In 1993, friends Colin Steinert and Keith Eckermann joined forces and formed a team that would result in South Australia’s leading conveyancing practice, Eckermann Conveyancers.
For 10 years, Colin and Keith worked closely together sharing strongly held values in terms of providing exceptional client service and value for money. Both from rural backgrounds themselves, Colin and Keith ensured that the Eckermann Steinert advantage was accessible to country people throughout South Australia as well as those living in Adelaide.
Colin Steinert retired from the business in 2003 after which time Keith and his wife ran the firm until 2008. This period saw many exciting advances for the business including the establishment of Eckermann Conveyancers offices in the Limestone Coast (Mount Gambier) and the Fleurieu Peninsula (Port Elliot).
The new Eckermann era
Since 2008 the business has been overseen by Keith’s three sons, Brad, Hayden and Jarrod, culminating in a transfer of ownership to the three sons in 2010. It was Keith’s primary concern that his sons maintained the core values of exceptional client service driven by a genuine desire to help people and to make a difference.
As a result of embracing these foundational values, the business has continued to grow under the management of the Eckermann brothers.
The addition of two new businesses, Eckermann Forms and Eckermann Lawyers, has created a group of highly specialised but also highly integrated businesses that together, add a new dimension to the delivery of client service excellence.
The combination of traditional values such as personalised service, honesty and integrity along with up to the minute systems, technologies, information and a highly motivated and experienced team, will serve to ensure that the Eckermann Group will continue to make an important difference to the lives of South Australians for many years to come.
