Red Beach couple Dylan and Sharon Turner are upbeat about real estate and have invested in it too, taking on the Ray White franchise for Ōrewa and moving into the big, high-profile building (formerly the ANZ) at the highway end of Florence Ave.
Sharon says they’ve come a long way – in the early days, they were working for Ray White from home, before expanding into the Westpac building by the Nautilus.
The most recent move has provided a flexible, open space for the team of Ray White agents and Dylan says, importantly, it has also given them more ways to showcase vendors’ properties.
It includes an auction area with a big screen to showcase properties and multiple breakout workspaces, including hot desks and a silent pod.
There are public-facing screens too, and space planned for 75 property cards in the large windows.
Dylan, who has been in sales for more than 10 years, says the team has a strong culture that includes ongoing links with the community, supporting local sports clubs and charities.
Sharon has her salesperson ticket, but says she loves the administration side of things, and that is her main focus.
The pair has worked together on and off, since they were in their 20s.
“We complement each other,” Sharon says. “The building has given the business a new start and we are feeling positive and excited.”
