After a career in sales and insurance, Garry became involved in land development and building with AV Jennings Homes, PRD and Sanctuary Cove.
In 1989, a friendship with Roy dating back to the early 1970’s prompted a move to Caloundra to implement the development of Pelican Waters. Since then over 3000 allotments have been settled and planning is underway for the final 1700 tenements, marina and town centre.
Mrs Judy Henzell and Roy invited Garry to become a partner in Henzells Agency in 1990. The Agency has grown to 60 staff with Finance and Advertising businesses added to its general Real Estate and Project Management structure.
The development arm has grown to complete projects such as the 520 lot Ridgehaven Estate, The Jetty Apartments, The Abbey Villas, Ocean Ridge Estate and a joint venture with Greg Norman’s Great White Shark Enterprises company in a 500 allotment golf course development.
After spending his childhood in South Western Queensland, a long term ambition has been fulfilled with the establishment of Darling Downs White Dorper Stud, “Artunga” Omanama Qld. Upon the sale of the stud, a prime lamb, wool and Angus livestock property has been established at Avenel, Victoria.
Outside real estate, Garry has a keen interest in AFL, rugby and horse racing.
Founded in 1935, Henzells Agency is today an independent real estate corporation and one of the most respected companies on the Sunshine Coast. Roy Henzell Senior first established Henzells Agency.
