Spotlight: Jonas Leong
Every month we sit down with one of the big names at LJ Hooker Sunnybank Hills to see what makes them tick, and what keeps them at the top of their game. Today, we're sitting down with Jonas Leong, a multi-award winning agent who comes from a family of agents, and we want to know what drives him forward.
Why did you choose real estate?
My mum and brother were in real estate first; I was an accountant and I just found it too boring, it wasn't me. I'm a people person, and I don't want to be stuck behind a desk. So, fifteen years later, here I am.
What's been your best experience so far?
There's been a few, but one from last year stands out for me. It was my biggest ever sale, at a property in Richlands. I'd done a few sales for this owner before and she kept coming back to me, and she trusted me with her biggest asset. It was a multi-million dollar sale, and when that went through, it was a thrill.
Your brother Ben works here as well, what's that like?
At the end of the day, we're all in a team here, but we're still individuals as well and we do our own things. Still, a lot of the time we do end up working together.
What do you most enjoy about your job?
I love meeting new people every day, and helping people. I once had an owner who'd tried selling a few properties with some other agents and had no success.
I'd made a couple sales in his area and he'd seen my work, and he actually came all the way from West End to our office and booked me specifically. I'm happy to say we sold it at auction, and that's basically what this job is all about. Our job is to help people and make that connection, and that's what I do.
