Michael Hughes

Sales Representative

As resident of the Western Suburbs, I know the area and the market very well. In saying this, I am not confined to the area and I am able to cater for a range of requirements of my clients and also provide a service during what is sometimes a very emotional time.

I bring 25 years of experience to LJ Hooker West Lakes and this office has opened up many opportunities for me working under the familiar brand name that is associated with LJ Hooker.

Finishing  in several monthly top 10 awards for SA/NT selling real estate is a testament to the extra effort that I place on service to clients, often achieving a result beyond expectation.

A student of the old school, it is those extra finishing touches and attention to detail that during the complex nature of a real estate transaction ensures you receive the highest and best reward in the marketing of your home.

The extra lengths that I put in with client contact has formed an extensive database of buyers and sellers, putting me in touch with the market and at the same time providing phenomenal results.

I am extremely proud to live in the Western Suburbs with my family and am actively involved with local events and organizations.

Place yourself in the hands of a true professional to discuss your real estate needs and see for yourself why I continually achieve my high level of success.

We were very, very happy with the way Michael Hughes handles our sale. I wasn't quick and there were some glitches along the way but Michael kept us fully informed and kept working on the sale. For a month of the sale period we we overseas and could only be contacted by email. This was a critical time and Michael was just excellent in keeping us informed. Michael's extremely personable manner, attention to detail and willingness to do some little extras was greatly appreciated. He is a great ambassador for his company. We will recommend Michael to family and friends.

We sold a one bedroom unit in West Beach and chose Michael because of his courteous manner and lengthy experience in the business. He did not disappoint in any regard and fulfilled all undertakings given. He was happy to hold inspections, gave us a report after each one, and was professional in all his dealings with us. When it came to sale time he was exemplary in his conduct of arrangements and everything went very smoothly. We would not have any hesitation in recommending him to prospective vendors. He is an example of what other agents should aspire to.

Jim & Julie McDonald

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank Michael Hughes from LJ Hooker, West Lakes for his professional yet friendly manner in my dealings with him at a recent auction I attended. As, I had only came across the house in the last week of the opening period, I needed information quickly when requested. To my surprise and delight, the answers to my questions or copies that I requested came back immediately, which I found extremely helpful. Although, I was not successful in bidding for the property, Michael still had time to come up to me after the auction to thank me for my effort. Further more, he followed up with a phone call to me that very evening to see how I was and to thank me for my contribution. He is honest, trustworthy, helpful and extremely friendly. I have no hesitation recommending Michael to any prospective client, he worked hard to ensure the best results are achieved on the day of the auction and I am more than certain that the vendors would have been ecstatic with the price Michael got for them. To the management of LJ Hooker, Michael is a real asset to your company and brand.

Helen and Danny Nixon

When the time came for us to sell our home we needed an Estate Agent and we decided on you because we had been to many home inspections and witnessed many agents but you stood out as honest, reliable and realistic, and we were not disappointed. Many thanks Michael for your professional and personal attention to the sale of our home at Fulham. At a time when homes were slow to sell your knowledge, experience and advice were very much appreciated. As a result we were able to sell within four weeks. You kept us well informed during the whole process and made yourself available whenever we had queries. You made the selling of our home relatively painless and we really appreciated your hard work. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone selling their home.

Marlene and Lawrie Hogan

Thank you for your efforts on our behalf in the sale of our Grange property. The financial outcome was very satisfactory.

We felt justifiably, that you would do the best for us and so you did. We would not hesitate to recommend your services to family, friends and neighbours.

June & John Pattison

We both thank you sincerely for making the sale of our home of 40 years painless and rewarding, we are extremely pleased with the financial outcome. It was a pleasure doing business with you. We also thank you for your efforts in the purchase of our new home. We are most appreciative of your assistance in dealing with the agent for that property, probably above and beyond your call of duty. Neither Ian nor I will have any hesitation in recommending you to our friends or acquaintances for their real estate negotiations. In fact we have already done so. Thank you again Michael it has been a pleasure.

I was very pleased to have Michael as my agent. In a difficult trading cycle Michael did an excellent job selling my house for its best value with his great networking skills, perseverance and patience to complete the sale successfully.

Julia McBratney

Just a quick note to say thanks for the professional and efficient way you handled the sale of our unit this week. It has been a pleasure dealing with you - firstly with the purchase of the unit a couple of years and now the sale. Tony and I have been in the real estate business for over 25 years and we expect a high standard from agents when we deal with them - and this high standard is what we received from you. Let me tell you this doesn't happen many times - as you know there are many "cowboys" in our industry and it is a great when we come across someone with professionalism and integrity. Once again many thanks - should we purchase again in your beautiful city you will be the first on our contact list.

Barbara and Tony Hymus

Thanks for all your help with the sale of our property. Throughout the proceedings you kept us regularly informed, and we felt that you really cared about the outcome. Particularly in a slowing market, and with us already living interstate, it was good to have the benefit of your hardworking, persistent and experienced approach. Given the state of the market at the time, we felt that you were able to negotiate a good result for us, and the whole process was relatively smooth. We would not hesitate to recommend you to family and friends.
