Nick is the youngest of 3 sons of our Port Pirie based Managing Director Chris Keane. He has grown up in an environment where Blights is an everyday topic and has always had an interest in the business.
Nick started at Blights in March 2014 and has since developed extensive experience in several different roles in the property management & sales departments, as well as becoming a Partner in 2021.
He worked in our Yorke Peninsula office managing his own portfolio of properties before returning to his home town of Port Pirie and is now a member of our sales team working alongside Chris and Sophie Tod. Nick is also responsible for our listings in the Mid North region.
Nick provides a good balance to the business. As an enthusiastic Gen Z he has an excellent grasp of the technology and social media platforms required in a progressive real estate group.

" His professional approach, communication with us all was exceptional "
We are so thankful to have Nick Keane as our real estate agent. It was daunting at first to buy a house in Port Pirie as we live in WA, but Nick made the process easier than expected. His professional approach, communication with us all and other parties was exceptional. We look forward to working with you again in the future. Thankyou Nick
" Looking at buying or selling real estate - I highly recommend Blights "
It took 2 years for us to get our parent's house ready for sale, after Mum passed away. Experience counts, and in that time Chris Keane from Blights showed us great care and respect. When the house was ready for sale, Chris and his son Nick, offered great advice, gave us great support, and kept us well informed. Nick sold the house soon after Blights listed it to a beautiful family who said they had found their dream home. Looking at buying or selling real estate - I highly recommend Blights - our experience was faultless.
" I was most fortunate ineed to be dealing with him, 10/10. "
When trying to purchase a house in Port Pirie from the far side of the world I feel very fortunate that I was able to work with Nick Keane. The whole transaction could only be done by phone or emails and Nick was always available to give advice on house inspections, conveyancing, rates, taxes and everything else involved with buying a house and if he did not have an answer to a question and there were plenty, he would stear me in the right direction. After the settlement the follow up was excellent. It would be two months before I could return to Australia so I asked Nick if he knew of anyone I could hire to check on the house a few times each week to which he replied "not a problem I can duck around and do that for you, no need to hire anyone." And after I arrived back in Port Pirie he has checked in on me to make sure there are no problems cropping up. After all the lengthy correspondence via phone and emails I feel Nick is more of a good friend than a land agent. I was most fortunate indeed to be dealing with him. 10/10.
" He made viewing houses for a first home buyer an enjoyable experience "
When it comes to an agent, I couldn't have been more happy with the service Nick provided. He made viewing houses for a first home buyer an enjoyable experience, and made our dreams come true finding us our dream home.

" We received a fantastic level of communication and support from Nick "
When we made the decision to sell our property in Port Pirie, we engaged Nick Keane from Blights Real Estate based off feedback we had received from others. As soon as the process began, we received a fantastic level of communication and support from Nick, as this was the first property we had sold, it was a reassuring and comforting indication that the sale process would be smooth sailing with no suprises. Trying to manage the sale of a property during the peak of Covid-19 was not a straight forward task, however Nick made sure the sale and conveyancing all stuck to schedule and all parties were left with a successful outcome. We would highly recommend Blights Real Estate, in particular Nick Keane, to anyone thinking about selling or buying property in the area.

" Nick will be someone that we would recommend to all our friends "
I think we were quite lucky with getting Nick as our real estate agent, from the get go he was inviting, kind and courteous. He was very open with everything about the house we first looked at then later purchased. He was more than happy to answer any further questions we had during the entire process and would answer us at anythime he could. Even after completing the purchase, there was one or two things we forgot about and he helped to answer those questions still professionally and kindly. Nick will be someone that we would recommend to all our friends in the future for when they are ready to purchase too. Thank you Nick for helping us achieve our goal and take that next step in our life.

" Selling the house was a new experince for us, but Nick made the process easy to follow "
Although 2020 was not a good year for most people, Nick Keane of Blights Real Estate ensured that it was a good year for us. From the initial call, to make contact with Nick about the sale of our house at 270 The Terrace, he was always up beat. I was worried that the virus would make the house hard to sell, but Nick kept regular contact and was always postive, and when I ring Nick, if he didn't answer, would return the call straight away every time. Selling the house was a new experience for us, but Nick made the process easy to follow, and very helpful. Nick was keen to sell our house and I would fully recommend that Nick would be as keen to take away your worries away in selling any house in the future.
" Very insightful with all information and courteous with answering any questions I had "
I was very happy with the friendly and honest service provided by Nick & Blights Real Estate. Throughout the whole process Nick was very insightful with all information on the house and was very courteous with answering any questions I had. Very happy with Nick's communication between myself and the former owners.
" He provided constant and easy to understand communication "
I am extremely happy with the service provided by Nick Keane. He provided constant and easy to understand communication, and his quck responses to any questions I had made the whole process of purchasing my first home a very pleasant one. I can highly recommend Nick and Blights Real Estate.
" After changing over to Blights, Nick was proactive in advertising and secured multiple viewings "
Nick took on a challenge in accepting to market my ex-rental property for me after advertising for 7 years for sale with another agent. After changing over to Blights, Nick was proactive in advertising and secured multiple viewings, ultimately landing a sale within 2 months of re-advertising the listing. Nick was fantastic - he kept in contact with us throughout the settlement, providing advice throughout. His positive approach made it all really easy - cannot recommend him highly enough!!
" We received constant communication and updates on what strategies he was taking to promote our house "
We were extremely happy with the service we received from Nick Keane at Blights Real Estate Port Pirie when deciding to sell our house. From the day we signed a contract with him, we received constant communication and updates on what strategies he was taking to promote our house for sale in the best way possible. Four weeks after listing with Blights he was successful in obtaining a buyer which eventuated in a sale. The process from signing to settlement was smoont and again the communication was open and honest the whole time. We highly recommend Nick Keane to anybody looking to sell their home.
" Nick outlines his sales strategy and implements it quickly and efficiently "
Nick has just represented us as our selling agent which concluded with settlement on the 31st of January 2020. I have the highest regard for Nick as a real estate agent. Similar agents do not qualify for such plaudits. At the outset Nick outlines his sales strategy and implements it quickly and efficiently. What he says he will do; he does. When he arranges an appointment he arrives early. Everything was seamless. I asked Nick a few questions over the time and these were researched and answered instantly. Nick always looks immaculate and you feel easy about leaving him in charge of your home for a while. I would highly recommend to any prospective client.
" Professionalism, high standard of service and genuine commitment to client satisfaction "
It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial as to the professionalism, high standard of service and genuine commitment to client satisfaction that Nick has shown. With six property purchases over the years and multiple agents, Nick has proven to be the best real estate agent that I have dealt with. Nothing seemed to be a trouble for Nick - every question answered (and researched where necessary) and a feeling that I was his most important client throughout the purchase process. It's been an absolute pleasure to deal with Nick and it is without hesitation that I wholeheartedly recommend him to other prospective clients.
