Craig's outstanding commitment to customer service and his caring and generous nature towards his clients and fellow staff and industry members alike, has elevated him to the highest levels of the industry since he joined Caporn Young in 2010.
Craig is a committed family man with three young children and comes to the company and the real estate industry following a successful 26-year career in the WA sporting industry.
His passion for sports saw him enter the industry as an agent with Adidas before moving into the sales and management arena as the director of local retailer Sports Fever for more than a decade.
Craig decided to enter the real estate industry as a sales consultant with Caporn Young in 2010, building on his extensive sales and negotiating experience and his outstanding reputation for honesty and integrity.
He has developed a strong personal and professional network throughout the Perth metropolitan area and has garnered an extensive reputation for his ability to sell across all areas and price levels.

He is involved in the Wembley Junior Football and Cricket Clubs, actively supports the West Leederville Primary School P&C, where his three children are currently at school, and is passionate about raising funds for children affected by Cancer.
He believes his job is about the people he deals with every day and about treating them with the utmost respect and care during what can sometimes be a stressful and demanding situation.
It is this approach that has seen him become one of Caporn Young and the state's most successful agents in a relatively short period and has endeared him to all those who come in contact with him.

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...
You have a very good man, in Craig Gaspar, working for you and advancing the brand of Caporn Young. Craig recently worked with our family on the sale of our Mother’s home in Daglish.
He gave great advice regarding the approach we should take and how the house should be presented. Craig set a timeframe for the marketing and sale and hit every milestone. The result and the experience exceeded our expectations and was achieved in a fashion that removed all stress for the family.
Craig has a very personal approach to his work. He makes you feel like you are the only client he has. Everything about his service is exceptional, from his initial advice to the on going progress reports through to the sale and settlement.
I would recommend Craig to anyone looking to sell a property in our district.
Please pass on our thanks to Craig and to the support staff in your office. I will personally thank Craig over the next week or so.
Craig strikes me as someone who could do all manner of things but he chooses real estate sales because he loves it. Luckily for us, he's really good at it, too. An outstanding communicator, he gives an honest and focussed assessment of the property, the market and the best strategy. No nasty surprises part-way through a sales campaign. His local knowledge is second to none and he is genuinely interested in the local areas he sells in - he lives there too.
I thought that if you have a good property in a good location it should just sell itself, and it was only after a poor experience with another agent that I realised all the things that a capable agent does - that makes you feel they have the situation in hand and you can sit back and let the process run its course without stress. Craig considered price, but also considered my other priorities - a quick sale in a quiet market, that my property was respected as a cherished family home, and that I wasn't interrupted by buyers without real interest in or capacity to buy my home. He came into a difficult situation and got a result, all with good humour and good grace. That mattered. Amanda, West Leederville.
Craig and Stephanie have been fantastic. I will be recommending CY. I hope though that we won’t be moving again for a while!!!
We appreciate the excellent service from Craig, Stephanie and Sarah.
Craig's professional and friendly manner made the whole process of purchasing our new home a positive experience. Craig was always available to answer any questions and offer advice. He couldn't have been more helpful.
I have to say we would not have got the outcome we got without the efforts of Craig. I'm very impressed with the way he handled everything and engineered the final offer we received.
I would like to thank Craig Gaspar for his recent dealings with myself as Power of Attorney holder for my parents in relation to the recent sale of their former home. Craig was very approachable, open and friendly, as well as ready to answer any queries I had. He kept me fully informed of the process and gave me a list of home open dates and times and also of the various expressions of interest he had received. Craig ably assisted in setting a reserve price for the auction and was very efficient in all matters relating to it. He handled everything to my satisfaction. I would like also to commend Craig for his non pressured approach and for always being a thorough gentleman. I would recommend his services to anyone who asked me in the future. Well done Craig and thank you very much.
Once again Caporn Young have done a first class job. Thanks to Craig Gaspar and Stephanie Taylor, the sale of my friend's property was done professionally and with empathy. The auction was well attended by genuine buyers and an excellent sale price was achieved. Thank you Craig for all your support during this difficult time and for the great result. Well don and heartfelt thanks.
I hope this email finds you well and I just want to send you this quick email to say thank you to yourself and the team on the successful sale campaign and Auction of 314 Railway Parade West Leederville WA 6007.And i will state that it has been an absolute asset having you as the representative for such a sale as your attitude and professionalism was 11 out of 10 at all times during this rather delicate and emotional time as the home in question had been in the "Aird Family" for three generations so it was paramount to find such a person who not only had the family interest at heart but was also able to appreciate the heritage of the situation. And even though the final result wasn't what was anticipated at the end of the day it was still "SOLD AT AUCTION" Which I think we can at least can both agree was the primary objective of the day and it was achieved by your good self and Caporn Young's amazing Auctioneer Phil Hayes so after some quiet reflection i think a good job was done by all and taking into account all other factors that $820,000.00 was actually a rather fair result.Also it was so amazing that it was sold to someone who desires to restore and give it the love and attention that it deserves i feel in certain knowledge that even Nanna and Papa themselves would looking down and raising a cold glass of beer knowing the person who has bought their treasured family home it going return it to its full glory.So on the closing note of this email i personally would like to thank you for job you have done and so well your treasured asset to Caporn Young Real Estate and to the industry in the way raise the bar of excellence and commitment to your clients and in return you did me very proud and it was pleasure in aiding you to obtain this particular listing.Thank you for your time and patience and i wish you all the best for your future endeavors.
I met Craig Gaspar when I was searching for a house to buy. Six months later I decided to act on his advice to sell the house I was living in, before I bought a new house, rather than the other way around. This took an enormous leap of faith, but the rationale of being in a more competitive position to buy in my chosen suburb, which was still performing strongly despite a depressed market, was eventually persuasive. Craig offered genuine support throughout the process, from the early stages of preparing my house for sale, right through to Settlement. No matter how busy he was, he always made himself available when I needed him, and gave genuine consideration to all of my issues, both big and small, with thoughtful and empathetic advice. He even assisted with suggestions regarding interim accommodation for my family post-settlement. He then gave more of his time and energy in offering helpful guidance on prospective places I was looking at to buy, even though they were listed by other agents and he received no financial gain. Ultimately I had an offer accepted on a very desirable home in a perfect location, exceeding all of my expectations, precisely because I had (literally the day before) sold and settled my property. With a low-risk offer and the capacity to move quickly, my offer was accepted and our family took possession of and moved into our new home within three weeks. Even on last minute issues with the settlement of our new home, Craig still offered valuable advice and support. I am genuinely indebted to Craig Gaspar for going the distance with me through every step of what was sometimes a harrowing process, to transform my dearest hopes into reality. Craig Gaspar deserves acknowledgement for the dedication, genuineness and humanity that he brings to his work. He is in a class of his own.
I met 3 agents in Perth when I decided it was time to sell my mother's house. Craig's plain speaking won the day. I felt confident that Craig would get me the best result - which he did. His straightforward explanations regarding the process were invaluable to a novice like me. I felt fully supported through the whole process and was grateful for all his suggestions and his generosity of spirit, including to my long standing tenant. Anyone who chooses Craig to sell their property will be well served.
I really liked Craig as a person. I wish he was my neighbour.
I wish all at CapornYoung the very best and thank each and every person I dealt with at the Agency.
Thanks very much and good luck for the future.
Being knowledgeable and cognizant with the current trend of Real Estate Market, Mr Craig Gaspar is articulate and professional in dealing with clients and potential buyers. He has the ability to reassure clients that their properties would be sold with a good price in line with the current market. He has excellent communicative and interpersonal skills as he kept us updated with the progress during the whole sale process. He advised us to change strategies to meet the demands of potential buyers after a few home open. He emphasised on the importance of a good presentation of our house before home open with the assistance of a professional interior designer. He came across as very confident in what he is doing with a positive attitude. He has excellent negotiation power to convince the buyers to make good offers for us. Being very diligent and energetic, he worked tirelessly for us to close the deal even at midnight . He sold our house in two and half weeks. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and relatives who are looking for a good agent to sell their houses. Craig is an asset to Caporn Young Real Estate.
I recently bought a home in West Leederville, my first home in Australia after living overseas for 15 years. From the first time I saw the property I found Craig Gaspar to have the unique combination of being ethical, professional and genuine. As the purchase progressed, Craig demonstrated integrity and was a pleasure to deal with. I felt I could take him at his word and he stepped up to make sure that my needs as a client were met. The transaction went exceptionally smoothly and this was a credit to Craig. It is also nice to know too that he lives in the area. Whether you are a purchaser or seller I strongly recommend Caporn Young and especially Craig Gaspar.
We'd just like to say that you for all your help. You and your staff are amzaing and friendly. Thank you again!
Dear Craig and Mandy,
Today my mum (Rhonda Johns) is moving into the Beaumont. Although I did not get to meet you both, ( I arrived at the post sale drinks later) I would just like to thank you so much for everything your did to help our mum successfully sell 17 Vera St Cottesloe.
I know that following the loss of our dad, mum was truly blessed to be able to have the support of both of you throughout the marketing & auction process. By just being present, and reassuring her, you gave her the time & support she needed to make the transition to the next stage. She was very thrilled with the result and even more thrilled that the house was sold to farmers from the eastern wheat belt which is where both our mum & dad came from. Craig you even look like our dad!
Mum is extremely excited about moving today to her beautiful apartment and you helped to make that happen! From the bottom of my heart, my brother, my sister & I and our families are so grateful to you both. xxx
Fiona , Rob & Amber Kibblewhite.
John and Suzanne Felder recently bought a house and sold a house with Craig as our agent.
At all times we found Craig to be friendly, approachable, helpful, responsive and easy to deal with. His real estate acumen was excellent. His negotiation skills were also excellent being suggestive and not pushy or aggressive. Also his backup team (Zoe mostly) were very helpful.
We are very happy with the service we received and would recommend Craig and CY to others interested in real estate.
Reg and I were extremely impressed with our first interview with Craig regarding the possibility of selling our home. On his second visit Craig had done a report on the Embleton area which we thought very informative. From the time we signed up our house to sell Craig and his team were very professional in every aspect. We think this showed in the fact that Craig sold our home in 3 days (well above our reserved price). Also weeks before the set Auction date. Our son Rodney Cream recommended Craig from previous dealings.
David and I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for your efforts in helping us to purchase our very first home in Wembley. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with. You made buying a house that much easier, and stress free. We felt completely at ease whilst dealing with you, as you were so thorough, explained everything along the way, and no question went unanswered, nor any phone call. Anything we needed, you were there, and I can truly say you went above and beyond for us. We could not recommend you more highly, and we hope our paths cross again sometime in the future...
Thank you again Craig, David and Sarah Eaves.
Hi everyone, I hope you’re all gearing up for a big day on Sunday, weather looks like its to be a pleasant 27c so perfect fete weather you’d think, have we all read the fantastic one page full colour piece a parent at the School placed in the local weekly newspaper which gives a big push for our fete along with pictures of the last fete, many thanks to Craig Gaspar from Caporn Young Real Estate for this promotion and his past support such as the fully kitted out football jumper our Yr 6’s wear with pride in the InterSchool competitions each year.
I recently purchased 4/17 Haig Street, Tuart Hill through Craig Gaspar.
I cannot thank Craig Gaspar enough for all the help & guidance he gave me with the purchase of my first home. Despite coming from a real estate and settlements background, I still felt very clueless & Craig explained, and re-explained everything to me until I understood. He was very knowledgeable and always kept me informed every step of the way until my offer was accepted, and then guided me through what was in store for me next, giving me lots of tips & useful information. Whilst he was ultimately working for the Seller, I always felt as though Craig had my best interests at heart too.
Zoe Ware was also an outstanding help to me as well, always answering my (many!) questions so promptly and politely, and understanding that I was very new to the whole home buyer game.
I could not fault the service I was provided with by Craig & Zoe. I believe they are a huge asset to the Caporn Young team, and I look forward to dealing with them in the future.
The beautiful gift I received at settlement was a lovely touch & I can’t wait to pop the champagne & celebrate!
On behalf of my wife and I, I wanted to put forward how pleased we were with the result produced by Craig Gaspar on the sale of our home. After wasting several months with our prior agent and securing little to no interest we were able to realise a sale at our desired price after Craig’s efforts. Adding to that he was very easy to deal with on a personal level and we would happily engage him again.
I have been meaning to write to send my most sincere gratitude to you for selling my Leederville home. From the very beginning and throughout every stage of the process you were kind, thoughtful and proactive, and at all times incredibly professional. You came highly recommended from many people within the local community, and I now I understand why.
From our initial meeting, where you explained everything clearly and in great detail, and answered my many questions, right through to the day of settlement, you did everything you could to make the process as smooth as possible.
Selling a house is such a stressful time. You need someone on your side who will do everything possible to help through the stress, not to mention achieve the best possible outcome too. You did all this Craig and I am so appreciative. I have raved about you to everyone and would never hesitate to recommend you; in fact I think you have recently sold a friend’s home. If I ever sell again I will be calling you.
I cannot thank you enough Craig, and to Kate, Zoe, Sherin and all your team I am very, very grateful.
All the best,
We met Craig during the at times exciting, and at times long and arduous, process of hunting for our family home. We met lots of agents, saw lots of houses and so it went on. We were introduced to Craig midway through our "adventure", and instantly warmed to him. He was genuine, interested and listened to what we had to say about our needs and desires with respect to a house and home. He followed through time and again, and each house he showed us through was a little closer to the style we were after. Ultimately, Craig paid attention to our comments and kept working until he showed us the property that we happily now call home. We have the utmost respect for Craig's work ethic, but more importantly his ETHICS, and are happy to find ourselves in his neighbourhood. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Just to say that Craig has been fantastic. Never too busy to calm my nerves and made me feel special. I Highly recommend both Craig and Caporn Young to sell your home. Many thanks for a smooth sale. Judy Lubich
Craig has just sold 102A Woolwich St for us. We would like to recognise a very good job. From the time we first spoke with Craig, more than 12 months ago, he impressed us with his professionalism. He always knew what was going on, provided good advice and did what he said he would do - very good to work with. We know that he was working very hard to get the best deal for us, almost seeming disappointed when we accepted the deal! Thanks Peter and Julie
I wanted to take a moment to pass on my thanks and congratulations to your office for the exceptional service during the recent purchase of my new home and subsequent sale of my existing home. I purchased a property in Scarborough through Craig Caspar and was thrilled with the service and all the efforts during that process. I subsequently sold my property with Craig and it sold the first week! The whole process was handled extremely well. There were as always, some minor hiccups along the way, but Craig was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in all aspects and Sherin was a terrific support in the office. Not only that, all the associates Craig suggested along the way (Mortgage Broker, tradesmen, stylist etc) were exceptional in their advise and support, all contributing to a highly successful outcome. I have recommended Craig as a RE Agent to a number of people already, and the story of my success in both buying and selling has lead to a number of people following up with both Craig and his contacts. It is great to have a good news story of great service.
Hi Craig, just wanted to acknowledge your efforts in securing a good sale outcome for Mum's property She is very happy, so I am very happy! Your thoughtful approach put mum at ease. James, Ness adn I are extremely grateful someone of your integrity was managing the process. Best wishes and sincere thanks, Amanda Wheeler
Thanks so much for all your help and making our move so much easier. We appreciate Craig's and your professionalism and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Caporn Young to anyone requiring your services. Once again, a big Thanks to all concerned.
Just a short note to you to pass on my thanks to Craig for assisting with the purchase of 8/172 Bagot Rd, Subiaco. I have known Craig for a long time and with trust it was not hard to do business. You have a good asset in Craig.
Hi Patricia Thanks again for your assistance in helping with the sale of Austin Street. Very much appreciated for the work you put in with Craig.
Just a quick note to commend the excellent service provided to Cynthia and I by Craig and Pat. As you know, we bought our new house at auction via Craig and were so impressed by him that we asked him to sell our old house. Craig valued the house at the upper end of all estimates and achieved that price within 10 days of the house being on the market so we could not have been happier. We were also very pleased that Craig and Pat helped us with so many things after the sale that made the whole process as smooth as possible. I hope we never move again (!) but if we do we will call Craig. Thanks for everything.
Graeme & I would like to pass on our sincere gratitude and thanks for the efficient and professionalism Craig showed with the sale of our property at 16 Castle Rd, Woodlands. He is a real credit to your company consistently keeping us informed of all the different procedures during the settling of our property. He is extremely approachable and a real hard worker.
We would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone we no intending to sell their property.
Capon young is a very professional organisation.
Once again thanks for an awesome job Craig!
I'd like to complement you on your choice of sales staff. Craig sold our Leederville property for us which just settled on Fri. We were nothing but impressed with his attitude and professionalism yet approachable and friendly nature. We got the result we wanted and will definitely use him again in the future and recommend him to others.
I couldn't have asked for more from Craig as my real estate agent. He was friendly, professional and always had my requirements as his number one priority. He also achieved a great result in the sale of my apartment. I'd happily recommend him to anyone seeking to sell property in the Western Suburbs.
I am keen to let the management at Caporn Young know that I have been extremely happy with the way Craig handled the sale of my property, start to finish. I have been lightly involved with property transactions in the past but generally my late husband had been 'the man' dealing with all involved. It was with some reserve that I set about the task of marketing my property toward the end of last year. Right from day one I found Craig to be highly professional, yet with a personal friendly approach which made the process all the easier. Together with the team, under his recommendations, we set about the marketing of the unit. I found the visit from the stylist most helpful, in a practical and affordable way. I followed the stylists recommendations and leaned on Craig for suggestions for suitable tradespeople to carry out a few minor repairs. All was done very quickly and efficiently. I strongly believe these suggestions ultimately contributed heavily toward achieving our sale target. Craig set out the strategy, was very clear in what he was proposing and why, outlined costs and fees and went out of his way to get the paperwork/ conditions in place. I found him to be thorough and informative through all stages of the sale. As Craig is aware, the sale was under difficult circumstances but he handled the situation with outstanding honesty and integrity. I believe his qualities were also appreciated by the buyers. Craig was able to show upmost patience and respect when required and in contrast, complete urgency and efficiency toward other arrangements. Sadly, the settling became a disaster for me personally, but was on no account any fault of Craig's. He did everything possible in his power to rectify the situation, including liasing with the buyers, who thankfully were also to be commended on their patience and understanding, due I believe, mainly to Craig's efforts. If I am ever in the position to re-enter the property market, I would not hesitate to get in touch with Craig and similarly happily recommend him to friends. I hope you value Craig very highly at Caporn Young. I believe his qualities to be outstanding and that he will contribute heavily toward the success and reputation of your business. His efforts were well over and above what realistically I thought could be expected.
The sale of my property at 3/130 Keightey Road Shenton Park has just been finalised and feel compelled to write and let you know that the service I received from Craig Gaspar and Patricia Cheah and the extended team was outstanding. In the initial stages they worked to have the stylist, who was also extremely helpful, come to my home before I went away. They organised the photos and the first home open by appointment while I was away and by the time I got back Craig had an offer at the right price to present to me. Throughout the process through to settlement and after, Craig has kept me informed and in touch with proceedings. Pat has also done an amazing job of making the process feel both personal and worry free. I would have no hesitation in recommending Craig, Pat and the team at Caporn Young to friends and family.
Craig, master salesman, exceeded my expectations on price and time to contract. Pat, thanks for your support.
Thanks for all of your help Pat. Craig did a great job, no complaints, great to work with and I've told him personally.
Thank you very much for all your and Craig's help in purchasing our new home. We can't wait to move in this weekend! The whole process was so smooth and easy - thank you again.
I wish to thank Craig Gaspar and Patricia Cheah for their assistance in selling my late brother's property in South Perth. Unfortunately, I was given the task of taking control of my brother's estate, where Craig helped and assisted me with this very sensitive matter of selling the property due to very fond memories of my brother. Craig understood my family and my situation, and made selling the property very easy and keep myself up to date on all aspects of the sale, including pre-sale meeting, valuation, advertising, presentation and had a very good knowledge of the local property market. Craig gave me honest feedback from the home opens and assisted me greatly to achieve a high sale price for the property in a very deflated property market. I will be recommending Craig and your office to my family and friends. Once again, I thank Craig, Patricia and back office staff at Caporn Young - Claremont for your great service.
I would like to thank you for your efforts in the purchase of 20 Marapana Rd by Pauline and myself. It was a pleasure dealing with you. I will most definitely recommend, and will myself deal again with you for future real-estate. I know, justly or unjustly, integrity and honesty can be somewhat of a rare commodity in the sales industry, but most certainly not with you. Much appreciated.
We decided to use Craig Gasper when selling our rental property as his professionalism combined with Caporn Young’s unique methodology really stood out compared to other agents we approached. We thought this was very important given the market was flat and we needed something to differentiate our property. It certainly worked and all the front end work paid off when we received multiple offers on our property during the first week of listing and promptly sold it shortly thereafter – at a price that was a pleasant surprise. We would certainly recommend Craig and Caporn & Young to anyone looking to sell their property.
We wish to thank you for the competent manner in which the purchase of 17a Scalby Street Scarborough was conducted. We felt Craig gave us exceptional service, we would not hesitate in recommending His services to anyone needing a Real Estate Agent. John and Patricia Cochran
You are the only real estate agent who has ever been civil to me in one and half years of house hunting. Thank you for going above & beyond to make the process smooth and as close to stress free. It was a pleasure to work with you. Regards, Melanie
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
Now that we are actually across the line with this, I would you like to pass on both Cathy's and my own genuine appreciation as to how you and your team managed the sale of our property... put simply, a very professional approach from start to finish, With regards the actual sale value achieved, again Cathy and I are (all this considered) not unhappy as to where this ended up, moreover we would also like you to know that we did appreciate your unbiased counsel during the O & A process, during which at no point in time did we feel that we were under any pressure to make a quick and "easy".... the final sale amount we were certainly happy with and that you and your team should feel justly proud of same in the current market. Our thanks once again to all concerned.
