What our customers say

See all

There are real estate agents and then there is Shane. First Class marketing plan with an amazing team of professionals on hand. State of the art communications software keeping clients and would-be buyers up to date every week. Progressive and reliable feedback during the entire campaign. We found Shane to be an exceptional performer, methodical, communicative, hard-working, consistent and approachable. Our experience with real estate agents over the years has been frustrating. Most agents promise you a great deal but rarely deliver as they work to a formula and cannot think outside the box. Shane not only delivers but works closely with his clients and exceeds expectations every time. Finally we have found an agent we can work alongside and entrust all our properties to him and his team.

Christine & Greg Burndred

We selected Shane as a result of seeing him when looking at potential a potential purchase. He was professional and very accomodating. When we chose to sell our property we had little doubt he would be the best agent to work for us. It was a good decision. He was professional, open and committed throughout the sale process. As we are overseas his regular communication and willingness to keep in contact was excellent. His strategy for the sale was thoughtful and deliberate and his knowledge of local markets very helpful. We would recommend Shane to any potential sellers in the area.

Kev & Dee Stone

have been looking at houses in the Northern Beaches on and off for five years waiting for the purchase of my property from a developer. Through those five years, Shane and the team at LJ Hooker Frenchs Forest have been outstanding. I have viewed numerous properties with different agents but have always felt most comfortable with Shane and the team. Shane has taken the time to listen to what Im looking for. I found 5 Spence Place, Belrose in February and Jake Zipevski from LJ Hooker Frenchs Forest had the carriage of the sale. Jake is such a friendly, courteous and personable young man and will have a big future in the industry. Under Shane's leadership, they negotiated with the vendor when I had an issue with the settlement of my own property. Every interaction I have had with any of the team from LJ Hooker Frenchs Forest has been a great experience...they are such a warm, encouraging group of people. Even bumping to Shane in the supermarket, he is just the same; engaging, listening and encouraging. He was very honest about any issues with the property I have purchased and was very helpful recommending a conveyancer who has turned out to be an absolute Godsend. I could not recommend Shane Broekman and the team at LJ Hook Frenchs Forest highly enough. I have every confidence in doing business with them.

Glenyce Gers

We are very pleased with Shane Broekman and everything he has done to ensure a great result in the sale of our beautiful house in Davidson. He has shown us how honesty really is the key to selling real estate, for both the buyers and the sellers. We have first met Shane 4 years ago and we have called him several times over the years for advice and appraisals and all along was the agent we respected the most. If we ever buy another house in the Forest, we'd only want to buy off Shane and equally, we'd only recommend him to anyone looking to sell. Very happy customers we are!

Lily & Justin Cant

Shane made us feel very comfortable during the sale process and kept us updated at all times. He and the team achieved a great sale price for us !

Paul & Bernadette Honour

Shane and Jake were great! The market changed very quickly on us between deciding to sell and putting the house on the market and Shane did a fantastic job keeping us fully informed all the way along. He has a great relationship with a wide range of trades and arranged all the little things that needed to happen to get the house ready for sale.

Kumar & Nimisha Kalimuthu

Our dealings with Shane and the entire team at LJ Hooker Forest were always extremely pleasurable and positive. From the moment we first met Shane and throughout the entire marketing and sales process we were very impressed with his attention to detail, his professionalism, enthusiasm and positivity. Shane is very passionate about what he does and never failed to deliver on his promises. He has great knowledge of the local area and the competition in the current market. We were constantly kept in the loop by Shane. Any challenges were immediately discussed and resolved and, needless to say, we were more than happy with the final outcome. We have and will continue to highly recommend Shane to anyone who is looking for an outstanding agent in the area. Thank you, Shane!

Roger & Sonja Krelshem

We met Shane 8yrs ago during the purchase of the house he's just sold for us. We chose Shane as our agent because of his market knowledge, experience in the area and consistent enthusiasm about every detail of our campaign, We found him to be open and honest and patiently walked us through the sale process. He masterfully negotiated on our behalf. Thank you Shane !

Cindy & Brendan Smart

Shane was a perfect choice for our home sale as he was professional, confident and detailed. He kept communication with us open and consistent and listened to our thoughts and views. Shane has a fantastic attitude and is always positive, friendly and courteous.

Jacqui & Carlo Ashton

I will admit that I had no idea where to start with selling my house - I went on the Perfect Agent website, who recommended three agents and once I had met them all, the choice was easy. Shane came to our first meeting fully prepared for any question I had for him, and then posed lots that I hadn't even thought of. He was realistic with the estimate of my property and took me through the process step by step. There was no pressure to choose his agency, but once the decision was made, well, the rest was 'easy'. He's a local guy that loves the area, has a passion for what he does, and he does it very well. Throughout the whole process not only did Shane keep me informed of everything that was happening with my house and the local market, but also made a point of finding out how I was coping with the whole process. I think we were both pleastantly surprised by the outcome and I have no hesitation in recommending Shane as the person to call.
