What They Say


  • Terry Cleary This letter is in regards to Terry Cleary. I highly recommend Terry as a real estate agent. I had used his services approximately five years ago and was exceptionally happy with the outcome. So when I decided to put my new home on the market and realised that Terry was now in Lara, there was no question as to who I would use. Once again I did not regret my decision. I found Terry to be honest, reliable and hard working. Not only did he sell my house for full asking price but greatly assisted me in purchasing my next home for me and my family. Terry answered endless question. I was always able to contact him and if he was busy, would return my calls promptly, even on his days off. Terry went beyond the call of duty when I had trouble with my conveyance he help sort out the paper work. I am considering purchasing an investment property in the near future and Terry will be the first to know. I can't recommend Terry highly enough. Monica R.

  • Terry Cleary We recently required the services of a Real Estate Agent, and after a difficult time, selected Ray White Real Estate Agency, Lara. The consultant assigned to our situation was Mr. Terry Cleary. On first meeting, we were very impressed by the professional approach of Terry, and when the whole team visited the property they demonstrated a caring and courteous approach. Great attention to detail was evident in the advice and guidance we received. The saying "ticks all the boxes" is at times a much overused cliché; however it truly applies in this instance. We were treated at all times with unfailing patience and courtesy. We thank you. Dot & Paula

  • Natasha Sammit Good Morning, I wish to bring your attention to the person who sold my mothers Property at 20 Wood Duck Court in Lara earlier this month. My Mother Margery, was suffering from a Terminal Illness when she had the pleasure of meeting Natasha Sammit for the first time. My mother, who was a good judge of character, stated that this was the person she would buy a house off and so felt comfortable trusting Natasha to sell her home. My mother and my Family loved dealing with a person who is professional, punctual, warm and caring, the sort of person who can earn your trust and is firm in her beliefs. Natasha did not ask myself to write this, I offered. Any Employer would be lucky to have this young lady for her ability and work ethic, you are very lucky people to have a person of this Quality working for your Company. Regards. Gary Dean.
