Congratulations Jill Toohey - Hear Them Roar

Congratulations to the talented Jill Toohey, Principal and licensee of Knight Frank Wagga Wagga (KFWW) Real Estate Agency, who has been selected to feature in the Women in Business HEAR THEM ROAR video series. 

The video series will celebrate the success of women who have achieved outstanding outcomes while living and working locally in the Riverina Region.

Originally the series planned to profile 10 local, high achieving women in the Riverina, however due to the high standard of nominations, 14 women will now be profiled. The remaining eleven women who have been selected to participate in the series will be notified and announced over the coming weeks.

Jill commenced her property career at Knight Frank Sydney as part of the Graduate Scheme in 2000. Following plenty of research and planning Jill identified the need for a dedicated commercial real estate agency in the Riverina, providing the complete range of services including Commercial Management, Sales, Leasing, Valuation and consultancy. 

In 2008 Jill and her husband Laurence relocated to Wagga from Sydney to open the doors of Knight Frank Wagga Wagga Commercial Real Estate Agency, a franchise of Knight Frank Australia. 

After opening, Jill’s goal’s included building a strong management business which she has successfully done with KFWW managing over 100,000 sqm of buildings, over 60 ha of land and 300 tenants. 

This is made up of 10 shopping centres, Bomen Industrial Estate, as well as many sheds, arcades and stand alone properties. 

KFWW has been rewarded for its success and won numerous awards including, the Knight Frank award for excellence in 2009, Golden Crow award for ‘Best New Business’ in 2009, Knight Frank Office of the year in 2011, 2012 and 2014 and Franchisee of the year in 2014. 

Mayfly Media will produce Jill’s video story in coming months for cinematic release later in the year.
