Australia’s best real estate agents have been revealed for 2021 – and they are NOT including the flashy, headstrong big guys selling multi-million dollar homes on social media.
The Real Estate Business website produced its annual list of the nation’s top home sellers, topped by Alex Phillips of Sydney, who sold more than $ 700 million worth of properties last year.
But Zed Nasheet – who produces epic marketing campaigns featuring private jets, Lamborghinis and Rolls-Royces to sell homes on Instagram in Melbourne – insists, âNo one makes more numbers than I do.
âIt’s physically, mentally impossible. I’m not in the top 100 – I’m definitely in the top 5. I have sold more real estate in Melbourne than anyone who has ever been. ‘
Australia’s best real estate agents have been revealed – and they do NOT include the flashy, brash big guys who sell multi-million dollar homes on social media like Zed Nasheet (pictured) who has a sign on his desk saying ‘Fucking shiny’ next to a model of his Lamborghini car
Mr Nasheet, 31, says he has sold more than $ 1.4 billion worth of goods in the past two years, including seven homes in 24 hours last Friday.
âI don’t even know who these awards are,â he told Daily Mail Australia. âAll of these numbers are wrong – that’s why I gave up on these things.
âWe are the most followed real estate brand in Australia. “
The founder of Zed Real Estate, who drives a $ 400,000 Lamborghini Huracan, insists his modern approach sets him apart from his rivals.

In addition to flashy video campaigns for her properties, her company has “liztings”, makes “zales” and applies “zold” stickers to their billboards.

âSuccess starts with doing things differently,â he says. âMy business is very different.

âIf it was in America we wouldn’t have stood out, but because we’re in Australia we don’t like innovation and change. Few agents like it.
âThe properties have to be sold properly. I just sold something for $ 2.35 million on Instagram. I sold something else for $ 10 million on Instagram.
“No other agent does, so I don’t need someone else to tell me the real estate business or that I have to be in the top 100.”
However, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, more traditional real estate agent Alex Phillips, 41, aims to become Australia’s top seller of billion-dollar-a-year homes.
Traditional real estate agent Alex Phillips, 41 (pictured) has been named Australia’s number one real estate agent for 2021 and aims to become Australia’s # 1 billion dollar a year home seller.
Over the past year, he’s sold four or five properties each week for more than $ 3.1 million each on average to secure first place on the list for the sixth consecutive year.
âI hope we get closer to a billion this year,â he told Daily Mail Australia. âI don’t see it as work. I love what I do and we are always improving.
âWe remain very affordable, easy to manage and not overdone. We may be number one, but we don’t act like that. We treat everyone the same.
His Woollahra-based company PPD – which saw sales increase 30% last year despite the pandemic – has avoided the brash social media campaign of some rivals.

“They are obviously doing their best and are our main competitors,” he admitted. âBut I don’t think Australians like it.
âI think that’s why a lot of people like us, because they’re wealthy people and don’t like it.
âA lot of people who have high net worth, you wouldn’t know what they’re doing or what they’re worth – and they want to deal with people who are alike.
âEverything we put on our social networks is sold property. “
Northern Beaches Sydney real estate agent Michael Clarke, 43, was once again a finalist to Mr Phillips on the Top 100 list, as he was last year.

‘Always the maid of honor! But I have number two, I have a wife and a young family, so I’m just happy to be on the list, âhe told Daily Mail Australia.
âManly has gone completely crazy over the past year or so. I’ve been in the industry for 16 years now and I’ve never seen anything like it. ‘
The Mercedes driving man is also taking a more conservative approach to sales and avoiding flashy social media campaigns from some rivals.
âThe reality is that some people’s social media profile matches their reality exactly – and some don’t,â he said.
Mr Clarke (pictured) takes a more conservative approach to sales and shuns the social media campaigns of his rivals. He added: “From my point of view. I prefer the numbers to speak ‘
‘From my point of view. I prefer the numbers to speak. You will never see me say it on social media. “Hey, this is the car I’m driving.”
âBut the reality is, whether I like it or not, people who don’t know me will judge the agent’s success by what they can see.
“This is one of the things that we have to be sensitive to – but we also have to make sure that we are not seen as too sighted.”
