Scott started in property as a young lawyer in the 1990's (in Scotland where, yes, lawyers also perform the sales and negotiation roles!)
"At the time, we led the way in home staging by roasting coffee in the oven at open homes!"
"It's amazing how dramatically the landscape has changed in just 15 years: at McKenzie Wu we run a China Desk dedicated to attracting and transacting with Chinese buyers, and we use dedicated styling consultants and professional videographers as essential elements of every campaign, all paid for by us."
Scott's paramount guiding principle has remained constant throughout. "I'm hugely conscious that for most of us our homes are our largest financial asset. As such, the price we achieve when we sell them has a giant impact on the direction our lives take."
"Performing a key role in that process is a responsibility I take tremendously seriously. And it's that process of helping home owners move from one important stage of their life to the next that motivates and rewards me."
But selling your home can still be enjoyable!
"We carefully plan and project manage the entire process so clients feel relaxed and in control."
"This begins with me understanding your goals and timeframes, then providing a clear roadmap of how we'll achieve your goals so you're informed and in control every step-of-the-way. Daily communication throughout the entire sales process is key."
Having owned and managed a number of successful businesses, Scott recognises the importance of solid processes which ensure day-to-day operations at McKenzie Wu run smoothly.
"But equally important is constant innovation and the pursuit of doing things better which I actively encourage in our team to ensure our clients maintain a competitive edge in the property marketplace."
"It's the little innovations we've developed at McKenzie Wu - like carrying an inventory of artwork and furnishings we provide for free to clients to stage their homes - these are the things that, added together, really help make the difference."
Ultimately, property is about people and relationships.
"At heart we're a boutique agency but with a national presence and the industry-leading infrastructure provided by Eview Group. In my eyes, it's an unbeatable combination for us and our clients."
"I would value the opportunity to demonstrate how we can achieve your goals."

Scott and Lin provided exceptional customer service during the sale of our home. They were knowledgeable, punctual, very easy to work with and understood our personal circumstances. They certainly went the extra mile in every way, truly changing our view of contemporary real estate agents. We highly recommend this exceptionally hard working couple and urge serious sellers to consider this dynamic and professional duo.
This energetic and loving couple commit 100% to providing the smoothest experience possible. In addition to their professionalism (which was A1 grade), they really cared about who we are as people and went to unbelievable lengths to help with all sorts of things that were definitely not the responsibility of a real estate agent! In terms of outcome, perhaps what really sums it up is that I honestly feel they wouldn't have done anything differently if they were selling their own precious home. Thank you, Scott and Lin! You've been awesome!!!
Scott and Lin were an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process. Whilst they were not representing us (we were the buyer), throughout the process both Scott and Lin communicated exceptionally well with us and at all times we felt like we were dealing with a fair and reasonable counterparty. In my opinion, Scott and Lin have a unique and excellent approach to real estate and I would happily recommend them to anyone.
Scott has been the best Real Estate we have ever met. He takes your requirements into heart and helps to find you the best matching property in the market. He is very knowledgeable with every aspect of life in Brisbane. This helps us very much to settle in quickly as we came from Sydney just late last year. We have our highest regards for Scott and would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home.
“Thank you Scott for the wonderful service you provided when selling my house. You spent hours explaining all the legal complications and were on hand to help with any problems large or small which arose and made the transaction so smooth. Also your cheerfulness and kindness was deeply appreciated.
Scott McKenzie made selling our home stress free. With great communication skills, and knowledge of the market, he was able to negotiate an excellent result for us in record time. This is an agent who will go the extra mile. We do not hesitate to recommend Scott . Many thanks Alex and Peter
Buying a property is always going to involve additional demands in ones life so someone cheerful and approachable minimised the emotional demands of the process. Thank you Scott.
Scott and Lin are unusual within the Real Estate Industry. We have purchased and sold ten houses over the years and the worst part of the process is always dealing with Real Estate Agents. In contrast dealing with Scott and Lin was an unexpectedly delightful experience. They have integrity, they worked very hard to get the best deal managing the relationship so that both the seller and buyer were satisfied with the outcome. Scott handled the negotiation with great professionalism and we were impressed by his intelligence as he is obviously brings many qualities and skills normally lacking in this industry. They have integrity that is normally lacking in this industry as most agents are focused on a quick sale at a discounted sale price to maximize their income. Lin and Scott even offered assistance as required after the transaction was complete. We have no hesitation in recommending McKenzie Wu for your Real Estate needs.
From my first communication with Scott McKenzie to the sale of the property and beyond, Scott was the consummate professional. Scott and Lin are perfectionists and I felt right from the beginning that my property was in safe hands. Scott went over and beyond the call of duty in assisting me with the job of preparing the property for sale. His encouragement, patience and daily communications gave me a level of comfort that I haven't ever experienced before when buying or selling a property. McKenzie Wu also provide a Stylist as part of their service which I found particularly useful and which I followed to the letter thereby presenting my house in the best possible light. Scott and Lin are definitely a marvelous team who work hand in hand with the seller from beginning to end and offer an experience second to none.
As first home buyers the process of purchasing a house can be a bit daunting, but Scott was fantastic and stepped us through it all. Everything went smoothly, would highly recommend!
