Dear Ted, I'd like to express my sincere thanks for your effort in securing the Sale of my Unit 2 at Jabiru Lodge 60 Oriole Avenue Peregian Beach. Not only did you achieve the Sale in what I thought was record time, but it was carried out in a both Professional and Friendly manner. Your advice and subsequent presentation of the property to prospective buyers, showed the value of employing a reputable Firm with qualified Staff and a long and successful history in the Property Market of the area. Again,Thanks Ted

Jock Muir

Dear Ted, Just a note to thank you for your wonderful service to us in the sale of our home in Peregian Beach. We appreciate your attention to detail and keeping us informed and for the quick sale. Once again thank you Ted.

Owen & Pam

Ted Schimke is a legend. We first met Ted when we bought a housein Peregian Beach in 1998. Ted was the selling agent. And now we've had the pleasure of having Ted act on our behalf as the seller of that same property 14 years later. In both circumstance Ted redefined our impressions of what a real estate agent can be. In buying, he was straight forward, truthful and helpful. In selling, he was a magician, getting a good price (not to mention a sale) in a terrible market and was always offering sound advice. In Ted we felt we had the best marketing, realistic pricing advice and boundless energy being expended on our behalf. LJ Hooker should be proud to have Ted Schimke on board. He is a wonderful example of what every real estate agent should aspire to be. Thank you Ted!

Alan & Jan Daniel

Dear Ted, I would just like to thank you and your team for the very professional, prompt and friendly service you gave to my wife and me during the recent purchase of our house at Peregian Beach. What you said you would do, you did. When you said you would be there, you were. I look forward to working with you again.

To Whom it May Concern, I would like to commend Ted Schimke on his handling of the sale of my brother, Ross’ and my property at 36 Kingfisher Drive, Peregian Beach. At the start of the selling process, Ted gave Ross and I a fairly accurate figure of what he thought the property would sell for but we didn’t take his advice hoping for a higher and in retrospect an unrealistic figure. Ted worked hard to make our property visible through ‘open house’ days which compensated for our refusal to invest money in newspaper advertising. At the end when we decided to drop our price, Ted was quick to follow our instructions with regard to contacting any interested ‘lookers’ and again had an ‘open house’ which resulted in the sale. We would like to thank Ted for his patience and very professional manner in handling our sale.

Jan & Ross

I am writing to inform you of the excellent service and professionalism afforded to me by Ted Schimke and the team at LJ Hooker during the entire process. At all times in dealing with Ted he has been professional, courteous and patient. Whilst I understand that the agency was acting in the best interests of the seller, Ted went out of his way to assist me in the purchase of the property, particularly when the bank documents were sent to an incorrect address by a financier causing a great deal of stress to meet settlement deadlines. I remain convinced that without the extraordinary efforts of Ted that the outcome would not have been successful. I have no hesitation in dealing with, or recommending Ted for all property matters in the future. As a result or Ted’s efforts, I was persuaded to rent the property through your property management section. I was again greeted with prompt, friendly service through Charlie Campbell and his team, and was pleasantly surprised when they provided me with a tenant almost immediately. Please pass on my gratitude to your staff for a job well done. I look forward to an ongoing relationship with LJ Hooker Peregian Beach.

I write this testimonial to recognise the fantastic and expedient service provided to me by Ted Schimke from LJ Hooker Peregian Beach. After deciding to sell my house and contacting Ted on referral he took the time to listen to my needs and requirements, and discussed objectively the approach that would best suit my property and asking price. This resulted in a quick sale at a price I was happy to accept. What particularly impressed me was the obvious experience and feedback offered to me at all times, not being in the industry myself, and being my first house sale in Australia I felt confident that Ted was operating with my best interest in mind and not just telling me what I wanted to hear. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Ted formally and shall certainly pass on referrals knowing that his future clients will be looked after.

Tim Velema

Thankyou very much for making our home buying at Peregian Beach the most relaxed and stress free experience. We felt very comfortable with your help and trusted that we were in good hands right from the start. We will certainly come to you for any further business down the track. We love our A-Frame house! Thanks again,

Corinne and Andy

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated Ted Schimke’s professionalism and easy and pleasant working style while I was purchasing my property in Marcus Beach. He was very effective in maintaining quick turnarounds through the negotiations with the vendor and in working seamlessly with the tenants as well as solicitors for both parties. All of these things made it more likely that an agreement would be struck and a contract concluded than not, and experience has taught me this is not something that can be taken for granted. Ted was also helpful in putting me in touch with the property management group who were letting the property for the current owner, and I have retained them for the rest of the tenancy. They too have been very easy and professional to work with. If I weren’t keen to live in the property myself as soon as the existing tenancy ended, then I would retain them for subsequent leasing. Please pass on my thanks to your staff. Based on these positive experiences, LJ Hooker Peregian Beach will be my first point of call for future property transactions in the area.

Jane Craig

It is a pleasure to provide this testimonial to Ted Schimke. The purchase of our new home only succeeded due to the commitment of Ted who was absolutely amazing to deal with, having patience over and above anyone’s expectations. Ted never got lost in the moment, even though we seemed to be overwhelmed at the time. He was totally professional and unbelievably organised. We are privileged to have dealt with him and will recommend everyone we know to him in the future. Craig & Nicole Dewhirst
