I felt it necessary to tell you about my overwhelmingly positive experience with Jessica Melling and her team. On Sunday, I drove by Azzurra Drive, as I was looking for a new home for me and my family. I immediately fell in love with the property and without delay, I messaged Jessica offering to rent the property and that we'd also like to move into it on Thursday. Not only did she contact me on a Sunday to advise me that it was still available, but Jess and her team worked promptly and efficiently to contact all of our referees and employers first thing Monday morning to get our application approved. So I'm sending a huge THANK YOU to all who were involved and I'm so excited for moving day tomorrow!

Monica, tenant

The professional approach upon which Jessica was marketing my property is highly recommendable. She is knowledgeable, approachable and personable, she explained every form and every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. I highly recommend Jessica Cummings.

Salwa – Landlord

With all the stress and concerns about setting up our first investment property, Jessica Cummings provided a true customer service that not only removed the worry from the process, but delivered with results in a time frame we didn’t think was possible. Nothing was a problem for Jess, and she delivered positive results at every stage, from property handover, inspections, advertising and finding our tenants. Thank you Jess and LJ Hooker Robina. We highly recommend you to anyone.

Shane Lynch – Landlord

We recently moved all of our rental properties over to LJ Hooker and have been dealing with Jessica Cummings. Now at first we were very hesitant as we thought the process would not only affect us but also our tenants as well but Jessica has made it so easy and pain free that I regret not doing it sooner. She has made us feel like we are her only clients and not just adding us to the list. She has been great and would recommend her 100%.

Shannon Cummane, Broadbeach Waters – Landlord

I could not fault any of the process, Jessica has been wonderful to work with. Jessica answered all my questions and made the process simple and easy. She was very easy to talk to, and helped in whatever way she could. I would recommend Jessica to anyone who would like to rent out their home.

Peter & Tracee Vogelmann, Pacific Pines – Landlord

I have been very impressed with Jessica’s professionalism, courtesy and honestly throughout the process of renting my father’s property. She organised a wide number of trades people in order to prepare his house for rental and then very quickly found great tenants within a week of advertising. I would recommend Jessica without hesitation as a highly professional and efficient agent who looks after her clients and their properties very well.

Vicki Williams, Mooloolaba – Landlord

I had my unit listed with another agent for 2 months and they were not able to find me a tenant. Finally after 2 months I decided to change to LJ Hooker Robina | Mudgeeraba. Jessica, the very friendly and approachable young lady has organised professional photos and had the property advertised within 24 hours of meeting with her. Following this she held an inspection the next day. It wasn’t long after this Jessica called me advising that they had secured a good quality tenant. I am so pleased and thank you for Jess and the girls at LJ Hooker, it took them only a few days to have the property leased with a good tenant. I wish I made the move to LJ Hooker sooner then I wouldn’t have been out of pocket 2 months’ rent. I recommend to everyone Jessica and all LJ Hooker Robina team to look after your precious properties.

Kumi – Landlord

Thank you Jess for your assistance. We are grateful for your patience and understanding of our situation.

L Stillwater – Landlord

I am totally satisfied with the service provided by Jessica and the team from LJ Hooker Burleigh. At all times I was kept updated and advised by Jessica who displayed a competent and professional approach. I felt like I was in good hands.

Leoni – Landlord

Thank you Jess for your assistance. We are grateful for your patience and understanding of our situation.

L Stillwater – Landlord

The team here are fantastic, helpful, thorough and are quick to respond to queries. They also achieved an excellent rental price for my property based on their appraisal which was a great result.

Peter Bent – Landlord

Jessica behaved in a most professional manner when I asked her to handle my rental property. She arrived promptly, gave me straightforward advice and realistic expectations. I am extremely satisfied with the calibre of the tenants Jessica recommended and have no hesitation in endorsing her or her team.

Robyn Harcourt – Landlord

Jess has been great helping me lease out our property – so friendly, knowledgeable and helping with anything required. Would definitely recommend!

Dani – Landlord

The team at LJ Hooker vetted the tenants very well and chose someone who loved the property. So much in fact that they wanted to know if they could stay for another 12 months after the 8 week inspection. Jessica really knows what she is talking about and it shows from the minute you speak with her. She is passionate about what she does but she also wants to make sure the experience is amazing for both the owner and the tenant.

Denise & Mark – Landlords

All staff at LJ Hooker have been most helpful, reporting back to me each step of the way, giving updates and information needed for the letting process. Completely stress free for me.

Denise Cooper – Landlord

Jessica Cummings organised a meeting and had a contract ready to go. She spent time with me explaining each page, how everything worked, the process it would follow and back everything up with phone calls and emails to keep me in the loop. She was very professional, polite, calm, funny and have me the confidence that by choosing LJ Hooker Mudgeeraba I had chosen well. I would be very happy to recommend Jessica Cummings to my family and friends, knowing they would be in very capable hands.

Donna Morgan – Landlord

We have been communicating with Jess and have found her to be the most comfortable and personable agent to be around. She has made it so easy and exciting finding our new home.

Grace & Jacob – Tenant

Jessica Cummings went above and beyond to help me find a tenant, even working after house to help.

Jo-Anne Fry – Landlord

Jess was very professional and knowledgeable. Given it is our first time we are renting out a property, we really appreciate that she took the time to explain the process in detail and we particularly liked the fact that she herself would bring potential tenants through and ‘vet’ them. We also liked that she introduced the property management team, using a photo within the LJ Hooker booklet to indicate who’s who and to also offer for us to come into the office to meet Wendy and Caity personally before we move interstate. We have been very pleased with the overall experience, thank you Jess!

Kinnison & Nick, Varsity Lakes – Landlords

Jessica did a great job in securing tenants for our Clear Island Waters property. We have found her to be very professional and a great communicator and have no hesitation in recommending Jessica and the team at LJ Hooker for your rental needs.

Julia Caldwell – Landlord

Thank you to The Rental Department for assisting me in turning my home into a rental. Jess and the team were very efficient and have made the process a lot easier than expected.

Leigh Bry – Landlord

If you own an investment property you MUST speak to Jessica in rentals. She leased out our home for a price that exceeded our expectations and to top it off found us great quality tenants. Thanks Jess.

James Bourbon - Landlord

Jessica rented and managed a property we recently purchased in Reedy Creek. We added a degree of difficulty for her as we currently live in the USA so communication was not particularly easy. However it seemed she was always one step ahead!

Tony Moore - Landlord

I had great service from Jess, she made the rental process quick and easy. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to rent their property out.

Jay Sabatini – Landlord

We purchased our first property and used LJ Hooker to assist us with renting it out. Jess from LJ Hooker was wonderful – she had great knowledge of the area, market and things we needed to know as first time landlords. Jess advertised our place quickly and secured tenants quickly as well. We would definitely recommend her.

Ashlee – Landlord

My husband and I want to personally thank you for your efforts this far. As a property owner, it was important to us that we found tenants for our properties asap. Unfortunately, the 2 agents we employed before you couldn’t find us a tenant for both properties leaving out $1750 pw and $860pw vacant for 6 months. Your positive and honest approach is reliving and we will not hesitate when referring you in the future. Keep up the good work.

Julie - Landlord

Kumi - Landlord

I just wanted to take the time to say a huge thank you for the amazing result you achieved for us on our rental property in Varsity Lakes. After we purchased the property we were ecstatic when you said that we could achieve $575 per week. Then imagine my dismay when the unit next door came online for $510 per week! You told me not to worry and I certainly did not have to at all as within the next 5 days not only was it rented to a great tenant but at $575 per week as you had promised. Your knowledge and professionalism is outstanding and we will be moving our other 2 rental properties to LJ Hooker Robina immediately. I would highly recommend you to anyone on the Gold Coast. They should contact you first when looking for a great team to manage their property.

Mark Kennerley - Landlord

I thought I would take this opportunity to give you a long overdue testimonial. During my time working with you at LJ Hooker I have felt that you have been an incredibly fair person to work for. You are very focused and dedicated in your role and it is easy to feel the passion and commitment you have for what you do each and every day. You are always upbeat and cheerful, you are straight to the point and it is refreshing to know I can speak to you about any matter. At LJ Hooker there is always an open and clear line of communication which ensures all matters get dealt with promptly and effectively. I genuinely believe that having dealt with yourself and others at LJ Hooker that the quality of service is second to none. Yourself and others seem to be genuinely committed to customer service at its best! I want to thank you for everything you have done for our cleaning business You have shown commitment and loyalty to us and I hope that has reflected back in the quality of our services to you. We hope to continue our working relationship well into the future and I would highly recommend you to any individual who wants to rent a property or to someone who wants to put their property into the hands of a property manager.
