WJ Tobin & Co was established in 1949 by William "Jack" Tobin. A very well known and respected local identity, Jack forged a reputation of integrity and hard work - a reputation which has been nurtured over the years and which still exists today. Initially, WJ Tobin & Co was the only Real Estate Office in Carina. Over the years, many other businesses have been established, however, none can boast as strong a sense of local history and affiliation with the community as our unique office can.
Alan Franklin, Principal. Today, the business is owned and operated by Alan Franklin. Alan has been a part of the Tobin story since the early 1970’s when he first joined Tobins as a Salesperson. When Jack retired in 1978, he handpicked Alan (and son John, now retired) to take the reins of the "family" business, and since then Alan has always painstakingly ensured the high WJ Tobin standards set by Jack have been maintained. Most recently Alan has overseen the overhaul of Tobin's information technology presence, to greatly improve service delivery for Vendors and Buyers alike. Craig Loudon, Sales Manager. Craig Loudon is the Sales Manager for WJ Tobin & Co. Craig also brings many years of local Real Estate experience to the position. His ability to recall and recount the history of so much local property makes his opinion invaluable when appraising your home. He devotes most of his time to liaising with Sellers to ensure that their properties are given the priority and exposure they deserve as well as coordinating our dedicated Sales Team. Craig’s professionalism is second to none!
Alan and Craig are a unified force and have worked together for well over 25 years. Together they constantly ensure that WJ Tobin & Co continues to maintain and build on its solid reputation.
The Tobin Sales Team.Our professional Sales Staff are a special combination of team players. We are extremely privileged to be able to draw on the skills of such experienced people – people who have been with us for a very long time and who know what they are talking about.
Fortunately, WJ Tobin & Co does not experience the high staff turnover rates that have become the “norm” in so many offices today. What this means is that when you deal with us again further down the track, chances are you'll be met by the same friendly and experienced faces!!
