In an economy with rising house prices, Knight Frank has paved its own path in the multi-billion-dollar prestige property market – and it’s only getting bigger.
A combined 35 years of experience has been added to the Australian team with the two new appointments of Shayne Harris – Partner and Head of Residential Australia, and Mark Manners – Partner and Head of Prestige Residential NSW.
Having led high performing teams across Australia’s prestige market, Shayne was responsible for the businesses selling more than A$1 billion of residential property across the eastern seaboard including selling 112 Wolsely Road in opulent Point Piper for A$37 million.
“As we head into 2020, the market is looking more positive than it has in some time, with property values, as well as buyer sentiment, on the way back up,” Shayne says. “The sharp price upturn in the mass market, particularly in Sydney during the final quarter of 2019 will see further strength and confidence in the prestige markets across the eastern seaboard.”
The Knight Frank team is further strengthened by Mark who embodies a unique understanding of consumer behavior and strategies to influence a buyer’s decision-making process while offering a genuine global database of international and expat buyers.
“The ability to introduce more highly qualified overseas buyers to compete on a property coupled with my expertise will give our clients an enhanced service offering designed to achieve in the highest possible result,” Mark says. “In the last 6 months we have sold over A$100,000,000 of prestige properties with an average sale price of A$11 million which is further evidence of the strength of our offering and the market in general.”
Former Head of Prestige Sales NSW Deborah Cullen will focus on her passion of listing and selling prestige lifestyle properties and leading brand partnerships.

As the prestige team expands, records have been hit. Agents Adam Ross and William Laing made the 4th sale above A$15 million in 5 months with the sale of 19 Shellcove Road in Kurraba Point, Sydney – a result of incredible interest from 5 different parties.
A magical north-east facing deep waterfront property in Northbridge, Sydney, is hoping to follow in the company’s successful footsteps.
Boasting a balcony, garden, swimming pool, expansive water views, secure parking, an abundance of natural light, timber floors, stone topped island gas kitchen and superb boatshed with power and water, 15 Minimbah Road is a water lovers paradise.
Offering a stunning lifestyle, the 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom waterside property, which is being auctioned by Mark, is truly breathtaking.
