Helene Brownlee, the Principal of Ray White Beach Haven, recently accepted the award as the top growth business on the North Shore for Ray White. The growth award recognises a business that has increased its turnover on the same period in the previous year. The award is a true measure of productivity and performance within the business given that it is measured on the same benchmark as the previous year. The 2009 market was 21% better than the current market of 2010, which makes the award very poignant for these times.
In accepting the award Helene Brownlee recognised the team work within her office. She said that Beach Haven provides a diversified market for buyers and is recognised for its value and proximity to the lower North Shore. She went on to say “That team work is the biggest strength within her business and also the fact that she has been able to combine management with her own personal high level of sales.”
The Beach Haven office currently is number three in the growth award for Ray White New Zealand.
Carey Smith, Ray White Chief Executive said “It is a credit to the Beach Haven team, who have not only been recognised for their growth in 2010, but also the high level of market share the office continues to achieve. It is a clear market leader in the Beach Haven area and the leadership shown by Helene Brownlee reflects the results that the office has achieved in 2010.”
