FIRST National real estate business has opened its doors in Ripley Valley to take advantage of the area's emerging market.
Co-owner of the new office Steve Athanates said Ripley Valley was set to be Australia's largest master-planned community.
Mr Athanates said he expected the massive development to provide more than 25,000 future home sites.
"It's going to be a community in its own right that will be bigger than Springfield," he said.
"There will be huge amounts of investment opportunity.
"A lot of people are seeing it as a great place to live with easy access to the city via public transport and new, upgraded highway links."
The new office celebrated its official opening on the weekend.
It is located on the corner of Ripley and Scott Rds.
