Chris acted for the sale of our Rozelle property at Nelson Street. He was very professional and had the right amount of touch. He knew the market well and achieved a very good result on our behalf.

Chris and his team were great. Made selling my house easy. He put in a BIG effort and I got a great price.

Fred Mitchell

Thank you Chris, Mary and team for your excellent service during the sale of our property at Isabella Street. The auction result was fantastic and we were very happy with the price. We have brought, sold and leased our properties with LJ Hooker Balmain for many years and will continue coming back due to your professionalism and outstanding service. We highly recommend your office to anyone seeking to sell or lease their property.

M & L Scott

Dear Chris & Mary, Thank you for an excellent result in marketing and selling my property. I would like to thank you for your professional manner and outstanding service.

Michael Simmons

Chris Calvert was very helpful and provided us with very useful information that enabled us to make the correct decisions as to the selling of our property. Chris was available whenever we contacted him with questions and supported us right through the auction. We very much appreciated the help Chris provided during this time.

Irene Di Bona

Thanks so much for the happy snaps in front of the signboard! We laughed out loud and we were grateful we weren’t there to blur the shot (we were too busy ‘high-fiving’ mid-air in sunny Perth…..) We’re really grateful for your efforts to keep us on board throughout the whole process despite the miles between us, and appreciated the team effort from you all from start to finish. Thanks again Mary for all your invaluable 'behind the scenes' efforts throughout and holding the phone at the auction – James was as charming and brilliant as we expected! You all well and truly exceeded our expectations! Probably just as well we weren’t there – two grown punters whoo-hooing and air-punching in the background would have been off-putting for all and sundry. Will be in touch! Hoping you can help us again in the future.

Allyson Browne

Brilliant, Mary. That’s a great result. Thanks very much to you, Chris and your team at LJ Hooker Balmain. It took a little while longer but we got what we wanted for our apartment at Wrights Road, Drummoyne and are very happy!

George and Richard Shaw

"I'm fortunate enough to have dealt with Chris both as a buyer and a vendor. As a buyer, Chris is a highly personable agent whom you instantly feel comfortable with in discussing properties in an honest and transparent way. His knowledge on the inner west property market is extensive and one that helps buyers see the positive or negative merits of a property transaction before they buy. As a vendor, Chris always kept me up to date with status and feedback of potential buyers and consistently achieves the outcomes you want as a vendor. He's a true professional in a relaxed, calm and non pressured way and for this reason, has become a well respected and very popular "people person" agent in the Inner West. Congratulations Chris!"

CHERIE BARBER - Director CEO “Renovating for Profit”

"We have used Chris and the Balmain LJ Hooker team for the last 4 properties we have sold in Balmain. For us the attention to detail and coming up with new ways of positioning properties along with excellent pre and post service has been fantastic. No other agent in Balmain comes close in the level of service that LJ Hooker Balmain offers…. And we have just listed our 5th property with Chris Highly recommended if you want someone that you can trust and will give you honest advice.
