Raine & Horne launch new Berry office

 

Leading South Coast real estate agents Alex Cochrane and Mark Stewart are set to open a third real estate office in 18 months with the establishment of Raine & Horne Berry at 2/65 Queens Street, Berry.

Leading South Coast real estate agents Alex Cochrane and Mark Stewart are set to open a third real estate office in 18 months with the establishment of Raine & Horne Berry at 2/65 Queens Street, Berry.
The dynamic duo, who already own Raine & Horne Nowra and Raine & Horne Shoalhaven Heads, will be joined by Raine & Horne CEO Angus Raine to launch the new office on Monday 30 November at 5pm.
“It makes sense to establish a third office as we have previous experience in Berry,” says Mr Cochrane, who has previous experience as an agent and proprietor in the picturesque town.
“A third office also means we can better service the property needs of our clients as Berry is around 20 minutes by car from Nowra and the green pastures of Kangaroo Valley.
“Berry is a strong lifestyle market for retirees from Sydney. Many have retired to small acreages in the region. When they down size they often move to a house in Berry.
There are also younger families shifting to Berry from the NSW capital. “Many of these are people who are able to use the internet and the phone to service their client base in Sydney,” explains Mr Cochrane.
“The big attraction of Berry for younger families is the ability to bring their children up in a quiet, village atmosphere, which also appeals to retirees. 
Mr Cochrane also says as a lifestyle and tourist destination Berry compares favourably with Bowral and the Southern Highlands, while providing excellent value for money and is also comfortable two hour drive from Sydney. 
According to the latest statistics from PriceFinder, the average home price in Berry is $470,118 compared with $504,046 in Bowral.
“There are quarter acre blocks in the old part of Berry but the majority are smaller. There is the Garden Estate area where there is half and one acre blocks and these are popular with people moving from Sydney.  
“Berry is also well located with a thriving bar and restaurant trade along both sides of the Princess Highway, which runs through the town, while the major hospitals are in Nowra, which is only 20 minutes by car. Likewise the famous Seven Mile beach is just 10 minutes away and you can be in Bowral in 45 minutes.”  
The Raine & Horne brand champion says the decision to open another office with the famous yellow and black colours is a no brainer. 
“We are thrilled Angus Raine will be at the opening and the link with Raine & Horne group has certainly contributed to the growth of our business over the last 18 months.
“Raine & Horne is a market leader in the South Coast. It provides leading edge IT systems and first class back-up and support,” explains Mr Cochrane. 
Angus Raine, CEO, Raine & Horne says, “The team at Raine & Horne Berry will be first-rate additions to our exceptional network along the NSW south coast. Alex and Mark are well-known for their commitment to the local community and property consumers,” Angus Raine said
