Central Coast agent takes sales gong at major real estate awards

Leading Central Coast agent, Andrew Sorensen, Co-Principal, Raine & Horne Charmhaven, has beaten some of the Australian real estate industry’s best in winning the prestigious Top Salesperson (Number of Sales) for 2012 in Sydney on Saturday, 18 February.

“This is a tremendous effort from Andrew and demonstrates the strength of the Wyong Shire market,” said Angus Raine, CEO, Raine & Horne.

Charmhaven’s affordability is a big plus for young families and first home buyers, and it’s possible to buy three bedroom, one bathroom homes from less than $270,000,” said Mr Raine.

“At the same time, Charmhaven’s proximity to Sydney and Newcastle via the F3 makes it one of NSW’s standout commuter belt locations.”

“While there is growing demand in Charmhaven for affordable homes, Andrew Sorensen and the team at Raine & Horne Charmhaven have rapidly increased sales in recent times by embracing auctions.

“Andrew also attends training religiously, and uses Raine & Horne’s broad collection of products and services such as our industry-best business operating support system, rh Compass.”

Additionally, Mr Sorensen was elevated to the Raine & Horne Chairman’s Club for sales for 2012. He also grabbed second in the Top Auction Lister category and placed fifth in the Top Salesperson – Proprietor (Dollar Value).

“Clearly we have an affordable entry level market, and auctions played a huge part in our success in 2011,” said Mr Sorensen, who estimated his office quadrupled the number of auctions it conducted last year compared to 2010.

“I’d really urge homeowners to consider taking their home to auction as it puts a deadline on buyers. Consequently, it can speed up a home sale, while always delivering the best possible price for a Charmhaven property.

“We were also systematic about how we ran Raine & Horne Charmhaven as a business in 2011 and have committed wholeheartedly to Raine & Horne’s products and services.”
