Raine & Horne who are celebrating 135 years of operation in 2018, has launched into the New Year with an office in Ascot, Brisbane.
The office will be led by Adam Duffus, who has extensive sales, real estate and retail experience. Apart from owning a successful independent real estate business in Toowoomba between 2013 and 2017, Mr Duffus owned and operated several Harvey Norman franchises in Queensland and New Zealand.
Raine & Horne Ascot will deliver sales and property management services Ascot, Hamilton, Clayfield, Nundah, Hendra and Wavell Heights.
As part of the launch, Mr Duffus has enlisted the services of inner northside real estate sales ace Lucas Wilson.
“Lucas has been around for a long-time and has worked for all the major real estate brands and knows the inner north real estate markets like the back of his hand. He’ll be a major asset to our business,” says Mr Duffus.
Raine & Horne Ascot will offer both sales and property management services.
The Brisbane market is still very affordable compared to Sydney and Melbourne, yet suburbs such as Ascot, will continue to achieve annual average growth of close to 7% in 2018, predicts Mr Duffus.
“We saw some strong results in the luxury market last year, with interstate and overseas buyers snapping up our higher-end homes. It’s fair to expect this trend to continue in 2018.”
