Alex has exceeded my expectations with his dedication, professionalism and degree of commitment to achieve the desired outcomes.

Ray Brodie

Buyer Review - Always happy to help!

We purchased a property in Forster through Carly in June. We live in Victoria and due to Covid couldn't get up to see the property. Then NSW went into lockdown and the unit settled and we still hadn't seen it. Less than ideal. However, thankfully we had Carly on board with us who organised for video chats and kept us updated through every step of the process. She took the stress out of a very stressful time and we couldn't be more grateful. We are looking forward to welcoming her over for a celebratory drink once we can get up to Forster to celebrate. Thanks for all your efforts Carly


Vendor Review - Sale of property expertly managed

Alex recently managed the sale of my property. His communications were regular, clear and polite. Alex advertised my property and assisted with the subsequent open houses and follow-ups very efficiently. Alex achieved a good figure for the property, during the Covid pandemic. I would recommend Alex and his competent team member Ebony, should you require any assistance with property transactions in the Forster and surrounding areas.

Brian McGuigan

Vendor Review -  Helpful & dedicated

I am so happy with my experience with Alex Jacob selling our property in Forster, and it was sold in a short time frame. He keep us informed through each stage, and answered our questions with conference and experience. Thank you Alex and the team.

Perry Buckles

Buyer Review - An agent who goes above and beyond

We recently bought a gorgeous little place in Forster to give ourselves a sea change. With our budget, and the fact we're in the middle of a pandemic, it was a massive challenge for Alex. He understood exactly what we needed, helped us find it, managed us through a vendor pulling the plug at exchange, did video walk throughs for us (we're 200km away), coordinated our building inspections and ultimately made the whole process really smooth and painless. It was like having our own personal buyers agent and we're stoked with the place we bought. Special shout out to Ebony who was super helpful too. Can't recommend Alex and the whole JKL team highly enough. Excellent agent. 5 stars out of 5!


Vendor Review - Alex was friendly, professional & informative. Highly recommend him to friends.

Alex is very professional in his job. He shows enthusiasm and passion which gave us confidence in his service. He kept us informed with the process of selling the house from start to finish. Giving us feedback from potential buyers & providing a sale price within our expectations. Thank you Alex & the team at JKL for making this sale a smooth process.


Buyer Review - Shattered long held belief!

Alex has been very supportive and honest with us from the first enquiry through to the present stage in the purchase of our first home. Popular beliefs of the moral fibre of real estate agents and that they are out to squeeze the highest premium out of buyers to increase their commission and for the sole benefit of vendors have been shattered as Alex has proved to be working in the best interests of both parties which I found refreshing, if not sobering. I highly recommend Alex to buyers and vendors alike.

Wayne Edwards

Vendor Review - Awesome Agent - Highly Recommend

Alex recently helped my wife and I list and sell my father's property in Tuncurry. This was a very difficult time for us and Alex's care, professionalism and understanding was very much welcomed. His knowledge of the local real estate market is second to none in my opinion and what he estimated Dad's property was worth was ultimately the sales price achieved. I have found that a number of agents in the Forster / Tuncurry area "buy" listings for prospective vendors and provide a higher evaluation of a properties worth just to get said listing. As mentioned Alex certainly wasn't this way inclined. During the sales negotiation process and associated legalities, Alex keep us updated daily and provided a clear picture of what exactly was happening with contract exchanges, settlement periods etc. This was awesome. I highly recommend Alex and the team at JKL and will certainly be utilising their services going forward with any of my real estate requirements be that purchasing or selling.


Buyer Review - 5 Star Performance

Michael Taylor

Buyer Review - Ethically purchasing our first home

The experience with Carlie when looking at and negotiating a price on a house was a great experience. Carlie was honest and did not hide imperfections she was aware of and was willing to take all offers back to the owner. My partner and I ended up securing our first home at a price that both we and the seller could agree on without the stress or a pseudo bidding war. Once we had made our first offer and it was accepted with condition Carlie happily negotiated with us to secure the price without bringing other competitors into the mix. It was a pleasure and a heartfelt experience working with Carlie and I would whole heartedly recommend her to assist with a purchase either as a family home or investment.

Alex organised a great intensive campaign for selling the house. He held 3 open days the first 3 weeks at prime time 11am on Saturdays.

Buyer Review - Contacted Carlie and liased with her enquiring and ultimately the purchase of property in Forster

Carlie had exceptional knowledge of the market in the Forster area . I can best describe Carlie as a " can do " girl !! Everything through the process she helped with . That being assisting in providing us with access to the property on numerous occasions at short notice , assisting us in finding cleaners for our other property in Forster and contacting them first hand , assisting us finding conveyancing , assisting us finding storage with our boat , working with us outside of work hours and when it would appear we would have to pull out of the purchase due to personal reasons , coming up with a solution of renting for a to allow us to continue with the purchase of our dream home .

Larraine & Douglas

Vendor Review - Awesome communication from start to finish

We recently sold a property with Carlie in a tumultuous 2020 environment. JKL stepped up to the mark early in the piece and adapted their marketing and open house strategies to meet Government guidelines. Carlie's clear and very regular communication was a stand out compared to other real estate agents we have dealt with and we particularly liked that Carlie would give verbal and written information on every lead giving us confidence that every enquiry was managed through to its end. As a result of Carlie's hard work and dedication to her industry, we got the sale, and even though it is a little less than our asking price, we are pleased with the result in what has been a most unusual year.
