In August 2014, Ray White Epsom opened, with new business owner Heather Walton. During the first 12 months, the business has been one of the Group’s leading new start growth offices. The sales team at Ray White Epsom has continued to grow, and with Heather Walton leading the sales team as an Elite member, the office has received several high-profile appointments. This has given Heather the confidence to open a purpose designed Ray White auction room, and gives the business the entire footprint of the location at 349A Manukau Road.
Heather Walton said, “In making the decision to take on the additional area, our profile had continued to lift in the area and ensuring clients had a local community-based auction room, with our high profile award winning auctioneer was an important point of difference in comparison to other agencies in the area. While the additional space is designed as an auction room, it will also serve as an information centre for clients as our business starts to add divisional services, including property management.”
Carey Smith, Chief Executive of Ray White New Zealand, said, “Ray White Epsom has had a significant impact on the marketplace through Epsom. The business has created a local personality, with Heather leading her team. The additional space has always been part of the growth plan for Ray White Epsom and when the opportunity came up, the space was secured and will allow the business to grow further and offer a local auction room that will be unique in the area of Epsom.”
