Raine & Horne makes agent’s business dream come true in Toukley

July 9, 2019

Led by experienced local agent Matt Rogers, Raine & Horne Toukley offers a comprehensive range of real estate sales and property management services to owners, investors, tenants, and landlords in Toukley.

Mr Rogers will lead the sales team at the brand-new office, with wife Kerry overseeing property management and administration.

“Opening a real estate office in Toukley is a dream come true,” said Mr Rogers, who worked with Raine & Horne Budgewoi before launching the new office.

“It’s been a major life goal of mine. I am the father of four children Zoe (13), Emma (11), Dean (10) and Kellie (5) and want to leave a legacy for them when I’m finished.

“The opportunity to open an office in Toukley with Raine & Horne presented, and I jumped at the chance because this is a suburb, I have been working in for 19 years.”

Since 2000 Mr Rogers has worked with several local independent offices and larger network groups and has consistently been the leading agent for the Central Coast within those businesses. The new principal has regularly been a top agent on RateMyAgent for Noraville, Budgewoi, and Toukley.

Angus Raine, Executive Chairman, Raine & Horne is delighted that Mr Rogers has joined the 136-year-old, family owned and operated business.

“There is very little that Matt doesn’t know about the Toukley market or real estate sales and property management, and he will be an excellent addition to our network.

“He is well-known within the local community with Zoe, Emma, Dean, and Kellie attending Budgewoi Public School, while Matt is also a long-term supporter of the Toukley Soccer Club.

“I’m excited about working with Matt and Kerrie and bringing our unique real estate services to the Toukley region.”

Raine & Horne’s industry-first products such as Amplify was elemental to Mr Roger’s decision to join the global superbrand.

Launched in 2018, Amplify is a cutting-edge digital marketing technology. Using the very latest digital programming, predictive analytics, and artificial intelligence, this tool places multiple property ads across Facebook, Instagram, and Google. It targets audiences based on their online profile and behaviour, placing properties in front of both active and passive consumers.

“We have exclusive rights to this technology in Australia that puts us ahead of the curve, and with this, our brand has been exposed over 45 million times, with our vendor’s properties reaching a total of over six million consumers,” said Mr Raine.

Mr Rogers adds, “Amplify targets the right buyers with the right properties. It’s excellent.”

Real estate affordability will continue to attract buyers to Toukley, where it is still possible to buy a three-bedroom house for a price in the low $400,000s.

“The next 12 months will be positive with enquiries robust, and we still have first home buyers and investors jostling for stock. We also have upgraders and downsizers.

“Even suburbs just 20 minutes south of us such as The Entrance and Bateau Bay aren’t attracting this level of interest as buyers have been priced out of these markets.”

Healthy yields of 4.5%-5.5% are proving highly desirable for Toukley investors, noted Mr Rogers.

“Many investors will secure a property, add a granny flat. This savvy addition can push the yield on the property to 8% - 10%. Toukley is just a terrific market for investors.”
