Originally from Zhe Jiang province Lawrence moved to Shanghai before coming to New Zealand as a student. He fell in love with this country. Being a keen soccer player he embraced the outdoor lifestyle and our sports-mad culture.
After graduating from University he looked around for a career and was fascinated by the real estate Industry. With a hunger to find out more about real estate he started his career in rentals working essentially in the CBD before moving into sales. Working with an Asian company he used his language skills to engage directly with Chinese and South East Asian nationals, keen to buy property in New Zealand.
During his time working with 'Property Asia" he had the opportunity to be involved in sales of not only residential property but gained experience in commercial, lifestyle and business sales. Lawrence has an outstanding work ethic and understands the importance of providing excellent service; his clients and customers recognise his commitment for going the extra mile and refer friends and family to him, increasing his database and leading him to more successful sales.
After working in this Asian Company for two years he became the top salesperson and realised he needed to move to a larger company with a higher profile to realise his goals of becoming one of Auckland's top real estate salespeople. He chose to join Barfoot & Thompson in Mission Bay to access high profile, top end property.
Manager Teresa Weiss comments; "As soon as I met Lawrence I was impressed with his maturity and marketing knowledge but more importantly his honesty that success would only be achieved through hard work and dedication to his clients and customers".
Lawrence's network has been invaluable, as evidenced in his sales achievements. These include properties up to the value of $25M. Only last week he sold a $10M home. He works with a number of high net worth individuals looking to invest in the Auckland property market.
If you are looking for a young, dynamic, hard working salesperson with strong Chinese and New Zealand Asian connections who knows what he is talking about, contact Lawrence Yuan to represent you.
I approached Lawrence to relist my and my ex's house, after a very bad experience with a Harcourts selling agent who failed us when their buyer defaulted. Lawrence promised that we wouldn't go through the same fate again if he were to relist our house. He worked diligently before the auction to get as many bidders to attend which resulted in our house selling for the highest price on the street in July 2021, a great effort! Lawrence kept his promise and saw us through to the sale of our house to the final settlement in Oct 2021. The buyer paid in full and on time without a hitch. Thank you to Lawrence and his team from Barfoot & Thompson Mt Eden.Swee
We can’t thank Lawrence enough! When the stars were aligned, Lawrence came along and asked if he could list our property. "Let me see what I can do.” he said.
Within a week he had an offer for us and after much haggling, Lawrence’s perseverance and strenuous efforts he presented to us an Unconditional offer. After many salespeople had tried so hard and failed at the last hurdle, we could scarcely believe it. Call it luck, the Midas touch or whatever. Lawrence delivered.
We strongly recommend Lawrence for his services. He is straight-talking, thorough, meticulous and diligent in his efforts and ready to go that extra yard for you.
Thank you Lawrence, we can now move on with our lives.Janti & Bhanu
"Thank you so much for selling my house Lawrence. I was extremely impressed with your professionalism, efficiency and customer service. Normally a process like this can be very stressful but with your guidance and support the process couldn’t have gone any smoother."Lorna of Mission Bay
I chose Lawrence Yuan and John Howard to sell my property because they came across as relatable, professional and hardworking. Throughout the process I found this to be true and I was further impressed with the thoroughness of their communication. They kept me well-informed during the process of listing, which resulted in a quick, clean pre-auction sale and a well-pleasing outcome for both vendor and buyer. Thank you both for your unflagging commitment.J Kane
