Leading real estate brand, Raine & Horne, is delighted to announce a significant milestone in its growth strategy with the launch of a new office in Wellington Point, further extending its reach in Brisbane.

This office launch signifies a pivotal moment for Raine & Horne as it continues to bolster its network in Queensland and its market prominence in Brisbane during its 140th year of operation.

The newly established Raine & Horne Wellington Point will be spearheaded by experienced principal, Darren McCormack. This strategic expansion aligns with the brand's commitment to delivering high-quality real estate services within the City of Redland region.

Mr Steve Worrad, General Manager, Queensland, Raine & Horne, stated, "Positioned at 3/368 Main Road, Wellington Point, Raine & Horne Wellington Point will serve as a central hub for both sales and property management for the region, offering an array of services tailored to meet the dynamic needs of the local community."

Mr Worrad added, "Darren's direct and results-driven approach has solidified his reputation as a respected figure within the industry. We eagerly anticipate collaborating with him and the Raine & Horne Wellington Point team."

Raine & Horne Wellington Point primed for expansion and recruitment

This expansion marks a pivotal shift for the Wellington Point office, previously operating under a different brand.

Mr McCormack, a resident of the area, shared, "After meticulous consideration and assessment, we opted to rebrand and unite with the Raine & Horne network, renowned for its robust structure and culture, support, and unwavering commitment to excellence."

He continued, "We aspire to be part of a growing brand that can aid us in attracting and retaining top-tier staff. Recruitment has posed considerable challenges under our previous brand.

“Therefore, we are enthused to embark on a fresh recruitment drive under Raine & Horne Wellington Point, reinvigorating our business expansion.

"I should highlight our current positive standing as well, managing a diverse portfolio of approximately 90 properties. Our team adeptly handles property management and real estate sales," he emphasised.

With a weighty 27-year background in the real estate sector, after beginning his working career as a diesel mechanic after leaving school, Mr McCormack has previously led offices associated with other real estate brands, including multiple principal roles in Wellington Point.

According to Mr McCormack the transition to Raine & Horne is driven by the aspiration to be part of a brand that champions growth, innovation, and community involvement. A decisive factor in this decision is Raine & Horne's suite of technology first, notably the Amplify platform, Australia's most advanced property marketing technology that reaches more buyers by identifying their online behaviour and profile.

Mr McCormack commented, "Raine & Horne's social media marketing platform, Amplify, has left a strong impression. I've been actively engaging with the software, and the onboarding training has been seamless."

The launch of the Wellington Point office aligns with Raine & Horne's 140th year of operation, underscoring the company's enduring legacy and dedication to serving clients and local communities with integrity and expertise.

An active Wellington Point resident, Mr McCormack, also exhibits exceptional support for the local community. In 2022, he played a key role in relaunching the Wellington Point Traders group, orchestrating a community Christmas party that was integrated into the Wellington Point Christmas Markets, drawing an impressive turnout of 5,000 to 7,000 attendees.

With a laser focus on the distinctive attributes of the Wellington Point market, the Raine & Horne team eagerly anticipates the upcoming Spring season and the plethora of opportunities it presents.

“Wellington Point offers a diverse range of properties, encompassing entry-level units from $500,000 to multi-million-dollar waterfront estate,” said Mr McCormack.

He added, "Our aim is to deliver unparalleled real estate services underpinned by a robust brand that values transparency, innovation, and client satisfaction."
