Nest Realty remains one of the go-to real estate agencies in Perth, WA. Our success is directly linked to the skills and service of our team – headed by owners and agents Vasco and Lorraine.
With a broad and varied career across most areas of the real estate industry, the thing that Vasco loves most is helping people make their next move.
When did Vasco’s real estate journey start?
Vasco came to the real estate industry after 22 years in sales and marketing with 12 years as a small business owner. His interest in real estate goes back to when he was a 20-year old and bought his first property in Bicton, WA. Since then, Vasco has renovated homes, owned investment properties and completed a suburban subdivision as well as having built his own designer home.
An Award-winning Local Agent
Vasco has been an award-winning agent with two international agencies. To add to his career experience and skill, Vasco holds a Diploma in Property as well as being a Licensed Auctioneer.
Vasco has been the Sales Manager of a large independent agency and has now owned and operated two different agencies, including Nest Realty. His past industry experience enables him to specialise in property sales, achieving great results for his clients.
“I’ve created Nest Realty as an independent office with connections to industry leading systems and processes to enable us to work effectively and efficiently, giving our clients a world-class experience at a very local and personal level.
I have lived in Bicton since 1984. I grew up locally, went to East Fremantle Primary School then onto John Curtin SHS. Both my sons went to Bicton Primary school. I’m interested in fitness and attend the gym and cycle regularly. I have been a keen ‘hobby’ photographer since I was 12 years old when my older brother bought a camera and allowed me to use it.”
Lorraine is a real estate agent who is passionate about helping clients build security and be a part of their community. She helps families, individuals and investors find real estate solutions that echo their aspirations, goals and lifestyle.
When did Lorraine’s real estate journey start?
Lorraine’s background as an early-years teacher in the UK serves as the foundation for her well-honed communication skills. When her family relocated to Australia a change of career beckoned as her passion for interior design ignited her interest in real estate and that’s when her new profession took off.
Two years into her real estate journey, Lorraine was recognised and awarded as the top selling sales representative in Western Australia with an international franchise group. When they offered her the opportunity to buy the business in 2014, she didn’t hesitate to dive into the world of business ownership.
Seven years on, the desire to better serve her clients has seen Lorraine join with Vasco at Nest Realty, an independent office with connections to industry leading systems and processes which enables Lorraine to work effectively and efficiently, giving our clients a world-class experience at a very local and personal level.
What challenges does Lorraine face in the industry?
Real estate business ownership isn’t any different from owning other types of business. It comes with various challenges. Specifically, Lorraine has learned how tough the market conditions can be and how diverse buyer demands are. However, she consistently demonstrates her ability to weather any storm.
During her first few years of business ownership, Lorraine had to deal with the worst property market conditions that WA had witnessed in three decades. But she remained resilient and determined to deliver results. Fast forward to 2021 and she has learned to adapt and innovate for smooth business transactions.
Lorraine believes the home is where the heart is. This principle has guided her throughout her real estate journey. It motivates her to help clients secure their dream home.
