Chuck Lee - Consultant
“Chuck and NVRE have competently handled the sale of out two houses at Newington.
I have found Chuck has a number of acutely relevant skills and qualities which include: deep specialist local knowledge of the Newington market gained from the transition of the Olympic athletes village in 2000 to the new Newington suburb, integrity and honesty, responsive, communicative and reliable. Chuck’s approach to sales prospects and valuations tends to be cautious rather than overly optimistic which in my opinion is a true mark of integrity.
In consequence, I can highly recommend Chuck and the whole professional team at NVRE.
Testimonial for NVRE
We chose Chuck Lee from NVRE for his knowledge of Newington extending back many years.
Chuck advised us the pro’s and cons for a sale and auction, clearly told us the fees, marketing etc.
The photographer took amazing shots of our house, that generated a higher than average interest.
NVRE offered someone to assist with styling, however we arranged our house to be styled professionally.
Chuck kept us informed after every open house with the interest gathered and who the type of viewer, the just checking it out and the serious buyer.
We sold prior to Auction at a price we were very happy with.
With Chuck, we got the result we wanted about 6 weeks after the initial contact. Timing was perfect.
Chuck knows the suburb, the prices and the buyers. If you decided to sell, Chuck would do a fantastic job with a great result.

Thank you for the opportunity to work with you on the recent sale of our property, which has exceeded our expectations at many levels.
While most sales consultants are only interested in pitching a good sale, you have exercised an extraordinary level of care in listening to our needs and concerns throughout this process. It made such a significant difference to us when you understood that it is not “just a house” we are selling, but a home that we have built over the years. You made it so much easier by assuring us that you had everything in control, and that this process does not need to be a stressful one.
Over one inspection, you have found the right buyer (without the need to list the property on the market) at an offer that was over and above our initial assessment. This is a phenomenal result and we are still amazed that it was sold within 2 weeks!
Now that the property is sold, you have also taken the initiative to assist us in looking for the right rental property in Newington as we transition through this period, which is invaluable to say the least.
With that, I want to congratulate Chuck and the team at NVRE for your continuous commitment to provide only the best to your clients. I will not hesitate to recommend Chuck to anyone.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team at NVRE for the excellent service we received through the sale process of our home in Spitz Ave.
As you know we purchased our home in Spitz Ave through NVRE just over 3 years ago. You kept us informed throughout that process and you welcomed us to the Newington community. You have always been happy to stop and say hello when we have seen you at Newington Marketplace, and this welcome nature shows how involved you are in this community and look after the interests of the residents.
As a result, our decision to use the services of NVRE when it came to sell again was an easy one.
You re-assured us of your structured sale process, as well as the broad range of contacts you have with potential buyers looking to move to the area. We would also like to make special mention of Dottie who was so supportive through the presentation of the property for marketing to the broader market.
You have managed to facilitate the sale of our house and set us up for a comfortable move to our eventual new home at Wentworth Point, once the build is complete.
We believe that your commitment and dedication to us as clients has been unsurpassed. Your focus on the end result was beyond question and your motivating advice and detailed reporting during the process was greatly appreciated.
From the onset we had confidence we were in the right hands and have no hesitation in recommending yourself and the dedicated team at NVRE to others who value professionalism, honesty and integrity.

Once again you have provided exceptional service as I have become accustomed to in my dealings with both NVRE and yourself. I have dealt with you a number of times in my 15 years in Newington in both selling and buying properties and you have always been a pleasure to deal with. Over this 15 year period we have caught up informally a number of times to discuss Newington in general and it not very often you develop a friendship with a real estate agent over this period of time, but who also lives in the area. Your passion for Newington is a very valuable asset to NVRE and the community. So when it came time to sell my property I had no hesitations in coming to you directly.
From the moment I first spoke to you about selling my property you took the time to understand what my requirements were, you provided me with realistic assessments of the market based on recent sales, valuations and economic conditions which allowed me to make the decision to sell my home and commence the next stage of my life with certainty and confidence. The appraisal you provided me was accurate and the fact that my home Was on the open market for just over a week is a testament to your skills and knowledge of the area. Your database of perspective purchasers and their needs allowed you to market my property to the correct perspective purchasers which I believe was a key reason for my property selling so quickly.
Once again Chuck thank you for your assistance in selling my property and my dealings with you over the last 15 years. I would also like to thank the staff at NVRE especially Dottie for managing the inspections and assistance during the settlement period. I would recommend both NVRE, Chuck, Dottie and the team to any prospective seller or purchaser if you wish to purchase a home in Newington or the surrounding suburbs.

I would like to thank you for the exceptional experience you provided me with the recent sale of my Newington property. I would like to share my experience so others can be confident you are the right person to sell their property too.
I had been putting off the sale of my property for many months, dreading the thought of having to go through the open inspections and sales processes. When I finally decided to commit to selling I began my search for the best sales agency. After interviewing the top 4 agents in the area it was clear that you were the best person for the job. You explained your methodologies and shared some real examples of how you have achieved the best result for others, and in addition, you mapped out how you were to do this for me. Your price estimate was in line with my high expectations and better than all the other agents i had interviewed. I had the greatest confidence in you, your ability and your methods for achieving the best result and return for me, and on top of all this you were better than fair with the fees for service.
The day I gave you the go ahead to market and sell the property, something unbelievable happened. You immediately matched a buyer from your database to inspect my property and by the end of the day we had agreement on a sale price. This was the easiest and quickest sale I have ever heard of and my friends and family still find if hard to believe. Having negated the open inspections, with 3 kids under 5, was going to save me the effort to keep the place looking tidy and clean. The best part about the sale was the price you got for us. Yes it was a long time of property values booming but the market was cooling and you still managed another Newington record!
The most challenging thing about this sale was for my conveyancer to have the contracts completed and exchanged in time. Three weeks after your go ahead to sell, we had moved out and settled, barely enough time for my neighbours to say goodbye.
Once again, I thank you for your relentless focus on achieving the best result for your clients, in this case me, and it is clear that you are good at and enjoy what you do.

Chuck Ow Lee sold our house in Newington in February 2014. We were very pleased with the process especially the excellent price Chuck achieved. Chuck knows the market at Newington, where he lives, and is able to promote the special advantages of the Olympic Village and excellent facilities of the area. We are confident that Chuck was working in our best interests. Chuck strove to get the best price for us and we sold for many thousands more than we expected. We are very happy to recommend Chuck and Newington Village Real Estate because we have had a very positive experience from the Sale of our house.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
We recently sold our house at 18 Marathon Avenue, Newington and we are extremely pleased with the price achieved, the speed with which the sale was negotiated and the hassle free experience.
This was all due to the outstanding organization, negotiation and communication skills and knowledge of Chuck Ow Lee. Chuck has an excellent understanding of the market at Newington and treats both vendors and purchasers respectfully without using pressure to achieve an excellent result.
He kept us fully informed not only about potential purchasers but also about economic data and predictions regarding the housing market and indicators likely to have an effect on sale prices.
Although our property was slated for auction after six open houses, Chuck was able to achieve an excellent sale price after only three open houses and all this during the Christmas holiday period which was amazing.
Having purchased this property from Chuck six years ago, we had no hesitation in listing with Chuck when we decided to sell because we also had such a positive experience with him as purchasers. Over the six years living in Newington he has always been friendly and courteous and genuinely interested in both how we had settled in and in our future plans. I am sure he interacts with all his clients, both vendors and purchasers in this way which gives him such excellent interpersonal skills and results.
Finally, Chuck is a very hard worker who appears to love his job. He was contactable day and night and genuinely wants to achieve the best possible result for his clients.
We highly recommend Chuck Ow Lee to anyone contemplating selling their property.

To whom it may concern,
Recently we sold our property at 3 Lewis Way, Newington for what we believe to be the highest fee standing home value to date. As part of this process we interviewed three potential agents to help and quickly concluded that Chuck was the best fit for us to achieve this outstanding result. We chose Chuck due to his enthusiasm, his accuracy in what he offered, his calm and studied approach to the strategy we chose to go with and his track record in previous sales.
Through the selling process, Chuck was very active in maintaining contact with us and offering advice when solicited, he had 25 groups through on the first open day and the property sold soon after, well before Auction.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Chuck to anyone else.
