PHOTO: Former McGrath principals Piers van Hamburg and Dean Mackie will join the Di Jones network, it has been revealed, after McGrath Limited surprisingly announced late last year that it would not renew their franchise agreements.

Mr van Hamburg said he was pleased with the outcome.

He said the move would allow the already established office to offer its clients an even more personalised experience.

“The Di Jones brand is a growing brand that is both nimble and prestigious. I am super excited about the future,” he said.

Mr Mackie said he was excited to be joining the rising network.

“The Di Jones brand understands technology, data, digital marketing and how to harness it to benefit its agents and clients,” he said.

“They are leading the industry and this agility and innovative DNA is what we have been missing.”
