Carey Smith, Chief Executive of Ray White New Zealand, said “The record number of offices joining the Group in 2011 was directly attributed to the growth activities of the company. The real estate industry from an agency level is becoming more polarised; the requirements from business owners, salespeople, property managers and expectations from vendors are now much higher than they have ever been. We would attribute part of the growth directly to our industry leading technology and our continued ability to be able to resource our group to maximise returns for each of the stakeholders, including vendors, who entrust Ray White.”
The Ray White Group in New Zealand now stands at 133 offices and with the opening of Cambridge, Pt Chevalier and Wellington City next week, the Group will have added a new office every three weeks during 2011.
The Ray White Group is pleased to announce the opening of a new office in Napier (West Quay area). The new office is located on Lever Street in Ahuriri directly opposite the Quay area. This area is also home to other well established names and a growing number of restaurants and eateries. The office is under the ownership of Phil Hogg and Virginia Wilson, who are high performing salespeople in their own right. They have established the business on the basis of their own profile and this has already created a number of new listings for the office.
The Napier region is well known for its diversity of property from the areas of Napier, Taradale through to other regions of the Hawkes Bay including Havelock North and Hastings. The diversification of property, particularly in Napier, takes in the waterfront through to residential housing as well as small lifestyle properties. The Napier area has a population of 60,000 people with just over 24,400 rateable properties. The average sale price for the region for residential houses is $315,000 with approximately 80 sales on average occurring each month.
The new office has commenced trading and Phil Hogg commented that he believed the office location would be of benefit to clients and customers. He said “We intend on having the office utilised as an auction venue and this should create good interest in the local prices for the area.”
Chief Executive of Ray White Real Estate, Carey Smith, said he was delighted to have Phil and Virginia on board. “They will pave the way for new energy in the real estate market through the region and given their previous successful sales, this will stand them in good stead for their business ownership in Napier.”
