Buyers Service

Our History

In 1965 the median price for a house in Sydney was around $16,000 and a loaf of bread cost the equivalent of 15 cents.

In 1965 Brendan Jack entered the family Real Estate business. J. Brough and Son in Croydon Park was a great place to launch his career because, back then, an agent had to know everything there was to know about a property and its neighbourhood.
     ⦁ studied at the Real Estate Institute of NSW and licensed in 1968
     ⦁ studied Real Estate Valuation Practice through the Sydney University Extension Board
     ⦁ He became a Fellow of the Real Estate and Stock Institute of Australia in 1985 - F.R.E.I. (AUST.)

In 1975 a full-time wage was $7618 and the average Sydney house set you back $34,000. ‘Jaws’ was on the big screen and Gough had been and gone.

Now a qualified Valuer, Brendan established his own Real Estate Valuation practice in Artarmon in January, 1970. He valued residential, retail, industrial and commercial properties across the entire Sydney metropolitan region and beyond.

In 1985 Australia’s first mobile phone was still 2 years away. It would be the size of a briefcase, cost more than $4000 and have a 20-minute battery life. Meanwhile, houses in Sydney were averaging $88,000.

Between 1976 and 1987, Brendan studied Financial Management at the University of New England’s School of Financial Management and Research. His pursuit of excellence earns him the respect of peers in the real estate industry.
