New property agents to the Victorian network in Ray White Rural made an impact at the recent annual awards with the company, with four key awards going to newer comers to the organisation.
Ray White Rural Drouin, in the state’s West Gippsland, and Ray White Rural Camperdown in the southwest were recipients of awards at the culmination of what had been a record sales year for the network.
Ray White Rural recorded six months in a row of record farmland turnover from January to July 2018, according to CEO Stephen Nell.
“There’s no doubt we have had our best year yet. In 24 years of operation, Ray White Rural has never seen so many huge farmland sales and so many record months. January 2018 was our best January on record. February was our best February, up 85% YoY. March, April, and June were all new records. And May, well it wasn’t just our best May, it was our best month in history and the first time we’ve ever broken the $200million turnover mark for rural sales,” Stephen Nell, CEO, said.
This year, more rural agents in Ray White’s network achieved the top honours of becoming a Chairman’s Elite, Alan White Elite, and Premier than ever before.
Dale Atkin, pictured, of Ray White Drouin was the state’s best performing rural agent, and the second-best rural agent in the country, achieving Alan White Elite state. The achievement equates to Dale being in the top three per cent of all members of the 12,000-strong Ray White group across 11 nations.
“Dale has only been with Ray White around 18 months, and his reputation and delivery for his clients has been exceptional,” Mr Nell said.
Dale’s principal, Vince Di Grazia, achieved Premier Status, as did new principal of Ray White Rural Camperdown, Davina Pickles.
All are new additions to the growing brand in rural Victoria.
A long-serving member of the Victorian network, Rob Hosking who recently opened a second business in St Arnaud, was celebrated for his significant contribution to farmland sales and the Ray White Rural brand over a decade with the organisation.
