LJ Hooker has big plans for Killarney expansion

ROB and Linda Finlay of LJ Hooker Warwick have taken the reins at Killarney Real Estate and are optimistic about the future of the town.

Ownership officially changed hands on October 18 and Mr Finlay said he was excited about the new venture.

"I reckon the town is great, the people here are really friendly and family orientated and that fits what LJ Hooker is all about," Mr Finlay said.

The pair were quick to offer what they thought was next on the cards for Killarney, and it was all positive.

"There is a lot of opportunity in Killarney and I think it will grow over the next three or so years," Mr Finlay said.

"It's got a lot of appeal and people are coming here for the lifestyle and the affordability."

With the local real estate now backed by a well-known body, Mr Finlay said it could only be good news for Killarney.

"It's great for a little town and to have the opportunity to be backed by a big organisation like LJ Hooker, is great," Mr Finlay said.

"There is a whole stream of contacts and database behind it that we can tie together and the technology behind LJ Hooker such as the software packages and training."

Having the Killarney office means their jurisdiction can expand across the border.

"It gives us a footprint into northern New South Wales so we will have rentals and sales in NSW," Mr Finlay said.

Rob and Bev Hall will manage the Killarney store and Mr Hall couldn't be happier with his new bosses.

"This is beyond Bev's and my expectations and we are beyond happy," Mr Hall said.

The Finlays have their sights set on other opportunities that may arise around the region and said this was just the "first part of the expansion phase".

It will remain called Killarney Real Estate for the time being, and possibly change to LJ Hooker in the future.
