Raine & Horne Commercial Newcastle is back in Hunter Street Newcastle and will led by Mr Cody Bice and Mr Brad Wallace.
The dynamic real estate duo will lead Raine & Horne Commercial Newcastle on its next phase of expansion, including ramping up in commercial sales and leasing team in rapid fashion.
“Raine & Horne Commercial is part of the fabric of commercial property markets in Newcastle, and it’s exciting Brad and Cody will lead the next chapter of our brand’s expansion in Newcastle,” said Mr Angus Raine, Executive Chairman, Raine & Horne Group.
“With so many major businesses and SMEs from Sydney seeking to move to NSW’s second capital, their knowledge of the Raine & Horne Commercial brand will make the shift to Newcastle far more seamless for them.”
Mr Raine continued, “Brad has more than a decade of commercial sales and leasing real estate experience following a stint in business broking, and Cody’s been in property management since 2015 and together, they know the Newcastle commercial market like the back of their hands.
“I’m looking forward to working with Brad and Cody to bring Raine & Horne Commercial’s unique commercial property services and products to lessors, lessees and business owners in Newcastle.”
Full-service commercial office
Before launching Raine & Horne Commercial Newcastle, Mr Bice and Mr Wallace worked as part of the team at Raine & Horne’s offices at New Lambton, Wallsend and Mayfield, co-owned by Mr Colin Bice, Mr Tony Tolazzi and Mr Craig Fennings. Mr Bice, Mr Tolazzi and Mr Fenning are co-owners of Raine & Horne Commercial Newcastle.
Mr Wallace said, “Raine & Horne Commercial will not only deliver commercial property sales, leasing and property management but will also provide business sales services to the city’s small business owners.
“Business broking and commercial property services are all intertwined as small business owners are usually part of these transactions,” he said.
“We are one of the only agencies in Newcastle that can sell businesses, such as cafes and restaurants, as well as the commercial properties where they operate. We will also sell freehold businesses and buildings.”
He continued, “We will also keep growing this service combination through the Raine & Horne Commercial brand and with the support of our Group’s systems and technology, which we believe is second to none.”
Raine & Horne is second to none
Mr Wallace confirmed that Raine & Horne’s systems and the technologies promoted the duo’s decision to take on the ownership of Raine & Horne Commercial Newcastle.
Mr Bice agreed, “The services Raine & Horne provides are without peer compared to other brands and is in the top tier of groups. That is why it was a no-brainer for us to take on Raine & Horne Commercial Newcastle.
“Whether it’s the social media marketing tool Amplify or the CRM CompassPlus, Raine & Horne provides every level of corporate support that lets us get on with the business of supporting small businesses in Newcastle.”
Apart from the systems and technology support, the new principals praised Raine & Horne’s Corporate team. Mr Wallace said, “I can’t get over how much Raine & Horne Corporate has supported us. National Head of Growth & Network Manager Tina Ashton has been marvellous support.
“Tina goes above and beyond and genuinely wants us to succeed. Not many people do that in life or business.”
Perfect time for the next phase of Raine & Horne Commercial Newcastle
Mr Wallace said the timing of the Raine & Horne Commercial Newcastle move was impeccable. He noted, the commercial property market in Newcastle will benefit from developing the CBD and the light rail, while there are plans to start livening up the Hunter Street precinct soon.
“We’ve got our high-rise residential apartments popping out of the ground, 13, 14, 15, 20-storeys high and had hundreds of millions of dollars pumped into the Newcastle economy in the last five years.
“Consequently, there’s a lot of major national organisations looking to move their head offices to Newcastle, due to their employees wanting to get out of the major cities yet still have all the amenities associated with big city living.”
Mr Wallace continued, “Newcastle is one of the fastest-growing cities, outside the capital cities in Australia and the relocation here of major corporates will drive demand for office, and retail space shops and there are industrial subdivisions popping up everywhere with commercial sheds and industrial warehouses.”
Mr Bice added, “We are all very excited about moving to the Newcastle CBD and being at the hub of it all is pretty exciting for both of us. There’s also much goodwill around the Raine & Horne Commercial name in Newcastle, being able to tap into a national brand and the intellectual property of a network of over 30 offices around Australia.”
