Real estate homecoming for former publican
National real estate network LJ Hooker has arrived in Oberon with former Royal Hotel publican Robert Hollis part of the new team.
Mr Hollis, who operated The Royal for a decade until 1999, and his partner Victoria Freeman have brought more than 43 years of real estate experience to newly opened LJ Hooker Oberon, at 93 Oberon Street.
The partners – who met whilst working as prominent members of Sydney’s competitive Lower North Shore real estate market – said they were eager to introduce the LJ Hooker brand to local residents.
“LJ Hooker is a nationally recognised and trusted brand which will provide confidence to sellers and landlords in the area,” said Ms Freeman. “We’re excited to showcase its marketing and support innovations to customers, combined with Robert’s and my own extensive real estate experience.”
After leaving Sydney, the pair spent a short period in Little Hartley, but the Blue Mountains township didn’t offer the ‘close-knit community feel’ they left the city in search of.
“Knowing Oberon well, Robert believed it would be the perfect mix of a lifestyle and business opportunity for us.
“It’s a homecoming for Robert and, already, we’ve had a lot of people reach out to welcome us.”
Only opening this month, Ms Freeman said it was evident that there was an undersupply of stock in Oberon and wider districts.
“Especially with the Sydney market slowing down, there’s many people with the opportunity to capitalise on the growth of their properties and relocate to more affordable markets such as Oberon that offer a better lifestyle,” said Ms Freeman. “The Central West’s profile is really growing amongst Sydney circles. There’ll be continued scope for local sellers to take advantage of this continued demand.
“It’s also a great time to upgrade in the current market, with interest rates remaining at record lows.”
