Love Island twins team up with Ray White Cheltenham for The Block sale.

Former Love Island stars, Luke and Josh Packham, have joined forces with Ray White Cheltenham director, Kevin Chokshi, to sell their four-bedroom home on this season of The Block.  

The Hampton property will be revealed room by room, each week on the current series, Fans V Faves, and go to auction on November 6.

The property has been listed with a $2.6 million to $2.8 million price guide.

Mr Chokshi was referred to the Packham twins by an industry contact but said he almost missed the call.

“I was having dinner on a Saturday night when I saw a missed call from an unknown number,” said Mr Chokshi.  

“I made a joke about how I’m always on the clock, but thought I better check it.”

Turned out, the voicemail was from one of the twins. They’d seen the application video Mr Chokshi has submitted to The Block, and were sold, so to speak.  

“They showed me around the house and as soon as I saw it, it was love at first sight.”  

While friends and family often joked about Mr Chokshi’s inevitable appearance on The Block, he said the reality of the deal marks a career dream.

“This is the moment I have been waiting for my entire career, and I told Luke and Josh I would do everything physically possible to get top dollar for their property, and set a new Block record,” he said.

Having moved to Australia from India aged 17, with just two bags and a couple of grand, the Ray White Chairman’s Elite agent now runs one of the top Ray White Melbourne auction offices.

Like the twins, Mr Chokshi said he also loves pushing boundaries.

“I’m not one who follows the standard, I’m happy to take risks and back my ideas. I’m super excited, I’ve got some massive plans when the campaign starts,” he said.

“The house is not for everyone, and I told the boys to take the judges’ feedback onboard but stick to their vision.
Being different is going to be a huge asset on auction day when all the houses go under the hammer.

“Their design philosophy is really bold. I told them to stick to it and don’t let anyone stop you from creating what you want to create.  

“They are making it bold, exciting and I hope to carry that forward to auction day.”
