About Us

About Us


Nguyen Real Estate provides a boutique, customer-focused, one-stop-shop for property owners, buyers, landlords and tenants. We provide all the professional real estate agency services you would expect such leasing, sales and property management services in Footscray and surrounding inner west suburbs.

What makes us different, however, is that we live and breathe the Footscray area. Before setting up the business, founder and director Kevin Nguyen spent a lot of time researching the local market and the requirements of property owners, buyers, landlords and renters in this multicultural and vibrant suburb.

As a result, he realised that the Footscray market was under-serviced when it came to finding a localised, professional real estate service. There was a large demand for real estate agents who could offer a specialised understanding of the area’s demographics. According to RP Data in 2006, 11% of the area’s population has a Vietnamese background, so Kevin’s Vietnamese heritage gives him a valuable insight into how to gain maximum market penetration.

Only 5km from the CBD, Footscray is experiencing rapid growth and Nguyen Real Estate is working alongside local builders and property developers on a range of exciting new projects. We’re also making our mark on the local auction scene, selling a penthouse in the heart of Footscray for a record price of $1,250,000 within 45 days.
