Elders Port Macquarie a leader in Residential Sales, Projects, Leasing, Management and Holiday Rentals.

Our Brand

We are proud to be part of the Elders network, which has now been established for 180 years, is 450 offices strong and is commonly known as the most trusted Real Estate brand in Australia.

The Port Macquarie office is regarded as one of the parent company’s flagship franchises having won dozens of awards at a state and national level, and the first in the network to attain Elders’ Elite Status for its property management arm in 2009 which has been achieved each year thereafter.

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.

Our History

The history of Elders Real Estate Port Macquarie dates back to the establishment of Teasdell Real Estate Pty Limited 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, passion, honesty, experience, integrity, professionalism and service. Those qualities continue to drive us forward in our fourth decade.

The business was formed by Bill Bodkin, who 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, an extensive office on Clarence Street.

The Present

In 2017 Robyn Gleeson become General Manager and Licensee and saw Bill Bodkin retire from full time work. Bill is still involved in a mentorship role, this allowed room for David Gray to become both Director and owner of the business.

David has already in a short period put his stamp on the business. Building on the strong base provided, we have seen the sales team grow from 5 to 10, an office revamp, a second office acquired in Crescent Head, increased our social media presence, crowned a new management team and cemented our strong emphasis on personal development.

The business today covers every aspect of real estate – sales, property management, letting, holiday rentals, sale of commercial property, project marketing and auctions. Elders Real Estate Port Macquarie has a dominant presence in the Mid North Coast region, with a profile recognised across Australia.

Tradition is a big part of our business, and Bill Bodkin’s influence will always big a big part of Elders Port Macquarie. Each year we award our most outstanding staff member The Bill Bodkin award. A worthy title after Bill was recognised with the prestigious “John Greig OAM Trophy” for selfless service to the industry in September 2014. A peer recognition by agents across Australia and New Zealand as an industry leader who possesses 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 for over 30 years and it is what will continue to maintain our reputation as a Port Macquarie real estate agency you can depend on for excellence.
