Well-known and respected real estate business owner and agent Ray Johnson has officially made the move to Ray White, in the idyllic Ohope Beach in the eastern Bay of Plenty.
The Ohope Beach office will be 172nd location across New Zealand for the Ray White network.
His existing business, Ohope Beach Realty has been a local go-to for local real estate services and is now backed by the strength of the Ray White brand.
“After interest from numerous real estate groups, I decided that Ray White was the best fit,” Mr Johnson said.
“I was drawn to the company after many of my real estate colleagues over the years had transitioned across and spoke of the phenomenal support and resources the group offers.”
Mr Johnson started his impressive real estate career in 2001, receiving the REINZ Award of Excellence for most promising agent in his first year in the industry. Soon after, he entered into business ownership, buying and running four successful offices in the Waikato, which he has since sold.
His Ohope Beach business currently has four licensee salespeople, a property manager and executive administrator.
“Our priority is on our customers and providing them with the exceptional experience that we are known for.”
The business already has a strong rent roll, which they have plans to expand even further over the next 12 months.
“We are looking to grow the business and recruit talent in the sales and property management space.”
The Ohope region is known for its sunshine, warm waters and it’s abundance of coastal reserves and beaches.
“We service the Ohope and broader Eastern Bay of Plenty area, which has so much natural beauty and real estate opportunity,” Mr Johnson said.
Ohope has been voted NZ’s Most Loved Beach many times and is a popular tourist destination for both local and international travellers.
“The area is characterised by substantial beach homes, many of which have been beautifully restored over time”
“The populations swells enormously over summer, with hundreds of people wanting to rent a holiday home” My Johnson said.
Over the next 12 months, the main focus for the team will be on maintaining their high-performing status by continuing to serve their community with the best customer service.
“We see huge potential in moving our business over to Ray White and having the support of the passionate corporate team,” Mr Johnson said.
“Our group continues to expand across New Zealand and to have Ray and the Ohope team on board will further at strength to our regional business.” Mr Smith said.
