Pleasure working with Matthew. Energetic, pro-active and easy to work with. His drive for success and closing deals is strong and in our case that worked fine as we like working with people who can move fast. I guess for the sellers he's done a good job by being pro-active and trying to get everything completed and signed asap.

Roy & Ellen

Matt is a great communicator and kept us in the loop with updates throughout the whole process. He initially showed that he had a great knowledge of real estate in the area which gave us some comfort. He gave us a realistic idea of the price we could expect and the time it would take to sell and backed that up with examples of properties that had sold and were still on the market. He gave us his opinion on the strengths and weaknesses of our property and gave honest suggestions on preparing it for sale. He clearly has a handle on the type of buyers out there as well. He explained his marketing strategies to us clearly and advised what he thought would suit our situation and budget. He discussed what would happen at different stages as possible scenarios presented themselves. He is a man with infectious energy and enthusiasm which was comforting during the sale. Matt was not just a business man. He was understanding and sympathetic after we had to postpone the sale because of a family health issue and sent us a much appreciated card and flowers. He didn't have to do that. He went above his duty offering to do little jobs we were unable to do as we lived so far away from the property. He even gave some windows a clean before an open house after a bit of rain marked them. He handled the final sale well. There needed to be some negotiation. He communicated his reasons for the different strategies he suggested we employ and clearly carried them out well. We are very satisfied with the whole process and especially with Matt, and hopefully conveyed that clearly to him when we had coffee with him at Terrigal a few days before settlement

Paul & Cheryl

We bought a property from Matthew and were very much satisfied with the way the entire transaction was handled. Matthew is very knowledgeable and professional agent who is not only representing interests of the vendor, but also helps buyers in the entire process of property purchase. We would highly recommend Matthew to others and use his services in the future

Arthur & Iryna

A very impressive young man who is professional, courteous and respectful. Matt really knows the local market, and we relied heavily on his experience and relationships with potential purchasers to sell our house quickly during what could be a quiet time (January) in the real estate market. Matt took control of the whole process, kept us informed along the way, and achieved an excellent result at our first open house. We couldn't have been more thrilled.


We had the pleasure of Matthew Farrugia guide us through the sale of our home at Terrigal. Matthew is an asset to the LJ Hooker franchise and this is demonstrated by his energy and commitment to satisfy his clients which is second to none. I would have no hesitation in recommending Matthew Farrugia to anyone that is in the market for purchasing or selling a property.


Matthew was a great communicator and kept us in the loop right through the sales process. He was keen as mustard, conscientious and on top of the local market in this estate and the Terrigal area. He did a superb job for us and we really appreciated the effort. Well done Matt!

Graham & Julie

I would recommend Matthew absolutely. All areas of the negotiation and settlement were handled expertly and personally. He is highly efficient and professional in all aspects of the sale; both pre-sale and post-sale. Matthew is by far the most helpful, qualified and professional Agent I have ever met. He goes way beyond the expectations of his job and always to the utmost of his ability. His mannerisms are extremely personal and genuine.


We would like to thank Matthew Farrugia of LJ Hooker Terrigal in selling our property so promptly; Matthew is a very presentable young man, very enthusiastic and a young man of integrity. We would recommend him highly, thank you Matthew for selling our three properties so promptly.

Kevin & Judy

Matt is a very professional, dedicated and committed agent. He took on our sale with great enthusiasm, and achieved a great sale price in a very short period of time. He communicated with us regularly, managing our expectations along the way. Nothing was a problem, and he was always available, day, night or weekend. We can't sing his praises enough.

Judi & Graham

I truly can’t recommend Matt highly enough, he has been so supportive I’m sure to both Buyer and Vendor.
