Raine & Horne - The Brand & History
In 1883, real estate pioneers Tom Raine and Joseph Horne opened the doors of
Australia’s iconic property firm Raine & Horne for the first time.
Operating from Wentworth Court, Elizabeth Street in Sydney, Raine & Horne adhered to a set of business practices that have been maintained to the present day. The property pioneers committed to personalised service and to meeting a client’s property needs across sales, leasing, management and consulting services for all types of property.
By the 1970s, and driven by the enthusiasm of current Chairman Max Raine, the Raine & Horne network stretched across Sydney. Not satisfied with the extent of expansion, the Raine & Horne Board decided that Raine & Horne would become only the second property group to pursue a franchising business model. This proved a major watershed for Raine & Horne, which opened its first franchised office, Raine & Horne LiverpoolNSW, in 1976. As a result, Raine & Horne now has offices in the ACT, QLD, SA, NT, TAS, VIC, and WA as well as offices globally.
Raine & Horne is today one of the oldest privately owned firms in the southern hemisphere, surviving world wars, booms, busts and depressions.
It is now into its fourth generation of family ownership, with Angus Raine taking over as the company’s CEO in December 2006.
