The weeks leading up to “The Block” auction were intense, exciting and exhausting. Months of planning, hundreds of phone calls and emails back and forth, meetings upon meetings and then more meetings about marketing in order to make sure this campaign went off without a hitch. The weekly inspections at 46a Regent Street were as to be expected, tons of excitement and we knew there would be a fair bit of interest in the beautiful family home.
However nothing prepared us for the public open day where we witnessed crowds of fans that had lined up for hours to take a tour through the properties and meet the celebrity renovators. We also saw our hardworking hockingstuart staff shirk off their suits, skirts, heels and ties for the day and replace it with jeans and T-shirts to help direct the flow of thousands through the winning Block property. As weeks passed we all watched Josh and Elyse celebrate their accomplishments but it was still a wonderful surprise on auction day when the young couple won The Block competition with a record breaking price which we’re sure they’re still celebrating.
Congratulations Josh and Elyse! Also thank you to all the hockingstuart staff for their exceptional hard work and commitment to making this a memorable event.
