More about Richard

The Captain of the CY Ship

Originally Perth born, bred and educated it was a baptism of fire that saw Richard commence his real estate career in London in 1988. A time when negative equity was a catch cry and it was easier for some to leave the keys to their home on the bank counter, tough times create resilience and determination. After several years as the top performing agent for Foxtons Estate Agents Richard returned to Perth in 1994 with a vision that ultimately materialised into Caporn Young.

The ability to flourish through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows with unstoppable determination, Caporn Young Estate Agents, with Richard at the helm is in 2021 celebrating 20 years of delivering clients property goals.

With a passion for property and a dedication to delivering unrivalled service, Richard, together with his specialist team of sales and leasing negotiators have built one of Australia's most innovative and respected real estate brands.

Today, Caporn Young is an agency renowned for providing trusted advice, a superior client experience and industry-leading results.

Richard has now shifted his focus to a niche market: high-end, multi-million dollar listings. Offering a new sophisticated targeted methods, it’s a space specifically designed for sellers who do not want their homes opened to all and sundry, and buyers who like to keep their private affairs just that.

When he’s not selling the unique beach or riverside lifestyle, Richard’s immersing in what London could not provide. With his 3 boys in tow, early morning swims from Cottesloe to North Cottesloe, surfing isolated reef breaks at Rottnest Island, or competitive sailing on the Swan River aboard ‘Wanderer’ are firmly on the agenda.
