King enlisted former AFL player turned buyers’ agent Jake Edwards to help him find the perfect property.
“He was struggling to secure something being so time poor so he reached out to me,” said Mr Edwards, who heads up buyers’ agency Edwards & Mills.
“He was pretty clear on what he wanted in regards to style.
“Being a boy from Melbourne he liked that modern contemporary Melbourne look but also that coastal boho vibe which is what is reflected in the property.”

“Properties in good locations are still selling really well.
“If you’ve got something with a few negatives or a bit further out from the Coast you’re having to do more work with the buyers.”
“There’s not as many buyers out there at the moment but there are still quality buyers.”
