Robbie Neller joins Ray White Peregian
Third-generation local real estate agent, Robbie Neller, joins Ray White Peregian.
Robbie began his career in the Peregian real estate market when he was 15 years old and has spent the last 10 years working towards his goal of owning his own office.
That dream is now realised as he joins owner of seven Ray White businesses across the Sunshine Coast, Brett Graham, to head up the new Ray White Peregian sales team.
“I first met Brett when I was 18 and went to work with him after already being involved in the Peregian property market. Joining Ray White Peregian feels a bit like coming home,” Robbie explains.
As Robbie began his career, he set himself two goals: the first was to sell his first home by the age of 19, the second was to own a business by the age of 25.
By 19, Robbie had sold three properties and as a 25 year-old is about to tick off his second goal of owning a business as he teams with Mr Graham.
“When Brett took ownership of the Ray White Peregian office in early April, an opportunity opened up to take this next step in my career and lead the Peregian sales team.
“As the market continues to gain momentum, it’s the right time to be making the move. I maintain a 30 per cent market share for houses and land that sell above $400,000 in Peregian Beach.
“With Brett’s recent purchase of the Ray White Noosa and Peregian Offices, our market share will undoubtedly continue to rise,” Robbie said.
Mr Graham says young, dynamic agents like Robbie are key to Ray White’s business model.
“Agents, like Robbie, are shaping the future of real estate. It’s great to see Robbie advancing in his career at such a young age – he will be a business owner for decades to come,” Mr Graham said.
Long-time locals to the area, Robbie’s family has been involved in property for three generations. The Neller family’s building experience in Peregian dates back to 1974 and and has armed Robbie with an understanding and knowledge of the local property market unrivalled in the area.
“My grandfather and father were both builders. They grew their business on trust and quality, and I knew from a young age that I wanted to be involved in property. Building wasn’t the right area for me which led me to start in real estate.
“The first house my grandfather ever built still stands today on Peregian Esplanade. He purchased the land in 1978 for $7,000 and the house last sold for $1.9m.
Robbie’s decision to join Ray White was influenced by the strength of the brand and the strong community involvement associated with the brand.
“In the past I have operated in an independent agency so I know the pressures of running a business. Ray White provides a support network that you don’t get as an independent agency.
“My ambition with Ray White is to offer a far superior service. I have always worked in the Peregian market and with the support of Brett and the Ray White brand I am confident that I can give my clients – buyers and sellers alike – a better way of real estate,” Robbie concludes.
