Tried and True


Blights Real Estate was founded in Port Pirie in 1902 by Fred Blight and later taken over by his younger brother Bob and Bill. Bob left the business after WW1 with Bill continuing the business for over 60 years. In 1975 Bill handed the business over to 3 of his long servicing employees although he continued to work part time in the business as a Land Broker into his late 80’s. Over the coming decades as those owners retired history repeated itself when their ownership and directorships were taken up employees. Chris Keane started with Blights in 1975 and became a director in 1985. He was joined by Fiona Quinn and Gregg Utting in 2008. This management continues today with the same business philosophy established over 100 years ago.

In recent times the company has expanded its operations with Blights opening Office’s in Whyalla in 1991 and in 2003 purchasing the Professionals Offices in Kadina and Wallaroo.
