Danny Cobden Real Estate Agent

Danny Cobden

Sales Agent & Director

Danny Cobden

Danny Cobden is a name familiar to most local residents and a name synonymous with the prestige Balmain property market having been the owner of the business for over twenty-five years.

During 2020 he was responsible for the two highest-priced sales in Balmain including setting a new record price smashing the previous record by some $4.5m and maintaining his reputation as the area’s premium property specialist.

He originally commenced his career in Sydney CBD commercial real estate advancing to a Director of Richard Ellis (now CBRE) positioned in both Jakarta and Hong Kong prior to purchasing an existing Balmain real estate franchise in the early 1990s and subsequently re-branding to Cobden & Hayson in 2005.

Over the years, he has nurtured the business elevating it to be positioned as the dominant agency in the area and its subsequent expansion throughout the Inner West. The development of the business has included the acquisition of numerous property management portfolios resulting in the company administering one of the largest rent roll portfolios in Sydney.

Together with Matt Hayson, Danny's role is all-encompassing; from maintaining the overall control and direction of the business while upholding an unsurpassed sales record.

He has for many years consistently sold more $4m + properties in the Balmain area than any other agent, including major waterfront homes, commercial/retail properties and development sites.

Over the years, other personal achievements and previous records have included:

- Record price for a home in Balmain – Circa $11m
- Multiple Waterfront sales over $10m
- Set new records in Balmain, Balmain East, Birchgrove and Rozelle
- Over 100 major waterfront transactions

There is little doubt that Danny is the “premium property” specialist in the area and he attributes the key to this success as having established long term relationships, strong credibility and trust with both buyers and sellers in this sector of the market.

Providing quality advice is the cornerstone of the business which is underpinned by being the only registered property valuer active in the local sales market.

Client comments

"I am very happy to provide the following recommendation for Cobden and Hayson Real Estate to use in any way they wish. When I had to contact a Real Estate Agent to list my deceased brother's house, the local bank I was dealing with suggested Cobden and Hayson and a few others. I looked into Cobden and Hayson and liked their knowledge of the area and their presentation. After contacting them, I was impressed by their advice and attitude and hired them as the agent. Since that time, they advised me, organised various trades people to attend to things that needed work such as repairing the fence, removing rubbish and securing floorboards. They, particularly Danny Cobden and Ada Mastronardo, were very patient over the time it took for probate, never pushing me but offering help and advice. Nearing the time for auction, they kept me informed at all times and I found their advice invaluable. Best of all, they secured an outstanding result at auction. As this is a time when few of us are experts in the field, it is important to have agents who are knowledgeable, dependable and who keep you informed. I am extremely impressed with Cobden and Hayson and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone in need of Real Estate professionals. "

"Having dealt with Danny on a number of occasions in both the sale and purchase of waterfront properties in the area, his straight-talking approach, exceptional knowledge of the market is refreshingly different and appealing both as a buyer and seller of local premium properties."
