Raine & Horne adds to strong regional presence, launching 12th central coast office
Leading real estate Superbrand Raine & Horne is adding to its strong presence on the thriving Central Coast of NSW, with the launch of its 12th real estate office in the region at Toowoon Bay.
“The team at Raine & Horne Toowoon Bay has some serious experience in marketing homes in the 2261 postcode and currently hold street records for sales in Liddell Street, Shelly Beach and Lord Street, Shelly Beach,” said Angus Raine, CEO, Raine & Horne.
“Craig Fisher recently sold a five bedroom, three bathroom home with a four car garage and pool at 55 Liddell Street for $910,000, which broke his previous street record by $230,000.
“The team also secured a record $595,000 for 42 Lord Street, Shelly Beach – a three bedroom, two bathroom house, with a double garage and pool. This beat their previous three bedroom street record of $460,000,” added Mr Raine.
“Both properties were sold using the auction process.”
Mr Fisher, a Central Coast real estate agent since 2005, confirmed that he and his business partners decided to make the switch to Raine & Horne to take advantage of the real estate Superbrand’s market presence on the Central Coast and nationally.
“We are looking to build a larger business and it made sense to align ourselves with Raine & Horne, which has significant cut-through with all real estate consumers from aspiring home owners, to top end buyers and investors,” said Mr Fisher.
“Likewise, Raine & Horne’s unique Global Database linking over 1 million real estate consumers across the country means that Toowoon Bay homeowners can market their properties to buyers located around Australia and globally.”
Along with Raine & Horne’s superior name in the community, which has been built over the last 129 years, Mr Fisher maintained that the real estate Superbrand offers more user-friendly IT systems and exceptional business support.
“We are excited about linking with a real estate group that advocates the use of auctions to fast-track the sales process,” said Mr Fisher, who is an accredited auctioneer and will provide clients with onsite auction services.
“We really recommend that Central Coast homeowners consider the value of taking their homes to auction, as it takes the price out of the equation.
“An auction allows homeowners to test the market, while it puts a deadline on buyers to make a decision, which can fast-track the selling process.”
Mr Murray, who was General Manager of Lee Woodward’s successful training business, Real Estate Academy, says the brand new Raine & Horne office is ideally situated at Toowoon Bay to service the entire 2261 postcode.
“Our office is strategically located right in the centre of a growing residential and commercial corridor that includes the suburbs of Bateau Bay, Bay Village, Berkeley Vale, Blue Bay, Chittaway Bay, Chittaway Point, Glenning Valley, Killarney Vale, Long Jetty, Shelly Beach, The Entrance, The Entrance North, Tumbi Umbi as well as Toowoon Bay,” said Mr Murray.
As a consequence, Raine & Horne Toowoon Bay will be marketing a broad range of residential real estate, from entry level homes, through to prestige beachfront and acreage properties.
“The postcode of 2261 is an exciting and diverse real estate market,” said Mr Murray.
“For example, prices start in the low $200,000s and extend right up to $4 million.”
In addition, Mr Murray assured those homeowners who list their properties for sale with Raine & Horne Toowoon Bay that they will receive the very highest level of personalised customer service.
“If a homeowner decides to sell a home with Raine & Horne Toowoon Bay, they can be sure that they’ll be putting their most important asset, their home, in the hands of the owners of the business,” confirmed Mr Murray.
“Carla, Craig and I will personally work with homeowners from the start of the selling process through to settlement, which will help deliver the very best results.”
