LJ Hooker and Damien Cooley contribute to a miracle

A Queensland agency has forfeited its sales commission for the auction of a high-end Hamptons-style home as part of a fundraising drive set to benefit premature and unwell babies.

LJ Hooker Pacific Pines Helensvale is selling and marketing a no-reserve auction for the Mater Little Miracles this Sunday. Leading national auctioneer Damien Cooley will handle the gavel on the day.

The ‘House for Life’ – a newly-built high-end four-bedroom home in The Surrounds community at Helensvale – was designed and delivered by Plantation Homes, with the 469sqm site donated by Villawood Properties, developer of The Surrounds.

All bedrooms boast ensuites and five designated living spaces highlight the grand design of the home.

All funds raised go to help seriously-ill and premature babies at Mater Hospital’s Neonatal Critical Care Unit (NCCU).

LJ Hooker Pacific Pines Helensvale Principal Pascal Pierre said the agency was thrilled to donate its efforts to the auction, particularly after being named LJ Hooker’s International Community Relationship Office of the Year recently.

“The House for Life initiative is another way for us to join other great companies like Plantation Homes, Villawood Properties and others in giving back to the communities that support us,” Mr Pierre said.

“The Mater Little Miracles is an important cause, giving invaluable support to Queensland families experiencing the most trying of times.

“The Helensvale area is popular amongst families with its schooling, extensive parkland and proximity to employment hubs. What the (Mater Little Miracles) cause sets out to achieve really resonates with us as a business and with our customers.”

Selling agents Brad Clarke and Siarne Loeve said the quality of the home had driven significant interest.

“We haven’t been surprised by the interest in such a quality home in a popular area,” Ms Loeve said.

“There were 332 homes that changed hands over the last year – that’s almost one new family moving into the suburb every day.”

Mr Clarke said interested people have commented on the fact that every bedroom has an ensuite, that it backs onto the park, and that it captures the Hamptons-design so genuinely.

A family-fun day is planned on-site at Laurel Drive on Sunday (September 8) at The Surrounds, with television personality and House for Life Ambassador Sam Squiers hosting a range of activities.
