Australia’s most trusted real estate brand and fastest growing network in Victoria, LJ Hooker, is poised for similar growth in Tasmania.


According to LJ Hooker Regional Manager for Tasmania and Victoria, Paul O'Regan, expansion plans are now underway with a potential six offices set to open across the state before the end of the year.


"Tasmania is a key region for LJ Hooker and we strategically want to grow and cement our place as real estate market leaders in this state as we are in others."


"We are focussing on the Hobart, Devonport and Launceston areas as well as other regional centres where we are not currently represented."


"This is an exciting new phase for us and in Tasmania we already have some of the best franchise owners and sales agents in Australia. We're looking forward to more joining our close knit 'family'."


LJ Hooker is already seen as the real estate network of choice in Tasmania. For example, a recent part-time position with LJ Hooker attracted more than 300 applicants with hopefuls from around Tasmania, Australia and even overseas.


Mr O'Regan said the response was not surprising considering the vast benefits agents and support staff gained from being part of LJ Hooker, which has been a household name since 1928.


"New franchisees are given all the support they needed to become successful in their business, whether they are new to real estate, competitors looking for a change or independent offices looking at leveraging the benefits of being part of a very established brand".


"We are building a larger, even stronger network because it’s a great time in Tasmania for investors with great yields on rental returns and increased activity due to lower interest rates which results in greater affordability."


Mr O'Regan said the proposed LJ Hooker Tasmanian office openings would also create more jobs with an average franchise needing a principal, two to three salespeople, a property manager and support person.
