Grant Neilson

Sales & Marketing

Grant Neilson moved to the Lower Clarence area in 1992 and is now a leading salesperson for L J Hooker Maclean after commencing work for us in February 2005.

Grants various professional employment prior to his time with us ensured that he brings with him many qualities. Behind him he has 14 years with Telstra in managerial, marketing and project manager roles before working locally in the finance industry as a mortgage broker, which fortuitously brought him into contact with our office. His approach impressed us so much we decided to offer him a position. Basically Grant has gone from financing property purchases to selling the properties. “It just seems like a natural progression for me moving from finance to real estate and I am really thrilled for connecting my buyers and sellers needs to create business” Grant said.

Having lived in the Lower Clarence for 20 years and growing Grant has a vast knowledge of the local area. He has been heavily involved with the Maclean Bobcats Soccer Club as a player, coach and administrator and that still continues today. A bit of a sporting fanatic he also enjoys his surfing where he is heavily involved with Angourie Boardriders Club along with a social game of golf and cricket. He is also a family man, married to Kylie with three children Bree, Asher and Zane.

What Grant brings to the team is a definite enthusiasm towards the job. Knowledge of the financial side of the process is a definite asset and due to this Grant really enjoys assisting the first home buyer in understanding the daunting prospect of buying their first home. The grounding he received in finance broking also showed him how to service the vendor and cites that “regular contact with my clients is the most important aspect in building trust and keeping people informed”. He also recognises that selling and buying property can be a very stressful thing and whilst always the utmost professional he also likes to take some of the pressure off by bringing a laugh along with him to lighten the load. “You always need to keep your sense of humour” is a slogan Grant lives by.

So if you are thinking of buying or selling your property as always think L J Hooker, the market leader, and contact Grant Neilson regarding all your property needs.

Extremely professional in all areas. Especially his interest and write up of the advertising material.

Les McPherson Ashby Heights

Grant was very personable and efficient Treated you like a friend when dealing with us Grant was very respectfull of our needs

Dianne Moogan ILuka

Grant was very easy to deal with throughout the entire sale of our property. There were some difficult times through the course of the sale but Grant dealt expertly with them. Quite a genuine person.

Heulwen & David Carroll, Maclean

In the past I had contacted two other agencies (both of female gender) for an expression of interest in selling this rural property. In the conversations, interest was shown but neither came up with an appraisal. It seems as if they like to sell houses in suburbia, rural is too hard. Another agency I contacted (male gender) seemed more interested in wiggling the highest commission from me, not interested in any property details. Grant wanted all details and visited prior to commission talk. He came in with the lowest commission anyway! Following an online advertising campaign, there were numerous expressions of interest from potential purchasers. Grant instituted a "first up with the money can buy" policy which worked a treat! All the potential purchasers were treated with equality, their failure in buying the property was due to bank funding issues. There were many disappointed "would be" purchasers who did not win the race but all was clear from the beginning so no malice can be held about myself or Grant (or LJH for that matter). Best I have experienced in the valley (I have had property here since 1992). I will be selling another property in Ashby that I also own in the "not so distant future". I will be using LJ Hooker Maclean when the need rises.

Harvey and Karen Spicer

Grant understood what we were looking for as vendors. He had the local understanding, and contacts in the current market we needed. Our sale was fast and painless. Exactly as planned with Grant. We have not been in the Maclean area for some time, but will be seeking out Grant the next time we are, just to say thank you in person!! (Read, buy him a beer). Thanks Grant Neilson.

Sam & Tanya, Dampier WA

Grant was approachable and understood my needs in terms of a quick turn-around for the sale of my property. Grant provided me with timely feedback on prospective buyers and then followed up with the successful purchaser to ensure things were on track for settlement which was reassuring for me as the seller.

Sonia, Gulmarrad

I found that Grant Neilson presented and advertised the houses for sale in the best possible way. Dealing with Grant was a very satisfying experience. He was able to keep me informed every step of the negotiation and sale completion , instilling me with confidence in his professionalism, enabling me to be assured that any challenges would be taken care of promptly.
