Specialising in the suburbs of Thirroul, Bulli and Woonona with unrivalled understanding of the property market and a rare insight into the community. John prides himself on a high level of professionalism, expert negotiation skills and passion to achieve record breaking results.
I cannot recommend John O'Reilly and his team enough to assist with the sale of your property or real estate advice in general. His knowledge of the Wollongong region and its suburbs and the South Coast in general is extensive and he always provided sound selling advice as well as proactively looked for solutions to problems that cropped up during the sale of our property in Bulli. Thanks again John!
From the get go, John presented himself as being knowledgeable, professional and straight to the point. The important part being that he walls the walk as well! Thoroughly informative throughout the sale process, with no nonsense communication. His ability to negotiate, and read the market are exceptional. I won't be going anywhere else if the opportunity arises again.
John was always honest and very helpful. In the lead up to putting on our place on the market he had some great ideas. I would recommend his services to all.
We recently sold our home in Thirroul of 22 + years and this was a very emotional time. John and his team went above and beyond our expectations making this whole experience and transition much easier. His personal service, honesty strong ethic and standard of excellence lead to a very successful sale. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending Laurence and Morgan R/E Agents!
John is a superstar!! We were looking for an honest, professional and experienced agent. John certainly ticked these boxes from the very first time we spoke. John is very friendly, hard working, has fabulous negotiation skills and excellent communication skills and made us feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. He took extra measures to ensure our sale goal was met, and no hidden disappointments. We are extremely happy with the outcome, thanks to John! You won't find another agent like John.
My wife and I used John from Laurence Morgan and were thrilled with how everything went. John made you feel like you were his only client and was always willing to answer any questions and provide help with anything else along the way. Even after the sale went through! He made us feel very comfortable in my first ever sale of a house where the nerves were at an all time high! Thanks for everything John!
John was very professional and helpfully in every ways. Sale was quick with no headaches or stuff around. He responded to questions promptly and accurately. He and his teammates ( Daniel & Adam) were very helpful through the whole purchase process.
Glenn and Karen
We are happy that we engaged John and his team to sell our property. John was highly recommended to us and from the first meeting I was impressed with his market knowledge and approach to selling. John gave us confidence that he would ensure the property would be advertised well, the buyers engaged and the he would seek the best possible outcome for us. Though the whole process John kept is well informed and supported us with our decisions. Adam and Daniel were also impressive. Hard working and polite.The market stats and feedback given to us we outstanding.We would have no hesitation in recommending John and his team.
Harry and Kendra
John was upfront about his expectations of our negotiation. He was pushy in trying to get more money for his vendors but once we had made a deal John and his team were very helpful in making sure everything went smoothly.
John made everything easy with selling and buying.The team at Laurence and Morgan are awesome.
Being a first home buyer and being in the market for so long to find the right house John made it easy and everything was communicated openly and transparent, was a very helpful and passionate person to talk to and handled all of our needs and requirements with ease.
Shaun and Monica
John and Adam were wonderful agents to deal with! We had great communication during the whole process and they were such lovely people to deal with. Would highly recommend John and his team to anyone looking to buy/sell!
I’m absolutely certain that I could not have made better and more advantageous real estate agent choice, than, John O’Reilly and his team at Laurence Morgan Woonona. John and his team were amazing, professional, courteous and supportive, I was constantly updated on any new developments. John was and remained totally invested in making sure we sold our home in the most professional and expedient manner, even ringing me from overseas whilst on holidays to, make sure I was ok. Great negotiation skills and expert knowledge of reality helped us sell our property in the least stressful & most expedient time possible.Thank you so much to John, Adam & Daniel for the proffesional courteous & caring way our business was concluded.You all have my highest regard & recommendation.
Amazing service - very thorough and helpful, knew the market and understood buyers needs. Couldn't have been happier.
So grateful to John and Adam for the excellent and professional service they provided in the sale of our home in a difficult market. Honest and upfront with outstanding negotiation skills, I have no hesitation in recommending.
John is a very courteous agent who have a great degree of knowledge of the real estate market.
The most efficient, organised, informative, hard working team of men that I've ever come across. Was a pleasure working with you to sell our property. Good job, well done, thank you.
John and his team were outstanding every step of the way, making sure our home sold within one week. John's thoughtful assistance in preparing our home for sale, making recommendations and providing welcome insight on ways to best present the home were fantastic. Thanks to his tireless work and regular communication were able to get a great price in a quick time, feeling informed and in control every step of the way. An excellent experience, highly recommend!
Anna and Barry
We were very happy with the way John conducted the sale of my mothers house and also the result. John was exceptionally accurate about the way it would proceed and the result. We would recommend John and his staff to anyone.
John and team recently sold our nan's house in Woonona. We can't recommend him highly enough. He was professional, friendly and clearly knew his business. He got us a better price than we expected and gave us the best advice for what we should do to help the house sell. John made a typically stressful situation incredibly easy, and was accommodating of our special circumstances. We would gladly use John's services again and would recommend John to anyone looking to buy or sell.
From the first phone call I had with John, I felt comfortable in selling our house with him and his team. They were extremely professional and knowledgeable, showing care to market our house to the right audience and making any changes necessary to gain interest. They showed great communication, with weekly meetings and updates, and also being available by phone at any time needed. John, Adam and the team went above and beyond to sell our house and this resulted in us getting the price we needed. I would recommend John and his team to anyone selling in our area.
Could not have been happier with the total commitment to the sale of our property from the first meeting to the final sale. Absolutely outstanding and achieved a price higher than anticipated. Would totally recommend this real estate to any one thinking of selling or buying property. So professional.
Daniel and Micaela
This is our second time selling with John. Once again we found him to be incredibly knowledgeable, communicative, approachable and supportive.Selling your home is a big emotional, financial and logistical process. John was an amazing support every step of the way. We had complete trust in John and his team. They went above and beyond for us and exceeded our expectations on all fronts.
We bought and sold through John O’Reilly and his team, and would not hesitate to recommend them. We found extremely professional in their approach. They had a well thought through and informed sales strategy, and fully engaged with the online platforms and the resulting data. John listened to our views, and we always felt we were included in the decision making. What really sets John apart is his commitment to you and willingness to put in that extra effort to get the best result. In our instance this resulted in a high sale price in a slowing market.
Thank you John and your fabulous team for your dedication, commitment, professionalism, patience and laughter. Can not imagine better guys than Laurence Morgan !!!
Alan and Anne
John O'Reilly sold our house in Wombarra in 2015 and we were so impressed that we engaged him again to sell our apartment in Wollongong in 2018. He has always been extremely professional in every respect with a positive attitude that makes the whole process very enjoyable and stress free. We would have no hesitation in recommending John and his great team.
Meg and Jarrad
From the moment my partner and I first met John and Jake we were amazed by the level of customer service and a genuine attitude of wanting to help us.John went above and beyond with what I believe would be the normal duties for an agent, and if it were with any other real estate I don't believe we would have got the house we wanted!As it was our first time buying a home - it is safe to say we were rookies with the process.From providing us with advice on the market, advice on brokers to just being a friendly face at the open houses.Both John and Jake were helpful, informative, friendly and passionate about what they do.Thanks so much to everyone at Laurence Morgan, who helped us get our dream first home!
John is professional, hard working and bloody good at his job. Thankfully, he is also very likeable which made selling our house a more enjoyable process. We feel very confident that another agent couldn’t have sold our house for as good a price and wouldn’t have made the process as easy. He took control of the process, was always available to talk about anything and we developed rapport and trust. No regrets whatsoever and if I ever sell again, he’ll be the person I call.
I would definitely recommend John O’Reilly and Jake Saunders! I really felt the agent knew his business. He came to the initial meeting with very helpful information and explained his process in a way that definitely showed his expertise in real estate. John and Jake never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. Super responsive as if you are his only client! Friendly and professional. Thanks for helping us sell our house!
Glenn and Elise
John and his team were so wonderful to work with! Both John and Jake went above and beyond and made every step of the process to sell easy. John’s knowledge of the local area and market as a whole is remarkable. He was awlays extremley professional, but with a very personable nature. We bought our property from John 3 years ago and always knew we would return to him when the time came to sell. Having worked with John as both a buyer and seller, I could not recommend John and his team enough. John achieved our sale in a very commetive market and we thank him for his hard work and the excellent result we achieved.
Barry and Karen
In 2015, we purchased the same property and John was the Agent acting for the Vendor then. This time John acted for us and we found him straight forward and very professional. From a communication perspective, he and his team were prompt with their communications both on the phone, Face Timing and via emails. The sales strategy he presented to us was comprehensive and he and his team followed through on the different stages of the selling process. Whilst the end result was on the lower end of our targeted price he still achieved a good result given that the market has slowed considerably and the volume of person looking to buy had weakened. We would have no hesitation in recommending John and his team to anyone in the Illawarra area seeking to sell their property.
John and Jake made a pretty stressful process as smooth and pleasant as it could be. I would gladly recommend John and his team.We bought an investment property where John was the selling agent. I think he got a good price for the vendor! He was very easy to work with: personable, great communication and very accommodating. John certainly knows the market and was able to answer all our questions regarding the property we bought.
Elizabeth and Paul
John had excellent knowledge of the past, present and future developments, in the near vicinity and surrounds.He also managed to make the transfers of contracts simple.He and assistant, Jake, were also very helpful with any further discussions.
I would definitely recommend John O’Reilly as an agent when selling. We were very happy with the service we received, great communication prompt to respond to calls and emails. Everything that John said he would do was done efficiently and professionally resulting in an excellent sale price in a depressed market.
Steven and Kelly
Great supportive service. Will use John and Jake again. We felt supported and had nil stress or pressure. They knew how to steer our sale and are trustworthy operators.
Justin and Nicole
John and Jake were fantastic helping us purchase our first property. The communication they used made it easy and less stressful with the whole process. We definitely would recommend John and the team to anyone considering to use them in the future.
I found the whole process like a 'walk in the park', there was no stress in the process at all. John and the team were exceptionally efficient, down to earth and 'fun to be around'
Peter and Diane
We found John to be very professional in the way he conducts his business and is very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. We would recommend him to anyone who was selling their property. Jake who works for John is very pleasant and we feel he will learn a lot from John and do well in the future.
Rochelle and Philip
John has been fantastic to deal with for our purchase of Glenlee Dr. He’s friendly and genuine and doesn’t give you that pushy salesmen feel. He ensured everything went smoothly and quickly and nothing has been a drama. I would highly recommend John. A shout out to Jake too who’s also been fantastic and so so helpful along the way. Cheers guys :)
Tim and Kayla
John was absolutely no nonsense. He never lied or exaggerated to sell the property and he was very clear about all how he would communicate with both ourselves and the seller. I really appreciated his advice and help with purchasing the property and would highly recommend him in the future.
I would highly recommend John as an agent. Throughout a difficult sales process and extended cooling off period it was very evident that John was working hard for both sides to keep everybody calm, patient and on board. He was always available to chat and responded quickly to any texts / emails. While the experience was challenging overall, it would have been much worse without his assistance!
Simon and Hayley
The way John and his team handled themselves through the process of selling our house was first class. John's knowledge of the market was spot on, ensuring we got the sale we wanted. Special mention to his sidekick Jake who worked his butt off.
Having known John before he began his Real Estate career I was well aware of the emphasis he places on providing exceptional and comprehensive customer service. On this occasion also, he managed to go above and beyond the responsibilities of a real estate agent and a good person. John’s perfectionist like nature was at its best throughout the process of selling our home. From the word ‘sell’ John took pride in ensuring our property was faultless for the open houses, providing professional insight and personal advice toward the finishing touches. There were a number of occasions when John made himself available after business hours, for meetings and phone calls. At all times John promptly returned calls and kept communication at a high level. I had no worries leaving our property in John’s hands as his motivation and proactive attitude always shone through. John’s expertise took all stress and drama out of the selling process and our property was sold for a desirable price and time.
Keith and Colleen
I would like to express our sincere thanks for the manner in which John facilitated the sale of our properties. We are aware that it can be easy to ‘get the job done’ during good times but in a challenging market we required an agent who would remain positive and grind through the process with unwavering loyalty, humour and persistence. The day John turned up with a high-pressure cleaner to brighten up the entrance of our property was an example of his commitment and willingness to go the extra mile.
Terry & Anne-Marie
We had watched the market for some time and closely followed what was going on in the northern suburbs and in the end we decided to list our house with John. There were several reasons for this decision. We were impressed with the amount of property coming under their banner and the amount of people who were interested in each property. This gave us the confidence we were lacking to list with John. Once the decision was made we handed over our keys for a month and John and his team went to work seeking the best buyers for our home. There was no fuss or bother with open days. We were impressed with the team approach evident on every visit to the office. The end result exceeded our expectations. John his team are the consummate professionals when it comes to property.
Merran and Rebecca
I am writing this letter in appreciation of all the hard work John O'Reilly has done on our behalf over the last six months. I first contacted John earlier in the year to discuss the possibility of finding a site for a new childcare centre in the northern Wollongong region. I had already schlepped around to all of the agents in the Thirroul, Bulli and Woonona areas over the past eighteen months to try and locate a suitable property, but without any success. Because of the council's requirements regarding zoning and location, it felt like I was asking for the impossible, but John was not daunted by all of the restrictions placed on suitable site and renewed my confidence that a site could be found. Sure enough, only a few weeks later, John called me to tell me he had found a possible site and had spoken to the vendor about our intentions. From there he coordinated everything while we negotiated a sale price, had soil testing completed and valuations made. He even referred us to a development consultant, who has come on board to help my business partner and I create our ideal childcare centre. John's professionalism, sincere wish to help his clients, and most importantly, his integrity make him a fantastic person to deal with. He has an excellent knowledge of the Illawarra area and has obviously built up an experienced group of professional contacts that he can call upon to help his clients manoeuvre around issues of financing, council applications, etc. Without John's help I know that we would still be searching for our ideal site. He was able to achieve in a matter of weeks the one thing a number of agents couldn't do in eighteen months. We recommend John O'Reilly to other clients as a highly motivated, professional and reputable agent who can get the job done!
Bryce and Carly
It wasn't a long process and I hope we helped out with the effort that we put in however John and Daniel were unbelievable in what they accomplished for us. When we started out we were expecting (and happy with) approximately $40,000 less than what we achieved. I honestly cannot speak highly enough of the team and the way it was handled. I made it quite clear to John why we decided to sell our home with him (regardless of the name on the signage) and we still stick by that. The way in which John helped us style and advertise our home we know maximised the appeal and couldn't fault any of the process. He was honest, never pushy; we were made to feel comfortable and never had the feeling of dealing with a "Real Estate Agent". When the Exchange date arrived despite a few dramas they handled themselves unbelievably well. The whole experience seemed as though we had known the team for a long time..... Trustworthy seems a good way to sum it up.
John was always attentive, efficient, driven and very pleasant to deal with. The market was buoyant when I sold and as such John was juggling multiple properties and working very long hours. Even in that environment I still always felt like his most important client. A number of unexpected personal matters of mine complicated the sale but John was not phased just compassionate and professional. I have no hesitation recommending John to both sellers and buyers.
Glenn and Elise
My wife and I were looking at properties for around six months so we dealt with a lot of agents. John was very friendly, patient and transparent which were traits we did not come across too often in our experience. When we decide to sell in the future, we would not hesitate in listing with John and his team.
John was very helpful in the whole process of buying my property. He gave me all the facts and figures. He spent a lot of time finding out all the details that I asked for. I bought my property off the builder's plan, so I wasn't very clear about what the inclusions would be. John took time to write down a big list of inclusions in consultation with the builder. He never hesitated to let me visit this property whenever I asked to do so. He is a very friendly person and doesn't mind us calling him any time. My wife and I both like John in his dealings with us. We wish him all the best in his career.
Cathie & Joe
As usual John, Joe and I think that you are the best Agent we have ever had the good luck to find. We have delt with many Agents over the last 46years and we honestly think you have been the most honest, reliable, genuine person we have come to know. Thank you for the great results you have achieved for us.
John was totally on the ball. He set a strategy and followed it through, lifting the selling price of our property by a substantial amount. When push came to shove he was on our side.
Really good agent. Honest and straight forward.
John & Barb
We were extremely pleased with Johns ability to break down our sales decisions to basic elements in a clear and concise way. We would recommend him for any future projects.
Luke & Tania
Our purchase and selling experience was made easy with the knowledge and help from John. Would highly recommend him to others.
Greg & Kristy
John was really great to deal with straight talking with no nonsense, and on auction day acheived a sale price above our expectations.
My experience with John O'Reilly and the team has been nothing short of outstanding, they are a breath of fresh air in a highly competitive industry, I find them approachable, professional, knowledgeable, and "in my corner" I highly recommend John and the team to friends, family and anyone wanting "to cut to the chase and be treated right" thanks again and all the best, from another happy customer.
Bruce & Carol
We were delighted with the outcome of the sale of our property. Over Thirty years we have been in this house so there was an emotional attachment, with many memories. John O'Reilly was very professional in his approach, understanding and showed great enthusiasm. The changes we were asked to do to the property were dramatic however the results were incredible giving us an incredible outcome. John O'Reilly and his team are the ones to sell your property!
John is totally dedicated to selling your property - as though he has no others! Great honest communication that helps you decide what you want
Kylie & David
In purchasing our new home, we found John to be professional, helpful and easy going.
Micaela and Daniel
After speaking with several real estate agents, we immediately felt confident that John was the agent we trusted to sell our property. John's wealth of knowledge and experience paired with his warm and professional manner made us feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. John kept in regular contact with us, well beyond business hours, to ensure we were well-informed and up to date as things progressed. Going above and beyond what we expected from an agent, John's drive and dedication is second to none. We felt confident we could trust John and his team to get the best possible price for our property and are absolutely delighted with the final result.
Brad and Jess
I first meet John 4 years ago at an open house. I instantly had a connection with his way of dealing with both buyers and vendors. From there, John and I first developed a business relationship off the back of a property we purchased In Thirroul through him in early 2013, since then we have sold over 10 properties together. We have formed a very special bond with an extremely high trusting relationship. John is always very enthusiastic about his job and sometimes I feel he loves selling our product more than I do. John and his team make the selling of property a more relaxing and less stressful task and is by far the furthest away from the stigma normally associated with a real estate agent. John will always listen to our needs as a vendor and give great advice on the situation at hand.
Jill & Bob
From our first meeting we were very impressed with John O'Reilly. John is an energetic expert in his field who has impressive communication skills and high levels of "likability". His professional attitude and thoughtful sensitivity to our requirements were highly valued. We have no hesitation in highly recommending John in all aspects of real estate.
After only buying my property off John via an auction in which was an absolute peak market, I decided quickly that it was not the location for me and my plans long term about where I wanted to live had changed. When I discussed this with John he was great straight away and insisted I take some time to really think if this was the right choice. He was great at listening to me and understanding my motivation for wanting to sell and never once pushed me into listing it. I always felt comfortable with John and I could really see apart from the fact he is a real estate agent it was apparent he really wants to help people and he really cares about his clients. I was previously one of those people who always thought real estate agents were sneaky and all about the bottom dollar but John totally changed my mind and changed my perception of that. When my property first went on the market the market was slowing as Christmas was approaching and I had non stop rain at my open homes I felt very discouraged. John didn’t talk me into accepting a low offer. He talked me through the benefit of taking it off the market until the New Year and things picked up. He advised me the exact time to put it back on the market and some changes at my house (which including him turning up after hours with a truck and a co-worker and moving and storing all my excess furniture at friend’s house!! I realised his experience in the industry really shone through in his knowledge and advice and his ideas were spot on! Anyway after only a week or so John secured me a great price and lead me through the process in a fashion I felt comfortable with and supported the whole time. Alot of people say selling a house is one of the most stressful things in life and I agree it can be and I have brought and sold a number of times here and overseas - but without a doubt I can say overall I really had a faultless campaign and a great result thanks purely to John.
John showed outstanding professionalism with his diligence from the moment I approached him about my plans to sell. I found his honesty, regular follow up and keeping me up to date with the latest developments first class. The respect, attention to detail and most importantly support during the whole process enabled me to remain reassured at all times. His advice through the whole sale, direction and realistic outlook helped me in making the right decisions and choices along the journey. It certainly helps when you have a team that is personable and goes the extra mile. The final result was outstanding and I certainly have no hesitation in recommending John to future prospective clients.
I was extremely happy with the services provided by John and Daniel throughout the sale of my townhouse. From the start, John was thorough with his information and knowledge of the market, and his advice for me about preparation of the property was clear and direct (and in line with my own opinion). I felt confident with his approach every step of the way, and was always able to be in touch with any questions or queries. I was kept informed, and I believe a great result was achieved- I am very happy with my experience of selling with John O'Reilly.
Matt & Vivien
John was incredibly informative, with clear and current information throughout the entire process of selling our property. He offered statistics to help inform our decisions and was always available to discuss options. John worked tirelessly to get us the result we wanted. His dedication to selling our property went above and beyond that of any we have experienced before. If you want an honest, dedicated to your needs real estate agent, look no further.
Jancey & David
We bought a property with John. There was a lot of buyer interest, so there was a fair bit of negotiating. We were always kept informed and knew what was going on, even though it got a bit tricky at times. I really liked John's straight up, authentic approach, and would definitely work with him again.
Jessica & Jordan
We would definitely recommend John to any friends or family thinking of selling. John's market knowledge and negotiation skills were excellent and resulted in us achieving a price far beyond our expectations.
John O'Reilly was highly recommended by my friend and on completion of the sale of my family home. I am still very happy with my choice. The sale achieved the price range I wanted and was concluded so fast and efficient that I was even spared the stress of house inspections. I would recommend John O'Reilly to anyone willing to sell their homes.
