John O’Reilly

Director | Licensed Real Estate Agent
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, negotiation, weekly campaign 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.

Completely Trustworthy

John was sincere and compassionate during a really stressful process. We found him completely trustworthy, and could see he was trying to do right by both buyer and seller which isn't always the case. He clearly knew about the area, and was proactive. Having dealt with many agents over the years I found him the most genuine and a lovely guy. Highly recommend for buyer and seller. - Lauren

Stellar Service from 1st Meeting Through Settlement

Laurence Morgan Woonona and the stellar work of both John O’Reilly and Rhiannan Harvey made our home purchase worth every cent.  Their approach of being highly professional yet super-relaxed  made the stress and anxiety of dealing with the ‘process’ melt away. So thankful for their personal attention which was just as strong during settlement as it was during the campaign. Thank you, thank you — we were lucky to come across you. - Terrance and Ian

The Definition Of Professionalism

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. James Lafiatis (Vendor) Albion Park Rail
