Eighteen years ago Richard Young made a life altering decision. Having built a very successful career in the dynamic, demanding and fast paced world of London real estate, Richard knew that there was a better way to achieve premium results for property owners here in his home town of Perth.
So the seed of Caporn Young Estate Agents was planted and the goal was set: to build an agency where every challenge is embraced as an opportunity to excel and a team of proactive and visionary professionals who would work tirelessly to ensure that clients received the best advice, had the best experience and achieved the best result.
And how the Perth market has embraced the Caporn Young vision! With strategically placed offices in Claremont and Fremantle, servicing over 27 suburbs and their surrounding areas, Richard and his crack team of sales and leasing negotiators have built an agency that has become one of Australia's most innovative and respected real estate brands.
It is a proud principal and CEO who helms the 2019 team. The eighteenth year anniversary celebrations will no doubt be a fitting tribute to the man who had the vision, and who drives Caporn Young from success to success.
Richard now personally specializes in the 'CY Private' space. Specifically designed for sellers who do not want their homes opened to all and sundry, and buyers who like to keep their private affairs just that, private. This is a new sophisticated targeted method of achieving his clients' goals, along the lines of a private placement.
Richard was born in Western Australia, growing up enjoying the lifestyle of the Western suburbs. Richard attended Scotch College and the University of Western Australia.
A true disciple of every wonderful lifestyle pursuit beach side living affords, Richard can often be found swimming from Cottesloe to North Cottesloe and back, running along the beach or surfing at one of the many local breaks to recharge the batteries when not entrenched in the real estate market.

A wonderfully fluid, transparent and professional experience working with Richard throughout the purchase of our new home. We couldn't be happier, and highly recommend the entire team at Caporn Young.
I have had the good fortune of CEO Richard Young personally handling my mum's estate. Richard is a gentleman, a knowledgeable professional and he has been very attentive to me, to the detail of every clause of the somewhat convoluted offer contract. Richard has been very gentle, patient and caring because it is the last piece of my late mum and he empathises with the emotion of it. I can understand now why CY has the great reputation it has, because Richard is an exemplary leader. Both Aman and Chrissie assisted and gave me help as I needed it. Settlement is next week so I am sad yet grateful. Thank you Richard, Chrissie and Aman.
Both Robert and I would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Hayley and Richard for all their hard work and attention to detail in selling our house. We would highly recommend them to our family and friends and anybody else selling a house. The whole process has been very smooth and trouble-free.
I would just like to pay accolades to your Fremantle Office Team. My husband and self decided to sell had no idea where to go or where to begin someone recommended Steven Currie so I gave him a ring. Within 24 hours he was around to assess the house and next night he came back with Meg to go through the finer details and sign us up, this all begun on Tuesday 13 October and 8pm on Friday 23 October our house was sold. Dean and myself were just so impressed with the TEAM work that went into this sale. From Mary in the office that continually kept me in the loop either by email or text to Steven who got us off the ground to the wonderful Meg who tied up the deal for us. Everything went like clock work with as very little inconvenience to our daily lives. We want you to thank the team for such a wonderful effort and we have no hesitation in recommending your company. Congratulations on a great strategy!
We love Caporn Young! Your brilliant and kind advocacy of Starlight in CY Magazine is absolutely priceless at Christmas.
Thank you so much and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
Susan and all at Starlight.
Dear Richard, Mandy, Phil and Patricia, I felt a wonderful sense of completion selling the apartment yesterday and wished to sincerely thank you for your hard work and professionalism throughout the sales process. Achieving AU$700,00 was a satisfying result and I am very happy with the outcome. Its been great to meet you all, albeit from a distance! All the best Duncan
Thank you very much for the excellent service you provided in the selling of our unit. It was a pleasure to work with you at all times. This was very much appreciated at a time when we were very busy with our new baby. You have a rare combination of good business instincts, sensitivity and common sense. You achieved a fair deal for all parties concerned. We will not hesitate in recommending your services to our friends, family and acquaintances. Once again, thank you for making what could have been a stressful transaction and period, a very easy one.
On behalf of my family, we would like to offer you, and Caporn Young Claremont, our sincere thanks for the recent sale of my mother's property. We really valued your honest advice on what had to be done in order to get the best return in a short time frame. This was critical as the money from the sale was required for my mother's new aged care facility. You exceeded our expectation of price, and we were highly impressed by your professional, courteous, and honest conduct. We especially appreciated the continuous feedback you provided at each stage of the process. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to others. Keep up the fantastic work!!
It gives us great pleasure to write this letter to express our gratitude for your outstanding work when selling our investment property. After our property had been on the market for 9 months it was a huge relief when we finally chatted with you. We had finally found someone who genuinely listened to our needs and then presented a tailored strategy to reinvent our property in the marketplace. Once we gave you the go ahead, we were amazed at how swiftly you sprang into action putting together a checklist of things that needed doing before relaunching our property which included the dismantling of an asbestos shed. You went beyond the call of duty a number of times. We were highly impressed when you arranged an extra labour worker from the local backpacker hostel to assist with numerous duties. Before we knew it we had several genuine buyers at a private inspection and an offer on our table before we were officially on the market. It had to be the fastest most stress free sale I have been though. On top of that, the price achieved far exceeded our expectations. We believe this fantastic result is all to do with your sincere, professional and unique approach to marketing properties and negotiating sales. We can confidently recommend you to anyone thinking of selling their property and would like to thank you again for this outstanding performance.
Just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks to you and your team on a job well done. It is always a pleasure doing business with Caporn Young and the professionalism of your time is greatly appreciated. Your business has made the usually traumatic time of having one's home on the market a pleasant and exciting experience and the results particularly this time have been fantastic. Once again thanks for the professionalism, flexibility and efficiency of your staff and my personal thanks to you for inspiring them!
Congratulations on your excellent marketing plan and your wonderful personality, we are very happy and grateful we chose you to market our property. You achieved everything you promised and gained an excellent reputation becoming the #1 agent in the area for gaining one of the highest prices paid for a property in the area. We are very fortunate and we wouldn't hesitate to engage you again if the need arose. Once again a huge thank you.
From our initial meeting right through to settlement you personally gave us nothing but the highest level of service we have experienced to date, both in Australia and UK, when selling or buying property. We felt that you treated our opinions and concerns with respect and that your promises of keeping us fully informed and involved in the marketing and negotiating process were genuine. We at no point felt neglected or ill informed and in fact were absolutely thrilled with your constant and very thorough feedback and communication overall. You were an absolute delight to do business with.
From the setting of the price, the selling of the property, which to our surprise was in hours rather than weeks and at a price greater than was advertised, we could not have asked for more.
I want to thank you for you the manner in which you dealt with our Real Estate needs in these past months. Your consideration for us at all times was greatly appreciated. Your ethical standards are a credit to you and your company.
Maggie and I wanted to tell you how impressed we were with your handling of the sale of our home. You produced an impressive array of interested potential purchasers and then executed the sale with exemplary efficiency, speed and courtesy.
My sister and I thought you did a marvelous job in what turned out to be trying circumstances, with our tenant not really tuned in to making access easy for you and prospective buyers. We believe you handled the entire sale process efficiently and with a minimum of stress and we appreciated the way you always kept in touch and brought us up to date with progress and negotiations.
I must compliment you on the service during our search for a Perth property. We dragged you from pillar to post for looking for the right house and you were never anything less than entirely helpful. Once we had decided on Swanbourne you kept us constantly updated on the state of play. Being on the other side of the country, this was very reassuring. You set a high standard.
I know Susie has already thanked you, but I wanted to add my thanks, for the gift you sent to Noosa for us. We found working with you and your team to be a real pleasure, and we thank you all for your efforts. Your company from my point of view is a benchmark for customer service and ethical behaviour, and I would gladly recommend you to others.
What a fantastic surprise it was yesterday to have delivered to us such wonderful gifts! I have never seen so many chocolates let alone so beautifully formed into this huge bouquet, & immediately photographed & sent to David. And the bottle of Veuve - our cup well & truly runneth over! Thank you so very much for such a wonderful gift -totally undeserved on our part & it is we who should be doing that for you. We are so very grateful for your brilliant marketing of our property -such difficult one & in such a tricky market. We so very much appreciated your unwavering professionalism & great skills, as well as patience every time I got a bit shaky about the set-backs. Your advice was always spot-on & realised in getting the successful sale. Such a relief! I have also particularly appreciated the constant cheerful & very competent support from Pat Cheah -what an asset to your organisation, filled as it is already with such excellent people. Thank you once again, & to all the wonderful team. Brilliant work & very, very well done. Thank you!
A very big thank you to Stef, Richard, Tammy and Steve for such an enjoyable night out together on Wednesday night. It was an unexpected surprise for both Kevin and I , to receive such generosity and warmth, and we came away feeling very special. I'm not sure we deserved to be showered with gifts as well as delicious french champagne, but they are very much appreciated. Many thanks to each of you Kind regards Christine and Kevin
I wish to write and thank you and your staff for the sale of our home in Mt Claremont. I want to particularly mention, Craig Gaspar, his honest and friendly approach, professionalism and reliability are to be highly commended. I will certainly have no hesitation in recommending Caporn & Young and Craig to anyone seeing Real Estate Advice. Yours faithfully Tom O'Brien
Following the successful sale of our family home at 5 Napier Street, Nedlands in July this year, we’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you!
When we decided to sell earlier this year, we closely scrutinised and interviewed five leading real estate agents to find the agency to suit our requirements of integrity, professionalism, efficiency and in depth market knowledge. Right from the interview stage we were very impressed with your open nature and approach, and the clarity you displayed and demonstrated in explaining how you would go about selling our home; from establishment of a realistic price to the strategies you would employ to gather interest and finally negotiating methods to secure the sale.
Your service and attention during the process was excellent and your commercial astuteness in dealing with the interested parties was critical in securing the sale. Carmen and Tammy were excellent in the sales and administration roles; gathering
interested parties, preparing the home and displaying it in both openings and in the professional photographs. The ladies were always there to assist and answer our questions, and were very professional. We have since recommended you to friends and colleagues who have thought about selling their homes, a testament to your hard working and professional outfit.
We wish you the best in your business dealings. Thanks again for making the selling experience a pleasant one.
Mike and Fiona Stephenson
