When it comes to buying and selling property in Canberra, it’s hard to go past Ray White Tuggeranong.
The Lanyon-based real estate agency won the Medium Residential Agency of the Year Award at the 2015 REIACT Awards for Excellence, held last month.
With eight sales agents and a property management team, the agency holds the current record for the highest sale in the Tuggeranong Valley – $1.27 million for a six-bedroom home in Conder in 2014.
Owner Colin McIntyre runs Ray White Tuggeranong with wife Jo. Both are active members of the local community, as are their agents.
“We’re a community-focused agency. We live in Tuggeranong, and we donate money and resources to support sports teams, fetes and charities. We also run an annual golf day to raise money for Camp Quality,” he says.
Some of the groups that receive support from Ray White Tuggeranong include Vikings Triathlon Club, Hawks AFL Club, Holy Family Gowrie, Charles Conder Primary School and Calwell Netball Club.
Colin says Tuggeranong is a tight market because of a lack of new developments. But he also says that suburbs like Oxley, Macarthur and Gilmore can expect to see property values increase in coming years.
“Suburbs in northern Tuggeranong are doing quite well at the moment. They’re an attractive option for people and families who want to live somewhere a little closer to the city, and be more central.”
