“They also embody the Raine & Horne brand and always embrace wholeheartedly our groups’ latest innovations such as Amplify and Digikit.
“Exceptionally savvy operators, who aren’t afraid of hard work, Peter and Lachlan have overseen the massive expansion of their business over the last decade and half, including the opening of a residential office in Dee Why and Raine & Horne Commercial Northern Beaches in 2007, when they acquired a major rent roll from one of our major commercial competitors.”

On receiving the Max Raine award, Mr Mosedale said, “There’s a lot of very deserving people within Raine & Horne who have served the company and the industry longer than we have, so we are proud recipients of this award.
“Max Raine is an industry icon, and we are delighted the Raine family is still at the helm through Angus. We had the pleasure of meeting Max, which has helped us understand the true heritage of the brand.
“We’d like to thank the Raine family for the opportunity they have given to Lachlan, Vincent and myself.
“We’ve been given all the tools to carry out the journey of growing a real estate office. We picked up the Raine & Horne toolbelt, and we encourage others to do the same.”
