Kent Shay


Kent has been selling real estate for over 16 years. Starting at L.J Hooker Ballina, under the guidance of his father Michael Shay, he was able to learn what it takes to be a successful agent. The opportunity to help people purchase their dream home and working hard to exceed sellers expectations is a position that Kent takes very seriously.

In July 2003 when the company expanded to Lennox Head, Kent took the opportunity to become Licensee.

The Lennox office has a team of committed staff which Kent is very proud of both within the office and their efforts within the Lennox community.

Kent and his team have been our property managers, and sales agents. In all their positions, this office has showed us the most professional and honest conduct. Can't recommend them high enough.

Irene, Lennox Head

The first meeting and all subsequent meetings were attended by both Principals of the Lennox Head (Kent Shay) and Ballina offices (Michael Shay). The initial meeting was impressive with a thorough researched plan for our sale campaign for presentation and approval. Kent and Michael listened to our own concept plan with compassion and understanding. Our home was sold through the Lennox Head Agency and we highly recommend Kent Shay who is honest, reliable and the complete professional. His attention to detail and the care and curtesy he showed us was unique and we are very grateful for the smooth procedure from signing the sales agreement to sale settlement date.

Joan & Neville Budd, East Ballina NSW

I would recommend Kent for any house sale in the area - especially the 'top end' properties which he has a lot of experience and contacts that are relevant for this market. I appreciated that Kent listened to all my thoughts and ideas for the sale and worked closely with me all the way through to achieve the sale.

Kay Johnson Lennox Head

Kent was very professional in all aspects of the sale of our home. We were actually overseas for the first few opens and he was respectful of our home and we trusted him with the coordination of the open homes. We would not hesitate in recommending Kent for this important role.

Dan McCabe Fernleigh

Kent Shay has always been very professional in his role as our selling agent. He always kept us well-informed on the progress of our sale, was readily available and approachable and made the whole selling process stress free for us.

Tony Bindon

Kent conducted himself in a professional calm manner. He is very knowledgeable of the market and was considerate of my needs. Selling my property while residing in Canada was a daunting task but I knew it was in good hands and he would get it done. I was right.
