Alla Torgasheva
Senior Sales Consultant P. 0892756644 M. 0405125731

My journey in real estate began in May 2001. During my more than 20 years working in the industry, I have received numerous awards for excellence in real estate and have loved every year that I have been selling property.

I believe one of my greatest assets in my job is my focus on the needs of my clients. When people invite me into their homes to discuss the sale of their property, I concentrate on providing them with good, clean business advice and service.

In deciding on which real estate Agent you are going to select, the question you truly should ask is “how effective will the Agent be in getting the best price the market has to offer?”. Many Agents may tell you they can get the best price, but how many can provide this through their track record and previous dealings.

I am able to show you a growing list of testimonials from my previous Sellers who can provide my history of achieving excellent sale prices and caring service for my clients and I am truly excited about the prospect of helping you with the sale of your home or property.


Below are just 5 from over 44 Award Achievements for Alla:

1. REIWA Awards 16-20 Million Dollar Club
2. Top Salesperson (Ray White Whiteman & Associates)
3. 3rd Top Salesperson Number of Sales (Ray White Group)
4. 3rd Top Salesperson Settled Commission (Ray White Group)
5. REIWA Awards 10-15 Million Dollar Club


Alla’s ability to perfectly calculate the correct selling price of her listed properties has enabled her to not only obtain the best price for her clients, but also to ensure that she attains the sale of her listed properties in the quickest time possible. I rate Alla the best of the many Real Estate agents that I have worked with and I highly recommend her to prospective sellers of property.
In the competitive world of Real Estate it is hard to find honestly and integrity. But with Alla we never had cause to doubt her. Everything she promised us, she delivered.
Our house has been on the market for an extended period of time and we had several land agents attempt to sell it, unsuccessfully. It was the services provided by Alla that finally achieved the sale. From our first meeting, we were immediately impressed with her professional approach. It was her skill, experience, honesty and passion as a land agent which achieved the outcome others had been unable to deliver.
Colin and Georgia
Ms Torgashev is a consummate professional who has always conducted herself with the highest integrity. She has strong work ethic that extends to knowing her market and client suitability. She has consistently produced excellent results for us and we are delighted with having her represent us.
I first met Alla at an open house and I was immediately taken by her attitude and sincerity. I knew from that first meeting that I wanted her to sell my houses. She approaches everything with a professional manner and I wish her all the best in her future career.
Our Dianella property was sold at an excellent price before having an official home opening, due to Alla’s pre advertising. Alla was always thorough and well organised and so gave us the best possible advice and service available. She made herself accessible at all times for any questions or concerns that arose and always provided follow-up information. Alla comes with our highest regard and recommendation.
Des and Jan
The selling of our homes was a new venture for us. Alla steered us through it; she answered our questions, assured us of things we needed to do and stood by us when we were less than sure. And she did all this in a way which kept us free – our sense was of a consecrate and careful property consultant.
Jan and David
I first met Alla when my partner and I were looking at some villas in Balga which were open for inspection. Alla was the salesperson. I didn’t buy any of those units as they were not suitable for my needs but I was impressed by Alla’s manner and bearing as she showed them to us.
Some weeks later I was ready to put my house in Stirling on the market. I called Alla and two other agents. The other agents were experienced but neither impressed me to the extent that Alla did. I gave the listing to her. It was definitely the right decision.
She really thinks about the client, the house, the state of the market and the best way to present. Her advice on preparation for sale was simple and clear and made a lot of sense. She moves quickly and remains focussed on the job until it is done.
She is very straight forward and professional in her work.
Two weeks after listing Alla had brought forth several prospective buyers and skilfully managed the process of obtaining the best price from the most qualified buyer. It was the best result we could have obtained at the time.
I needed to sell another house in Koondoola two years later and once again I gave the listing to Alla. The market was slowing down at the time but Alla didn’t neglect any opportunity. One buyer was only able to inspect the property after 6:30pm on a winter’s night. Most agents would have tried to put them off until the weekend but Alla greed to miss a personal engagement and show it at the time.
They bought the property and did so a favourable price.
Alla understands the market and gives realistic advice about the value of properties, the state of the market and in particular, the best presentation of your property. If you choose her to sell your property or simply seek her advice on real estate matters you will find her completely professional, very well informed and totally focussed on your situation.
Because of work and other personal circumstances I have had to sell and buy again several times and I have dealt with several other real estate agents in the past. They varied from good to rather poor in their performance.
Alla stands out from them all. She is undoubtedly the best I have detail with.
I am happy to recommend her.
I would highly recommend Alla!
In a tough market she sold our property for over asking in 1 week!
Couldn’t have been happier.
Bryan from Bayswater
I found Alla through Open Agents Australia as I didn’t have any idea on how to find a Real Estate Agent. Being such a difficult market at the moment I knew I needed someone who knew the area well and had had recent successful sales in the same area. Alla didn’t disappoint. Alla was just what I needed and from the moment I met her I knew she was the RE agent for me. As a first time home-seller she helped me throughout the entire process. She was always available to answer my endless questions.
Not only did she sell my house within 3 weeks (unheard of in my area, with my style of property) she got me over the asking price in a VERY difficult market. I could not recommend Alla more. THANK YOU ALLA!
Thanks for your time and happy Friday,
To Whom It May Concern,
Alla Trogashev has now sold three properties for my wife Leanne and myself. All properties have been sold in tough market’s and yet through Alla’s hard work, determination and understanding of the property market she has been able to not only sell our properties but also get the best offer possible. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alla as a truly professional Real Estate Agent.
Jamie and Leanne
Alla was very knowledgeable, polite and sincere person who made it her job to meet our needs. She discussed the idea of Set Date Sale and what it meant and entailed and was able to follow through and deliver a very pleasant sale price for our property within 3 days of the house going on the market!
Alla treated us as individuals with her caring manner, explained things in detail, responded to phone calls/text messages promptly and nothing was too much trouble.
Alla is a hardworking individual who is hard to fault as an agent and as a person – we were very lucky to have had Alla.
I would recommend Alla to any friend or associate in need of representation, she is a true professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and diligent, she listens carefully and gives advice without pushing in any way. She knows the area well and understands what is reasonable and achievable in the market, she advises accordingly. I was very pleasantly surprised at the short length of time our property was on the market, before a reasonable offer materialised in the current market (prices falling), the price we achieved was the price we discussed and agreed with Alla, I was relieved and delighted with the result. Our sincerest thanks to Alla, to repeat, I recommend her to anyone in need of an honest, diligent, gentle agent, a fine lady, a pleasure to deal with at all times. Sincerely, Peter.
Dear Alla,
The Settlement for Brichely Crescent took place on the 12th of this month, we take this opportunity in thanking you for the success of this sale.
You acted in a very professional manner, and were always thinking about our welfare and totally committed to the sale taking place.
We will recommend you to everyone – BIG YES.
We will return to you if we are selling again – BIG YES.
I don’t have your bosses email so I could not copy him/her in this email but do get them to read this.
Pruthvish and Vaishali
