With over 45 years of combined sales experience Tom and Natalie understand people and how to manage the sales process to achieve positive results for both seller and buyer. Team Clearly always strive for both happy seller and buyer, as they understand that the most successful sales are a result of all parties feeling pleased with the outcome.

Tom and Natalie were achieving awards in their first year in real estate. They have worked with International franchises, run their own successful business and understand the different styles of negotiating that comes with dealing with a multitude of nationalities. At one point they made it into the top 1% of agents out of 122,000 International Remax Agents. They have been successful in operating businesses in multiple locations both at home and abroad.

Tom and Natalie are multi award winners and successful business owners in their own right giving clients the advantage of having two skilled agents work with them to achieve optimum results.

They have travelled extensively and are an active part of the local community. Outside of real estate they spend their spare time with their family and friends, attending their sons football and cricket matches, practicing martial arts, keeping fit and supporting community events.

Tom and Natalie’s values include integrity, trust, loyalty, passion, persistence and action. They believe we have two ears and one mouth for a reason and understand that the most successful realtors are those that strive to understand their clients needs not just regurgitate data.

Tom and Natalie are team focused and keep their clients informed and involved every step of the way. Team Cleary like to deal in facts, and promise to communicate what you may need to know, when you need to know it: not just telling you what you want to hear. This way, together you can achieve the best possible result.

Blake Mitchell
Blake Mitchell (Property Consultant) P. 08 9451 2600 M. 0452 258 642

Blake completed his real estate qualifications and has been in the industry since 2019. As he is the youngest in the Mitchell clan, he would argue that he has been in the real estate industry since he was born, having been involved in robust real estate debates and discussions. He has proven himself honest, friendly, and professional in the time since joining RE/MAX Southern Stars and his clients love him! He is dogged in following up leads and finds it hard to take ‘no’ for an answer. An example of this is when he had a person who came through a Home Open, who dismissed the property, and Blake persuaded them to have another look… His persistence resulted in a very positive outcome with this person purchasing the property. Would you not want this determination on your side?

When you engage Blake to help you, rest assured that he will work his hardest to achieve a positive outcome for you!

Nick Pagano
Nick Pagano (Property Consultant) P. 08 9451 2600 M. 0402 390 303

Nick is very grateful for what he has… an amazing wife and two beautiful boys and lives in an understated home that is filled with screaming, shouting, playing and laughter, and that’s even before the kids wake up!

Coming from the UK, like many ‘Pomes’, he came seeking a different lifestyle. Moving from his rural village to Australia, was a big change, trading farms and forest, for beaches and the outback but he loved it. After exploring most of Australia (sorry South Australia, he’ll get there one day), he stumbled upon Perth and it felt right. A city that was not too big, not too busy, yet offered the lifestyle he was looking for. A clean, green city boasting great beaches, good food, a vibrant energy and always having something happening. It offered the right balance for what he was looking for. Although he’d studied Chem at Uni, it was always foretold that he would enter property. Being the son of an avid property flipper, from a young age he’d always been immersed in renovating and improving properties and at the age of 19 was already buying small projects and adding value. In 2011, he started his professional career in property sales and has never looked back. Working with real estate groups both in Australia and overseas he’s loved every bit of this exciting and at times challenging career. For him, what he loves about the industry is the feeling you get when you have the buyer excited to buy and the seller thrilled to sell, that’s when you know you’ve got it just right. Outside work, in the brief escapes from the family, you’ll find Nick at various places around Perth. Like all Brits, he loves football (soccer to you Aussies) and still plays regular five-a-side indoor football, he plays chess (badly) at the local club although he’d argue his skill level is improving, and much to the family’s displeasure has become one of those lyra wearing cyclist that we all love to hate.

Nick is a happy guy who genuinely loves what he does and would love to hear from you.
