We are pleased to announce the continuing commitment to the Ray White Group of Ray White Ponsonby. The office, under the ownership of Bryce Earwaker and Simon Damerell have renewed with a long term agreement with the group. The office continues to be one of the top three businesses in Ray White New Zealand.
After taking ownership in 1996, Bryce Earwaker, who was a significant salesperson with another brand, took what was then the United Realty office from number 72 in the network to number 12 in its first full year of trading. This was the fastest growth that any office had achieved in our network. In late 1997 Simon Damerell joined Bryce Earwaker to form a partnership that is now recognised as one of the leading real estate offices in Auckland. Consistently being awarded as the top market share, the top marketing and one of the top turnover offices in the Group, the office has an enviable position as the market leader.
The office market share is in excess of 35% in Herne Bay, St Marys Bay, Freemans Bay and Ponsonby. The office also holds in excess of a 20% market share in Grey Lynn and Westmere.
The culture of the office is set on a platform of marketing and service. Each year the business has grown on this ethos and now has a return client rate of over 70%.
In talking about the renewal with Ray White, Bryce Earwaker made comment that he believed the Group has continued to assist the business being at the forefront of technology, marketing and staff development. He went on to say that the culture they have developed within their business works well with the family values of Ray White and the commitment of the Ray White Group to their members.
Simon Damerell, the co-owner of the office, talked about their plans for 2011. He said the office is strengthening its management structure with a blend of youth and knowledge. Providing resources to the team and to the marketplace is the point of difference for the office. He went on to say “The office has always had top sales consultants and property managers and ensuring the environment is the best in the marketplace enables the team to achieve outstanding outcomes for their clients.”
The Ray White Ponsonby office is now in its 15th year of trading with the current owners. The office embraces online marketing through its website www.rwponsonby.co.nz and also interacts through social media on Facebook and Twitter.
The office is located at 239 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby.
