Terry was a pleasure to deal with through every stage of purchasing our first home. Our questions were answered promptly, honestly and effectively which took the stress out of buying a property (especially your first!). Our experience was fantastic thanks to Terry so we would have no hesitation in dealing with him again in future.

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

Hello, We would like to thank all the team at Ray White and in particular Terry Cleary for successfully completing the sale of our property in Lara. We were especially interested in achieving a quick sale, to enable us to purchase a house in the UK before we arrived there later in the year. Terry and the team were fantastic, achieving a sale within 3 days, at a price well in excess of what we expected. We cannot thank you guys enough, and would have no hesitation in recommending the Ray White Lara team for the sale of any property. Thanks and regards, Ian & Melissa

Re; Sale of Jania Street, Lara. Just a note of thanks for your assistance in the sale of our property in just over 3 weeks from placing our home on the market. Your professional advice at our initial appointment to list our property with you won us over in comparison to other real estate agents in Lara. Your suggestions as to how to present our property in the best possible way reflects in the rapid and successful result that you achieved for us. Our calls to you were always returned promptly as were your phone updates after open inspections and progress of negotiations with the purchaser. We would have no hesitation in referring prospective home purchaser's or vendor's to you if the opportunity arises in the future. Yours faithfully, Philip McLean and Stella Weston.

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.

Athol & Gay

We achieved a very positive result and sold our house for more than we had hoped. However, we were concerned about his practices- he gave us inaccurate information about commission rates and we didn't feel he was as transparent as he could have been. Overall, we overlooked that though because the process itself went in our favour.

Nichole & Joe

Terry was extremely helpful throughout the negotiation process and his experience and advise was excellent.

Gary & Wendy

We had previous contact with Terry, and he has always been very Professional about giving all information and follow up. We know that Terry and Yolande worked together well to get us the result we wanted. Also sale achieved in reasonable time. So would not hesitate to recommend Jo and all her team at Lara.
