Achieve real results with Ray
In 2008, I launched my real estate career with Barfoot & Thompson. Selling 22 homes to a value of $10M+ in my first year in an especially tough market, my career has gone from strength to strength.
My success has not been driven by luck. It’s a result of a structured, focused work ethic, a 'never give up' attitude and strong negotiation skills. I possess a deep understanding of the property market, council regulations, subdivisions and the project development industry –I am constantly updating my professional knowledge, so my clients can rely on me for the right advice.
Currently based at Long Bay, over the past 15 years I have worked in branches in the Central, Eastern and Southern regions of Auckland and have accumulated a comprehensive understanding of property in the wider area.
By way of background, I came to New Zealand in 1997 and completed a Bachelor of Science (double major) at the University of Otago. I went on to run two photo shops and a copy centre in Epsom and Remuera, specialising in photos, flyers, signage and catalogues. I use these skills today to produce effective marketing material for my clients. I also hold a Bachelor of Engineering degree from Shenyang University of Technology and worked for a top industrial instrumentation factory in the Technology and Sales Department for 10+ years. This experience honed my marketing, public relations, and client service and negotiation capabilities.
Discover the potential value of your property. My knowledge of the Auckland City Council unitary plan, underground services and subdivision regulations and my work experience as General Manager of a large apartment development company, gives me a sound knowledge of real estate development and construction. I will use my accumulated knowledge and rich work experience to provide a full range of services in land subdivision, housing design and market integration.
With a decade of experience in the Chinese market and now 25 years in New Zealand, I’m proud to say I have built a solid reputation among my clients and peers. Registered as a rural salesperson, living on a lifestyle block, I am equally comfortable with residential and rural sales. If you are thinking of buying or selling, I would love to help you. As mentioned, I know the wider Auckland real estate market well, and can offer trusted insight into the area that would best suit you.
"Ray is a very enthusiastic and hard working real estate agent who has a far reaching data base of buyers, Ray was able to create a multi offer and sell our family home above the asking price, well above expectations. We would recommend Ray very highly."James M. Costello Estate
"Being overseas ,we selected 5-6 agents/agencies to send us appraisals for our property prior to us deciding to put it on the market for sale, and Ray's was the most enthusiastic, prompt and positive appraisal we received. We found him very motivated and comfortable to work with. He kept us well informed on the progress and responded to emails promptly.
Towards the latter part of the sale when we were not happy with the prices offered by various potential buyers, we decided to take the property off the market and place it on rent. Ray did not lose his motivation and kept at it and managed to get us a buyer at the eleventh hour.
Having a rental contract signed up with the Rent shop and a renter ready to move in and a sale offer by Ray in the other hand was a tough decision for us. We decided to go for the sale as Ray convinced up it was a better option via his email explaining the sale option against the rental option in detail
In conclusion it was a good experience working with Ray and we definitely would recommend him to our friends."
"We would like to express our thanks to Ray Qu for the professional way in which he conducted the sale of our property. He was most knowledgeable and informative."Bob and Pauline
