It was by chance that Matthew Chilcott entered the real estate industry in 1999. Having represented the ACT, Victoria Country, NSW and the Northern Territory in football, which included games against Brisbane and Port Adelaide, a chronic back injury forced a change of direction into the property market at the age of 27.
"At the time I thought it was the end of the world as, after leaving school at 15, football was all I had done and all I knew anything about. In hindsight, the bad back has been the biggest blessing in disguise" Matthew explains.
Having begun his real estate career in the high intensity Jenman system, Matthew then worked for Stewart & White in Wyndham Street, Shepparton until an opportunity arose to purchase Crosby Real Estate in 2003 which was owned and operated by the late Rowland Crosby. The name was changed to Chilcott Real Estate the same year and has grown into the multi office network it is today.
The 3 offices I have in the Goulburn Valley complement each other with the Shepparton office being the largest in regards to staff, sales and property management, the Tatura branch being very productive in a great town with great people and the Nagambie branch sitting in a town that is in the top 10 hot spots for property in Victoria, with many city and holiday buyers pushing the market".
Chilcott Real Estate is a market leader in the Goulburn Valley and Matthew Chilcott is the person to see if you want a straight approach with an emphasis on getting the best result for you and your property. "It's about people, not the houses" he says.
