RE/MAX Advanced welcomes the highly respected and much-acclaimed agent and business owner, Carolyn Drane, to the team as it also expands into a second office located in Ningi.
David Wereszczuk, broker owner of RE/MAX Advanced, said the purchase of Mrs Drane’s real estate office doubled the size of his business.
“I have been incredibly fortunate that Carolyn was desiring a move away from business ownership.
“RE/MAX Advanced is equal #1 for market share on Bribie Island and Carolyn is #1 in her market, through Ningi and Beachmere. She absolutely owns the acreage/lifestyle market,” he said.
Mr Wereszczuk has already doubled the size of his RE/MAX business since taking ownership two and a half years ago.
“Carolyn built her business – on the back of acreage and lifestyle – from nothing to one that is worth millions. Strategically, this is a massive move that expands our marketplace perfectly.”
The Ningi office has been rebranded. Accompanying Carolyn Drane in her shift to RE/MAX are her Operations Manager, and sister, Angela Le Fevre and agent John Sulkowski.
“I am very happy how this opportunity to join with David and his team arose at just the right time. I was working seven days a week both in and on my business, and you can’t do that forever.
‘RE/MAX now offers the market a number one team with additional specialisation in acreage and lifestyle properties,” she said. “The RE/MAX culture resonates with me, I can focus on my passion for selling real estate – and I should have more time to ride my horses, which is my other love. Selling my business to David was one set of reins I was happy to hand over.”
Mrs Drane was named in the country’s top 20 agents by Real Estate Business magazine last year and was consistently recognised as a ‘Top 5’ performing agent within the Eview group when working with that brand.
