Just 12 months after opening the doors, Ray White Kawana has expanded to a larger premises to accommodate the growing local market.
Directors Brent Higgins and James Goldsworthy’s new office is located in Birtinya and they credit a number of factors for their growth.
“The relocation comes off the back of 12 months of success and records for personal bests between our two businesses.
“Following the ongoing recognition from Ray White Queensland for continued personal best months, it was a logical and confident choice to expand the base of our operations,”Mr Higgins said.
Mr Goldsworthy said their team’s growth was in direct correlation to that of the Sunshine Coast market.
“Not only has our team and business expanded, so has the market we’re located in,” he said.
“Birtinya is under construction as a suburb, both in terms of residential and commercial, and with the hospital only recently completed there’s still a lot of growth to come for our core trading area.”
Aside from its proximity to beaches, the new suburb of Birtinya is part of the Kawana Waters residential development, offering apartment living overlooking Lake Kawana as well as new house and land packages.
Mr Goldsworthy and Mr Higgins say they have witnessed an increase in buyers from outside of the region relocating to the likes of Birtinya and Kawana Waters for lifestyle reasons.
“In December we saw the opening of the $87 million Stockland shopping centre, so physically we’ve moved closer to the growth hub,” Mr Higgins said.
“Our most recent figures show our local network had over 6000 inspections for the first quarter of this year, up on inspections for the last quarter of 2018. This just reiterates how strong enquiry is for this huge growth region.”
Ray White Queensland CEO Tony Warland said the need for Ray White Kawana to move into a larger premises was unsurprising.
“We’re talking about two of our strongest and most ambitious leaders in Ray White Queensland,” Mr Warland said.
“It’s a natural progression for this pair to embrace the healthy Sunshine Coast market and grasp the potential of what’s on offer.”
