Web_C333013DETERMINED to offer their customers that little bit extra, Landmark Harcourts in Korumburra recently welcomed licenced real estate agent Phillip Brown to the business. Phill is an experienced sales consultant with a proven track record in residential sales whose skills will complement farming real estate specialist Herb Treacy. Together, Phill and Herb are looking to bring fresh ideas and deliver old fashioned country real estate services to their growing client base.

After making the move from the Korumburra Industrial Estate to a new shop in Commercial Street, Herb says business is busier than ever. “Up until now a lot of people have associated Landmark with the selling and buying of farms,” he said. “We are determined to change people’s perception and let them know that we are also involved in the residential market.” And that is where Phill comes in. A familiar face around town, Phill was born and bred in Korumburra, however up until recently he has been working in residential real estate in the Drouin area. Phill, a licenced real estate agent, has a wealth of experience in residential real estate, whereas Herb specialises in farming properties and being a farmer himself he has hands on experience and knows exactly what it is all about.

“My experience is in residential properties and I have sold many hard to sell properties, so we will complement each other,” Phill said. According to Herb, business has been strong over the past 12 months with residential clientele continuing to increase. “We have sold a lot of the upper market houses around Korumburra over the past 12 months,” he said. “I can see a big future in Korumburra for us especially in the residential side of things. “Our aim is to offer a good old fashioned service to our clients.” Herb was awarded The Gold Pin Award for Sales and the Silver achievement award in Sales at the Landmark Harcourt Awards Ceremony in Melbourne on Thursday night.
