After completing a Bachelor of Commerce, Shann comfortably completed post graduate studies and qualified as a Chartered Accountant. Within a few more years Shann was operating his own consulting business. But, after a few successful property trades in the early 90’s, Shann realised that Real Estate was his passion and future.
Shann wound down his consulting commitments and joined his brother and together made Raine & Horne one of the most reputable and recognisable real estate brands in Mosman.
Shann’s professional training helped him identify the value and synergy of a first class rental business back in the late 90’s,something other real estate operators are just starting to realise.
Since then, Shann has made it his specific mission to ensure a professional quality of service is maintained by designing and implementing water tight procedures and becoming personally entrenched in the property management operations (including property sales and guidance on acquisitions and asset improvements). Shann thinks that between himself and his brother Brendan, they have all bases covered:
“Too often sales people run agencies, which can impact their earning capacity by forcing them to focus on management tasks that they are not terribly adept at anyway. We are lucky in that we have the best of both worlds – a focused sales force and a flawless back office”.
“ Shann was a fantastic partner as we trepidaciously sought to rent our newly built multi-million $$ home. His local knowledge of Sydney best practises, pricing and strategies to deliver maximum yield delivered immediate results. His ability to expertly screen potential renters with an eye to protecting our asset but still finding people who would enjoy / take care of our home was done right 1st time each time. Over our 4 years together, Shann & team were pro-active in tending to the house’s needs & upkeep whilst ensuring all stakeholders were happy which resulted in a limited tenant churn. As a result we were able to show & sell our place without tenant issues and Shann delivered a smooth exit. Overall he was a superb partner in managing our property and would highly recommend to those renting / selling multi-million $$$ properties ”
“ Shann Warner managed our one bedroomed apartment at 37/22 Mosman Street, Mosman, NSW from 4th February 2014 until 19th December 2014. We were delighted with his highly professional service. Shann was very efficient and delivered on his promises quickly and consistently. He was responsive to any request from the tenant or us as clients. Shann was recommended to us by local friends and their recommendation was certainly justified. It was a pleasure to deal with Shann and we will definitely recommend him to other friends and will be contacting him again when we want to re-let our Mosman apartment. ”
“ Shann Warner of Raine and Horne Mosman has been looking after our rental flat at 9/57 Prince Albert St for a number of years and in November 2014 he managed the very successful sale of the property. His performance in both roles has been exemplary. He managed a number of tenancy changes very competently. The flat sale was handled extremely well and he obtained a price well above the reserve. His advice has always been very sound and in all his dealings with us he has always been very courteous and his integrity unquestioned. ”
“ Shann and his team at Raine and Horne Mosman has managed my property and those of my extended family for over a decade. Without reservation I commend his services to any prospective property owners, be that renting or selling your property. Personally, Shann is articulate, responsive and a provider of great advice. He has never upsold his services or pressured me unlike others I have come across. Most recently he assisted with the sale of my Cremorne point property and I could not be happier with the result. His sale strategy was well thought out and executed. The result was terrific. ”
“ Owning property in Australia whilst living overseas is extremely risky unless you have someone extremely reliable to manage and maintain the property. Shann managed our Mosman property for over ten years with a superb level of professionalism and attention to detail. He made us feel extremely comfortable that the property was in good hands and that the tenants where kept happy. We always felt as though Shann managed the property as if it was his own with a real sense of responsibility to us and the tenants. Brendan also did a great job keeping us appraised of the sales market and was able to find us the right buyer, at the right price and at the right time in the cycle all within a very short period of time. I would have no hesitation recommending Shann and Brendon who both did a wonderful job for us. ”
“ We appointed Mr. Shann Warner in 2011 as the Managing Agent of our investment property in Mosman. Shann remained the Managing Agent until December 2014 at which time we sold the property. Throughout the term, Shann managed the property with professionalism and diligence. We relied extensively on Shann as we were based overseas for the entire period that we owned the investment property, therefore we needed to appoint a Managing Agent that we could rely upon and trust. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Shann Warner to any Property Investor. ”
“ I recently sold a unit in Bradley's Head Rd with Shann Warner's help. I have sold several units recently and found Shann to be the only agent who took all the pain out of the sale. He attended to absolutely everything and then got a fabulous price for it. It sold for $300,000 above estimates that other agents had given me! He was extremely pleasant to deal with and I had every confidence that the unit would present well and sell well. It did. Thank you Shann. ”
“ We live in a world where the average person always finds the time to complain about things that may not be going to plan and or about service levels that do not meet expectations. In saying that, we always try and take the time out to compliment a business and or their respective staff where we feel that they have gone beyond the call of duty and exceeded expectations. We have the pleasure of being looked after with our rental property in Mosman by Raine & Horne Mosman. The property is really well managed in every way one could expect and more from a managing agent. Some examples include their availability when the tenant needs a question answered so much so that one night in early January, well past 10 pm, our tenant had locked himself out and Shann answered his call and called me to see if I had a key that he could pick up and go help the tenant to get back into the apartment. This was done much to the happiness of a stranded tenant. We couldn’t ask for more from a managing agent as their willingness to help ensures the best possible outcome with a tenancy where the home is better looked after. This service helps retain a good quality of tenant. ”
