10th December 2012 TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN John Lau of Ray White Real Estate Botany was Salesman for my Property. He understood my expectations of him and at the same time understanding the wants and desires of buyers. He can speak three languages, English, Mandarin and Cantonese which I considered an asset. John was excellent at marketing and advised me of little things that could make my Property more attractive to sell. Chapel Road, a very busy road, fronts my Property. Traffic noise was the main negative about the Property but John explained to potential buyers it is very difficult to have 100% satisfaction in a purchase and explained the location being within the School Zone Boundary for Primary, Intermediate and College and the view, in his opinion, outweighed the negative aspect. It was then the Buyers decision to weigh up the pros and cons and really was the traffic noise a major problem? I am sure John fills his position in Real Estate with satisfaction to himself and with distinction to Ray White Real Estate and the Real Estate Industry in general. I strongly recommend John Lau for anyone requiring a reliable, understanding excellent marketer of Property and energetic Real Estate Salesperson. I am sure you will not be disappointed. Yours sincerely, (Mrs.) Valerie J. Killery Q. S. M. J P (Ret’d) 8 Bantry Court, Dannemora, Auckland 2016
29th April, 2010 Let's be honest, there aren't many people out there would like real estate agents. My mother-in-law in particular, sees them as enemy. For us, real estate agents just like lawyers - they earn living with their tongues and, don't normally fuss about ethics and morals. This perception has been totally changed when we met John Lau. Unlike some "fly by night" agents, John is indeed a professional with wealthy experience. He has been working in the industry for many years and is well equipped with relevant laws and legislations. Due to his thorough understanding of the current housing market, he had offered us sound advice and assistance that proved to be valid and beneficial. John also is an eminent and efficient promoter. Our house was sold within the first week after the advertising signboard was erected; resulting in a price beyond our expectation. And at the same time, he helps us find an ideal home within a fortnight. We guest there aren't many agents like John who would go the extra mile for customers with mission even though working very late to get things completed. For example, he would accompany me to obtain a LIM report from the City Council ensuring a timely result when there was urgency needed. Our past experience in selling and buying houses was very stressful and involved much anxiety, yet John's support made this anticipated stressful process easy and pleasant, and even, exciting. John now is becoming one of our good friends and my mother-in-law plans to invite him for a family dinner. We undoubtedly admit that we have received excellent service from John and would never be hesitated to recommend him to anyone who is looking for superb services of professionalism, devotion and enthusiasm. Well done John! Thank you, thank you very much. Justin and Tabitha Zeng 45 Walworth Ave, Pakuranga Heights
6th May 2013 To Whom It May Concern We’ll like to express our utmost thanks to John Lau, our listing agent from Ray White for the recent sale of our property in Dannemora. After just one weekend of open homes, he not only managed to secure a sale but also negotiated a pre-auction price that was well over and above our expectations! From the start, we’ve found John to be a very professional, pro-active and hands-on agent. We lived in Melbourne, so the task of giving the house a make-over after the tenants had vacated, would have been difficult and quite daunting to say the least, but John stepped up to help. He oversaw the painting of the interior of the house and laying of new carpets for us and basically took care of everything from organizing the house to be cleaned, hedges trimmed and lawns mowed to hanging up the new net curtains himself, spraying weed-killer on the cobblestone, changing a number of the light switch covers, etc, just to name some of the things (from a long list) that he did to help make the property presentable and ready for sale/auction. During the entire time when the house was being refurbished and the subsequent sales/marketing campaign, John kept us informed on the progress regularly so we knew what was happening. Despite some initial reservations, we’re really glad to have followed John’s advice to have our home staged as the staging clearly made the property more appealing – as evidenced by the quick sale and excellent price that we got for the property! We’ve been very fortunate to have John as our listing agent as he assisted us in so many ways and worked hard to achieve an amazing outcome for us. We’ve never met him personally, but from our own experience, we highly recommend John’s service to anyone looking to sell their property! Agnes & Nick Foo 31 Annalong Road, Dannemora, Auckland
