Ray White Rural opens new business in Sydney with Andrew Starr and Bruce Birch

By Lyndsey Douglas

Ray White Rural and Livestock today announces the appointment of a Sydney-based corporate sales and marketing entity to service large scale agribusiness transactions and divestments.

The team, led by Andrew Starr (one of the group’s top rural principal) and Bruce Birch (the organisation’s national livestock director), will partner with local specialists in the New South Wales network of Ray White Rural to handle large corporate deals and complex aggregation sales. Together, they will focus on selling major agribusiness transactions as well as livestock.

The new business was inspired by the long-term success of a corporate-grassroots entity in Brisbane, Ray White Rural Queensland, directed by Bruce Douglas and Jez McNamara.The Brisbane-based business works collaboratively and exclusively with Ray White Rural’s local agents in the sunshine state helping to facilitate rural property transactions.

The new business will be based out of Sydney, and will operate statewide, Andrew Starr explained.

“The strength of relationships with family offices, corporates and international contacts based out of a capital city coupled with the local knowledge, ease of local inspections and the reputation of our agents on the ground has proven an attractive option for many vendors with major agricultural assets to sell,” Andrew Starr explained.

“This approach has worked well for vendors in Queensland for 25 years, and we anticipate it will be as attractive for clients in New South Wales,” he said.

The dual-agent approach exposes properties to a broader buyer pool, co-director Bruce Birch said.

“We’ll work with the nearby property specialist within Ray White Rural to market larger farmland parcels to prospective purchasers in the local district, to managed funds and corporates and to purchasers around the world,” Bruce Birch said.

The first listing being marketed by the new business is Tenterden Station at Guyra, 1500.72ha* of highly developed arable grazing land with subdivision potential.
