The recent activity in the real estate market throughout provincial areas has been subdued. In many instances the sales numbers are less than 50% of what they were just two years ago. This has brought changes that are continuing in the industry and it is those businesses which make decisions based on their future that will continue to grow and establish a market viable position.
In Putaruru the Ray White office has merged with the Waikato Real Estate office to make it the leading office in the Putaruru district. The offices coming together combines the strengths of the businesses and brings together a number of significant salespeople which will grow the team in both the rural and residential sectors. Jeff Green, General Manager for the Waikato Real Estate Group, said that “Merging the two businesses together and bringing the brands under Ray White allows us to establish a dominant position with market share in the Putaruru area. Our leading rural salesperson, Don McKenzie, has a highly successful track record in Putaruru rural sales and with him joining the Ray White office it will strengthen the already existing rural sales team which is headed up by Phil Wickham. The property management divisions will come together and this will give the office a portfolio of 135 properties which will be the leading property management business in the area.”
The Putaruru office is located on Tirau Street in Putaruru. The office actively markets online and their listing portfolio can be seen at www.rwputaruru.co.nz
