You won’t get any more local than the Thomas family when it comes to Real Estate in the Gympie district. Chris was born in Gympie in 1957 when his Parents, Dave and Val along with Grandfather George owned and operated George Thomas The Livewire Auctioneer Real Estate and Valuers. After Georges passing in 1964 Dave and Val continued the family business as George Thomas and Co through to 1981 where Dave continued as a Valuer and sold the Real Estate business. After spending all his younger years growing up in a real estate family and eventually continuing the family tradition in late 2004 this is the ethical standard that Chris still abides by. When starting his career in Real Estate Chris spent a lot of time selling rural and lifestyle properties from The Mary Valley and out to the Burnett Region as well as residential properties in the local area. With the decline in sales in the large rural properties due to the global economic downturn more effort was concentrated in to more of the lifestyle acreages and residential sales and that is the area he still concentrates on presently.
