Sales Associate

M: 0438 768 460          Ph: 07 3876 8226          E: meiling@byronyoneill.com

Originating from the city of Nanjing, Meiling is the youngest of six, and migrated to Australia with her husband and sons in 2000. For the last 10 years Meiling has excelled as a school teacher in Toowoomba, teaching early childhood learning, and founding a weekend school, to teach children her native language.

Following her ambitions, Meiling decided to undertake study for a full Real Estate Licence, as she wanted to challenge herself with a new career. Now a local in the Western Suburbs, Meiling is a respected member of the community, with her son attending the local Toowong college for Science, Mathematics and Technology.

Having met Meiling and her husband when they purchased their new property from me, I found her to be a very warm and caring person, who just wants to help others. Meiling has bought and sold many properties in Australia and she remembers the challenges her family often faced, “We wanted to make decisions with confidence, but we were often restricted by communication barriers.”

Meiling is combining her passion for property with her heritage, and hopes to help the Chinese community achieve their property dreams with confidence, offering an honest and approachable perspective.

Meiling’s kind-hearted personality and sincere nature transcend from many years of teaching, establishing her as a passionate sales associate who you may seeing running through the streets of Toowong.

We are excited to offer a new dynamic to the team, with Meilings’ translation services or should you simply wish to sell.
