Michelle Jay

Sales Agent & Senior Property Manager

Beginning her real estate Career with L. J. Hooker Berri in 1996, Michelle was ideally suited.

Her whole career has been about communication and people!

'Many of my landlords and tenants have become good friends over the years ... The essence of life is enjoying time with people and sharing / creating experiences.'

‘My experiences have developed in me a skill set of dealing with difficult situations and handling each situation to a satisfactory win/win for all. I have cultivated a strong mindset of providing excellent customer service which retains customers for life. I am passionate about that.’

Michelle is well known throughout the Riverland and qualified in all facets of real estate, holding a Diploma of Business (Real Estate Management) for more than 10 years.

To guide and explain the procedure including new legislation and keeping people informed all the way to placing sold on their own property is such a 'joy’ says Michelle.

Previous to real estate Michelle did a short stint with State Government in the coordination, promoting and planning of a Main Street commercial redevelopment and earlier - 16 years with the national broadcaster, the ABC, as a presenter, news reader and working closely with a wide cross-section of the community.

'Outside of work I am a mother and have a daughter who was schooled in the Riverland and is now forging her own career in medical research. I believe in strong family values.

For relaxation I adore gardening, enjoy walking and occasional cycling, love mixing with people from different cultural and religious background to deepen an appreciation of foods and lifestyle.’ says Michelle.

Michelle’s mantra could easily be…Customers for life, friendships for life. Call her today for exceptional service and excellent outcomes.

I found Michelle honest and up front in all aspects from first contact, all through the sale process and up to the time of settlement. Michelle made herself available to speak to regarding any issues at any time even after hours. Michelle was very easy to talk to and nothing was to much trouble for her, which made the process of selling less of a trauma for me as I was having knee surgery during this process. Well done Michelle, I certainly will be recommending her to any one else thinking of selling.

Michelle was 100% professional in our dealings with her when we purchased an investment unit in Berri. We couldnt fault her processes at all, and we appreciated the way we were treated, in an understanding and communicative way. Patient and respectful, knowledgeable and trustworthy. We feel similarly about the office itself too and we wont hesitate to recommend Michelle and LJ Hooker Berri to any of our friends and family.

we are very happy with the way Michelle Jay performed her duties for us and L.J.Hookers Berri during the sale of our property at 6 Tanko st Loxton

Deidra and Keith Gray

We are so appreciative of Michelle for finding our dream property. Before it was even listed Michelle let us know it was coming up. Michelle negotiated with the Seller on our behalf and we had an excellent result. Michelle then proceeded to manage our property and find excellent tenants for it until we could come down from Darwin and live in the main residence. Our second residence on the property is still managed by Michelle and we are very thankful of Michelles professionalism, hard work and personal interest on our behalf. #bestever!!
