Sales growth prompts Brisbane property guns to expand network
The growing turnaround in Brisbane’s property market has prompted the capital’s property big guns Haesley Cush and Matt Lancashire to expand their growing Ray White Queensland network.
In an exciting step for Ray White Queensland, two of the network’s best regarded and top business owners are expanding from their established markets in New Farm and Spring Hill across the Brisbane River.
Ray White New Farm owners Matt Lancashire and Haesley Cush, together with two of their top agents from New Farm, Scott Darwon and Brandon Wortley, will now trade as Ray White Bulimba to service the vibrant inner-city riverside community, buoyed by boon in sales across the Brisbane market.
This new venture is pegged as an opportunity for the combined teams to chase its potential and facilitate the development of a growing crop of ambitious leaders.
Four of Ray White Queensland’s top operators — who are all aligned with the group’s family values — will take their high-performance culture across the river into Bulimba with huge success.
Mr Cush said: “We are very excited to be getting into Bulimba in a big way. It’s a really good fit for us. We love the energy, the village vibe and the riverfront properties. This is exactly our sweet spot.”
The announcement comes as part of a long-term plan within the cadre of high performers, with Mr Crush adding: “We have never been shy about our ambition to create a multiple-office network within the Ray White Group. We both have an extremely tight relationship with the White Family and believe that partnering with the Whites, while driving our own businesses, will be able to offer our clients and staff the support and exposure unable to be offered by any other real estate group.”
Bulimba is known for its famous village charm with contemporary elegance. The suburb is home to classic old cinemas, art galleries, bookshops, alfresco eateries and beautifully renovated Queenslander houses, making this district a great place to visit and explore.
Mr Lancashire, who has long been a prestige property specialist and the top sales agent in Brisbane, was excited to list and sell on “both sides of the river, so to speak”.
“For a long time now, many of our buyers and sellers have come from Bulimba and surrounds, so it is a natural fit for us to expand. The opportunity presented itself, so we grabbed it with both hands,” he said.
Ray White Queensland CEO Tony Warland expressed the company’s continuing support for the ambitious plan, saying the company has long supported the pair’s plan for a multi-office group to create a one-stop shop for inner-city buyers and sellers.
“Haesley and Matt are a winning combination as they are not shy of hard work and know how to market all properties in all price points. I love their energy and enthusiasm,” Mr Warland added.
Ray White Bulimba managing principal Scott Darwon said the new business was a wonderful example of “ambition meeting growth”.
“I have worked with Haesley and Matt for more than 10 years, starting as a green sales associate, so it is a dream come true to now be in business with my friends and mentors.”
Ray White Bulimba managing principal Brandon Wortley said he was pumped about the future, saying: “We have such big plans and the sky literally is the limit.”
