A little about me
“Real estate is in my blood” is an expression that Bruce Blocksidge is frequently heard stating.
And it’s easy to see why. His grandfather, George Blocksidge, was a founding member of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ). His father, Henry Blocksidge, sat on the Board of the REIQ with the original Ray White. These legacies gave Bruce a love of real estate and immense knowledge of the Brisbane property market. It’s unsurprising then that at over 90 years of age, he still comes into the office almost every day.
However, before he joined the family business, Bruce made sure he had plenty of skills and experience to bring to the company. In his early years Bruce studied law at the University of Queensland and worked in the legal profession for over five years. He then traveled to England where he worked in a real estate agency in Mayfair in the middle of London. He eventually returned to Australia and joined the family business in 1959.
Upon joining the business, Bruce worked hard to establish himself as an outstanding real estate agent in the Brisbane market. His incredible work ethic has seen him working in the Brisbane real estate industry for over sixty years. In an industry where many agents fail to make it past five years, this is an impressive feat. His list of achievements over the years show his expertise in real estate, particularly his stint as Director of the REIQ. He also maintained his license as a valuer, auctioneer and real estate agent for many years, often using them to help with more than just real estate. Bruce undertook many community initiatives over the years such as acting as a charity auctioneer for the University of Queensland.
Bruce is fiercely proud of being part of such a longstanding family business. He is passionate about upholding the company’s values of integrity, honesty and premium customer service. He is proud that Blocksidge Real Estate is still a family owned and operated agency and hopes that it will remain so into the future. This he believes, is the key to its success not only for the business itself, but for its many clients over the years who have bought, sold, leased or had their property managed by Blocksidge.
For this reason, Bruce invites you to contact Blocksidge for any and all of your real estate needs.
