The 18-office Victorian estate agency Buxton has a new ownership group.

Buxton Corporate will now have seven directors.

The directors include Mark Earle, David Hart, Ben Riddle, Craig Williamson, Chris Hassall and Nathan Jones.

"We are also excited to announce that we have secured Nigel O’Neil who will join us as managing director," Mark Earle advised staff this week.

"Nigel has nearly a decade of experience leading and developing another real estate group and brings a wealth of knowledge to that role.

"The new leadership team is extremely excited about the future at Buxton and we look forward to sharing more in 2017."

O'Neil's appointment comes after his rapid exit from hockingstuart in February after 8 and a half years’ service.

"When these discussions commenced, the most important aspect for me was for Buxton to remain as Buxton," Earle added.

"Albeit the last few years have been very strong, we firmly believe our best days are ahead of us.

"Our aim is to make Buxton even more of an attraction brand for vendors, landlords and agents."

The first Buxton office was established by the company's founder John Robert Buxton in South Melbourne in 1861.

Buxton has offices across many key inner-suburban and bayside locations, including the Mornington Peninsula and Greater Geelong.
