About Us

A little about Raine & Horne Double Bay | Bondi Beach…

Raine & Horne Double Bay | Bondi Beach has been part of the fabric of the eastern suburb’s property market since the late 1960s. Today, we are one of Australia’s most successful real estate businesses offering award-winning sales and property management services. 

In 1969 Raine & Horne decided to open its first suburban office in Double Bay with real estate doyen Max Raine at the helm. Raine & Horne Double Bay initially operated as a company office before changing to a franchise model. 

In 2001, Raine & Horne Double Bay | Bondi Beach changed hands and ever since, we have been Raine & Horne’s flagship office, winning virtually every significant sales award nationally for the last two decades. 

Speaking of awards, today, our team is led by multiple award-winning agent Ric Serrao, an extremely successful agent and business owner. Ric is recognised as one of our region’s leading real estate specialists and has regularly been recognised as Raine & Horne’s best sales agent nationally since 2009. Additionally, Ric has won multiple industry awards and is consistently rated among REB’s top ten agents in Australia. 

Why can Raine & Horne Double Bay | Bondi Beach help you?

Our multi-award-winning family owned, and operated business has been recognised for the past 21 consecutive years as Raine & Horne’s top-performing office nationally in both number of sales and dollar value. This consistent recognition reflects our team’s drive and dedication to providing the best and timeliest service for our clients.  

Thanks to smartphones, everything and everyone wants instant responses. We transitioned from communicating by mail to email around 2001, and it was acceptable then if you received an email in the morning and replied by the afternoon. Now we recognise our clients want an instant reply, and as such our office is now 24 hours a day, seven days a week real estate office.

Culture is a word that often gets bandied about in business. However, our team culture is central to our decades of sales and property management success. We all genuinely like each other, and this level of respect enables our sales, property management, accounts, compliance, and administration departments work hand in glove to support all our clients. Our relaxed and team-oriented culture within our office helps us achieve outstanding outcomes for all our clients.
