Have you noticed something new next door?
It’s a small world after all............. Many of you will remember my daughter Sonya, who after many years of working here moved onto a role in Real Estate. During this time she worked with a fellow by the name of Daniel Cassar. Daniel became one of the area’s top agents working with Barry Plant, Phillip Webb and Hocking Stuart before deciding it was time to open his own agency- low and behold, he opened next door to us in the old “Cow Shed” premises. Daniel knowing our family for many years, has a great understanding of Boronia and is proud to be intertwined in the history of our business and has kindly offered our “Liz’s Club Members” a great offer. If you decide to exclusively list your property for sale with Hocking Stuart Boronia and are a current Liz’s Club Member you will receive a $250 voucher for Liz’s Sewing Centre, once the property sells, and if you refer a friend to Daniel and he lists that property exclusively with Hocking Stuart Boronia, you will receive a $250 voucher for Liz’s Sewing Centre, once the property sells - Now that could help towards a new machine, disks, software classes or anything you may need to stock up the sewing room. All you need to do is provide Daniel with contact details OR make sure when your friends phone him to mention they were referred by you and that you are a club member from Liz’s. Daniel has exceptional professionalism, strong market knowledge and very strong ethics. I cannot recommend him enough and we wish him every success for the future.
