Ben joined the NSW corporate team, as a Business Development Executive, after selling his Ray White business’ in the Illawarra in 2009.
Running multiple offices, Ben developed the appropriate skills to take his office to the top five regional Business’ in the Ray White Network every year since joining in 2002 with his business partner Robert Anstee.
Being heavily involved in the growth of the Ray White Illawarra network, Ben is aware of the importance of running a cohesive and focused network. This was realised when the Illawarra group of offices surpassed 25% market share, off the back of the very principles Ray White stands for. The highest Market and people share, by the length of a straight for that region.
On the back of this achievement, Ben and his business partner Robert Anstee were recognised for their outstanding contribution to the growth of the network in 2004, by winning the Directors Cup at the annual awards.
