"Dear Jason & Brendan,
I would like to thank you both and your team for your outstanding work with the off-market sale of 7-9 Burns Street & 97-99 Swann Road Taringa. We were very impressed with the sale price of $5,000,000 given the current economy. Both Brendan and Jason went above and beyond using their networks to source the buyers for the site.
I believe your understanding and knowledge of the property, attention to detail and your professionalism were key to the success that we achieved. Most importantly your genuine nature was recognised and appreciated.
Your negotiation skills ensured that the best value was reached while you persevered with every prospect. Jason & Brendan simplified the process and we would recommend the Colliers Sites Sales team to our business networks and look forward to working with them again in the future."

"My family and I have had the pleasure of working with Jason for a few years now. After the great results he got for my brother on his development site I contacted him directly. The site I gave him to sell had some challenges not to mention the change in the market but even with these obstacles Jason and his team worked relentlessly to get the results he promised. His knowledge of the development market and extensive experience helped to deliver a swift and smooth settlement. Also most impressively Jason would follow up every stage of the contract and took the initiative to personally oversee and provide very helpful feedback on any issues that came up."
"We would like to thank Jason and Brendan for their outstanding work with the sale of Carl St, Woolloongabba. Given the depressed state of the market they went above and beyond and used their networks to source the buyers for the site.
Their knowledge of the property market as well as their experience in marketing developments sites assisted us in understanding the prevailing local market conditions as we are based interstate. Jason & Brendan simplified the process and we would recommend Jason & Brendan to our business networks, and look forward to working with them again in the future."
"We have known Jason for one year now and all of our dealings with him have been outstanding. Jason is a professional and a highly motivated person who goes out of his way to give you answers on anything that we have asked. It has been our pleasure to deal with him, he is friendly and easy going and we could not have asked for any better service. We would like to say a big thank you and we wish Jason all the very best for the future."

Testimonial – M Sieters, Hemmant
"We sold our acreage property though Jason Dao of Colliers Brisbane. We had been fielding calls from various developers, and it became quite a stressful process, for my husband and I.
When we meet with Jason, he was always professional and direct with us. Jason never wasted time playing games, like other agents.
If there were any issues with site access or tenants, he was always reachable and kept us up to the date the whole way through the process.
I would recommend Jason and would use him again."
Thanks again M & M Sieters
“We worked with Jason on a very complicated and lengthy sale of residential land.
Jason has been very professional and knowledgeable in his field. Jason from Colliers International took every measure to ensure that our transaction went smoothly and seamlessly despite numerous setbacks and complications in the process. From finding the perfect buyer to getting the contract signed, Jason’s communication and attitude were extremely satisfying.
There wasn't any pretence, lies or a hard sell, just an honest approach in dealing with both parties. It is few and far between in the real estate industry.”

"We bought and sold our investment property through Jason and found him to be professional, honest and knowledgeable. His dedication shone through, and he worked hard to achieve the results we were after. During our lengthy settlement, he was helpful and kept us well informed every step of the way.
We look forward to working with him again in the future."

"The Colliers Brisbane Site Sales Team recently were instrumental in a recent major site acquisition of over 5Ha of infill residential land for a subdivision on behalf of EkkoPoint Properties.
I would like to personally thank Jason, Brendan and Adam from the Colliers sites sales team for their efforts and dedication in amalgamating nine different and sometimes dissident owners for a super lot sale. There was a wide range of challenges along the way that included timing, council planning and vendors.
The process took about nine months, and with the persistence of the Colliers team, we were able to overcome potential roadblocks and find a successful solution to progress forward. The Colliers team managed the acquisition process professionally and have exceeded my expectations and their after sales service is excellent, not be tempted to
‘take the commission and run’.
I am continuing to work closely with the site sales team on upcoming opportunities and won’t recommend their expertise and exceptional service as I want them to be exclusive to us."
EkkoPoint Properties Group
Thank you for your assistance with the sale of our property at 134 Francis Rd, Lawnton.
I believe your attention to detail and your professionalism were key to the success that we achieved. Most importantly your genuine and understanding nature was recognised and appreciated. Your negotiation skills ensured that the best value was reached while you persevered with every prospect. I would not hesitate to recommend your exceptional service to my family and friends."
Manach Pty Ltd
I would like to take the time to thank you for your effort in selling our property on Francis Rd. It was a pleasure working with you, and you made my life much easier with the work you did to secure a developer to buy my property.
I have had so many other real estates beating around the bush and not getting results. Once I gave you the job of selling my property I felt much at ease, as you’ve done all the hard work and you kept me in the loop of how progress was going, and it was very reassuring to feel comfortable with the sale of my property. I would highly recommend you to anybody who is interested in selling their property once again I thank you."

"To whom it may concern
My name is John Davidson, and I have recently retired from paid employment. I was the founder and for many years the principal of a prominent personnel recruitment company John Davidson & Associates Pty Ltd.
This is to certify that Jason Dao has recently acted for myself and my wife Christene Mary Davidson, during the sale of our property at Francis Rd Lawnton. This was a complex transaction with multiple property sales being drawn into a major property development. Jason exhibited both a high level of technical real estate skill and the demanding personal attributes to bring together the relevant parties and complete the deal. Some of these attributes include persistence, energy and timeliness. Jason was engaged across several developments, yet we were made to feel that he was exclusively seeing to our needs.
We recommend Jason to any person or organisation seeking to fast track a significant real estate sale or purchase. If further information on the skills of knowledge of Jason Dao are required please call the undersigned."
I would like this opportunity to say thank you once again for your time and effort expended on the sale of our land in Lawnton.4501.
The remarkable tenacity shown by you on numerous occasions when it looked like the deal would falter is a great trait that you have, and coupled with your energetic mannerism helped to convince both seller and buyer they were headed in the right direction. Once again on behalf of myself and wife Barbara, I thank you very much and would not hesitate to be involved with you in any future ventures we might have."
Barry and Barbara Beetson
"I would like to personally thank Jason Dao from the Colliers who had assisted me in securing an off-market land subdivision site close to the CBD. Jason identified a site in Hemmant that had recently gone through new zoning changes. He worked tirelessly to negotiate the sale of the land with the owner and reached an agreement that we were both happy with.
Jason has a good understanding of the development process as well as the Brisbane development site market which has been a benefit and a pleasure to deal with. He is very hardworking, and I find him extremely professional, honest and approachable.
I would be happy again to work with Jason to achieve a similar outcome for any future developments and work towards growing my company. Thank you"
Barry Evans - Estates Co. Pty Ltd
"I have been a small property developer since 2005 in three states - Perth, Sydney and SEQ and have completed more than $80 Million of my own property projects. One of my greatest frustrations in this industry is working with real estate agents who for the most part do not understand property development.
Jason is a rare gem that when I approached him about one of his development listings he actually working with me to bring the deal together. Specifically he was very swift at obtaining the Development Approval documentation and follow up the owner and their various consultants to answer my detailed questions to allow me to de-risk the purchase.
Jason went above and beyond in that he proactively assisted in the due diligence process and I have not encountered an agent especially in SEQ who has ever done that before. Most agents simply expect he developer-buyer to gather all the information themselves-to which I wonder why those agents think that they are deserving of a commission.
Jason on the other hand did invest his time in understanding the deal and the issues I needed to cover off to be able to buy his client's listing. This included creating an appropriate introduction to the owner to assist me in clarifying some issues with the project that were able to be resolved through mutual cooperation and communication.
Overall it was a pleasure to buy a development site through Jason and I would not hesitate to buy from Jason again. Indeed I have asked Jason to find me more sites and he does give me prior notice of his listings which I appreciate greatly.
I believe that Jason's proactivity allowed his client to sell their site at a premium price to me as we were able to de-risk many aspects of the purchase up front, for a win-win outcome. If you are buying or selling a development site you need to strongly consider working with Jason Dao. To me, Jason is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise jaded industry."
BG Developments QLD PTY LTD
"We were extremely pleased with Jason's attentiveness, communication, honesty and advice throughout the sale of our property. We were also impressed with his professionalism in keeping us informed of prospective buyer’s feedback and vendor reports. Jason was able to achieve a sale price with terms that we were more than happy with. We would definitely deal with Jason again when selling our next project or development site."
Dr. Kelly M.
"I couldn't recommend working with Jason highly enough. Communication was fantastic and he regularly kept us in the loop for the duration our property was on the market. We're really happy with the outcome and with Jason's hard work to make it happen. He's approachable, professional and we'd definitely use his services again."
