A new buyers agency will soon open in Perth, and there are plans to shake up the local market, according to Sydney firm Cohen Handler.
Simon Cohen, a Sydney real estate agent and star of the reality TV show Luxe Listings Sydney, and Ryan Lobik, a North Fremantle resident, have their sights set on a “luxe” office between Cottesloe and Claremont.
“East coast buyers are now looking westward,” Mr Cohen said. “I think there’s no one doing anything like what we’re doing.” Mr Lobik has already been hard at work, securing two properties on behalf of clients.
In Cottesloe, 59 Lyons Street was sold for about $6million. The POST was taken on a home tour on the corner of North Street late last year. One of the sellers, a wellness health professional, said she wanted her home to be calming and induce a feeling of well-being.
Another purchase brokered by Mr Lobik was 89 Melvista Avenue, Nedlands, which went for $4.2million, property records show. Both homes went to local buyers, but Cohen Handler aims to buy homes for east coast clients as well.
