2021 has, so far, simply been one of the strongest years we’ve seen in real estate in Canberra for a very long time. We could speak to the days on market, the strength in sale prices or the sheer number of buyers that are in the market, but as you would expect from home.byholly there’s so much more to it than that!

Without peeling back the layers too much, and deep-diving into the experiences that the past twelve months have delivered, we can all understand and find a quiet moment to reflect on the place we want to be. Right here, right now, in our beautiful city, Canberra.

Last year we started a movement, a movement to support local, reduce our impact on the environment and celebrate the city we all call home. We are proud to say that our efforts are bearing fruit. Our environmental footprint is lighter, we’ve spent countless hours supporting our local communities, and we’ve redefined our agent areas to honour the most important natural assets of our city, our mountains.

Our care for our local community is highlighted in our love.local series featuring people of Canberra, small businesses, our enthusiasm for the Women’s AFL, and our continued advocacy for the Domestic Violence Crisis Service and Fly Program for men’s mental health.

Our support of the Design Canberra Festival remains close to our heart with ‘Transformation’ the theme leading the festival into 2021, with our ‘meet the maker’ series highlighting the many talented creatives in our city.

We have made new partnerships, gifting our clients with wine packs from Hamish Young, the talented winemaker from Mada Wines, and commissioning local internationally renowned glass artist Kirstie Rea to make her ‘sheds’ for our valued clients.

Cultivating, growing and transformation seemed adept to describe the year we have experienced so far. Once again our delivery of the hbh seeds is to encourage neighbourly interactions and sustainable practices further reinforcing Canberra’s economy of community.

As we near our 5th birthday, we’re proud to say the home.byholly approach to real estate is a movement that has gained traction Canberra wide. No longer in its infancy, or to be considered fanciful, we are now a mature, well-entrenched exponent of quality and effective real estate ideals and practices.

Put simply, we punch well above our weight. Boutique in size, maybe, but that makes us creative, and nimble, and that generates remarkable results.
