Victoria’s Jellis Craig has bolstered its network, announcing the addition of a further 10 offices to its roster following the acquisition of Greg Hocking real estate group.
The Jellis Craig network was founded in Melbourne’s inner-eastern suburbs in 1991 and has since grown to 27 strategically placed offices across metro Melbourne and regional Victoria.
The addition of Greg Hocking real estate group’s 10 offices represents part of Jellis Craig’s continued strategic expansion across Melbourne’s premium locations.
The two companies joining will result in the expanded group’s coverage extending to 37 offices across metropolitan Melbourne and Victoria’s premium lifestyle areas.
Jellis Craig Chief Executive Officer Nick Dowling said he was thrilled to be joining forces with one of Melbourne’s most recognised and respected names in real estate.
“Greg Hocking is an icon of the Melbourne real estate industry,” Mr Dowling said.
“Greg and his team have a rich and successful history in sales and property management and we welcome their wisdom and experience.”
The Greg Hocking brand’s 10 offices in metropolitan Melbourne have more than 80 staff members.
“We have had our sights set on specific locations in inner Melbourne where we don’t currently operate for some time,” Mr Dowling said.
“Joining forces with Greg Hocking will complement our existing locations and further cement our dominant market position across key demographic areas.”
Mr Hocking said he was delighted to be partnering with Jellis Craig, adding that the businesses’ combined 40 years servicing the real estate needs of Melbournians would stand them in good stead for ongoing success.
“Jellis Craig has long been considered an industry heavyweight,” he said.
“They are very well resourced and have an unwavering commitment to professionalism and innovation.”
Jellis Craig’s network of strategically located offices are positioned across Melbourne’s most sought-after suburbs and reach into local, interstate and international markets.
