There is something very unique about Annerley, it is that sense of community that is lost to much of our cities and towns.
Walk down the streets of this old suburb and feel a sense of belonging, of diversity and friendliness.
The eclectic mix of shops, offices and homes ensures Annerley retains its vibrancy and character reminiscent of a bygone era.
So many of our businesses have been an integral part of the Annerley precinct for decades. The longevity of family run concerns on the high street is a rare find in the modern world of franchises and neon signs.
One iconic landmark is RE/MAX Colonial, smack bang in the middle of The Annerley strip on the corner of Dudley Street and Ipswich road.
This agency has been selling homes and managing rental properties for decades, previously as Colonial Real Estate and prior to that a small independent agency for many years.
Colin Jeffery and his wife Lorene, owners of RE/MAX Colonial since 2001, have loved, married, lived and worked in Annerley since the 80’s with Colin starting his real estate career at Batchelor Realty, previously just a few doors down.
True animal lovers, Colin and Lorene have been supporting the RSPCA for 20 years and as well as holding a their annual cupcake fundraiser for RSPCA Qld, they organise several other fundraisers for a cause very close to their heart. This wonderful couple also ensure that a percentage of ALL property sales to go The Make-A-Wish Foundation making dreams come true for sick kids.
Major sponsors of The Annerley Christmas markets for the last two years, RE/MAX Colonial love their Community and are strong supporters of keeping this suburb vibrant and thriving.
Colin hand picks his sales professionals, and only hires the very best in the business. Collectively, there is well over 100 years of experience on offer, with an unrivalled local knowledge of the Inner Southside. This highly regarded agency has been rated number 1 in Annerley,Yeronga and Moorooka by Rate My Agent for 2017.
It’s hard these days to find a professional business with genuine people offering an authentic, honest customer centric experience. You won't find flashy signs, gimmicks and high rise car parks amongst the long standing businesses of Annerley, like RE/MAX Colonial, you will find ethical, hardworking people offering a quality, bespoke service.
