A ‘Renovation Celebration’ has taken place at Ray White Motueka. Licensee Agent / Principal Alan Atkins said last Thursday’s unveiling of the ‘new look reception renovation’ afforded an opportunity for local professionals involved with Ray White to get together and celebrate both the renovation and growing business confidence here in Motueka and surrounds.
“In one form or another we have been in the real estate business for a long time with almost 20 years now as a member of the Ray White Franchise,” Alan said.
“It is a great privilege to belong to one of Australasia’s largest real estate group. The business tools, support and relationships that the franchise brings to us are invaluable. “This support is perhaps strongest at the regional level. Within the Nelson/Tasman region we have three other independent Ray White franchises and I would like to thank Marc and Susa from Nelson, Ting, Brent and Grant from Richmond and Billy from Golden Bay for all their ongoing support and for Marc, Susa, Ting, and Brent for coming along today to share in our celebration.
“I would also like to acknowledge my team, I am very proud, of how they have risen to the challenges and the constant change in our industry.” Alan, in a speech to those who attended the renovation celebration, also thanked Berny Chamberlian, their office administrator, whom he said ‘took the brunt of the renovation disruption working for weeks with a temporary desk, the noise and the dust. Thank you for taking it so well’.
Alan also told those at the evening that Cliff Satherley and Greta Harris from the property management team, also had a much improved space and were enjoying the quieter working environment.
Last but not least Alan thanked the dedicated sales team Jo Chapman, Mary Kilmartin, Min Janssen, Karen Holliday, Nicola Chambers, Jacqui McCullough and Anne Gardner. Who kept on working though out the renovations.
With many of the tradespeople coming to the opening, Alan went on to thank: “Craig O’Styke for the demolition and rebuild, Malcolm “Mr Electrical”, Philip Shee for the gib stopping, Mark Christoffersen for the painting and Bob Spence from Flooring Xtra.
As a group thank you for getting it right the first time and bringing the project to completion so smoothly.
“I think I can speak for the whole team when I say that we are very pleased with the results of our renovation, the overall effect of a lighter, brighter environment has made it a much more productive and inspiring place to work. Looking toward tomorrow I am confident we have the best resources and the finest people to continue to move the business from strength to strength in to the future,” Alan said.
