Local success leads to growing team

With people re-evaluating their home situation after being stuck indoors for two months, suburban real estate areas are thriving, creating opportunities for a new sales team.

According to The Agency and research from REA group, Wollongong and its surrounding suburbs are the fastest-growing area in NSW. 

“The Wollongong property market has been outperforming the entire state, [and] recent data has shown it’s the top performer in terms of property enquiries and on-the-ground sales turnover is strong,” Matt Lahood, The Agency’s CEO, explained. 

“While this has been driven in part by COVID-19 and an increased desire for non-metropolitan living, there is little doubt the lifestyle, value for money and ease of access to Sydney has maintained this attractive regional location.”

The success of the area has led to new opportunities, with The Agency announcing that industry veteran and highly respected local resident Sean O’Connor and his team — Jake O’Connor, Jennifer McCormack and Tony Johnson — have joined The Agency in Wollongong. 

“We are honoured Sean O’Connor and his high-calibre team have chosen The Agency at this seminal point in time for the local property market,” Mr Lahood said.

Sean O’Connor consistently ranked in the top 10 agents within his former real estate network and is considered a platinum-level agent. He holds key roles in the local community, including deputy chairman of the Steelers Club and he works with a range of charities across the region.

While announcing his excitement at this new opportunity, Mr O’Connor said The Agency provides the right balance of working productively with clients as well as maintaining the highest levels of service.

“With over 30 years of real estate experience, my main objectives are to continue to service the needs of my many loyal clients and their families, as their children look to come into the market. I believe the systems, marketing and support The Agency can provide will enhance our level of service and results,” Mr O’Connor said.

This theme of generational relationships and success is something Thomas McGlynn, The Agency’s national head of sales, is looking forward to supporting within Sean O’Connor’s team.

“Sean O’Connor is an extremely successful business owner, and his son Jake is a rising star in the Wollongong real estate industry. His attention to detail and high ethical standards are second to none,” Thomas McGlynn said.

“I am looking forward to supporting and working with this impressive team as they further expand their already significant market share.”
