Caroline Rickard

Senior Sales Consultant

Caroline Rickard has been a local resident for over 25 years. Not only has she been an active community member in that time, involved in many groups and committees, she and husband Wally have raised their family of 8 children.

Caroline has worked in a number of service industries and her high levels of interest and people skills led her into the real estate industry a few years ago. Caroline is now very excited about bringing her extensive real estate training and skills into her home town. Caroline's in depth knowledge of local issues and its people can only help to enhance the high levels of enthusiasm she already has in offering her services to you.

One of my goals is to obtain the highest price in the current market for your home and for you to move onto life’s next adventure. As presentation equates to value call me in prior to going on the market so we can discuss what you may need to do to maximise how we achieve this higher figure.

She takes great pride in the honesty and integrity that is integral with her nature. That extra phone call, that extra follow up and that extra smile are what makes Caroline such an asset our Drysdale team.

We have used LJ Hooker for 24 years we had a rental property, so it was CJ Keane before that we haven't had any problems. Caroline was fantastic. I would highly recommend anyone that needs to sell in that area to get Caroline. Great Job in selling our house within 2 weeks. I would use Caroline if we had a property in that area again to sell again.

From the 1st phone conversation with Caroline I new this was going to be a smooth process. The sale was quick, easy and she was mindful of the tenants we had in the property at the time of the house going on the market. Also there was no pressure in the sale. Thank you 10/10

Caroline provided excellent service. A quick sale was required say a price that would get results but was in keeping with the market. She provided great feed back and communication during and after the sale. I have been very happy with her.

Caroline provided excellent service and understanding. The process was sometimes difficult due to outside factors, not due to Caroline, and she managed and patiently worked through the sales process until we achieved the sale. I am very happy with her service and when and if I have a property for sale in the area I will contact her. I

Thanks Caroline we’re absolutely rapt! Four and a half months is great and were pretty happy with price in the end. All happened pretty quickly. I wanted to email you to just let you know how impressed we were and happy with the service we got from both yourself and Marcus. You both were constantly updating us with inspections and what people thought about the house as well as what little things we needed to do to make the house look better. We couldn't fault one thing and were so glad we went through you guys. We're just really happy and we thank you both. Will speak to you soon.

Peter & Denyse Teague

We recently sold a property through you with the assistance of Caroline Rickard & just wanted to give some feedback on what was a very positive experience. Caroline was friendly, well informed & helpful throughout the sale journey. The sale of the property was the result of a death in the family & Caroline was sensitive & attentive, in handling what was a difficult & sad time for us. Caroline stayed in touch regularly & made us feel like we were the top of her list, even though our property was at the lower end of the market & in serious need of repairs. She ran documents to our front door, even brought over the curtain hooks we were looking for & delivered us a gift & a card when the property did not sell quickly. Her advice & counsel were given in such a way that felt very much in partnership with Caroline & ultimately her input led to a successful outcome. In our dealings with you & your office staff, we were impressed by the friendly & helpful service at every turn. We would certainly recommend Caroline highly & use her again should the need arise.

Jacqui & Kean Selway

If you’re looking to buy a home in the Bellarine district, you can’t go past LJ Hooker Real Estate Agency. I had the best and easiest of times finding the right home and area to suit my needs through their agency. They made it an enjoyable chore and I'm very grateful to Caroline and Staff at the Drysdale LJ Hooker branch for giving me their extra time and trouble that I really needed to make my task easier. Thanks a million.
