Raine and Horne Lane Cove is celebrating success this month as they mark their two-year anniversary.
When Raine and Horne Lane Cove first opened its doors on 1 August 2017, it was just the three principals running the office with no other staff members, no market share and no rent roll.
At the time top-selling local agents Stuart Bourne, Nathan Westerbrink and Alex Banning were at the helm with big dreams of firmly establishing their own successful brand.
Two years later, Raine and Horne Lane Cove now has 13 staff members (and are currently on the hunt for two more), while their team comprises nine sales agents including Rebecca Mitchell, Hazel McNamara and Mary-Anne Fitzgerald.
The office now boasts a 33 per cent market share in Lane Cove and Lane Cove North and are the number one selling agency out of the 38 agencies that have sold in Lane Cove in the last 12 months (according to ratemyagent). They have also grown their rent roll organically to a healthy size.
Along the way they’ve racked up a host of accolades. Raine and Horne Lane Cove has been awarded the 2019 agency of the year for Lane Cove and Lane Cove North by ratemyagent.
Principal Stuart Bourne was ranked No 9 residential real estate agent in Australia by investment research house SQM Research and was awarded 2019 agent of the year for Lane Cove North by ratemyagent.
Meanwhile, senior sales agent Rebecca Mitchell was awarded 2019 agent of the year for Lane Cove by ratemyagent.
When asked how he felt about where the business is now, Stuart said he was grateful for the support of staff, family, clients, and the wider community.
“It wouldn’t be possible to get to where we are today without them,” he said.
