Collingwood hero Levi Greenwood will celebrate an off-field victory as he returns to the ‘G for the ANZAC Day clash.

“It was a massive team effort between us and Levi, but he was a great vendor that constantly kept the place styled and sparkling,” Mr Pillios said.
“He hasn’t bought his next place but after two successful sales in Northcote and South Melbourne he’s looking forward to buying another.”
The property was swooped on by a local businessman who planned to live at the address.
Greenwood completely renovated the single-fronted terrace house over two years, which CoreLogic shows be bought for $920,000 in 2016.
He also notched a top result on a Northcote Edwardian that he updated and sold for $1,307,500 in July 2017.
The 2018 Grand Finalist is completing his carpentry apprenticeship, which he said would help during future flips.
The South Melbourne sale was notched in the same week Greenwood was called up to play in the ANZAC Day clash again Essendon.
The two-bedroom terrace passed in at auction in December before it sold slightly below the original $1.2-$1.3 million price guide this week.
The 30-year-old told the Herald Sun when it was first listed the house he shared with his partner Elly was in a bad shape when he bought it.
“When I took it over, I put a golf ball on the ground and it would roll from one end of the house to the other,” Greenwood said.
He transformed it into a light-filled abode that flows seamlessly from the wide entrance hallway past two downstairs bedrooms, a marble bathroom and to the open-plan living and kitchen area. There’s also a backyard deck decorated with a beach mural that also featured a black and white colour scheme which Greenwood joked was “all for Collingwood”.
“It feels like you’re in Bali or Hawaii, anywhere you want,” he said.
