I would highly recommend using Colin Balcam's services. His local knowledge and contacts were invaluable. When I decided to sell my property, he already had a buyer in mind and within a week my property was sold, for exactly the figure I wanted. I am extremely happy with Colin and all the team at LJ Hooker Swan Hill. Thank you!

Ross, Canberra

I would recommend Colin Balcam, to any one who is considering selling there property or wishing to buy a property, I found him very helpful and considerate to our needs.

Breeta Taylor Nyah vic.

Colin was always very helpful and although he admitted that he had never sold a property in our area previously, he was accurate with the estimated sale price and already had prospective buyers on his books who may have been interested. Our property sold to the first buyers to view and although there were finance difficulties, the sale proceeded as we hoped. Colin is a very good real estate salesman. We always felt important and well advised as to the sale process. If we were going to buy a replacement home in the local area, we would have asked Colin to find us a suitable new property.

Chris Beard, Benjeroop

Colin has sold previous properties for me over and once your property is listed he uses his little back book to find prospective buyers. He is professional and attention to detail

Kayelene Warburton

Colin was very approachable about all aspects of the sale. He is down to earth and delivers on promises. He can be trusted and I would recommend him for any real estate sales.

Stuart Holt Swan Hill

Colin went above and beyond when we purchased our property - he backed our integrity and secured the purchase, subject to sale of our home and trust in us. It wouldn't have had the result it did if he didn't do this. I then never doubted that he should have the sale of our existing home.

Melinda, Swan Hill

Thank you Colin for selling our house in a timely and efficient fashion.


A1 service from start to finish, very,very happy with Colin.

Susan Ingram

Its easy to see why the local L J Hooker is so successful when you watch Colin Balcom at work. He's the original old style professional who notices all the details. He turns up early to make sure the lights are on and nothing left laying around. He's got the ideas needed to present the property in the best possible light. He's the 1percent man who knows that little bit extra that gets you over the line. Equally important is the fact that Colin is working for you, the vendor. There's no quick price drops to get a quick sale. He holds out for what your home is worth. So in my opinion, if you want to sell in Swan Hill, you need to ring L J Hooker and all for Colin Balcom.

Ian Nanson, Swan Hill

Colin Balcam sold my home in 4 days. he was knowledgeable about the local market and was always available to take my call throughout the entire process, right up to the settlement day. Could not have been more helpful and understanding.

Jan Murphy Swan Hill

Our first meeting with Colin was positive and he showed a genuine respect for our property. We chose Colin because we felt he had established a fine reputation in Swan Hill and his experience would enable us to sell our house at the price we would have liked. However, we did find the sale of our property slow with very little interest shown by prospective buyers, but that was probably a culmination of many factors out of Colin's control and consequently we had little or no bargaining power. Colin was always willing to consider our concerns and was always available by phone which was appreciated. Overall we achieved a satisfactory outcome considering the current climate in Swan Hill.

Beverley Mackenzie, Big Hill, Lorne.

Have dealt with Colin Balcam in the past and will again should the opportunity arise, we find him professional and keeps you in the loop at all times.

Peter Pickering Swan Hill

I hadn't had any experience selling before and Colin/LJ Hooker made it easy. They kept me updated the whole time. Contracts were e-mailed to be which was great as I was living a few hours away. I was also given a fair price for the services. Basically everything was handled very professionally and I recommend Colin/LJ Hooker for anyone buying or selling, they really did make the process easy.

James Cloke, Ballarat

Colin Balcam worked extremely hard to achieve this sale. Of course we would have liked more money but due to age and condition of home we think we got value for money. Colin was very considerate of my mother age and condition when he took clients through the home.

Nuccia McLean Hamlyn Heights.

Thank you very much Colin for all your assistance during the sales process, especially given I was not in Swan Hill at the time. You took care of everything and made the process unbelievably simple. I would highly recommend yourself to anyone in or around Swan Hill looking to buy or sell.

Nicola Lehmann, Echuca

Colin Balcam has always been regarded as one of Swan Hill's trustworthy, honest, and reliable real estate agents. He is a man of integrity. He has certainly gone the extra hundred miles in selling our property. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with him and the staff at L J Hooker in Swan Hill. This testimonial is not only for our recent property sale but for years of professional service with other property sales and real estate advice. I would highly recommend Colin Balcam and L J Hooker to anyone wishing to buy or sell property in the Swan Hill and surrounding districts.
