About RealSite

We're passionate about one thing...
Your property

RealSite is a local market leader in selling and leasing properties throughout Alexandra and the surrounding districts including Marysville, Merton, Alexandra, Eildon and Yarck.

Established in 2020, RealSite builds on a strong history of real estate service provision through the LJ Hooker brand. After 10 years with LJ Hooker we decided it was time for a fresh new approach to Real Estate, marketing and providing a great customer experience.

This is a very exciting time for the team at RealSite! It has been a long time in the planning and preparation to ensure a smooth transition to our new original local brand.

We are all looking forward to the years ahead Real Passion, Real Solutions and Real Service to all our clients both old and new.
