Nico Dowding

Marketing and Community Liaison Manager

Nico has been in the real estate industry since November 2011 and has a lot of passion for what she does. She started with the company initially as a receptionist, where she then moved into the role of assistant property manager. Nico went on to gain her Property Manager qualification and commenced the role as a Leasing Agent to form the leasing department within the office.

The ‘Top Leasing Agent’ for LJ Hooker Western Australia was awarded for the November 2015 quarterly awards which is a fantastic achievement and a compliment to her as she progresses within the business.

After over 3 years of solidifying this role, Nico has since moved into one of the most important roles in our team, Business Development Manager. She has practical knowledge of the Real Estate industry and understands the importance of long-term sustainable growth. Nico works closely with our Senior Business Development Manager Clare, who has had years of hands on experience.

Her attention to detail and high level of service skills is a credit to her, she takes pride in her communication and knowledge in the marketplace. With high responsibility, she is very driven and is always willing to go above, her dedication exceeds expectations. The Rookie of the Year for LJ Hooker Western Australia 2015 – 2016 was awarded to Nico at the WA NOTS LJ Hooker Awards night 2016. She has also since been nominated for the National LJ Hooker Summit 2016 for the International Talent Award!

Nico is currently completing her Sales Representative qualification as she has an interest in expanding her knowledge in all aspects of a Real Estate business, so that she can provide the best service for our clients.

Mr N & Mrs A-M Pretorius

I would like to thank the Team at LJ Hooker Rockingham for their dedication and personal approach as managers to my property. Jadye, Nico, Casey & Ash have been extremely professional with their approach and attention to detail with my property, treating it as if it were their own. Jayde & Nico’s communication was excellent, and, in my opinion, they went above and beyond in keeping me 'up to date' and ‘on track’ with requirements and needs to get my property on the rental market and especially living in Melbourne I know, and can trust that my property is in safe hands. I can confidently recommend LJ Hooker Property Management Team to anyone and again would like to extend my sincere gratitude for all their help.

Nico has been very professional in all of her dealings with us. We are particularly impressed the prompt feedback and communication, which is both personable, efficient, and helpful. Thank you Nico!

Not sure there is one word that sums up the service that we have been provided by Nico. Amazing, consistent, friendly, caring and exceptional all spring to mind. From the moment we first spoke with Nico, she has been a shining example of what a great real estate agent should be. Her knowledge and guidance has been invaluable and she helped navigate a highly stressful situation to achieve a great outcome for us as property owners. Good customer service is hard to come by, amazing customer service, even harder. But for Nico, it is in her DNA and I could not recommend her services more highly.

As property owners disgruntled with our previous property management team Nico has opened our eyes to how property should be managed and how we should be consistently communicated with. We reside over 400 kilometres from our rental property which is situated within 15kms of LJ Hooker. We rely heavily on our management team to have sound processes in place, oversee our investment, report regularly to us and be trustworthy and approachable. Nico exemplifies all of this.

Mr B R & Mrs C A Appleby

Nico helped us fulfill our dream to move into the house we wanted as a newlywed couple. We just fell in love with that retro house and its perfect location. We knew there were many applications for that rental and we were a bit worried about how LJ HOOKER would deal with so many applications. Nico handled the whole process like a very professional person. She contacted us many times when she was doing the references check and made sure we could provide all the documents required to ensure our application will have the same chances as any other applicants, to be accepted by the owner. She really took our case seriously and took in consideration our expectations and our eager to get accepted by the owner. She always returned our calls and our emails and she managed to get the whole process done in a very short time. We would highly recommend Nico to anyone who may have to hire LJ Hooker's services.


Hi Nico, Thank you very much. I am really impressed with the service I have received from you so far. I appreciated the communication via email and telephonically letting me know exactly what is happening with the leasing process. I am also impressed that you managed to get a tenant in less than 1 week. I think this happen due to the good advice you gave us in regards to the marketing and photos. Regards

Aida Sfetsos
