Real estate agent Clint Hynes has just opened the doors to the newest Ray White business on the Gold Coast, in Nerang.
Mr Hynes, who has been a high performer at his family’s Ray White Oxenford/Helensvale offices for the past six and a half years, has decided to take the leap into business ownership.
“Real estate is such a social profession and I think when you achieve a certain standard and level in this industry you have an impact on so many people’s lives. I’m looking forward to being able to make a difference in the community,” Mr Hynes said.
After a 13-year career in the Australian Army and Special Forces community, including four tours of Afghanistan and two commendations for distinguished service, Mr Hynes joined his family’s business, run by his parents Greg and Sally Hynes.
In 2016, he was the fastest agent ever in Ray White’s long history to reach the coveted Ray White Chairman Elite group.
“You not only need like-minded people around you to shape something special, but you also need real people with skill sets which complement your own,” Mr Hynes said.
Ray White Queensland CEO Tony Warland congratulated Mr Hynes and his partner Samantha on the opening of Ray White Nerang.
“Every so often a company is rewarded by seeing some of its best members step up and take on a leadership role.
“Clint, a Ray White Chairman’s Elite member in the top one per cent of the company, brings genuine value to the local real estate market and has enjoyed an exceptional career as a high-performing sales consultant,” Mr Warland said.
“He’s now taking the next step into leadership and we look forward to supporting him as he builds his future with the community of Nerang.”
Mr Hynes has also been recognised for his efforts outside the real estate industry. Since late 2014, he has been a driving force behind the Wandering Warriors organisation – a charity initiative supporting Australian veterans and their families.
Mr Hynes has reportedly assisted in raising over $100,000 in donations, and in 2016 became an official ambassador for Wandering Warriors.
“My team and I are so dedicated to what we do. I want my local community to know that we don’t buy into the flashy real estate stereotype. Our main priority is – and has always been – our clients,” Mr Hynes said.
