What our customers say

See all

I was extremely happy with the professionalism of Nereda Ball with handling the sale of 93 Cecilia St , knowing the property would have to suit someone who loves an old house with a big garden, it was already going to be a hard task , but with Nereda’s knowledge,professionalism and patience she stuck with it and pulled through. Thank you Nereda, I would recommend Nereda to all family and friends.

Nerida Ball in my mind was by far the best choice of agent for our property. We understand that ours was a difficult challenge and much less straight forward than a normal real estate sale. Nerida refused to give up and ultimately succeeded in what was a rather difficult sale. We are grateful for her determination and delighted with the result. Ian and joan sloan.

My first, out of many, very pleasant real estate experiences! It is really simple, Nereda has always been accessible, friendly, honest, thorough and professional, as a real estate agent myself I understand the need for these essentials and that these particular attributes are somewhat lacking throughout the industry. Without a doubt I recommend Nereda to anyone requiring a solid and knowledgeable sales agent and after having my property tenanted for several years through the agency would thoroughly recommend the property management services her office extends. A heartfelt thank you to both Nereda and Gary for a job well done.

Fiona King, Arthurs Lake, Tasmania

I have been in real estate for over 20 years, and when I've recently needed to sell a property in St Helens, I interviewed all of the agents in town and Nereda was a standout choice. Since making that choice she and her team have provided me with professionalism and service as good as any agency I have used in 20 years. They were always friendly courteous honest and proactive on all aspects of the sale, and towards the end when I was contemplating dropping the price, Nereda firmly believe believed that there was still an opportunity to get a price higher than where I had adjusted my expectations to, and she achieved this result. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nereda and her team for professional, diligent and honest service in selling your house. Darren.

I've know Nereda and Gary for many years. So, when it came time to sell, there really was little choice for us to make. LJ Hooker St Helens seems to be performing well under Nereda's guidance and Nereda and her staff were always readily available when we had a question. Nereda provided very timely feedback after every inspection and to my mind, was always accurate in her assessment of what was happening in relation to the segment of the market in St Helens that we were selling in.

Chris and Annette Stunden

We found Nereda and Kate very helpful, efficient & friendly throughout the sale process.


The buying process was very easy with great communication from Nereda. I’m sure I’ll be very happy living here for years to come.


We flew from the Gold Coat to look for a retirement home, we had viewings with five agents and out of the five we found Nereda the most helpful. She listened to what we needed and could afford and with this information showed us the perfect property. Her great service didn’t end there as she carefully helped us with the moving and settling process. I cannot recommend her enough and she is a great asset to the LJ Hooker Group. Thank you Nereda for making it all so easy & fun for us.

R & L Pemberton

Nereda was selected as out agent due to her enthusiasm, knowledge, professionalism, honesty and sheer doggedness!

D. MacGregor

Nereda is a excellent agent. My husband and I found her to be a very reliable person with an empathy for both ourselves and the vendors. Nothing was too much trouble for her. We look forward to our continuing relationship with her and her husband as Property Managers. For us they are perfect agents to deal with! Thank You, Mr Hooker.

D & H Mullins

Nereda was very pleasant to deal with and very fast in getting my property listed and online. Nereda found a buyer within a matter of days of advertising my property, which was brilliant! I couldn't have been more impressed!

C Ellis

Nereda and her team worked extremely hard to achieve a sale in what was trying circumstances. I really appreciated her down to earth, honest approach to achieve the best result for us.

C. Kershaw

The staff at LJ Hooker St Helens have been very obliging at all times. It has been a pleasure dealing with them over the last few months. Congrats to all. Thank You.

W & D Roberts

Throughout my process of dealing with LJ Hooker to sell my block I found every single agent was fantastic. I enjoyed the communication and I always knew what stage we were at and everyone had a fresh idea to put forward to get things moving. I strongly recommend LJ Hooker to everyone as the business is held at a high level of standards. Thank you to everyone and especially to you Nereda who got the block SOLD. Your extremely happy client Melissa. THANK YOU!

Melissa Simmons

After our offer was accepted Nereda willing met us on a Sunday late in the afternoon (well after 5) and even furnished us with a tape measure from her home so we could measure the property. Gave us another look through the van, amenities block etc. we sign the contract at the property and she waved us off. Nereda kept us informed (even gave us numbers of local conveyancers) all along of the process of the sale and it went so smoothly I don’t think any of us noticed it at all. Nothing was too much trouble. For that I thank Nereda. Nereda was brilliant intermediary between vendors and purchasers and helped with a smooth and efficient sale. There is nothing she could do to improve on, Nereda was wonderful. So thank you again.

K Martin & S McDermott

Nereda was terrific, from the moment we walked in saying we had a to deal with a house from a deceased estate that needed some TLC to the day it sold. She also went above and beyond by offering to be the central point of collection of the keys to access the house for tradesperson that needed to access it to improve some parts of it for sale. Once completed – and I must compliment all the wonderful people of St Helens and area who did some work – the house was only on the market for 3 days before beig sold to the first person who saw it. Some might say we had the price to low but we’re happy that it was a fair price and we’re glad the house has been purchased by someone who will love living there as much as our deceased relative did.

N & B Mersiades

We have owned properties from St Marys to St Helens over the past ten years, we have had experiences with the majority of the Real Estate offices in the Break O Day area. We entrusted our most recent property in St Helens with L.J.Hooker ( St Helens ) and Nereda Ball as Principal the management team at L.J.Hookers found tenants for our property quickly and produced to oversee our investment for some years, until we decided to sell our property, during that time the St Helens office competently managed our property and ensured we were kept informed at all times. Regular inspections were maintained. We decided to list our property for sale with Nereda and her team. We were very impressed with their sales marketing strategies and procedures a buyer was found in a short time, and all aspects of the sale were handled with the utmost professionalism. In our experience it is rare find a real estate office that exceeds in both sales and property management.

S & N DeLaunay

Thank you for your time and effort in helping us find our house. The service you provided was above all expectations. We would recommend you to anybody.

E J Walker

After 2 years of searching for the "right" home, we finally purchased one through Nereda Ball at LJ Hooker St Helens.We must say that Nereda was extremely patient, polite and professional in her dealings with us and kept us informed pf properties that we may have been interested in. The one aspect that we hold Nereda in high regard for is that she never pushed us for a sale. If we had questions about a property that we were looking at, Nereda was always responsive and went out of her way to help and find the answers.During settlement Nereda was a wealth of information and assistance for us and nothing was too much for her to help us through that process. Since settlement Nereda continues to help us in a variety of ways, for which we are extremely grateful. We were so impressed by her “can do” approach to situations that we have now engaged LJ Hookers in St Helens to manage the rental aspect of our property.We would recommend Nereda and her team to others in our situation. Without hesitation.

Adrian & Dawn Bennetts

We found the whole experience of buying a house in St Helens through L J Hooker very pleasant. It did take some years, in which we used as holidays. This is what it felt like, one big holiday, nothing was a problem and I think it was noted by us that the whole office worked as a team. Well done and many thanks to you all and thanks again Nereda, we have already new friends in Tassie.

David Hooper

Nereda made buying this block so easy and stress free. Her professionalism is to be commended.

Sue Dowling

You listened to what we were looking to buy, showed us only 3 houses of which we could have “lived in, picked house no 2. Four weeks later had the keys and moved in

Tony & Barb Garside

Graeme and Pam Spaulding would like to thank Nereda and Gary Ball and L J Hooker team for their care and help when we brought our second home with them in 6 months, they could not do enough to help us. We would recommend Nereda and team as very professional as real estate we cannot thank them enough Thanks L J Hooker

Graeme & Pam Spaulding

I am very happy with the service and friendly people I dealt with, everyone was very helpful and went out of there way to make selling and buying a pleasure for me. Many thanks to all of you all

Mrs Alice Watson

Given the very difficult circumstances both Nereda Ball did an amazing job in selling our property. I would recommend LJ Hooker St Helens to any prospective sellers and or buyers. Thank you form the bottom of my heart.

Eve Rae

Our thanks to ALL the staff at St Helens. They were professional, friendly and concerned. Always helpful, who soon become good friends.


This property was sold within two days of our first discussion with Hooker’s and then settled totally and professionally ten months later. We are extremely satisfied with all aspects of this property sale “Thankyou Mr Hooker” (Lady Nereda)

B Daly

Nereda were fabulous to deal with, we have nothing but praise for the staff at L J Hooker St Helens. After transferring the sale of our property to L J Hooker, we were continually updated on the progress of the sale and any prospects, Nereda then went above and beyond to ensure the sale of our property in a slow market. At all times the staff were available to us with no question too hard – a quality we certainly appreciated being located away from the property/township of St Helens. A big thank you to the team Hayley Kudra

Hayley Kudra

Thank You Nereda for achieving our sale in a difficult property market. Thank You Michelle for managing rental of our property with such care and professionalism. LJ Hooker continues to be my agency of choice – we will have bought and sold through Hookers in both NSW and TAS exclusively and will continue to do in the future!! OUR Agency of Choice!!

R Lawson

We finally achieved our desire to purchase and move to a property on the beautiful east coast of Tasmania partly due to the great lengths and efforts that a fantastic real estate agent, Nereda Ball went through, in order to see our dreams fulfilled. From our initial meeting, to listening to our needs, to finding and taking us to view any and every property that ticked our boxes whenever we chose, it seemed that nothing was too much for her and we the customer were paramount to her and L.J. Hooker. We feel we owe our success greatly to her efforts and all through the process Nereda attended promptly to all our needs and requests and went well beyond the call of duty to help us make that smooth transition into the Tassy lifestyle. I am so pleased to say that the service and attention did not stop even after settlement and would highly recommend Nereda and L.J. Hooker to anyone with a simular to ours. You won’t be disappointed. Nereda once again a very big big Thank You
