Merger Creates Super-Agency in City’s North
Adelaide’s Northern Real Estate specialists, LJ Hooker Walkerville | Modbury and Professionals Modbury, have merged to offer the area’s leading property service.
Director of LJ Hooker Walkerville | Modbury, Jarrad Boffo, will lead the super-agency with Derek Lynch, the Director of Professionals Modbury, choosing to move into retirement.
Mr Lynch said: “I’ve owned the (Professionals) agency since 1993 and been in the game for over 30 years. I never thought I’d retire, but we do all unfortunately get older, and now is the right time for me to think about the next chapter. I’ve served on many boards including REISA, REEF (as chairman), and the Professionals Group (as chairman), mentored many agents and proudly led the multi-award winning Modbury Professionals Office.
“As any long-term operator would appreciate, the staff and your clients represent so much more than a business – it’s an important part of your life.
“I’d only walk away if I had confidence that I’d found someone who shared my dedication to customers and staff. Jarrad is one of the most dynamic minds in the real estate industry and his vision and leadership style provides me with that certainty. He has positioned his agency as LJ Hooker’s leading South Australian business, and I’ll be eagerly watching how he takes my legacy to even further heights.”
The merger establishes LJ Hooker Walkerville | Modbury as one of Adelaide’s largest Real Estate Agencies, hosting more than 20 Sales Agents, 16 Property Managers and more than a dozen support staff.
Mr Boffo said the opportunity to bring the two agencies together further magnified LJ Hooker Walkerville | Modbury’s service offering.
“The cultural synergies between the two agencies are obvious; Derek has always insisted the customer is the centre of his agency’s focus, which is something I’ve greatly admired,” he said.
“With the collective experience and unmatched market knowledge now created under the one roof, I’m exceptionally excited to take the new LJ Hooker Walkerville | Modbury office into its next chapter.”
