Trimson Partners Real Estate Inc. Trimboli Real Estate

Our Team

Frank Trimboli
Partner / Licensed Estate Agent / Sworn Valuer


Partner, licensed estate agent, accredited auctioneer and sworn valuer for the State of Victoria.

Experience only comes with years of active service. Frank has been on the ground in the West since 1959.

Expertise is the sum of experience and education. As his experience grew, Frank topped up his education. He graduated as a qualified valuer in 1966 and was immediately invited to lecture in the subject in 1967 at RMIT. He became chairman of the Board of Examiners for what is now the Australian Property Institute. Frank encourages his team to continue their studies to add to their expertise so that the level of service and advice they provide to the public is accurate and second to none.

Involvement in the community, involvement in the industry. Frank has left an indelible mark on both. He has been president of the Rotary Club of Footscray, a board member of the Footscray Society for the Aged and a council member of what is now Victoria University. For years Frank was a major sponsor of pro-am days at Medway Golf Club. The nursing home in Mephan Street, Footscray was a major project that Frank helped steer through during his membership on the Board of Directors.

For twenty years Frank served on the board of REIV and he was appointed to the Estate Agents Board by the Victorian Attorney General and became its vice-chairman when it was reconstituted as the Estate Agents Council in 1995.

Innovation is a measure of the ability to anticipate change. Whether it be advancing qualifications in the industry, participating in major local developments, or putting his business online, Frank has kept ahead of changes.

Excellence comes from a sustained commitment to improvement. The West continues to reinvent itself and Frank Trimboli Real Estate has done the same to keep ahead of the game.

Ethics is critical in an industry built on most people’s biggest asset – their property. Too much is at stake to let people down. It was no accident that Frank was appointed to the Estate Agents Board to supervise licensing and discipline within the industry. Frank Trimboli has built a lifetime’s reputation on trust and respect.

Frank is one of the select few to be awarded an Honorary Life Membership of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria.

Frank is the only agent west of the Maribyrnong River to serve as president of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria.

Frank wrote a Glossary of Terms used in Real Estate and Valuation, which was a reference textbook for tertiary students aspiring to be agents and valuers.
