About Lena Shao

Lena has loved the real estate industry for as long as she can remember. Working in a role that she is passionate about, she endeavours to help people make their property dreams a reality. I have a good working knowledge of subdivision housing and experience designing and building a new house. I also have a large database of developers.

Seven years ago, in Lena's first month in real estate, she sold a $4 million lifestyle property in Whitford on the first day of marketing. Since then she has continued on from this success, moving from strength to strength. This is no surprise given that with a previous company, she built up a database of 400 clients within a year, receiving an achievement prize recognising this feat.

The foundation of Lena's business is her ability to connect with people from all different cultures and backgrounds. A people person by nature, she finds that communication comes easily to her. She is fluent in English, Mandarin and Cantonese, and has a wide network of contacts based both locally and overseas. She effectively uses this network to connect buyers and investors with properties.

Another of Lena's strengths is her understanding of the marketing process. With prior experience working in an international marketing firm based in Auckland, she is adept at creating cutting edge campaigns. Her ability to market a home can make the difference between achieving a good sale and a great sale.

If you are looking for a trustworthy professional with a high moral standard to help you achieve your real estate success, look no further. Contact Lena today to take the next step towards your property goals.

What my clients say

Sam and team were very helpful with the sale of my property. They are knowledgeable about the property market with many contacts of potential buyers.

They were so professional and always happy to help with any queries. My whole experience with his team has been excellent from start to finish. Since the key was passed on to them, I was never there till it was sold in a month with very a satisfactory price. This means I was far less stressed with the sale. I would highly recommend him to anyone. A massive thank you to Sam, Lena and Christina on behalf of me and my family.

Wishing you all the best!

Sam and Lena are the SL Team! They are both highly professional, warm and engaging which made the whole selling process effortless for us. During the listing weeks leading up to auction day, Sam and Lena also provided very thorough updates and took the time to answer any of our queries. Selling a house through online auction and at Red alert level, were all new processes for us and we were worried we wouldn’t be able to get the result we wanted. However, Sam and Lena were very reassuring and confident which put us at ease to trust them to deliver the best result for us, and they did! We would not hesitate to recommend Sam and Lena for their amazing service!

Kevin & Moon - Matairangi Avenue, Totara Heights

Many thanks to you on the sale of Highland Park Drive. Paul and I found you both very friendly and accommodating. You were always on time for appointments with us. Christina was the person I mainly dealt with, texting and phone calls.  She always got back to me promptly and cheerfully, nothing was a bother.

You worked tirelessly for Paul and myself, what a great result you achieved.  We would not hesitate in recommending you to our family and friends. 

Tricia & Paul - Highland Park Dr, Highland Park

Sam and Lena listed our house on Thursday and we received a very attractive pre-auction offer on Sunday. House then sold under the hammer on the Tuesday for a record price in our area!

The experience with Sam and Lena has been fabulous. They were professional, swift and guided us through the selling process with patience.

We highly recommend the SL team and we will be using their services again without question!

If you are looking for a company to assist you on the sale of your property, you can't do better than the Team at Barfoot & Thompson. Namely Sam, Lena and Christina. We were treated with complete respect and professionalism. We were able to follow our journey each week with reports and summaries to an extraordinary climax. We couldn't be happier. Thank you so much guys for all your hard work.

Jillian & Kenneth - Fortunes Rd, Half Moon Bay

We recently sold our property. It was a very pleasant and stress-free experience. We chose Tim, Sam and Lena of Barfoot & Thompson Howick, who made the selling experience very easy and worked tirelessly to secure a sale of our house.

We would recommend them to anyone who wants a stress-free experience, as selling or buying a property can be a very time consuming and stressful experience.

Fazina & Shikandar - Beechdale Crescent, Pakuranga Heights

Thank you for being so reliable, for preparing thoroughly, for all the effort you put into our house, so that it was sold on the first day being listed. Our family is grateful for your work, especially appreciated at this difficult time.

We wish you all the very best and even more success in the future.

It is my pleasure to write a testimonial for this outstanding real estate salesperson. My family and I chose to purchase a bigger house, and made the very difficult decision to sell our beautiful house we grew up in and in which we had so many memories. Taxes were increasing and the upkeep was becoming more difficult. I cannot tell you how difficult this decision was for us. So many emotions and worry for what was to come.

From the moment we met with Sam Leong and his assistant Lena Shao, they put us at ease. We did a walk through of our property, and he let us know minimal things that we could do to our home to get the best price possible. He completely understood our anxieties surrounding our sale, and let us know that he was prepared to do everything he possibly could to see that our home sold for the best price possible. He followed through with all of those promises.

Sam did a fabulous writing up on our property and had pictures and staging done by a professional photographer. We had an offer on the first week of the open home. While it was wonderful news, Sam said we should wait a bit longer regardless of the offer. It turned out to be a good thing because that offer didn’t work out. After the second open home we got a second offer that was much much better then the first and above the house value that we had thought it would be. In the end we got the money we needed, and the home we wanted because Sam never gave up. He made us his priority and that is exactly as we felt.

Throughout this entire process we couldn’t have been in better hands. Even though there is coronavirus outbreaks right now, he was completely available to us anytime. Absolutely anything we needed day or night during our listing and after sale.

Sam is a force to contend with and is definitely at the top of his game as a salesperson and as a friend. We would absolutely not hesitate to recommend him to any of our family and friends. He has certainly chosen the right career. We are so very thankful for Sam and Lena Shao and this entire experience.

We couldn’t be happier choosing Sam Leong and Lena Shao as our real estate salespeople!
