Right price give away

Alpine Observer - - News -

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.”
