By Sarah Dickson on Dec 20 2017


LJ Hooker continues to strengthen its recruitment division, appointing one of the country’s top business development specialists to its national team.

Jerome Smith, who also has an extensive background in business coaching, joined this
month to support LJ Hooker’s growth strategy with a national remit. 

LJ Hooker Head of Business Development, Ben Mitchell, welcomed Mr Smith at a juncture
when the brand was welcoming new offices across the breadth of markets. 

"The brand’s vision and franchise offering is resonating with business owners across
Australia," said Mr Mitchell. "LJ Hooker introduced a dozen new offices to the network
through the peak spring selling season and we have a strong pipeline as we move into the
New Year. 

"Having Jerome join our team allows us to better service the interest in LJ Hooker; where
we’re taking the brand and our network of business owners. 

"His background in business coaching and market knowledge also gives him a deep
understanding of what makes a successful agency and the support needed for business
owners from a franchisor level."

Mr Mitchell said Mr Smith’s decision to contribute to LJ Hooker's growth strategy was
encouraging for the Corporate team. 

"When a recruitment specialist of Jerome’s calibre recognises the opportunity to be part of
LJ Hooker’s 2020 growth strategy, it reinforces the value and depth of our offering."   

Mr Smith said LJ Hooker’s an iconic brand, which continues to set new standards in offline
real estate services while breaking new ground online, is future proofing its business owners
amongst a shifting digital landscape. 

"The chance to work with business owners to elevate their current and future operations with
the LJ Hooker brand was simply too good to pass up."

Mr Smith has joined LJ Hooker from Ray White, where he was Network Development
Manager and senior auctioneer.
