From flying the friendly skies to helping you sell or buy your next home, Lee Yao has the can-do, go-getting personality that can turn your property dreams into brick and mortar reality.

Having spent more than 12 years cruising at 30,000 ft as a cabin crew manager Lee’s long term ambitions were always much more down to earth and Covid gave him the perfect opportunity to hang up his wings and retrain as a real estate agent.

Moving to New Zealand from native China 30 years ago and calling West Auckland ‘home’ for the last 20 years has equipped Lee with an intimate knowledge of the area’s trends, buyer habits and expectations.  Add to that his language fluency in English, Mandarin and Shanghai dialect, Lee is capable of dealing with buyers and sellers across a diverse cultural landscape.

Lee is tech-savvy and can promote the most appealing features of your property to a broad buyer demographic using device-based marketing or old-school print.

Whether you’re selling a lifestyle mansion packed with glitz or buying a solid family home where you can raise the kids, Lee has the skills, contacts and expertise that all adds up to a service to please.

If you’re looking at relocation then let Lee speed you toward your next destination.

" Let me be the plan behind your purpose, making your next move the best ever!"
Lee Yao



"When Lee started his pitch on what we thought could be the case if we were to sell, it actually led us to trust his process and decide to take a leap of faith, go ahead and sell our home.

We were impressed on how knowledgeable he is, putting our needs first and is proficient at this job, always presentable and a keen listener, we were happy to have Lee and the Harveys Team right by our side right until our home sold."


"Excellent, easy and it was effortless to deal with Lee. There were few nuances to work through, especially around the title.

Lee was very helpful, easy to access and accommodated our requests in a short time. Being a first home buyer, dealing with someone like Lee was what we needed. We were kept up to date all the time, and we knew at all stages what we needed to do next, so it was easy to get things done quickly.

Highly recommend Lee."

Excellent Lee FIve Stars
We dealt with Lee Yao and he is an excellent agent throughout the entire process. He helped us focus on aspects that would generate interest from buyers, which was a huge help. Once we were on the market, everything was seamless, and our home sold within one month. He is a remarkable negotiator with a very personalized touch. Highly recommended!
