Raine & Horne Commercial, has enlisted four local real estate specialists agreeing to head up its brand on the NSW Central Coast.
The local quartet of Geoff Tilden, Brad Rogers, Sue Tilden and Naomi Rogers will lead Raine & Horne Commercial’s Central Coast operations.
Mr Tilden, who started his real estate career in commercial and industrial property sales in Sydney in the 1980s, is a director of Raine & Horne Gosford and Raine & Horne East Gosford.
He also manages an extensive commercial property portfolio. Mr Tilden launched his original residential office in Gosford with Sue Tilden, in 1990.
Mr Rogers started with Raine & Horne Commercial on the Central Coast in 2016 after cutting his teeth in the industry with Raine & Horne Commercial Penrith almost two decades ago.
In 2020, Mr Rogers was one of Raine & Horne Commercial’s leading salespeople for the number of sales transactions finishing in second place.
As an experienced property manager, Mrs Rogers will be responsible for the commercial real estate firm’s property management services.
Mrs Rogers’s experience extends to eight years in residential property and 15 years in commercial property management.
This commercial experience includes seven years with NSW State Government departments such as Central Coast Regional Development Corporation, Hunter Central Coast Development Corporation, and the Office of Strategic Lands.
Mrs Tilden will oversee administrative operations for the firm, and she has more than three decades of commercial real estate experience working alongside Mr Tilden.
Angus Raine, Executive Chairman of Raine & Horne Group, said the team represents a fantastic coup for the national commercial property brand.
“Geoff has been in commercial real estate since the 1980s and has an extensive commercial property management portfolio as well as a wide-ranging network of developers on the Central Coast. Geoff is really well connected.”Mr Raine said.
Mr Tilden has also landed many significant sales, including the sale of the former Bunnings site at West Gosford to BRW rich-lister Tony Denny for $12.5 million.
He works extensively with one of Australia’s leading private and diversified property development companies, the Stevens Group, based on the Central Coast.
“Brad is also a big name in commercial real estate on the Central Coast who is highly regarded for his professionalism and unwavering commitment to producing the best results for his clients,” Mr Raine said.
While the office will have fantastic visibility on The Entrance Rd at Erina, there are also plans to establish another office in Tuggerah. This office will cover the expanding industrial and warehousing markets in the Central Coast’s northern region, according to Mr Raine.
A PASSION FOR COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE
Mr Tilden said he is excited by the prospect of adding Raine & Horne Commercial Central Coast to his collection of residential offices.
“Running a commercial property office has always been something I’ve wanted to do,” he said.
“However, the timing has never been right. We now believe the opportunity is there, and we are going forward with Raine & Horne Commercial Central Coast 100 miles an hour.”
Mr Tilden said experience and knowledge backed by a national brand is Raine & Horne Commercial Central Coast’s point of difference.
“Whether they’re buying, selling or leasing, our clients can rest assured they’ll be dealing with the owners of the business rather than a salesperson,” he said.
“I have a massive database of contacts, and between Brad and myself, I’m pretty confident we’ve got the Central Coast covered.”
Mr Tilden is also excited about linking with Mr Rogers because of the commercial sales agent’s reputation for business ethics.
INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY DEMAND ROBUST ON THE CENTRAL COAST
Mr Rogers said stock is extremely limited in the industrial sales and leasing markets as businesses operating in this sector are ticking along well and need more space.
“Those businesses on the Central Coast not relying on supply chains overseas have bounced back very well and are doing more manufacturing locally than before the pandemic and now have more orders and need bigger spaces,” Mr Rogers said.
“This demand means the industrial property market in this region is very liquid, and owners are achieving better sales prices than we’ve ever seen, especially if the buyer is an owner-occupier.
“Consequently, if an owner is thinking of selling an industrial property, the timing right now couldn’t be better…”
