Raine&Horne Goulburn is set for a facelift as husband and wife team take over the reins.
Zeb and Courtnie Alaia, have assumed the reins at Raine & Horne Goulburn, taking over from 20-year real estate veterans Alan and Julie Gale.
“We are excited to inherit the legacy that Alan and Julie started forging so many years ago,” said new principal, Zeb Alaia, who has worked in Goulburn since 2009.
“We plan to bring some new ideas to the business, but are committed to continuing to provide our local residents with the same excellent service and exceptional results they have come to expect while Alan and Julie were at the helm.”
According to co-principal and mother of four Courtnie Alaia, strong government and commercial infrastructure investment in Goulburn has forced vacancy rates under one per cent and generated robust rental yields above five per cent.
“Its proximity to the two capitals has made Goulburn a growth hotspot for both government and business,” she said.
“For example, the New South Wales Police Academy provides a steady stream of transient tenants and permanent workers to the regional centre.
“There is also talk of the University of Canberra opening a new Goulburn campus at the old Kenmore Estate grounds.
“If the plans go ahead, it is expected to further swell the tenant population of Goulburn and attract property investors.”
Since the takeover, the husband and wife team have completed a major office overhaul including a new shopfront and improved branding exposure.
Angus Raine, CEO, Raine & Horne, said the couple’s enthusiasm and experience will build on the brands reputation in the Goulburn real estate market.
“The previous principals, Alan and Julie, have passed the baton on to Zeb and Courtnie and we are very fortunate to have them as the principals of Raine & Horne Goulburn,” said Mr Raine.
