Raine & Horne is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Gary Hassett as the new Queensland State Manager, effective immediately. With over 21 years of extensive real estate experience in both the UK and Australia, Mr. Hassett brings a wealth of knowledge to his new role, having excelled as an agent, established an independent office at the young age of 24, and most recently served as a franchise manager for another real estate network. In his capacity as Queensland State Manager, Mr. Hassett will oversee Raine & Horne’s 60-plus offices across Queensland and the NSW Northern Rivers region, succeeding Mr. Steve Worrad, who will transition to the role of Growth Manager, focusing on expanding Raine & Horne’s presence in the region.

Mr. Angus Raine, Executive Chairman of Raine & Horne, expressed confidence in Mr. Hassett, stating, “Gary’s strong background in business growth, recruitment, and franchise expansion will play a pivotal role in supporting our existing offices, and he will work with Steve to continue to drive our expansion across Queensland.”

Acknowledging Mr. Worrad’s significant contributions since 2013, Mr. Raine praised his dedication and expertise in growing Raine & Horne’s presence across Queensland and the Northern Rivers region, as well as his role in corporate achievements such as the recent expansion into the New Zealand market, where Raine & Horne now operates 70 offices.

Mr. Hassett expressed his admiration for Mr. Worrad’s accomplishments, aiming to uphold his legacy of expansion while focusing on further developing Raine & Horne’s office network in Queensland and the Northern Rivers region.

Regarding his vision for growth and collaboration in Queensland, Mr. Hassett emphasized a focus on quality recruitment and support for existing sales and property management teams. He highlighted the advantages of operating within a larger brand like Raine & Horne, where responsibilities such as marketing, compliance, and social media management are taken care of, allowing principals to concentrate on business development.

Furthermore, Raine & Horne has strengthened its presence in New Zealand with the appointment of Mrs. Romilly Ashkettle as Group Manager. With her extensive experience in property management and account management at VaultRE, Mrs. Ashkettle is poised to make significant contributions to the success of Raine & Horne’s New Zealand network, particularly following the integration of the Mike Pero Real Estate Group into their operations.
