New proprietors at Raine & Horne Lithgow

Lynette Way and Jaharn Turner, the new proprietors of Raine & Horne Lithgow, have been real estate colleagues for the past 10 years and have a whopping 40 years worth of property experience between them.

Most recently they owned and operated a Lithgow estate office since 2006 that was linked to another property group.

However, Lynette and Jaharn decided the time was ripe for change and jumped at the opportunity to take the reins at Raine & Horne Lithgow when the business went on the market.

“We didn’t hesitate in researching Raine & Horne when the franchise came up for sale,” Lynette said.

“Raine & Horne has always been extremely well respected in the industry and offers excellent tools, services and training for its offices.”

With over 25 years experience in the real estate industry, Lynette has expertise in all aspects of the business including administration, buying, selling and property management. Likewise, Jaharn Turner has over 15 years of real estate experience.

“I’m passionate about real estate and I love the thrill of meeting new people and helping them find a new property or sell a much loved home,” Jaharn said.

“The first thing that struck me about Raine & Horne was the amount of support given to franchisees, especially when compared to other franchises.”

The shift to Raine & Horne is timely as Lynette and Jaharn believe that Lithgow, just a two hour drive from Sydney, is squarely on the investment radar of city buyers. 

“The Sydney market is edging people out, so savvy investors are looking for areas outside the city,” Jaharn said.

Lynette added that two to three bedroom houses in Lithgow, complete with a lock-up-garage, were selling for between $180,000 and $200,000.

“The rental return on these properties is also good at around $220 per week,” she said.

Raine & Horne CEO, Angus Raine, said Lynette and Jaharn had a wealth of real estate experience.

"We are pleased to welcome them into the Raine & Horne family," Mr Raine said.
