“…a leader in the real estate profession over a sustained period of time…”
If a career is a marathon rather than a sprint, John’s background proves the point perfectly in more ways than one. Not only has John been at the forefront of residential real estate since 1972, he has also matched his work related marathon with marathon running.
An avid and accomplished participant in events such as half marathons and the Sydney City-2-Surf as well as the ultimate challenge of the 42.2km full distance run, John’s athletic enjoyment extends to weekly tennis evenings where the emphasis has a more social, yet still very competitive, edge!
The persistence necessary to be a Melbourne Football Club supporter, a professionalism that only few peers can match and a stellar track record of sales success and leadership over a sustained period define John’s exceptional run in real estate!

A property professional since the early 2010s, Felicity Locandro offers her clients a rare blend of business acumen and creative talent …first in evidence as she simultaneously completed a degree in Fine Arts and built her own photography business! Starting out in real estate as the assistant to a fast-paced agency director, Felicity continues to work with the area’s key players (including developers, builders and investors) alongside some of the industry’s most well-connected and widely-networked agents.
These connections are at the heart of Felicity’s success. She sees the four weeks of the sales campaign as just the start, as she builds on initial contact to create ongoing relationships amongst vendors and buyers alike. Her deep understanding of the sales process ensures that every opportunity is optimised; whether it’s using an expert eye to ensure vendors’ homes are presented for maximum effect, overseeing photography at a professional standard, or ensuring that media and marketing materials are both accurate and eye-catching.
With involvement in hundreds of successful sales over the years, Felicity is confident of her skills and the skills of the team around her. Even during the toughest negotiation or most apathetic auction, Felicity remains unfailingly positive. Her faith in her abilities and those of the team around her instils enduring confidence – as she encourages vendors to trust the professionals, trust the process, and trust that the Buxton team will achieve a beyond-expectation result.
This same positivity drives Felicity’s life outside work. Born in the Bentleigh area, Felicity spent her teenage years in Hong Kong with her family before choosing to return to the locale she knows (and loves) the best to build her career. The booming development environment and increasingly international market she found on returning is her perfect fit – providing endless opportunity to build connections, put the process to work and exceed her clients’ expectations.

Rapport and professionalism are number one for me, which are underpinned by the experience I bring to the table for each of my clients, as well as the industry recognition I’ve picked up over the past fifteen years. I like being hands-on, keeping my clients informed throughout every step of the way and treat my customers how I’d like to be treated myself. I’ve also spent my whole life growing up, going to school and working in the area. The community is what makes it so special here. Everyone is friendly, approachable, kind-hearted and most importantly, looks out for their neighbours. Being consistently in the top performers in the area is a testament to the hard work I put in.
After Completing a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Financial Planning and Marketing, I was given an opportunity at Wilson Glen Eira and have never looked back. A strong passion for real estate is what initially allured me to the industry.
During this time I’ve involved myself in all areas of the real estate process, including sales, marketing, auctions, project management and property management. I have worked in numerous regions throughout the Inner Bayside region of Port Phillip/Glen Eira
Throughout my career I have managed to build a strong and credible reputation, with a commitment to achieving superior service and fantastic results.
