Local team reopen Ray White Chelsea

The Ray White Chelsea office closed late last year, but Ray White’s strong reputation in the area is what attracted Mr O’Sughrue and Mr Aldinger to reopen the business.

The Announcement:

Living and raising their families in the Chelsea area, real estate experts Shane O’Sughrue and James Aldinger are using their expertise to reopen Ray White Chelsea. 

The group’s Chelsea office closed late last year with the business being sold, but Ray White’s strong reputation in the area for over 20 years, as well as the strong tools and resources, are what attracted Mr O’Sughrue and Mr Aldinger to reopen the business.

After starting his career in the prestige automotive industry, Mr O’Sughrue has been immersed in the real estate industry for many years. He had always had an interest in real estate, buying his first property at the age of 18. 

Mr O’Sughrue, was now one of the top real estate agents in the Chelsea area, winning RateMyAgent five years in a row for postcode 3197. 

Mr Aldinger started his career in real estate with Ray White in 1996, after studying a business marketing degree. 

At 21 he became the sales manager and was offered a share in the business. 

Soon after, Mr Aldinger left to start his own business, but has always remained involved with Ray White. 

He said it made sense to team up with Mr O’Sughrue and open Ray White Chelsea. 

Mr O’Sughrue said he was looking forward to working with Ray White. 

“I’m really excited to kick off my first role as an owner-director with Australasia’s largest real estate group. I wanted to be in alliance with the top performing real estate company across Victoria, and given their significant history,” Mr O’Sughrue said. 

The duo have plans to grow their sales and property management businesses and continue to build a high-performing team. 

Ray White Victoria and Tasmania CEO Stephen Dullens said he was excited for the pair to bring back Ray White Chelsea. 

“We are thrilled to welcome back James, as well as welcoming Shane and their team to the Ray White family,” Mr Dullens said. 

“When two people with such strong track records make the decision to join the Ray White group, it’s a responsibility we take very seriously to provide them with the best possible resources to grow their business and provide fantastic service to their customers.

“The potential James and Shane have is extraordinary – we can’t wait to see all that they and their team will achieve in Chelsea and look forward to supporting them in achieving their business ambitions.”
