Our Story

From humble beginnings to the business we are today, our two greatest passions remain unchanged. Property & People.

DCK’s tradition of service has been built on over a century of local real estate knowledge and experience.

The Company’s earliest foundations date back to 1900 when John William Carter hung his Company shingle in Bull Street declaring J.W Carter & Sons open for business. Leonard Livingston Dungey shortly followed in 1920 with the opening of L.L Dungey & Sons and in 1961; Vin Ketterer formed his own company J.V Ketterer after getting his start in real estate with the Carter firm.

In 1982 John Carter’s grandson, Stephen Carter and Leonard Dungey’s grandson, Rick Dungey merged the Dungey and Carter firms bringing together the long and esteemed history of two of Bendigo’s oldest and most respected family owned and operated real estate Companies. The successful merger of Dungey & Carter Pty Ltd with J.V. Ketterer Pty Ltd then followed in March 1996 under the directorship of Vin Ketterer’s son, Robert Ketterer to form the current company, Dungey Carter Ketterer Pty. Ltd (DCK Real Estate Agents).

Rick’s daughter Georgina Dungey joined the team in 1997 before becoming a Director in 2006, proudly cementing DCK’s history as Bendigo’s only fourth generation locally owned and operated Real Estate Company.

Under the current Directorship Group – Robert Ketterer (MD), Matt Bowles and Georgina Dungey - the Company continues to grow in both size and stature to today represent one of the most successful and well respected independently branded real estate agencies in Victoria.

DCK offers a complete real estate service specialising in Residential Sales, Residential Property Management, Commercial & Industrial Sales, Leasing, Management and Clearing Sales.

Our formula for success is simple. If our clients have a great result, then so do we.
