Elders welcomes Forbes and Parkes office

Elders welcomes Forbes and Parkes office

Elders Real Estate is delighted to announce its newest offices: Elders Forbes and Parkes.

Under the leadership of Principal Ian Simpson, both offices have been operating under a different brand, and have just been acquired by Elders.

Ryan Robinson, State General Manager for Elders NSW, says that the acquisition is a strategic one for the company.

“Elders has a strong profile in regional Australia, and the Forbes & Parkes venture will certainly add to the service offered in our Rural & Residential Real Estate network. We do have a very experienced sales agent in Warwick Judge, who is an authority in surface and groundwater trading, and we believe the new team will complement that skillset perfectly. There’s a lot of growth and activity in the region, so this is a real opportunity to enhance our real estate service in the location.”

Ian Simpson is a very experienced agent who has been selling real estate for over 15 years. He opened his first office in Forbes in 2013, expanding to Parkes in 2020, and now very excited about joining the Elders Real Estate business.

“I primarily sell rural property, and Elders is the heart of agricultural sales, so it was a natural match,” said Simpson. “I spoke to a close friend who has also moved across to Elders, and he told me he wishes he’d done so years ago. Those were the deciding factors for me.”

Simpson, who has previously worked for Elders as a rural sales agent, is looking forward to the new partnership. “The market in Central West NSW is highly driven at the moment. The new Inland Rail project and logistics hub are attracting businesses to the region. We’re also seeing the flow-on effects of COVID-19, where people want to get out of crowded cities and enjoy a relaxed rural lifestyle instead. Now that people know they can work from home, we expect to see continued strong demand.”

Elders is excited to be offering rural, residential and property management services in the Forbes and Parkes area. Our strong profile, brand and reputation will help the new offices serve the local community to the highest standard.
