Dear Aymen
 
We want to truly thank you for your impeccable services and professional approach to everything you have done for us.
Firstly, you truly demonstrated  your ability, professionalism and determination when you helped us lease a very challenging property which had been listed elsewhere for over 6 months. You managed to get a great tenant and fantastic terms in under 6 weeks. You then secured an amazing tenant for another property in under 2 weeks, with great terms negotiated by you.
Your work ethic, communication skills and tenacity are what sets you apart and makes you a true standout.
We look forward to dealing with you again!

Aymen, Thanks for your prompt assistance with getting us into this warehouse.  It’s been great dealing with you, certainly a refreshing experience compared to some of the real estate agents I have dealt with in Melbourne.

Through our mutual clients, we have an ongoing, continuing working relationship with Derick Jason of LJ Hooker Commercial Silverwater. We have held this relationship for a number of years.
For as long as we have known Derick, he has worked in the capacity of managing agent on a number of leasing transactions.
We have found him to always be professional, proactive and diligent in his approach. He interacts well with all parties, remaining forever thoughtful in protecting his client's interests.
One of Derick's biggest strengths is his effective approach to problem solving and his ability to think outside the square when trying to resolve issues.
Derick's knowledge and understanding of lease documents and the intricate details involved in the management of commercial property make him an asset to any organization, owner and investor

To whom it may concern,
I am pleased to provide a reference for Derick Jason, Senior Asset Manager at LJ Hooker Silverwater.
Derick has been looking after Crown's portfolio for S years now in what can only be described as a very beneficial relationship.
Derick always provides options to us as a landlord to ensure maximum benefit for our assets.
Furthermore, I like the fact that I can pick up the phone and ask Derick a question as a tenant for any of our 18 buildings across the country where I represent our branches in dealing with a number of different types of landlords.
The professional and efficient service that we receive from Derick is well known in my team as well as our Finance team.

This note is written in my capacity as Director of Peer Property Pty Ltd. Our complex located in Seven Hills has been managed by Mr Jason of U Hooker for the past 18 months since inception.
We have been delighted with Mr Jason's professional services and would have no hesitation in using
his services for any additional properties we may acquire, or in recommending him to others.
Through his cheerful, professional conduct, Mr Jason has delighted both us and our tenants by timely attention to matters. In one instance where vandals had stolen the water mains on a Saturday
morning, Mr Jason gave up a chunk of his weekend to obtain and monitor the services of an
emergency plumber to ensure water could be restored before tenants arrived on the Monday. Less
dramatic examples include urgent attention to maintenance of access gates and air-conditioning, as
well as routine maintenance of the grounds. Mr Jason has made good use of his quality and reliable
contractors to ensure that work is properly and cost-effectively maintained.
Always responsive to phone calls and emails, it has been my experience that Mr Jason replies within
minutes to any of my or my tenants enquiries. Problems are dealt with swiftly, thoroughly and
cheerfully.

I am pleased to provide a reference for Mr Derick Jason, Property Investment Manager of U Hooker Commercial at Silverwater. Mr Derick Jason has been managing our property for over 2 years. At all times I
have found him extremely helpful and very reliable. His professionalism is outstanding.

As a property investor it is very comforting to know everything is well taken care of.

and dealing with him has always been well organised.

Peter Johanssen - Willobee Floor Service Sales Pty Ltd


Derick Jason has managed all my commercial properties for awhile now and he has always been well informed about all aspects relating to my properties. When I have had difficult tenants in the past, he has provided informed recommendations and advice on what to do and is always proactive in seeking solutions for issues in a timely and cost effective manner. In addition, when issues with tenants have arisen in the past Derick does an excellent job keeping my interests in mind but also remaining fair to the tenant. In my 20 years as a property investor I have not worked with a property manager that has provided me with the level of outstanding service that Derick provides.

William Chau - Jackfair Pty Ltd

Derick Jason has provided me with exceptional service in relation to my commercial property. From the moment we settled this property, which was sold as a going concern, this tenant has been very difficult. From a complex leasing contract to consistent late payments to the tenant's ulterior motive, Derick nas navigated it all for me. He demonstrated initiative from the start by walking me through the dense lease contract and highlighted the things in the rental contract that concerned him, then went about seeking verification on those concerns so I didn't need to worry. When the tenant began falling behind on his rent Derick patiently but firmly pursued him and initiated talks with the solicitors in order to claim our director guarantee. When the tenant decided he wanted to sell the business and wanted us to lower the rent in order for him to sell his business Derick was instrumental in managing this issue. He has provided expertise advice on the appropriate steps forward. He juggled discussions with multiple parties: my tenant, my tenant's prospective buyer and their solicitors, as well as myself regarding this issue. He has done this in a professional and respectful manner and has continued to make my interests the priority. In addition to dealing with this problem, Derick has also been judging other issues with the property, namely a low hanging tree and a leaking roof. While these issues are on going Derick has remained in regular contact to keep me informed. His attention to detail and level of service regarding this property has been exceptional. He's truly the best in the business.

Mercedes-Benz Parramatta engaged the services of Marcel Elias of LJ Hooker Commercial, Silverwater for a recent project.

During the 12 month assignment, Marcel and his team have always displayed a high level of professionalism. Marcels attention to detail and the manner in which he conducts business is
to be commended.  

Marcel has provided my business with excellent support. I can confidently recommend him as a solid and reliable specialist, and expert, in his field.  
Meon Nehrybecki - Principal - Mercedes-Benz Parramatta 

I had the pleasure of dealing with Marcel Elias to sell our Winston Hills property in 2015. Marcel was always punctual, very reliable and an excellent communicator.

Marcel's expertise and knowledge outshone other real estate agents I had appraisals with, I would not hesitate to recommend Marcel as your agent for any Sydney Commercial Property.

Working with Aymen Sobbi to find a lessee for our office space was a pleasure. He was extremely quick and concise with his communication relating to requirements of us, and best practice to follow. Finding the right tenant can be an exhausting and challenging task, but with the guidance and support of Aymen we were able to find the right tenant efficiently and professionally.

Five Star Party Co. 
 

Earlier this year we decided we had outgrown our current workshop facility at North Parramatta. We liked the central location we were currently in so we decided to look in the local area for another rental property.

We approached a few local agents with limited results. I then contacted LJ Hooker at Silverwater and made contact with Marcel. The same day he had a list of properties that he thought may suit our requirements. We looked at three of these and made an offer on two. One offer was rejected, the other offer after some negotiation, was accepted. We went ahead with this property and with the help of Marcel we secured it at a price and lease conditions that suited us.

Through the process I found Marcel to be a total professional - always on time, always returning calls ifI left a message and always on top of the process of negotiations between ourselves, the owner and solicitors.

I said to him a couple of times that if this was a regular event that I needed a commercial property agent I would not go anywhere else. I would use him exclusively.

Marcel made the whole process simple and straight forward. Thanks for your professional help and attitude Marcel.

Looking to move a business you have owned and operated for 26 years from the one location can be a daunting task, but with the understanding and professionalism showed by Aymen Sobbi, we were able to find the perfect location to relocate our business to. Aymen was considerate of our confidentiality and extremely helpful in finding the perfect location as well as back up options to view which provided us great perspective of the market environment and value in order to find our best fit.       

Pronto Pak

A few months ago this firm made a decision to sell one of our investment properties out in Wetherill Park, NSW. The seniors of the firm decided that we didn't want a sale process that will drag on and on, like some sale campaigns we had done in the past with some real estate agents. I was given the task of finding the best commercial property agent out there to handle the sale for us, and so I went about ringing and getting proposals from different agents from different real estate companies, big and small.

One of the agents that I interviewed was Marcel Elias. Marcel presented very well, certainly spoke like he knew his stuff extremely well, and provided me with a long list of the successful sale and leasing deals he had done in the area in recent times. He was impressive. But what really struck me was Marcel's go-getter attitude. You get a call or email from him fist thing in the morning. He chases this angle and that angle like there's no tomorrow. He doesn't give up that easily, and will chase and chase, and nudge and nudge. I sensed that he was the type of operative who doesn't wait for things to happen, he makes things happen. He embodied the same attitude and character that we demand from all our lawyers in the firm.

Long story short, we awarded the agency to Marcel. Long story short, Marcel delivered, and in exactly the same manner that we had expected. And we say this to anyone who asks: if the stakes are high and you want the best possible sale or leasing outcome for you, don't muck around, deal with the best. Deal with Marcel.

Dear Aymen

We are very grateful for all of your hard work introducing Leoch Battery to our property at Tarlington Pl, Smithfield. 

Your feedback following each inspection was brilliant, the sort of information that any property manager or owner could ask for.
 
You were diligent with your follow up, with information you required from us, and vice versa with what we required from the prospect lessee.
 
We always felt that you had our best interests in mind, given LJH Commercial had been appointed to market and lease the property on our behalf.
 
You introduced the new tenant (that is an entity that has listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange) within approximately 1 week after the prior tenant vacating - we couldn’t have asked for a better result really.
 
The tenant is very happy with their new Sydney head office, and we are happy with a tenant that will be a good fit in the premises.
 
Thank you again for all of your hard work.
