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 18 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.
Can I say that I have never experienced such a comprehensive, customer focused approach from any agency in my experience over several transactions.
Tim came as a recommendation and I am so pleased that he and Michael were able to assist us.
Tim will certainly be getting my call when I decide to move property.
Caporn Young and in particular Michael Mort were absolutely exceptional. We considered other local West Leederville specialists but found Michael's attention to detail, professionalism and warmth compelling. At the end of the day the real proof of whether our decision to use Caporn Young was good or not was in the final experience of the sale. So the home sold within the month during Covid19, for a price that met our expectations and our engagement with Michael and his team was first-class throughout. We already have recommended Michael to friends and associates and believe anyone engaging him to sell their home will be as delighted as we are.
Michael was very kind and helpful! Knew the property very well and presented it beautifully!
It was an absolute pleasure to have Michael represent our property. Michael is a true gentleman, who handled the sale of our apartment in a calm and professional manner. I only had the pleasure of engaging with Melissa via email, but she too was lovely to work with and clearly an asset to your team.
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Michael, Melissa and the team at Caporn Young. While selling our apartment, Michael demonstrated a level of professionalism, integrity and attention to detail second to none. He was genuinely helpful, attentive and kept us updated with events as they arose. Highly recommend. Thank you Michael.
I chose Caporn Young because of an Auction I had attended previously that they conducted and I was so impressed at their professionalism. I have continued to be impressed as their client. Michael from Caporn Young has a calm, confident, professional manner. He was excellent at keeping me in the loop at every step and negotiating on our behalf to get us the best price possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone selling their house.
We think 6 Trillo is our perfect downsize home and our experience with Caporn Young has been exceptional. It was a whirlwind from skimming through the magazine to making an offer, when we were not actually in the market for buying a property! Michael was very professional and great to work with through the offer negotiations. Based on our purchase process we would feel confident to choose Caporn Young to sell our property in the future.
Hello Michael and team at Caporn young,
Just spent our first night in our new place apart from Brendan and I attempting to be removalists and a few minor injuries we finally have some furniture!
I honestly can’t thank Michael and the team for your professionalism and for making such a normally stressful experience so easy and seamless.
We are so grateful for everything and I’m so happy I pressured Brendan into the home opening that one Saturday. Such a pleasure dealing with you. Really can’t thank you enough for helping us with our next chapter.
Feel free to pop in anytime.
Thank you and Michael so much for everything! We are so pleased how everything went. Couldn't be happier. :)
I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to your company, and in particular, Michael Mort, for the successful sale of our property. Trust played a big part in our professional/personal relationship with Michael, throughout the selling process. From the first contact (a follow-up phone call after a brief encounter at a Home Open) we were impressed by his consummate professionalism; assured from the outset that we would be part of 'the team' that would result in a successful sale of our property and that proved correct. He was always available if we needed reassurance or had any queries. The plan, that he discussed with us in detail, resulted in the sale of our property after only one home open followed by a seamless transition to settlement. We will take every opportunity to recommend Michael.
We would like to only praise Michael Mort. He was always friendly and honest and never tried to take influence. We fully trusted him and he would be our number one choice to go to for selling a house.
Michael was professional and friendly from the start and supported me through the successful sale of my property. He engaged regularly to provide updates and went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. I would thoroughly recommend Michael Mort and Caporn Young to friends and family. I have had a great experience.
We just wanted to thank Michael Mort for managing the purchase of our lovely home at Colin Street, West Perth.
It was a pleasure to deal with Michael and his inclusivity and engagement throughout the whole journey with us during the sale process was excellent. We are very happy campers in our new home.
Would certainly deal with Michael again.
Michael Mort recently sold my apartment. Michael is a true professional, knowledgeable, honest, hard working, and extremely focused on achieving a positive outcome. I cannot thank him enough for his patience and expertise in navigating my sale. Being an outstanding communicator Michael is one of the gems in the real estate industry. He kept me up to date at all times, I was so lucky to have him on board.
An extremely satisfied customer.
I bought my first home by Michael Mort and my agent Michael is so good at his job and helped me a lot to make the whole process smooth from the beginning to the end or even after that. I am so lucky to meet him as my agent and strongly recommend to my friends as well.
Also, he came to help me after I settled down when I asked some questions in the property although it was Sunday! He knows how to help us and many people to help people like us. He organized everything for me and I don't think my friend's agent did it like him when they bought their house last year.
I will give 100+ points out of 100 in my satisfaction. Thank you so much Michael and Caporn Young should know that it is so lucky to have him!
We sold our house through Michael Mort and he was amazing. We couldn't be happier with his professionalism and service. When we sold, we weren't living in WA and he made the whole process so easy for us. He kept us updated for every single thing that happened and we never had to follow him up. It was easy to trust in his decisions, even though we never met face to face! Michael is exactly what you want in a real estate agent. He's practical and professional. Can't rate him highly enough. Thank you so much, Michael!
Just a quick note to say a belated Thank you to you and your team for the successful sale of 9a Kavanagh St Wembley.
We appreciated your dedication and efforts to help achieve a result we were pleased with.
We were impressed at your skill, level of service, professionalism and integrity throughout our selling process. Dealing with you and your team exceeded our high expectations, and we will certainly look at engaging you if we are to sell in the area again.
Thank you very much also for the lovely gifts!
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...
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.
