Thanks Joel. We have been most impressed with the thorough and professional way you handled the sale, and your pleasant and concise communications. In my experience many real estate agents adopt a faux sophisticated style and I’m happy to say we saw none of this with you! You’ve made the whole process very easy for us and it’s greatly appreciated.
Dear Sir or Madam
I would like to highly recommend Joel Van Kalken from LJHooker Port Douglas on his highly professional and friendly service in his selling of my property.
He kept me well informed and persisted with potential clients, one of whom bought the unit.
I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone and would use him again on my next sale.
Joel Van Kalken you're the best

We recently listed our home for sale with LJ Hooker with Joel Van Kalken as our agent. Throughout the whole selling process, we found Joel to be excellent. We were always kept up to date with feedback from potential buyers, good or bad and we were totally confident that our property would sell under Joel's capable hands. We did sell our property in a short amount of time and this was no doubt due to Joel's knowledge and expertise. We would highly recommend Joel to any one who wishes to sell their property.
Thanks so much for having our home featured in the Gazette this week.
Hopefully the huge write up along with all the photos will be a big draw card this weekend.
Rob and I are very pleased with all your efforts, attention to detail and sheer enthusiasm.
See you on Saturday. Cheers
We just wanted to say a big thank you for all your assistance with the purchase. You made everything so easy and were reassuring when we thought things weren't going to well. It was a pleasure dealing with you and I would highly recommend LJ Hooker Port Douglas to people I know and that is because of the service and expertise we received from you.
Once again Thanks
“We would have no hesitation in using Joel to sell any properties in the future. We were impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail.
The fact that Joel knew what his client was looking for and matched his prospective buyer to our property was remarkable. This was even more amazing to us as Joel was not our allocated agent with LJ Hooker but had in fact only inspected our property the once with the LJ Hooker team when we first listed.
Once the buyer showed interest in our property Joel was very efficient in getting all the information from us to the buyer. He kept us informed at every level. He knew we were genuine sellers in the current market and understood we were not interested in protracted negotiation.
We requested confidentiality during and after the selling process was completed, which Joel adhered to fully. Joel listened to us at all times and was respectful of our instructions.
We trust that the buyer also felt at ease with Joel’s honesty, professionalism and high level of interaction.
Thank you Joel for achieving a successful sale.”
“I wish to recommend Joel to any future prospective client.
Joel was involved in selling our house in Port Douglas during touch economic times. Throughout that period he was thoroughly professional, kept in constant communication verbally and via email and kept us thoroughly informed with honest advice.
We admired his calmness and integrity through the whole process and have no hesitation in commending Joel to any future clients.”
I would highly recommend Joel Van Kalken when it comes to handling the sale of your property.
I found him to be very professional and quite innovative in his approach.
He has quite a few new ideas to bring the property into the limelight , and certainly produced the goods
in, what was at the time , a very quiet market .
“IT GIVES ME GREAT PLEASURE TO HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROFESSIONALISM AND SUPPORT GIVEN TO ME BY ONE OF YOUR STAFF, UPON THE EVENT OF THE MARKETING AND SALE OF MY HOME AND PROPERTY.
I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT THE EARLY AND SUCCESSFUL SALE OF THIS PROPERTY, WAS A RESULT OF THE PROFESSIONALISM AND PERSONAL SUPPORT PROVIDED BY MR. JOEL VAN KALKEN, OF L.J.HOOKER, PORT DOUGLAS.
