Y Amith

I remember when I first approached you to take over the management of my rental property one of the things I said to you was how much importance I placed of effective communication. I am so glad now that I engaged you as my property manager, it is one of the best business decisions I have ever made. Your communication to me has been way beyond my expectations. You have excelled in keeping me fully informed on all aspects of my property and your availability has never been in doubt. If at any stage I have called the office and missed you I can be absolutely confident you will return my call prior to the close of business and even sometimes after business hours. You have a unique gift of making the owner ( and I’m sure ) the tenant feel they are the most important person in your day. Another thing I would like to tell you is you have a beautiful and happy personality which in business these days can sometimes be a rare commodity. I have been in a sales role in another career and I know the importance of showing a positive and happy nature to customers and clients. Raeleen, this comes naturally to you and you are made for Real Estate. Your ‘Can Do’ attitude would be infectious to those you deal with and manage and they are fortunate to have a mentor like you in the early part of their career. I don’t think I can remember you ever showing any form of negativity and you seem to have a perpetual smile on your face. My wife and I are extremely confident having you manage our property we have also mentioned to family and friends your unique talents and qualities…………….sort of showing off I suppose that we have you.

Recently, I had the pleasure of liasing with Raeleen and her “team” whilst securing a Tenancy Agreement for my property. Throughout the process, I found Raeleen to be extremely professional, positive and enthusiastic at all times. When preparing the property, she gave great advice on what the important factors were for tenants, she outlined clearly what was included in the process for renting the property, the steps that she would take and how it would be managed when the property was tenanted. At all times Raeleen and her “team” updated me on the progress of the listing. Their customer service was absolutely terrific! I would have no hesitation in recommending Raeleen and her team for anyone wishing to have a successful result with a property listing.

W Miller

THANKS!! We tried renting out our property ourselves and unfortunately did not have the reach to successfully achieve this. We went for a couple of months without rent until we handed the property to Raeleen from LJ Hooker. The property was leased after the first open inspection!!!! Fast and efficient! Thanks, Raeleen.

J Paine

Raeleen is a thoughtful, passionate, professional and very experienced property manager that you can rely on and trust with. My property was not in the right state to be rented out and she helped me with her warm guidance, support and advice on all the necessary maintenance and improvement required. She treated my property as her own and I felt confident and relaxed after she took over my property management. She managed to bring the property back to the market and secured qualified tenants within days after it was advertised. I am deeply impressed by Raeleen’s expertise and service and strongly recommend her to be your property manager.

Alan Gao

For the past 8 months LJ Hooker Gosford have managed our home unit rental property in Gosford. Two people who we were most in contact with there were Ms Raeleen Starr and Ms Maddie Bone. We found both of the above staff and the agency to be responsible, accurate, competent, cooperative and totally professional. Monthly statements were provided on time every month, with on time transfers of income to our nominated account. We would have no hesitate in recommending their services to any property owner.

J and L Devine

After a bit of a hassle with my property, I started looking for a better property management agency for it and was introduced to Raeleen Starr from LJ Hooker, Gosford. Raeleen made the take-over process to be smooth and trouble-free, dealing with every aspect of it in very professional and friendly manner, paying attention to every detail. On top of that, she finalised a few long-standing maintenance issues, which I was trying to address for a long time with no much luck. I'm happy for my property to be in a good hands and I would highly recommend Raeleen and the LJ Hooker team to anybody looking for a great property management and real-estate services.

Dmitry

“My husband and I moved from Newcastle to Gosford 3 years ago and have been renting with LJ Hooker Gosford ever since. Raeleen is our Property Manager and has been a pleasure to deal with in all instances. Raeleen has been flexible with altering scheduled inspection dates as my husband is a shift worker and she always returned my calls and emails in such a fast manner. We have thoroughly enjoyed having L J Hooker as our Real Estate Agent and if we decide to rent again will definitely utilise them as our first point of call.

S. Gilbert

Raeleen has been very professional, responsive and friendly. She’s clearly knowledgeable and experienced and has provided accurate & timely information. Being a new landlord, I’ve particularly appreciated her pragmatic and sensible advice and the fact that she’s provided me with options in a neutral manner, without trying to sell any particular product or service.

Hugh

Thank you and Natasa for looking after our property. We have been extremely happy with the service. Natasa was extremely thorough at the house before the tenants moved in but also really responsive to the tenants when they had issues, which is so refreshing to my previous experiences. I have recommended you guys to other people who have asked me as you were both professional and a pleasure to work with.

Ms. Raeleen Starr has been looking after our property at Point Frederick in Gosford as a member of the L.J. Hooker team during the years 2000-2020 in a variety of functions, lately as Department Manager. During the entire period she has been involved in managing the relations with our tenants, including lease extensions, property inspections, routine maintenance and repairs. She has always been a reliable and professional partner in all of these activities. I have been especially impressed by her support and commitment in times of difficulty, for example when a carport was destroyed by a falling tree and needed to be completely rebuilt with insurance funds. She was also of tremendous help when a border dispute with a neighbour needed to be settled. As we were residing overseas during most of the time, Raeleen was required to work independently and by using her own judgement more than usual, which she did to our full satisfaction. I have no hesitation to recommend her as a property manager.

Wieland Kunzel

Thank you very much for all your help in getting our house rented. LJ Hooker was recommended to me by my son in-law and when I first met with Raeleen I was impressed by her research and knowledge of the area, and her bright and bubbly personality won me over. Even when there was a problem Raeleen solved it personally and quickly for us without hesitation. Once again, thank you.

Naomi

Raeleen Starr Property Manager is a great asset to LJ Hooker Gosford. Raeleen is the epitome of professionalism yet still maintains a personal and caring approach. Over the four years that we rented the property we found Raeleen extremely efficient in dealing with any maintenance issues that occurred. Raeleen assisted in making our move a seamless transition and we can thoroughly recommend her services to anyone who rents from LJ Hooker.

CJ & JE Thomson – Tenant

My wife and I decided to lease our apartment in Gosford and we chose L J Hooker Gosford to manage the rental; LJ Hooker Gosford and its Principal have an excellent reputation. Raeleen Starr, Department Manager, has acted as L J Hooker’s representative during this process for the past few months. We have been impressed with her efficient and courteous manner, attending to our requirements promptly and to our complete satisfaction.

John and Lynette Devine

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.

Justin

I highly recommend Raeleen from LJ Hooker Gosford. She has been a gem from the get go! She was so quick and efficient with getting my property leased out! Thanks Raeleen I know my property is in good hands! Thank you.

Gretel M.

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.
