Vasco Horta

Director / Licensee

An award-winning agent and Mount Pleasant local, Vasco’s passion for real estate was ignited when he purchased his first property in Bicton at the age of 20.

Amassing over three decades of sales and marketing experience, including twelve years as a small business owner, Vasco transitioned to real estate in 2006. His own experience in home renovations, property investment and development, and building a custom-designed home gave him a substantial grounding in his new career.

As a Licensed Auctioneer and Licensee, Vasco is skilled in residential and commercial property sales. Vasco has been the Sales Manager of a large independent agency and has owned and operated two agencies, including Nest Realty.

Together with Lorraine, Vasco created Nest Realty as an independent agency with connections to industry-leading systems and processes, enabling them to work effectively and efficiently. Providing clients with a world-class experience at a very local and personal level is Nest’s mission.

Not one to sit still, Vasco enjoys keeping fit. He’s an avid cyclist, often riding over 50km at a time. He’s also a keen ‘hobby’ photographer, discovering a creative flair for it at twelve years of age.

For a real estate experience with your best interests at heart, contact Vasco on 0417 947 324.

Lorraine Dove

Director / Sales Consultant

A mother of four adult children, and a new grandmother, Lorraine Dove believes that ‘home is where the heart is’. Family orientated and passionate about helping clients achieve their property goals, her surname inspired the business name ‘Nest Realty’.

“The word ‘nest’ is symbolic of the various life stages people go through, specifically in relation to their property journeys. Whether it’s ‘feathering your nest’, ‘building a nest’ or ‘flying the nest’, the term suggests security and comfort.” Lorraine explains.

Lorraine moved to Australia from England in 2007, having enjoyed previous careers in early-years teaching and as a croupier. A flair for interior design ignited Lorraine’s interest in Real Estate. She quickly excelled as a sales representative and progressed into business ownership in 2014, when she qualified as a Licensed Agent and became a franchisee of an international real estate brand.

Today, having experienced the peaks and troughs of Perth’s property market for over a decade, Lorraine remains passionate and committed to assisting buyers, sellers and landlords in their property journeys.

Partnering with Vasco Horta at Nest Realty since 2021, she looks forward to growing the business whilst maintaining the cosy feel and personal service she has always prided herself on.

For a professional, client-focused experience, contact Lorraine on 0466 322 633.

Kamal Mann

Sales Consultant

Intrepid traveller Kamal was a flight attendant and occasional model with Air India for many years. Her career took her to many exciting destinations, during which time she met numerous celebrities and dignitaries, including Bill Clinton.

Upon moving to Australia with her husband in 2013, Kamal commenced a career in retail, working as a brand ambassador for Myer. She had been interested in real estate for a long time; however, another career change wasn’t on the cards while trying for a family.

With the support of her family, Kamal completed her Real Estate Registration qualification in 2021 and joined the team at Nest Realty shortly after. Unlike the often-repetitive nature of retail, Kamal loves that there are constantly new experiences in Real Estate and loves the ‘kick’ of helping people achieve their individual property goals.

While Kamal’s young family and career keep her very busy, in her spare time she enjoys reading and travelling – particularly to mountainous destinations! She also makes time for a healthy lifestyle, including a nutritious diet and yoga.

Kamal looks forward to assisting you in your real estate journey; contact her on 0469 735 397.
