Business Profile



Serving the Cessnock Community for over 67 years, STERNBECKS is the longest serving agency in Cessnock City.

Commencing business in 1954, STERNBECKS was founded by a long term Alderman and Freeman of the City, Mr Harold James Sternbeck.

Initially steering livestock auctions at Wollombi, operations were extended over the years to include the selling and rental management of property.

Having served the community for almost 7 decades STERNBECKS has earned and maintained a reputable and dependable real estate business providing unrivalled service and integrity throughout the Hunter Valley region.

STERNBECKS has witnessed the transformation of the town and region over the years, from a country town to a bustling vibrant tourism mecca.

Asked what is great about doing business in the Cessnock Region Licensee and Director, James Harvey says “The ‘heartbeat’ of the Hunter … that pretty much sums up Cessnock and surrounds. A glorious place to live where community awareness and mateship form an underlying pulse within residents.”

There is a real sense of belonging and pride. In that time we have been fortunate to help generations of local families satisfy their real estate dreams.

Being a long serving local business, it has also been our pleasure to continually ‘give back’ with fund raising and support to various groups, charities and events throughout our local community”, he added.

Services offered by the business include:

  • Sales/auctions for both Residential and commercial
  • Rental/Leasing
  • Buyer’s Agent
  • Valuations and
  • Clearing sales

Real Estate, forever the same as it constantly changes.
