Steve coming on board gives LJ Hooker yet another long term Gympie person in the team, with 3 generations of the family name coming from Gympie, and a long list of local owned businesses attached to the name "Ricketts".
As an accomplished retail salesperson for 20+ years, Steve prides himself with qualities such as perseverance, negotiation, and communication skills. Today, as a real estate professional, he is bringing those same skills and talents to an equally broad spectrum of discriminating clients. A focused listener, able advisor and fierce yet fair advocate, Steve is known for his intuition and diligence while employing encouragement and genuine concern, as he creates a positive experience for both sides in any property transaction. His business approach is enthusiastic, direct and successful: he listens to the client's needs and matches them to the right property, then assures an honest and efficient transaction. Steve's mantra, "to be in touch and stay in touch", is the key to his long-term relationships with his clients. Being with his beautiful wife Sonya for the past 27 years, he regards this relationship as one of his most successful life accomplishments. Both Steve and Sonya love food and cooking and enjoy entertaining good friends at their 1895 renovated Queenslander that has been in his family for 3 generations.
