FARM land sales in key agricultural zones have continued to grow as large family farm businesses look to expand, fuelled by low interest rates and greater confidence in the dairy industry.
Elders Leongatha and Korumburra is ideally placed to meld the interests of buyers and vendors in the district who are taking advantage of the improving market, as it has recently expanded its real estate departments.
Two new staff have come on board: Jean O’Loughlin and Megan Lester.
They join branch manager Rohan McRae, Don Olden and Zel Svenson who have many years’ experience in the industry.
Jean O’Loughlin joined Elders when Zel Svenson took maternity leave.
Zel Svenson is back on board and Elders offered a new role to Jean.
Impressed with her success with listing and selling residential and rural lifestyle blocks, Jean will focus on these areas as part of the expanded Elders team.
This will free up Zel and Don to concentrate on larger properties – areas where they have specialist understanding of farm land, pasture, infrastructure and connections with local farming families with one of their most recent sales being 310 acres that was auctioned by auctioneer Rohan McRae. Although not sold at auction, Zel and Don negotiated a satisfactory sale after on the day.
Megan Lester has joined the Elders property team in property management.
Megan has seven years’ experience in the industry and will look after renters and clients around the district.
The Elders staff will work out of the Leongatha and Korumburra offices and welcome any inquiries on available property or valuations.
Properties are listed online and in the regularly updated booklets available at the two offices, along with Elders extensive national network of offices.
A selection of properties are also available for viewing in the shop windows.
