In a bid to expand its real estate offering, Laing+Simmons Young Property has introduced a new boat brokering service into the fold.
The new boat brokering service, Laing+Simmons Young Marine, will be headed by husband and wife team Matthew and Amy Young, who also leads Young Property.
The pair is looking to maximise opportunities at their business’s location in the Careel Bay Marina, and so have decided to marry their passion and experience in both real estate and sailing.
Coming from a multi-generational sailing family on Pittwater, Mr Young said he has spent years racing and cruising yachts around the world.
He commented: “This is an opportunity to combine passion with experience in a way that enables us to provide a wider range of services to our core clientele.
“The unique community we’re part of in Pittwater means there are real synergies between our real estate business and boat brokering services, as the vast majority of local boat owners own property locally, too.
“We can’t wait to meet even more local people and become more deeply embedded in the Pittwater community.”
Ultimately, Ms Young believes that the expansion of Young Property to sea is a “natural evolution” for their business.
“The Pittwater foreshore is our core market, so a complementary boat brokering service makes sense, particularly given our Careel Bay Marina location,” she noted.
Laing+Simmons Young Marine is the latest addition to the array of services provided by Laing+Simmons Young Property, which currently operates at the recently launched The Studio in Careel Bay Marina.
Apart from being the company’s office, The Studio also stands as a community-focused hybrid creative space, which allows the agency to feature exhibitions of different local artists on a monthly basis in support of local community groups and charities.
Among the beneficiaries of The Studio are One Eighty, Dreams2Live4, Living Ocean and the Seabin Project.
