Agent is sold on retiring

BRUCE Hunt has had countless memorable moments in his 30 years in the real estate industry, but it is not hard for him to pick his favourite.

“Working with my daughter Melanie for five years was without a doubt the most enjoyable and rewarding time in my career,” the North Estate Agent property consultant said.

“Together we achieved numerous sales awards.”

The Tweed real estate veteran is now making plans for settlement.

“I have been working in the real estate industry for 30 years in total, 26 years with North Estate Agents, formerly known as Raine and Horne Tweed Heads Coolangatta,” Mr Hunt said.

“I'm looking forward to more time spent on my boat fishing, caravanning around Australia and enjoying quality time with my friends and family. Not to mention spending less time on my mobile phone.”

Mr Hunt said he had seen a lot of changes in his 62 years in the Tweed Heads region.

“It has gone from a small, sleepy little holiday fishing town and transformed into the large thriving township that we see today.

“The first property I sold was a three-bedroom home with water access on Wyuna Road, Tweed Heads West, in 1980 for about $45,000.”

While Mr Hunt is hanging up his North hat, he's still keeping his head in the game.

“Although I'm not going to be working at the forefront of real estate, I am keeping an active Real Estate license and continuing my relationship with North Estate Agents well into the future.

“I look forward to working on a referral basis for my valued clients.”
