McGrath Estate Agents have expanded their reach, opening a new office in Ballarat in regional Victoria.

Their move, which is part of the focus to expand into key regional areas in the state, comes after they opened a Geelong office, their first regional

John McGrath, the founder and executive director of McGrath, said Ballarat is an important growth area of Victoria.

“We earmarked Ballarat over two years ago in our McGrath Report as an important key regional market that has transformed itself from an industrial hub to an attractive lifestyle centre that offers more affordable housing, employment opportunities, a strong sense of community and a relaxed way of life," McGrath said.

"Ballarat is a prime example of a regional city that is no longer the sleepy second tier town but conversely, one that has come of age as thriving economic centre and community.”

McGrath Ballarat will service the area of from Ballarat North to Durham Lead in the south; and Cardigan in the west to Warrenheip in the East. Key suburbs will include Ballarat Central, Solders Hill, Wendouree, Canadian and Ballarat North.

Christopher Mourd, head of franchise network for McGrath, said Ballarat has been on our radar for some time.

"As the third largest city in Victoria, it is one of Australia’s fastest growing and most liveable regional cities with diversified manufacturing, tourist, education and professional services in abundance," Mourd said.

“Ballarat is a well-planned city that is steeped in history from the days when it was at the heart of the gold rush, and then a manufacturing town.

McGrath Ballarat will be led by principals Daniel Nestor (above on the left) and Sean Toohey (above on the right) who have been involved in a sales and operational level with various real estate agencies in Ballarat.

Most recently they were both directors of Ballarat Property Group.

Nestor said Ballarat deserves a premium brand with the highest quality people servicing the market.

"We want our clients, both vendors and buyers, to benefit from the best marketing, knowledge and customer experience that we can offer," Nestor said.
