Right price give away
ONE of Bright’s oldest businesses turns 65 this month and locals can help celebrate the milestone and be in the running for a cash prize.
Given the history of Dickens Real Estate, the current team has decided to try and find the oldest sales record with the help of locals.
Director Jason Reid said to encourage community involvement with the endeavour, they would give $1,000 to the property owner who could show the details of the business’ earliest transaction.
“We’ve also got some signs to put up around town to show the date of when the sales transaction for that property occurred,” Mr Reid said.
“If anyone would like to be involved all they need to do is pop into our office with their details and one of our staff will give them a sign and include them in the competition.”
Dickens Real Estate was established in 1953 by the late Eileen Dickens who was reported to be the first female licenced real estate agent in Victoria.
“Many locals would remember the Dickens family and their community spirit and we take pride in continuing their legacy,” Mr Reid said.
“We thought something that involved the community was a good way to celebrate a business that’s been around for a long time.”
