Troy McKinstry

Principal and Licensee

Having come from a sporting background and knowing what is takes to succeed and be passionate about what you do as a profession, Troy decided to pursue Real Estate as a career path after a life of sport, and entered the real estate world while overseas in London.

After running a successful Real Estate company for 5 years, and seeing the opportunities that it presented, Troy and his wife decided to head back to the beaches of Sydney, where Troy joined the LJ Hooker Network and found a position working with offices at LJ Hooker Seaforth & Frenchs Forest.

Working in these areas for 4 and a half years, gave Troy a great insight into the Northern Beaches Real Estate Market and what it takes to become not only a successful agent, but a well respected one.

Realising the potential in the Frenchs Forest market, Troy is now the Principal for LJ Hooker Frenchs Forest. This has proved to be very successful with Troy's passion and enthusiasm and business knowledge, the business continues to go from strength to strength.

Troy has a strong belief in maintaining honesty, integrity and professionalism and providing a level of service and high standards that is unmatched in today's real estate marketplace. Entrusting the sale of your home to our team of dedicated professionals is a smart move.

Troy and his team at LJ Hooker Frenchs Forest are consistent supporters of local schools, sporting organisations and our main national charity Cystic Fibrosis.

Troy was always contactable, did what he said he was going to do and overall went above and beyond to make what can be a very stressful time a smooth journey. Can not speak highly enough and would recommend Troy to everyone.

Troy & his team were fantastic. They helped me in making very important decisions re renovation & helped me through every step of the process.They were extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.

Ian Fisher

Troy really worked hard to get us the best price. At all times he was thoroughly professional, demonstrating a sound and intuitive knowledge of real estate practice - particularly in our area. Troy exhibits high levels of effective communication and at all times was courteous and good natured. We thoroughly recommend him and wish him well for his bright future in real estate.

Ann and Frank Phillips

Troy has kept us informed of the Davidson real estate market for at least two years, so when it came to the point where we were ready to sell we turned to Troy for his assessment. Troy did not disappoint us! He has been extremely helpful in all aspects of the appointment, advice on marketing, organising the Internet sites and following through on all our requirements. We were especially impressed with his negotiating skills and he achieved a selling price which met his initial estimate and our expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending Troy and his assistants to all any person looking to use Troy and LJH.

"From our first meeting with Troy McKinstry we were confident that he would be the perfect agent to sell our property. He knew the local area extremely well, understood what potential buyers were looking for and that he would be honest in his dealings with all parties. During the sale process our opinion of Troy only increased as he calmly guided us on property presentation, marketing strategies and navigated us through various pitfalls and speed bumps and helped to reduce our stress levels. Throughout the process we found Troy to be extremely professional and honest with his dealings with all parties, simply looking to have both satisfied buyers and sellers. The sale result was above our expectations and our positive relationship remained throughout the settlement process. We would have no hesitation in recommending Troy and his team.

Anthony Shepley

We had bought from Troy and considered him the obvious choice for our sale. Always helpful and responsive, the team at LJ Hooker Frenchs Forest take a lead from their principal and have an excellent approach to business. They are a polite and intelligent team who know their business well. Troy is a true professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family for any sale or purchase in his area again.

Jo Kohe-Love, Frenchs Forest

I chose Troy to sell our property as he was extremely knowledgeable. I also put myself in the position of the buyers and selected the agent I felt would relate to them best. We sold at a turning point in the market so were understandably nervous. Everything Troy expected to happen during the sale process did happen and he handled the entire process extremely well and got us a very good result.

Ben & Megan Smart

We wanted to express our appreciation for the great success you helped us achieve in the sale of our property in Frenchs forest. From bringing in inspection traffic, to organising open houses and negotiations with potential buyers and finally settling on price, we found your team to be very professional and personable. Using a great marketing strategy with only a few open houses you were able to secure the sale well above the price range we were looking for. We are delighted with the service you provided, the results achieved and the time in which it was completed. I would without hesitation recommend you to anyone looking to sell their property at every opportunity.

Feedback from our Community Information Evening

After being courted by several local Real Estate Agents over the past two years, when my wife and I finally decided to proceed with the sale of our house the decision was easy. There was only one person that stood out from the crowd in every possible way! Troy McKinstry was the most professional in his presentation, he gave the most sincere and honest advice, he had the warmest and friendliest demeanour and his total belief and commitment gave my wife and I the utmost confidence in him. Having lived in our house for over 33 years we had absolutely no idea what was required to sell a house; so Troy stepped in and calmly and reassuringly helped us through the whole process. He arranged everything from designer styling to rubbish removal and did such an amazing job with the marketing and open house that we were receiving attractive offers within hours! Within three days we had received several offers that were well above our expectations and by day four we had a contract signed and sealed! I’m not the easiest person to please but Troy has impressed me immensely, so, If you’re thinking of selling your house this month, next month or even next year, engage with Troy at your earliest convenience and enjoy the ride. YOU WONT REGRET IT!
