From humble beginnings in 1902, Ray White built his business upon the sale of livestock and rural properties from a small town in rural Queensland, Crows Nest. Today, Ray White is still proudly a family owned and led company. His grandson Paul White is the chairman of Ray White Rural and Livestock today. From a single office in country Queensland, to a network that extends across ten countries, the White Family Group is a true Australian success story that has since expanded to New Zealand and across Asia. But far from losing touch with our roots, the group has a proud rural and livestock network which continues to grow.
The Ray White Rural & Livestock journey
Annually, Ray White Rural achieves $1.33billion in property sales through nearly 100 rural offices from Dalby to Dubbo, Western Australia to Wodonga, Mt Gambier to Mount Isa, the Clare Valley, the Hunter Valley and everywhere in between. We have over 350 specialist rural agents across Australasia who actively work with each other to get the best result for clients nationally and internationally. Each year we help 3,000 families buy, sell, upgrade or downsize their farms and rural holdings. Today, we’re the single biggest marketer of rural property in the nation* and conduct the largest volume of rural property auctions, plus we’re one of the biggest agencies for online livestock sales**.

Paul White’s life in the bush began as a jackeroo at age 19. He acquired a property outside Condamine after a few years where he raised cattle and grew wheat. In the early 80’s the big smoke and the family business beckoned where he managed to combine his love of the land and real estate into one business, Ray White Rural. This business now has 80 odd offices throughout Australia and New Zealand.
