I would like to thank Janet for being an honest and straightforward real estate agent. She was my real estate agent during the sale of my unit. I was overseas during the selling process, so I was not the easiest of her clients. She had to deal with working in different time zones, and knowing that some documents might only come through the next day.


Not only did she get the value she initially said she would try to get, but her valuation was higher than that of other real estate agents. When one buyer fell through, she would come through with another. It is nice to see a real estate agent who really works for the benefit of the seller and is not only worried about cashing in his/her commission.


If a deal wasn’t what I was looking for, she would support me in not taking the deal and came through with better buyers. She was patient and was incredibly responsive to any questions I had.


I am incredibly pleased with all she has done. And for this, I will always use her services when buying or selling a property. I know she has the clients best interest at hand.

We met Janet whilst inspecting a property that was for sale. We didn’t buy it but were so impressed by her enthusiasm, honesty and “can do” nature we just had to engage her services to sell our home of 27 years. We have not regretted that decision in any way. She kept us fully informed of all enquiries and utilised the internet extensively to give our property maximum exposure. At all times we felt secure as Janet was hard working, honest, straightforward & always had our best interests at heart.

Dear Janet, thank you so much for selling my house. From the minute you walked in the door, your honesty, professionalism, presentation and attention to finer details was outstanding. Your knowledge of the area and the market analysis and research you had prepared before we met was extremely helpful and from that stage I knew I had found the person I wanted to sell my house, Janet Houlihan.


Janet worked tirelessly on open homes and inspections and kept me informed at all times on what the market was saying. The marketing and photos were amazing and the “Janet Touch” helped enhance the house. Nothing was ever too much trouble.


Janet’s positive attitude and feedback and interaction with the buyers was “second to none”. A big thank you Janet for selling my house in a month and helping me move onto the next exciting stage of my life. I would thoroughly recommend Janet as The Real Estate Agent to Sell Your House …… she’s the best!

Janet Houlihan takes a refreshing approach to real estate sales. Obviously dedicated to the task at hand, she remained highly optimistic, courteous and kept the communication flowing. It seemed like only a few days had passed when she produced two potential buyers.


A gated community brings its own challenges, but Janet was able to bring many people through to inspect – so many I lost count. In the end, it was her persistence & dedication that won the contract.


So, thank you Janet, for a job well done.

Janet Houlihan of Houlihan Realty Southport was recommended to me by a friend who said “If I needed an honest reliable agent I would always choose Janet Houlihan .” Thankfully I heeded her advice and contacted Janet gave her my full details, price range and basic requirements and asked her to find me a home. Within a week Janet found me a home which had lots of potential but needed plenty of TLC. This was a project I was looking for, a good basic home in a wonderful position.


Not all sales are straightforward and that is where a true professional agent like Janet Houlihan who conducts themselves in an open honest relationship with both the vendor and buyer really excel. We confronted obstacles with a few aspects of the home which needed to be rectified before a satisfactory solution could be reached. Because of Janet’s experience in a difficult situations she worked passionately to achieve a mutually happy ending and thus a rewarding sale all round.


I found Janet Houlihan of Houlihan Realty honest in placing all the facts before myself as a buyer and the vendor extremely professional which instilled confidence that her priority was to achieve a happy outcome for all parties concerned. This is the difference between an agent and a professional honest agent who stakes their reputation on growing their business on repeat sales and recommendations from happy satisfied customers.


I would personally recommend Janet Houlihan to my family, friends and acquaintances as a person who is trustworthy, reliable, honest and who conducts herself and her business in a very professional manner.

We gave Janet strict instructions to sell our house while we were away on holidays! Janet promised that she would. We left on 1 January and returned on the 16th. This was the quietest of times for sales with every one away on their annual holidays.

Janet tirelessly held open homes on the weekends and private inspections at request, making sure our gardens and alfresco areas were pristine. Keeping us informed every step of the way by text, email and phone calls while we were in Darwin.


We returned late on the 16th and lo and behold Janet rings on the 17th and says “Can I pop around, I have a contract for you!!!!” Imagine our surprise and delight. Not only did Janet keep her promise and sell the house but she also managed to get a very good price.


Nearly everyone in Riverside Estate knows Janet and knows how hard she works to make a sale that is both satisfactory to the vendor and the buyer. Thank you Janet, I am almost over the shock of how quickly you sold the house.

But just as important was her enthusiasm and extensive knowledge of the market, plus the sheer hard work that Janet put in on our behalf. Janet is an agent who really works for her client – with great communication skills, she kept us up to date on progress every step of the way. The advice and help she provided was invaluable.

Janet is the hardest working agent we have ever dealt with. The information she presented to us on the current real estate market in our area helped us to make decisions that resulted in the quick sale of our property at a great price. Janet went beyond what we expected of an agent, showing potential clients through at short notice and she always had our best interest as a priority. She followed up on all potential leads and regularly communicated all details to us so we were fully informed of what was happening. We were so happy with the service provided by Janet and Houlihan Realty that we have engaged them for both the sale of our property and the purchase of our next property. Thanks so much Janet.

Hi Janet, Margaret and I would like to thank you for the sale of our property at Quay South, Emerald Lakes. Years ago we had a fridge magnet that used to look at us 24/7 not thinking that one day we would have need to call on Janet to sell our property. Some months ago when we decided that it was time to sell, a timely letterbox drop from Janet jogged our memory about the fridge magnet. We contacted Janet and just three weeks later our property was sold!!!!! Amazing!!!!!


Janet instilled confidence in us and always believed that the price she set was attainable although we had a slight doubt. She said “ leave that to me that’s my job“ and sure enough she delivered!!!!!


Janet has this amazing ability to be a friend, property manager, confidant and most of all has the utmost integrity and honesty when dealing with people from both sides of the sale. We have no hesitation in recommending Janet Houlihan to any person wishing to sell their property.

When unforeseen circumstances necessitated the sale of my Mother’s property earlier this year, Mum insisted Janet Houlihan be the agent, and I’m very glad she did. Janet not only worked tirelessly to gain the best price for the property but also gave just that bit extra. Knowing the impossible task I faced being in Perth and attempting to ready a house in Qld for sale, Janet suggested cleaners, painters and gardeners she knew from experience, to be trustworthy and thorough, and her recommendations that this work should be undertaken, definitely added value.


Throughout the entire process, Janet kept me informed and up to date. I knew when the house was open for viewing, how many people had been through and whether anyone had shown any real interest. All in all, Janet’s knowledge, professionalism and expertise definitely made what could have easily been a stressful, frustrating experience into one of relative ease, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her as an estate agent to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property.

Dear Janet. It is with utmost gratitude that I write this e mail. You have been so professional, understanding and your tenacity and positivity through a process that was quite up and down for us, has been remarkable. I can honestly say that we would not have secured the home we really felt was right for us without your guidance, negotiation and integrity.


For anyone reading this, buyer or seller, I have been in various sides of real estate for over 20 years and have only ever met two real estate agents in this time equal to Janet’s calibre. (It’s not surprising she opted for her own business).


I am more than happy to recommend Houlihan Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell, across the entire residential spectrum. Houlihan Realty strive for a win:win without games playing. That’s what we all really want and Janet gets that.
