rather remain with your office. I cannot commend LJ Hooker Gosford any higher, this also including Madeleine and Georgia both of whom we have had dealings with. Thanks for your help and support over the years.

T& T Mercier

Thanks for the chat yesterday arvo in relation to Broadwater Street Point Clare. Your work and professionalism here is very much appreciated.

K. Calder

Dear Raeleen, Geoff & I would like to express our appreciation to you over the last 4 years for managing our rental property at 54 Albany Street, Point Frederick. We were extremely happy with the professional way in which you conducted running the property for us. Any problems that arose with regard to any maintenance problems were dealt with swiftly and in an extremely efficient way. All the reception staff at LJ Hooker were courteous, nothing was ever a problem. Also, we thank you for obtaining excellent tenants. The house has been looked after very well. If we ever decide to buy another rental property you will be the first person we call, Thanks again Raeleen for all your assistance

G & K Bennett

Good Morning Raeleen, I just wanted to say a special thank you for looking after our property at Point Frederick over the past 5 years, it has been an absolute pleasure in dealing with you, your professionalism that you apply to your job is very worthy of praise. L.J. Hookers are very luck you have you on their team, as we have owned a lot of property over the years and dealt with many high profile Agencies, and you have come up trumps with your attitude and client service and capabilities of getting things done. Thanking you once again and all the very best for the future.

J & B Crowe

I thank you for all of your assistance over the years I have been dealing with LJ Hooker Gosford. You have been a jewel and I could not have asked for better service. I wish you all the best in the future.

A. Heap

Raeleen Starr of LJ Hooker Gosford had been taking care of my investment property at 8 Blanche Street, North Gosford for years. During this time, she had been most efficient and helpful. A true professional, her communication skill is excellent. She had assisted me in matters relating to the property, i.e repairs, maintenance, storm damage, handling landlord insurance claims, rent increases, routine inspections and reports, etc. etc. Being in Sydney, I relied heavily on Raeleen in all tenancy matters. She had done it so well that I did not have to visit the Central Coast at all during these years until I decided to sell the property in December 2013. I take this opportunity to recommend Raeleen to anyone seeking a reliable property agent.

E. Chan

LJ Hooker has managed my Investment property for over 10 years. Throughout this time I have had no problems. This is especially the case since Raeleen started managing my property a few years back. Nothing was ever too much; she never rushed me off the phone and was always polite and professional. I appreciated the way she acted in the best interests of the Landlord, yet always considered the tenant when discussing what was best for the property. Without tenants or landlords, agents don't get paid. There was never a time a monthly income payment was late or incorrect. I would recommend Raeleen and her staff to manage any residential Investment property.

J. Yarad

Hi Nicholas, I just wanted to give you some positive feedback relating to Raeleen Starr and her help with my unit. Over the last 6 weeks Raeleen has been of great assistance with organizing repairs and help me to get the tenant out of a unit. Can you please pass on my appreciation? My experience so far with LJ Hooker has been a positive one and hope this could continue.

Ben

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! I'm asking because I appreciated the feedback you gave me when I brought my property in East Gosford. Also, you're the best property manager I've ever had. You're pro-active and make things happen. You include me in decisions about my property, making me feel actively involved. You make me feel like I'm part of a team. Raeleen your a gem.

Marina

Dear Sir/Madam, My family own several rental properties on the Central Coast which have been managed by Raeleen Starr, Whilst working at LJ Hooker Gosford. In addition, Raeleen has recently represented my family at the rental tribunal against a troublesome tenant. Raeleen has performed these roles extremely efficiently and in a friendly, open and honest manner. The tribunal case was a difficult process to manage, but Raeleen's performance was exemplarily and the outcome was completely successful in our favor. The quality of Raeleen's work is always to very highest professional standard, and I would highly recommend her.

M. Benton
