Travis McConnell

Manager & Sales

I was born on the Lower Clarence and have lived in Maclean and surrounding suburbs for all of my life. I started in Real Estate back in 2000 as a property manager for L J Hooker Yamba, and after two years learning the basics, I progressed to sales at L J Hooker Maclean. I was privileged to work under a very experienced team of successful salesman and women and to this day still work with the majority of that initial team. I have enjoyed my long term working life with L J Hooker Maclean and believe that the high quality real estate service distinguished by its honesty, integrity and professionalism are the focus for me to provide a service second to none.

As a qualified practicing auctioneer, I regularly volunteer my auctioneer services for local fund raising and community events; lately we raised $25,000 for the Maclean Hospital Auxiliary Art Auction.

Externally from work I enjoy fishing on the Clarence River, riding my beloved motorbike and spending time with my family, life’s pretty good on the Lower Clarence.

Trav McConnell has been beyond amazing to deal with! We just purchased our dream home through him and from beginning to end he was nothing short of professional, polite, efficient and a true gentleman! Cannot speak highly enough of him and the entire Maclean LJ Hooker team! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Travis McConnell was aware of the background of this rental property (which LJ Hooker managed for about 18 years) and the needs of the owner. He was the best person to manage the sale of the property. I no longer live in the area and so I am not sure about the details of local advertising or signboarding. However Travis kept in touch with me by phone re inspections and possible purchasers. He is an excellent communicator so I was kept aware of the progress of the sale at all times. It was a comfort to know that I was dealing with a good, trustworthy man.

I have used the services of LJ Hooker Maclean and Travis McConnell for a number of years now. They are thorough professionals, friendly, honest and very approachable. In my opinion they also have local market knowledge superior to any other agency in the area. I would have no hesitation in recomending Travis and the LJ Hooker Maclean team to sell your property. Look forward to continuing our association in the years to come. Yours Sincerely, Matt Dougherty

Dear Travis, As you well aware the sale/ purchase of a dwelling is a traumatic experience. And when that sale is not quite by one's own wishes it is even more so. Betsy's family sought the assistance of you and the staff at L J Hooker Maclean to Betsy's home at Chatsworth and sell it you did. Betsy's daughters and I could not have been more pleased with the manner that you, Grant, Ken, Tracy and all the other staff looked after us. The advice provided to us re pricing, method of sale, tactics and the like was spot on. The house sold with 2 weeks of being placed on the market. This action eased the lives of all involved. There are those who may say the price was too low. But our opinion is that we were provided with accurate, local advice supported by history in the area and we achieved what we needed to when we needed to and from all parties perspective done very professionally. We would have no hesitation in recommending the services of L J Hooker Maclean to any prospective client. Again our thanks, please pass on our appreciation to all involved. Best Regards Dennis O'Sullivan on behalf of the Kratz Family.

To Whom It May Concern, I have personally known Mr Travis McConnell, of L J Hooker Maclean for the past 10 years. He is a person of undoubted integrity held in high esteem in our local community, at times doing charity auctions assisting their fund raising programs. During the last 10 years I have purchased with his assistance and expertise two residential dwellings, one being our investment home selling during an Auction campaign. His skills as an Auctioneer and the presentation from the team within his office were of the highest standards. The property was extensively marketed between Grafton and Tweed Heads, we were informed at all times with proceedings, the result being a favourable sale. I have no hesitations in recommending Travis for any Real Estate dealing and hop to use the team at L J Hooker Maclean in the future. “Thank You Mr Hooker” Regards Mark Pickard JP 107783

Dear Travis, This is but a brief note to sincerely thank you for your assistance and cooperation with our purchase of 33 Middle Street, Woombah. Purchasing from a distance, and with the added complications associated with the sale of our previous home, made for a difficult scenario but your willingness to help us at all stages of the purchase made for a smooth transition. No doubt we will maintain contact as we wander the streets of Maclean... or even elsewhere. Your s Sincerely, Bob & Penne Carr

Dear Travis, Just a note to say a BIG "Thank You" to you & the team at L J Hooker in Maclean. We were more than happy with the outcome of our recent auction. The moment we first walked into your office (& it was the temporary one!!), we felt at ease. Your professionalism is outstanding & the very friendly manner in which you approach your clients must be congratulated. In the last year, we have brought & sold 4 properties & we have to say your office was the best of all the others. Sorry that this letter was a bit late, but we haven't forgotten you & the wonderful work that you have done for us. Well done, & Thank You. Judie & Eoin McSwan.

Travis provided exactly the type of service required to seel my block. I did not live in the region however his input and communication was terrific. I would use him again for a sale of any kind.
