Ben recognised his passion for real estate at a very young age, undertaking a Bachelor of Building Construction and Property at the University of New South Wales. Ben has always believed in and loved realestate; it is his passion.
After successful completion of his Bachelor degree, Ben was employed by the public company Charter Hall, Australia’s Leading Property Funds Management and Development Company. Whilst employed by Charter Hall, he was responsible for the development of exclusive high end residential and large scale commercial properties within Sydney and Brisbane.
Ben left the corporate environment to pursue greater opportunities and engage his entrepreneurial skills. Ben’s desire to establish CohenHandler buyers agents stemmed from his passion for real estate, his entrepreneurial spirit, and his drive to engage with clients on a deeper level and maximise their satisfaction from a real estate transaction. Ben wanted to develop relationships that would endure more than a single transaction; he wanted longevity and trust with his relationships.
Simon has worked within the Sydney Real Estate market for 8 years. He has spent the majority of this time with the Ray White sales office in Double Bay, Sydney. At Ray White, Simon was consistently ranked within the top 5 sales agents within the office, ultimately achieving “Top 3%” of agents Australia wide. He consistently won awards as the company’s top income producer, and the office’s high achiever. Simon’s sales property profile covered properties valued between $1 million $30 million. In 2008, Simon achieved the highest price paid for an apartment in Sydney, as well as securing $22.5 million for a waterfront property; this same property still retains one of the area’s highest prices.
Throughout his time in the industry he has developed extensive networks; often facilitating sales prior to public listing, ensuring ultimate satisfaction for the buyer. Simon’s desire to establish CohenHandler buyers agents is from his belief that he has the knowledge, experience, capability and drive to provide a superior service to the market; a service the market is demanding, but is currently unavailable. He has the desire to develop a brand that the market associates with superior service, exceptional properties, and client trust and satisfaction.
My aim is to build long term, durable relationships with our clients – ensuring they enjoy the real estate process, access the properties that sell off-market and always pay the best price.
