Behind the broad smile and welcoming warmth is a sharp mind that blurs the space between business and pleasure. Because for George, work isn’t quite work, it’s a bit of both.
If you think Master Chef is tough, a sneak-peak at George’s long-time background of business management. He’s the real-deal plate-juggler, having managed and operated over 25 fast food outlets. It’s enough to make most people’s heads spin, but for George, it’s been a learning experience where he’s nutted out what really makes people tick. With all the trappings that make hospitality appear seamless, almost a decade ago, George brought his multi-tasking retail and corporate business skills to real estate.
For every property he deals with, he collects a group of both associates and friends – a sure testimony to his wealth of ability, brought out in his straightforward, calm manner that means you know exactly where you stand.
But it’s even more than that with George.
This easy, relaxed way about him is plated up with a natural ease, drawing you into his ready smile. Having the kind of background he does, this hospitable character puts the hard graft into your sale or negotiation, adding the skill and knowledge required to bring the most pleasing result for all concerned… And he’ll add to it all condiments you’d hope for, and those you never thought of.
Family is paramount for this Greek/Aussie boy. He’s your true family man, who beside his wife, Thekla, traipses throughout winter after his son’s footy games and varied seasonal sporting ventures, and chases his daughter’s artistic endeavours.
Let George help you with yours. Because your dream could just become your reality when George is there to nudge it gently but firmly into a very real future.

How do you choose an Estate Agent when there are so many?
Well it isn’t so easy, but Sam Bucca ticks all the right boxes. Hard working … check! Points on the board…. check! Excellent results… yes, sir. Attention to detail… that’s Sam. All round nice guy…..That’s a no-brainer. Local area knowledge… 40 years on the Peninsula – certainly! All that combined with a firm 18 year history of repeat raving fans.
Furthermore, Sam (although he won’t say it himself), is about heart & throwing himself into your property, sleeves up, boots & all.
With almost 1000 property sales under his belt, if his past clients could talk to you, they’d probably say he’ll do whatever it takes, whenever & however it needs to be done to get you that best result. And his life before Real Estate? Sam’s lengthy background in running his own hospitality’ & service business & a long stint of owning a cleaning company means he’s the guy to give you the real tips on what’s up in the area, Frankston, Somerville, Seaford & right along our beautiful coast line in both business & in pleasure.
Over 30 years ago he met his then girlfriend, now wife. She nutted out his character type – hard working head-down & tail-up & it was then he made her a promise. That each year if the stars aligned & the money permits they would have an annual holiday with a focus on the family/children. His two kids, now adults, have been lucky enough to share that love of absorbing the colour of life & the cultures of others. To keep that holiday feeling fresh, visiting any style of restaurant is high on the list, which Sam & Linda love to do with their many friends. With his food background, perhaps he’s a frustrated food critic? He certainly is a man of his word.
Sam Bucca has a belief. It’s not about being number one, the top dog in the industry (although he’s right up there, year after year after year), but it’s about being number one in the presence of his clients & family, ensuring each & every one of them is treated with respect & dignity.
