When asked how he built a business almost exclusively on referral and repeat clients, Michael's answer is simple: He's honest with people. He tells them what they need to know, not what they want to hear.... or what might make his job easier! It's this, along with outstanding service and communication, which has propelled Michael Mort's reputation in real estate over the last 15 years.
Acting as a trusted advisor, Michael provides knowledge, guidance and advice, as well as a good dash of patience and understanding during what can be an emotional time for his clients. All the while, he works diligently and thoroughly to ensure the very best result is achieved.
Michael is known in the industry as a quiet achiever. For 13 years, he directed one of the South West's leading real estate firms, and regularly set price records in the region. As testament to his expansive network of buyers in Perth and beyond, he also brokered many premium off-market sales over the years. In addition, Michael holds a current Triennial Certificate - one of the highest credentials available to real estate agents in WA.
After 20 years Down South, the Morts have returned to their “home turf” of Perth to be closer to their children, family and friends... and his favourite footy clubs! A former Subiaco WAFL player himself, Michael is looking forward to reacquainting with past players and supporters, and being involved with the club again.
Craig & Michael were fantastic and I'm stoked to have them on board for the sale. Really appreciate the hard work they put in to find a buyer.
About a year ago my wife and I started to consider selling our house in West Leederville and moving into something better suited to our family lifestyle. We started talking to agents in the area at home opens and we met Craig and a number of other local agents. Naturally, once the word was out that we were prospective sellers, we were approached by a number of agents seeking the listing. Craig was known to us as the leading agent in the area, but it was not a fait accompli that we would go with him when the time came to sell. In fact, we nearly went with a female agent in the area who had impressed us. In the end however Craig's down to earth style, genuine nature and local knowledge led us to appoint him as our selling agent in late 2018. At all times Craig deal with us and our circumstances in a patient and compassionate manner. He understands that selling a family home can be a big decision and emotional time. He is also good at "getting the deal done" when the time came. We did not know Michael very well before our listing but we really appreciate his down to earth and calm approach to home opens and closing out the sale process. He has the ability to make people feel relaxed and we really warmed to him. In summary, we were very pleased with the professionalism and courtesy shown by Craig and Michael and would definitely recommend them to friends who were thinking of selling their home.
We wanted to write this email to let you know how happy and thankful we are following the sale of our old house and purchase of our new house. Craig and Michael did an incredible job and it was only through their hard work and passionate approach that we were able to make it happen. We’re now in our dream family home, only made possible because they were relentless. We made a quick fire decision to buy Nanson Street, and then had to sell Simper Street within 5 weeks – over xmas and in a tough market. And they did it!
We’re extremely grateful for everything they did, even after settlement of both properties. Craig and Michael were a seamless team and one we will highly recommend.
Please give them a pay rise?? …they deserve it!
We, along with our daughter Madeleine recently purchased a house in Wembley through your firm.
We dealt with your agents Craig Gaspar and Michael Mort. We would like to thank you on the service provided by these men. Craig initially handled the offer/acceptance well after which Michael took over. The transaction went smoothly despite us having to insist on strengthening of the roof frame at the house after the Building Inspection showed that the structural integrity was in question. This was handled with aplomb by Michael to our satisfaction and we were able to proceed to settlement. We appreciated being able to speak to Michael at almost any time with any concerns we had.
We commend them to you for their professional and prompt service at all times during the purchase.
It is with my genuine pleasure I write this testimonial.
As I had to navigate my new home purchase for my children and myself, it was a relief that I had Michael.
I loved my new home immensely and immediately.
Michael and Craig were very accommodating.
When I asked for a private viewing for my Mother and then my Children. This was easily accepted.
I respect this is annoying - attend home opens when offered.
Sometimes this is unachievable.
I rang them to set an appointment that suited us and they accommodated us - not what suited them.The negotiations to sale was smooth.We hit a major glitch when I was ready to settle- my funds transferred, however the seller was not in a position to settle with me.
This continued for 5 weeks.
Whilst I had possession it caused major anxiety for me.
Michael was my calming force.
He tried his upmost to lessen my worries.
He always took my calls - never “played ghost”.
I really appreciate this Michael.My new home has today just settled.
Phone calls of celebration received.
Email from the office.
I am so happy.
Thank you so very much.
My life begins...
I had the pleasure of dealing with Michael Mort and Nikki Gogan from Caporn Young with the purchase of my first property. Both agents were incredibly accessible and responsive with any query that I had. Professional and honest with their approach, I always had full faith that they had my best interests at heart.
Meeting with Michael a few days out from the auction added a lot of value to the scary process of purchasing a home, enabling us to come up with a plan that produced some piece of mind prior to the big day.
I would highly recommend Michael and Nikki for anyone looking to buy or sell in the Perth region
When we made the decision to sell Michael Mort was recommended to us. We arranged to meet Michael and we had an instant connection with him. He told us he would deliver a premium price and he did just that!
His feedback and communication was outstanding throughout the whole process.
We discussed selling our property with three agents and although they arrived a similar market estimates, we selected Michael Mort because we felt comfortable that he knew his business and judged him to be reliable and honest. The whole process went smoothly and our judgement of Michael proved accurate. He was honest and reliable throughout.
I would like to express how impressed we were with the way you achieved all our needs and the package of real estate services you provided for us. You acted with great sensitivity and understanding in interpreting our needs and were able to achieve an outcome in a gentlemanly way which leaves nothing to be desired. Your help is greatly appreciated and could not imagine a better person to help us achieve our aim.
Michael provided honest advice and a professional service keeping us updated on the progress of the sales campaign for our property and eventual settlement.
We would recommend Michael and his team and will be utilising his services in the future.
I would certainly recommend Michael Mort based on the experience that we had in selling our house. Selling your home (and buying a new one) is often a process with some emotional ups and downs. Michael was always a calm voice with a cool head that we could talk to when our emotions were running high. He was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. He showed very good judgement on when to "hold it straight" and have faith in the groundwork, the initial sales estimate and the sales work that he and his team had put in. The sales result was a success and we would recommend Michael to anyone.
Many thanks on handling the sale and settlement of our property so efficiently and speedily. I will recommend you in the future should any of my friends have property sales in the area.
Dear Michael,I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the assistance and efforts in both the sale and rental of our property. I appreciate the coordination efforts whilst I have been overseas.
We couldn`t have asked for better service when selling our unit. Michael Mort acted with integrity, efficiency, honesty and kept us up to date to the minute on everything from signing the offer and acceptance to the settlement. The team worked in sync with each other and it was always a pleasure coming into the office, where you instantly felt a part of something resembling a family.
I wanted to let you know that I think your incorporation of Social Media was a clever embracement of technology and certainly gives you a point of differentiation amongst your competitors.
