Elders Real Estate sales consultant Val Bronickis has been praised for 25 years at Southern Districts Estate Agency in Collie.
Mrs Bronickis began her working life at Commonwealth Bank at 16-years-old.
She then raised her family and was employed by the Water Corporation before shifting to The Professionals in 1992.
She worked in property management for six and a half years before moving into sales.
Mrs Bronickis said changes in the industry and town have stood out.
“Working in sales, and property management to start with, the changes in the technology have been the biggest thing here,” she said.
“The basics of selling and customer service are still the core basics but the technology we have to assist us has just run away from us I think, in one regard, to where we were.”
Mrs Bronickis said she had enjoyed meeting people and getting out into the community.
She said Collie had facilities for a range of people and easy access to other places in the South West.
