Harcourts celebrates a ‘milestone’in the north HARCOURTS North Geelong staff have popped open champagne to celebrate 20 years of real estate service to Geelong’s northern suburbs. Director Joe Grgic said he was proud and excited to reach the milestone. Mr Grgic said the business had grown steadily since 1991 when his father Mario began the oneman operation. “Mario started the business in 1991 under very harsh conditions in the so-called recession we had to have,” he recalled. “It was a small office where Mario’s wife, Marie, was the receptionist and there were no properties to manage. “The business grew steadily and now we have a sales team of seven and five in property management, plus administration and support staff. “Last year we joined the Harcourts group, which has a world-wide network and a great culture that matched our business and family values.” Mr Grgic said advancing

Big day: Staff celebrate Harcourts North Geelong’s 20th anniversary. technology was behind the decision to re-brand as a Harcourts agency. “Technology was a significant consideration and Harcourts is a leader in the field of real estate technology.

“For example, QR codes will be introduced on our signage boards, which allow prospective buyers to scan and download additional images and information about properties directly to their smart phones at no cost.”

Mario Grgic, who now serves the agency as sales manager, said advances in technology had changed the role of real estate agents. “That’s where real local knowledge and understanding of the area where you work is so important,” he said. “Technology has also changed the way in which we communicate. “Many clients nowadays depend upon receiving information and updates via email as well as good old-fashioned phone calls and home visits.” Mr Grgic said Geelong’s real estate landscape had changed dramatically over the past 10 years. “In particular, the northern suburbs have seen considerable growth and the number of Melbourne investors has increased. They no longer see Geelong as a lesser option,” he said. “The fundamental principle always remains and that is to listen to what people want and to know that they deserve great customer service and nothing less.”

Long lunch: Guests at the REIV past presidents lunch.

Ex-leaders ‘toast service of REIV’ PAST presidents of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria’s Geelong branch shared “many a joke” while celebrating 99 years of the organisation’s service to the region at an industry luncheon last week. First National Real Estate’s Greg McDonald said REIV state president John Grabyn and chief executive officer Enzo Raimondo also attended the luncheon at Geelong’s Chifley on the Esplanade. “They were on hand to assure all that, despite comments from some real estate franchise groups, the REIV was still very relevant to the profession and would continue to represent real estate practices in Victoria for the next century. “The REIV regularly makes submissions to government on licensing, business practice, and most recently, reductions to stamp duty for first-home buyers.” Mr McDonald said the luncheon demonstrated that the REIV was “still in good hands”. REIV members from as far back as 1970 attended. 523287-KC25-11

Central park: A landscaped hilltop park will be a special attraction for residents.

Buyers sign up for hills and views S

tage four of Bellrise Park at Estuary is now on the market for home-hunters keen to reserve their slice of one of Leopold’s best addresses. Stage four features 11 premium home-sites ranging from 570 square metres to 775 square metres with frontages of up to 24 metres. Estuary’s Bellrise Park precinct is renowned for its gentle undulating land and a series of retaining walls to maximize the spectacular views of Corio Bay and Geelong. Villawood Properties executive director Rory Costelloe attributes Bellrise Park’s popularity to a growing number of buyers in the market for premium-sized home sites with stunning views. “We have seen a great deal of interest in Estuary’s Bellrise Park mostly from couples and families

who are ready to take the next step and build their ultimate home,” he says. “Residents at Bellrise Park will benefit from a landscaped central Hilltop Park, with a viewing deck that takes in the magnificent views of Corio Bay. “Offering a number of retaining walls and sweeping views over the bay, it’s no wonder buyers have been impressed by these premium home sites since its inception. “Bellrise Park is the cream of the crop and its popularity indicates how impressive this stage really is.” Estuary is at Shoaling Drive, Leopold. The 20-home display village and land sales office is open every day from 11am to 5pm. Visit or call 1300 737 598 for more information.

Light show: Say good night to Geelong’s skyline from an elevated allotment at the Estuary.
