Owner-occupiers and investors vie for Yamba property


Yamba's property market is enjoying a surge in strong property enquiries from owner-occupiers and investors, according to a leading local real estate agent.

Raine & Horne Yamba proprietor Denise Jillett said that while enquiry was strong, the Yamba market was also experiencing positive sales volume.

“We’ve had a good mix of owner occupiers and investors and high demand for properties in the lower end of the market - up to $400,000. This sector continues to be a strong performer,” Ms Jillett said.

“There has also been promising sales in the prestige market for waterfront properties.

Leading the charge into the Yamba property market were southern Queenslanders attracted to the excellent lifestyle.

“South-east Queenslanders have been buying, with a view to retiring in Yamba,” Ms Jillet explained.

A strong market is not the only cause for celebration at the Raine & Horne Yamba office. The office earned an award at the 2009 Raine & Horne NSW/ACT Chairman’s Awards, held at the Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney recently.

Ms Jillett was elevated to the Chairman’s Club, a prestigious award, which recognises Raine & Horne’s leading salespeople in 2009. She attributes her success to good business practices developed over 10 years in the industry, and loyal clients.

“It was an honour to win this award. I think it is due to my excellent reputation in this area, repeat business and building a solid database over many years."
