Any hockingstuart Agent will tell you that the most rewarding aspect of our work is helping people. Whether buying, selling or renting, real estate is not about bricks and mortar – it’s about people. It follows that each individual hockingstuart office, having spent many years forging ties and creating relationships within a specific area, also feels a strong need to help their local community. Every hockingstuart office is closely involved in supporting community organisations, sporting clubs and other worthwhile causes that help build, develop and sustain the community of which they are a part. We are pleased to announce the launch of the hockingstuart Foundation – our newly established community fund - a proportion of all of our sales goes to the Foundation.
The hockingstuart Foundation supports a number of charities and organisations; with each hockingstuart office able to distribute funds within the local community either to further invest in or support the community work they are already doing in their local area.
Our mission for the Foundation is to make a contribution to our local communities in a meaningful way however large or small. See below some of the great work our offices are doing within the community.
Five cubby houses were auctioned off by Daniel Atsis (Richmond), Marshall Rushford (Caulfield), Sam Rigopoulos (Northcote), Mark Staples (Carnegie) and Lachlan Hosking (Sandringham) in a series of captivating live auctions.
Mark Staples took out the title for highest bid on The Zimmer cubby house, and an impressive $49,700 was raised in total - such a fantastic result!
Mentoring in the Hood is being run by Try Mentoring and will involve weekly meetings and activities such as boxing and theatre sports. It aims to foster self-discipline, peer mentoring, a sense of community, a foundation of healthy living and resilience. The programme was made possible by an $11,000 donation from hockingstuart Frankston and Director Adrian Foster.
