The Kinglake community coined the term ‘almost a local’, with a pride in the area, the people, and its history. Still to this day we have long standing families with a rich history in the area, some with streets named after them. The community here is close, valuing friendship, mateship, and trust. Small towns talk, and word of mouth is a very powerful advertising medium, something money can’t buy. Integrity understood the needs of this community and a desire to move forward.
Years later, deciding after the huge success in the region, to establish the Integrity Real Estate Kinglake office, right next to the United Petrol Station, further cementing local presence and dedication to servicing the area and the community.
