With over 40 years in the real estate industry, Laurie Thomson is one of the most respected and experienced real estate agents in the region.
Laurie was instrumental in assisting his father Syd develop the family run C.J. Keane & co. agency, which expanded across the Geelong region and South West Coast. For over 50 years the agency was the largest non-franchised real estate business in regional Victoria.
Recently the agency has merged with LJ Hooker to enable the strength of local knowledge to be supported by the resources of one of the leading real estate brands in Australia.
Over the past twenty years Laurie has become an expert in residential land development and major sub-division plans, successfully completing plans at St Leonards, Ocean Grove, Apollo Bay, Drysdale and Belmont, in particular the prestigious High Ridge Estate at Drysdale and Mariners Lookout at Apollo Bay.
In addition to major residential subdivisions, Laurie also undertakes industrial land projects and has overseen the building and development of over forty factories in the region, more particularly in Moolap and Grovedale.
On a personal level Laurie is a family man with a long interest in farming, currently running a mixed rural property at Winchelsea. He is knowledgeable about small and large acreage and pastoral subdivision.
There would be very few real estate agents whose knowledge of the industry is as broad. Laurie generously passes on this experience and expertise to his staff and all the clients within the LJ Hooker office network.
