It’s a big high five for Todd Prop­erty

McIvor Times - - NEWS -

IT’S dou­ble the fes­tiv­i­ties at Todd Prop­erty this De­cem­ber, with the realestate agency cel­e­brat­ing its fifth birth­day.

Owner and di­rec­tor Brad Todd, who has worked lo­cally in the in­dus­try since 2005, says the time has gone quickly.

“The com­mu­nity has been a huge part of our suc­cess,” he said.

“I did work for an­other agency in town be­fore go­ing back to Bendigo. But I missed Heath­cote and the peo­ple, so I came back to open Todd Prop­erty. I’d like to say thank you to ev­ery­one who has sup­ported us”.

In a semi-ru­ral town of 3000 res­i­dents, Mr Todd said the agency’s suc­cess could be at­trib­uted to his team — prop­erty man­ager Kristy Web­ster and sales rep­re­sen­ta­tive Bar­bara Walker-Don­nelly.

“With­out them, Todd Prop­erty would not be nearly so suc­cess­ful,” he said.

Over 15 years, Mr Todd said that he had seen the lo­cal prop­erty mar­ket shift in a pos­i­tive way.

“The next five years will be re­ally ex­cit­ing for Heath­cote,” he said. “Prop­erty prices have in­creased sig­nif­i­cantly, and there is a sense that the town is be­ing dis­cov­ered.’’

This, he be­lieves, is tes­ta­ment to the many years, if not gen­er­a­tions, of hard work by com­mu­nity mem­bers, busi­ness own­ers and wine grow­ers.

“Peo­ple from out of town are telling me that there is a real buzz about Heath­cote,” Mr Todd said. “They can see the town is go­ing ahead and want to get into the prop­erty mar­ket early. Heath­cote could be the next Castle­maine or Tren­tham”.

Kristy Web­ster, Brad Todd and Bar­bara Walk­erDon­nelly were re­ally get­ting into Todd Prop­erty’s fifth birth­day cel­e­bra­tions — es­pe­cially with the ar­rival of the birth­day cake to mark the mile­stone oc­ca­sion for a lo­cal busi­ness.
