What our customers say

Ilona is amazing, her communication, professionalism, drive, knowledge, persistence and honesty whilst in the process of selling our property is something phenomenal. No body works as hard as she does. Endless messages and phone calls, on weekends, late night and early mornings, just to ensure we are looked after and the buyers out there were always in the loop. Thank you so much Ilona, we couldn't of asked for a better agent to help us sell our family home.

The Restaino Family

Ilona is an extremely rare agent who is not aggressive and domineering. Her knowledge and memory is excellent. Ilona listened to all my requests, always kept in contact and was on time for all appointments. As an elderly person living on my own I was extremely lucky to have Ilona recommended to me, as I felt very safe and her advice was excellent. L J Hooker are extremely lucky to have her - she is worth her weight in gold.


Ilona proved herself time and time again to be a consummate professional who worked diligently on our behalf. Ilona demonstrated all of the skills and experience we were looking for in an agent. She was prepared from the very first meeting and was realistic and honest in her evaluation of what we could achieve. Throughout the process it was obvious that Ilona worked hard to achieve the best result possible. We thoroughly recommend Ilona as an agent for anyone considering selling.

Stephen & Kathryn

Both Ilona Barry and the principal of LJ Hooker Robina, David Manby, demonstrated a clear understanding and appreciation of the market conditions prevailing at the time we listed our home for sale. Their sense of timing to go to market was excellent. Ilona's attention to detail in the presentation, photography and content of the property description for internet marketing was exceptional. The property first appeared on a property marketing web site at about 8.00 pm on a Thursday and by Friday at 5.00 pm, there were two offers in writing in the form of contracts for us to consider. We were extremely pleased with the result and particularly, the smooth handling of every detail.

Graham & Lesley

As the Managing Director on one of Australia's leading sales development company's I have a VERY high standard when reviewing and referring sales professionals. Ilona is just that, I true sales professional. Having worked with with and coached 100's of real estate agents across Australia over the last 5 years I can speak with great confidence that she is one of the best on the market. She worked with both us and the vendors to broker a deal on the property that was "off the market" knowing that it ticked all of our boxes. The whole experience from when we met her at the open house ( of another property) to when the deal was done was professional, punctual and a pleasure to do business with her. Could not recommend her enough for either vendors selling or home hunters that want an agent truely on the look out for something special that fits their needs.

Greg & Sarah

Brit & Paul

We first noticed Ilona Barry when she began selling all the homes around us! On our first meeting with her we were happy to find she lived just around the corner and loved the area as much as we did. Ilona is a very warm, caring and down to earth person. At all times she was calm and professional and I consider her to be an excellent communicator. Ilona managed to get us the price we wanted and was able to navigate us through a very drawn out and complex sale with both patience and humour. We are very grateful to have found her and would happily recommend her to anyone needing a wonderful agent in the future.


I would recommend Ilona Barry to all my family, friends and the general public as an agent who gives 100% of her time and energy to provide a service which is excellent. Ilona backs this service up with her professionalism, knowledge and a unique way of gaining your trust and confidence .Even when you sometimes feel the sale is not happening fast enough Ilona has a knack of turning your negativity into having a positive attitude, which I feel she lives by herself.
