Last Saturday approximately 70 individual walkers and teams set off at the crack of dawn to walk the fundraiser trek for local girl, Atea Kahutapu Haenga – Te Wheoro. Leaving the golf course at 5am, they embarked on a 43-kilometre walk around Mt. Karioi with the last walkers crossing the finish line a solid ten hours later. “It wasn’t a race but the front runners made it competitive! The younger and fitter participants were definitely pushing themselves a bit,” said organiser Dave Hanna.
With major sponsors Greenslade Excavations and Ray White Raglan providing support to the group of walkers along with the St. John’s ambulance crew, the 70-strong contingent even had a mobile port-a-loo follow them around the mountain. While the West Coast walk took place, a similar fundraiser of 43kms was held over on the East Coast as well, organised by Atea’s mother’s family in Gisborne. “For me personally, it was such a neat experience to see all the family and friends come together and working to turn this walk into a great event,” said Dave Hanna (Pictured)
All funds will go toward helping the family with on-going medical and transportation costs for Atea – who was recently diagnosed with a Wilms’ tumour in her right kidney. While the final figures for how much was raised are yet to come in, organisers were wrapped about the day’s success. So successful in fact that they hope to turn the walk into an inaugural event to raise funds for a different charity every year.

Ray White Raglan has been appointed to auction a spaceship which sits on leased land just in excess of 1,000 sqm. A unique and iconic property that has drawn a lot of attention over the years, this spaceship is an original and just needs some TLC to bring it back to its former glory. The property, located right opposite the harbour entrance, has extensive views together with an easy walk down to the waterside. The property also has three car garaging and is described by marketing agent Julie Hanna to be one of the most unusual properties that the Ray White Raglan team has ever been appointed to in her long career of selling real estate in the Raglan region. She said that the property sits on leasehold land and could be a perfect holiday getaway, short term accommodation or permanent living.
Co-marketing agent Stephen O’Byrne said the location of the property is outstanding and high interest is expected to be received on the property, which is going to auction on site at the property on the 2nd March. He said they had created a video for the property which gives a very good indication of the unique make-up of the spaceship.
For more information on the spaceship located at 115 Riria Kereopa Memorial Drive please contact the marketing agents Julie Hanna and Stephen O’Byrne.
Ray White New Zealand is proud to recognise the re-commitment of the owners of Raglan Real Estate Ltd, Dave and Julie Hanna, to the Group for a further term.
The Raglan office has a proud history with the Ray White Group. The office first joined in 1997 as part of a major repositioning of the brand then known as Ray White United in the Waikato region and has consistently held a dominant market leadership position in Raglan and has a market share in excess of 75%.
In talking about the re-commitment to Ray White, Dave Hanna said “The business is very much based on the highest of service levels through our belief in auction marketing. It provides our business with a distinct point of difference, which we believe gets the very best results for our clients.”
Julie Hanna is the auctioneer for Raglan Real Estate and has completed over 400 auctions. She said that when they took on a consistent programme of auctions the business changed and market share has continued to grow since that time.
Carey Smith, Chief Executive of Ray White New Zealand, said having Dave and Julie re-commit to the Group continues to provide us with significant strength in their region. “They are our leading business in market share and have established one of the best auction cultures in our company.”
The Raglan office is located Bow Street and their selection of property can be found through their office website at rwraglan.co.nz.
Ray White Raglan have successfully completed the highest priced property sale in the area on Wainui Road, Raglan over looking Manu Bay for a price of $1.8 mil. With stunning Ocean views the property was described as anexceptional and superbly crafted designer home with six bedrooms and three living areas situated on 873m2 of prime real estate with stunning views.
The property was marketed by Dave and Julie Hanna for Auction with an extensive marketing program which included the Waikato Times, premium placement on trademe, local radio advertising and an e-brochure distributed to 850 clients on the office database. Dave Hanna described the sale as being special, he said that in marketing the property there was a lot of interest but given the price indications and the level of interest, finding the actual premium buyer came down to the Auction process and the focused marketing. Given that it was a record sale price in Raglan in today’s environment it made the sale even more important and shows the confidence that Raglan continues to attract from buyers.
The vendor of the property, said it was a fantastic result, they were pleased to be able to get a sale after having the property on the market with several agents previously. They went on to complement the Ray White Raglan team, for their unassuming determination and their ability to negotiate the highest price for us. Ray White Raglan is the market leader in the area, with a market share now of just over 60% the office has already marketed 28 Auctions so far this year, and have a high success rate.
