“Nerida’s decision is a huge endorsement for everyone in the Ray White Group, and helps our customers be informed not influenced,” said Ray White Group Managing Director Dan White.
Mr White said he was delighted to welcome Ms Conisbee to lead a team to create value from Ray White data and market information.
“Nerida will elevate the opportunity for all our members to have better conversations with their customers on what is happening today across all our markets,” Mr White said.

“Our data insights creates strategic advantages for all our members and differentiates us from other real estate agencies. Nerida will position us as an important voice alongside other specialist data and economic research providers.
“Nerida’s position directly aligns with our Ray White Now message. She brings with her exceptional analytical and communication skills to broaden our current analysis, and explore how we can create better insights for our members and customers.”
With more than 20 years of property research experience throughout Asia Pacific, Ms Conisbee said she was looking forward to working at Ray White.
“There has never been a time where there has been more interest and speculation in the property market. Consumers want real-time insights and I am keen to work with Ray White’s members – all 10,000 of them,” she said.
