Raine & Horne is finishing the 2016/17 financial year on a high, launching a new office in Coorparoo led by Mark Evans, who was recently head of real estate advertising at News Corp.
Raine & Horne Coorparoo, seven kilometres from the centre of Brisbane, provides sales and property management services to owners in Coorparoo, Camp Hill and surrounding suburbs.
Prior to News Corp, Mr Evans was involved in launching the National Tenancy Database, reducemybills.com.au and TenancyCheck.com.au, while working as Head of Real Estate Products at Veda, a credit reporting agency and data analytics company.
“As the creator and advocate for some of Australia’s leading real estate products, Mark’s extensive knowledge of real estate and marketing truly sets him and Raine & Horne Coorparoo apart from the rest,” said Group Executive Chairman and CEO Angus Raine.
“Mark brings a unique set of marketing skills and knowledge of the real estate market in Queensland, and I’m looking forward to working with him as he expands his new business.
“Raine & Horne Coorparoo will be an excellent addition to our group. It’s the 30th new office we’ve added to our team in Queensland in the past 2 years.”
Mr Evans says he joined Raine & Horne because it has achieved rapid growth without taking what he calls a “saturation approach to opening and developing new offices.
“Raine & Horne has an open business model and they are more concerned with providing quality services to their offices, rather than saturating the market with too many offices that end up competing with each other,” Mr Evans said.
Mr Evans said his approach to marketing and customer service will make a difference to Coorparoo’s owners and buyers.
“I’m from a professional services background, where I am used to working with clients such as the top 4 banks. I believe I can bring my 10 years of marketing experience and real estate knowledge to the sale of properties in Coorparoo, Camp Hill and Holland Park.
“Ultimately my goal is to deliver owners and buyers all the detailed information they need, making the process of a real estate transaction as easy and as understandable as possible,” said Mr Evans.
