This year marks 130 years of transacting in Brisbane real estate for our agency. We’ve been known by a number of different trading names, but our history has been unified by the constant Directorship of the Blocksidge family.
Currently, in 2018, there are three generations of the Blocksidge family working in the agency side-by-side. Bruce Blocksidge is the Governing Director, his son Jonathan Blocksidge is Managing Director, and Jonathan’s daughter Georgia Blocksidge is Marketing Specialist and Office Manager.
Our mission – a tradition for both our past and present
Together the Blocksidge’s are working hard with their wonderful staff to fulfil our agency’s mission.
Great customer service has always been at the heart of our agency. It’s something our founder, George Henry Blocksidge (Bruce’s grandfather) encouraged. His fundamental work ethic and mantra was – “One should always endeavour to leave a place better than one found it. It is far more important to keep an honest name than to make a quick quid.”
We believe that it is vital that this mantra be continued and as such, it has been passed down through the generations. To celebrate our history and our future, we would like to share with you our agency’s story, including some insights into the Blocksidge family and some tales of Brisbane when it was just a small town.
