Ray began his real estate career in Sydney in 1980 and has been a licensed agent for 22 years. Prior to real estate, Ray was employed as an accountant for a large Australian-based company with local and overseas markets.
“During my career I have worked through every real estate cycle from peak market conditions to economic recessions and everything in between. This depth of experience is invaluable in understanding the very different market conditions that exist in each real estate cycle”.
Ray attributes his success in real estate to his personal values of honesty and integrity, professional attitude and commitment and his depth of experience and knowledge of the local market and the real estate industry.
“Buying and selling real estate in one of the most important decisions most people experience in their lifetime. When it’s time to make those decisions it’s important to be able to rely on someone with experience and knowledge to guide you through the process. With 28 years of experience in the real estate industry I can confidently assist people in all areas of property investment”.
Having owned Raine & Horne Nelson Bay from 1995 to April 2017, Ray believes a business should never outperform its leader and Ray’s philosophy was simple..."I expect results from my team, I expect results from myself, and this is how I lead my team by example".
Ray is delighted to continue working with this very successful business under its new ownership.
“ Dear Ray, Olivia and Tracey, We have been in the chaos of moving house so i apologise for the delay but I just wanted to say thank you all so much for all your help in the sale of our soldiers point unit which settled recently; it was such a great result to have a buyer so quickly, and whilst there were some 'challenges' with their demands that followed, poor Tracey copped the brunt of that more than we did!! You have all been delightful and extremely professional to deal with so both Greg and I thank you very much. Next time we look at an investment in that area we will come and see you. Of course, we will insist on bright mustard carpet - NOT!! Best wishes ”

“ Dear Ray & Steve, I just wanted to send this letter to express my thanks to you both for the sale of my family home. From the time we first sat down to discuss the process of going on the market to the exchange of contracts has been such an easy process thanks to your constant communication with me. Your presentation, honesty and hard work ethic has been terrific and as a result of this I have got the price I set out to get and it was done in a 9 week period. Many thanks for such a great outcome which was extremely important to myself and my family. Please also pass on my thanks to the rest of the team. Great work! Kind regards, ”
“ Dear Ray, I sincerely thank you for handling the sale of my father’s home in Corlette. You came highly recommended to us from several satisfied friends who had previously sold their homes with you and from the first moment we met you we felt instantly at ease with our decision to appoint you as our agent. Your experience and expertise in preparing the home for sale as well as your marketing and negotiations resulted in a quick and seemless sale for us allowing Dad to move on to the next chapter in his life. We thank you again and cannot speak highly enough of you and your team at Raine & Horne. ”
“ To Raine & Horne Nelson Bay. A BIG thank you to Ray Noonan, Olivia Mayne & staff. From the very start of our dealings with Raine & Horne we found the staff most helpful. Not having bought or sold property for over 40 years they guided us in achieving our aim, from the appraisal to the sale of our property. Not only did they sell our property they were most helpful in finding a suitable home. Nothing seemed to be any trouble to the staff of Raine & Horne Nelson. Thanks again ”
