Helen's sales and marketing plan was exceptional and resulted in some of the highest internet search results and open inspection attendance.

F & F Barwa-Bosco

As I had previously worked for a company located next to the St Peters office, I knew of the professionalism and expertise that this office offered. I was pleased that the price suggested by Helen Galdes was above my expectations and was within the buyer expectations hence a quick sale. The staff were always timely and friendly when contacting me via Helen's instructions. Absolutely loved dealing with Helen Galdes. Would do so again, and will be recommending her to other prospective sellers/buyers.

Fred & Fil Barwa-Bosco

Helen exceeded our expectations and I don't believe any other agent could of done a better job. She is very polite and professional and helped us to renovate our house to what the purchaser wanted. Her negotiating skills were outstanding and would recommended her to everyone I know who wants to sell their house.


Helen was exceptional from start to finish. She styled our home for the target market which helped us achieve a fantastic sales outcome. Her highly interpersonal style works will not only with vendors but the buyers also. I'd recommend Helen without hesitation. 10/10

Helen Galdes obtained an excellent result for us. She was warm and encouraging, helping us to understand what needed to happen to achieve the best result. We are happy recipients of her services.

Bernard Clarke

Helen spent the time finding out what we actually wanted - then she developed a plan to get us there. She didn't just get us there though, she far exceeded our expectations. We had the option of many estate agents for our property but we made the best choice in getting Helen on our side.

Roger Hunter

John and I would like to thank you for the wonderful result you negotiated for us on the sale of our apartment in The Old Jam Factory. We were a little concerned about the market response because one of the apartments had been on offer for five months when we decided to sell. However, your enthusiasm and optimism were contagious, and when we saw the results of the photography (your choice of photographer was spot on) the apartment presented beautifully. Your eye for detail was amazing, and your advice on presentation made all the difference. In fact, when we saw the brochure, we wondered why on earth we wanted to sell! I have told anybody who wanted to listen that having you as our agent was the point of difference, and I think that anyone in the Jam Factory wishing to sell in the future should certainly come to you first. I should also add that your advice and help in negotiating our new home I also greatly appreciated. LJ Hooker has been most professional in all aspects of our business, so once again, a big thank you from both of us. Call in for coffee and a ginger biscuit whenever you’re in the area!

Lesley & John

Dear Helen Just a quick note to say thank you for restoring my faith in real-estate people. I have never before sold a property working with a consultant who really went beyond the usual limits, including organising photography when the garden was at its best instead of just before the time of selling. And talking of photography, the shots chosen for web presentation were just magical. From the start you have been friendly, helpful and professional – and have produced a result that was just perfect and far better than I had hoped for. Your suggestions on styling and presenting my home were really great and were a large part of the final result. Your trained eye saw all the things that I had ignored or not noticed and your suggestions were given 'gently' and with encouragement, never making me feel defensive. Watching you work helped me to understand how sales-craft is different from manipulation and how good your negotiation skills are - arriving at a result that makes both parties happy.


Helen Galdes is the consummate professional. At all times we received prompt and efficient service and always with a smile. Helen's confidence allowed us to relax and leave it in her very capable hands. We would recommend LJ Hooker St Peters and in particular Helen to family, friends and strangers who may be seeking help to buy or sell a home.

L Cameron

Helen has a very friendly nature, a people person. From the start she was easy to chat with, very honest and was not at all "sales pitchy". Selling my previous homes i found to be a quite stressful experience, but Helen Galdes made the entire process an enjoyable one. She is a positive person, extremely organised and her attention to detail in everything she did throughout the process got me a great price and a quick sale. I would recommend her to anyone that is wanting to sell. An all round great experience.

JB, Windsor Gardens

A sincere thank you for a stress free and successful sale. Helen demonstrated that she is efficient, thorough, informative, friendly, down to earth and yet very professional in her endeavours. Our lines of communication were always open. I was always kept updated on the progress of the sale of my house. From the moment that the Contract to sell was signed I was comfortable knowing I was in capable hands. Helen's obvious knowledge and experience regarding the Real Estate industry was always appreciated. It was indeed a pleasure to deal with someone who obviously loves her job! Again, many thanks!

Joe Larecki

We specifically chose Helen Galdes to sell our property after we bought our new home from her in Deconno Court. She made us feel like we were her clients even though she was engaged by the Vendors! We thought that if she could make any interested purchaser of our property feel the same way, that we were sure to have a successful sale quickly. Sure enough the property had a Contract of sale within a week of being advertised. Thank you Helen!

Sharon & Chris

Helen was recommended to me as a successful Sales Consultant. She lives up to her reputation and exceeded all of my expectations. She is full of vitality and enthusiasm, whilst remaining professional. Her skills as a “stylist” are well worth listening to. Be prepared to “invest” your time, energy and money by following her suggestions and you will be rewarded by the results! I have no hesitation in recommending Helen as your future Sales Consultant.

Carol Anderson

I was delighted with the results of the auction and the outstanding help and service I received from Helen Galdes for several weeks before the sale and continuing beyond it. Helen must be one of the very best agents anyone could possibly wish for. Energetic, friendly, thoughtful and kind to an elderly man, and above all extremely effective. Helen encouraged me to Auction my property and I was so glad I did, as we ended up with a fantastic result... I took a holiday overseas to celebrate. I believe LJ Hooker is very fortunate to have her as a member of staff. Best wishes

Martin Simmons

We could not have been more impressed with the service and advice received from Helen and Dennis. Our house was sold on the first open and we appreciated the honesty and integrity with which we were taken through the process of selling. We would definitely recommend LJ Hooker St Peters, Helen and Dennis in particular to manage the selling/buying of property. Thank you so much Helen and Dennis.

Bill and Lyn Ruth

I received professional, yet personalised service from Helen Galdes. I would highly recommend her services, particularly her energy, attention to detail and effective marketing that delivered results that absolutely exceeded my expectations.

Amanda Spiers

Helen Galdes right from taking my first phone call & registering my interest in a property she had for sale at Norwood to the last call on 18 March congratulating my partner and I on a successful settlement, showed a unique ability to advise, promote honestly, and be attentive to what we required and aspired to in the Norwood area. Helen’s in-depth knowledge of the area, the sales process, including conveyencing, SA requirements, building inspections, options for local trade people, and all things homely, made her an absolute delight to conduct the home buying business with. People say that buying a home is one of the most stressful of life’s events, but with Helen and LJH St Peter’s it was not only easy and stress free, it was a pleasure.

E. Keirnan

We have been dealing with LJ Hooker St Peters for a long time now and have always been happy with the service. This has been the first time with Helen as our agent. We were very pleased with her professionalism and ease with which she relates to us. Thank you Helen for your time, patience and successful outcome.
