Phil managed the sale of our house, while we were living interstate, with total professionalism. He provided timely advice and kept us well informed at all times. He effected the sale with expediency and minimal fuss. We were very appreciative of his efforts.

John and Kris Maguire, Alice Springs

Philip Clay provided professional, efficient and effective service to us during the entire period of selling process, which we greatly appreciate. This is in contrast to some other staff in LJ Hooker who are very passive and slow in responding quires from us. Philip Clay deserves to be congratulated and promoted. Regards

Yong-Ling, canberra

Philip Clay was just a pleasure to work with. We were so excited and surprised when we had an offer in before the first open house and had sold that weekend! Phil just made everything so easy and completely understood our needs. I can't thank him enough for him calm but effective communication style.

Hannah Jenkins

We used L J hooker and Phil Clay as our agent to sell our property. Phil is an excellent agent thoughtful and helpful, courteous, friendly and understanding. He fully explained our options, the advantages and disadvantages of each and helped us choose a sales strategy. He organised the advertising, inspections and negotiations fully and professionally and helped us get the best price we could. I would recommend Phil Clay and L J Hooker Kaleen to anyone wishing to sell a property.

Gordon Branch, Melba

I contacted Phil Clay numerous times with questions regarding the sale of my house and the procedure as I was convinced it was going to be complicated and traumatic experience. Phil sold my husbands house at the same time and noothing was ever too much trouble. Phil answered all my enquiries patiently and completed requests thoroughly to a high standard. While we were on our honeymoon and my house was on exhibition, Phil ensured the property was tidy and relieved my worries immensely. The whole process of selling my house went smoothly from beginning to end, I was kept informed and certainly very pleased with the result. Working with Phil was a pleasure and I would recommend his services to anyone thinking of selling their home.

Pauline Lamson (Coombs)

Phil provided excellent service: respectful, sensitive to our needs, very sound judgement and advice on dealings with prospective buyers. I would recommend him to other potential buyers and vendors without hesitation. After sales service has been outstanding also.
