The Friendliest Office in Town
We are proud to be part of an independent local company, formed nearly 40 years ago by a group of Victoria’s top-tier real estate professionals, guided by their shared belief in superior service, serving the best interests of their customers and clients, acting fairly and honestly, and always taking the high road. Today, we at Newport live those very same values. We are consistently recognized in the local marketplace for our distinctive advertising and our high-calibre sales force, and we are proud to have grown to close to a hundred agents in two offices, including our brand new home at Newport Place on Fort Street. Together, we serve our clients in over 1,000 successful transactions a year.
