Citigroup’s managing director Dragi Ristevski and his wife, Vicky Jardim, the Channel 9 news reporter, have spent $6.4 million in Woollahra on a modernised 1930s home.
It was snapped up just six days into its marketing.
Last trading for $2.35 million in 2002, the four-bedroom residence was architecturally redesigned in 2005 when it was the home of photographer Naomi Hamilton.
There’s no sign yet of their earlier Woollahra home coming up for sale. It cost $4.45 million in 2015.
Ristevski, who was at Macquarie Group before joining Citi in 2010, reportedly has got more deals on than just about anyone in the market.
Citi is advising on the sales of restaurant conglomerate Rockpool Group, the Boost Juice franchising giant and the Strike Bowling owner Funlab.
