Ray White’s moving to a new home on the Esplanade
A MILLION-dollar move will see Ray White Real Estate set up shop in a new location in Hervey Bay.
Workers are gutting the old premises of 2nd Kitchen on the Charlton Esplanade in Scarness, to prepare for Ray White to move from its address near Hoolihan's.
With the purchase and amount of work required to redevelop more than 350sq m in the new address, Glenn Fallon from Ray White said the move represented a $1 million investment in the region.
Mr Fallon said the new office would contain a number of features, including a new online research department.
The premises were sold by Knight Frank, Fraser Coast.
John Bone, from Knight Frank, said the location in the middle of the Scarness shopping district was ideal for any business.
"These properties were always going to sell quickly," he said.
The site is on the ground floor of the Eden by the Bay holiday complex and includes two units.
The first is the unit where 2nd Kitchen operated and the second is a previously empty unit next door.
Under Ray White, these two units will be combined in one huge agency, which also includes 89sq m of outdoor space.
