In 1996 a syndicate of investors purchased land in Point Cook Road that was owned for decades by Cheetham Saltworks and used for salt production. The syndicate’s ambitious aim was to create a prestigious residential community that would stand out in Melbourne and, in fact, Australia.
Two early decisions were the appointment of Greg Norman to design a championship golf course as the centrepiece of the project and the appointment of Peter Righetti to take charge of the marketing and selling of this exciting new project.
And, what a success Sanctuary Lakes has been. Today, the award winning Sanctuary Lakes Resort is regarded as one of the leading residential communities in Australia.
As the Sanctuary Lakes community evolved and demand grew for real estate services other than just the sale of land, Sanctuary Lakes Real Estate was established by Peter Righetti and Kay Righetti. Our charter was, and still is, to provide Sanctuary Lakes property owners with a specialist and dedicated real estate service – buying, selling, leasing or property management.
By 2001, when development of the suburb that is now Point Cook began, Peter Righetti, Rob Sinni and Kay Righetti decided that, rather than broaden the Sanctuary Lakes Real Estate territory across Point Cook Road, they would establish an affiliated business – Point Cook Real Estate – thereby maintaining the Sanctuary Lakes Real Estate business exclusively for the Sanctuary Lakes Resort.
In 2009 Fadi Saad, who had worked in the business since 2003 and was the top perfoming salesperson, accepted the invitation to become a Director and shareholder of the business. Now Fadi and Rob Sinni are Directors and business owners of Sanctuary Lakes Real Estate.
Having been part of the Sanctuary Lakes Resort since the first land sales in 1996, our team knows Sanctuary Lakes property like no-one else. Knowing just about every property and having sold many several times over we’re qualified to provide specialist service and advice that ensures our clients achieve excellent results, whether it’s the purchase, sale or leasing of their valuable Sanctuary Lakes properties.
Sanctuary Lakes Real Estate is a proudly independent business that is not controlled or limited by any franchise organisation.
Sanctuary Lakes Real Estate has sold and leased more properties within the Resort than all other agents combined; we have the biggest leasing and property management business and continue to outperform our competitors.
We are proud to be known as The Sanctuary Lakes Resort Specialists.
