In today’s interview, we speak with the Principal and Director of Raine and Horne Newtown, Gerard Hill. Gerard strives to make Raine and Horne Newtown the number one agency and a constant innovator in the Sydney marketplace. Gerard is recognised as a thought leader by the franchise and has been a recipient of the prestigious Graeme Skarrett Award. Gerard bought the business in 1999 as a humble office of six staff, and since then has grown it into an elite team of 25 outstanding real estate professionals today, with 1500 properties under management and a host of record sales under their belts.
