A couple who appraised and then sold their investment property with LJ Hooker, has taken home $25,000 in cash and a one-on-one design session with The Block judge, Darren Palmer.

The prize was part of a competition offered by LJ Hooker from January 1 to March 31, which encouraged tens of thousands of home owners to contact their local LJ Hooker office to find out what their home or investment property was worth.


Lien Cam Tam and Binh An Tam contacted LJ Hooker Sunnybank Hills to appraise their property. Excited by the feedback they received, they listed their property a week later, with it selling under the hammer at auction.

The Tams received their prize from LJ Hooker recently, and are already planning to put Darren’s expert eye to the test when he travels to meet them in Brisbane.

“It’s been a very busy four weeks for us, from having the home appraised and then selling at auction – we haven’t had time to sit down and think about what we’re going to do with the money,’’ said Mrs Tam.

“We were very surprised when we got the phone call that we had won – I’ve never won anything in my life.

“We’re really looking forward to meeting Darren. We’ve seen him on The Block and we’re excited to see what ideas he has for our other rental property.’’

The chance to pick the brain of one of Australia’s high profile interior designers and spend $25,000 any way they choose was a tremendous enticement for property owners during the competition period.

But with the property market dominating discussions from barbecues to boardrooms across Australia, the huge spike in requests for appraisals was also a result of owners simply wanting to find out from an expert agent what their home or rental property was worth. will soon be providing subscribers with a behind the scenes look at Darren’s visit to the Tams’ Brisbane home, displaying the styling tips that have made him one of Australia’s most sought after interior designers.
