The Local Difference

Our clients genuinely matter to us and what you think of us and how we work really does directly affect our entire business! There is no better way for us to grow our business than to exceed our customers’ expectations and we’d like to think our track record shows how seriously we take this with 70% of our business coming from repeats or referrals. 

Reason #1

Outstanding track record

Our business is built on exceeding client expectations, and our results are testament to our success. Over 70% of our business is repeat or referral and Ruth and Lesley Hawes have been recognised on a national and international level on multiple occasions. Their consistent delivery of outstanding service over two decades has led to them be awarded the International No 1 Salesperson status out of 5000 agents over the entire Ray White network across 8 countries on three separate occasions. We think it's pretty special and proof that really do we go the extra mile for our clients.


Reason #2

Local knowledge

Passionate locals ourselves, the Hawes family have called Kingsland and Western Springs home for over 20 years. You can’t beat local knowledge and we know the local property market inside out. We have grown to become one of the most successful and well respected real estate agencies in the area.


Reason #3

Family owned and operated

‘The Locals’ is a multi-award winning; family owned and operated real estate business. We have earned a reputation for delivering outstanding results for our clients in the city fringe areas of Kingsland, Western Springs, Eden Terrace, Arch Hill, Sandringham and Morningside.


Reason #4

Unique approach

Through our unique approach to individually tailoring campaigns to client’s needs, we ensure that our marketing is fresh, cutting edge and at the forefront of the industry to maximise results. With over 2000 happy clients and counting, we know we are doing something right.
