Nice to meet you. I’m John O’Reilly and I love helping people achieve their property goals. I sell all over the Illawarra, but I'm best known for selling in, Woonona, Bulli, Thirroul, Austinmer, Coledale, Wombarra, Russell Vale, Bellambi, East Corrimal, Corrimal, Scarborough, Coalcliff and Clifton.

Who I am

I was born to be in sales. From a very early age, I was serving and helping clients in my father’s hardware business and giving them advice, which is scary. I love working with people, helping them get what they want, and pushing myself to excel. My friends and family that know me well laugh about all the jobs I have done over the years, but it was all to get me to this point in my life, a real estate agent.

From tour guiding and driving tourist coaches for backpackers throughout Europe, to owning and running a small chain of travel agencies and award-winning restaurants, my career has been diverse. Prior to becoming a real estate agent, I had a stint buying and selling properties, renovating them and flipping them for a profit. This gave me some good insights into real estate and from that day forward it was the only thing I wanted to do.

Wind the clock forward more than a decade, and now I’m selling properties in my local area for record prices. It’s a great feeling chasing your dreams and achieving them. Property is a tough industry, but it’s rewarding, particularly when you see people get a premium price for their property when they sell, or helping people land their dream home.

Working with me

You can expect high energy, laser-like focus, lots of communication and a process for everything. I talk from facts, not fiction. I’m a local. I know the people and the places that make where we live so special. It also means that I put relationships above everything else. In my mind, having your own real estate agent as a trusted adviser is no different from the relationship you have with your favourite barista, hairdresser, mechanic, and anyone else in the community.

My values are important, and I want to make your experience of buying or selling your home one that you will tell others about for a long time to come. My number one philosophy is to create the best BBQ stories, so next time you catch up with family or friends and the topic of real estate pops up, you’re armed with the best story to trump all others.

Why Laurence Morgan

I started Laurence Morgan as a way to provide personalised, professional and profitable service in the real estate industry. Too many agents are after a quick sale, not helping you achieve your real estate goals. I understand that each client comes with their own individual circumstances and reasons for buying or selling. I pride myself on being a skilled negotiator, a great communicator and listener, generous with my time, which is where you get real value from your agent.

Being a specialist agency means I’ve been able to build a team with extraordinary skills in customer service, technology, and database management, allowing me to dedicate my time to the critical areas of matching buyers to properties, buyer management, negotiation, face to face meetings, appraising homes and marketing property to stand out from a crowd. Working with Laurence Morgan means attention to detail, a wealth of knowledge, experience, passion and an abundance of energy to get the results.

I look forward to getting to know you.

Awesome Experience

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! Connor (Vendor) Bulli

A Real Estate Professional Who Will Go ‘Above & Beyond’

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! Michael (Vendor) Bulli

Glenn & 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.
