Getting to know you

Take a moment to meet ‘The Local Next Door’

It’s time to get out and explore with Jellis Craig! Welcome to our newest video series, The Local Next Door, where we will take you through the villages of Boroondara. You’ll be able to see and experience the best from the local restaurants, shops, cafes to gyms, recreation, and sporting activities thanks to our expert Jellis Craig agents.

But what really makes an agent also an expert? Not only have they lived or worked in our featured suburbs for many years and know it like the back of their hand, they also have in-depth knowledge of the property market including trends, pricing and buyer movement. They have a love for the tree-lined streets, the shopping strips, the parks and gardens that make up the character of their surroundings.

There’s no better way to show you how Jellis Craig helps their clients “live who they are” than by taking a quick trip through their local area. So, let’s go!
