Paul McMahon

Licensee in Charge

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 30 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 and the Tweed Coast is the best place in the world to live - that’s why people want to buy into it. You can put a building anywhere, but ultimately, people are buying the location and 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 part of Paul’s DNA; he began his career on the Tweed Coast after purchasing and renovating holiday units on the beach in Cabarita Beach. 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, he has continued to grow the agency to what it is today across three divisions – sales, property management, both permanent and holiday.

It has always been Paul’s focus to provide quality service.

“We are here to serve and our job is always to do our best to put the most money possible 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 utilising the latest technology. Paul has also always placed a lot of importance on training local youth as a part of our of giving back to the community and it has enriched the culture of LJ Hooker Kingscliff.” he said.

Since starting the business over 30 years ago, Paul has trained more than 30 trainees from scratch.

Paul and the team at LJ Hooker Kingscliff having always been committed to community initiatives with the agency providing sponsorship over the years to the Surf Life Saving Clubs, as well as many local sporting teams and organisations.
