Group CEO Peter Hanscomb said the new office would be the first of many in the NSW market.
Leading real estate brand Hockingstuart has announced the opening of its first Sydney office in Bankstown, a fast-growing suburb located in the city’s southwest.
At the helm will be Principal George Hourani, a passionate local resident who has spent numerous years selling property and forging a loyal client base in the area.
“I am thrilled with the opportunity to launch the Hockingstuart brand in Sydney,” Mr Hourani said.
“Having been in operation for over 35 years, Hockingstuart is a well-recognised Victorian brand with an expanding presence in New South Wales, making it the right fit to enter the growing Bankstown market.
“Geographically located in the middle of Greater Sydney, Bankstown is experiencing rapid change with the new metro line, University of Sydney Bankstown campus and new hospital development putting us in good stead for the future.
“I am proud to partner with a company that sees the vision of what we will be able to achieve together, and am confident that our strong customer service ethos and exceptional local knowledge will be the key to our success.”
Hockingstuart Bankstown will primarily service the highly competitive markets of Bankstown, Yagoona and Condell Park as well as the riverside suburbs of Picnic Point, Revesby, Padstow and Panania.
“This is a highly competitive market, and we look forward to painting the area Hockingstuart red,” Mr Hourani said.
“I was driven to enter the real estate profession because of passion and enthusiasm as an investor.
“With 200,000 new residents expected to converge on Canterbury Bankstown in the coming years, there is great opportunity for us to reap the rewards of the development required to meet its expanding population.
“While we will look at the best sales method for each property we plan to put auctions at the heart of the business.”
The Hockingstuart brand has seen significant growth since its 2019 merger with leading premium brand Belle Property, becoming part of a national network of 170 offices.
And further expansion is on the horizon according to Group CEO Peter Hanscomb, with the new office set to be the first of many in the Sydney market.
“The growth corridor of Canterbury-Bankstown is a great fit for the Hockingstuart brand, and under the expert leadership of local expert George Hourani, we look forward to bringing our reputation for hard work, best-in-class customer service, and exceptional sales records to the area.
“We expect to open more offices in NSW in the near future, with a particular focus on Sydney’s southwest to outer north-western corridor including Penrith, Campbelltown, Leppington and Narellan,” Peter added.
