Linda Wood

Clients have the benefit of Linda making the process of buying or selling a house a totally stress-free experience for everyone involved. Bringing her almost 20 years of passion and experience in the industry, Linda handles all aspects of the conveyancing services like its second nature – you’re definitely in safe hands here.

Outside of work, Linda is a classic mum whose hobbies include making food that no one eats, and counting to three. She also enjoys long walks to the bathroom by herself to enjoy a rare moment where she gets to watch a movie that isn’t animated.

In her “spare time” Linda loves all things music, upcycling old furniture, travelling, and wine.  She has recently gotten engaged, renovated an apartment and purchased a new home – all systems go!

 

Areas of Expertise

  • Prioritisation Queen
  • Creating long-lasting connections with clients
  • Sticking to timelines

One of Legal’s greatest attributes is the daily organisation Bec brings to the office. As Personal Assistant to Stuart, and Conveyancing Assistant to Linda, since October 2020 it’s no surprise that Bec loves to get to know our clients so she can help them achieve their goals.

As a busy working mum with a husband, 3 kids, a dog AND a cat to juggle, Bec really loves a challenge so on weekends you can find her managing the St Joey’s U12s girls football team. Other hobbies include going to the local footy, catching a Pilates class, clothes shopping and artfully hiding the shopping evidence from her husband before he gets home.

Bec’s more than 20 years in admin, and Certificate 3 + 4 in Business Admin, lead her pursue a career in the Legal industry – in 2021 she will complete her Diploma of Conveyancing to add another string to her bow.

 

Areas of Expertise

  • A great sense of humour

Headhunted to start the Legal division at The Hrkac Group in 2015, Stuart brings his 27 years in the Conveyancing and Legal fields to manage the department and oversee all client outcomes.

After starting his career in conveyancing, Stuart decided the law was for him so worked and studied full time for five years to build his in-depth knowledge across many different areas of the law. Stuart now oversees his team who work on everything from Wills, Powers of Attorney and Trusts, to property law, business sales and purchases, and debt collection, to divorce and family law on a daily basis.

Stuart is appreciated by our clients for his ability to explain complex law situations in simple and easy-to-understand terms and is known around the office as a calming presence and the king of one-liners. With our longstanding history, coming to work at the Hrkac Group every day allows Stuart to interact with the diverse team we have here, so he can be involved with a real variety of great clients from different walks of life. Stuart especially likes working with first home buyers as it’s their first entry into the legal and conveyancing world and he really gets to help people at the start of their journey.

Outside of the office, Stuart is involved with several organisations, being a life member of the Newtown Chilwell Cricket Club, volunteering his services to the Naval Association of Australia, and setting up a charity to raise funds for Depression/Suicide awareness.

At home, Stuart and his partner Janene have two selectively deaf identical twin cats who they gave up trying to tell apart so simply gave them different coloured collars and refer to them as blue and red! On the weekends Stuart loves a game of golf, arguing about sport over a beer with friends, and following various horses in the weekend races.
