Principal

Frank Ham, Principal and Licensee, has been in the property industry for over 23 years, gaining experience in all facets from general real estate through to property management, investment, development sales, new homes and land sales.

As Principal and Licensee of the LJ Hooker Brisbane West and LJ Hooker Project Marketing QLD team, he leads by example, using his knowledge and skills in the marketplace as well as guiding and mentoring his strong team. Frank is a past member of the LJ Hooker Captains Club that represents the highest sales performers internationally and is a current LJ Hooker Admiral, an exclusive group representing the highest level of LJ Hooker Business Owners.

Frank began his career in 1993 working for a large independent property firm in Townsville, initially selling new house and land packages until advancing in to the development and investment area.

After four successful years Frank decided to take the plunge in to business ownership and at the age of 27 became the Principal, Licensee and owner of LJ Hooker Annandale, in Townsville. This was a start up project when he established it in late 1997 with only one employee that grew to become a leading player in the local real estate market, earning multiple awards for business growth, customer service and marketing. Frank and his young family moved to Brisbane in 2002 appointing a manager and eventually selling the franchise in 2003.

Upon arriving in Brisbane Frank spent time as a Regional Manager for LJ Hooker Queensland Operations. During that time, he was responsible for the training and management of 60 LJ Hooker franchises performing a mentoring and sales training role in all aspects of their business.

In October 2005, Frank and business partner Craig Bellette settled on the purchase of LJ Hooker Toowong.

In the eleven years that Frank and Craig have owned the LJ Hooker Toowong franchise, through innovation and a focus on achieving the best outcomes for their clients, they have grown the business strongly.

In the years from 2011 to 2016 to facilitate further growth LJ Hooker Toowong undertook a name change to LJ Hooker Brisbane West, moved to a stand alone 700m2 + premises and purchased the Property Management businesses of Pro Rentals Toowong (partial), First National Toowong and Re/max Property Centre Toowong, along with acquiring ownership of LJ Hooker Project Marketing QLD initially in partnership and in 2016 assuming full ownership.

Over the last eleven years of ownership many of the staff of the business have been awarded State, National and International awards. The business has been recognised as the No. 1 Property Management LJ Hooker Office Internationally on multiple occasions along with featuring consistently in the top 5 offices Internationally for all office income.

Frank Personally has been awarded LJ Hooker Franchise owner of the year and has been a finalist in the prestigious Sir Leslie Hooker Award.

As Frank looks towards the future, he aspires to continue to improve himself as a Principal and a business owner as LJ Hooker Brisbane West and LJ Hooker Project Marketing QLD continue to expand and perform creating great outcomes for his customers and security for his staff and family.
