What our customers say

Paulette has many years of experience selling property in Guildford, NSW and her knowledge of the local market and potential buyers reflects this wealth of experience. During the lead-up to auction she kept me fully informed of open house feedback, potential buyers taken through outside open house times etc. She was easily contactable via phone or email to answer any questions I had. The price achieved for the property is indicative of Paulette's efforts to market and sell the house.

Peter Tannous offered professional, conscientious and friendly service and went out of his way to help with issues and requests associated with the sale of my property. I highly recommend his service!

6 Margareta Cl Guildford

I was very pleased with having Paulette sell my fathers estate . Very emotional time for me and Paulette was very supportive and understanding. I have another property, if I was selling, I wouldn’t hesitate in contacting Paulette.

37 Holdsworth St Merrylands

Peter and the crew at Hookers Merrylands are great people to deal with. They sold a property of mine quickly and without any hassles. I do recommend them to anyone. I'm in another state and really did need someone that would solve the problems of being remote and not having to be there.

9/23 Oxford St Merrylands

Paulette and Peter at LJ Hooker are excellent at the job of selling property. When I needed to sell the market was at a low point and they guided me to make the right choice for the market conditions. They stood steadfast and I ended up getting what the property was finally listed for. They also sold our parents estate for us and at the time got over our asking price so that was a bonus. They look after you throughout the process and negotiate on costs so both parties were happy.

15/77-79 Mountford Avenue Guildford

I have found Paulette totally professional and courteous in her approach to the selling of our house. She stayed in contact with us and fought hard for us to get the right price on the upper side of the range. I would thoroughly recommend Paulette to any vendor.On behalf of myself and my family we thank you for all your effort you put in right from the start, the selling of the house and then closing the deal. Many, many thanks.

Mr Radzieta
30 Wisdom St Guildford West

Throughout the whole process I was extremely impressed by Paulette's level of care and professionalism. She made every effort to stay in contact with us and provided extremely on point information. I would use Paulette whether purchasing or selling a home as her customer service and knowledge is invaluable in a market where many agents are more concerned with the sale than the service.

Paulette is the best agent one could hope for. She knows the area like the back of her hand, having lived in the area all her life. She is honest and upfront with you. She worked hard to get my property on the market and eventually find a seller who will love our property as much as we do, at a price we were extreme happy with. If you are in need of an agent I cannot recommend anyone better than Paulette Ghaleb.

When deciding to sell my properties, I wanted an agent who was approachable, dependable and willing to take the time to communicate with me about my needs.

D Hatherly
1 Garnet St Merrylands

We had a fantastic selling experience with Paulette Ghaleb. Paulette kept us informed every week as to status of sale, number of people interested. We managed to sell our property within first 3 weeks, which is a great outcome for us given sales closure times currently appear to be longer based on market trends for older style units in this area. We absolutely recommend Paulette if you are looking to sell or buy a property.

We are delighted to recommend L.J Hooker Merrylands to all those who are buying/selling/renting in the Holyroyd area.

George, Concord

I engaged LJ Hooker Merrylands and specifically Paulette Ghaleb to market my unit. Simply put, in my opinion Paulette and her team did an exceptional job selling the unit. In believe the marking package was appropriate for this property, and it was clearly explained to me at the outset. The service I received was pretty much what any owner would hope for. I’ve no hesitation therefore in recommending Paulette and team in the future.

Paulette helped me through the sale of my home and helped me achieve the price I was looking for in a slowing market, negotiating with interested buyers until I was satisfied.

I purchased a property that your agency were managing the sale on over the weekend and I wanted to say what a great experience it was in dealing with LJ Hooker Merrylands. I have dealt with many agents over the past 10 years and rarely am I blown away by the helpfulness of the teams I am dealing with. I found both Peter and Paulette to be incredibly professional to deal with.

Dear Paulette, I wanted to sincerely thank you and John Contos, on behalf of my aunt, for your work and the attention you showed in selling her flat. Your efforts went well beyond the call of duty and I can tell you that your assistance in helping us in those last few days prior to settlement were greatly appreciated. I found your service culture very professional and I would have no hesitation, should the opportunity arise, use your services again and to recommend you to others.

Though handling lots of different projects, John Contos deals with each one separately and don't hesitate to give reviews on sale progress whether positive or negative. Keep the client updated on market changes, and have a ready second plan in case the first fells apart.

Ms M Dagher

Paulette was able to assist me in the sale of my property in Woodpark, her knowledge of the area and her professionalism was exceptional. My property sold for more than I expected and I put that down to Paulette's professionalism and sales drive with the local newspaper and internet.
