Raine and Horne

Bringing Expertise to the Bush with a wide variety of clients aiming to invest in regional Australia including listed companies, corporates, finance companies, as well as family-owned farms, and off-shore investment funds. Nevertheless, selling large scale rural properties is a very different business from the sale of small farms. To begin with, the scale of landholdings is breathtaking. In 2015 for instance, Raine & Horne Rural was involved in the sale of a 168,970 acre beef property in the Queensland tablelands, a 319,000 acre grazing property located in western New South Wales, and a 75,000 acre Riverina grazing property. Rural expansion towards 140 years The Raine & Horne brand is now 140 years old and to celebrate, the Rural brand has gone into overdrive since 2020. In July 2021, Raine & Horne scored a major coup when one of Australia’s fastest-growing wool and livestock marketing, financing and export companies, Westcoast Wool & Livestock The Raine & Horne Rural Muster addressed agribusiness trends and issues impacting rural and regional real estate markets linked with the super brand to launch Raine & Horne Rural WA to service the rural broadacre markets primarily in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Raine & Horne Rural WA operates from Bibra Lake, home to some of Australia’s largest agribusinesses and specialist suppliers providing services to many farming enterprises. The rural specialist office also services the pastoral and farming communities in the Top End. Hitting the rural market in South Australia for six In 2021, Raine & Horne Rural also ventured into South Australia scoring immediate success with the sale of the rural holiday retreat of Australia’s greatest cricketer Sir Donald Bradman for the first time in 60 years – Glenquarry Farm, a unique and historic hideaway at Crafers West on a magnificent 22 acres just 15 kilometres from the Adelaide CBD. In 2022, an office at Gloucester on the NSW mid-north coast joined the Raine & Horne Rural fold. Angus Raine, Executive Chairman of Raine & Horne, said the opening of the Gloucester office was part of a national strategy to bring the super brand’s unique ecosystem of real estate services and digital technology to the rural real estate sector. “We launched in WA and SA in 2021 and have established offices in Dubbo, Bathurst, Cowra, Parkes, Young, Wagga Wagga, Armidale, Glenn Innes, Tamworth, Moree, Wellington, Gulgong, Orange, Nowra and Inverell that give us an extensive rural footprint in NSW,” Angus said. “Our plan is to expand the reach of Raine & Horne Rural nationally and are being strategic about who we recruit. We want specialists that have the capability and skillsets to sell rural properties whether it’s an acreage in Bathurst or a major cattle station in Western Australia.” Above: Embracing rural Australia: Raine & Horne Rural’s 2023 digital strategy showcased captivating visuals on social media. 114
