What Our Clients Say

“We engaged Paul Hoare of Dowling Real Estate Lake Macquarie to sell an aunt’s property for her as she now lives in Low Care Accommodation in a Nursing Home. We had approached another agent who did not get back to us when promised. Right from the beginning of our association Paul was on time for every meeting and when it was decided to go to auction he pulled out all the stops – from holding two open houses a week plus other viewings on request.

As we live in another state Paul kept us up to date by frequent phone calls and e-mails. We trusted him completely and was repaid with an amazing auction that had twenty eight registered bidders and an outcome of $65,000 above the reserve price!!

I can highly recommend Paul Hoare to any prospective property sellers for his client loyalty, determination and dedication, plus he is a really nice man.”

Jenny and Stephen Cook

Kain Bliss (vendor)

Gweneth Gapps

“Many thanks for the enthusiasm, energy and patience you brought to the tasks of selling our house – and that was just at the initial meeting.

Good on you Dowling Real Estate Lake Macquarie, you are our dream real estate agent! ”
