A new, centrally located office space has been lauded as an ideal launching pad for the coastal NSW team off the back of recent changes in the business.
Led by Dane Queenan, who took out the fourth-place spot in REB’s Dealmakers 2021, the PRD outfit located in NSW’s Hunter region has a brand new facility to spur on big plans for the coming year.
Taking up residence in a building located in the developing shopping precinct of Salamander Bay, the franchise embarks on a new chapter as Mr Queenan takes the reins from long-time principal Bruce Gair, who opened the PRD office 21 years ago.
Mr Queenan has been with the business for 17 of those years and recently reaffirmed his commitment to the nationwide network.
On the event of the official opening of the new premises on Thursday, 2 December, Mr Queenan commented that the new building took years of planning to achieve a finished product that features “bespoke design, state-of-the-art finishes, cohesive work zones and the latest technology”.
Coupled with its sleek interior, Mr Queenan also noted that the location’s strategic positioning in the midst of a growing commercial centre would hopefully serve as an attractor of foot traffic.
“With the TAFE and new Aldi site across the road, medical centre next door and plenty of parking, this popular and growing commercial precinct is set to bring a hive of activity to our door, perfect for the needs of our clients,” he said.
“With the continued support from our loyal clients and the hard work of our dedicated team, this stunning space will be the springboard for an even brighter future. We look forward to continued success in the years ahead,” Mr Queenan added.
PRD chairman Tony Brasier expressed his confidence that the new space would help launch the Port Stephens group to even greater heights.
“Bruce Gair has built an extremely energetic and motivated team, with one of the best cultures of any real estate office,” Mr Brasier noted.
