Real estate firm shows confidence

DESPITE tough economic times, Bailey and Gough First National Real Estate has been able to hire new staff and is expanding its offices.

The estate agency will be stimulating the local economy by re-fitting the old Westlawn building on Prince St in Grafton, using local construction companies and builders.

General manager Kelly Morgan said she was excited about the new premises and that Grafton's rental market was looking particularly strong.

"Bailey and Gough are actually in the process of moving premises to accommodate for the growth in our staff levels," she said.

"We will have the largest First National office space in Australia."

Property manager Megan Kenny joined the firm in April this year after many years in retail.

"Grafton is a good (rental) market in that it does not fluctuate and stays consistently steady compared to the big cities," she said.

Company co-director Rod Ford said Grafton was well placed for population and economic growth.
