“The Port Macquarie office is one of our flagship offices. The commitment to real estate business excellence and constant improvement is evidenced by their numerous awards and recognition over the years”. – Brendan Whipp, National Franchise Manager of the Elders Group.
E is for Elders, Elite & Excellence.
The history of Elders Real Estate Port Macquarie dates back to the establishment of Teasdell Real Estate Pty Ltd in 1977. Originally at the corner of Short & William Streets, its operations may have been more modest than today, but its ambitions were every bit as grand scale as ours are now.
From the beginning, the formula for success has been based on a high degree of local knowledge, honesty, experience, integrity, professionalism and service. Those qualities continue to drive us forward in our fourth decade.
Our Licensee In Charge, Bill Bodkin, joined the Teasdell team in 1984 and was part of the transition process that saw the agency join the Elders fold in 1986. Robyn Gleeson joined the business in 2002, becoming our Managing Director – and Bill’s co-principal – in 2004. It was shortly after this that we moved to our present home, and extensive office on Clarence Street.
The business today covers every aspect of real estate – sales, property management, letting, holiday rentals, sale of commercial property and auctions. Elders Real Estate Port Macquarie has a dominant presence in the Mid-North Coast sector, with a profile recognised across Australia.
We are proud to be part of a real estate network – founded in 1839, by Alexander Elder – that now has more than 450 offices across the nation with branches overseas as well.
The Port Macquarie office is regarded as one of the parent company’s flagship franchises and was the first in the network to attain Elders’ Elite Status for its property management arm in 2009.
One of only two outlets in Australia hold that status currently, we have maintained this annually – awarded honour ever since, fulfilling 22 stringent criteria that demonstrate our commitment to excellence in customer service for property owners and tenants alike. With 25 staff members making up the team, we are one of the biggest and busiest Elders offices in the group.
As a business, as departments within that business, and as individuals within those departments, we have won dozens of awards at state and national level.
Our recognition as a successful real estate agency is consistent and that is because we strive to improve continually the services we provide for our clients.
In September 2014 our Licensee and director Bill Bodkin was recognised by agents across Australia and New Zealand and awarded the prestigious “John Greig Trophy” for selfless service to the industry, peer recognition as an industry leader and the demonstrable qualities of a positive role model.
Success is measured in what we get right and that begins by serving our clients well. Our ethos is to value our clients – buyers, sellers, tenants and owners alike – and treat them with respect, warmth and integrity in a professional manner that incorporates good communication and works to earn your trust.
These are what has served us well since 1977 and it is what will continue to maintain our reputation as a Port Macquarie real estate agency you can depend on for excellence.
