Congratulations to our southern most office in New Zealand, Ray White Invercargill, who is celebrating 15 years within our family.
Ray White New Zealand chief executive Carey Smith said the Invercargill team were a wonderful asset to our business led by such a high calibre business owners in Brendan Mason and Philip Brough (pictured top right above, L-R) and their sales management team led by John Murphy.
“Brendan brought his career to Ray White in 2002 and has been an Elite performer personally over a countless number of years. He’s consistently been in the top 10 percent for sale of our group nationally for many years,” Mr Smith said.
“He’s committed to the highest customer experience possible and serves his city well.”
Mr Mason said the biggest change he’d recognised over the last 15 years was that Ray White sales agents were now so much are more marketers.
“Expectations have lifted dramatically over the years from our vendors to up the house profiles. The after sales service has also changed a lot too and our mindset is to look after our future relationships. We are in the people business and we are in it for the long haul.”
“I really rate Ray White as we feel as we are part of the family and the personal communication makes all the difference,” Mr Mason said.
“I can’t speak highly enough of Carey Smith, our New Zealand chief executive, who has supported our business right from day one and the fact he always makes an effort to be with us personally in great times and not so great times goes a long way with me.”
Mr Mason is very proud of the fact that his team has produced three Elite and five Premiers level salespeople in its first two years of operation.
“My achievement of number one status in New Zealand in terms of sales numbers in 2004 with 107.5 lists and sells was a real highlight. I did that all with no personal assistant, but a great office administration” he said.
“I have loved watching our team start with just two agents and grow to 18 and I like helping them to grow their businesses.”
Moving premises in 2011 to a more prominent site was another milestone in his career to date.
The Ray White Invercargill also held a home and garden tour in 2012 and raised over $46,000 in one day for Ronald McDonald House in their city.
“The best experience I’ve had was definitely raising the $46,000 in one day for Ronald McDonald as it brought the whole team together and was a huge effort,” he said.
And in 2014, the team merged with First National to double their staff and salespeople workforce.
