Wellington and Reeves has a deep history as one of the oldest and most respected real estate businesses in Albany.

In 1948, on a hand shake, Roy Wellington and Alex Reeves, commenced a business which traded as Home Furnishing and Trading Company specialising in home furnishings, but were also Land and Estate Agents

1n 1961, a change of name was the order of the day, and the business became known as Roy Wellington and Alex Reeves Pty Ltd, and along with lifetime friend and partner John Morgan the business  flourished.

In 1977, Graham Wellington joined the firm after studying Architecture for 3 years and project building for 10 years, and was eventually the manager and licensee.

Roy Wellington and Alex Reeves unfortunately both passed on within a relatively short time of one another, both gentlemen serving their town and community admirably.

In February 1987, Barry Panizza joined the business with the generous help of John Morgan. Having had previous banking and farming experience the rural side of the business was once again an integral part.

Mid 2002, as property management had grown substantially, direction and development was required. With this in mind, Kathleen Mier who had been working in the company since 2002, was brought into the business to manage the department from 2004 and to offer clients an improved service experience.

A few months later, Graham Wellington announced he would be retiring and in July 2005 was farewelled at a function that espoused his loyalty and commitment to the company, for the previous 28 years.

After 57 years of family ownership, Barry and Kathleen were honoured to have been entrusted to successfully guide the business into the future.

In 2016, updated branding and a fresh approach to marketing were undertaken, and the business has continued to evolve with Suzie Mier as General Manager and Darren Leslie as Sales and Marketing Manager.  

With a very strong foundation in the commercial, residential and rural divisions and as Albany’s leading land sales agency, Wellington and Reeves continues to flourish and set benchmarks in the Real Estate industry.

With a strong history to be preserved and honoured, the company prides itself on being a part of ‘Albany Real Estate since 1948’.

With a quality team, a positive culture and commitment, Wellington and Reeves aims to be at the forefront of Albany Real Estate long into the future.
