Belle Property has today announced the opening of Belle Property Byron Bay/Lennox Head under the leadership of well-regarded and highly-accomplished agent and principal, Braden Walters.
Braden is heavily involved in the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales (REINSW), becoming the youngest ever board member of the peak body; earlier this year, also being named a finalist in REINSW’s Residential Agent of the Year.
With more than 15 years of experience, Braden will lead the Byron Bay/Lennox Head office alongside his wife, skilled designer and agent, Andrea Walters, as well as young-gun agent, Elizabeth James.
“Since we moved up to Byron from Sydney three years ago, we have been building our network and reputation both in Byron Bay and Lennox Head. Now we are ready to take it to the next level by aligning ourselves with a brand that matches our standard for service, performance and results,” said Braden.
Braden said the property market in Byron Bay/Lennox Head is booming; attracting buyers from all over the country who are looking for a better pace of life.
“Byron has arguably the best climate in the world and it’s a unique area because it combines the relaxed and community-centric vibe of country living, with all the modern amenities you expect from a city. As a market it continues to thrive because more and more, we see people choose lifestyle over the hustle and bustle of Australia’s capital cities,” said Braden.
CEO of Belle Property Peter Hanscomb said the opening of Byron Bay/Lennox Head was as much about the people as it was about the location.
“Byron Bay is a growth market that’s attracting considerable investment. While the location is ideal for Belle Property’s lifestyle-focussed brand, it is competitive, so it was vital we entered the region with someone who was immersed in the area and could lead from the front” said Peter.
“Braden is a highly-regarded agent and he and his team have had a major impact on the market since they arrived. He is also the right cultural fit for Belle Property as he values customer service, professionalism and superior results over anything else.”
Braden said he was also attracted to Belle Property for its approach to training and development.
“I am extremely passionate about the real estate industry and am committed to making it better for everyone involved. Belle Property is a network that cares about its people and invests in their development, which results in greater outcomes for clients, and that’s exactly how I plan to run my business,” said Braden.
