About Us

In 1953 Socrates Christou migrated to Australia in search of a better life for his young family. In 1957 he sought beyond being a mechanic at General Motors Holden at Fisherman’s Bend, so he learned English and turned his hand to real estate working for Willmore & Randell selling land throughout Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland and setting records which stand to this day.

In the early 70’s it was decided to form a smaller scale of real estate agency called Robert Moreland operating from a city office with expansion into suburban offices throughout Melbourne.

In 1981 Socrates decided to break out on his own and opened John Goodland Real Estate at 63 Upper Heidelberg Road, Ivanhoe. After years of gently nagging, his son Louis joined in 1985 having purchased his 1st home a year before after seeing 52 homes in the quest and found many things lacking amongst the experiences along the way.

1987 saw the name changed to Christou & Co with Louis opening a branch office at 65 Silverdale Road, Eaglemont in 1990. It was then decided to merge the two offices in 1992 having purchased the freehold at 77 Silverdale Road, Eaglemont in the middle of the unprecedented recession we had to have.

Christou & Co has never aspired to be the biggest – just the best.

Keeping things on a smaller scale has created a solid business model able to adapt quickly and remain in sync with ever changing markets.

The flexibility to service client requirements by keeping a complementary balance of technology and people chemistry creates an unequalled real estate experience leading to recommendations and referrals.
