Raine & Horne Rural flying high in Northern Australia

Media release - 9th April, 2015

Raine & Horne Rural has secured high-flying, northern Australian stock and station agent, Bram Pollock, to head up its new offices Raine & Horne Rural Atherton and Raine & Horne Rural Julia Creek.

Mr Pollock will continue to operate from his current office at 12 Shaw Street, Julia Creek, where for the past 15 years he has delivered rural real estate and stock trading services to local producers.

“Bram plans a rapid expansion which will involve delivering rural real estate services to a market which extends 800 kilometres from Julia Creek in Queensland’s far north west, to the fertile Atherton Tablelands on the east coast,” said Angus Raine, Executive Chairman and CEO of Raine & Horne Rural.

Bram PollockTo underline his commitment to customer service and rural markets in Australia’s north, in 2011 Mr Pollock secured the ownership of a Cessna 182.

“Via his trusty aircraft, Bram will not only service clients in Queensland but right across remote regions of Northern Australia,” noted Mr Raine.

Mr Pollock’s decision to link with Raine & Horne Rural, which launched offices in Sydney and Brisbane during 2014, is also a massive boost to the expansion of the rural brand nationally, according to Mr Raine.

Mr Pollock, who started in Cloncurry as a stock and station agent in 2000, has worked in the rural sector for more than 20 years and is very passionate about Northern Australia.

“Our core business has traditionally centred on livestock trading into feedlots, re-stockers, backgrounders and the live export trade. Yet over the past few years, we have increasingly focussed on the rural property business, which is why we have linked with Raine & Horne Rural,” said Mr Pollock, a licenced real estate agent and auctioneer.

“I’ve enjoyed 15 years as a livestock trader and am always looking for additional opportunities to extend the reach of my business, which is why I am enthusiastic about the renewed focus on rural real estate.

 “We will continue to deliver our stock trading services throughout north-western Queensland and the Northern Territory, along with property sales, while also focusing on rural real estate sales in and around the Atherton Tableland region.”

 “The group has also provided me with support every step of the way, with Raine & Horne Rural Brisbane’s Danny Bukowski proving a great source of advice to help me with the transition.

“It’s a fresh brand that is new to northern Australia and it shares my passion for the far north.”
