David Hipworth


The LJ Hooker Karratha Franchise was established in 1992 by Yvonne Crofts (Principal) & James Woolfrey. In 1993 James relocated to Perth with his family and Yvonne purchased his shareholding. The business then continued to grow under Yvonne's leadership and in 1997 she purchased the present site in Balmoral Road that we operate from. In 1991 David Hipworth joined the sales team staying until 1994 before leaving to operate family business ventures. In 2001 David received his Triennial Certificate and rejoined the Team as the Sales Director in January 2002, and was appointed the Triennial Manager. Later in 2002 Yvonne left for a well earned break and David assumed overall control of the Agency and its Clientele. In 2004 he entered into a partnership with Yvonne which saw him take the reins as the Sole Proprietor in July of 2006.Over the years the Agency has developed a reputation second to none for honest real estate transactions delivered with integrity and peace of mind, over the years both Yvonne and David have built the portfolio of Clients and Properties to one that has seen us awarded the Number 1 position for property management throughout the LJ Hooker Network twice in the last three years. Thru time real estate has changed and re morphed itself into different spheres including buyers agents, relocation offices and internet offices to name a few rising occupancies. Thru all this LJ Hooker Karratha has likewise moved and forged ahead in anticipation of being there when a new market emerges or an existing one rejuvenates itself. And whilst sometimes we are not right there with the entire answers ready on the day, we will always endeavour to find out the appropriate information and pass that onto our Clients in a timely manner. Our dedicated Team are here to assist, fulfil and respond to your needs placed before us in such a manner that pleases all our Clients and Contacts.
