OBrien Real Estate founded at the beginning of the decade has posted it’s milestone numbers for the year during 2019 this week, capping off a successful decade for the group which started as a single office in Berwick to now be 27 offices with over 300 staff. OBrien Real Estate now has offices across most metropolitan regions of Melbourne as well as on Phillip Island.
The group’s original founders, Dean OBrien and Darren Hutchins are still as active today in the business as they were when they first started the business. Joined by Stavros Ambatzidis in 2013 the business then grew to 4 offices before franchising across into multiple areas throughout Melbourne.
The numbers on the 2019 report card indicate a tale of two sides in 2019 with the first half being an extremely difficult trading environment particularly for sellers, however after the May Federal Election market confidence began to return and momentum built strongly after the three consecutive rate cuts from June 2019.
