It was our turn to have a catch up with Tony Lockyer of Doepel Lilley & Taylor for a coffee & a chat at Cafe Lekker recently.
Tony's background is in the building trade. Having completed his apprenticeship with a highly regarded local builder, he finds the knowledge gained as a fully qualified carpenter has been handy since making the switch to real estate, where he has sold 150 - 200 homes in his first 3.5 years.
Here's some of the topics we covered during the course of our discussion and what I learned about Tony:
His favorite food is – Frangos and Sons Greek Restaraunt
He loves talking about – General nonsense with friends, but talking music with Scott from One Point Photography is always enjoyable. Full of wisdom that man (😂 yep, we enjoy our catchups with Scott too 🎶 🎸)
The last song he listened to was - Whatever - Oasis
His favorite movie genre is – Harry Potter Series
He really wishes he had more time to – Relax with friends!
His favorite city is – Ballarat, of course.
He thinks the best aspect of his job is – Working with people to achieve great results and having a positive influence on people I meet each day!
Tony says the one thing all buyers have in common is – Persistence. Finding the perfect home can be a long and drawn out process. Seeking advice from us is a great place to start and will help you on the way!
He believes that the one thing all vendors should know is – How fantastic 3 Peas Property Styling and Doepel Lilley and Taylor are 😃 (Correct answer - ✔️)
Tony tells me that if he didn’t sell real estate he would – – be swinging the hammer, building homes! 🔨
Finally, we didn't want to let Tony go without asking what he thought it was important for people to know about the agency he represents, Doepel, Lilley & Taylor and how he feels that Doepel's differs from other agencies.
Tony told us that he felt that, 'Doepel Lilley & Taylor have been servicing the Ballarat area since 1888. Our longevity in the industry reflects our commitment to giving the best possible service to our clients. We are genuine, hard-working & highly ethical. '
Thanks for your time Tony & to Cafe Lekker for the great coffee!
