Founder and Director of the Black Diamondz Group, Monika Tu is the Chinese-Australian executive renowned for leading the revolution of global buyers into the Australian property market. Holding numerous accolades, including the Hong Kong Business Association Success Story Award (2014), she was also named Top 10 Chinese Entrepreneurs in Australia at Parliament House (2016), and finalist for both REB’s Innovator of the Year and Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year (2018). She is highly regarded as Sydney’s number one real estate agent for luxury properties and a leading industry expert on the future of Australian real estate.
In 2009, Monika founded Black Diamondz Property Concierge after identifying a niche but burgeoning market of foreign buyers looking to settle in Australian properties. She primarily looks after ultra-high net worth Chinese buyers and bridges the gap between their lifestyle needs and what Australia has to offer.
Monika harnesses a unique and invaluable insight into the upper echelons of Chinese society. Her past experience and unmatched authority in China’s international business industry means that she understands better than anyone the subtleties of the Chinese mindset when it comes to housing, education and lifestyle. Aside from real estate, the Black Diamondz Property Concierge team also handles private school registration, decor and charity involvement; Black Diamondz HR Concierge sources recruitment for bilingual talents; and Black Diamondz PR & Marketing helps western companies develop innovative communication strategies for an eastern audience.
As a testament to her entrepreneurial talents, Monika sits at the advisory board of Laser Corporation, a multinational electronics vendor that she built and grew from a small corner shop in Surry Hills.
A passionate philanthropist, Monika was a top fundraiser for Vinnie’s 2018 CEO Sleepout and is a proud founding patron of the Global Women Leaders for ICRC, the International Committee of the Red Cross. She is also an ambassador for BMW Australia and FOMA, Fashions of Multicultural Australia.
