Ray White Joins LJ Hooker To Make One Big Agency

Two offices combine to create one office with the largest regional market share.

Two of the biggest names in the business have joined forces and talent after competing for many years in one of the hottest markets in Australia.

LJ Hooker Green Square / Waterloo has announced it is merging with Ray White Green Square / Botany, creating one "super" office which will service the inner and south-east Sydney market.

They will operate together under the LJ Hooker brand.

Directors of the current LJ Hooker office, Brendon and Diana Clark, said they were excited about the new partnership.

Mr Clark said, "This collaboration has been a long time in the making."

"When [Ray White principal Billy Couldwell] saw what Diana Clark and I were doing at LJ Hooker, he realised how we could grow our businesses better together to better serve local residents and investors. We’re both customer-centric and there’s good synergy between our teams."

He said once the offices are combined, they will have the largest market share in Botany, Mascot, Rosebery, and Waterloo.

The merger will create one office with a team of 20 salespeople, property managers, and support staff, which will "ensure an unrivalled level of expertise and customer service."

Considering there is $13 billion in new construction just in the Green Square precinct, Mr Clark said the merger comes at just the right time.

"Green Square is one of Australia’s fastest-growing neighbourhoods, and by 2030, it will be home to more than 61,000 people.

"Investors, tenants, buyers and sellers will need exponential real estate support and our team is equipped to service this growth.

"There’s no denying the entire area is fast [growing into] an urban metropolis where residents can live, work and relax."

Mr Billy Couldwell, of  Ray White, also said he was excited about the future.

"I’m very confident with LJ Hooker as a brand. I feel I can work well with Brendon and we can add value to each other’s businesses.

"I know our teams will work well together and will provide a seamless customer experience for both our current clients as well as our future clients.

"Together, we will continue to hold main market share of the whole Green Square precinct and Botany and this will continue to strengthen."
