The reason I chose Darren Cowey to act as Sales Agent for sale of my home was because I sensed from the outset that Darren understood how I was approaching the task. To get the best price, I knew the buyer had to be someone who could see the potential of the block and the older style house. They had to fall in love with it in the same way that I had a decade and a half earlier. For me it was much more than just a business transaction. Rightly or wrongly it was an emotional letting go. I needed the home to be sold to someone who ‘got it’! I could not have been happier with the way Darren handled all aspects of the sale - from day one. I would recommend Darren to anyone who has a property they are reluctant to part with, but know they can do so if the right buyer arrives. Darren understood from the outset what kind of buyer I was seeking, and that made all the difference.

Nick - Vendor

We had the pleasure of engaging James Rawkins and Darren Cowey as Real Estate Agents for the sale of our property in late 2018 at Modbury. From inception to handover, both James and Darren were professional, eager to help and provided honest advice and feedback that saw the property reach its best potential for opening day. Engaging both James and Darren, gave us the ability to pool resources and target potential buyers from the entire northern and north eastern suburbs via use of their substantial database. The techniques employed by James and Darren, saw our property achieve a huge turnout for its first weekend opening. Through the use of targeted advertising and targeted selling strategies, our property sold at the first open and for a value that was substantially higher than our personally set target goals. It is without a doubt, that the property would have not have reached the exceptional sale price without the help of James and Darren. We personally see James and Darren as the ‘A-Team’ for property sales within the North and North Eastern suburbs of Adelaide, and recommend the team to our friends and family whenever a property is being considered for sale.

Matthew & Nicole - Vendors

His professionalism, and positive nature, helped us gain the result we wanted, while minimising that stress. Thank you, Darren. We will happily recommend your services in the future. And thank you to L.J. Hooker for selling our home so efficiently...

Colin and Glynis Morgan, Fairview Park

Thank you for sending Darren Cowey to help us with the sale of our house in Fairview Park. I commend Darren on his performance as he had a clear strategy, kept us well informed and best of all we were happy with the outcome. We have dealt with several agents in a short period of time and Darren definitely has been the best by far. Darren asked us what we would appreciate through out the process, we requested to just be informed as this has lacked through previous sales. Darren went over and above by keeping us up to date regularly and recommended the best ways to proceed.

Andrew - Vendor

We dealt with Darren for both a purchase and a sale of a property. Darren was very professional, he always kept us informed of what was happening, his communication was very efficient. Most importantly he got us the figure we were looking for with our sale. I would recommend Darren to anyone looking to sell their property.

After talking to several real estate agents to sell our parents property, we were looking for a real estate agent who could communicate and listen and have the best intentions for our parent’s throughout the course of selling their property. We decided to go with Darren Cowey from LJ Hooker Modbury. From our first meeting with Darren, we felt like he would look after our parents and do his utmost to get the amount we needed for the sale of their property. His communication skills were exemplary and he went over ALL aspects of the sale and kept up informed at every turn in the process. Darren was focused and respectful of our needs and when things didn’t go right he was there to turn it around which made us comfortable and happy. Well done Darren you did it for us and we can now relax.

After carefully screening multiple Real-Estate Agents to sell my elderly mother's property, I was looking for a Real-Estate Agent who could communicate/actively listen and have the best Intentions for my mother’s health and well-being throughout the course of selling her property. I decided to give LJ Hooker Walkerville/Modbury a call after they were recommended by a personal friend. Darren Cowey arranged an appointment to meet with my mother and I. From our first initial dialogue with Darren, my mother and myself felt like he was the first Real-Estate Agent that stood out from the rest, his easy going nature, communication skills, understanding of my mother’s age, cultural background and health were key factors on why we chose Darren. Darren explained in detail all the marketing strategy options on offer (pros/cons.) Throughout our deliberation Darren remained focused/respectful on what Mum would be comfortable and happy with. Well Darren delivered, he knew when to make the right adjustments in regards to marketing and used his sound negotiation skills to obtain a settlement price that Mum was very pleased with. Lastly, from the beginning right till the end, Darren showed the upmost professionalism, integrity, compassion and communication, he is a true gentleman and is exceptional at what he does.

Thank you for all the hard work you put in during the auction campaign and clear communication through the sale, settlement and beyond. Very happy with the outcome and efficient service provided!

Andrew Gilleard - Banksia Park

Darren was passionate about real estate and his role in the sale process. We had no hesitation in selecting him as our agent over other candidates because of these qualities. Throughout the 3 week process to sale by auction, Darren kept us informed and regularly kept in touch to make sure our questions were answered. He was very reassuring for the entire time from signing to actual sale and he even kept in touch post sale which something we have not experienced previously. Not having sold by auction before we were uncertain of the process but Darren allayed our concerns and openly and honestly helped us through the process. We were very impressed on the day of the auction as Darren had brought along the team from LJ Hooker and each of the team answered all our questions and kept us fully informed throughout the auction. We were absolutely delighted with the outcome and have no hesitation in recommending Darren to our family and friends.

Charmaine & Paul Noble - Wynn Vale
