Alex Hayes

Nobody does it better. Alex joined LJ Hooker in early 2009 and has demonstrated excellent customer service in assisting her clients to buy and sell residential, acreage and prestige properties. This dedication has resulted in her achievement in consistently being named in the LJ Hooker top 15% of sales agents for LJ Hooker internationally. “I’ve really enjoyed working with clients to maximise the selling potential of their properties. Although proud of the accolades and awards I’ve achieved, I pride myself on always putting the customer first to achieve a fantastic result” Through family and community activities, Alex has developed a broad base of contacts and excellent local knowledge, having lived on the Gold Coast for over 30 years and in Nerang and surrounding areas for over fifteen years. A regular competitor in equestrian events allows Alex to pursue her love of horses in her leisure time which also allows her the benefit of ‘talking the talk’ when it comes to acreage properties. A passion for property and a simple philosophy of being understanding and respectful of others ensures she provides an honest, profitable and professional service for her clients. Alex is a Liveability Real Estate Specialist, one of only 100 in Australia.

Better Service

Don’t just take our word for it “Highly knowledgeable and professional, Alex Hayes was a pleasure to deal with. She knew the market very well and was able to sell my property quickly at the price I was looking for.” T. Rose, Boulton Drive, Nerang “We have used LJ Hooker to purchase a property previously and had also noted several other properties in the area being listed and sold by the agent and agency We were really happy with the service and support provided by Alex Hayes throughout our whole process from the initial appraisal to signing up, and then right through to the sale and settlement of our property. Alex was always very courteous, very responsive and always highly professional.” J. & M. Gorman, Pasture Place, Mount Nathan “Alex Hayes was such a pleasure to deal with. She made the communication and transactions so much easier than the real estate agent we used to sell our home to enable us to purchase at Pasture Place. What an agent.....from us saying yes here’s our offer, she was on our doorstep within 4 hours to sign a contract - I just wished our agent was as speedy as Alex especially on that part. Fantastic agent with, great personality” H. Wagstaff, Pasture Place, Mount Nathan “Alex Hayes was genuine and keen to assist us throughout the selling process. We were kept informed and were assured she had our situation and interests in mind during negotiation.” R. Yaun, Eden Park Court, Mount Nathan

“Due to previous real estate agents, we had little confidence in the profession. After much research, we found that Alex Hayes lived up to her reputation of being honest and up front. I found Alex had a pleasant nature, was a refreshing change and she managed to get us very close to our target price. She is a great negotiator. We would recommend Alex Hayes to any prospective sellers or buyers. Lovely lady in every sense of the phrase.” L. Hartenhaler, Shepherd Hill Lane, Mount Nathan “It was a pleasure to deal with Alex, she was professional and proactive throughout, she displayed great integrity and was sensitive to both parties needs. If we need an agent in the future we are going to be contacting Alex.” C. Evans, Winderadeen Drive, Highland Park “We would recommend Alex to all our friends and neighbours. Alex was very professional and never pushy. She has an excellent knowledge of the local market. Alex was very accommodating and dealt with all our requests promptly. We have dealt with many agents over the years (rental, buying and selling) and Alex Hayes would rate amongst the best.” G. & P. Day, Rokeby Court, Nerang “I would have no problems recommending Alex Hayes to anyone. Ours was a unique property to sell and in the higher price range for the area, and Alex managed to move it in just 5 weeks and achieve a price we were after. Very pleasant and easy to deal with and very good at her job.” R. & D. Mudford, Thendara Drive, Mount Nathan

A Better Vision

with Shane Colquhoun Principal Licensee

When Shane Colquhoun, Franchise owner of 3 LJ Hooker offices on the Gold Coast, began his Real Estate career in 1999, his focus was to enrich lives with a level of customer service that had never been heard of in the Real Estate business. This goal has come to life with his businesses and staff consistently awarded for their customer service proving nobody does real estate better.

taking over the reigns in 2003, starting in a humble premises in Lavelle Street. In 2016 the business had grown beyond what the Lavelle Street office could hold, and so the LJ Hooker Gold Coast Supercentre at 2-4 New Street was born. Sir Leslie Hooker first said it in 1928 – “ Real Estate is about People, not Property” and it is this philosophy that underpins our motivation and success today. It all began in Sydney, Sir Leslie Hooker, founder of LJ Hooker, grew an empire of successful people and businesses and with the expansions, the Gold Coast was proud to launch its first office in 1956. Today, the Gold Coast is proud to boast over 17 offices, around 150 salespeople and 60 property managers to service every corner of south east Queensland’s most desirable places to live, work, invest and play. LJ Hooker Nerang opened in 1990, with Shane

Our team boasts many people who have begun the careers as trainees and worked their way to be industry leaders. We are a team of high achievers, with numerous zone, state and national awards.
