The New Year is already heralding new opportunities for Raine & Horne real estate.
The real estate last week opened a new office in the Eastern Sydney suburb Surry Hills.
It is hoped the new office will increase the group's marketplace identity in inner Sydney by tapping into the fashionable Surry Hills environs, an area popular with young professionals and renters.
The new agency’s co-principal Ben Treweeke said RAine & Horne’s entry into the area signals the dawn of a new era of professionalism and service for inner Sydney vendors.
"Apart from a few exceptions, there have been a lot of junior salespeople operating in Surry Hills over the years, and this has meant local vendors have not always had the experience and recognition required to achieve the best outcome for them. This is something we can deliver," he said.
"We expect to build a good cross-reference of buyers in the Surry Hills market, drawing from the eastern suburbs right through to the inner west. Surry Hills offers buyers a very similar option to Chippendale, Darlington and Newtown.”
"While the prices might initially seem high compared to other parts of Sydney, an entry-level price of $400,000 to $600,000 will secure a modest apartment in the Surry Hills area."
