Customer Reviews

This agent is the best agent, he knows his business. His team is really professional, they keep us updated and his negotiating skills are really awesome. We recommend him 100%.
This agent was proactive and sold my house within his estimated timeframe. He kept me informed at every step in the process and took care of the small details himself without my involvement.
This agent & his team were nothing short of superb. We found this agent to be enthusiastic, well-prepared, efficient and highly professional. Wei's property description was one of the best ones I've read, carefully and concisely highlighting all the property's unique characteristics. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this agent. Brilliant. Thank you.
I am very happy with the sale. This agent did everything he said he was going to do, and went over and above my expectations. This agent achieved a sales price above what I expected, I am very happy.
From the moment this agent started presenting what he could do, I knew he was the right agent for the job. He is very knowledgeable and experienced which enabled me to feel confident in his ability to get me the maximum price possible for my home. I was very happy with the end result and the time frame in which it was sold in. I couldn't have asked for anything else. I will be sure to recommend this agent to all my family and friends.
Very thorough, informed and organised. Property sold in a week and a half. Also put us onto a fantastic mortage broker.

I received your recommendations back in October of last year, to use this agent to sell my mother’s house in Elizabeth, Sth Australia, as I live in Melbourne. I would like to let you know that he was very helpful, he kept in contact with me by phone, to let me know what was going on. We were lucky to sell the house to her neighbour, which she was happy about. He went out of his way to assist mum, in particular, picked her up and took her to get the papers signed at the conveyance office for me. So thank you for recommending him, it made it much easier for me, being so far away, to have someone that performed in a pleasant and professional manner. Anne Eustace For Mrs Enid Boanas

Thank you for all your hard work, and to tell you how much we appreciated your help, understanding and kindness during the sale of our investment property, which was a very stressful time for us. From the day of our first meeting you went over and above to help us, even with things that were not your concern. Everything was made easy and absolutely nothing was out of the question, you were there for us every step of the way, even on a Sunday night. Your high level of enthusiasm and professionalism is a credit to you and your office. We are still amazed and grateful that the property sold at the first open. We have no hesitation in recommending you, and already have, to a friend who is about to sell their home. - Toni, Darren and Wayne

I would like to let you know how pleased we were with the service of this agent on the sale of our house. He was very professional and punctual at all times. It made the process so much easier, we would not hesitate recommending this agent and the team at Ray White to all our friends in the future. Thanks again this agent and the Ray White Team. - Tony and Liz

I am writing this letter to thank you for your professionalism in the sale of several of my investment properties. With your exhilarating enthusiasm, overwhelming interest and specialised marketing campaigns, we have been able to sell these properties for premium prices and in a very short time. I also want to mention your commitment to go above and beyond the call of duty as required and especially when you took the time out of your day to accompany me to the Magistrate’s court to assist in recovering rental monies from a delinquent tenant. I have no hesitation in recommending you as your expertise, honesty and integrity have ensured that my experiences have been an enjoyable and exciting one. - Geoffrey

this agent is a very personable gentleman who was always ready to help us at any time with the sale of our house. We found him to be a very genuine, honest, friendly person, who not only helped us sell our house but was more than willing to assist us with the purchase or our new house, even though it was not a property he was selling. We would highly recommend him to anyone selling their house. - Matt and Melissa

We met this agent when we were preparing our house for sale. Although we were familiar with the importance of presentation, this agent gave us further information and encouragement in that regard. Once our house was on the market, this agent was as energetic in his planning toward a sale as he had been in his encouragement. As well, once selling was underway he kept us well-informed regarding responses to open-house showings and feedback from other prospective buyers. During this process, if at any time we felt the need to talk to him, this agent was only a phone call away. this agent loves his job as a real estate salesperson and this shows in his attitude, which is both professional yet friendly. He relates well to clients of all levels and this ability leads to positive sales results, which for us as vendors, translated into not just dollars, but also a reduced selling time. - Phillip and Jeanne

We thank you most sincerely for handling the sale of our house. Your friendly, efficient and enthusiastic manner was a pleasure to behold and we will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone requiring real estate services in the Northern suburbs. - Lois and Phillip

After meeting with a few real estate agents, my ex-husband and I decided to go through this agent for the sale of our family home. He was referred to us by my sister and her husband. They spoke extremely highly of this agent after their dealings with him when they purchased their first home. After meeting this agent the first time, my initial impression was that he was a very polite, young man who obviously had a passion for real estate. It was obvious that he knew the industry and had done all the research necessary to ensure he would put our home in the correct target range for a genuine sale. He was extremely organised and prepared to answer all my many questions. He took it upon himself to form a relationship with our whole family, including our children, and we all felt extremely comfortable with him. - Tania
Reviewed by:
this agent was very considerate to the needs of my family when making times to show people through and always gave us plenty of notice. Wherever possible he would group viewings so it would be more convenient for me. I was confident and trusted this agent 100% when it came to him having keys to my home and to open up and lock up after himself as necessary. I was completely confident with this agent during final negotiations and took his advice on so many occasions. He even acted as my broker for the purchase of my new home. He researched the properties and suggested appropriate prices ranges. He even made the negotiations on my behalf. Both real estate agents that he spoke to were very impressed with him. - Tania
Reviewed by:
I sold my house through this agent . this agent portrayed a high degree of professionalism and dedication to his work but the most impressive aspect was his ability to negotiate. The experience and knowledge this agent has in the real estate industry was evident as he marketed my property and discussed the benefits of not only the home, but the location and future developments in the area. The connections with people this agent has formed over his duration in real estate was the reason my house sold and I can say with confidence that it is his enthusiasm, work ethic and determination to be the best agent for his vendor that has enabled him to develop such strong and reliable relationships. He is hard-working, some may even say a workaholic, knowledgeable about his craft and most importantly genuine. I would not hesitate in recommending him to my friends and family. - Tara and Jarrad
Reviewed by:
During the time our home was on the market, this agent kept me informed every step of the way as to what was happening. He provided me with regular updates after each open inspection and after his follow-up phone calls. I never had to chase him up to find out what was happening. this agent never wasted our time with unrealistic offers but when he did have an offer to present, he did so making sure we thought of all aspects, both positive and negative, of each offer. Most of our offers were subject to sale so this agent investigated the realistic chances of their own sales and reported this information for our consideration when deciding whether or not to accept the offer. I had complete trust in this agent and his opinion. - Tania

Mr. Lao is an individual most people wish were an employee of theirs, or a boss to them. Now that I have known Mr. Lao for over a year, I would class him as a lifetime friend. Friends are generally associated with people you can trust and rely on, Mr. Lao always exceeds these expectations, more than often providing you with services well before you have thought of them as necessary. Thank you, Mr. Lao for all you have done for myself, family and friends to date. I look forward to a lifelong relationship, both on a business level, and social level. You are an absolute credit to the industry. Keep up the exceptional benchmark you have set yourself. - Dominic

Through my dealings with real estate agents while looking for my own home to purchase, it quickly became clear just how skilled this agent was as an agent. I can honestly say that I did not meet another agent who even came close to this agent and I met lots. this agent not only stayed in touch regarding issues that arose with the sale of my property, but also to make sure things were going smoothly with the purchase of my new property. He took the time to come out and visit once the sale had gone through, champagne in hand, to celebrate. I would definitely recommend this agent to family and friends who need an agent. - Tania

In the planning and finance stage of my development, I contacted Mr. Lao numerous times for advice and services. On every occasion Mr. Lao was more than willing to help and attend to my request. When it came to advertising for a short term tenant, property photos were taken immediately and advertised the following day. When I needed a rental appraisal for my proposed three dwellings, Mr. Lao emailed me before I was even off of the phone. It’s his exceptional proactive ability that he can use today’s modern technology to provide services that are not experienced by anyone in the customer seat. Whilst my development was progressing, I had decided to also sell my family home. On inviting Mr. Lao to my home, he asked if he should take his shoes off, a clear sign of again a person who understands the diversity of cultures in Australia. He greeted my family with smiles, and brought small gifts for us. Although not a necessity, it’s definitely hard to forget someone who steps outside the median to make a lasting impression. - Dominic
Reviewed by:
When meeting Mr. Lao for the first time, I could immediately sense his professionalism and respectful nature. Allowing me to walk through the property in my own time and answering my questions from an unbiased position confirmed my initial judgment. It was through discussion with Mr. Lao about my reasons for wanting to purchase the property, his knowledge of the property he was selling and his willingness to satisfy me that I made the correct decision not to put forward an offer. How often in life does a real estate agent actually educate you out of making a wrong decision? Mr. Lao has enough experience to know that customers will always analyse their decision at some stage, and should it be contradictory to advice or information they had received, word of mouth will always affect the agents and company’s reputation. I eventually purchased a property to develop in mid-2012, but unfortunately the site wasn’t a listed property of Mr. Lao. The property was listed by another company and agent, to which I had no end of grief, harassment and illegal contractual pressure. The entire purchasing process was a nightmare fueled by my description of the ‘typical sales personnel’ above. What these real estate agents had failed to understand was the concept of ‘repeat business’. - Dominic
Reviewed by:
Mr. Lao brought with him extensive market reports of recent sales in my area and was able to give me a true and accurate value of what I could sell my property for. Mr. Lao’s communication with enquires about my home, organisation of private and open inspections was as non-intrusive as you could imagine that I was seriously amazed that one person could have such potential. From a vendor’s point of view, Mr. Lao definitely achieved again an above expectation of service, and managed to coordinate a sale that left both me and the purchaser very gratified to have had such a proficient process completed. Given Mr. Lao’s continued drive to excel in his industry, I recommended his services to my mother, who has now listed her home for sale with Mr. Lao and is already receiving the benefits yet to be experienced in any customer service industry. Very shortly, I will be listing my 3 development dwellings for sale, needless to say who will be completing the marketing and contractual arrangements. - Dominic
Reviewed by:
Sales personnel have a generalised persona of being intimidating and obtrusive. Their typical motive is to forcefully drive prospective customers into making a rational decision, commonly not in the customers’ best interest. There is a lot to be said about my initial introduction to Mr. Lao from a purchaser's view point. In the early months of 2012, I was avidly seeking a potential site for property development. As like most educated buyers nowadays, I had completed extensive research and data analysis to help with my decision making. Mr. Lao had listed a property in Smithfield that was quite appealing to me, so I contacted him to arrange a time to view the property. In a timely manner he had coordinated a suitable time for both of us and the long term tenant. - Dominic
Reviewed by:
this agent ’s buoyant personality made the stressful act of selling our house more relaxed and pleasant than it might have otherwise been. He went beyond the necessary with advice and help, not only with the sale of our home, but also with assistance regarding the purchase of another one somewhat distant. As we move beyond the business of parting with one much loved home and into the accommodation of another, we continue to think of this agent as a friend rather than simply the agent who sold our house. - Phillip and Jeanne
