FROM Place Estate Agents, Manly

Chief Executive Officer of Place Estate Agents, Damian Hackett, is excited to announce a change in ownership of the established Place office in Manly.

“Place have had a footprint in the bayside suburbs of Brisbane for many years, and we are excited to see how this can be enhanced under the leadership of experienced agent and Director of Place Gumdale, Glenn Bool,” said Mr Hackett.

“In 2021, we saw Glenn transition from Agent to Director as he opened our newest office, Place Gumdale. He has shone as a leader and the growth has been exceptional, evident in the way he has attracted some of the area’s top talent, growing from a team of three to 15 in just six months.”

Joint managing Director of the company, Paul Curtain, said that Manly and surrounding suburbs are some of the city’s most sought-after, particularly for those seeking the water lifestyle without being too far from the CBD. Given the growth in Glenn’s business, expanding the service and expertise his team already brings to the bayside area was a natural progression.

“Manly and its surrounds will be serviced by experienced agents from our Gumdale and Bulimba teams who have been listing and selling in Manly for years already,” said Mr Curtain. “They have a presence in the area and are cherished members of the tight-knit community. Since opening our Gumdale office with Glenn, it has become increasingly clear that agents, new and experienced, are seeking a respected brand and greater backend support which was previously not available to them in the area.”

Mr Bool said that the opportunity to take over Manly just felt right for him and his team, many of whom have deep connections in the area.

“There is no denying that people love the lifestyle on offer in the Bayside, it is a place people want to be and is experiencing rapid growth,” said Mr Bool.

“We are also proudly sponsoring the Wynnum Manly Seagulls, a personal favourite of mine! We are really looking forward to further embedding ourselves in the community, as well as providing the outstanding service we are known for when it comes to buying, selling, and leasing property in Brisbane.

“While we look to secure the ideal location for our new office, we will continue to operate out of our brand new Gumdale office in the East Side Village.”

The Manly office will now operate under Place’s Professional Services Business Model, designed to deliver all back-end services to new and established offices, including HR, finance, legal compliance, contracts, marketing, and public relations, allowing agents to do that they do best – help people find their happy Place.
