Serving the residents of Brisbane since 1949

Tobin Real Estate was established in 1949 by William "Jack" Tobin, a very well known and respected local identity.

Jack held a reputation of integrity through hard work - a reputation which has been nurtured over the years and which still exists proudly today.

In the beginning, WJ Tobin Real Estate was the only real estate office in the Carina area. Over the years, many other businesses have been established; however, none can boast as strong a sense of local history and connection to our community as our unique office can.

We are extremely proud to be celebrating our 69th Anniversary in 2018!

Meet our Principals

Tobin Real Estate is owned and operated by Alan Franklin and Craig Loudon. Alan has been part of the Tobin Story since the early 1970's when he first joined WJ Tobin as a Salesperson.

When Jack Tobin retired in 1979; Alan assumed ownership of the business and has taken it from strength to strength since then.

Most recently, Alan has overseen a major refurbishment which has delivered a fresh new streamlined environment with a new Logo Design but always proudly displaying our trademark name.

Craig has recently taken on the Partnership Role with Alan having been the Sales Manager here for over 25 years.

Craig is not only our Co-Principal but a active Sales Agent and oversees all aspects of our business and is in constant contact with all of our Sellers on a personal one on one basis from the listing of the home to the final selling stage.

Communication and Reputation are the keys to success in Real Estate. Our team and myself are all actively involved in the selling process for all of our valued clients and their properties.
