Crow’s Nest to celebrate birth of real estate icon

The population of a rural town in Queensland will swell by one-third this Sunday [Oct 21] as an iconic brand celebrates ten years since its centenary.

Ray White will return to its roots with 500 people attending the network’s 110 year celebration at the site of the first Ray White office.

The Ray White Group, Australia’s largest residential property network with almost 1000 offices spanning several nations, started out in the rural Queensland town of Crows Nest. Members of the Ray White Group and their families will wander through the new history display in The Shed as well as the White family home – restored to its original condition – as part of the displays in the Carbethon Historical Village.

The company’s namesake once sold pigs, insurance and rural real estate in a railway siding that has been restored as a museum telling the Ray White story. Today the Ray White Group is headed by Ray’s grandsons Brian and Paul White as joint chairmen. The fourth generation continues to influence the brand: Sam White is the group’s deputy chairman, Ben and Dan White are directors, and Matt White heads up Ray White St Kilda in Victoria.

The group expanded throughout Queensland initially and today has a strong presence in each state as well as New Zealand and Indonesia. Offices have opened in recent years in India, Lebanon, Hong Kong and Malaysia.
