Well-known local agents, Nici Godwin and Nathan Fry have taken over the existing Ray White Goolwa | Victor Harbor office in South Australia.
Having both worked as agents on the south coast for the majority of their careers, Ms Godwin and Mr Fry say it was a natural progression to step into business ownership.
“Nothing about our service will change – it will still be the one-on-one experience we’ve always provided to our clients. The only difference is we’re now equipped as business owners to introduce more tools and resources to create an even better journey for our clients,” Ms Godwin said.
Both Nici and Nathan worked together at Ray White in 2004 – Nici as PA / office manager and Nathan in administration.
After a few years they each changed directions and worked in other organisations while extending their experience into sales. They both became very reputable salespeople on the south coast – Nici being based in Goolwa and Nathan in the Victor Harbor region.
Nici and Nathan have always shared a solid respect for each other in the industry and have always been connected through friendship despite working for different companies.
While their day-to-day lives have been connected through work for several years, it is now also connected by family, with Nathan married to Nici’s daughter Jennah, who will be running the day-to-day operations of the office, marketing and managing their social media profiles.
Jennah also comes to the Ray White Goolwa | Victor Harbor office with a wealth of knowledge and skills herself, having worked with Nici for several years previously and winning national awards, recognising her exceptional admin skills.
Nici and Nathan are absolutely thrilled for the opportunity to now be principals of Ray White Goolwa | Victor Harbor and to be able to work together.
“The timing is right and the opportunity to work with such a reputable company such as Ray White is something we are both extremely excited about,” Mr Fry said.
“We have a similar work ethic and strongly believe our combination will be our biggest strength moving forward,” Ms Godwin said.
Both long-time locals of the area, Ms Godwin and Mr Fry are passionate about their community.
“We love what we do and are passionate about our work and the area we live in. Our plan is to build a business that will support all facets of property so no matter what our community needs, we’ll be able to help them,” Ms Godwin said.
Ray White South Australia & Northern Territory CEO Matt Lindblom said he was delighted that Ms Godwin and Mr Fry have decided to take this next step into business ownership.
“Ray White is a proud fourth generation family owned business and it’s so good to have another family joining the group, with Nici, Nathan and Jennah.
“I remember talking with both Nici and Nathan a number of years ago and I thought back then, they would run a very successful family business together, so it’s really exciting to see this come together,” Mr Lindblom said.
“Nici, Nathan and Jennah collectively have over 30 years experience in real estate. They are all local and passionate about providing the very best results and service for all of their customers.
“We really look forward to this next stage of their already successful real estate careers. I know they will build a great team on the south coast for the benefit of all their clients.”
