A sales professional since completing her Bachelor of Business at Monash University in 2008, Zoe Zhao is a consummate property specialist with a commitment to premier service. Able to empathise with vendors and buyers at all levels and across all cultures, Zoe's natural ability to engage has seen her make quick and rewarding sales connections, long-term client relationships and life-time friendships …all in the course of a single working day.

A fluent Mandarin speaker with an ability to build rapport in every language, Zoe is just as committed to understanding her vendors' expectations as she is to intuiting her potential buyers' motivations. This means Zoe is particularly skilled at creating a win-win situation – one that fulfils the buyer's dream of their future home…at purchase price many vendors can only dream of!

A resolute negotiator with an unshakable ability to close the deal, Zoe's negotiating strategy is also based on her ability to engage with her buyers on a very real level. By understanding buyers' needs, qualifying them quickly, and assessing the limits of their budget, Zoe tailors a negotiating style that suits each individual …before moving quickly and confidently to lock-in a commitment.

A relatively recent Oakleigh local with networks that extend around the world, Zoe is excited by the vibrant and welcoming community she has found here. Having moved to Australia from China to undertake her tertiary education, Zoe has a very personal understanding of the migrant experience …and of the exceptional work ethic required to build a life and career in a new country. Whether it's taking time to maintain connections in her first home or gathering new friends in her new home Zoe's winning personality wins the day!

I cant thank Jody and Sarah enough for the work they have done and the extent that they have gone too to lease my property in these tough times. Communication at every stage has been fantastic, they have also been a pleasure to deal with and I cant recommend them highly enough.Thanks guys for your hard work!

Andre and Max were selected to sell two properties on our behalf just recently. Both sold prior to auction due to the expert diligence and hard work by both. In particular thank you to Andre who always had our needs at the forefront.

Max and his team at O’Brien Real Estate Oakleigh were wonderful in helping us lease our property. They were friendly, approachable and always kept us up to date with the progress of the inspections. I would definitely recommend them to any prospective clients. I look forward to continue working with them into the future. Thank you for being so dedicated and hard-working.
