What our customers say

See all

I have recently bought a home in Kallangur. Grant Darbyshire worked tirelessly to liaise with the sellers and to communicate with me as the buyer. The negotiations were protracted. At all times Grant was keen to support and communicate and be carefully appropriate. His support in this process was invaluable. I would recommend Grant for his expertise, compassion, and patience. I felt well served and am now the happy owner of a unique property.

Bruce Sligo

Grant had assisted with a purchase several years ago and was so helpful that I had no hesitation in using his services to sell my home. He listened and understood my situation. He was contactable and knowledgeable. I received what I needed to sell my home. You will not be disappointed if you use Grant with any real estate business.

Karen Hamilton, Kallangur

From the start Grant was extremely helpful, organising quotes for work we needed to have done pre-sale before we had even signed with him. As we live in NZ we relied on Grant to co-ordinate the various trades people required to complete the work (painting, carpet laying, exterior plaster repairs, plumbing, window treatments) and he kept us well informed every step of the way. His communication, by both email and phone, was outstanding. His pricing recommendation was fair and accurate, and meant we achieved a quick sale which was something we had said was important for us. He clearly enjoys working for L J Hooker and often said how they work as a team for the good of their clients, rather than striving for individual gain. We would highly recommend Grant Darbyshire to anyone wanting to sell their property.

Ross and Lynne Gunn, Murrumba Downs

It was a pleasure dealing with Grant for my recent house sale. His local knowledge is impeccable. He was lovely to deal, laid back - no high-pressure sales spiel which I appreciated. I put my faith in Grant to get me the price I was after and he delivered. I highly recommend Grant.

Karyn Bradford, Murrumba Downs

Grant Darbyshire was referred to us by friends that sold in our street and didn’t let us down. He knew that we were happy to not sell if we didn’t achieve our price we wanted and he went out and got us that price with a signed contract in 5 days. Our house presented really well but Grant was the cherry on the top. Would definitely recommend him and the team from LJ hooker.

Oliver and Carrieann

Grant was my Agent when I purchased my property, and I thought to myself, if ever I need an Agent again, or I am asked to recommend someone, it would be Grant. Hence 17 years later, Grant sold my property for me, making sure I got a price that was what I wanted, but it is Grant's knowledge, and his compassion for what he does, and you as the client, is his prime concern. He makes it all stress free for any buyer or seller. Grant's integrity and honesty are of a very high standard. Once you have engaged Grant to help you with buying or selling real estate, you will be very satisfied.


Grant is a pleasure to work with and extremely knowledgeable about the area. This is the second time we have used him the reason being we were so impressed the first time. We would not hesitate to use him again or refer him to others.

Steven and Aimee

It was an relatively easy experience having Grant move my property. Thank you

Shaun Goldsmith

Julie and I would like to sincerely thank Grant for achieving the successful sale of our home. Right from our first meeting we felt we could trust you to work for us and achieve the best result possible and this you did. You kept us informed through the entire process and returned our calls promptly. You understood our needs and what we were aiming for and you set about this in a very professional manner. Grant we have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wishing to sell or buy a house. Many thanks.

Keith and Julie Gladwin

At all stages of the process to sell our home, from the initial discussions, through the marketing (including a number of open houses), to the final negotiations and sale Grant put in 100% effort on our behalf.

Ken Gluch

I have had dealings with Grant on a professional level since 1998 when I purchased my current principle residence. I had no hesitation in engaging Grant to sell my property in 2016 as he has a wealth of local real estate knowledge, large network and a great communicator. Grant managed to sell my property within two days for a record price for our estate. I have had many dealings with Grant over the years and I have no hesitation in recommending him when it comes to Real Estate.

Craig & Elizabeth Knight

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Grant upon the purchase of our first property. Grant shared with us extensive knowledge about the property and local area, as well as communicating with us (and following up) on an ongoing basis. We held great confidence in Grant due to his professionalism, honesty and amicable nature. We appreciate all of the handwork that Grant has done for us.


I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for your professional, diligent and expert advice in selling me the property at Murrumba Downs. Of all the Real Estate Agents I have worked with you have been the most thorough in dealing with all aspects of the sale, from the initial discussion all the way through post the sale and through to settlement. Above all you have been honest and delivered on all the aspects of the sale that you committed to, so I thank you for your professionalism and would have no hesitation in recommending you. All the best.

Peter Colosimo

My association with Grant has been very positive. He has the ability to connect with buyers and keep vendors advised on progress. I have no hesitation in recommending Grant as a property agent.

Eric Oxenford - Director Alma Properties Pty Ltd

Peter and I would like to thank you for your assistance during the recent sale of our home. You were efficient, respectful, and really listened to our ideas of what we wanted to do. You presented all the possible ways of listing and helped us choose what was right for us. The professional photos you recommended were invaluable in achieving a quick sale. We chose you to list our house because of the great service you offered us when we were looking to purchase a house 11 years ago, and our faith in you has been rewarded. We have no hesitation in recommending you to all. With thanks

Anna & Peter Becker

Carol and I would like to say how happy we were with your very professional service in selling our property. From the time we first listed our property until it sold, which was exceptionally quick, we knew we had the right person on the job. You took a lot of the stress out of selling our property and we are now looking forward to our move to our new home. Thank you for having the same amount of enthusiasm in getting our property sold as we did.

Les and Carol Robertson

Thanks to Grant's approachable personality and honesty we have once again used him to sell our house. His enthusiasm and desire to assist when called upon only makes the selling and buying process much easier. It also limits the amount of stress one feels at this time. Grant returns calls at his earliest convenience to one's surprise when he was supposed to be on holidays. We have no hesitation in recommending Grant to assist in buying or selling your house. Thanks Grant.

Dr Gregg Nowell

My thanks to Grant for helping me sell my investment property in Kallangur. Grant was very helpful and responsive from the outset. His straight forward and no-nonsense approach was very refreshing. I felt well informed throughout the process and we managed to get a sale within two weeks of listing. Grant understood my expectations quickly and he definitely delivered. I have no hesitation in recommending Grant if you are considering selling your home.

Brett Somers

Rob and I wanted to thank you for your effort in selling our house at Alexander Avenue. We always found you very friendly but professional and honest. You kept us informed after every inspection and always called before making changes. We will be happy to recommend you to others in the future.

Rob and Deborah Kift

We would like to thank you for making the process of buying our new home and selling our old home easy without a lot of the stress. Your helpful advice and guidance and chats when we needed them was really appreciated. Thank you again.

Jeff and Chris Geritz

Many thanks Grant and the staff at LJ Hooker Kallangur for looking after my interests so well and selling my property so quickly. It is really appreciated.

Ellen Parr

We have known Grant since our first purchase in the local area in 1998 where Grant was great in helping us achieve our dream. After the sale Grant continued to remain in contact with us and not only want to understand our needs but understand us as a growing family. In 2003 we listed our house with Grant because we respected and trusted him for his knowledge and standing within the area and whilst on a Christmas holiday Grant sold our house. Again he did not just drop it there, whilst we where away and knowing us now for over 5yrs, Grant took to finding us an upgrade in a property. On our return he worked tirelessly to show us houses that we had found and then he asked to take us to one he had found, little to say we bought it. Grant just knew what we wanted and that's what you want from a great real estate agent. In 2010 we needed to expand and again, we searched high and low whilst Grant sold our 2nd house and again he asked to show us one he knew about in the area and again he succeeded in finding us another house. Grant is an exceptional Real Estate, a great guy and a very well respected and trusted member of the community. We will use Grant time and time again without any hesitation.

Brent Wright

Adam and I would like to thank you for everything you did for us during the process of buying our first home! We are very happy with our purchase and wouldn't of been able to get there without your help. We would also like to thank the team at L J Hooker Kallangur for their professional service every time we came into the store or spoke over the phone. Thank you for the little goody bag too! This was a nice surprise.

Adam and Jasmine Ross

We have much pleasure in providing a testimonial for Grant Darbyshire. We recently decided to downsize and engaged Grant to market and sell our house in Murrumba Downs , and assist us in finding another residence. Grant met with us a couple of times to understand our needs & during this time he got to understand what we wanted in a new property and also that we wanted to sell with a minimum of fuss (no major disruptions to daily routines etc). Grant was a thorough professional and quickly gained an understanding of our requirements. He was able to quickly find a property that we promptly fell in love with. We then had to move quickly to sell our house. Grant arranged a viewing with a minimum of fuss and within the week we had contracts signed on our house , and on our new house. Everything went very smoothly. Grant kept us informed all the way. We are very happy with the results of our move and we would highly recommend Grant to anyone that is looking for a professional and (not too pushy) sales professional.
