Raine&Horne has announced the appointment of property specialist Mark Grisdale as its new state manager.
Mr Grisdale has worked with Australia’s biggest property brands and a number of high profile independent offices in Perth and regional WA.
Angus Raine, executive chairman and CEO of Raine&Horne, said after a long career of negotiating in both residential and commercial property, Mr Grisdale is well suited to the role.
“The state manager is a new position that recognises the Western Australian real estate market’s return to form and Raine&Horne’s growth prospects across the wide expanses of the state," he said.
“Mark is a former licensee of a number of real estate offices and knows what it takes to help our existing offices win more market share, appraisals, listings, sales and property managements.
“He brings strong analytical skills to the network and he will be heavily involved in delivering Raine&Horne’s market-leading training programs to our existing offices and those who choose to link with us in 2014 and beyond.”
Mr Raine said it’s critical that Raine&Horne is led in Western Australia by a Western Australian who comes with an intimate knowledge of the state’s regional vagaries.
Mr Grisdale said he is excited to be involved in real estate in the current market.
“Interest rates are getting the middle markets going, while improved confidence and the change of federal government flushed out upgraders in Perth who are driving demand for homes in the middle price ranges,” said Mr Grisdale.
