Bernice did an exception job to sell our investment property, working with the tenants and achieving an outstanding price for the area. Thank you Bernice and LJHooker Kingscliff

C & G Kingscliff

It is hard to describe what a good job Bernice Melnikas did selling our Murwillumbah property. I had a number of valuations of our property but found Bernice had recently sold a property very near ours for a significantly higher return than we had been led to expect for our location. She arranged to do a valuation and the result was extremely encouraging, her assessment of the Murwillumbah market being more positive than other agents. Bernice already had a buyer in mind and quickly arranged an inspection. Very shortly afterwards we had an offer, and soon we had an agreement. We didn't even have to market the property, which was good news because the house was tenanted and that would undoubtedly have been more difficult. In summary, I can't imagine how it could have been done better. Bernice Melnikas was so positive from the outset. Her upbeat assessment of the Murwillumbah market was spot-on. She had the right buyer lined up before we even marketed the place. She delivered on her professional evaluation of the property. She handled everyone concerned professionally and with genuine respect for their situation, including our tenants. She was always available to answer questions and share the benefit of her experience. We had been apprehensive about selling after 33 years, but with her genuine friendliness and proven experience, Bernice Melnikas got the result we wanted, quickly and with no fuss. Thank you for a job well done, Bernice.
