Good Afternoon Ali, I am writing to express my sincere gratitude and to recognise the wonderful efforts of Mr Leo Ryan. I recently purchased 1/8 Nankeen Avenue, Paradise Point - settlement date 10 Jan 18. Leo's outstanding customer service, huge breadth of knowledge and commitment to his job was displayed in an incredible and engaging manner. The entire process was simple and smooth, thanks to Leo conduct. Every phone call was returned immediately, every question answered correctly. Leo was very personable and thorough during my entire experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for real estate in the area. I would appreciate if you could personally pass on my thanks to Leo. I believe him to be a credit to Ray White. Please feel free to contact me if you require any elaboration regarding my experience. With sincere appreciation, Karen Crookston

Dear Leo, now that we have shifted into our new home even if not fully settled, we would like to thank you for all the wonderful help and the effort you made in helping the transition from selling to buying as smooth as possible. As you know we were originally going to go with our local agent, but on subsequent conversations with you as to how you would approach the sale and the best advertising strategy for us we felt comfortable with you. Not only were you always available by phone or email to the point of getting answers sent by you at 4.30am or late at night, with your experience as manager for Mitre Ten stores you had invaluable insight into things we could do to improve our presentation for prospective purchasers and even the products for best treating our new pine fence. All through the process, which was not always an easy one you were positive. When you came with the offer for our sale which we were going to accept, you thought you could do better, to the point of going back to the purchaser twice and getting us a much better offer. Shifting house is a stressful part of our lives. You Leo were a delight with your honesty, ethics and assistance we knew we were more than a pay packet we were people (friends) we felt. Therefore with all sincerity we thank you and if at anytime you need a reference we are here. Yours sincerely Garry and Shane Smith

It is with pleasure that I write this testimonial for Leo Ryan. Leo had my property sold within 2 weeks of listing it. It was amazing. His service was second to none. He was professional, polite and had my interest in his sights from the get go. He not only sold my property, but he also sold my mother’s property within 3 weeks of listing it. We then purchased another property which was listed with another agent, in which Leo was instrumental in securing it on our behalf before it went to auction. He went above and beyond the scope of an agent. I would highly recommend Leo, in fact I already have given him 2 referrals to sell other properties for friends. Do yourself a favour and if you are considering selling your property, give Leo Ryan a call. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. Regards Anni Mavety

Dear Mr Mian, This letter is to advise you of the experience we have had in dealing with Leo Ryan. As the Principal of Ray White Runaway Bay, you should thank Leo for being such an exceptional Agent. Leo approached us in a friendly and professional manner, and after a stress-less series of meetings with him has successfully Sold our property (at apt 6404, Allisee). He is an example of how an agent should conduct themselves, and showed at all times a relaxed (not pushy) temperament and caring attitude. He was able to effectively communicate with both sides of the transaction to achieve an outcome that still required negotiation but was done without hassle. More importantly, “his way”, achieved a great result for us. He is a market maker!! (If compared to other Agents), Leo has a unique ability to communicate and show empathy to the needs of the Seller and Buyer. He is a standout!! Not only are we happy to have had Leo SELL our apartment, but we were also able to BUY through Leo with the same sentiment regards the negotiations. He was a pleasure to deal with! Regards, Chris & Jenny Ponting

Dear Mr Mian, I am writing to you today to express my gratitude for the outstanding service that was provided by Leo Ryan and to also thank him for all the hard work and effort he put in with my purchase of 120 Crestwood Drive, Molendinar – he was absolutely brilliant! Throughout the entire process Leo was very professional, attentive, and enthusiastic for our excitement in purchasing our home, nothing was ever too much effort for him, and his level of communication was exceptional. Even though he was appointed by the vendors to “sell their home”, Leo made us feel like we were as important as the vendors and not just people who signified the $$$$$. I also received a phone call from Leo last Saturday (10th June) to see how I was enjoying my new home and making sure that everything was good on our end – his level of customer service is beyond anything that I have ever experienced and he should definitely be recognised for it. I can’t say I was a big fan of real estate agents and that was reinforced in the 8 months that I was searching for our home, apart from one other real estate agent who is from the Ray White group (Benowa) Leo has managed to change my idea towards real estate agents (no offence). A part of me is sad that I won’t have the daily communication with Leo anymore but I do know that he will be my first point of contact when it is time to buy another property and he will be the first agent that I recommend to anyone who is wanting to sell their property. I am sure that all the agents on your team are exceptional sales people and do a tremendous job…from my experience, Leo is that little more exceptional. Thank you for everything!
Leo Ryan, in his capacity as a real estate agent for Ray White, was contracted in September 2016 to sell our mother’s property at Labrador following her move into an aged-care facility. As a family we are so thankful to Leo for demonstrating kindness, consideration and care towards our mother, always taking the time to listen to her concerns and requirements. At all times Leo was respectful and understanding of our circumstances. Leo has acted with integrity, professionalism and friendliness, responding to and making himself available when we had concerns. He was encouraging and worked with due diligence to ensure a successful sale. With the property now under an unconditional contract, the outcome has been a pleasing and positive one for our mother and her family.

Dear Ali, As you are the Agent Principal of the Runaway Bay Group, I would like to pass on to you, our experience with our recent dealings with your agent Leo Ryan. The property involved was 21/323 Bayview St, Hollywell. I was so impressed with his thoroughly professional attitude answering all our questions and covering all aspects of the property. We have had many property dealings with various real estate agents over many years on the coast. What was striking in my dealings with Leo was his thorough professionalism, and allocating us plenty of time and information for all associated with the inspections. It was so refreshing to see Leo at all times looking after the interests of the vendor and providing honest and open feedback to us as buyers in negotiating a suitable offer. So much so we have requested that he provide an appraisal on another property we wish to market. We really appreciated his courteous approach and would thoroughly recommend his services.
