With a maturity and life-experience well beyond his years, along with a colourful career in the racing industry, Anthony Elliott’s success in real estate was always a ‘sure thing’.
The Elliott family has strong connections to both the racing industry and real estate. Indeed Anthony’s father, John Elliott, enjoyed a successful career in property sales – at Frank Dowling Real Estate.
It was of little surprise then, when at age 24, Anthony made the decision to leave the sport of kings and join the stable of thoroughbred agents at Frank Dowling Real Estate.
His drive for success and natural people skills provides Anthony with the ultimate platform to build strong relationships with vendors and buyers alike. And having resided in Strathmore his entire life, Anthony has a strong connection to the people and unique attractions of Moonee Valley.
