Ray White Commercial WA is continuing to grow its team, adding a new depth of knowledge and experience with well known commercial property expert Luke Pavlos joining the team to lead the WA leasing division.
With 20 years commercial property experience, real estate is in Mr Pavlos’ blood.
His father (the late Jim Pavlos) was a well-known Perth real estate agent who opened his own agency in the early 1980s.
“As a kid I remember helping to put up signs and attending home opens and so on, it was just part of the weekend, I didn’t know anything different,” Mr Pavlos said.
“It wasn’t until I finished high school that I thought I’d venture into the industry myself.”
Mr Pavlos studied Property and Marketing at Curtin University and secured a job at the Valuer General’s office upon graduating, where he also obtained his valuer’s license.
“It was there that I grew a passion for commercial property, and when I obtained my licensed moved to the private sector to further to challenge myself and grow my skill set in the industry,” Mr Pavlos said.
“I worked in both metropolitan and country town markets where I was exposed to a diverse range of property including office, industrial, hotels, shopping centres, engobo land and even valued whole towns including Kalgoorlie, Karratha and Port Headland.
“I’ve been actively involved in commercial property for 20 years, with 15 years as a commercial agent, and have worked on a diverse range of asset classes (primarily CBD) for a broad range of local, national and international clients.
“My passion and expertise is in CBD office leasing and sale of offices and commercial development sites.”
Mr Pavlos will be working for Ray White Commercial WA as the head of its office leasing division whilst adding strength to the CBD capital markets team.
Ray White Commercial WA joint-director Stephen Harrison said Mr Pavlos was the perfect addition to the team.
“Luke is well known and well regarded for his office leasing results and is an expert in the field,” Mr Harrison said.
“We’re extremely excited to have him, adding significant strength to our expertise in office, leasing, sales and management services for our clients.
“We’d been wanting Luke on the team for quite some time, his collegial attitude and client focused approach, fits well with our existing company culture and our strategy of employing the industry’s best of class.”
When he’s not working hard in the commercial real estate industry, Mr Pavlos likes to follow his passion for soccer and community engagement.
“I’m the president of a leading soccer club in Perth, which I’ve been doing now for about four years,” he said.
“We have over 500 participants including a semi-pro team that plays in the WA’s top flight National Premier League (NPL).
“I love giving back to the community and the soccer club provides a perfect platform to engage not only the soccer community but the greater community.
“We’ve hosted and supported some amazing events over the years and met some truly inspiring people along the way.
“Other than that, I love spending time with my family. We love nature, and spend a lot of time adventuring on the WA coast line.”
