Paul McMahon


A local at heart, Paul prides himself on his dedication to the local region and a commitment to building a quality agency to service the local community.

Over the last 25 years, Paul has watched Kingscliff and the surrounding areas grow, transform and mature into the idyllic beachside location it is today. Armed with his many years of experience, Paul prides himself on his knowledge of every block of land in the area and its history.

“Kingscliff is the best place in the world to live - that’s what we are selling. You can put a building anywhere, but ultimately, people are buying the community,” said Paul.

Passionate about the area, Paul has been a long-standing member of the Kingscliff Chamber of Commerce where he is heavily involved in maintaining the culture and looking out for the well-being of the community.

Property has always been a passion of Paul’s who began his career renovating holiday units in Cabarita. In 1988, a chance opportunity with a friend who operated a small, independent agency in Cabarita Beach propelled him into a career as an agent.

Paul went on to attain his real estate licence at TAFE before purchasing the existing LJ Hooker office in Kingscliff along Marine Parade on June 1st 1990.

From the early days with a small team of four salespeople, Paul has grown the agency to a team of 13 across three divisions – sales, property management, and administration.

Paul attributes this success to a focus on providing quality service.

“Our job is always to make sure we put money in our client’s bank account – the sole goal of any agent is to maximise a client’s investments. It’s about their life and their future, and it’s imperative we respect that,” Paul says.

In a dynamic industry like real estate, Paul understands the importance of building a positive team culture which is why his aim has always been to build a team of likeminded people.

“My focus has always been on building the best real estate team on the coast, full of good, honest, hard-working people. This is why I place a lot of importance on training youth in the area and generating excitement in that culture for a career in real estate,” he said.

Since starting the business over 25 years ago, Paul estimates more than 30 trainees have been trained from scratch.

Paul and the team at LJ Hooker Kingscliff are passionate about community initiatives with the agency providing sponsorship to the Kingscliff Surf Life Saving Club, as well as a number of local sporting teams.

We believe that her commitment and dedication to us has been unsurpassed. From the outset we had confidence we were in the right hands and have no hesitation in recommending Rebecca to others who value professionalism, honesty and integrity.
