A true business veteran, with an understanding of sales spanning decades and global markets, Raymond Chu has found his calling in running a family operated business in Sydney, the city he has called home for 20 years. According to Raymond, the key to Golden Peak’s success is that the family he works with are “so close-knit. We communicate well and know exactly how to assist each other. All of us have solid work ethics and take accountability very seriously, helping us build a very strong family brand”.
Much of Raymond’s professional life was dedicated to running a textile business in Hong Kong, importation of fabrics from across Asia. Raymond relocated to Australia in 1997. In 2003, at the age of 48, he enjoyed six years of retirement, travelling and learning skills such as photography and Feng Shui.
Never having lost his keen sense for business, Raymond saw the opportunity to establish Golden Peak Property in 2013. Raymond identified Chatswood as a developing area attracting increasing demand from Chinese buyers. Raymond sought to use his experience in business dealings in Asia to establish sales opportunities and a strong network of local and international clientele with long-term interests in the area.
Raymond’s clients have benefitted enormously from his formidable negotiation skills and his commitment to going the extra mile to provide superior customer service and first-rate results.
Now one of Chatswood’s most highly respected sales agents, Raymond looks forward to overseeing how the next generation of his family will adapt to the challenges of a changing Sydney marketplace.
“I believe they are great business leaders who will continue to expand the business while retaining strong, independent family values we are known for”.

Commerical: GF / 16 The Centre, Forestville (Australia Post) 1F / 16 The Centre, Forestville (HelloWorld Travel Agency) Residential: 36 Claude Street, Chatswood 19 Nicholson Street, Crows Nest Dear Raymond, Colinna, Nino and Amelia, I write this testimonial to express how happy I am with Golden Peak Property. I am an owner of two commercial and two residential properties who had been unhappy with the poor service provided by a few other agencies – it was frustrating to chase for rent payment as an owner and I have to worry about late payments on outgoings from time to time. Over the weeks I transferred the properties for Golden Peak to manage, and now I do not have to worry about anything at all. I am always treated with respect and kindness. Raymond and his family go out of their ways to help with all my leasing needs. They are professional, responsible and do everything thoroughly. I had also witnessed Nino and Amelia’s attention to details when she did the inspection for one of houses. They truly give me that peace of mind that every owner should have! I will definitely look to and would recommend Golden Peak Property to friends for leases in the future.

24 July 2015 Hi Raymond, 感謝信我寫這一封信是要给你和你的公司一個肯定的表揚,從我九個月前踏足進入你公司位於Chatswood的open house 起,你给我改变了对Agents的看法,你的以客為先,盡心盡力及對双方(買方和賣方)的權益,都照顧得很週詳。並不以討好買方,以求達到賺取佣金為目的.這是在現今的社會上,很難得的一種表現.Raymond, 你是值得表揚的,願你的公司生意興隆,業務蒸蒸日上。

I can heartily recommend Raymond (and Golden Peak) as great people to entrust your investment property to and can attest to their sound management and taking great care of your property(ies). Thank you Raymond, Colinna and Amelia for your help, professionalism and courteousness.

2 October 2014 Re: Mr Raymond Chu, Golden Peak Properties It is my pleasure to be able to give an unhesitating endorsement of the Golden Peak Real Estate agency and its principal Mr. Raymond Chu.Raymond is a kind, warm engaging person and very capable businessman who is hard-working and determined. With these attributes, and with his language skills and cultural understanding, he was able to develop the rapport with the purchaser of my property that got the sale over the line.Raymond and his agency were able to get a good price for my property is less than half the time it took for a much larger multi-list agency to flounder and fail.Raymond’s approach was to be open, frank and honest with potential purchasers enabling him to be able to highlight the many advantages of the property as well as acknowledging the limitations.This engendered trust and confidence, in the potential purchasers.Raymond, unlike several agencies I had explored, was prepared to listen to, and follow a preferred marketing strategy. He also offered excellent rates. He kept me up to date with progress in the marketing of the property and worked hard to achieve its successful sale.We are very grateful to Raymond and would not hesitate to engage his services in the future.
