First National Real Estate today announced it is official partner of the 2012 Regional Victoria Living Expo, testimony to its commitment to the communities in which its estate agents work and live.
The 2012 Regional Victoria Living Expo aims to bring regional and rural Victoria to Melbourne to showcase the business, lifestyle and cultural riches country Victoria has to offer.
“Country or rural living offers many lifestyle benefits for people and, increasingly, Melburnians are seeking those out,” First National Real Estate CEO, Mr Ray Ellis said.
“We have 83 offices throughout Victoria, with more than half, 47 in fact, located in regional areas, so it is only fitting that we support these communities by highlighting to city-dwellers their many prospects and opportunities.”
Mr Ellis said that the trend for ‘city folk’ to relocate to, or find business and investment opportunities in the country had been growing, especially in recent years, and the Expo is an ideal opportunity for them to find out all about regional Victoria and what it has to offer.
“It can often be daunting for someone looking to purchase a property in the country to find the right area offering the right mix of business, lifestyle, cultural and recreational living,” Mr Ellis said.
“It can also be nerve-racking to make their decision when they are not sure of the area or where the growth opportunities lie. This is why an Expo like this has been sorely needed for some time.
“Our members are very excited by the Expo because it provides a real opportunity for them to reinforce their commitment to their communities and gives them a chance to show off what they can do for their customers.”
