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.

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.

We would thoroughly recommend Kent Shay as he is very professional & has great communication skills. He sold our property with minimum disruption to the tenants as we had requested. Kent always let us know how the sale was progressing & was always respectful & polite. It was a pleasure to have Kent sell our property & he managed to make everything run smoothly.

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.

Craig Watson Vancouver Canada

We have had a long association with Kent Shay and his employees at Lennox Head. In all this time our relationship has been a happy and professional one with first grade service. At any time when communicating with Kent Shay or his 2ic Alisa Steel, and his other staff you know immediately you are not going to be "fobbed off". Their attention to detail in getting things right is always followed up in a courteous and happy manner. Information is obviously exchanged well between them, and acted upon. My husband Gavin and I have no hesitation in recommending Kent, Alisa and other staff to look after all aspects of your real estate affairs. Catherine & Gavin Clarke.

Catherine Clarke, Coolangatta

Kent suggested a price to list the property at that was a little higher than I thought we could get and he managed to sell for just under that price in a matter of days without advertising it was sold before we got that far. Kent and his staff are excellent to deal with and I would recommend them to anyone selling property in Lennox Head. I won't hesitate to contact them if in the future I need to purchase another property in Lennox.
